I stayed at the Inn at Crestwood for a wedding in March. The Crestwood advertises itself as a top notch lodge, but I found it to be average. The setting is the most impressive thing about it. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and quiet. Nothing fancy, but certainly acceptable and I got a good night's sleep. However, I've had better continental breakfasts at chain hotels. This wouldn't have been a big deal, but the Crestwood charges a "resort fee" of $15, and when I asked about this, the staff told me that the fee covers upkeep of the spa facilities (which I didn't use), housekeeping, and the continental breakfast. When I pointed out that most hotels don't feel the need to charge an extra fee on top of the room fee for these items, I was told that the Crestwood has to do this because they are a small, family-owned business, not a chain. The fee is listed on their site, but if you're not looking for it, you likely won't find it and I wasn't informed of it when I called to make the reservation. In the interest of full disclosure, it is mentioned in the confirmation e-mail they send out once you've made your reservation but again, if that's not something you're expecting, you'll likely miss it completely. If it hadn't been for the $35 cancellation fee, which, if my confirmation e-mail was to be believed, I would have been charged no matter how much lead time I provided, I would have cancelled my reservation. As it was, I opted to stay elsewhere my first night in town and only stayed at the Crestwood so that I wouldn't have to drive after the wedding reception. In short, the room was fine, but nothing you couldn't find elsewhere, and the "complimentary" breakfast isn't truly complimentary if you're paying $15 for it. On the other hand, the views were spectacular, the staff was helpful, and the reception hall/restaurant was a very nice space for a wedding. If the food at the reception was any indication, I would think that the onsite restaurant is worth a visit. I wouldn't tell someone not to stay there but neither would I particularly recommend it. I didn't visit the spa/fitness facilities. Perhaps those would have tipped things in the Crestwood's favor for me. If you're not likely to use the lap pool and you'd rather not pay for things that other hotels/inns include in the room cost, look elsewhere.
