“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We stayed on the first floor facing the parking lot a few steps down from Starbucks. The unit was clean, updated , convenient and relatively quiet (compared to units facing the village). It could be hit or miss depending on the unit, but we lucked out with ours. Flat screen TVs and comfy new sleep sofa for the kids.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

I stayed at Rimfire twice, most recently the weekend of March 21, 2014, both times in a "Deluxe studio" room. The room is a good size, with full open kitchen. The furniture is a bit outdated (cabin style) and the carpet a bit dirty, but the the room in general is well maintained (fresh painting). The room had a fireplace, flat screen TV, and complimentary Internet. (Be aware, there is a wire provided; it is not wireless. So make sure you have a laptop as the wire does not work with tablets). The fireplace is really nice and helpful for drying your ski equipment over night.
I also like the convenience of having Starbucks in the building and also two Jacuzzi tubs (outdoors, in the Rimfire health center). There are lockers provided to store the skis/snowboard over night. The building is nicely located in the center of the Village central, close to everything. A small inconvenient, however, it is not adjacent but a very short walk (50 feet) to the slope.
Overall, I like the place; I will probably stay there again. It is better quality than Expedition Station (where I also stayed once).

Snowshoe the resort: The good... Beautiful, cozy, fun. The bad... The main shared pool.. missing tiles, mold, rotting wood, missing concrete, dark (4 of 6 main lights out, speaking to the attendant, they have been out for months and months and a few for over a year). The Big Top.. the big empty space.. 50% of attractions didn't work, don't waste your time.

The Snow Tube park... well we got there early and while our room was getting ready we went over the the Tubing Park and even though we had checked in they wanted us to pay $10 parking fee.. or we could drive back to the village, park in that area for free and ride the bus back.. now mind you the parking lot was half empty and it was 2pm so it was a total loss for Snowshoe as we just left and went back to get our room.

Rooms 151 & 152, 1st Floor.
Rimfire Lodge: The bad. Dark dirty poorly lit halls and garage, one whirlpool broken, no towels for the other whirlpool, no fire in lobby 4x days.

The Rooms: could hear and see into adjoining rooms, no wifi (must use neither cable) slow connection. Loud, Loud, Loud units...All night grinding, scraping, engine roaring from main street. Main access to the village resulted in a lot of foot traffic and loud talking, yelling. I would think they would want to sound proof these units. Being a corner unit, the wind was hitting from both sides and was very loud, even blowing out the pilot light on the gas fireplace.

Roads were kept in very good shape during very bad snow/ice weather.. I would drive up there in a any car.

Overall had a good trip, but would spend the money to go out West given the option.

Bottom line: Showshoe Resort: Spend the money to keep up the common areas, replace the Big Top with a ice rink (winter) roller rink (summer) or shut it down. Fix the common pools and hot tubs. And get some employees that are empowered to look beyond the parking fee of $10 and get a family of 4 to the tubing where they will spend $100... I expect more from Interwest. Interwest Snowshoe

Room Tip: Get a room on the Village side if your not slope side.. If you have to get a room near the main stre...

Long story short, Rimfire has gone downhill. I took my fiancé to Showshow for her birthday and Rimfire is absolutely disgusting. The "deluxe" room smelled and was not clean. Dirty kitchen and dirty bathroom. I called to reception and they told me there was nothing that could be done since they were full. When I originally booked I was told the rooms were updated with modern appliances, bedding and flat screen televisions. Good old bait and switch! What we got was no better than a dive hotel decorated in the 80's. We paid for two nights but decided to leave after the first night for the comforts of home. $300+ a night for this is robbery.... and we feel robbed since we paid for two nights.

First off , the location is awesome. That said we have been coming here for over 20 years. We always spent the extra money for the deluxe upgrade and it was ok but this time worst room #319 that we have stayed in. Hard bed , no tv in bedroom, in need of utensil's etc. Upon calling I was told that all the rooms in Rimfire were deluxe and you were paying for up to date appliances. If this means upgrade to dorm room status you got me. I asked what we were paying extra for and the girl either didn't care or didn't know. This attitude is very prevalent on Mountain,

Room Tip: Don't upgrade !

Although the decor is outdated, this condo has all the amenities. The outdoor hot tubs are amazing. We stayed in a one bedroom which featured a very warm fireplace, dining room table, full kitchen, and balcony. We were surprised to see the old tube TVs but we had a wonderful stay regardless.

We had a wonderful time at Rimfire, can't wait to go back. We booked 3 one BR units for 3 families. Two of us had adjoining rooms so it was nice for socializing and sharing meals. The kitchen are pretty well stocked (some units better than others) and have all appliances you need. The units are spacious and we had a nice view of the village while our friends had the sunset view--best of both worlds!
There are two large outdoor hot tubs at Rimfire and you also get access to the pool/hot tub facility next door--kids loved the water slides and swim through feature to the outside. The gym at Rimfire is 2 pieces of equipment so not great, but the spa has a nicer gym that you can use. The sauna never got hot enough for me and there were no towels at the Rimfire hot tub/gym but they do have them at the facility next door. Indoor parking is super tight and hardly worth the battle, we just used the open lot. Having a ski locker inside your bldg is great!
Staff are nice, housekeeping was very timely and friendly. Overall a great stay was wonderful, very satisfying. One note: if you are a late sleeper the activity starts early around 7 a.m. with snow clearing equipment which generates lots of rumbling and back up alarms.
