Staff were very rude at reception . I had extended the trip 4 months earlier but they had no record of it nor did they make an effort to correct their mistake. Thankfully I had printed out the confirmation but what a hassle.

We liked that you had a hot tub open during the winter! and you fixed upon arriving giving us two beds instead of one as we wanted it. When we first arrived, you gave us one bed only.

Property didn’t read or respond to requests I submitted to book a king sized bed; they sent an email asking me to personalize my visit where I again requested a king sized bed, but no one ever read it. Luckily, there was a cancellation at checkin for a smaller room with a king bed, but the staff seemed disconnected from or inexperienced with how to respond to special requests. I’ve also called to ask if they can return a charger and cord I accidentally left in the room and they just transferred me to housekeeping vmail. I’m not confident I’ll get a response given my previous experience getting no response.

We really enjoyed our stay here, the studio apartment was well equipped and tastefully decorated with a gas fireplace. The sledding hill was great and although we didn't swim the pool looked nice.

Terrible experience at this property. Received a room that was dirty and not as advertised. This place is not a hotel but more of a 1950’s condo style time share property that is in need of major renovation. The buildings do not but appear to have been renovated since they were built and smell terrible. The room that I received had trash and empty wine bottles and coffee grounds in the waste bin. Bed was undone and it was obvious that someone had been in the room recently. Used shower towels were out m, etc- a complete mess. The offsite receptionist was able to have onsite staff help with me checking into another room at 2am which was greatly appreciated considering the circumstances. I could understand why this process took as long as it did. Unfortunately the alternate room appeared to be someone’s dirty time share since it was cluttered with old furniture, old/filthy rugs, and overall items that looked and smelled as if they were 30 yrs old. At that hour, I had no choice but to stay the night since I was traveling with my wife and baby boy. A motel 6 would have been 5-star experience compared to this unit. I would compare it to a 1/10 college dormitory at best and not a room in any condition to be offered on Expedia. Overall- this is was my worse experience to date with Expedia, hotel, or short term rental.
