“Absolutely delightful in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

There seems to be some controversy over whether or not this hotel is ski/in, ski/out. When you arrive the ski valet takes your equipment to a ski shop located in the hotel. The next morning when you are ready to go skiing, you go to the shop and put on your boots in nice warm comfort. You go out the back of the hotel, put your skis on your shoulder and walk about one hundred yards on a fairly flat snow packed path that is very easy to walk on in ski boots. Certainly, it is much preferred to getting on and off a bus in ski boots and walking across an icy parking lot in the same aforementioned ski boots! Now, you can get on your skis and have a short glide to the Strawberry Park lift. When you are ready to return to the hotel you can ski right up to the hotel gate. You might say the hotel is better described as walk out/ski in.
With that out of the way, we can concentrate on how delightful this hotel is. The rooms are very comfortable, even luxurious with mattresses about two feet thick. Bathrooms are well appointed. There is a mini-fridge in each room and Starbucks coffee ready in urns on your floor by 7:00 am each morning. If you want, you can take some breakfast items to the hotel with you and put them in the mini-fridge. Each afternoon about 3:00 pm cookies with tea and hot chocolate make an appearance in the lobby by the wood fire that is keep going at all times. The wood fire is especially nice after skiing or with coffee after dinner.
All that is fine but what really makes this hotel work is a very helpful, caring and gracious staff. That does not happen by accident. They have obviously been very well trained by someone.
Over the years I have not had a good relationship with RockResorts. I have not been to one in about ten years. The Pines Lodge was a wonderful experience over two ski trips so far this winter. We hope to be back to Pines Lodge a couple more times before the end of the season. RockResorts, all is forgiven!

I was in Denver for a Business trip and my husband decided to fly in last minute so we could ski for a weekend. I found The Pines Lodge on line last minute and so thrilled that we did. The staff was really helpful , the room was so cozy and very clean- had everything we needed on a very cold weekend including ski boot heaters. You can ski/walk to lift and ski almost all the way back to the door of hotel- it was great. The hotel is very pretty, Amazing Views and cozy!
We had a wonderful weekend , thank Pines Lodge

Excellent and Outstanding staff. Way beyond our expectations. Amazing views of the mountains and the lifts. Short walk to the village. The property was pristine and our accommodations was extremely clean. The in house restaurant "Grouse Mountain Grill " is outstanding . The staff made us feel like we were the only ones staying at the lodge. Anything we needed at any time they were happy to comply with. I highly recommend the Pines Lodge as this is our third stay and will be returning this year. I would like to THANK Mr. Macfarlane the lodge manager for his attentiveness and for making our stay a special one. You the best.

Room Tip: Choose unit 401 or 412

We stayed here February 1 and fell in love. The hotel is beautiful. The staff was amazing as well, very helpful front desk. We were able to rend our ski equipment onsite, and then ski right down to the lift. Very simple. The views were breathtaking as well. Would certainly recommend it! There wasn't a spa onsite, but a quick shuttle ride to one.

The Pines Lodge is an excellent mid-priced hotel in Beaver Creek. Its main strength is its exceptionally accommodating and friendly staff. From the front desk clerk to the restaurant's waiters and bartenders, we found the staff to be well above average in their attentiveness. The property was also very clean so credit needs to be given to the housekeeping staff as well.

I would describe the decor of this hotel as "Rocky Mountain Lodge," which is pretty typical for this area. It also has a small touch of Southwestern character. It is not ultra luxurious, but also not shabby. Pine is pervasive. It is used in the furniture, doors, moldings and even some of the walls. Mattress quality is average.

The location of the hotel is good, but not outstanding. It is not located at the Beaver Creek Village. To get to Beaver Creek Village, guests need to take a short, less than five minute, shuttle ride. Alternatively, you can walk about 300 yards down one of Beaver Creek's ski slopes to access the village. The slope is a traverse so it is mostly flat, but it is still a ski slope and can be slippery in areas. It also has no lights so walking on it at night is not really an option. This very same traverse provides ski in and ski out access to the Strawberry Park Express chairlift during the day.

The hotel has a small outdoor pool and hot tub. It also has a ski rental and tuning shop on property. There is no spa. There is one restaurant, The Grouse Mountain Grille. It has excellent food and a friendly staff. It served the best Colorado Elk I have ever tasted. There is one small bar in The Grouse Mountain Grille that seats about six.

In summary, the Pines Lodge is an excellent mid-priced hotel in Beaver Creek. I would stay there in the future. If you are looking for super-luxurious, you may want to look elsewhere, but expect to pay far more than the Pines Lodge's very good price point. For its price in Beaver Creek, it's pretty tough to beat.

Sink right into these relaxing rooms, cozy robes and top-rate service. There's nothing like coming back to a cup of hot cocoa at the end of the day and enjoying the efficiency of coffee service outside your door in the morning. No skimping here, you won't even want to leave the room but if you do, the gym and amenities have all the comforts of home and more.

Room Tip: You must try the lettuce wraps at the restaurant. Billed as an appetizer, but makes a great light di...

Great service and charming hotel - our room had a 180 degree view of the mountains- reminded us of skiing in Europe and European charm with painted doors and wooden window frames and a warm personal feel. Nice hot tub for apres. Great location - with easy ski-in and out access and close to Beaver Creek main area. My husband and I stayed here for a get away and would definitely come back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with windows on two sides for a spectacular view
