“Skit Lift Lodge Restaurant”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We avoided going here for 15+ years. Just looked like a little shack. But a friend talked us into trying it. Excellent, wide selection of food. Good service. Nice place. Kind of far out of town but nice place.

I'm pretty sure that everything on the menu is really good, but the beer-battered fish was the best I've had since London! This is a great little restaurant that serves lunch on weekends and dinner nightly. Cozy, relaxed ambiance. Wonderful, friendly servers. I will go more often now that I know dinner is served!

Right at the base of Arizona's Snowbowl and San Francisco Peaks. We chose it because we planned to hike the peaks and the location was very convenient. When I checked out their website and saw that the $79 room included 2 ski lift tickets (a $30 value) and breakfast, it was a no-brainer. Please be aware this is seasonal, not always the case. The little cabins were cute and rustic, old, but well maintained, heated by a gas fireplace. They were actually used by the cast and crew of one of Clark Gable's movies. The office is also a restaurant & bar. The food was good, great service. We only stayed one night, but will definitely go back.

since we couldn't hike the Grand Canyon rim to rim this year, we decided to hike Humphrey's in Flagstaff. We stayed overnight at the Lodge, at the base of the ski area and Humphrey's. The room had the essentials and was clean. A cute little electric fireplace heated the room nicely. The bathrooms could use an overhaul. BUT, that being said, the setting is beautiful. The restaurant has very good food and beer and wine are offered. The entrees and desserts are homemade. The banana cheesecake was very good. Great full breakfast buffet on Sat. morning. I would go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the cabins with the electric fireplace

Close to the Snowbowl Ski Area (actually 6 miles away by mountain road) but this is not where you want to stay in Flagstaff! Almost any hotel in downtown Flag, or near the interstate, would be better. It's only a couple of more miles to get downtown from the ski area. No hot tubs or other recreational offerings anywhere on the property, a very limited restaurant, and the free breakfast is not great. What more can I say?

Rusty M, Manager at Ski Lift Lodge, responded to this review, 3 October 2013
Our cabins are very rustic and have been around since the early 1960's. We have renovated the rooms and think they are very unique to the area. Our restaurant is a favorite among locals and guests alike. Our menu offers pizzas, wings, pasta's, sandwiches, wraps, salads, appetizers, burritos,fish and more. As far as the staff being sketchy, I have never heard of such a thing. As you can read the reviews below, that seems to be an inaccurate description. I am not quite sure why that was mentioned as to lack of information. I understand that we do not have any hot tubs but we do have a basketball court and horse shoe pits on the property and we are the closest location to hiking and biking trails on the San Francisco Peaks. I do understand that we may not be the place for everyone but we are for most. Thank you for your review and happy travels.

Clean, old, good location. The free ski lift tickets sold us. Loved going up the mountain. No real breakfast tho. Old cereal in plastic containers. Bring your own pillow. Just old. Heater smells really bad. Not the best place for everyone.

Room Tip: Bring your own pillow

We stays here mainly due to the location. The staff was friendly, but if you arrive late you will need to make special arrangements. The room was clean however the beds seemed small. The price was a little high especially got off season. Didn't have the breakfast due to previous plans
