This is by far the worst place i ever stayed. Never again!!!!!!!!!! Consider yourself warned, it is pathetic!! First room the minute i walked in I thought seriously this is $250/night....yuck!!!! Looked like an old condo from the 1980's and the heater didn't work. The engineer came to the room and took 30 minutes, and he was such a great... More

I have had a season pass here for 3 years. Every employee from the ticket office, lift line staff, janitors, lodge servers, retail staff know how to treat the guests. I wish whoever trains them can train everyone, everywhere in customer service! Facilities are clean and well maintained.

We are so dispointed about Northstar hotel style room at all. Firstly, we booked one bed only, but they gave us two beds. The problem is there was no space for our laugages and ski equipment. Then, we called the front desk to complain their mistake, they just said that there is no room wiv one bed still avaliable. They... More

We stayed in a three-bedroom, two-bath condo as a large family at one of the Mountain Condos at Northstar during Christmas week. Given how expensive it was to stay in Northstar at this time of year, we decided to give the Mountain Condos a try because it was simply more affordable for the space we needed and had more availability....

We rented one of the homes at Northstar and the home fit us well. The reason I'm only giving three stars though is there were many minor issues, nothing major but the culmination of many minor issues became annoying. The shuttle service is great and fast and helps as parking is very difficult here. As with most resorts everything is... More

Stayed in Ironhorse south overlooking the ski slopes. Two bed condo beautifully finished , large rooms and bathrooms. Best condo in the area , esp compared to Squaw resort. Village is nice , same as Beaver Creek, well planned and easy access to lifts. Great family resort.

The condo was very clean, modern, great location, we just wish we had more time to stay and enjoy it. The property manager was very easy to work with as well. Would def rent this property again. You have access to the pool and spa area as well, which is great - kinda wish we discovered that on day 1!... More

As others have noted, condos are privately owned. We stayed in a 2-story, 2Bd & 1.5 Bth, 2 balcony condo in Aspen Grove. The condo was updated, clean & comfy, with just about everything we needed for a short 2-night stay. Days were in mid 70s with chilly nights, so the extra comforters on the beds came in handy. We made... More

This is a winter ski resort. Custom made with designer shops. We visited in the height of summer. A lot of the shops were shut and the ski lifts were out of action (unlike Mammoth Lakes with the mountain biking). Our stay included a Tuesday night when they have a fantastic 80's retro roller skating party on the ice rink.... More
