We stayed a few days for a midweek ski break. This hotel is right at the base of the slopes and our suite had a slope view, seperate bedroom and a murphy bed in the small living room area and 1 bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. You are given a ski locker on the...

This is the 2nd year we've stayed there for a conference we stayed in the "nicest" suite level available but after we got there we found the room having cosmetic issues and the suite hospitality lounge closed. Hotel hasn't see common area updates in years and almost nonexistent food and beverage on site in off season.

The hotel is nice enough, and ski in, ski out is definitely great and very convenient. That said, I think the hotel is relying on that convenience to draw visitors rather than making sure service is up to par. To start with, the rooms are small, old, and outdated. The layout of the lodge and its connection to the ski...

We recently stayed the mid-week after Presidents Day weekend. They are apparently under new ownership and seem to have added to their off-season activities (rope course, etc). Surprisingly (and happily!) it was cheaper to stay there, with more amenities, than to stay at Liberty, even with our Advantage Card. They have added a ramen noodle and burrito bar, and soy...

While the skiing and ski instructors were good, the accommodations and food need a boost. Lots of choices in the buffet area of the lodge, but not very tasty. Fast food at best. Lodging spacious in general areas but bathrooms are cramped, why?? And why the murphy bed? Overall, a nice time had but we'll seek out another, more current,...

I took advantage of the unusually cold, snowy weather in the east to try one of Maryland's ski resorts -- Wisp. It was an easy, pleasant three-hour drive to the site and within an hour, I was on the slopes where (best of all) seniors over 70 ski for free. The site is convenient and compact -- comfortable room, dining...

The following "highway robbery locker key" anecdote of ours is typical of our overall Wisp "Resort" experience. I just noticed two mystery $25 charges from Wisp on our credit card bill. I called, explained my concern and was informed that they were a result of unreturned locker keys. We only received one locker key for our room, I informed them....

Spent three nights at WISP as beginning skiers – adults and kids. Ski school was great for the kids, as were private lessons for adults. Rental shop was very efficient and all the gear worked fine. All of us were skiing by day two no problem. Trails were fantastic for new skiers. Kids loved the tubing as well! As for...

We have skied the East coast from Killington to WV, Utah and Colorado. Clearly those expensive, massive ski resorts have a much wider list of ski options than Wisp. However, we liked Wisp because of the close proximity and easy drive. The low prices for life tickets and the resort was amazing. Even Holiday Valley in NY is priced much...
