This lodge is truly rustic. We have stayed in several historic hotels and know to expect gliches. This lodge however could use a bit revamping. The walls are very thin, the floors very creaky, furnishings "tired" and the worst, was looking forward to a hot bath after a day of skiing and see that the water coming out of the...

Beautiful location, fantastic outdoors experience, and the staff is awesome. This is a great place for a wedding (or skiing) but not of a luxury experience. The rooms are old and walls thin. Rustic is the word. I would happily go back for either summer or winter.

With only 2 days to ski, we wanted convenience (exactly 1 1/2 hours from Sacramento where we were visiting), personal attention, minimal crowds, and comfortable accommodations. The Inn exceeded our expectations. First, Sugar Bowl's large lodge is Mt. Judah Lodge on another part of the face of the mountain. Ski lessons are probably best taken at that lodge. The Inn...

Stayed here for a handful of nights over the past couple of years. It certainly has a rustic charm to it, by which I mean it is older and quirky. The heat in the rooms is difficult to regulate, especially if you're in one of the family suites with a separate room with a bunk bed for the kids (the...

We've been to the Inn 3 times in two years, always mid-week the room rate half that of the weekend. Very pleased each time. Great friendly service by all staff, starting from the greeting at the parking structure entrance. A lot of them clearly love their jobs, and I recognize some of them from year to year. One fellow at...

We have been here for 1 night and were positively surprised. The staff is very helpful and nice. The room was clean and pleasant. Well equipped. Recently renovated. Very comfortable bathroom. Being 10 feet from the lifts is a huge comfort and will upgrade your vacation. This is absolutely unbeatable advantage. We were here in midweek, so prices were 50%...

We just spent a weekend at the Inn at Sugar Bowl and loved it. We had wanted to do it for years and finally managed to get to the Inn. You arrive by Gondola any time of day or night - the amazing staff takes all your stuff and gets it to your room from the beginning of the gondola...

I stayed here two nights midweek in March 2011, when rooms were half price ($79/night). My room was a northern twin. Overall, I enjoyed the hotel and would stay here again at that price, though not for more than a couple of nights, as the dining options aren’t good. First, what I liked. My room was cozy and clean and...

I can't believe what a value this place was. We stayed in the deluxe suite room 300 this weekend for $199 a night. I would have never thought I would say thats a deal, but the hotel is on the mountain. I know there are several resorts with accommodations at the base of the lifts like Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, etc;...

The Inn at SugarBowl is right there on the mountain. You park you car in the covered garage and take a gondola to the lodge. The Lodge is only a few steps away from the gondola, which makes it very convenient. I got a room with a private bath, lift tickets and breakfast as the package. The restaurant in the...
