2/10 Poor

Down the drain…
Really wanted to love it here. But when we got to our room the toilet was backed up, it has to be a septic issues. I called down to the front desk twice the first night and once that morning we left and they said they could send someone up in a bit. We literally had to had to use the toilet on the next level down. Also there were crumbs in the pull down bed and food chunks on the table. We came for the water park, before making the drive I called to make sure everything was open. After we get to the room we head over, outdoor pool and water slides are closed but we still have to pay full price to get in? If they aren’t going to offer everything other than the wave pool, then cut the price. Really disappointed after $300 for one at the hotel and another $100 to sit in a pool that should be free!

We make it a regular destination for us each winter. We also come to ski occasionally, and we always have a nice experience. Staff at desk were very friendly and helpful. Dinner at Carvers was terrific. Room was large, warm, and comfortable. Lobby area is comfortable and inviting to all. Thank you for a fun time !

6/10 Good

Staff and checking in were top notch. The mattresses, pillows, and towels need to be replaced in the rooms and the hallway carpet also. Cozy room with noce fireplace and walking distance to skiing.

Overall a great stay, no balcony
Very clean and spacious rooms with separate bedrooms. Perfect for families. On site hiking trails, a beach with swimming, and restaurant. Starbucks coffee shop also in the lobby. Did not use the indoor waterpark this stay. Only negative is that one of the appeals of the rooms is a balcony which apparently were all closed for repairs (although no repairs were being done on any of them).
