Tyndall Stone Lodge- Unit 218
Booked through Whistler.com / Whistler Superior Properties
"Stay and Ski Package-Book Early and Save" package

Our trip was 4 single guys up for President's weekend, 3 day ski, 4 nights, and we could not have asked for a better deal. Booked through Whistler.com's special early package, you get the condo and lift tickets at a nice discount. The location of Tyndall is great, especially for the price we paid. We could get up, eat breakfast, and walk out the door to a quick 10 minute walk to the lift.

The condo itself is not glamorous but it is just fine. Two rooms, two bathrooms, all clean. We had a queen or king bed, I don't recall, and two doubles, and a guy slept on the queen rollout couch bed. The porch is big so you can throw your wet ski gear out there to dry over night. The unit has a fake fireplace/heater that works well. The kitchen was nice and clean and had all the utensils and items we needed to make meals to save money.

The complex had a small jacuzzi and pool, and downstairs parking with gear locker.

Our unit was right near the Von's or whatever major chain grocery store, so we could run over to get food, as well as the local liquor store for beer. Plenty of other coffee shops and pizza joints right out front as well.

All in all a great location, great unit, great experience and nothing went wrong or awry. I recommend both the Tyndall units and the whistler.com booking experience.

We just booked again for Feb 2012, but unfortunately Tyndall was not available so we are going to test the Glaciers Reach unit, which I will review in a few months!

We spent a week at Tyndall Stone Lodge in the Lower Village in Whister in late June 2011 compliments of a relatives who couldn’t use their week this year . It was our first time staying in Whistler, and overall it was a very enjoyable family week.

Check-in went very smoothly for us. The people doing the check-in and out were pleasant and helpful. Our assigned underground parking stall, like others in the parking garage, was very small. The parking is secure (key access needed to get to the parking area).

Our two-bedroom unit (#213) overlooked the Village Stroll and 2010 Olympic area and we could see the Olympic and Paralympic rings, Olympic cauldron, medal stage, etc. There is a really nice looking new children’s play area that was being completed while we were there. It is very close to the hospital as well. It is at the quieter end of the Village Stroll – which can be a positive or a negative thing, depending on how much night life you like. It is close to David’s Tea and Starbucks, along with several other shops.

It is apparent that most items in the condo unit had been upgraded over the years although the cabinetry had not been upgraded and was very, very worn (gouges, pieces of countertop missing) as well as dated-looking. Some of the floor tiles in the kitchen were loose. Overall, the condo was fairly clean although not “to the corners” clean, especially in the bathrooms. Other general comments about the amenities are as follow: There was no cutting board to use in the kitchen. There was a clock-radio in only one of the two bedrooms. The fans came in handy (one in each bedroom) as the portable air conditioning unit was located in the living area and did not keep the entire condo cool enough during warm summer weather. The bedrooms are quite small, and there are no dressers or any furniture for clothing; however, there is wire shelving (one long upper shelf and a vertical row of smaller shelves) inside the bedroom closets. The walls, floors, and windows are not at all soundproof, so we heard a lot of noise during our stay. There is a phone number (info is in the condo) to call if there is excessive, late hour noise (but we didn’t see it until the next day after what sounded like an all night relay race in the hallway above us so we didn’t use the number so cannot comment on its effectiveness). A major inconvenience in the kitchen is that there is no place to hang a hand towel near the sink nor a place to hang tea towels; there are no hooks, rods, etc. and the stove didn’t have a handle that allows towels to hang from. Similarly, the bathrooms have no place by the sinks to hang a hand towel. There was a good supply of towels for the three of us. The info in the condo says number of towels are stocked for the maximum number of occupants and if more towels are needed, there is a $25 charge. The deck off the living area was on the small side and had two plastic chairs and a small table; it was adequate in size to sit or stand on while having a morning coffee.

A “welcome basket” contained a single package of ground coffee, four tea bags, and a single use box of Tide laundry detergent. There were four or five dishwasher tablets for use for the week (which was fine as we didn’t use the dishwasher every day). Coffee filters are provided. The only condiments supplied are salt and pepper. There is a good selection of kitchen appliances and utensils (but no cutting board as previously mentioned).

We encountered an issue with getting wireless Internet access. The password is on the router in each room but the one on the router in our condo had partially worn away so it was not legible enough even with guessing some of the missing numbers. Since it was evening, we had to wait until the next day to call to get the password. Hopefully this has been rectified to avoid future inconveniences. The information about Internet access in the book in the condo unit is outdated as it refers to wired access.

All-in-all, despite it being an older building, with its good location and fairly good amenities in the suite, we were satisfied with our stay and would stay there again. Since relatives lent us their week, we did not have to pay to stay there, but I have tried to be as unbiased as possible in this review.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the Village Stroll (instead of the street) are probably a bit noisier but the...

I will never stay here again -- or any ResortQuest Whistler property for that matter --
despite the free night we were offered as compensation for all the problems we encountered.

