The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with praise going to the hotel's location, rooms, staff and value.

Many guests praised the hotel's location, finding it close to restaurants, bars, skiing and daycare. One patron noted, "It doesn't get more convenient than Cornerstone Lodge for skiers. The lodge is steps from the lifts, main lodge, lift tickets etc.".

The hotel's accommodations were enjoyed by numerous reviewers. They described their rooms as clean, spacious, well equipped and quiet, with high ceilings and great mountain views. A few travellers were disappointed with their lodgings, however (see below).

Several lodgers were pleased with the level of customer service they received. They found the staff to be accommodating, friendly and helpful, and claimed they provided an efficient check-in service.

The hotel's value was enjoyed by some patrons, who described the rates as reasonable and great. One guest remarked, "By far the best accommodation at the hill when considering value and quality. The prices are far better than counterparts on the hill and the location is ideal for access and ski out".

The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were some common complaints about noise transfer, the rooms and the hotel's facilities.

Some lodgers complained of noise disturbances during their stay. They reported noise from guests in adjacent rooms and the nearby bar's parking lot, as well as noise from the main-floor cafe and snow-clearing machines outside.

Although the majority of reviewers were pleased with their spacious and well-equipped rooms, a few lodgers complained about their accommodations. They reported dated decor, worn carpets and furniture, uncomfortable beds and old TVs.

A few guests were disappointed with the ski lockers and hot tub, both of which they described as very small.
