My mom, my husband, and I spent a night at the new Hotel Jay on Labor Day weekend. We got a good deal due to participating in the Jay Peak Trail Running Festival. Two hundred bucks and we got waterpark access both Friday and Saturday (only stayed Friday night) for the three of us, plus free tram rides. The room was beautiful. Full size kitchen - we didn't need it - but it was a nice bonus. Living room had a Murphy bed and a pull-out sofa, a balcony that you could actually sit on (ever rented a room that has a balcony you can barely step out on?!), a fireplace, and wall-mounted flat screen TV. Separate bedroom had a king size bed and balcony. A small changing room to keep your ski gear out of the way, or put your luggage in. Large bathroom.
Unfortunately, we didn't realize the waterpark closed at 8pm. We showed up at 7:50, after a great all-you-can-eat BBQ at Alice's Restaurant (only in summer, only $20, includes sunset tram ride!). We were disappointed to get one quick spin around the lazy river before we had to get out of the water.
An annoying part of the room - the lights! Couldn't figure out what switch went to what light. If this one is on, then that one won't come on, but if this one is off, then the other will. Very confusing. The bathroom fan is not powerful enough. Despite the doors in the room (bathroom, bedroom) being solid wood, they do not block out noise from the next room at all.
What was extremely frustrating for us was the check-out. We were participating in the Jay Peak Trail Running Festival Saturday morning. 3 back-to-back 5Ks. 8:30, 9:30, & 10:30. Checkout was at 11:00. They were sold out for Saturday night and would only extend checkout 'til 11:30. We had our bags packed and ready early that morning, but we really just wanted to take a nice, hot (private) shower in the room, not in the waterpark locker room!!! They would not budge and said it would be $100 if we stayed past 11:30. We only needed the room until noon. 11:30 did us no good - we would've finished our runs, got our shirts, and had to sprint up to the room with moments to spare to get out by 11:30. Instead showered in the waterpark locker room, had to bring soap and shampoo from the hotel room. I understand they had a lot of rooms to clean for incoming guests, but surely not everyone was asking for a late check-out. They couldn't see past 11:30 (and we asked three different people at the desk at different times). This was a major disappointment.
