I thought the Ridge Motor Inn had many fun things to do. They have a huge variety of arcade games. They also have a huge swimming pool and hot tub that is very relaxing. The restraunt had great food and very good ribs. During breakfast the service was great and friendly, and had great varieties of breakfast meals that were excellent. It also has a great location next to the ski resort cascade mountain. The management service was very friendly and did anything possible to help when there was a problem. It isn't the fanciest hotel in the world but it's very comfortable and relaxing. The rooms aren't luxurious but they will probably fulfill your needs. The owners were very nice and the hotel is at a very affordable price. All the employees were friendly towards adults and children. They also have a weight room. The hotel is a very appropriate place to bring children. If you are searching for a fun hotel that is close to the ski lodge than I suggest you look into the Best Western Ridge Motor Inn.

If you expect a red carpet and a chocolate on your pillow, go elsewhere but if your tastes lie in a cheaper, no-nonsense approach, this hotel is fine. It could probably use a renovation and the last time I was there, buckets in the hallway were catching water from a leaky roof but the restaurant was nice and the staff, friendly. I stay there when I go skiing and with lift tickets and ski rental being what they are, it's nice to at least have a cheaper place to stay.

This hotel is very basic, but also very cheap. The whole place probably needs remodeled, but its fine for the price. The hotel staff is friendly.

Sometimes the heat doesn't work the best, and the room doors are very loud.

There is a decent restaurant inside the hotel, and a very nice indoor heated pool and jacuzzi tub.

Its not luxury, but its a great place to stay inexpensively - which makes up for the price of ski lift tickets in the area.
