Reviews of Red Wolf Lodge at Squaw Valley
Olympic Valley, California
What a nice place to stay if you want to ski and stay in the middle of beautiful Squaw Village. We purchased a studio unit from Interval but needed a bigger unit and front desk was able to upgrade us to 1 bdr for extra $25/night. The unit is not very specious but super clean and has cabin theme with log furniture and fireplace. The bedroom has a nice king bed with very nice bedding, living room has a brand new pull out sofa. Kitchen well stoked, bathroom has a Jacuzzi tab. I can only say the great things about the unit. We were family of 4 so it was ok for 3 days that we were there. Location is super! We did not use a car, but were walking to restaurants and stores (kind of expensive). Our daughter and her friend used bicycles that were available for free from the resort. The front desk people were super nice and accommodating. We stayed there in the midd of November (2014) and not much places were open but we would definitely comeback during ski season or in the spring-summer time. Resort has small but very nice club house, 2 jacuzzi, which were very clean. Lobby has fresh coffee or tea and lots of free DVDs to watch. They charge $10/night for the use of the facility. I liked that we were charge this fee for only the nights we stayed instead of the whole week that we purchased.
Clean, comfortable, close to everything. Friendly staff. The skiing is world class and being right at the Tram makes it so convenient.
Place was filthy. Holes in the towels. Snall unit, Parking lot was shared with maintenace lot for squaw valley. Furnishings okay, but very uncomfortable beds. $7 fee per night for use of facilities.
Pass it up,.
My family enjoyed a week at Red Wolf Lodge last winter - We could not ask for a more complete facility - the lodge was wonderfully furnished, and the best part - we had everything at our fingertips from our "slope- side" condo. Just a few step outside - Squaw Valley Olympic Village has it all - and our family loved it. We are coming back for a summer week next year.
My family stayed at the Red Wolf for a week. We were very pleased with the place.
It's very convenient to skiing as it's got a ramp in the back that takes you right out to the ski runs. You can ski down the Red Dog or mountain run and end up right at the property. The rooms are also quite nice. My understanding is that the place used to be a bit run down, but they just finished a major remodel and the rooms are now beautiful. There are all new appliances, furniture, beds, carpeting, etc. It truly looks like a 5 star place now.
Another plus if you have young children is that the Squaw Children's Center (with daycare) is next door.
Also, the new Village at Squaw Valley - which is half completed - is across the street. There are around 5 restaurants within walking distance and a bunch more at the Squaw Resort which has a free shuttle. I was also happy about having free covered parking at the base of the mountain.
The only downside I can see is that there's not a pool for non-winter use. There are two hot tubs though. For pool access in the summer, they recommended the one at high camp up on the top of the mountain, but that would cost you big money to ride up the tram.
