“Great location in Ellicottville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2011

We needed a one night stay during the always popular Fall Festival in Ellicottville, NY. We stayed at the Tamarack Club at Holiday Valley. The rooms were OK. The bed and pillows were not as comfortable as we find in top hotels. The bathroom ammenities were fair. However, if you are looking to ski and want the perfect location and a newer facility...this would be perfect.

We were on our way to the Pokonos but were turned back due to the flooding of Binghamton, New York. Was able to make reservation for both hotel and golf at the last minute. The staff was great, and the Studio Room beautiful. Our group will certainly return.

Loved it. Suited all of our needs very well. The pool complex was excellent with an indoor/ outdoor pool and access to the new, 3 pool complex at Holiday Valley. John Harvard's Brew Pub pizza was quite good. The other food was mediocre at best. The room was new and nicely appointed. Staff was friendly and eager to please. Would definitely return, if visiting the Ellicottville area again. Overall a great stay and excellent weekend.

My family stayed at the Tamarack Club in March 2011... we are a little late with the review (better late than never). The service team was very friendly. I have one specific experience that I hope many can relate to and appreciate. I lost my iPhone charger and went to the front desk for assistance. In short, they were very accommodating. Even though their primary backup was loaned to another traveler, they did not stop with the usual "we'll call you when it is returned by the other hotel guest." They were able to locate another one and trusted that I returned it as promised. This was done without prompting, without asking for the hotel management or any other escalation.

The room was very comfortable and offered a very nice view of the slopes. The ski storage room is conveniently located.

We look forward to annual treks to the Tamarack Club!

We rented out the Executive Suite at the Tamarack Club. If you have a large group - it is worth it. It has a king bed, a queen bed and 4 bunk beds. It also include a sleeper/couch for more people. The room itself had everything you could need - oven, fridge, freezer, dining room table, DVD player, washer/dryer, etc. It even included 4th AND 5th floor entry, which could be very convenient for entry if sharing with friends or multiple families. The 5th floor was bedrooms and bathrooms. The 4th floor was the living area with 1 bedroom.

The resort itself has tons to do. It includes a very challenging golf course. John Harvards is a good value - good beer and good food.

I can't wait to come back and try this place in the winter. It includes a ski check which is on the way from the free parking garage on ground level. The club is at the base of the mountain, so I could just imagine tossing my skis on and starting my day right away! It also included 2 hot tubs - which if they left open in the winter would be amazing as they are at the base of the mountain.

This was our first stay at Tamarack. We were very pleased with all the resort had to offer. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit for 5 nights. The rooms were clean, spacious and well equipped. The pools were awesome. John Harvard's brew pub had good service and great food. We did find fault with the size of the master bathroom's counter space. Also, the size of the indoor pool left us scratching our heads.
We truly did not feel like we were in Western New York as we sat by the pools with our drinks from the Cabana Bar. We travel to this part of the country every summer and usually stay in a neighboring town. Tamarack is our new place to stay!

While the Tamarack Club is new, it has such an odd feeling about it. The rooms are spacious but layed out strangely so I never felt comfortable. The bathroom is large but the counter/sink area is tiny - literally no place to put hair straightener, make-up, etc. Had to pile it on the toilet seat, yuk! There's enough floor space to dance in there, but no thought at all on using the space properly. I checked in and looked for somewhere to put my suitcase. Now with all the issues with bed bugs, etc the advice is to put your travel bag on a hard surface or folding luggage rack. Well, there wasn't any place like that - no counter, no rack. I called the front desk but they said "we don't provide luggage racks." I asked her suggestion on where to put my suitcase and the answer was " the couch." Oh well, odd like I said. The 'kitchen' is a small fridge, microwave and sink. It's OK but the fridge made such a loud, high-pitched noise that I actually unplugged it so I could sleep. Killed two bugs in the bathroom but I was on the ground floor and it was summer - no big deal. Overall, the place looks nice but lacks any kind of resort feel or service. Totally overpriced unless you're there to ski.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the pool or golf course or else you're overlooking an ugly parking lot.
