We stayed at the Pine Inn for a wedding August 17-19/2012. The nice thing about the room, was that it was clean. The balcony was nice as well, as we were facing the chairlift. We did'nt find the hotel loud at night, but during the day you could hear people in their rooms and doors slamming.
Now we knew that this was the cheapest place to stay on the resort. But for still paying almost $200, you don't get awhole bunch. You get 2 bars of soap and 1 little bottle of shampoo. There is no ice machine in the Pine Inn. If you want ice you have to take your ice bucket down to the bar and ask them to fill it. There are no fridges or microwaves in the rooms. We called down to the front desk because we needed to keep baby food cold, and reheat. The front desk said none were available but that there was a common room on the 3rd floor we could use. The tub stopper also did not fit in the drain, so we had to use a towel to plug the drain to bath our little one. No one came to clean our room while we where there. We had a weekend of stinky diapers in our room, which wasn't pleasent.
We could tollerate all that, but the 2 biggest things that made me angry was that there was a boil water advisery and we had to buy all of our water for our baby. We were told that if there was an advisory water would be provided. The other thing was that the couple was getting married on the mountain, so we had to take the chairlift. No where on the website or at the resort does it say that small children need to be straped into a snugli to use the chairlift. We had not brought one, nor was there one for us to use. We finally conviced the operators to let us take his carseat up. I have never been to a ski hill so I had to idea what to expect, but I think it would be nice if the resort told you what you needed.
Anyways, we both agreeded, had we been staying longer then a weekend we definatly would put us the money for better accomidations.
