Positive Reviews

Perfect location for business trips or vacation

Numerous guests say that the price and location make this destination an excellent choice for any occasion. The rooms newly renovated and the proximity to area attractions cannot be beat.

Whimsical décor with an Alpine feel

Guests looking for a room that borders on a themed-stay agree that this is a great choice. The décor is bright and cheerful, yet has a cozy, warm and inviting feel that many guests say make it seem as though the accommodations are situated in the Swiss Alps.

Ideal destination for skiers

Many guests come often since the property is so close to Kirkwood ski area. Heaters in the rooms make it easy for guests to dry out gloves, socks and other cold weather accessories.

Negative Reviews

Front desk can be hit or miss

Although the rooms are beautiful and newly renovated, the front desk could be better trained. While staff members try to work with the credit card machine and computer system that often malfunctions, they remain cordial to guests.

The walls are a bit thin

Some guests comment that the walls of the guest rooms border on being paper thin, with many reporting hearing guests coming and going throughout the evening hours. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and good for a night of rest if conditions are quiet. If a room change is necessary, the front desk is helpful and accommodating if occupancy allows. Many guests suggest earplugs, just in case room changes can't be made.

Breakfast would be nice

Guests note that there is not much available in terms of a continental breakfast, except for an occasional box of donuts and free coffee. Guests can take advantage of nearby coffee shops and restaurants, however.
