Excellent! This is a great off season jewel. The room I stayed had a balcony overlooking the mountains for a great view. My room was a small apartment with a full kitchen. Big refrigerator, stove, microwave and utensils everything you needed to stay and cook. All of the stores and shop were open and you didn’t have to fight the big crowds that come for the winter sports. Great escape for some outdoor adventures.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms faced the mountain view and the other were over looking the ski area. The area is...

I hate to be too negative about West Virginia locales but this place needs a serious face lift. Luckily, I was able to get a much better rate with the help of a helpful golf attendant at the nearby Raven Golf Course. The price quoted to me via phone from the Snowshoe Resort Reservation Center when I called was too high ... especially when one considers the condition of the facilities and the limited amenities when I arrived. I would have been steamed had I paid the full price.

I checked in after my evening round of golf and the lobby was sweltering. The helpful and welcoming front desk clerk was trying to find a little relief from an electric fan behind the desk and assured me the room units were cooling. It was a Tuesday evening so the on site restaurant and the small lounge were both closed but it wouldn't have been very enjoyable trying to enjoy a meal in the heat.

The first thing I noticed when I entered my first floor room was a distinct musty smell. I went over to turn on the AC unit and it turned on ... but it looked like an off-brand window unit that had been fudged in to fit in the opening of a previous HVAC unit. It never could get the room cooled down.

The room looked like it was decorated in the 1990's ... but it did have a LED TV but the signal going to the TV was standard definition and glitchy at best. The bathroom was somewhat clean but dated and with signs of years of wear and tear. The real problem was the towels ... there were the worst I've ever experienced at a hotel/motel. I don't think they were dirty but the were linty and had strings/threads from other linens all over them. I did not inspect them before drting off ... one assumes a folded towel on the rack is clean. I noticed fibers flying as I dried and the towels were not very absorbent. I looked where I had tried to dry and there was lint and threads on my skin ... pretty disgusting. I checked all the linens and they were all terrible. Luckily I had put two clean bath towels in my vehicle before leaving home.

The beds were average and the sheets looked white and clean. But overall the room was musty and sticky, leaving the feeling that every surface needed a heavy cleaning and the room needed a big airing out.

The Inn has wifi available in the lobby (which was hot). I did not even try to access it so I don't know how it works. The Inn is located 16 miles from the National Radio Astronomy Observatory and falls in the heart of the "quiet zone" which appears to inhibit cell phone reception, but this is the boonies anyhow and very mountainous terrain ... even with towers coverage would be sketchy. To me this is only another reason to offer better online connectivity.

The workers were all friendly and nice but I felt sorry for them. There's not a lot of jobs in this rural area and to have to work for owners who probably live hundreds of miles away and don't care about the experience of their guests really puts them in a bad spot. If the owners don't care about the guest's facilities and experiences anymore than they do ... imagine how they treat the workers!

The ratings below are not representative of the staff ... I felt that they cared. But the maids/clerks don't remodel rooms and fix the AC. The owners have let this place really slide!

Room Tip: Bring some Lysol Air Freshener/Disinfectant and some clean linens.

Just ok. Very dated. No wifi in the room and the wifi in the lobby is jammed. Why? The whole area is cellular free, so you're competing with every other schlub to get on. Why? So the observatory nearby can observe and, I am not making this up, search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). Kind of a galactic dinner bell for struggling planets. Aside from that the room was pretty dreary, the bed overly firm and really nothing else to write home about. But then again the skiing was great. So the room wasn't much of a priority. The rate as I recall was good compared to other options. And should be. The "inn", really a big box, is at the base of the mountain. That would be great for nearly every other resort on the planet. But in the case of Snowshoe, you drive to the top of the mountain to ski down. Really.

We recently rented two 2-bedroom condos at this hotel for four families. All of us had a wonderful stay. The rooms exceeded our expectations and we would have been willing to pay more for this quality. Both condos had fully functional kitchens, full sized refrigerators, microwaves and cooking utensils !! We cooked dinner using their pots and pans and ate on their plates and saucers, using their spoons. The bathrooms even had jacuzzis. The single rooms do not have these kitchen facilities. The hotel has a pool and 2 or 3 jacuzzis for all guests. I found the customer service to be very friendly on the phone and in person. I talked with Jessica on the phone for making reservations,and she was very helpful and professional. We even got free passes, which we used for free rides on the ski lifts. The breakfast had yogurt, milk, cereal, fruit juices and some other stuff. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again. If you stay here make sure to ask the hotel for directions. (entry is from Rt 66) The GPS takes you to the wrong place, as the street address does not work very well. We got lost and had to call them. Make sure you have good written directions or a standalone GPS as the phone signal is very poor and the phone GPS does not work.

Room Tip: Recommend taking the 2 bedroom condos and sharing with a friend. Much better value.

Older hotel in need of updating. Rooms are way past due for renovation. Dining is non-existant. Bar food only, but one look at the limited menu and I was out of there. Really, just not a good hotel, but not a lot of choices in the area.

Room Tip: high floor would be quieter because then you couldn't hear the folks walking around above you.

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.
