Like Alta itself, it is hard to beat the Rustler Lodge. Friendly and unpretentious they seem to have a thorough understanding of how to run and maintain a genuine alpine lodge. The restaurant, lobby and bar have all their 60s-70s vintage charm while the the spa, pool, steam room, etc. have seen impressive remodeling so over the years. The food is 4 star, including a fabulous breakfast buffet. Rooms are just the right size, not excessive, and the dorm area is quite nice. Bar/restaurant and most rooms have commanding views of Mt Superior and High Rustler. The staff seem to love the place as much as the guest if that's any indication.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Rustler and for your kind review. We hope to remain friendly, unpretentious, and most importantly genuine regarding history here as a ski lodge in Alta. We aspire to offer our guests understated elegance and every amenity they may wish for to truly unwind, relax, and enjoy the best slopeside accomodations and skiing of their lives. Delicious food, spacious and spotless guest rooms, abundant common areas with gorgeous views of Alta and the Wasatch as well as our heated pool, Jacuzzis, gym, and roaring fireplaces are all reasons our guests and our staff genuinely love the Rustler. Looking forward to seeing you when the snow flies and with many thanks, Sheridan Davis

Couldn't be better in any sense of the word. The food, lodging, staff service were excellent. Great variety in the restaurant. Special requests were given highest priority. The meeting rooms provided plenty of privacy.

The thing I loved most about this resort was how convenient it was! It truly was a "ski-in/ski-out" resort. The most convenient I have ever seen. They picked us up from the airport, so we didn't need to rent a car. They had ski rental at the resort as well, a family size locker to hold your skis at the end of each day, and you literally just put your skis on and ski down a slope, grab a tow rope and BAM! you are at the first chair lift. It's easy enough for kids and adults of all levels. If you don't want that they will shuttle you over in a van. This would be nice if you were getting your kids to ski school because it drops you right off at the school. The close proximity is also convenient if you need to go back to your room for something or want to head in early. I love Alta and the nice range of slopes for beginners apposed to the neighboring ski resort of Snowbird. But if Snowbird is your thing (THEY allow snowboards) or you want to mix it up, the resort will shuttle you over there for the day too. The lodge has a very rustic but very classy feel to it. The rooms are spacious and the built in glove and boot dryers are a nice touch! The huge windows in the bar and dinning room give the most picturesque view of the mountain, especially when it's snowing! The lodge pays special attention to the little details like having coffee, tea and flavored water available in the lobby, small snacks etc. My husband tried the full service spa on-site for a massage and loved it! We stayed during our Spring break week, fell into a nice routine with skiing until about 4pm, hitting the outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi, then enjoying an amazing 7 course gourmet meal. What's not to love? The breakfast is amazing as well. This trip is one we had to save up for but it was well worth it! This resort is popular for good reason, so book early if you want this amazing experience.

I've been coming to the Rustler Lodge since I was a kid... I'm almost 60 now. The place has grown, but the service and hospitality have stayed OUTSTANDING for all these decades. I don't often write reviews, but the folks at the Rustler deserve some recognition for making my ski vacations nothing short of phenomenal over the years. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, at the Rustler gives great service. But beyond that they're just so kind and genuine with guest that the experience is like being part of a "club" or something. I love going there and hope to many times again!

Room tip: Ask for one with a view! Can't beat the view.
