5 min walk to the slopes. The place was a tad run down and needs some renovations. The photographs of the rooms and amenities were a bit deceiving. Most staff was a bit off-putting and didn't seem very friendly. They mentioned recycling but had no bin or bag in our room under the sink like they mentioned. None of the information was very clear as to where to wait for the shuttle, where certain amenities were, etc. You would think the front desk would do a quick briefing on the map and amenities while you checked in but they did not.
Ski in/out was the best ever. Run their own shuttle. Have local free ski storage. Nice staff. Probably some of the best pizza in Breck at the deli shop on Copper Top 2. And one of the best values for saving money on food. Expected, but the parking garage is an additional $10 a day. The internet was 0.25 mbs, which is terrible for a young couple who typically stream movies during the evening. We couldn't even browse facebook is was so slow.
Ski in, ski out convenience. choice of dining options. Free equipment locker. Free shuttle into downtown. Decent pool and hot tub facilities. Super expensive for holiday weekend. Rooms outdated. Food overpriced.
the location simply cant be beat. we grabbed our gear and walked about 300ft to the chair lift, strapped in, and we were off and running. obscenely expensive considering the facilities. the entire building is stuck in the 70's and 80's. needs a remodel badly! awful furniture. beds/mattresses were uncomfortable and lumpy. poor shower pressure. toilets and sinks all clogged multiple times during our stay. no mini bar. the living room had blinds from the 80s that didnt even keep light out, so it was extremely bright first thing in the morning. patio had snow built up on it when we checked in, called maintenance to fix it, never happened. the cleaning staff literally does not speak 1 word of english. not even 1 word, like hello. nothing. paid $1500/night for a 2 bedroom suite during long weekend, not worth even 1/3 of that. only 1 elevator servicing each building frrom the A-Lobby. huge lines of people waiting for elevators following the ski day. extremely slow and inefficient.
It has nice amenities. Pools and hot tubs were nice. Unfortunately the lady who checked us in was very rude. We were the only ones checking in and she could not be bothered. The buildings look run down and older. The worst thing was that the interior was dirty. Lots of stains on hallway carpet and in the room. Looks like they aren't cleaned regularly. We were disappointed with the facilities for the price.
We stayed in the 4th building on the 8th floor over-looking the valley in a studio. It was a great view! It took us a little longer to get our room and they didn't have the room that we originally booked so they upgraded us. ( we were skiing so there was no rush to get into our room) The staff was friendly and the shuttle was very quick. The rooms were cozy and I loved having a balcony and little kitchen area. It also had a great big bathtub in its own room which was a little strange but it was nice after a long day of skiing. It was so quiet! The last place we stayed at we could hear everything but it was so peaceful and quiet, we had a great night sleep in our comfy bed! The parking was a little tricky and navigating around the actual resort was a little strange and hard to get around. The room was a little dated but it was cozy. There wasn't a fireplace but the thermostat worked well and it didn't get too stuffy or hot. The bathtub room was very 80s but it was actually really nice and very much needed after a long day.
Location was great. Just blocks from downtown. Shuttle service was very handy. Easy access to lifts and slopes, just out the back door. Staff at hotel were very nice and equipment rental folks were helpful. There for two days and longer would have been even better and will stay with them again. Met all our expectations. No unpleasant issues.
most confusing hotel set up - got lost getting from the parking garage to our hotel after the first 3 lots we were directed to were full the shower in the middle of the room was a bit odd and uncomfortable we were woken up Saturday morning by a cement truck nothing special that would make me want to come back here - all just okay
Great ski instructor, took two lessons. Very good teacher Need better early breakfast food service
Room smelled bad. Too much noise from people/room above us - all night we could not sleep.
The rooms are always nice and the hot tubs are great! Our room was either too hot or too cold and the bed was pretty lumpy and uncomfortable. Probably not the best bed I've ever slept in.
