Nice hotel, nothing extraordinary - too expensive!
Posted Jan 20, 2017
We had a nice stay, there was 3' of snow, the grounds were gorgeous, the staff was wonderful, but that is where it stops. I was expecting so much more - the prices for everything was high, for the rates I was expecting the hotel to have many more amenities, more restaurants, and shops. There was one shop, one restaurant, and a "Den" that was perpetually out of games that claimed to carry board games.
The spa was average to nice, but the prices implied it was superior. I expected oh so much more. The staff was professional and absolutely lovely, but the prices were out of line for the services offered.
Lastly, the swimming pool. There is one teenee tiny pool for the ENTIRE Suncadia Resort area (The Lodge, The Inn, The homeowners) and it is ridiculously small. When we went there was a wait list. The girl behind the counter told us that "but the wait list for you is small, there is only 1 family in front of you, but the slide area is maxed out and I don't know how long that will be full. It closes at 5, so I suspect that most people will be leaving then." Are you kidding me? The homeowners pay a ridiculously large sum to own there, there should be a pool or 3 for them, The Lodge is a hotel in and of itself, it too should have a pool. I think the Inn is a Condo, it too should have a pool. A wait list. Really? A wait list.
The ONLY reason I will never go back is the prices. They are so out of line with the service offered, I was just very disappointed.
