Not bad accomodations, a bit overpricedPosted Oct 13, 2011
Scribner Hollow was a cute, clean lodge with a very nice restaurant and lounge. My daughters and I spent 2 nights there for a girl's weekend. We had plenty of room for the 4 of us and the beds were comfortable. The room smelled musty when we got there, almost like cat urine. We called the front desk and they said to put the AC on, which did help somewhat but we were wishing we'd brought febreeze... Otherwise, things were spotless and no problems with bedbugs or any other undesirables. We had trouble getting the knob on the bath tub faucet to stay up for a shower, and called down for someone to look at it - there was a maintenance person at the door within 10 minutes. We were treated very well by everyone, Kathleen at check-in and another kindly lady who gave us directions to Woodstock and the Mountain Top Arboretum. Wait staff in the Prospect Restaurant was attentive and the food very good. Over-all, the lodge was a bit over-priced for what you get; there are reviews that mention a meal being included in the prices of the stay which would have made this the perfect place. We would definitely go back if that were the case.

Not what we expected for the pricePosted Aug 2, 2011
We've stayed in all sort of places (hostels & off the road motels to 3&4 star hotels) and are by no means picky. But most of the time the price of the room and the quality of the room make sense. Not here though. The bed wasn't the most comfortable (the springs on the bed were very prominent). The indoor pool (or grotto as they call it) needed a cleaning/update - dirt on the walls/cracks and dirt in the hot tub. The outside pool was ok, but there were many bugs in it and no chairs. On the plus side, I loved the mountain view and the balcony off our room. The staff was also wonderful. Overall, our stay was nice but there are places in the area that we've stayed at that are much, much cheaper with more comfortable accommodations.

Not impressed. There are other accommodations not far away; and another one is just across the roadPosted May 31, 2011
Rather disappointed after arrival. The hotel looks much better in photos. It' is pretty worn-down. The door lock could not open from inside and neither from outside (too stiff); and finally staff from the Lodge has to come into our room from the balcony and to open it by force. the lodge looks old and worn down. Not enough lighting throughout the lodge and you can hardly get hold of a staff at the Reception Desk. Room is not large; but the bath room seems to be recently renovated and clean. Corridor is dimly lit that one can hardly see the room number. A tiny indoor swimming pool and a sauna room are provided; but does not seem to have been used by the hotel guests. The best of this hotel is the serenity in the environment and the outside scenery -- there's a huge lawn outside. Nice to sit in the balcony looking out at the mountain. You can sit at the balcony enjoying the mountain view if you don't mind the mat is old and looks dirty and that the screen of the patio door is on the verge of falling apart.

Last Choice in TownPosted Sep 21, 2010
I've stayed in hotels with rates between $50 and $650 per night, so I feel I can make a fair review. My husband and I booked a room on the Scribner Hollow, because it was the only hotel available in the area for the weekend. When we first walked into the lobby area, the decor was a Santa Fe style resort, and I got very exicted about it. The exictment lasted a couple of seconds. The fake plants, and their front desk in the basement ( yes, in the basement), was a turn down. Our room was small but confortable and clean. Our bedroom had awesome mountain views, that was the only thing that made the stay pleasant. They advertized as being a Luxury Boutique Hotel. Well, I didnt see the boutique or Luxury of it. Maybe it was all of that back in the 70's. The jacuzzi was nice. The crotto pool is pretty, but with cold water. The sauna was not working and I dont think it worked for a while. The restaurant was ok. TIP: go for the PUB menu, which have the same plates for half of the price. At the end of the day, this is an OK hotel, I would book again for a rate of less that 3 digits rate per night.