You can step out and be on the Peak 9 lifts in minutes. You are 5-10 min walk to Main St/Park which has lots of nice places. In addition, theres a free shuttle to town, which we used to go to an amazing restaurant and then called and were picked up within minutes! The suite interior was nice, with a fireplace and everything we needed to cook There is a 1970's vibe going on in the lodge I didn't expect to be an annoyance to me...but being just an average skier, and with the price of a 1bd suite approaching Four Seasons prices, I really expected a lot more.
Short walk to the snowflake lift. They let me park in the lot before and after checkout so I didn't have to pay Breck prices to park. Got to enjoy the April storm all weekend! Great stay, super friendly folks at the front desk. You have to take out your trash at the end of your stay, but the dumpster is super close by.
I liked the privacy and comfort of the apartment. It was clean, well stocked, and ideal for a long weekend getaway. Our room faced the parking lot so sometimes you could hear people out of our window.
Unit was very spacious. It was nice to have separate bedrooms, bathrooms and a kitchen. Older fixtures and furniture in unit.
Great location for summer or winter at Brek! Near the river walk and main st. Just around the corner from the peak 9 base.
We walked, hiked, rested and cooked great meals. The kitchen had more than enough tools to prepare great meals, The bed was amazing! The furnishings were very comfortable. The fireplace wasn't working so we called and maintenance came within the hour and it worked perfectly. All around awesome stay! We had to go home.
The condo was great, clean and roomy. It was a close walk to everywhere. The early check out time at 10am, other than that. It's a great place.
Booking and arrangements were great and the staff were very helpful and prompt. Walking up five flights of stairs, but it got easier each day!
Free bus to lifts stops on property, ski right down to the condo.
The size of the condo and everything that was in the condo for our use. The location was great only a block from Main Street. Bed was very comfortable. Having to walk up the stairs.
Location was great. Spacious 48 steps up was the sacrifice. Comforters needed to be updated also the sheets.
walk out access to slopes, hot tub time machine, easy stroll into town- watch out for ice downhill. skis kept being lost due to room sticker falling off, but were quickly found. skis not allowed in room, which could have prevented this but oh well
If you stay at the 7th floor and up, you need to take a long walk to the elevator, take it up to the 6th floor, walk again to the other side of the hotel, take a second elevator to your floor and walk again to your room. I don't consider such a journey to my room as "luxury".
Being charged multiple times for someone else's room, seems they don't like you booking through anyone but them directly
Nothing. They had weird rules. It was at a ski resort but I was not allowed to have my skis in my room? LAME.
Loved the location and the room The room service was very basic. My wife and I did not enjoy the food and the ordering process
The rooms were nice quality, beds were comfy by hotel standards, and it was a good location with good views. With only a couple of exceptions, most of the staff was rude and didn't seem to really care about their guests.
Proximity to slopes, ski valet to slopes, shuttle service to Main Street Breckenridge. Overall standard hotel. great price for location. Room was a little warm even with the heat turned down. Slight buzzing/rattle sound from one of the ceiling sprinklers. Breakfast buffet was overpriced at $25 and the coffee/snack bar was also very expensive.
This hotel isn't on the mountain but they make up for it with a free shuttle that they run from 8am until 12 midnight. Is all you have to do is walk to the lobby and tell them where you wanna go and they'll take you anywhere. When you're done just use the number the driver gives you and he'll pick you up. We checked out before we went skiing and they had no problem letting us leave our car and taking us to and from the mountain. They also have an awesome restaurant downstairs that should definitely be checked out if you stay there. The room was really cool. You can tell the hotel has old bones, but it has modern upgrades which make it really enjoyable. Beds were great, balcony was awesome to drink a cup of coffee on and watch the sunrise. Really cool hotel and probably the best value in Breck. I wish the breakfast was better. They had cereal, yogurt and a waffle maker. For a day that I'm going to be on the mountain all day I would like to have some hot food, at least scrambled eggs and some meat.
The views No A/C, but its wasn't a dealbreaker
Everything was awesome. Although off the beaten path of the village it's worth it. The free shuttle to town and the mountain was very helpful. The gps directions don't work because of the vertical gain/switch backs. Signage Could be better. A very minor issue compared to what you get.
