A friend and I stayed one night in a queen room with a loft. This was our 2nd stay @ Stonebridge.We ski at Elk Mt. and the Inn's location to the ski area is great. The overall layout and feel of the property is very pleasant,but upgrades are seriously needed. The biggest complaint we have is the heater/ac unit in the rooms. There is no thermostat on these units,so they will run,blowing air continuously unless manually turned off. On a frigid winter's night,finding the perfect air temp is impossible,thereby your room is either a sweatbox or a meat locker. We tried to find the happy medium on the temp dial..to no avail.This means that someone is responsible for turning the heat on and off throughout the night! Inevitably,3am rolled around and we were both FREEZING in our beds. We remembered this when we checked in(our last visit was a few yrs. ago). Not a relaxing night. The furnishings are on the "antique" style,which is fine,but the TV was very "nostalgic" and the remote just didn't work. Table top flat screens would be a minimal investment and would go a long way in creating a lasting impression to guests.While the room and common areas were clean,the rugs and furnishings are worn and stains were apparent. The railing going up the staircase to the 2nd floor rooms is very wobbly and was in the same condition the last time we were there.Sadly,it just seems that this once lovely property is slipping.Dont expect much from the continental breakfast-croissants,a stick of butter,jelly,some fruit and tiny blueberry muffins. It's proximity to Elk makes it the only game in town,and it was pretty full during our stay.Hopefully.management will make some needed upgrades,but with little competition,complacency may reign. The shining star to this Inn is the restaurant/bar. The food,atmosphere and service are fabulous! While we will not be staying here again,we will probably eat here on our next ski trip.
