Stayed here for a quick skiing overnight trip. I agree with other reviewers that it is scrupulously clean and it is across the street and around the corner from the gondola, but I don't think it provides value for the money compared to similarly priced places equally close by. The biggest issue was how noisy and old and run down it is; I don't mind noise of people in the parking lot or passing by or even talking in other rooms. This is different: every time someone takes a step in the room above you it sounds like the entire building is following down - sort of like a crunching, shifting noise. Stuff is old and broken: my tv had a broken display and a broken remote. They nickel and dime you in annoying ways: it costs an extra $20 to check in before 3pm even if your room is ready, and the fridge is unplugged so if you bring food you have to wait till it cools down. And the breakfast is pathetic - they don't even have milk for the coffee (you use the cereal milk, and there's only full fat.) If it were significantly cheaper than other places, it would be fine - but it's the same as much nicer places.
