“Rooms are a huge disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2011

We traveled to Rainbow Mountain for a weekend with friends. While I thought it was expensive for a rustic place, I figured the cost included breakfast and dinner so it might be worth the cost. After spending a weekend there, I would say it is not worth the price. First of all, the rooms were a huge disappointment. They are old and run down. The bathroom had rust stained fixtures and mold in the shower stall. Awful! The food was okay but the whole package was hardly worth the cost.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2010

My partner and I stayed here in October. We traveled to NY for business and decided to stay here on the way home. I stupidly booked 2 nights prior to getting there and seeing what it was like. We were charged for a "Theme Weekend" yet there was NO THEME whatsoever. There were very creepy guests who took over the resort and the staff catered to their every needs pretty much forgetting about other guests.
I was really looking forward to this trip and was incredibly disappointed. They state on their website that they are "rustic" but "charming". There was nothing charming about hair and rust in the showers that were filthy. The towels and sheets were stained and looked terrible. We were unable to get our money back and were ignored when we inquired about it.
Although we were there in the fall and expected fewer guests, I expected better service. The food was good, but there were numerous meals that we had to pay additional for as the room price did not cover it. And they ran out of some food as mentioned by another guest. Wings could easily have been purchased from a local store.
The bar was a disaster. The karaoke was not working and it took them over an hour to figure it out. The drinks were OVERPRICED for the drop of alcohol that the bartender put in them.
I looked forward to this stay for several years and was disappointed with every aspect. I would never recommend anyone stay here.
The theme weekend when we were there was a joke and we should have been reimbursed. VERY DISAPPOINTING.

WE stayed at Rainbow Mtn mid-week in July. The staff was friendly.
The grounds and the accomodations leave something to be desired, but I wouldn't let it deter me from staying there, because it is affordable, the meals are pretty good (not great) and everyone is so nice. You can truly relax. One of our dispappointments was that there were several things on the menu that they ran out of--- things that could easily be bought at the local supermarket until their usual deliveries arrived-- like cheese and eggs. One morning they had no eggs for breakfast! The pool is the best part, it is clean. We watched as one of the workers scrubbed the entire perimeter of the pool on his hands and knees with a scrubber and comet. The grounds need serious attention. Nowadays, people are accustomed to seeing beautiful grounds and landscaping and that seemed lacking. LIke I said, it is affordable so we'd definitely return, though it is not perfection.
