Popular with outdoor adventurists, this Best Western branch is within a five-minute drive of the Bear Mountain and Snow Summit ski areas. The 80 guest rooms are slightly outdated, but all include a fireplace, large windows, and marble bathrooms with heated towel racks. Select rooms also include a Jacuzzi tub and balcony. In addition to nearby activities, which range from hiking to horseback riding, the hotel has an on-site game room and a heated outdoor pool surrounded by towering pine trees. Le Bistro hosts a free daily breakfast buffet, while Tiffany’s Lounge serves weekend cocktails beneath a century-old Tiffany dome.

Room to Book:

For the best views of the surrounding wilderness, request a top-floor room facing the back of the property.

Insider Tip:

Be sure to visit the Captain’s Anchorage steakhouse, a local institution just down the road from the hotel. The restaurant is known for its prime rib, handcrafted cocktails, and resident “ghost,” George.
