Our family had a great time at this hotel. This hotel is not a plush, high end establishment and it does not pretend to be. This hotel reflects the outdoor loving community that it is located in. You can visit beautiful local state parks, swim in the huge hotel pool, eat at some amazing local eateries and play games in...

We booked a standard queen room last minute as a stopover on a long drive. The first room we checked into was horrible...it looked like a dark basement apartment with cinder block, bad plaster, and ridiculously dated furnishings. We headed back to the front desk and asked if there were any rooms that were more updated and were told we...

I stayed at Wisp for a family wedding; I was horrified when the bedroom in the king suite I reserved didn't have a window in it. That's not a bedroom, it's a closet, and potentially dangerous in the event of a fire. The next 4 suites the staff showed me, also didn't have windows in the bedrooms. Finally, the staff...

Spent two nights here in October which is, I guess, their in between season. Right from the start I noticed they did not have automatic doors to the lobby/front desk area from the parking lot. Between the luggage and the baby stroller, managing the double set of doors to leave and come in was a hassle. The pool area looked...

I booked an expensive room which delivered on amenities and was quite clean. Staff were all courteous and professional. Nothing stands out as being excellent, but the basics were well done. I'll stay there again when in the area.

I contacted the Wisp resort to book a hotel room since a family wedding would be taking place there. I called in June to book the room for the September wedding. I specifically requested a handicap room. It didn't need to have a roll in shower. I just needed safety bars by the toilet and in the bath tub/shower. I...

Went to Deep Creek Lake at the last minute because Hermaline botched our beach vacation. It was a great alternative. We chose Wisp because they had availability, and chose a suite because we have three kids. Wisp has a lot of things on site, but they will burn a hole through your pocket (expected). You don't get a discount for...

This is basically an expensive Red Roof Inn but with lots of activities. The mattresses aren't the best. I found hairs on one of the comforters, and the light is not attached to the ceiling (see picture.) What WISP lacks, it makes up with views of the slopes and activities. In addition, Mark the bartender at DC's was the man....

We decided to take the fam on a quick (two-day) getaway in the summer after finding a great deal on certifikid.com. Here is my basic gist of the place: Mountain Activities: This was, by far, the best feature of the resort. We enjoyed the pass and participated in the ropes courses (child-friendly ones), mountain coaster, ski lift, and gem mining....

On checkin, I was asked to initial a document that said I would be responsible for any smoking related damage. I don't smoke. When I entered my room, it of course, stunk of old cigarette smoke, mixed with a whiff of mold coming off the shower curtains. Carpet, bed, bedding, furniture, sink, shower, all needed renovation. Wifi is free and...
