“Good, but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Pros-The room was actually quite big.
The Television was flat-screen and was large.
The beds were comfortable.
Close to the slopes, 10 minute drive
2 Hot-tubs and a pool with skylights on the roof.
The front desk was really nice and friendly.
Cons-
Low food selection
Breakfast was quite unhealthy
Standard bed separated from rim on the front
Wi-fi only in lobby
No cell phone service
Alarm clock didn't work.
Creepy, because of large hotel and hallways are like alleys in the city.
Sort of hard to control the temperature of the water in the shower.
Good for the basics, but could be better.

Stayed here for a ski vacation March 19, 2014 for three nights. The price was good for us, $49 a night web deal. Regular reservation prices are too high for this hotel due to the repairs that need to be done. Wall paper coming off, woodwork needs painting, bathrooms need caulking etc. Pool and hot tub was nice after a hard day skiing. The breakfast buffet was very low quality and room tempiture at best. Hotel charges 2 bucks regular bottle soda, go across the street and pay $1.99 for 2 liter. Best place to eat for your money's worth was across the street at Route 66. Food was really decent and a lot cheaper then on top of the mountain. If your on a budget, its good place to stay but if there were other hotels in the area, I would stay elsewhere.

I was very disappointed at the location. On Google Maps and my phone GPS, it placed the location at the top of the mountain with the rest of the lodging areas. In reality, the location is 6 miles away at the bottom of the mountain. At least it is near a Subway, which allows you to eat at a decent price. However, for breakfast, they did not have enough help to clear tables and put the food out. At least it was the least expensive place in the area.

Room Tip: This is your only option on a budget.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Snowshoe. The room was really big and very clean. The breakfast was free, fast, and good. The hot tub was wonderful. The lobby is designed for snow skiers to come in and not worry about messing up carpet, but it is still a very nice entrance. The desk personnel were friendly, and ready to help with anything. I noticed that one reviewer said that it was "run down". They must have been at a different place, because this was certainly not run down; it wasn't the Ritz Carlton, but for the skiing environment, it was just right. The price was great, and it was convenient to the slopes. What more could you ask for?

We decided to stay at the Inn to save some money since we didn't have a big group of people to split the cost of a room up top. Let me first say that staying there did save us over a $100 a night compared to up top, which is about equal to a lift ticked on the weekend. So if your wallet is tight and you are looking for a no frills, just a place to crash then sure, the Inn is a good value. However, looking back the 6 mile drive back and forth was annoying. (you can take the free shuttle, but we don't like being on someone else's schedule, so we opted to drive) The hotel was understaffed (not very welcoming), needs a good cleaning, and was outdated. Had a cold shower first night and the toilet was about to break off. Great for the college kid on a budget. Never made it to breakfast (ends at 10 am) to give a review. So, next time I will pay the extra money and stay somewhere newer and with ski in/ski out access.

Chose this hotel as it is affordable and far less pricey than the lodging on the top of the mountain. As with any place, there are pros and cons and I am very happy that I read other reviews of this inn so I knew what to expect. The following are based on my stay and experiences:
--Pros: Very affordable. Front desk staff were informative and able to print ski lift and rental tickets at the check in desk. There is a hotel bar and restaurant which the food is decent. The rooms were spacious and clean. The price of the hotel includes a morning mini buffet with limited selections but was good old fashioned "stick to your ribs" type food such as : Scrambled eggs, sausage, cereal, coffee, biscuits and gravy and pancakes. For those who do not want to drive to the slopes and shops or restaurants on the top of the mountain, a shuttle service from the hotel to get to the top of the mountain is offered that leaves every hour on the half hour.
There is an indoor pool and hot tubs. The beds were surprisingly comfortable. There is a TV in the room with cable that came in handy on evenings we wanted to relax in the room.
--Cons: Food selection at the hotel location is limited to the hotel restaurant and bar and the restaurant across the street. Not the healthiest food selections for those who are watching their intake--but then again if you are on vacation...We never tried the food across the street which was a greasy spoon and sandwich type place due to the overpowering smell of cooking grease that greeted us at the door. The rooms do not have refrigerators or coffee makers or microwaves. The hotel appears a bit dated but for the price and the area, it was not an issue. There is limited to no cell phone service connection. WIFI is available but only in common areas such as the lounges.
--My advice for other travelers: If you are driving in, bring a cooler if your wanting to have personal beverages (such as beer, etc) as we saw many other guests do. Buy some snacks that don't require refrigeration for times that you are not wanting to go to the restaurants. There is a gas station up the street that sells beverages and snack items. If you are traveling on a budget, be open-minded and consider the price you will pay is reasonable as compared to the same stay at the top of the mountain would cost at least 3 times the amount paid at the Inn at Snowshoe.

--Now for the big question...Would I return and would I recommend this place, yes, I would definitely return especially if traveling on a budget and would recommend it for others traveling on a budget.

Choosing to stay at this Inn at the base means you save money. Not a lot in the way of frills; but our room was comfortable and clean. I never heard noise from other rooms, which I really appreciated. The room had a nice TV, which was great for the one day it rained. But there is no microwave, fridge or coffee pot (I brought my own coffee maker). Beds were comfortable.
If you want the full ski resort experience, you should plan to stay on top of the hill. It is a 5 mile drive up from the Inn. Breakfast is actually quite good for a "free" breakfast. It could use more fruit, yogurt etc (healthier items).
Only one real disappointment with our stay: Our first night there we decided to eat at Inn's casual dining restaurant, Brandi's. They advertised a fajita special (with choice of shrimp or chicken, not the traditional beef..) We ordered the shrimp version. Each plate came with 2 huge, tasteless, doughy wraps - the ONLY thing in the wraps was shrimp and shredded provalone cheese. NO grilled peppers & onions, NO seasoning of any kind. These "wraps" were pressed to heat, then serve with about a tablespoon of guacamole and salsa on the side. Really poor quality. We had much better eats at the top of the mountain the rest of the trip.
