This hotel has an extraordinary location right at the base of Buttermilk. Especially during ski season and if you're skiing that mountain (which is great), it's just super convenient. We also like to be just outside of Aspen proper. But we were very surprised by the poor condition of the property, especially the common areas. It was just not clean -- we stayed for three nights and the hallways appeared to not be vacuumed that entire time (and they really needed it). There was an old TV that sat outside the side entrance during our entire stay, as well as trash in the stairwells. (and you need to use the stairs since there is no elevator.) The breakfast was kind of awful. Beyond the really meager food presentation, there was a stack of plates that just were not clean. We literally had to go 3 or 4 plates down to find one that didn't have food residue. On the plus side, the room was alright and was definitely cleaner than the common areas. There was a friendly shuttle driver to take you into downtown Aspen. Front desk staff were friendly (but not super-responsive: we asked a couple times for a "do not disturb" sign, as most rooms had, but never got one.) But overall we'd just give this place a grudging two stars (and that's mostly for the great location).
