Room is clean and quiet. Staff in Front desk is friendly and helpful. Hot breakfast was good. Would stay again if in the region.

This is your average hotel that you must pay a premium for since it is centrally located in a resort town.
Positives
-free decent breakfast buffet (eggs, potatoes, bacon, cereal, etc.) that was not overcrowded
-covered parking
-room was spacious with a decent bathroom

Negatives
-Perhaps it was just our bad luck, but we could hear EVERYTHING going on next door. All night, we could hear toilets flushing and water running.
-We arrived about an hour early hoping to check in to give my infant daughter a decent place to nap after a long time in the car, but they refused to let us check in. We had to drive around town. When
we returned, I had to wait about 15 minutes to check in because of the slow service.
-We had a kitchenette in our room, but the burners were very slow, and the fridge was running all night. We regretted paying extra for such a small slither of space to cook.
-The windows have no screens, so it was alittle scary trying to air out the room on the third floor.


Overall, I do not think I would stay here again

Stayed there for one night en route to Yosemite.
Everything you would expect from a Best Western Plue hotel.
Exception front desk staff! Very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was adequate.
Kids loved the heated pool!

We stayed for 2 nights to go skiing with 2 teenaged boys. The room was large and had 1 king and 2 bunkbeds separated by a wall. Also had a fridge and microwave in the room - handy for feeding starving kids who have skiied all day and need a quick pre-dinner bite. Room was clean, beds comfy and staff was very helpful.

Breakfast included in room and a step up from the standard. They make fresh pancakes for you in the morning.

About a 5 minute walk to public ski shuttle. Can get Black Tie Rentals to deliver skis to you and they will pick up from hotel. You don't even need to be there for pick up - just call and let them know you have left equipment.

read all the reviews and decided to stay at BWHS mid-week end of the ski season.
super convenient location --- walk to all in town.
check in was super slow. three people behind the desk and no one helped me until the owner prodded them into action. nice to have two carts at the desk so you can easily roll your stuff to your room. hotel nicely decked out. updated and while not "modern", nothing lacking. pool, exercise room and all amenities clearly marked. covered parking definitely a plus IF the weather is bad -- you won't have to dig out your car, just drive over a berm of snow.

free "hot" breakfast was kind of cold. bummer. free fruit, yogurt and cereal were nice.

the room was down a nicely carpeted freshly painted hall. and i was quite pleasantly surprised when i entered. spacious, clean, nice big flat screen. all good.

slept terrifically the first night on the great mattress.

on the second night the person in the adjoining room decided to watch tv at 1130pm. so i listened while he watched. earplugs solved that problem. but bummer to have to wear earplugs.

every one has commented on the internet access. i received three different sets of contradicting instructions on how to log onto their "high speed" internet. high speed it most definitely is not. SLOW. would never be able to download a movie.

a decent place. would rather stay in a condo during the winter.

Room Tip: ask for a top floor room.

We stayed for about a week. Overall a typical stay for these types of hotels. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Pool was heated and clean. Spa was hot and adequate. Small buffet breakfast was generally good. Computers were available for internet access. Our room needed some repairs.

Some tips:

1) Get a town map. There are a number of restaurants and shops within walking distance.

2) The TV remote was difficult to use. Unless you were very close to the TV it was difficult to change channels. This was shared by several others in our group.

3) The hotel restaurant Cafe 203 offers a good deal for Indian food.
