Ok first let me say we have been going to Breckenridge at least once a year (sometimes 2),for the last 16 years, and of those we have stayed at Main Street station for the past 8 years. This place has had its ups and downs. For the first 5 years it was perfect! The last 3 years it has always been something to make our trip suck, but hey it's vacation, so we move on and enjoy ourselves. Now Wyndham has bought this resort quest property, so I hope they get it back to the perfection it used to be. I had arranged to check in early since our flight was early into Denver and we had a 1 year old with us. Was told no problem, your room will be ready bc the tenants before are leaving the day BEFORE you arrive. So when we get there at 10am, I am told by the little arrogant jerk that check in is at 4 and our room is not ready. This would be ok, if I hadn't arranged it prior, and if my one year old hadn't gotten sick on the plane and I mean sick....she had a tummy bug we weren't aware of til she had a blow up on the plane--twice. The drive up to breck we stopped 3 times to change--- so you get my drift, 5 change of clothes later for her and 2 for me and 1 for my husband since we were holding her on the plane.... Im a very frustrated mommy cause my baby is feeling poopy and needs to rest. I hope when he has children he experiences the full frustration that we felt. The kicker of all is when we finally checked in our room their was a card left by the housekeeper with her name on it and the day the room was cleaned and inspected---which surprise surprise was the whole day before like I was told on the phone. So we waited at the quandary grill for about 5 hours, with her asleep in our arms. Btw our waiter there was so understanding and very accommodating for letting us hang out at a table in the corner with her. They had the best wings and turkey Reuben lunch special!
So enough gripping about check in....Let me give you some pros and cons about mss. From our past and this experience.
Pro's -- this place is convenient on Main Street--- walking distance to everything. Easy walk to quicksilver lift (walk to Maggie's and go thru there to the lift) parking is underground which is nice.
Lots of places to walk to eat, lots of cute shops, great workout facility... This has improved from years past. They have a new flat screen tv in the workout facility, two treadmills, some machines and free weights. Separate men and women lockers with steam room.
The outdoor pool is heated which is a plus with children, plenty of hot tubs.
Cons: hot tubs--The three by the workout room are the most used and busy. Every year for the past 3 years one of these has been out of service. This year it was the middle one.
This year there was a price list left in our room for housekeeping/room service duties like taking out the trash changing sheets and replacing towels. You have to pay extra for this service which is crap for how much a night this place is. We washed our towels, but mind you there is only one washer and dryer on our whole floor I could find. Not in our room. And the washer sounded like it would break any minute... It barely washed our clothes so here i am washing/scrubbing clothes in the bathtub in our unit then taking them to the dryer. (Cause of so many changes/ with baby first day)
A huge con is be very wary of booking a room on the Main Street side. We learned this the hard way. Room 2206 which is where we stayed for many many years is so noisy now because of a bar/club I believe named Celia's. Somewhere between 1-3am the cops are called and arresting someone outside the club for public intoxication or acting a fool. This year we stayed in a room facing the mountain and never heard a peep. Definitely the quiet side and so worth it.
The resort itself is a little dated and needs some new to it, like carpet, so hard to keep clean in a snow town, really needs tile or wood floors. Our room was newly renovated and awesome! New king bed mattresses and deco. Two flat screen TVs. Very very nice. Our checkout gal, was so sweet, if we would of had her when we were checking in, I would of overlooked a lot. Trust me when I say customer service /first impression goes along way...... If your Wyndham reading this, don't put a young arrogant twit on your front line. I am a nurse manager where I work and if one of my nurses or techs acting like this to a customer/family they would of been reprimanded. For how much people pay to stay here, we expect an exceptional attitude/service at all times.
Overall, we will stay here again. It's convenient to both ski and town.
A lot better accommodations than the village or beaver run resort.
