Wonderul.

The room was very nice. The staff was inexperienced and didn't know where restaurants and retail stores were. The signage throughout the property was either non-existent or confusing. The brochure in the room referred to restaurants that were no longer there. The employees would say "oh yeah, the restaurant is on "one". Okay, the bldg has floor one, L1, and L2. Which floor do you think they are referring to? Turns out it was a totally different bldg. Duh.I was not impressed.

I was quite surprised when housekeeping entered my room at 8 am. Very busy place. It was nice that they have three hot tubs at the main pool. Beautiful views and crisp mountain air.

The valet/bell staff and guy at check in were extremely rude and unprofessional.

Loud, obnoxious guests. Non of our 3 rooms got sleep because of noise.

The setting is spectacular. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful. Not one hiccup the whole time I was there. The spa is great with the outdoor pool and hot tub. My room was very nice with a 40 inch flat screen TV with all great channels HBO, History Channel, CNN ect. It's satellite TV. Really great place people were so nice and it wasn't like they were forced to be nice they just were. Very special place. The food everywhere was excellent and pricing reasonable (just my opinion). I ate at the Steak Pit what a treat. Oh almost forgot so much snow it just kept coming down. March is a big snow month so be aware if you go in March you will see a ton of snow.

We spent our thanksgiving here for skiing. Fun trip and great service!

The hotel was undergoing renovation so it probably did not look its best. Everything was well run, professional, and staff were friendly and kind. I (and my friends) found the decor strange--brutalism meets Japon meets the West. It's not charming compared to places like Sundance, but it is extremely comfortable and clean. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. I imagine very nice for families.

The Cliff Lodge is as close as you can get to OktoberFest! Enjoy the festivals during the day, then relax in the hot tub in the evening.

Our favorite staycation location every summer. No kiddos allowed in the roof top pool :) plus the views are AMAZING

Cliff Lodge always delivers. Best chance to get great snow late in the season, ski-in/out location, variety of restaurants roof-top pool and spa and beautiful Alta only two miles up the road. Bell service shuttle is always available upon request to go to Alta or to nearby off the mountain restaurant.

You can't beat the location! Ski in and ski out. Staff was extremely friendly. The hotel itself is a bit dated in terms of decor and amenities from a room and facility standpoint. You can rent skis and buy lift tickets within the property and the onsite ski lockers are very convenient. While the restaurants are nice, you will run out of variety if you are staying for more than 3 nights.

This is definitely a hotel for the locals. Rooms were good. Beds were cozy. Hotel needs some updating though. Wonderful to be right on the mountain. View are great from the room. Staff is very courteous and willing to make your stay comfortable. Don't expect any "fancies". Come here to get a decent room, get some good skiing in, and eat a good meal. Expect to pay the price of on the mountain accommodations though.

Hotel is walking distance to Oktober Fest and Snowbird activities. Kids had a blast and so did Patents!!

The hotel was comfortable. The setting was beautiful and we loved the hiking both right from the hotel and in neighboring Alta.

Had a good time. Pool was nice. AC didn't work but they quickly moved us to another room. Wish we had access to the pool for the whole day after check out.

This resort was very good and the time of the season great to get good access to the lifts. This late meant that a few of the restaurants weren't open. The Spa was great but expensive. Over $200 for a massage is getting up there, particularly when you are asked to tip prior the treatment being given!

great location. We skied and had a great time here. The hot tub and outdoor pool made the day complete after skiing all day.

We love snowbird because of the easy access to chickadee especially with little kids. We love the sushi bar, it is always a bonus for us as our kids are old enough to watch a movie and get a pizza while we have a date upstairs at the sushi bar. Snowbird snowboarding is the best, we have never been disappointed! It is worth the extra money to stay if you have young kids because they can learn right outside the doors. the outdoor pool and hot tubs are a blast too!
