Place I'm at is kinda lame. $12 to park...a couple bucks for a shitty throw away toothbrush...fine. I'm not gonna get mad. But the coffee situation is complete trash and the reason I won't stay here again. They give you an in room Kuereg which is great but stashed in between 2 $5 bottles of water that they force you to open in order to make the coffee. But what set me over the edge is that they give you three k cups...1 is regular and 2 are decaf. They now full well that no one's drinking fucking decaf so you're forced to purchase more regular. WJW. 1 star review incoming. OTH Shout out to the Comfort Inn in Flagstaff which is awesome.... unlimited coffee, full breakfast, fireplace, ski lodge feel, clean rooms, comfortable beds and friendly peeps.

I'll finish up the thread on a positive note...despite the fact that I need to walk a few blocks to DD for coffee now. Anyway...

Great time out here. I'd highly recommend Flagstaff for any PASR interested in skiing Arizona Snowbowl and seeing that giant canyon thing right up the road as well (everyone should see it once right? Or 50000x...it never gets old). Speaking of, you can see the GC from the top of Snowbowl which I thought was a wives tale. As for the skiing, snowbowl is great. It's not as big as the big dawgs further north but damn...what's there is really fun. I really want to ski the stuff up in the bowl when it's open...but even without it, it's great. Nice steeps, a ton of gladed terrain, cruisers, great snow (western groomers etc)...you name it. It's also a straight vert type of mountain.  Grab your 2500 or whatever with every run as opposed to pod skiing bullshit which I'm not a fan of...which means, yes, I prefer Arizona Snowbowl to Steamboat (F you Ski magazine). Like the terminator....I'll be back, probably next year and I can't wait! Probably skip the GC and do 3 ski days next time. Either way your in heaven so all good.

What hotel is it? Is there coffee in the lobby?  What time is your flight back to Nork or are you flying into Allentown?

More like flying back to Nork and being driven back to A-town.

Sounds like a great trip. I was really intrigued with Az Snowbowl last time we were there. It was late April, still snow on the ground, but they were closed. Did you stay right in Flagstaff? I don’t remember any hotels at Snowbowl, but I saw very little of it.

Yes stayed in flag. There is a motel at the bottom of the access road called base camp. I stayed there before in the summer when it was called ski lift lodge but snowbowl purchased it and renovated it. Probably worth staying in Flagstaff though as there's so much to do and a million different places to eat.

Edit...night at the grand canyon was at the masiwik Lodge on the rim

WJW, that's a lot of unexpected complaining from you about coffee. It sounds like I wrote this! On trips I rarely drink the in room coffee, I just go out and buy some. In fact this year I think I'll bring my own coffee machine and just make my own. Funk using their $5 water bottles, just go buy a gallon of quality H2O from the 99 cent store.

I have to agree with you although when you’re on vacation splurge a little and enjoy the in room Fiji water.

Nice try Salty but no. There's a time and a place to complain. A hotel messing around with coffee in the morning is one of them. Complaining about the course of natural events however like, for example, the weather, isn't

^ agree!  In room coffee is sacred. I am way too cheap to buy a $5 bottle of water though. I am a tap water gal wherever I go. *Except for Hawaii now I guess. My son tells me the military’s fuel tanks are leaking into the water supply (and have been for years). I I will have to break down and do bottled water if I go visit him. 
 

glad you had such a good time in AZ. Nice to see you so happy, I know that’s your favorite place.

That’s actually something you and Salty have in common is you’re both coffee drinkers.  I’m an occasional coffee drinker and never made in room coffee and never had the free coffee at the hotel house and I’m 1500 nights into my stay.

I buy $2 bottles of water at mini markets but I prefer $3 cases of bottled water from Target and I like tap water if it’s good tap water.  The allentown tap water isn’t good.

Flight to Allentown delayed 2 hours. I was actually supposed to leave Phoenix at 6am and be home by 230 or whatever but that was moved to 10am with this 3 hour layover weeks ago. Now.... it's another 2 hours on top of the 3 hour layover. @saltyant  Can you teach me the art of complaining? What can I get for free for my troubles.

I got a $100 gift card from American Airlines when I lost a full day of my trip due to their lack of care for their most special valued customer (me).

Reach out to customer service and make it known that you're not happy and lucrative gift card rewards might be in your future.
