We stayed at the Park Place Lodge for a few days over new years. The location is great. A short drive to the hill, close to restaurants and grocery stores. Our room was nice. Fairly big, was clean had a fridge, microwave and dishes/ utensils. The hot tub was a fair size and a nice size pool as well. Our room was a little noisy. We booked last minute so had a room right off the pool/hot tub so heard everything. Also was noisy after the bar shut down and people were walking through main pool area. We booked late and it was NYE so we didn’t find it too big of a deal. Would suggest a different room away from the pool though if you have the option.
We liked the convenience of having a liquor board, lounge and restaurant right in the hotel. Our only real complaint is we had REALLY long waits for our food. We tried the lounge a couple times and went to the restaurant but when told it was a 45 minute wait we decided to get it sent to our room instead of sitting and waiting. We waited over 1.5 hours for it to get to our room (we didn’t order anything fancy) and were not happy with what we got however we were tired, hungry and didn’t want to have to send it back. We always got the same excuse that they were busy and the kitchen was backed up. There was never more than 2 other tables in the restaurant when we were there. The lounge was full but if people were eating it was usually just finger food/deep fried type things. Unfortunately had to send food back twice in lounge. Once because it was ice cold and the other because they brought me the wrong thing. They did rectify things quickly both times though.
Overall the hotel was good and we would stay again. Just might venture out a bit more for meals.
