Very friendly accomodating staff and a nice complimentary breakfast. Close to many restaurants and the shuttle bus stop was across the street. The room was up to date, but seemed on the smaller side. It would have been nice if the TV had a dvd player.

Thanks for acknowledging some of the finer points of our hotel. While our 37" flat screen HD TVs do not have a DVD player, they do offer an easily accessible external input that you could use to play a DVD from a laptop or other similar device. You could also use the TV as a monitor to look at the photos/videos taken while on your vacation, again powered by your own device. Be sure to have the connecting cords as we are unable to provide those. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

If you're going to be out on the mountain all day, this is the perfect place to stay:

1. Price - we paid around $250 for 3 night-wkend in Jan. Cheapest I've ever paid for lodging near a mountain. Bonus: if you book through Winter Park's website, you can also get a significant discount on lift tickets

2. Amenities - room was spacious, large comfortable beds, indoor hot-tub, great breakfast and very friendly staff (entire staff was extremely helpful & friendly!)

3. Location - in the town of Winter Park (the mountain/lifts are 2 mi away) but on free shuttle route. Across the street for restaurants & ski rental places. Very convenient

If you plan to spend a lot of time in your hotel, then this might not be the best option - you do hear anyone walking in the hallway, especially in the morning - but otherwise, def recommend staying here.

Thank you so much for your review. You use the term "cheapest", but I like to think "best value". Maybe they mean the same to some folks. Now all we need to do is figure out how to make ski boots in the hallways quiet (slippers?). Come back soon!

This is an inexpensive motel (for a ski area) that meets all Best Western minimums. It is conveniently located, clean, and comfortable. Quarters are roomy and well furnished.
It has limited parking with poor to non-existent snow removal. Housekeeping tends to unlock and jam the doors open on all the rooms they intend to clean. So your room may be wide open and unattended for 5 hours during the day, along with 6 to 10 others. Some rooms have no trash can in the bathroom. The motel is understaffed and guests hear a lot of grousing and disrespect from the employees. While breakfast is pretty good, the traffic flow gets contorted and seating can be quite limited.

Room Tip: High floors are less noisy

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, as we very much enjoy hearing from our guests. I would, however, like to point out the inconsistency and inaccuracy of your comments. You give us good marks for our well furnished, comfortable rooms, our cleanliness, the location and even our "pretty good" breakfast, but you rate us 2 stars out of 5? That doesn't seem quite fair. Regarding room security, we never leave guest rooms "wide open" during the period of time our housekeepers perform their daily service. What you observed were checked out rooms awaiting inspection after being cleaned - - - a required procedure of ours before those rooms are made available to new arrivals. While we would never claim to be "perfect", we do work very hard to make our guests stay as comfortable as possible. I would encourage the traveler reading this review to survey other comments by our guests which I feel is a more accurate portrayal of our property.

The Alpenglo hotel in Winter Park is very nice with great staff. The free breakfast is great. The rooms are average but clean and comfy. Wi-FI is good once you get into it. We have a dog with epilepsy so nice that pets are allowed since we have to take him with us where ever we go!

Thanks for coming to see us and brining your furry friend! We have a limited number of pet friendly room so would suggest that other travelers call the hotel directly to make sure that room type is the one being booked. The amenities you mention (wi-fi and breakfast) actually exceed the Best Western requirements - - - just our way of trying to give a little something extra on your visit. Hope to see you again soon.

You can't beat the location, friendliness of staff and value for the money. It's the only place I stay time after time when travels take me to the Winter Park Ski area. Breakfast is always hot and plenty of room for self parking near the front door.

Clean hotel with the basics. We rarely had housekeeping service. The hotel is located right across a ski pickup and in the middle of great restaurant locations. Fontenot, Denos, Strip & Steak & McDonalds for kids. We watched New Year's fireworks from room #301. Nice surprise! We had Queen deluxe room (2 queens). Roomy enough for a small family of four to sleep. Jacuzzi in back bldg did not look inviting. Bummer after skiing all day. Breakfast buffet of continental food was in tiny area and congested over New Year's crowd. Coffee & Hot Chocolate watered down. Front desk personnel were polite and helped when asked. This is a cheaper option than condos but obviously less private, more confined, and breakfast difficult. We ate in rooms in the mornings off food trays. Housekeeping picked up next to coke machines/hallway after a couple of days. In a pinch, this option could have value if expectations aren't high.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, but I'm disappointed that we were just "OK" in your eyes, as we strive to be more than that. There are things that are within our control (housekeeping and quality of breakfast items) and others that are outside of our control (such as when everyone decides to have breakfast). Regardless, I shall share your concerns with my staff and work hard to regain your trust. Our desire is and always has been to exceed, not just meet, expectations.

Close to everything: Bus stop, restaurants and Hideaway park where kids can play. The complimentary breakfast served is wonderful so you don't need to go out. The stuffs are helpful and wonderful to deal with. We will certainly come back for another trip next year.

Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm glad to see you found Hideaway Park, just a block away, which offers a great playground for the kids and a family friendly sledding hill. The Town of Winter Park has just finished improving the lighting at the park, making it much more inviting and easier to navigate. This location is the site of multiple music festivals in the summer, so please keep us in mind if you happen to return for one of those events!
