Nice stay for skiing weekend
It was what we expected and worked well for us!

This is a pretty basic economy lodge for people who want to enjoy their time in SLT without spending a lot of money on their room. Conplimentary breakfast from 7-10 in the lobby was great. Rooms were average, but heated up REALLY quickly which was nice in the SLT winter. All and all would stay here again.

Powder Day Fail
In Tahoe for a powder day. Got 2 feet at lake level and 3+ feet on the mountain, up early ready to head out before 8 am - should have been epic right? But the hotel didn't have a plow for the lot - their plow's battery was dead. So we're stuck shoveling our way out of their lot, like a 150' long lot. So by the time we got out at 10 am, all the parking lots at heavenly were full. Ended up waiting until 12:15 for the gondola to start running, and salvaged the afternoon. Powder days are precious, and becoming more precious in the last few years. Shame to lose out because the hotel doesn't have a reliable plow service. First time that I've ever lost out because the hotel couldn't plow their lot. Otherwise the room was acceptable. Good location, close to restaurants.

Renting this room is criminal
For an old, budget property, the room was actually pretty nice. The bed was comfy, bedding was very nice, and overall, it was clean. However, there was a TERRIBLE STENCH in the room, that I traced to the carpet. If I had my nose within 2-3 feet of the carpet, the odor was awful. I think its criminal to continue to rent this room out for $100+ per night, when you could just replace the carpet for a couple hundred bucks, and the room would be serviceable for the next couple years.

Room was small. Very friendly staff. Okay for one night stay, but could use a few more amenities. Good location.
