stayed at the Blue Mountain Inn for 1 night last week for a family getaway. The Blue Mountain Village is absolutely incredible and should be a worthwhile stop on any travellers schedule. It is right at the base of Blue Mountain and has the most amazing and fun shops and restaurants. It really is picture perfect beauty. The whole experience was fantastic.
The Blue Mountain Inn is a 5-10 minute walk from the center of the Village. It is a beautiful walk - right at the base of the mountain, so it is pretty picturesque.
We stayed in a room with 2 double beds. From what I understand, the Inn has been renovated over the past couple of years. When I told friends that I was staying in the Inn, they gave me a weird look and suggested I stay in one of the more expensive hotels right in the Village. The reviews on tripadvisor were great, so I brushed off my friends. The hotel room was definitely renovated in the last year or two and looked amazing. Our view out of our bedroom window looked right up the mogul run and had a fantastic view!! My one concern was the noise volume (based on other tripadvisor reviews), but we stayed on a Thursday night, so there wasn't any wild rowdiness. It was great that way too.
The parts of the hotel that were not renovated in the last year or two, look very tired. The carpets in the elevators are all ripped up and torn. The luggage carts are from the 70's. That's pretty much it though - the lobby, the restaurant, the meeting rooms (from what I could tell) all looked fantastic and renovated.
My one issue was the staff friendliness. Being a getaway/resort hotel, I would figure that the staff would all be wanting to go above and beyond. Not here. None of the front desk or housekeeping staff communicated with us one word longer then they absolutely had to. I wouldn't consider them friendly, but they didn't do a bad job, so whatever. It was just a little surprising. In the same breath - the staff in the restaurant were amazing.
The main reason why I chose this hotel over the ones in the Village was because of the indoor pool. I was travelling with a 3 year old and a 10 month old - I couldn't go to an outdoor pool and didn't want to walk outdoors to the Plunge area. I was suprised to know that the Blue Mountain Inn was the ONLY hotel in the Village that had an indoor pool.
When I travel back to the Blue Mountain Village - and I definitely will be because it is so cool - I will probably stay right in the Village, like Mosaic or Weider Lodge, and pay a little extra. Its not that the Blue Mountain Inn was bad, because it definitely wasn't, but I was just expecting a little more. I was happy with the value for the money that I spent, but again, I was just expecting more.
