I don't expect much in the way of ski accommodations. I'm happy if someone throws a blanket on their couch. I have even slept in my car in the parking lot at a mountain. I don't care. So what a shock I had when my kids and I walked into the lodge at Jackson Gore!
They took care of everything. We walked in, early in the morning, before check-in. I left the keys in the car and we put our boots on and got on the lift. When we returned that afternoon, our bags were waiting for us in our room. Our shoes were missing and had to be tracked down. And there was no microwave in the room so we had to heat our breakfast burritos on the coffee maker burner - Ski Bum Level 11. But otherwise, this was a real treat for us. And since we were slopeside, my kids got first chair on a powder day. They are now officially spoiled.
The best part of the room was the pillows. Well done!! Wish everyone had pillows that comfortable. Made the bed more comfortable. Room was typical mountain room, no frills, computer area was too small as was the tv. Remote was not working. The bathroom had some updates, but not enough.
The restaurant Buffett was not good. However, we are here for a trade show off season so I will give them a pass on that.
The bar staff was great.
The grounds were excellent, plenty to do.
