“Summer Mountain Adventure”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Booked 7/5/2012 - 7/8/2012
Stayed at Marketplace in a "hotel" type room. Most likely the worst place we have ever stayed in during our travels to Whistler. The property is worn although it doesn't appear to be from the outside. Desk staff was friendly at check-in, however, that was the last I saw of them. Room was small, and not clean. Carpet had dark spots, worn in some areas, walls needed paint, lamp shade was not attached, light blubs burned out, heating vent covers missing, bathroom floor sticky, mattress on bed was way past it's life span. Only positive is the coffee shop was just below the units.

We have stayed in other hotels in the area and I would suggest although the price is inviting, remember you get what you pay for.

The condo I was in (#313) was quite satisfactory for the moderate price paid. The unit is in reasonable repair (except for the blinds) and it was quite clean. The check-in was across the street -- kitty corner (through Whistler Superior properties). The unit is a little far from the hill if walking in ski boots, but the free (winter-only) bus is frequent and has two nearby stops. (If you are walking to the hill, avoid the pedestrian mall -- there is a shorter route along Northlands). There are lots of restaurants and shops in the immediate area, including a large IGA food store. Some other points:

The kitchen is large and reasonably well stocked (although missing a kettle). There is a dishwasher, coffee maker, and microwave. The scissors are dull.
The door to the balcony does not seem to lock.
The place is big enough for one or two, but more would be a squeeze. The unit is the size of a decent-sized hotel room.
The bed folds down from the wall fairly easily -- but the mattress needs replacing (it's not terrible however).
Check out is at 10 am. I was able to store my bags at the check-in location on my last day -- but that office closed at 6 pm on Sunday (my transfer out was a little later, so I had to hang about at the McDonald's across the street with my two bags).
The heat in the unit tended to run a little high -- I had to fiddle with it about twice a day to get it comfortable. There is also a gas fireplace that works off a separate thermostat.
The garbage disposal area is located in the basement.
You get to the unit via an outside elevator right next to the Patagonia fly fishing store -- to get the elevator to work you have to insert a key and push the button at the same time. It's a little fiddly, but after a few tries you can work it more easily.
It was quiet - - you are far away from the noisier parts of the village.
There is good storage in the unit: a big, empty cupboard as well as a cupboard for ski, board, and boot storage just inside the door.

This was our second time to go to whistler village. I chose this place from whistler blackcomb website because of the location, lower prices, under ground parking(no extra fees), hot tub, and such. Reservation was made nice and smooth. We checked in nice and easy. Once we opened the door, first thing we saw was a broken closet door. A vent was falling off from the seiling in washroom and bath towels were hanged up nicely with somesome's hair. A wall in living room had a foot long crack. When we opened the fridge to put our stuff, it was not clean. Crumbs of cheese, some sort of liquid was spilled on e shelf, and kindly enough somebody left us a gravy sauce in ziplock container. Of course, housekeeper forgot their stuff on top of the fridge. I could easily see housekeeper didn't do a job. So, we called a operator to let them know to clean those up and inform about the damages. She told us to send someone to look after this immediately; however no one came for a half hour or so. We were hungry and wanted to go out for a dinner, so we called a operator again to let her knows that we will be out for a while but we need those things to get down before we come back from dinner. She said of course and promised that all will be ready. Of course, nothing was completed. At this property, housekeeping service is done in every 4 days. We were there for 3 nights, so nobody would come. Well, actually no one came while we were staying. I highly don't recommend this place if you are looking for clean place to stay. If you are young and tight in budget, this is the place to be considering of what they offer with lower price. Hot tub was warm tub. On site laundry was convenient. It was about 15 minutes of walk to the gondolas. I wouldn't go back there or recommend this place to our friends.

Definitely met our expectations as an affordable, clean, nice condo in the village with outdoor hottub. 10 min walk to the lifts (although you could take the shuttles to avoid the walk). No frills, but made for an excellent ski vacation. Right next to the grocery store and above a delicious crepe restaurant. Underground, connected parking was very convenient.
It seemed like most of the other units were filled with British or Australian young people working for the season, but we had no issues with noise and thought everyone was very friendly.

Would stay again on another trip to Whistler!

Staying there again for the Bbt wine festival --we combine business with a visit to our son.. Greatest view from the bar on top. Haven't eaten here since so many good restaurants around. Maybe we will change our minds this time

we stayed here thinking that by avoiding the bigger hotel we would be avoiding the tourist and therefore get to relax more. Boy were we wrong the room was basically clean but there was dust balls the size of tennis balls every where. There is no "front desk" so if you have a problem you are on your own. The location was great but also the biggest problem. Being situated above one of the few 24 hour stores (711) in Whistler the noise is horrible. Especially on our last night the clanging of the skateboards off the cement will haunt me for the rest of my life!! We thought we would wait it out but by 2AM there were no signs of it quieting down despite our please to the people on the street. Eventually I called the front desk about 4 times and there was never any answer so I had to call the police who were less then helpful. At check out the clerk couldn't have cared less about our concerns and never explained why no one answered the 24 hour front desk phone. There is no pool contrary to the pics and NO internet in the rooms, Market Pavilion is a good place if you wanna go party but no a great place if you want to relax stay in the Village the few extra bucks are totally worth the sleep you will get.
