Looking at the website, I was impressed by the way the Chestnut Mountain Resort appeared. My husband and I had planned a getaway for our anniversary, and we made reservations for this hotel. When we checked in we walked up to our room, all the while smelling a horrible "boiled-vegetable" smell. We tried to convince ourselves that it was the nature of the ski resort. The room was an even worse smell! The carpets were filthy. There was a sign that said the toilet had been sanitized, but I have my doubts. We tried to chalk it up as we're easygoing people, and went down to the pool area to enjoy the hottub. Much to our dismay, the hot tub was dirty and cold and was clearly out of order. I went to the front desk and was told that it had been broken for a few days but the part was on its way. We did not have a very pleasant stay at Chestnut Mountain. Did I mention that they do not have comment cards?
