I am shocked to see the past few reviews. We have been staying at the Northstar Lodge for years and it's always been outstanding. The units are great and provide all that a family would need. The location is outstanding - in the village, ski in-ski out, so convenient. The staff has always gone above and beyond to make sure our stay is good. David, the front desk manager, has always been helpful and available. Sadly with Covid many places are closed, but if you truly need something you can find it. This is a 5 star place. Book your stay and enjoy all they have to offer!

The carpet was dirty, dishes had dried-on food, TV didn’t work until i fixed it (after waiting 30 mins for someone to do it), loud neighbors, barking dogs. Kitchen sink was clogged, no bathroom cups (even cheap motels have those), no information book, no food available at all. The bed was terrible and we both did not sleep well. The beautiful location cannot make up for all of this. It tries to be a ski lodge but fails. For eg no ski racks in room. It fails both as a $350/night hotel or a ski lodge. In general there was an incredible lack of hospitality. On the plus side there was a free gondola to take you to the slopes for skiing.

Checking in last night was the worst, the treatment at the front desk was rude and disrespectful. Than they put in a handicapped room , with my 6.3 husband . The room smells . We called in advance to get a room. We got this? We go to the front desk to move us. They are out of rooms . We came here to ski. The manager Dave does not coming until 11:00a . The front desk can’t do anything for customer until manager Dave comes in. We are from San Diego , we go to 10 resorts per year . I never been in such a rude atmosphere . Paid all this money to be at the bottom of a handicapped room.

Northstar Resort cancelled our hotel reservation 6 days before ski week due to "overbooking". They did not offer to compensate us for any future stays. The only thing they offered was to let us have a $1700/night room which was ridiculous and way out of our budget. Due to their ineptitude, we had to cancel our entire trip. They took no responsibility for their mistake and in to make matters worse, they charged us IN FULL the day before they cancelling our room. I had to chase them down for the refund. They are a terrible and unreliable business that has no consideration for its customers. Do not book a room here.

I had reserved the hotel for 9 days in January of 2021. I wanted to leave one day early on a PACKED weekend. Welk resort refused to give me a refund for one last day. PLUS, they charged me extra $179 for miscellaneous expenses. I called them 5 times to get an explanation on what but they make it impossible for me to reach a live person. This hotel totally rips off the customers to the maximum allowed.
