Reviewed 16 February 2014

We are used to skiing in Tahoe, but we heard about Brian Head through several of our friends. We finally decided to give it a go and we were very pleasantly surprised. Everyone was very friendly, the slopes were not crowded, and the lift lines were very short! If you are a world class skier, it might not suit your needs, but it is a perfect location for a family ski trip. The resort was nice and had underground parking (big bonus in my book). The building we stayed in was a short walk to the restaurants, main lobby/pool/gym, but it wasn't too bad, even in the cold. The lifts were within walking distance or you could take a complimentary shuttle to your choice of ski lifts and lodges. The only thing to remember is that this place is almost 10,000 feet in elevation, so you will be a little out of breath if you go sledding or go for a hike.

Room Tip: If you stay in the main building, you don't have to walk outside to get to the pool/gym/restaura...

Cozy room with a good View. TV was nice to see to have a flat screen. We stayed away from the main hotel area. Though we had to walk in and out in the snow to go use the restaurant, pool or spa or anything in the main hotel which seem odd since is was a low weekend. But I have to say the Pool and Sauna area is fantastic. Restaurant was good. We had breakfast lunch and dinner. Nothing really stood out but it was good. Every time you turn on the TV, there was a Creepy Sunburn guy in front of fire, seem to talk too long.

Friendly staff at check in but painfully slow. Request the main building if you stay here- the pool and restaurants are in this building and who wants to walk back through snow after getting out of the pool? There was supposedly only an upgraded room available in the main building- great- i wanted it! I paid the upgrade difference.... only to find out after a lot of typing and finally consulting with other staff that it wasn't really available. Ok- I was refunded the "upgrade" money and we moved on....slowly. Then for whatever reason the amount quoted by the desk clerk wasn't the amount on my reservation- which she realized her error after I showed her my confirmation. Many, many minutes later I finally got a room in one of the other buildings, no parking was available and no luggage carts available. Lugged my stuff and kids up to the room only to find the keys weren't activated so back to the painfully slow front desk again where I got a halfhearted apology. The room was nice, however the fireplace function was variable and it was somewhat dusty. The heaters are loud archaic contraptions on the wall that made climate control tricky. The beds offer little support- if you like super soft squishy beds this is your place. The kitchenette was a nice feature to have.

We then tried the restaurant- which was recently combined all into one. We did not have a reservation as previously there was a cafe- but were told we would be seated in "a few minutes" which was then "5-10" minutes. Over 30 minutes later we finally got a table and about 20 minutes after that we finally had a waitress take our order. The menu was average, overpriced. The food that FINALLY came out was mediocre and not one word from the staff on the length of wait. Even paying the check took me hunting down the waitress.

This place has potential if someone with some customer service knowledge were to help them improve their staff- they were all polite but everyone in the whole place seemed new and overwhelmed.

It is right next to Brian Head which was convenient and has a nice playground for the kids. They do offer larger rooms which is convenient for families.

Thank you for your feedback on our Cedar Breaks Lodge & Spa. It is only when we receive feedback from our guests that we can find solutions on how to improve our resort overall. Vacation time is very valuable and we want our guests to spend more time relaxing than waiting. It is displeasing to hear you had to return to the front desk due to the key card inconvenience. Our front desk manager has been notified to research and correct the error. We are glad to hear our team was able to recognize the upgrade charge fee and correct it. The maintenance team has been informed of your room quality and will take action as necessary to fix the problems. Your feedback on our restaurant is being forwarded to our restaurant management team to provide appropriate coaching. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and we look forward to seeing you soon.

nice villas, good location, several good restaurants and nice indoor pool complex. Indoor parking and close to the slopes. Either take the town shuttle or drive to the slopes in 1 minute. The resort is in good condition.

We stayed here for two nights this past weekend and I feel compelled to write a review on our drive back home to Vegas. Cedar Breaks Lodge was full of pleasant little surprises from start to finish. I didn't realize it was a Diamond-managed property, which should speak for itself I guess. The staff was great, noteably JACLYN at the front desk. We stayed in a Standard Room, which was nice and cozy after a snowy day on the mountain. I would agree with other reviews that the beds were on the soft side and the bedding although soft was hot at night. The mid size fridge and kitchen amenities were really nice. We could've packed a cooler full of food and saved some money this way but didn't know what to expect.
The pool and hot tub were nice. We didn't look for or visit the steam room. The shuttle drivers were also very nice. Brian Head makes it very easy to travel throughout their town with the complimentary shuttle service that continues to circle all day and into the evening hours. We didn't move our car out of the underground parking until we left today. The lodge food service was 3.5 stars. Definitely better than I was expecting. We visited the Steakhouse. Shuttle to Mi Pueblo Mexican restaurant in downtown area was yummy as well. The coffee shop and gift shop in the Lodge both had neat little finds and super friendly staff. We rented a movie for the second night. They had a great selection in the gift shop. Only con was some rowdy after midnight bar noise that drifted up to our room. There wasn't much else to do besides relax and let your worries disappear. Overall a great place to stay and we will be back to check it out in the summer months as well.

My husband and I stayed there this past weekend. The hotel was very nice and clean. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. We stayed in the smallest room and it was still very big. We did experience a few service shortfalls during our stay but the manager, Beau, was outstanding. He is the perfect example of exceptional guest service. With that being said, we will gladly return and recommend this place to anyone and everyone! Things happen, but how they are fixed is what matters. Everyone was very nice and welcoming. Don't pass this place up!

All in all a good hotel. Check in was quick, room clean and complete with a fireplace. Here are the cons;
-Pool area did not live up to the pictures. One out of two hot tubs was out of order, as was the steam room. Second hot tub was so crowded (both days of stay) that it was hard getting a spot. Don't picture yourself taking a romantic dip in the tub because there will be a handful of kids running around at any given time. Also the pool area has seen better days.
-Was hoping for a massage, but there was no one manning the spa or phone so a reservation proved impossible.
-Main restaurant was not open mid week.
-Room was not cleaned until 4pm.
And yes...beds are veery soft. But nice bedding made up for it.
Also, on three out of four occasions when dining in the hotel, change was not given. Not a huge deal, but I'd like to decide myself how much to tip.

Room Tip: main building, 3rd floor
