My wife, grandson and I stayed at the Inn for three nights while skiing/boarding Asessippi. The hotel is your typical accomodation. Our room was quite large and had two TVs mounted on the wall (this was great for my grandson). The bathroom is a bit smaller with no fan which make for lots of condensation. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool/waterslide/hot tub was great for my grandson. The Asessippi package was excellent: three days of lift tickets for two adults ... three days of ski lessons ... and meal tickets. We took full advantage of these tickets which did save us a great deal of $$ in the long run. At the time we were there the hotel was crammed with school kids who were also doing the Asessippi resort. Although lots of kids were visible they were courteous, well-mannered and well-behaved. Asessippi has an excellent learn to ski/board program and I suspect that most of the kids stay at the Russell Inn. Contrary to what Jessica2192 stated, the restaurant was excellent - great service, one of the most extensive menus I have seen, and excellent food! The $5.00 vouchers are worth five dollars; so, use them and don't complain (again ... don't know where Jessica was coming from with her statement?). All-in-all, our trip was excellent. We got in some good skiing and my grandson learned how to board.
