Granted the rooms are awful. They are like a bad revisitation to 1970, complete with cheap wood paneling and cheesy bedspreads. However, the location is so incredibly cool that it worked great for us in spite of this. In fact, the overall family ski-trip experience - the village amenities, the skiing itself, and the non-skiing activities - were the best I've experienced anywhere in the US.
We chose to stay in the Village itself in the 'Village Rooms', which are designated as hotel-style rooms. If you are able to, find out as much as you can about the specific room you will be assigned... 3rd level is best (first is shops, then there is a 2nd and 3rd level). We were on the 2nd and heard our inconsiderate upstairs neighbor all night. Alternatively, you could stay at the condos 1/4 mile away from the village, it seems that the rooms are nicer there and it would be quieter... Great ski-in-ski out access also, better than the Village Rooms. Only downside to condos is proximity to the Village.
