2 moms and 5 children traveling for a few days over spring break and we chose this place...glad we did! We knew from previous reviews it wasn't as large as GW Lodge, but it sure kept our lively crew busy for a few days. Our kids really enjoyed the waterpark and it was easy to keep an eye on them....

We booked one night during our stay in the area checking out colleges. I'm thankful that I booked through Expedia and didn't pay full price! On check in our room was not ready, we decided to pay for water park passes to pass the hour or two while our room was prepared. The water park was over crowded and understaffed....

We used a Living Social deal to book a 2 day stay and it was awesome. First, our room was going to be next to the children's activity center and being late nighters - that was not working - so the manager, Mark, was awesome in moving us so we would not incur extra costs. Service here was super, rooms...

My family visited to have a weekend getaway and to zipline, use the mountain coaster and to snow tube. Unfortunately due to weather, our zipline tour was cancelled and mountain coaster was nice but very cold. Although the ground was snow covered, we were told that snow tubing was closed for the season despite the website listing it as open...

My family and I stayed at Hope Lake Lodge for the weekend - Friday through Sunday. Overall, it was a great experience. We don't ski, but we still enjoyed what Hope Lake had to offer. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and every interaction with them was pleasant. The lobby is awesome. There is a fireplace going, and a...

Hope Lake Lodge is a nice enough place to stay, but pricey during ski season. The water park gets worse every year. They are obviously trying to save money and have resorted to not heating the indoor pools and keeping the air temperature throughout the park at an uncomfortably cool level. We were miserable standing in cold water in a...

I HATE THIS PLACE. I just got here after a horrific car ride through winter hell. We called yesterday to ask for an early check in and we were told our room would be put on a priority cleaning so that we could check in early. As mentioned by other reviewers the staff is helpless.