The staff was extremely friendly, but there needed to be more of them! The front desk never answered the phone, because they were either taking bags to rooms or running other errands for guests. Old style charm. Loved being out of busy town, with easy shuttle access when needed. Paid for a large room w/mountain view, got a small room w/ just an OK view. Lots of rooms have great rooms, I just wasn't given one of them. Since I paid for it, I felt I should have received a discount since I didn't receive one. When checking out another couple was given opportunity to select a room, wish they would have given me that opportunity. Restaurant needs a lot of work! Slow, slow, slow, and mediocre.
We had two families staying in the 2 bedroom condos. Both were comfortable clean and perfect for what we needed for summer week's stay. Staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. Room was cleaned daily. The location in Breck is excellent for getting to Main Street, about 3-4 blocks away. Also, 2 blocks from the grocery store, and one block from the Peak 8 Gondola. Appears to be a ski-in location during the winter. Free shuttle will pick you up around town. We didn't move our car while we were there because we could either walk through town and back or take the shuttle. The only cons are minor: $20 'resort fee' per day adds up, limited covered parking (in the Winter), I would prefer nicer kitchen utensils, and small TV in our rooms (other condo had flat screens).
We went there on our Spring Break from March 9th through the 19, 2012. It was like having our own private chalet. the staff was extremely friendly and provided all kinds of insight on where to eat and where to hike. We look forward to skiing there again.
We loved our stay at Mountain Thunder. The condo was lovely and spacious, and we particularly enjoyed the daily maid service and shuttle to EVERYTHING in town. You could literally park in the underground garage and never move your car during the entire stay. Front desk personnel were extremely helpful and the ski locker-included-in-stay was so convenient. Excellent location at base of Peak 8 with a ski-in feature that was great for the last run of the day. We'll definitely be going back to Mountain Thunder!
Great place. Comfortable, easy walk to town. Across the street from gondola for winter skiing. Newer and well kept.
Ski in / out. The lodge is minutes away from the city lift and convenient to resturants and nightspots. Parking is underground. Staff is very professional and helpful
The Mountain Thunder Lodge is a terrific place to stay for skiiers. It is a short walk to the gondola which accesses several ski mountains. Best of all, one can ski directly to the Lodge at the end of the day. And at the end of the day, the outside hot tubs were fantastic. Service was terrific. The staff was always very courteous and diligent. Their vans will shuttle you anywhere in town, so conveniently. I normally don't tip at hotels but left a generous tip for the cleaning person because our condo was always so well attended to. When we ski again at Breckenridge, we will definitely stay there. It is first-class!
I visited in August with my family and this hotel was a great value at that time of year! The nightly rate for a 2BR condo was comparable to a regular hotel room. The room was beautifully decorated, modern/rustic with large rooms and a full kitchen. The beds were very comfortable with nice linens. There were three hot tubs and an outdoor swimming pool, gas BBQ grills and beautiful landscaping around the property. There was no air conditioning, but with daily high temps of 70 degrees, this wasn't an issue. There is a laundry room on each floor with free washer/dryer use. Maid service comes every day, which was a nice surprise at a condo. Hotel staff is super friendly and helpful. It's a walk of a block to the Breck-Connect gondola and a block to get to Main Street. Can't say enough positive things about this hotel.
My family stayed in one of the townhomes in August 2007 and had a positive experience. The townhomes are privately owned and are in a booking pool through the hotels. The townhome had two bedrooms, fireplace, two bathrooms, complete kitchen and livingroom/dining room area, and garage. The accomofations were clean and very comfortable. There is also a patio backing up to a wooded area. The hotel has a lovely pool area with ahot tub. The hotel is about a 2 block walk to town but while you are on the grounds you feel very secluded. The only negative point, if there was one, is the side where are townhome was located is below a road leading up to the mountain, which made it a litte noisy at night. We are considering retruning in July 2009.
