There's only one reason to stay at Alpine Valley Resort, which is of course ski in / ski out access to the ski lifts. It's a basic hotel with friendly service and adequate rooms. What is nice is having a convenient home-base right on the hill. If you're skiing with a group and some want to ski more than others - it's fantastic to be able to go back to the room or relax at the pool without leaving the ski area. For example, the kids may want to ski 12 hours non-stop from 10-10 but the parents might want to take a nap.
I don't think it makes much sense to give in-depth review on every amenity for simple hotel like this. They're not claiming to be upscale or pricing the rooms as such. For a hotel of this class I really only consider cleanliness and just basic comfort. I found the rooms to be clean, the beds were average and the showers were hot. That's all I require from a motel and Alpine Valley is great if you go there with this level of expectation. If you are looking for a higher class of resort, there are nicer places 15 miles away by Lake Geneva. If you don't care at all about ski in / ski out then you could probably save a few bucks by staying at a nearby motel.
The only negative is that the walls are really thin there will be groups of people walking in their ski boots. For that reason I actually prefer to stay on the 2nd floor - even though the 1st floor is more convenient for ski in/out access.
