The Inn at Solitude
Ranked #1 of 1 Solitude B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 December 2008

I stayed at this inn for 3d/2n as a part of a conference.

I took Canyon Transportation roundtrip between airport and resort. Even under snowy conditions, they were on-time for my trip back to airport, which was great.

The facilities are generally quite good. Just past the lobby, there's a game room (basically a table plus board games plus a 'library') and a 'great room' (with fireplace) and a bar. These all have an upscale 'bavarian' feel. There's also a nice pool and a hot tub just outside the side doors of the ground floor, although they were both out-of-order on the first full day I was there. One floor down, in the basement (lower-level) there is a conference room, and the ski lockers. You get a ski locker key for a $30 deposit. If you don't want a ski locker, then tell them upfront and they won't stick that $30 deposit on your credit card.

The first room that I got had a broken phone outlet. To make a long story short, after about 30 minutes the management figured out that it couldn't be fixed, and they sent me to the room across the hall, which was fine. (Both rooms are very clean and shown in the pics -- the pics with view of other buildings was the first room, pics with view of the slopes was the room I moved to.) The vanity sink and simple coffee maker were in a nook, with a bathroom door leading to a toilet and bathtub. The closet included a couple cotton robes, and a humidifier (which was great for the second night). But there was no iron or ironing board (I guess these aren't that necessary at a ski resort anyways).

Fully functional free wi-fi was great.

Immediately outside the resort, you can find an ice cream/pizza shoppe, a restaurant (Creekside), equipment rental and some slopes. But if you want the majority of the slopes or a ski equipment retail store (and the ski lessons, and more equipment rental), you have to take a 1-minute shuttle. It comes by every 15 minutes, which is convenient.

There are 5+ restaurants around the 'campus.' And finally, there are almost NO lift lines. I went in the middle of December, and the shuttle bus drivers commented that even in January and March, there are barely any lift lines.

For skiers, the only really big minus is that the slopes close at 4pm. You have to go to the main Brighton resort to get night skiing in.

As far as costs go, an angus burger + drink at the Creekside restaurant runs $20. A deli sandwich + health juice at the pizzeria runs $12. A day-long lift ticket runs $49-$65 (depending on season). Full equipment rental (skis + boots + poles) is about $26. A 1-hour private lesson runs $65.

As for the views and the skiing, really couldn't be beat!

Stayed March 12-14, 40 minute shuttle ride from Salt Lake Airport. Great service by Rocky Mountain Transportation - no cars are allowed in the village, our driver was very knowledgeable, helped get our bags into the Inn. We had a 1st floor king, plenty of room for 2 adults, 1 minor. Very spacious Bathroom, comfy bed, bathrobes, Aveda amenities. Hot tub and pool both available and nicely heated. Storage lockers for skis/boards available in basement. VERY convienent. Easy walk to lifts. Note - the shuttle from base to day lodge is only for KIDS. Adults must walk a bit, then can ski/board part of it.
Could use more options for dining. The Inn restaurant had a breakfast buffet every morning, not much selection, 2 cereals, one type eggs (scrambled), either pancakes or french toast (cold), bacon, sausage. Serve yourself.
Ate dinner at Creekside. Food good and even made special dinner for husband.
Skiing/Boarding - was as they say, no lift lines. However, seemed like more capacity then they could handle for group lessons & somewhat disorganized. The kids were 1:8 instructor/kid ratio for most lessons. At Steamboat they gave out written updates on progress each day as kids learned new skills, did not have that happen here, although instructor happy to share if asked.
The equipment rentals were not that great either, suggest going somewhere else for snowboarding rentals if needed.
Overall a pretty good time though. Tons of snow!!!

My family stayed two nights at the Inn in Feb. The location is great - easy access from SLC -- easy parking -- quick jump onto the slopes. I liked the rooms, the location and the amenities. However, I thought that the service at the front desk was really lackluster. All too often there was no one at the front desk - I have had better desk service at a motel 8. Given that disappointment, I would stay at the Inn again as I really liked the slopes, the rental center and the lockers for storing my ski equipment. The connection to the Nordic center was also a nice feature – my 70 year old parents can’t downhill ski anymore but they enjoyed an afternoon of snowshoeing.
