It was nicely furnished & well situated on the slopes. Ski storage was available & helpful. Hot tub had no active bubbling jets. Breakfast service was slow , inefficient due to poor organization. You could not get coffee or tea from an Urn that served multiple people. No silverware ready & organized. Oatmeal could be done in a crockpot as self serve. These inefficiencies often made breakfast cold to eat.

Clean and reasonable

Property is old and outdated from its classic years but it's clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast needs help. Loaded with sugar and carbs

Spring 2018 solo ski trip

Pros: Gondola and apres ski at Bear Creek Bar was steps away. Dump the skis and boots at hotel, switch into street shoes and walk a few steps to live music
Location: Extremely close to the Gondola which means the Apres ski at Bear Creek was steps away.
Ski in/out so close to gondola was ideal for me. Allowed for long ski days. Connected with bar staff for nightly dinner and drinks so I was not alone. Restaurant was reasonably priced with good food. Hotel is a bit rustic but the ski rental and storage right inside the door were very convenient. Storage and shower allowed me to ski the final day and freshen up before heading to the airport.

You get what you pay for!

I stayed one night at this hotel and the only nice thing I have to say is the location is fantastic. The property is dated and needs not only a facelift but major maintenance upgrades. My toilet ran all night and when I turned on the shower, water exploded everywhere and I was unable to bathe. Needless to say, I don't recommend this hotel!

Hard Bed-No sleep

Pros: Wasn't there long enough to find out. Actually the person at the front desk was apologetic and kind
Cons: upgrade to comfortable beds and fix up the rooms a little
Location: Steamboat Springs, CO---so much to do!!!!
The hotel appeared okay but when we slept on the bed the first and only night it was like sleeping on wood planks. They just didn't have anything else to offer so we had to leave.
