We stayed at the Pokolodi this past weekend and had a nice enough time. We arrived early and were happy to be accomodated prior to check in time. The staff was helpful and was able to give us clear directions and offered some decent restaurant recommendations.
Unfortunately we were put in a room right above the road on the second floor and could hear the bus traffic passing by all evening. This was compounded by the solid mattress that made it uncomfortable to sleep. While the Pokolodi can't change much about their location and rooms, we were dissappointed to find a huge tear in our comforter when we arrived. The rip was nicely hidden by the housekeeper underneath the pillow and left for us to find. This made us a bit hessitant to sleep on the sheets beneath it, but found the rest of the room to be clean enough.
The breakfast also leaves quite a bit to be desired. They did have toast, english muffins, hard boiled eggs and cereal. While that may have worked in the 90's, the standard continental breakfast is now far superior to their selection (even in expensive ski towns).
In the end, we left the Pokolodi somewhat dissappointed after reading all the rave reviews on TripAdvisor, but for the price we paid you cannot expect the Ritz. Would we tell you to stay away, probably not. Would we go back ourselves, probably not.
