2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

So we book at Xmas which is almost double the price - but there's no snow so the nice people move our reservation to March - having paid $600 (non-refundable) for two nights we expect the Deer Lodge's usual level of quality - we stay there all the time - this time there were light bulbs burned out, dishes in the dishwasher, NO coffee, other people's soap in the shower - a beer on the porch - and the unit faced the parking lot - still determined to have a good time boarding we carry on.... until the toilet overflows ... so I asked Steve... do we still have to pay xmas rates in March since you didn't have to pay anyone overtime or decorate our room with a xmas tree? and apparently yes we do. ... oh and this particular unit came with a school locker for our boards so we had to lock them in the vehicle. It was still fun but... you feel kind ripped off at that point. As well there were people above us that sounded like a herd of elephants. No one thing here was complaint worthy but the whole thing was not good.

We stayed in # 104 Thursday night and were very impressed: spotlessly clean, spacious well appointed 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit with true ski-in ski-out convenience. We will be back.

We are a family of 4, 2 boys ages 9 and 12 and yes we are fussy.

Parking is a bit tight downstairs

We have stayed at many different places on the mountain and the Deer is by far the best on the mountain for many reasons, including being walking distance to the lodge should you wish to dine or have an apres ski drink or two, or to the store for cold wine or beer (hard booze too), chips, soup, etc.

Yes it cost just over $400 for the night, but that may have been on account of our not being able to use the reservation we made during xmas due to lack of snow.

Front desk were helpful.

I wouldn't bother with the hot tub tho, too small, appears an after thought.

btw, the snow conditions and skiing on Thurs and Friday were great!

No representative to check us in to a dingy outdated room with broken dishwasher, broken dryer no games no DVDs. Alpine closed, Nordic closed so representative offered us early checkout and adjustment by manager. After we check out manager days no refund no adjustment. Basically forces us to walk away from thousands of dollars! Worst service by an accommodation company ever!

Do not be misled! If you click on deer lodge accommodations link on mount washington website you are booking through a stiff, sub par, private rental company. We did not even have a representative check us in. Waited in the lobby, repeatedly phoned a number on a handmade sign, only to be signed in by a professional friendly employee of competing rental company. This rental had the worst service of any stay I have had anywhere, I would never book with this company again and waste hard earned money!