Beautiful place. We were on our own and really had no need of staff other than housekeeping. Good value and great location and ease of access to Breckenridge shopping and dining. It would have been nicer to have a more comfortable bed and sheets; which were like sleeping on paper on a hospital table. Did not like that we did not have a method of controlling temperature in the room; thus having to leave the windows open at night made for a very noisy night being right against a major road and bus depot. (air conditioning would have been nice; even though it is chilling most evening; it was not during our stay) So a nights rest was not something we were able to obtain. If we had been planning an extended stay; we would have only needed to supply food. All ammenties in the full kitchen were there. Even the corkscrew for a bottle of wine to be shared on the balcony.
Quick check-in, hot tubs, pool, location Noise. Had a baby with us and the way the halls are designed put a door for another room by our wall. No room service. Forced valet parking.
Right at the base of the mountain. Great lift access!
This is an older hotel that has been updated, but not recently. The decor looks to be about ten years old. But it was clean and had new linens. The location of the hotel is second to none. It is an easy one minute walk to the base of Peak 9, and a three minute walk to Main Street's shops and restaurants. Additionally, there is a shuttle stop just outside the front door. The bathrooms are very small. So small, that you must step into the bathtub or squeeze into the six inches next to the toilet in order to close the bathroom door. Additionally, the entire hotel runs out of hot water during what the hotel's engineer called the "shower hour", which was around 4-5pm when many skiers came back to the hotel after a day of skiing.
One Ski HIll Place - Rock Resort is 'out of this world'...the accomodations were superb. Kitchen was fully equipped, right down to a wisk. The staff was friendly; remembered our names; helped us with all of our gear, etc. One of the best features of the resort is where it is located: right at the peak. No hassle getting to and from the mountain. We loved it!
We loved the place. Staff was great, location could not be beat. Our kids had a wonderful time at the Fun Park right outside our door!
Everything was great. Kids and our family really had a good time. All of the staff we came in contact with were good. On a couple of occasions I went looing for the luggage carrier and none were available.
Location was great right by the city center. Everyone was incredibly friendly as well. I found the valet service to be incredibly frustrating and really wish it was optional rather than required. We would have to wait up to 20 minutes until vehicle which included trying to find someone to get the vehicle.
Good proximity to town center. Easy walking distance to retail. Beware of hidden fees that aren't included with your booking. They hit me with a resort fee separately from the included fees paid with the booking to cover this. No A/C in the room of a south and west facing unit. Got extremely warm in the afternoon sun.
Perfect home away from home! Clean and cozy studio apparat meant.
Location was great, accommodations were great & staff were great. Nowhere on my reservation did it mention another $29 to be collected at hotel. May need to reconsider staying again if there are hidden fees not documented when reserving a room online.
I was billed an additional $60 for my two day stay that was not included in the price I paid thru Kayak.
Staff was friendly and facilities were well maintained. No complaints.
Great location, friendly staff. I have stayed here a few times and even with the few minor drawbacks I would recommend the resort to others. They do charge an extra fee when you get there which is not disclosed when purchasing via Kayak. They require you to valet your vehicle since it is a private garage which could add to your time to come and go. For me that was not a problem since I was able to walk almost everywhere I wanted to go. I stayed in the summer and the room I was given was quite warm since there was no A/C but I just opened a window and it cooled off. Since this hotel is primarily occupied in the winter for ski season I guess that isn't a high priority.
Mini kitchen is awsome. Full oven/range plus microwave and fridge. Love it. Had to change rooms in middle of stay because "owner" had come in last minute. Annoying at worst, staff completely moved us while we were at lunch and took care of the worst of it. Got a bottle of wine out of the inconvenience. Worst part is that latest allowed check out is 12 noon, while you can only ever be guaranteed a 4pm check in. How is that possible when hotels like Hampton, Hilton, Marriott, etc., have their act together much better?
The staff was very friendly, hotel/room clean, and the view was awesome (we had moose and deer walk by the our window daily). Location was perfect for walking to town for shopping and dinning. The parking was a little odd, having to walk to another facility to park. But a minor inconvenience.
Construction required walking through basement parking deck to leave condo unit. Also, was expecting "villa" to be a standalone building on the ground level but it was instead a 1-bedroom condo/hotel room.

