Not worth the price I paid. No air conditioning and uncomfortable beds. There was a puddle of water on the bathroom floor when I first arrive. Should be only half the price I paid.

Look elsewhere, please!

Pros: The distance to the Gondola, that's it!!!
Cons: Everything needs improvement, lots of it.
Location: Snow boarding, shopping.
The heater makes noise all night long, even when I tuned it off, AND I came home with 28 Bedbugs bite on my body......nuff said!!!

Don't stay here

Location: Great location near lift and casino.
Heat did not work during the night. Ran the shower on hot and the hair dryer in the morning to warm up. Guess it beat sleeping in the car but not by much. Mentioned that the sink drain was slow and instead of saying thank you for the information was told some BS.
