The Inn at Solitude

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was awesome to walk right out the door and be on a mountain trail, including a small pond to the right. If we came in the winter, we would have been right on the slopes. It was awesome- the wildlife, the views, and the experience of sitting in the hot tub, looking up at the beautiful mountainside, with the cool air hitting my face, contrasted with the warmth of the water. I don't think the rooms have A/C, but we didn't miss it for long after opening the door to the balcony. We came here for our anniversary, and it was truly memorable!

We stayed at the Inn at Solitude while our family members rented condos inside the complex. This resort is truly special- smaller, low key, and everyone was so helpful! Skiing was amazing, no lift lines at all, great eating options on site. Rental shop guys and gals were super helpful and took their time to answer our questions and make sure all of our gear fit right. We also rented snow shoes one day and had an amazing hike from the Nordic center back to the resort. We had a slope side view room at the Inn- worth it for that view and it was nice to sit on the patio. Only reason I wouldn't give it five stars was that the rooms could be a bit cleaner. I do think they were short handed or had some illness/call ins when we arrived which may have impacted that but certainly not the worst, by any means. A really great family resort- was a great trip for all!!

The inn is connected to the ski lifts and across from the ski rental shop. So very convenient. And the views of the snow covered mountains are terrific. But the rooms are nothing special. Dark and drabby. Thin walls. Low water pressure and you 'compete' for hot water at times.

This place has a small neighborhood feel, great skiing and decent restaurants. My only complaint was the small pizza place was completely unprepared to serve morning coffee and make breakfast sandwiches. Workers need to be trained wearing gloves and changing gloves when handling money. This morning I ordered a coffee and egg sandwich which the coffee was cold the worker offered to reheat but is unacceptable also the egg sandwich was made with premade scrambled eggs which was also cold I think most people would prefer fresh made eggs. But overall a great spot to visit.

We should have known it would be bad when the reservation we made was not honored. We arrived later in the evening since our plane was delayed. We had reserved a King bed large room, and were offered a 2 queen bed room. Both my husband and I complained- not raising our voices, but just like civilized people--and kept saying that the failure to honor the reservation was not acceptable. One of the guys behind the desk didn't like that we wouldn't take "no" for an answer, and he actually threw a chair. Not at us, but in anger. And then stormed out. I don't think I have seen a display of childish temper like this in an adult in many years. A manager then came and was able to somehow work us into a room in another building. She was very nice, as was the sole waitress at the restaurant who very kindly served us hot dogs just before the place closed at 10 pm (no room service anywhere in this complex- and the "store" that sold frozen food items had run out of food except for things like chips, and also was closing at 10 pm) The rooms were ok, nothing to write home about- basically dark and plain. Not particularly comfortable, old bed. Although most of the working folks seemed nice, you couldn't pay me to stay there again. I would have given this review a terrible except for the fact that the manager and the waitress at the restaurant were extremely nice and kind.

The location is great, and the views are awesome. They also have a nice spa. That's about it for the good news. As far as being a hotel, it's pretty mediocre. The walls between rooms are paper thin; every morning I could hear the conversations the family in the next room was having. The restaurant serves bad quality, overpriced food (to be fair, I only ate their once, because I paid $18 per head for a breakfast buffet that was just awful). I should caveat that by saying all the food in Solitude is overpriced. It seems they know your only alternative is to leave the canyon every time you want to eat--which is exactly what we did after the first day. The hot tub worked for one night, which was great, but we stayed 5 nights. The valet parking--which you would think would be a perk--was annoying in that the valet brought your car to a spot about 50 yards from the front door. I loved the trip--Solitude is a great place with great skiing. But the Inn at Solitude was not worth staying at.

There's not only lots to do here (e.g., hiking, mountain biking,), but staying at the hotel showed what excellent customer service is all about. The front desk people were very helpful with ideas about what to do, where to go and sightseeing. Nothing was too much for them. The hotel also offers complimentary valet parking-very much appreciated!

Quiet place, great for hiking. Shopping is very limited. Gym is good. It seems to be ideal for small conventions. Solitude is about 40 minutes from Salt Lake City. The food in the hotel was great. There are more activities in the winter.

I read reviews on this place so I gave it a try. It was wonderful, quiet, beautiful views and large room. We ate at the restaurant next door, the Honetcomb Grill , and it was delicious. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We were here in the off season I'm sure during the ski season it isn't as peaceful.

Ok... it was the end of the season, but the stay was disappointing. We got in late, due to flight delay, and was very hard to find. People on phone were not overly helpful. Luckily we asked if there was any late dining as there is nothing open after 9:00 so at least we knew to stop in Salt Lake first. The next morning, no coffee! They had a decent breakfast buffet, but everything was ice cold (clearly was put out at 6:30 or whenever they open and not refreshed). Got there at 9:30, closes at 10:00 and were informed that you can pick at whatever is left but we are not putting anything else out. Tried to get a soda but every vending machine was either broken or empty. Luckily they have a very small convenience store in the village. Same thing the next day. We actually just sucked up losing our money and left early and stayed down in Salt Lake City and just drove up to ski. Which was a good thing as apparently talking to someone else, the day after they just didn't have any breakfast at all. The location is great, right in the village, close to the lifts. Maybe there are more on their game during the high season, but it seemed like a bunch of younger adults in charge and very few of them cared much.
