I and three friends stayed at Rib Mountain Inn in early January. We snowboarded three days, and stayed two nights at the Inn. The only major issue we had was a mix-up on a change in our reservations, but luckily they were able to give us the rooms they had promised us the month before. They even let us check in a few hours early.
Other than that mix-up, the Rib Mountain Inn is a great place to stay. It's the closest place to the mountain. Other reviews have made a big deal about the distance between the hotel and the lift, but it takes about three or four minutes to walk in boots and carrying boards. Definitely no big deal. Don't get me wrong, its definitely not a chalet on the mountain- but it is very conveniently located.
The free breakfast here is GREAT. They have a homestyle hot cooked breakfast buffet that rotates the food daily, as well as bagels, yogurt, cereal, etc., and milk and juice. VERY VERY good breakfast- one of the highlights of the stay.
Rooms were also newly renovated, very clean, and had new high-def tvs. Free Wifi. Pretty spacious for a base room, too. Also, we had a small pantry and a microwave and fridge for our personal use- saved a lot of money on lunch and dinner. Only downside is that our toilet was a bit slow to flush, but it worked out. The girl who cleaned our room when we were out did an awesome job- one of the best cleaned rooms I have stayed in.
Overall, the Inn has a very "bed and breakfast" feel to it, but in reality they have quite a few rooms. It's a good mix between bed and breakfast and hotel, I would say.
