This place is like a run-down mountain shack with incomplete, thoughtless remodeling. We only stayed here for the convenient location. It has the best location right next to the Main Lodge and makes getting the kids on the slopes in the morning very easy.
The facilities were clean, tolerable, but very mixed. The 1 bedrm condo in the west building had granite countertops in the bath and kitchen, but the bath tub was old and worn. The bathtub faucet, shower couldn't maintain a steady water temperature and alternately scalded or froze us.
The bed was comfortable, but the poorly placed nightstand blocked access to the bedrm closet, rendering the closet unusable. There was a constant, loud rumbling at night which prevented any peace, quiet.
The restaurants had competently prepared but oversalted, expensive food. If you wanted bread, you could pay $3- for a tiny loaf which barely feeds a child. We were there over Jan 2013 MLK weekend. The restaurant had customers but was not packed. The servers were friendly but forgetful and inattentive. We had to hunt someone down to get anything done, from ordering to getting the check. We spilled a glass of water on the table and were handed a wad of paper napkins and a dirty towel to clean it up ourselves. We never saw a busboy in the restaurant or bar. The restaurant, bar are clearly understaffed, and the waitstaff spends more time flirting,chatting than attending to the customers.
We had very mixed feelings about staying here. We could probably tolerate staying here if we never ate at the restaurants, bars and cooked our own meals ; if we brought earplugs to use at night; if we wore our ski jackets in the shower (to minimize the alternating scalding, freezing water temp); if we had very young kids or disabled skiers in our party.
