We got this as part of a package deal with Crystal Ski that was pretty cheap. We go to ski resorts to go boarding, not to sit about in the hotel all day, and as long as it's clean and people are polite, I'm quite happy with budget accommodation, which is what this is. If you've paid top dollar and are expecting the Ritz this isn't it. It's at the top end of budget accommodation, that said: the staff are really nice, the pub does good enough beer and food to want to stay in more than once, I wanted to bring the breakfast staff home with me they made me laugh that much, and it comes with some of the things you don't expect with budget accommodation (satellite TV / swimming pool / hot tubs / large rooms / smellies in the bathroom). Yes reception smells a bit of chlorine
My advice would be to make sure you're booked into one of the rooms in the main part of the hotel before you travel (we had two double beds in ours - one for us and one for the boards!), eat in the bar not the restaurant, and let's all just relax a little and not be so hard on these guys! Oh, and don't bother going into Frazer on the bus for a night out, unless you're desperate to see Safeways and KFC (that's really all there is there).
If you want to come to winter park and stay in a posh hotel, go to the Zephyr, or one of the others right at the bottom of the lift. If you don't want to pay a fortune and don't mind not having your shoes shined for free every day, then the Mountain Lodge really is fine.
