Hotel is close to the ski area, Rooms and bathroom needs to upgrade, Restaurant service is very very slow and the restaurant menu not have to many options. The shuttle service is very good and convenient.

The staff was pleasant and helpful though I had the feeling they needed more support from management that wasn't available. The location was great for those skiing and they offered a transport bus for skiers too and fro from the mountain. My personal favorite was the views

We had a great week at Monarch Lodge. The rooms were very comfortable and we did have cell service in our room on the 4th floor. Carolyn and her staff were very helpful with any of our questions and accommodating to our requests. Thank you!! Highlights were definitely the view

I read the other reviews prior to my visit. I took them with a grain of salt, because I figured it could not be too bad. We were pleasantly surprised at check in, as the room itself was nicer looking then we expected. It went a downhill from there. The BIGGEST issue was the

Does this hotel have an elevator, and does it serve breakfast?
The elevator is on what they consider the 3rd floor and then if you're on the 1st or 2nd floor, you would have to take the elevator.

Hi Mark, This is not something we are used to as we have just opened, but I'm sure we would be able to work something out to store your packages safely. As for getting a room without a reservation, I would expect that since the summer is not very busy for us, save for a few larger events throughout, you shouldn't have much trouble booking a room depending on when you show up. If you would like to discuss further, please feel free to call the front desk and ask to speak with me. Hope this helps, Rich

When will remodeling be complete?
Hello, my name is Carolyn. I am the Operations Manager here at the Monarch Mountain Lodge. We can accommodate you parking on the lot, however we would not want to be responsible for any damages, theft or issues of any kind. Does $5 a day for the parking sound reasonable to you? If, so then I estimated it at around $90 for the duration. Just let me know, and we look forward to meeting you.

"Top floor has dormers and storage"
"Do not stay here."
"Don't stay here. They were rude and went out of their way to make it clear they didn't care."
"closest lodge to Monarch Mountain Skiing"
"Rooms on the back side (away from Hwy 50) are quieter and have a nice view of a mountain immediately behind the lodge."
$97 - $141 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
