Lake Placid Lodge
Reviewed 19 February 2008

stayed there for a week for skiing - I think this is a very nice place - stayed in room 313 in third floor, a 1 bdrm with a loft - very clean, and conveniently located literally across from the Whistler Creekside gondola - only a 2-3 minute walk to the gondola - MUCH quieter place and vibe in this area - went to the Mexican restaurant literally across the street from here, as well as the Zen Japanese restaurant - there is also a Boston Pizza place all within a 2-3 minute walk from the location - didn't really have a downside from our point of view - convenient, quiet, clean, full kitchen, and several restaurant choices within a 2-3 minute walk -

Went out one night to Monk's Grill - outstanding prime rib, but for 30+ dollars a plate I felt if was worth it, both in quality and portion size as well - very upscale place - treat yourselves to this place while you are in Whistler - you won't be disappointed -

you must realize that there is no front desk there - but you can call the place where you checked in and they're more than happy to help you - they even made me dinner reseravations one night - we had a slight problem with the dishwasher (gasket/seal was worn out and some water came out) and the next day it was taken care of -

all in all, I would give this place a solid 4 out of 5

I stayed in room 123, which I would not recommend. I'm being specific about the room because in Whistler many of the accomodations are managed by the owners so there may in fact be other rooms at the Lake Placid Lodge with more consciousness owners.

Upon booking the room at alluradirect.com we recieved an email reply that included lots of info, including this gem:

"Front Desk: When you arrive, you are not required to check in at the front desk.The front desks purpose is to rent out units for owners who prefer not to do it themselves and to assist those guests etc.If there are any problems directly related to our unit they will not be able to help you.Any problems should be directed to us."

Translation we as the owners want to keep as much of the rental proceeds as possible and invest as little as possible in improving your rental experience (this is something to watch for in general at Whistler). When we arrived the brightly lit room we saw in the pictures was a unfortunatley very dim. Several light bulbs were burned out and all of the lamps we saw in the pictures were no longer in the room. We attempted to contact the owners but they never returned our calls. The refrigerator was very-very loud making it annoying to hang-out/sleep in the unit. Similarly the fireplace had a super-loud fan in it which ruined any pleasure in using the fireplace.

The one positive is that the unit was clean.

Where do I start...first the positive. Loved the 1 bedroom feature, worked great with the kids. It is across the street from Whistler Kids which was awesome. The bad...the property was under construction. There is no reception, the lockbox where we had to get a key out of was horrid. The pool and hot tub were closed due to some kind of bacteria found (yuck). The room was moderately clean and the sheets had holes and rips in them. There was a no smoking policy but the furniture and sheets definitely had a faint cigarette smoke odor. I honestly do not think I would stay here again. Next time I'd rather spend a bit more money and have all the cons fixed.
