Was at Liftline midweek, so it was quiet. Could see it being partish on weekends. Going back in a few days if that says anything. Good place to go with the guys, would not bring my wife and kids.

Cheap, close to lifts and town but seriously dated. Walls and floors are paper-thin so be prepared to be in on your neighbors' conversations and if you are an early-to-bed type, bring along your earplugs.
Clean, warm- what you'd expect of an old budget ski hotel.

Room Tip: No elevator, but if you stay on a lower floor you might fear someone's foot coming through your...

some of the mattresses here are terrible, but some are okay - bring a sleeping pad if you have space. close and convenient and cheap, and while halls look like a college dorm rooms are ok and generally clean. I have stayed twice, Lodge#3, upstairs was okay, Lodge#1 upstairs had a terrible mattress. Definitely better than driving in snow if you get a dump. Take earplugs, might be some rowdy folks, You can smell folks smoking pot as you walk the hallways, though ran across this in the Inn as well.....

Room Tip: ask where the new mattresses are, and probably upstairs is better. Lodge 3 was quiet, but was there...

Came with about 10 friends, all in our mid 20s for New Years and stayed for two nights. It was just what we needed - no frills, cheap, and clean. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel this is not your place, but if you are with a few friends (or a girlfriend/wife who not the complaining type...if those even exist) and simply need a cheap (or at least cheap relative to all other stratton accomodations), clean place to get some rest after a long day of skiing and long night of drinking, then this is the right place for you.

Many of the other reviews are not fair, those people who wrote them seem to have champagne tastes with beer in their pockets. The person I spoke to when booking the reservation was very honest about the type of place this was and I got exactly what I expected. There are nicer places on the mountain, but be prepared to spend more.

Overall, I will definitely be staying here again.

The Liftline has been around for ages and I've been staying at the place for the past 10 years. If you're a Paris Hilton, posh type go somewhere else. This place is a complete dive, is totally dated, but is the ideal place to stay if you're a true ski/snowboard junkie who just needs a hot shower and place to crash for the night after a long day on the mountain.

Sure, the place looks horrid. Imagine 40 years of skiers trudging though the halls will boots on, banging equipment off the walls, etc. I have no complaints about the cleanliness of the room. The bed linens were clean, as was the tub & shower. The TV is small, but any true ski bum should be so tired when they get in after a day on the mountain and at the bar that they don't even turn on the TV...just crash!

The Liftline will always be our go to place!

This place is pretty hilarious. As the awesome guy at Stratton said very honestly over the phone, "It's not gonna impress your girlfriend or your mom." If you're doing a quick trip with a friend/brother or someone who is really only interested in a cheap place to stay, you're golden. But this is not resort living. I went for a quick ski weekend with my brother and it was totally perfect for that because all we did at Liftline was sleep. The place is 40 years old and hasn't been updated...probably...well, ever. Our room had an odd smell. Not a bad smell, just an odd smell. Like something you couldn't quite identify, but had smelled sometime in your life before. There was also a hilarious rumble/vibration thing that would just start up in the middle of the night through the wall. It's all kind of comical, honestly, and after a few brews it doesn't really matter. It's clean enough and close enough to the mtn that it works. But no one, in the entire world, would call it nice. It's totally serviceable it you've got a sense of humor. Take your girlfriend or wife here for a romantic weekend only if you're looking to END the relationship.
