“Inexpensive, close to skiing. Old rooms, thin walls, dirty bathrooms”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is merely a case of you get what you pay for. It was a last minute decision for us to spend a night so that we could go skiing at Loon Mountain during school vacation week. This was available on short notice, and we had a friend staying, plus the $89 for the night fee was nice.

Located a short drive one exit up from Loon Mountain, the resort is right off a fairly main road. You drive right to the room and basically park just outside of it.

Inside the hallway, you walk to your room. The hallway was barely heated (in the middle of February), and the carpeting was old and smelled of mildew. The room was fairly spacious, but had a window that looked right into the hallway. With curtains on a broken rod, we had to hack a solution together to keep the curtains completely shut otherwise it would have been a free show for all.

Don't peek behind the bed or mattress because it's all dust and cobwebs. Walls were super thin as we could hear people upstairs from us most of the night. The bathroom was small and very old in severe need of updating to get it at least into the 90s in terms of fixtures and cleanliness.

Another attraction to the hotel was the indoor pool. While you didn't have to walk outside, the underground, unheated tunnel pretty felt like you were outside, which didn't help on the way back from the pool dripping wet.

The pool was pretty big and hot a decent hot tub. However, whoever thought it was a good idea to go wall-to-wall carpeting in an indoor pool area, was, well, wrong.

The people at the front desk were very nice and friendly. We had a maintenance man come to the room as the hair dryer was totally broken and he gave us a new one. Nice guy too.

Would I stay here again? Definitely not. Would I recommend it if someone were looking for a budget-friendly place close to Loon Mountain ski area? Perhaps, but I would arm them with the information above and let them make their own decision.

Room Tip: Get one on the second floor.

Normally I Love Woodward's but the last two times we've stayed it wasn't upto par! I always request room 78 because it's handicap accessable for my mom. When we arrived they told us we couldn't have that room because they didn't turn the heat on. They put us in another room, but had we been told before hand I would have brought the things my mom would need. This isn't the first time this has happened to us either. It was to say the least very difficult for my mom. I don't like the suites up the street either. They're dirty and need alot of updating. I would also like to say that when Woodwards was owned totally by Jeff Woodward we never had a problem that wasn't taken care of! The 90% owners seem not to care. I don't think we'll be going back again which is very sad because it always was our favorite getaway. We will now find a new getaway, but I don't think it will be in Lincoln. I wish Jeff and his wonderful wife owned it completely. They are wonderful people!!!

Room was a deluxe. Was ok but seemed to be somewhat dated. Very dark with knotty pine. Linens could use an update also. Jacuzzi was fun to have. Overall was ok for the price. The suites were up the road which was inconvenient if you needed something. To use the pool you had to go down to the main buildings by car so we never used it.

Two weeks skiing at Cannon and Loon were enhanced by the great experience I had at Woodwards. A really comfortable room to stay in and excellent food but my time was enhanced by the staff, who were on a level different to anything I have previously experienced. Friendly, polite and helpful, you just couldn't ask for more. There was plenty of food and it could all be wahed down by a drink in the bar, which had a great log fire to keep you warm. What a great time I had!

I brought a group of 35 secondary school students to Woodward's along with six other teachers and we had a fantastic experience. The staff were very friendly and accomodating, the facilities were perfect for the group, and the meals were excellent. The location was ideal for our skiing and other activities, the rooms were very clean and comfortable and we experienced real friendliness and warmth from all the staff which made our trip thoroughly enjoyable.
