“Good location, nice room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at Skiway the first week of February. The location is very close to Main Street so it was an easy walk to get breakfast and dinner everyday. Our room (suite 3) had a fridge and coffee maker so you could bring your own cereal, etc. if you wanted to. We used the hot tub each day after being on the slopes and it was great. It is a short walk downhill to get the free bus to the ski lifts and we never waited any longer than 10 minutes. Make sure you ask for a humidifier for your room. We are from the east coast and not accustomed to the dry air. The only negative I can say is that because our suite was on the third floor it was super hot. However the heat was an easy problem to fix as we would just crack the window. Jake was at the lodge to greet us and he was extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone in Breck was so nice and happy, it was a refreshing change from the busy and sometimes rude attitudes of the east coast. All in all we had a great stay at the Skiway Lodge.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed at the SkiWay Lodge for 6 nights between the day after Christmas and New Years Day. The lodge is very nicely decorated and clean, although the place is not staffed 24/7. When the staff were there, they were very attentive and appeared eager to help if we needed anything. As other people have mentioned before, the lodge is Ski-In but not ski-out, which is not that uncommon for the area and definitely couldn't be found in the same price range as ski-way. The only drawback of the place was the lack of an elevator to the third floor (only went to the second) and the uphill walk from the Breckenridge Village as the bus only comes about once every 15 minutes and that's how long it takes to just walk downtown.

Overall, it was a great, affordable place to stay in Breckenridge!

Room Tip: Rooms 1 -4 are on the 3rd floor, where there is no elevator. If that is important to you choose room...

I can't believe more people don't know about this place!
Skiway Lodge has it all. A perfect location (short walk to downtown, on bus route to mountain and ski-in/ski-out), excellent value, comfortable beds and stylish new furniture, 2 fantastic hot tubs...Skiway Lodge dots every "i" & crosses every "t".
Look no further, this is your new favorite place!
Thank you for everything, we will be back!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with this place.

This is our second time to stay at the Skiway Lodge and we have loved both visits! It is like a secluded inn with rich leather and wood furnishings. Multiple common areas, attractively appointed. Fireplace in common room and in most bedroom suites. Our suite easily accomodated the three in our family by using the sleeper sofa. We enjoyed the hot tub each afternoon after skiing. Common area has dishes, glassware, and hot drinks - with refrig in room, you can easily do your own breakfast and happy hours! Very convenient for both skiing and walking to historic Main Street. We plan to return here many times!!

My girlfriend and I have stayed here a number of times the past few winters and love it more each time! We really enjoy the seclusion of the woods and hot tubs, while being only a two blocks from downtown (Main St). The office?front desk isn't staffed 24/7, but the owner and employees were very helpful when we did see them with questions. Tip: Read the check in info - The lodge is ski-in/ski-out, however, taking the free bus (across the street from the lodge) up the hill to the base of Peak 7 or 8 to get to the slopes is a MUCH easier option, rather than skiing down to the gondola. At the end of the day, from Peak 8, ski down Four O'Clock Run and stay left to SkyWay SkiWay (to gondola), the lodge is on the right.

Room Tip: Suite 3, on the top floor, with its four post bed, fireplace and balcony is the nicest room we'v...

If you want to be steps away from the charm of downtown Breck, yet feel like you are tucked away in the forrest, this is a great place to stay. The rooms are lovely, the hot tub is grand, and you can park your car once you arrive and walk to hiking, dinner and skiing.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the main road.

I stayed here for 3 nights in Feb for a ski trip. We (2 people) took the shuttle in from Denver and found our door key taped to the front door of the lodge. There were instructions enclosed for everything we needed during our stay taped to the front door. The room was on the small side for 2 people but very comfortable. The lodge is beautifully decorated and furnished from bedroom to common areas. Everything was extremely clean. The common eating area had tea, coffee, juice, hot/cold water, ice, cookies, oatmeal and silverware, dishes/glasses and everything you could need. No actual sink or cooking area though but there was a microwave and fridge in our room. Common lounge area on the 1st and 2nd floors had board games, TVs and a warm fireplace and I remember seeing a computer too but didn't use it. We didn't use the hot tubs but it looked fine and several other people did and they seemed to enjoy it. There was an elevator that goes only to the 2nd floor but I couldn't get it to work - storage room for skis/boards is on 2nd floor. We carried skis & snowboards up to our 3rd floor bedroom (didn't see storage room until later) also our luggage - luckily, we packed light. The bus stop is just 3 minutes walk down the street and takes you to all the main lifts, depending on which bus you get on (easy to figure out since bus lines are colour coded). Fifteen minutes walk to main street where all the shops, rental places and restaurants are located.
I didn't really mind the lack of staff around because we didn't need additional services (the maid did make up the room everyday and that was all I needed), in fact, it felt more personal that nobody was around because it felt like we were guests in someone's (very nice) home rather than a hotel/lodge. The lodge was full (I could tell for the many cars parked in front) but I didn't hear anyone, maybe just for a little bit of talking while they were outside in the hot tub area but it didn't bother me at all.
I wasn't sure what to expect when we decided on this place but it was great. Good location, comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. The only thing was we wished there was a supermarket close by to buy some fruits and snacks (I found one but very expensive and extremely limited selection). If you are driving here, I would recommend stocking up on whatever snacks/food you want before arriving as very limited selection around the lodge. Overall, a great stay, great trip and I will definitely return next year.
