Great location...that's about it....

Once we found the place it was what I expected. Older, definitely a ski in/out sorta place at the base of the mountain. Perfect location to access the village, gondola, mountain biking, etc... Check in was easy despite the front desk being high as a kite. A little funny but a little annoying as well. The room was older but clean. My main complaint was how thin the walls were and how noisy the place was. We were by the exit door and everytime the door would shut our door would vibrate. We could hear the annoying kids next to us because of the adjoining room. Super noisy. So be sure not to get one of these rooms. Overpriced IMHO, should be around 80-100 a night. never tried the cold breakfast.

Nice location, bad staff, run down

The front desk girl was beyond rude. Had attitude when we walked in. Basically made me sign then threw the card keys on the counter. We walked into our room and was unaware there was a large dog in the room next to us who was constantly barking. The cable was not working and apparently hasn't been working and the desk failed to let us know on checkin.

Good location but older hotel

The hotel is in a great location; slopeside near the gondola. The rooms are clean and everything worked as expected, but the hotel is on the older side. The only other complaint is that their WIFI was painfully slow.

Perfectly Adequate

The hotel is in a great location relative to the base of the mountain. It is walkable to a lot of activities and we had a great view of the base area from our room and small balcony. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. It isn't a luxury resort but it is an affordable alternative in a great location. The continental breakfast was heavy on sugary items and the coffee wasn't great. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Overall our experience was fine.

Great small lodge, cozy atmosphere.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Great little bar, nice small diningroom and lobby, all with fireplaces. Loved going out the door and skiing down to the gondola. Good jacuzzi and pool. Friendly and helpfull staff. Only drawback was that it is a bit noisy.(thin walls)