Staff was very friendly and helpful Proximity to the main highway caused some road noise. The shower water pressure was very weak.
pleasant, Inn-like with motel type rooms. good value no
Great location, great family swimming pools and room ,great place to stay

Excellent location less than a mile to downtown breck Ran out of hot water when it was -10 outside.
Totally remodeled, nice colors and furniture. Price and friendly staff it is not hotel's fault - the location. A bit remote.
Price was reasonable. Not aloud to smoke on your balcony, outside. Appears people live at this hotel.
Very clean (and I'm very picky). The staff was very nice and laid back. It was a nice location too. Snacks all day all. The room was a little crowded. We only spent one night due to our schedule, but had it been a longer stay the room size may have been more of an issue.
Very clean friendly staff and good location. Our room door was left open by the cleaning staff until we got back that evening luckily nothing missing.
Nice common area. Very clean and the manager very accommodating.
Location: walking distance (5min) to Quicksilver chairlift and directly at Main street with shops and restaurants. Free shuttle service to everywhere in town; free DVD rentals. Studios are big engough for 2 people, nice large bathroom No daily roomservice; amenities, towels, coffee has been asked for (but then you get it immediately); fitness center on side but not in the best "condition" and nobody who takes care during training hours, So people walk around and train in normal boots. Alos an disadvantage: people have to walk through the fitness to use the outdoor hot tubes (so carpet gets wet..); missed a bar to meet people after skiing.
Cannot think of any thing that I really liked Was given rediculous direction to our room from the front desk.
Was not happy that the check in clerk ran my debit card for $100 without first asking my permission.
Perfect ski condos. Location and amenities are ideal for a family ski property. Walking distance to main street, lifts, restaurants etc. Well maintained facilities. Have to go outside or wak through parking garage to get to front desk, fitness facility, hot tubs, etc. No big deal. Just would be nice to have some sort of connection.
Great location, easy access to Main Street shopping and dining. Very nice pool/hot tub facilities with a view of the small lake. Clean rooms and nice having a kitchen and dining area. The bed was SO small, not really even a queen and it was extremely uncomfortable. 4 pm check in time is too late in my opinoin. 3 is bad enough!
Location A bit noisey from neighboring sallons at night.
Location View Price Fire Place/Kitchen
This is right on Main Street and could not have a better location Cold water shower on the second day with no compensation. This is something I have only experienced on the edge of civilization in third world countries. Terrible. Staff was using the elevator to move supplies between floors at the stated check-out time and would not let us on. Very poor supervision by maintenance services management.
The place is clean, internet worked well, had kitchen (with utensils etc.). DVD player with some decent movies was welcoming. A little far from the main street (~5 blocks) and making multiple trips a day (b'fast, lunch, dinner etc.) tires you. The door locks were dated and it required effort to open (and felt i might break the key!:)). they should go to the electronic key.
The location. Our bed was horrible. Outside hot tubs were small and the Jets didn't work on one of them. Our shower leaked on the floor and the sink in the bathroom was all chipped up. The decor was very dated. Carpet looked stained. The free DVD machine didn't work.
The location. The tiny room was incredibly hot in the summer. The staff was unfriendly and unaccomodating. Parking was a hassle, and the decor was dated and musty.
Gym under repair. Windows wouldn't open, no fan and no wipes to clean machines.
Very comfortable and well appointed room. Slightly dated but in a nice way. Big comfortable chairs and fantastic older style well provided kitchen. Car Park entrance is tight, but ok once you get used to it!
Room wasn't ready at 930pm when we were trying to check in with our child. Check out time is noon so there is plenty of time to get it cleaned. There were several other people whose rooms were also not ready at that time.
The location was great! A very short walk to the quaint downtown for shopping and eating. Close to the 4 o clock run and shuttle for the slopes. Beds were comfortable. Room was small for two beds, not much room to spread out or unpack. A little noisy at times. Hot tubs were crowded.
Very large bathroom, especially considering it was an efficiency Dining area was too small