1. The check in desk was in the Upper Village at The Aspens condos. Super inconvenient if you need asssitance of any kind.

2. There is no air conditioning. Rooms are hot and stuffy in the summer with only one window and a sliding glass door. Fail.

2. We reserved a King Size bed but when we checked in, we were told there were no King Size beds. Fail.

3. Reception could not assist us in cancelling the reservation since we’d booked it through a third party (which I’ll never do again -- lesson learned).

4. The mattresses on the queen and sofabed were horrible. Like, wake-up-with-a-stiff-neck-aching-back-all-day horrible. Fail.

5. We were in a 2nd floor room right above the hot tub – so we had to listen to a party going on at the pool until it closed at 10 p.m. (this despite having to sign an agreement not to make noise). And of course we couldn't close the windows cause it was so hot in the room. Fail.

6. The final straw: Our reservation listed 11 a.m. as the check out time. We came back after breakfast and were locked out of out room (digital key pad). We called the reception desk four times and no answer so we had our to drive over to The Aspens condos (luckily we had our car keys on us) to get a new code which did not work when we got back to the room. So they had to send a maintenance person to let us in. This all took about an hour. Total fail.

I can live with a few things going wrong but when it is one thing after another, it really is a buzz kill for your vacation. So that's why I don't recommend staying here. We had previously stayed at the Whistler Delta Suites in June 2011 and had such a nice experience. I'd pay the extra money next time as insurance for having a nice vacation.

Room Tip: Rooms 206 and 207 are right over the hottub and pool so can be noisiest. No King Size beds. No A/C.

We were originally impressed with the room and hotel. It was centrally located and the apartment was well equipped and clean. The check out time was too early at 10am and they were quite strict with it - a charge of $100 if we're even a little bit late. We found it quite noisy and you can hear people talking from the next room over - and they weren't even shouting! Plus we were charged a noise fee after receiving one warning (but weren't warned that we'd be charged after one complaint). So that left a bitter taste in our mouths.

Tyndall Stone Lodge is a convenient location to the lift and the village. The kitchen is great for making meals. However, I wouldn’t recommend this place because of Whisky Jack Resort’s poor customer service. Once you arrive at their front desk, they ask you to sign a contract which state that you will be charge for any noise violation. They will not give you any warning.

They charged my credit card $336.00. We did not have any music or TV on the background. We had just arrived and were having dinner at 10:20 p.m. Whisky Jack Resort’s manager labeled me guilty even though the noise we made was daily living noise. Arguing your case with Whisky Jack Resort manager is difficult, but if this happened to you, make sure you have plenty of time to write letters and consult BC Strata Property Regulation. Whisky Jack Resort does not know how to treat their customers and for that reason you should not stay here. There are plenty of choices in Whistler.

Tyndall is well located and within a short walk of the lifts at Whistler. We had an extended stay here and managed to get a good rate by negotiating with the property manager who was in contact with the individual owner. All the units here are individually owned and I think there are many ways to book here.
It was extremely convenient being so close to a large grocery store and the liquor store. The building is right on the Village stroll so it is mostly pedestrian traffic.
It can be noisy on the weekends with people let loose from the bars after 2am. Our unit faced the street so we were awakened by snow removal every morning but I guess that's not a bad wake-up call to get yourself onto the hill.
The bed in our unit was poor quality but adequate enough. I'm sure the interiors of each unit vary depending on the owner.
Free dedicated wifi was nice although there is lots of open networks in the building.
Hot-tub and pool were nice but strange that it is right beside the street and people walking by can see you between the gaps of the screens.

My husband and my 10 year daughter and I were pleasantly surprised by this 2 bedroom condo -- a well laid out older unit nicely re-furbished. Our normal resorts are Westins and Marriotts but we love coming to Whistler once a year and use an older timeshare we have to find a place.

Bedrooms were small, one with a queen bed and the other with 2 twins, no room for dressers. Good sized closets that worked for us because they had some mobile metal basket units. Mattresses okay (not the Westin's heavenly bed by a long shot but not too bad on the back). Agree with other reviews on lack of storage space especially if 4 or more adults sharing the unit. 2 bathrooms, both nicely appointed with lots of towels. Living room furniture nice and well laid out. Flat screen TVs in living room and master bedroom. Nice sized balacony, better on the end units. Kitchen was well equiped though appliances were older. In-suite laundry definitely nice.

The only real draw back was the air conditioning --- an old portable that barely blew luke warm air and made so much noise it was hardly worth turning it on. Luckily it wasn't too warm and there were lots of fans so we were able to manage the temperature well even on the couple of days of 26 degree celsius weather.

No barbecue and the "swimming" pool is an oversized hot tub, good for the kids to dip in and nothing else. No chairs around it either -- probaby because there isn't room. We were happy with Alta Lake and the public pool.

Overall, for Whister and the cost of staying here, we were generally pleased. Location in the Village allowed us to basically park the car and bike or walk every where. Construction noise from across the street was a drawback especially if you are noise adverse.
