A bit out of the way, but great place

This place is awesome. It's definitely built like a ski lodge, but is perfectly cozy in the summer as well. The lobby has a free pool table, bar, and a giant wraparound fireplace with plenty of seating. There's also 3 different restaurants on site, all of which are delicious, and a mini-golf course. The roof was cozy, clean, and comfy. The bathroom was great, with a huge waterfall shower. I would definitely recommend this place.

Wish we could have stayed and enjoyed all the amenities but was just a place to sleep, shower, and get coffee before we took off again. But it was a great place to stay, highly recommend it.

Big, spacious, comfortable room.

We stayed in the fireplace king site. Bed was comfortable. Fireplace kept us nice and toasty. Bathroom was spacious with tub and stand in shower. The heated toilet seat was a welcomed bonus. the kitchen had everything you needed. Definitely recommended.

Providing your basics...

First off, the staff was amazing. I thought they were friendly and helpful, especially Kat, Jenny and Brooke. The hotel itself was just ok. No microwave or fitness area, even though it says they have a fitness area on their website. And of course, who couldn't use a microwave? The pool area could have used some extra lounge chairs and the hot tub/spa left a lot to be desired. Even though it was plenty big, the jets were practically non-existent and the temperature for a hot tub was lukewarm. The room was adequate, but nothing to write home about. The bathroom was large and nicely remodeled. As long as your expectations aren't too high, the hotel will be fine for you.

Very nicely decorated, great queen beds - comfortable. Nicely decorated, on the small side double queen rooms. Bathroom was beautiful and they did the best to use the limited space available. Great lobby for hanging out. Noise level in hallways and plumbing could be an issue with loud groups.

Perfect Fit

When reading the reviews of this hotel I was very nervous prior to my arrival. In short order my fears were removed. Great Location, walking distance from a couple of restaurants and a rite aid AND convenient, free shuttle access to the mountain. Pleasent staff who were helpful Clean, spacious room with an excellent bathroom (good water pressure and temperature). Lastly, beautiful lobby and working hot tub.
