From ok to bad!

When I arrived there was a pair of sweatpants left behind the drawer. In the time of Covid this did not assure me that the room was sanitized. Also, I was one of the only patrons wearing a mask inside. Of the 7 nights I had to call the front desk 4 times to have my heat turned on. The morning of December 17th there was no hot water. “We’re working on it “ was the only response I received. The electricity went off 4 times. One time for 40 minutes. So, the elevators also stopped working! The group I come with has been coming to The Cliff for over 25 years. But NO MORE!

Mask policies are not enforced, guests are horrifying in their compliance and show disrespect for others . Staff refuses to ask guests to wear masks even while standing in front of signs saying “masks required”.


Beyond disappointing

I’ll start with the good. You are at Snowbird which is an amazing ski area. So location is what you are paying for. You are not paying for a relaxing or luxurious stay, despite what the price might lead you to believe. What’s not relaxing is the fact that the doors between adjoining rooms are not soundproofed so the screaming children next door will almost be right there with you in your room. What’s also not relaxing is waking up at 4am from the headlights of a snowplow outside your room, because the blackout curtains don’t go all the way to the end of the windows. That snowplow will continue to grind outside your window for the next 25 minutes and you may not fall back to sleep because the room is at a constant 66 degrees. But guess what - if you want coffee before the Atrium opens at 7, you better hope your dinky Keurig wasn’t broken like ours was, and forget about even a creamer because there won’t be one. For $600+ an night I would expected the bare minimum of a cotton ball or qtip in the bathroom. It’s more no-frills than a Holiday Inn. The lights in the bathroom have one option—on or off. So it’s either bright glaring lights while you sleep or fumbling in the dark to find the bathroom. The desk staff appears to be made up of young inexperienced kids who have no idea about anything so your complaints will be met by dull stares. You will be told they probably don’t have another room, even though almost ever door on your floor (except with with the screaming kids of course) remains sealed with their “Covid cleaned” sticker that has not been broken as the room awaits a new guest. We chose the Cliff Lodge because it seemed like the most recently renovated, and you can see areas they put money into - like the front desk and arrival lobby. Clearly whoever designed those areas did not work on the rooms, which feel cheap and depressing in comparison. The entire time we stayed there someone’s room service trays sat outside their room piled up in the hallway. The fact that the dirty dishes were still there when we left is about all you need to know about the level of service at the Cliff Lodge.


Dont say your an owner unless you are at the spa!

Beautiful resort with lots to do. Go off season for a more relaxing time and access to all. Great for families as when you are there all things are within walking distance. Good food at the restaurants but they are short staffed at this time.

I brought 12 of my employees and their families to stay here. Our first issue began the day before we came up. One of my employees needed a place to breastfeed her little one, she called ahead to see how they could accommodate her. They told her it was not possible, there was nothing they could do. It took me getting on the phone with a manager to have them get her an early check in. Then there was the room service - morning #1, they didn't even answer the phone. Morning #2, we had left our filled out order form on the door the night before at 3pm. When our selected delivery time came and went, we looked outside to discover no one picked it up. For some, that might not be a big deal, or a 1st world problem. For us, it's pretty miserable, our son who has a time consuming routine in the morning, that makes it so we can't leave for a quite while. The food was also not good. I'm pretty disappointed. I was really wanting to bring my family back up here this winter to stay and ski. I think we will be going to Park City now.
