Nice staff and fresh squeezed orange juice
The hotel is very similar to many of the hotels up there - big, comfortable room in an older building but perfect for after a full day snowboarding, EXCEPT for a couple of things - the guys who work the front desk are incredibly nice and the orange juice served at breakfast is fresh squeezed. The hotel could use more parking but it worked out.

Hotel Needs Attention, but Location Convenient
This hotel is very tired looking, and at $150/nt, was overpriced. First thing we noticed; their advertised pictures look nothing like the rooms. Carpets need replacing on the outside walkways, as well as in the rooms (we didn't take our shoes off). In room furnishings were beat up and tired, with peeling lacquer. Room was also dirty, and grungy looking; mirror in main room was smudged up and cloudy, carpets were dirty, bathroom needed a scrubbing. The extremely small shower was not clean. The rooms are non-smoking, but pretty much everywhere else on the property smoking is allowed. Guests next door and below us spent most of the evening out on the walkways smoking, so the room smelled like smoke, probably from continuously sucking all the cigarette smoke through the heater vents. This all added insult to injury. The check-in staff was probably the rudest we have experienced. The guy managing the office was dealing with a packed parking lot and shuffling cars, and was visibly flustered. When there was no more spaces, except for one that would maybe fit a golf cart, he flippantly told us there was a large lot up the road and shuffled off. We understand there was lots of snow and therefore less parking, but when you are the face of a company, try to smile. This was before we even checked-in. He spent the rest of check-in mumbling under his breath, and showing his pure disdain for the job. Paying $155 to stay here was a rip-off, even during high season.

you get what you pay for - it's a dumpy room, but I chose it because of the location and price- one can walk to Heavenly ski resort gondola. A good value in a ski town
