Restore staying experience
Check-in time was 5 p.m., and I got the room by 7.30 p.m. after calling reception 6 times because the room was not ready due to a shortage of housekeeping staff, and the front desk didn't have an ETA for the room. On the other hand, they also provided a coupon for two pizzas and non-alcoholic drinks for the competition. Room has insufficient light, no refrigerator and microwave. Around 8.10 a.m., the fire alarm went off, and we discovered some smoke near the next rooms. No one at the front desk informed us of this, despite the fact that the alarm had been lined for 10 minutes before we left the room. We were all waiting outside without any notification. We left the property because no one from the resort could assist us.

2/10 Poor

Crappy bed run down building. Needs some updating
The bed was terrible and worn out could feel the mattress springs. Room was really dark needed more lighting. Was dark dingy felt like I was staying at a no tell motel vs a ski resort.

10/10 Exceptional

My wife and I are well travelled, have a lot of experience sleeping from 1 star to 5 star . The good: super close to the ski chairs and main ticket office. The not so good: we had only one small night stand light by the bed for the whole room, good for romantic evening but not enough when you're looking for your things in the backpack. The parking lot has huge watery holes, we felt like driving in an all terrain track. Minus for Expedia: we got no message for the main check-in by the bridge, so we first drove to our inn then a good samaritan told us to go back to the bridge where the reception is.

6/10 Good

It was just fine. Really confusing on where to check in, and then where to park, and where your room was. The elevator was broken, so you had to carry your stuff from down in the parking lot, up the road to the hotel, then up to your room. The ice machine that was supposed to be there was gone.

Check in was at 5PM, our room was not ready for us until 7PM unfortunately. The hotel room was quite outdated, there were piles of sheets and bags of garbage in the hallway. We wanted to enjoy our stay but will probably not be back! Also the view is beautiful and the food was delicious, staff very kind and welcoming!

8/10 Very good

Customer service was really slow for TV that wasn't working upon arrival and plugged toilet. More staff and better service needed. It is not OK to use being understaffed as the reason for lack of response. We waited 15 hours for the TV issues to be rectified and 9 hours for a plunger to arrive. Window was also broken and was open the whole time we were there (good thing it was nice out and the room was not cold as a result). Having said that, you get what you pay for and overall we really enjoyed our experience on the hill. I am sure that with better service, my review would have been much better. Would stay again.
