“Great Cozy Location in Shaver Lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

I stayed at Shaver Lake recently to attend a wedding in the area. The hotel rooms looked like the picture on the internet. The hotel is not fancy but does have that old lodge look. I do wish there had been a rug in the bathroom since the flooring is old stone pebbles and it is hard on the bare feet. I was impressed with the service response from the manager. Our alarm clock was broken and he took the time to get it replaced for us. The location is close to everything and next to Ken's Market. The internet speed was a bit slow at times. The only suggestion I would make would be to have a customer printer available for printing boarding passes at the hotel. Also there was a tiny Farmer's Market on Saturday in the parking lot. I would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future.

Thank you for your review! During our walk through inspection of the hotel rooms prior to our purchase, we too were concerned about the aggregate floors in the bathrooms. From a practical standpoint, they are very durable and relatively easy to clean.......but are not comfortable to the bare feet. Maybe your suggestion of a rug would be the best bet. We are also investigating tiling over the aggregate. Hopefully we will have an acceptable solution soon. We have ordered new pedestal sinks and faucets to replace the existing formica tops. When those arrive, we should be able to address the flooring issues. Thank you again.

My Wife and I stayed one night in the newer Log Cabin and did not have a good night. We didn’t discover a few problems till the evening, and the office was closed early.

The room was clean, rustic and exactly as advertised. The first issue was the heater in the bathroom created smoke, so we decided to leave this off. This made the bathroom incredibly cold since even at full tilt the gas fireplace in the main room couldn’t pick up the slack due to the cold temperature.

At bed time we found if the pillows were any thinner, they would have disappeared. Even though the room had a pull out bed, there were no extra pillows. We made due with jackets under our heads.

The bed was as lumpy and uncomfortable as the worst flop house variety.

After a tough sleep we found the shower was broken. The hand held shower head only stayed on the wall at waist level. Couple that with a frigid bathroom it made the morning shower a shiver-fest.

The odd thing about the room was there were very few places to put anything away. No closets: The bathroom had no shelves and in the bedroom there were very few drawers. It was easy to find no hair dryer was provided, since there were no shelves to keep it.

We would have mentioned these issues to the office, but no one showed up the next morning. We didn’t bother using our roaming cell phone minutes to call the number tacked to the office door.

Although we had not yet purchased this hotel at the time of this review, I found it most helpful in determining what improvements we wanted to make to this property once we took title. None of the cabins or rooms had hair dryers which I thought was odd. We have added hair dryers to every room and cabin, changed all televisions sets to the large flat screens, changed linen companies, changed pillows, added a new lodge room with a continental breakfast now included with your stay, new water system with new plumbing, electrical upgrades, and within 30 days a new parking lot and signage. We have added new swings, horseshoe pit and are working on promoting outdoor movies soon. Our new lobby will be completed shortly with a custom front reception desk made of sinker logs from the bottom of Shaver Lake. Thank you for the helpful review and hopefully you will give us another chance someday.

We stay at the shaver lake village every year... it's nothing super fancy but it's a ncie cozy l;ittle place... close to EVERYTHING shopping, good eats, & of course the snow !! you can park and walk to almost everything! We love it, We are a family of 4 and have stayed in one of the cabins & also in the hotel.... it is a perfect fit for a small family.... we'll be up there this weekend for our annual snow trip!

Room Tip: The cabin is your best bet if styaing more than one night!

We stayed in the "Antelope Apartment" and there were Several! randomly placed doors to other areas/rooms of the facility. They all had a sign that read do not enter, employees only. It was odd and uncomfortable to stay in a place that had 100% access from the bedroom, backdoor area near restroom, and 2 front doors; all that did require a key, but there was no security latch like at most other hotels. The owner or any one that had access to the keys could easily come in at any time. The bedroom that had a door to the next room had a small latch but could easily be pushed opened and you could see light around the entire door frame and hear the tv/people on the other side. The beds were terrible! Squeaky and very uncomfortable! It was big though, enough to sleep 8. Definitely not a traditional hotel.

I agree with the guest on this review. The way I understand the history of this building, this particular suite was originally part of a retail building with many doors. When you enter the suite and walk around both downstairs and upstairs, you see several closed doors with signs. It was relatively confusing and a little intimidating. Since our purchase of the hotel, we have removed the excess doors and sheetrocked the openings to match the walls. We are in the process of changing the last remaining door from a hollow core to solid wood door with a latch to the next room. It is possible we can make this Antelope Apartment into a 3 bedroom suite eventually.

We booked the" Honey Moose Cabin" as it was our first anniversay,a bit of a splurge at $140 a night but I think good value especially if we had eaten in as the cute little kitchen would allow some basic cooking.Loved the huge comfy bed,spotlessly clean bright interior,tastefully jacuzzi tub.Would love to return in the snow and crank up the fire.

My wife and I lodged at the Shaver Lake Village Hotel and were extremely pleased with the room, service and Mike, the onsite manager, was helpful and a delight to deal with. He answered our questions and assisted us in our visit and a 'down to earth fella' as we say in The South. The room was spacious, comfortable king size bed, large leather chair with arms, 2 cowboy paintings, banner, lamp that was unique on a marble top end table, and spacious closent and large shower and bath. Beautiful tile on the bath floor. Wi-Fi with extremely good reception.

Room Tip: Reserve early
