The room and amenities were great! Their ski rental shop was top notch and the best service I've had. I was in and out in about 10 minutes and the guys were very knowledgeable. I would definitely stay here again. Easy access to the slopes as well ass dining and shopping.

My first room smelled like a wet German Sheppard that urinated on the old carpet. The front desk gent was kind enough to attempt to find a room that smelled better. He went to the second room by himself, came back and said, “Not much better.” He then took me to a 3rd room let me walk in to see how it smelled. This room smelled like the same wet German Sheppard, but minus the urine smell… I asked if any rooms were not pet friendly and possibly smelled better. He said that he was afraid not, but that all of the rooms are thoroughly cleaned. Some odors just don’t come out of the paint and carpet I guess. Highly recommend brining scented candles!!! This place is seriously in need of an update and, at least, some non-pet friendly rooms!!

It’s all about expectations. Location can’t be beat if you are skiing Palisades. Right next to the funicular. But it is OLD and outdated. Hallways feel like an old college dorm. Rooms are outdated. Hotel is kept up well for what it is, but desperately needs an update.

The two of us had a relaxing two night stay at Plumpjack Inn at Olympic/Squaw Valley, North Lake Tahoe Resort mid-July. We also dined at the Cafe. A relatively quiet time, given it is off ski season, but quite a few families, hikers, bicyclists, adventurists. We had reservations for dinner in the quaint and rustic Plumpjack Cafe and Bar on a Monday evening, not too busy, but a few full tables. Not our first time here. On our way to be seated, the host steered us to a large table in the middle of the dining room, while all the window booths, perfect for a twosome, were available. I steered our way to the corner window booth, which looked far more comfortable and bright. Much better for young seniors' comfort and vision the see and read a menu. We started off with the Burrata salad and Poke cones, and a bottle of Layer Cake Rose of Pinot Noir. We thought the Burrata salad would come with some bread or toast and thought they forgot. We asked for a bit of bread, which we received a few tiny slices, finding out after there was an extra charge of $6. The salad was good, but didn't stand out. The poke cones were tasty, but very small. A two-biter. The halibut was very dry. We even overheard the group near us say that the halibut was dry. Meh. We finished with a cherry galette and scoop of house made ice cream. Although we appreciate that our time here was to relax and enjoy our surroundings, which we did, the dining experience was okay, not exceptional like it had been on our prior visits. The prices are somewhat inflated for the quality. Having our room right there was perfect to take the remaining wine back and enjoy. The outside grounds are lovely. Although this time of year, there are loads of mosquitoes, so inside eating much more comfortable. Parking was convenient. The Inn and rooms were nice. Walls were thin and you can hear kids running up and down the halls. Our view from the room was nice looking up to the majestic mountain.

Incredible heavenly stay. Absolutely loved the pool, delicious food, wine list and everyone was genuinely kind and helpful. We brought our dog and they even had a bed brought up for our furry baby! Everything is clean and neat. Love the pool area with all the birch trees around. Bikes were included and we were steps away from the Aerial tram and the Village. We can't wait to come with our kids and we may even get the Icon pass so we have an excuse to stay there in winter. Best stay in a very long time. Thank you to all the staff at the Plump Jack Inn💙

Just returned from a week at Palisades with 47 members of our ski club, staying at Plumpjack. The experience could not have been better! The hotel has a prime location, comfortable and well appointed rooms, a great bar and restaurant, and the BEST staff I have ever encountered on a group trip! Friendly and accomodating. They worked seamlessly with caterers we brought in for group breakfasts, and assisted in finding food options during a 2 day blizzard. I would stay there again anytime!!

I almost never leave one star reviews, but this place is really bad. The wine is a disaster. It is very bitter with a vinegar aftertaste. I’m not sure what’s going on here, but it’s definitely not good. The service is very bad. The servers are condescending and quite frankly just rude. I can’t say enough bad things about this place. I would suggest going anywhere but here. I hate to leave reviews like this, but I really feel that no one else should be subjected to this overpriced, painful experience. Good luck to all.

Would you rather have heat or be subjected to an incessant unbearable buzzing noise? Would you like to eat dinner? Sorry, restaurant is closed. Would you like to sleep at night? Sorry, the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything your neighbors are up to.

We arrived later on Sunday due to chain requirements on I-80. Despite a recent storm and people just leaving from the weekend, several parts of the parking lot were already cleared making chain removal easy. Check in was very easy and we grabbed a quick drink at the bar before it closed at 9pm. The desk told us about a 20% discount for rentals at the adjacent shop (which is already cheaper than across the street) saving us a bunch on a 3 day rental and the shop had no lines. The inn is across the street from the tram and we could ski to within a 100 foot walk of the hotel. Being there during the week, we had little wait for anything including no lift lines. If you are thee more than one day, the base-to-base gondola to alpine is a short walk and worth the effort. The staff gave us great food recommendations including breakfast at Wildflower Baking (also suggesting the cookies which were the best chocolate cookies I’ve had) and dinner at Tremigo (where we tried the Molcajete which was a very flavorful meal with enough food for 2). The staff were friendly and responsive. The hot tubs were great after a day of skiing. The rooms were clean and had good amenities including robes, corkscrew and wine glasses, and a fridge. I would strongly recommend PlumpJack Inn for its cost, location, and staff friendliness.

This unique inn is the exception when it comes to hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay.while attending a family wedding. The suite was spacious and we had plenty of seating. Our bed was very comfortable and we slept well in a quiet room. It is conveniently located next to Olympic Village with shops and additional dining. No car needed as Olympic Village is just across the street. The outdoor wedding couldn't have been more beautiful, and the banquet hall and conferance center were sophisticated with a rustic vibe. Loved it!
