Terrible Service Decaying Resort

1.0 on January 04, 2009

The service at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort is terrible and the resort itself is in major need of renovation. Additionally, any alleged discounts are nothing more than a scam. The staff is defensive about rather than committed to addressing the resort's shortcomings. The resort's shortcomings are many a few examples are as follows: the railing on the exterior of the resort is split, the front steps are crumbling and slate is missing, the rooms have bug and rodent repellent devices in very visible spaces, the bedding smells, depending on what room your in you will experience sewage odors (which the resort staff is well aware of.), the heating system is non adjustable. As for the staff they are curt, defensive and non responsive. The staff at a Super 8 motel is friendlier and more accommodating. Any discount offered is a sham. The resort offered a discount rate that was supposed to include one free dinner and free breakfast on each day. However they then charge a facilities fee which covers among other things breakfast and dinner. So you do not receive the benefit alleged in the discount price. In addition, the facilities fee was supposed to include access to all resort facilities. However, when you arrive the staff will inform you that certain things cost extra such as sleigh rides. In short you feel as if you've been ripped off by deceptive advertising. Perhaps the local department of consumer affairs will be helpful in investigating such deceptive advertising scams. In short, I'd recommend staying anywhere but this establishment. I left frustrated, angry, and generally felt ripped off.
