Panther Mountain Inn

Reviewed March 25, 2013

We drove 2 1/2 hours from Highland NY to Chestertown NY. We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay as we were having dinner at our friends restaurant (The Bullhouse)....I booked 4 rooms because there were 4 couples......our room was great...nice fresh towels.....plenty of room....Jamie could not have been sweeter......the pub downstairs was a gem.......both bartenders were very friendly.....there was a pool table and shuffleboard which we took advantage of.....cocktails reasonably price and pub fare was good....had the fried mushrooms with horseradish mayo.....you can't find a nicer place to stay for the price.......

We have been travelling and staying in motels/hotels of all sorts as a family for the past 10 years. This was the very worst experience we have had.

We called the Panther Mountain Inn on Dec 24 and spoke to a lady called Jamie, requesting a 5 day/night ski and stay package. She quoted us a rate of $763.88 for the 5 days. This was a very good rate, so I asked her to confirm it and break down the room+tickets for me. She did and re-confirmed the rate. I told her I would finalize plans and call her back. The next day, I called back and confirmed we wanted to take the room. I asked Jamie to re-confirm the price, and she did. $763.88.

We drove up to Chestertown from our home on Dec 27. When we arrived at the Inn, we were met by a lady, who told us the price we had been quoted was wrong. And instead, the price would be $1245. We were astonished since this was >60% above what we had repeatedly confirmed with Jamie. We asked to speak to Jamie, but were told she wasn't around and that she was a "new employee" who "clearly made a mistake".

We explained that we had made the booking on the basis of Jamie's repeatedly confirmed prices. The lady (who was apparently the owner) and her husband curtly responded that they "were not going to take responsibility for Jamie's mistake". They then claimed that Jamie had called us earlier in the day to notify us of the error. Whether she had in fact done this or not is irrelevant since we had already left early in the morning.

We asked why 2 full days had passed without Jamie's error being identified and our being notified. We would still have had a chance to make alternative arrangements. The husband replied rudely and confrontationally that it was not his problem and his decision was fine.

We asked to see the room before making a final decision. This was our second shock. The room was very small and extremely old with ragged furniture and a bathroom that barely one person could fit into. The room wouldn't have been worth the original $763 that Jamie had quoted us!

Unable to believe what was happening, we started calling around for other hotels. Fortunately, we found a very nice Clarion Inn just 20 minutes away which offered us a very modern, clean room with a great breakfast for $1221.

We want everyone to know what sort of a place the Panther Mountain Inn and its owners are. Our advice is "stay here at your peril".

Room Tip: Find another hotel! There are plenty listed on the internet.

I was looking for an inexpensive place to stay and this fit the bill. This is an old style hotel / lodge. Small but nice room, parking, and an innkeeper who was available for a late night check-in. More than met my needs. Nice bar. Close to the Northway.

If all you want is a couple of decent beds, a cable TV and a bathroom, you will be OK. However, this place is an old, musty, dusty, beaten up inn. There is a pub in the basement and the cooking scents permeate the entire building structure. We checked in on St, Patrick's evening, and were greeted with the smell of boiled cabbage which was quite overpowering. Also, the drunks that frequent the pub on weekends spill out onto the sidewalks around midnight just in time to ruin your restful sleep. When the cooking smells wear off, there are other unrecognizable odors to contend with.
ps-The small fridge provided, a nice touch, is housed in the bathroom!!! Better to try another place, especially if you have a sensitive sense of smell.

The inn's owners are new and they seem to really take a liking to cleanliness. The place was spotless. The owners are friendly, but not overbearing, and they were very accommodating. The price is right. It is in the middle of a small town and there is a restaurant/bar attached to the inn, but it was quiet and very comfortable. The town is fun to walk around and there are a couple of decent restaurants. This is just a nice, basic, cozy place to stay.
