Holiday Valley - where to stay

My wife and I are looking at going to Holiday Valley the third weekend in February.

Looking at the HV site the cheapest room they have is over $250 per night.

Is there someone decent nearby that isn't over $200 per night?

The whole town has cheaper rooms if you look at the bed and breakfasts. The Jefferson Inn and the Edelweiss are super solid. That'll put you right in downtown walking distance to everything and a short drive out to the valley. Try this Bed & Breakfast | Ellicottville, NY Chamber of Commerce | Resource for activities surrounding skiing, snowboarding, golfing, biking, and more at Holiday Valley and HoliMont, Western New York State Ski Resorts

I have never stayed in a B&B before. I'll look into this one.

We plan on staying 2 nights, if that makes a difference.

It's like staying in a motel except with more down home feel and a WAY better breakfast.

Ya, most of the on mountain lodging is relatively new which makes it a tad expensive, especially at the Hotel right at the main base but it's awesome. There's lots of condos right off the hill though and plenty of B&Bs as mentioned. There's also a Comfort Inn I believe, if it's not that it's something close, I haven't been out there in like three years so I can't remember exactly what chain it was.

If you're going for absolute savings you could stay about 20 minutes away in Olean/Alleghany right across from St. Bonaventure's campus which is beautiful (And my Alma Mater Whoop Whoop) at any of the main chain Hotels for around $80 a night. Oh and make sure you ride Swiss Twist while there, it's hidden but a super fun run if you can find it. Spent four years going to college and teaching lessons out there, you'll have a great time.

I think we are going to book a Hotel since we are going for 2 nights.

Best Western University Inn - Olean, NY

OR

Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel - Salamanca, NY


Which would be the better option, or is there a better hotel we should be looking at?

Best Western is probably a little closer and in Olean so there's a town although Olean doesn't really have much, it basically only exists because of the college. I've stayed there multiple times though and it's a pretty easy drive to the hill (with the exception of Chapel Hill road which can get sketchy on snowy days, it's also a backway so you probably wouldn't take it anyway).

The casino obviously has the casino which is a plus and is much nicer but it is in the middle of nowhere. It's also a little further away than I'd prefer but might be worth the better accommodations and getting to stay at a casino.

If you're looking at Olean/Allegheny also look at the Microtel, It may be a tad cheaper than the Best Western and it's nice enough but you'd have to check rates. It's prices are based purely around event's going on at St. Bonaventure.

There really isn't many options for Ellicottville other than the Wyndham which is over $250 per night.

I think we are leaning towards the casino and can drive into town if we need for dinner, etc.

Ya, you'll enjoy the casino. And just eat before heading back for the night. Eville has a ton of cool places, especially EBC which is an awesome brewery. And while a tad expensive (although not that bad compared to most on mountain higher end restaurants) John Harvards right on the hill has some good food and a great tap selection. Also consider bringing things like a crockpot for lunch. At the base of Yodeler if i remember correctly there's a great public room you can leave food set up with a microwave and everything. Great for indoor picnics and saving some moolah on food.
