Four of us stayed at Cortina for 5 days in Sept. 2012, and found everything was fine. So when husband and I decided to take some vacation in VT last month, we didn't hesitate to book with Cortina again. The front desk person, Juan, was very nice but he couldn't make up for defects. This time, our room was next to the one we had last visit 2 yrs ago. Maybe we lucked out the first time because now, our room looked very tired: wallpaper peeling in bathroom, daylight under door going out to balcony, outside of balcony door looked like a crowbar had been used on it. The easy chair in the room was so worn that when you sat in it, you sunk to within a couple of inches of the floor. Needed my husband to rescue me or I'd still be trapped in the sink hole Even using the 3 extra bed pillows didn't raise the seat high enough to make it usable. The chairs in upstairs lobby area were equally broken down. Management should be ashamed to offer "free" breakfast. It should have been eliminated altogether. Two years ago, they had hot dishes as well as cold ones. This time, there was cold cereal, pitcher of lukewarm milk, a decrepit toaster & waffle machine, bread and a couple of pastries. There were 2 bowls of melon that I was afraid to eat since the fruit was warmer than room temperature and I doubt it had ever been refrigerated. Went to make cup of tea. Big mistake! The hot water was brown, apparently they didn't clean the coffee/hot water combo and the water was tainted with watered down coffee. Yuck and double yuck! So, if you decide to stay here be sure to budget for breakfasts for your family at a real restaurant. Finally, if you are petite or even just short, you will have problems climbing into bed. It had high platform, then the deep box spring and equally deep mattress. I'm 5'2" and the top of the mattress was higher than my waist. Nothing like having to launch yourself at the bed and hope for the best. Needless to say, we cut our visit short and won't be back again. Too bad because in good location between ski resorts, across from Pico and just down the road from Killington and Okemo. Hopefully, the owners will get things straightened out but I won't be recommending this place to our friends.
