“Lovely Staff but Run Down Hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2010

Sierra Summit is a lovely resort with a good skiing mountain. Much bigger than we had expected. The snow was great. The Sierra Summit Inn is a different story. While the people who work there are the nicest hotel staff we have met in a long time, the hotel itself is very run down and smelly. The rooms are so tiny that I referred to ours as "the rabbit shack" and my husband as "the prison cell". The mattress was pretty bad, the TV control did not work (even though we got new batteries) and the bathroom small; but clean. At least we had a bathroom. It would appear that the smell in the corridor came from the communal bathrooms. The resort is very family friendly; we saw rooms with multiple bunk beds and probably up to 6 people in it; the evening noise level is accordingly; but the kids crash early after skiing, it appears. Our rate for the night was $130, so our expectations had not been high, as the resort is right by the slopes; no need to drive any further. The food at the restaurant was very good but pricey. Let's not talk about the food by the slopes. We hard the resort has been acquired by Kirkwood, and we hope some necessary upgrades will take place. Hopefully, they will keep the lovely staff.
