This is by far the worst Marriott Vacation Club we've ever experienced (I only gave it a 2 for the location). But there are a few caveats that may make this a better option in the future:
Built in the 70's, and looks like it hasn't been updated since then. Threadbare furniture in nasty oranges and browns. Old carpets. Popcorn 8 ft ceilings feel claustrophobic. Towels are thin and grayish. Odd layout of the rooms with poor use of space including pointless, huge walk-in closets. Very small kitchen. Old appliances - noisy refrigerator. NO in-room washer/dryer. Unresponsive heating system. Sliding doors that don't. Stains on walls of uncertain source. Holes in kitchen cabinets. Parking is tight. No wheelchair for guest transfers (really Marriott? in Breckenridge? with skiers?). Small lobby - large but outdated common area.
PROS: Great location at base of Peak 9 - about a 50 yard walk across a bridge to the slopes. Short walk to downtown. Some rooms can see the base of a run. Charter sports provides rentals and ski check even if you don't rent from them. Front desk folks extremely nice.
FUTURE: Samples of new colors, furniture, and design posted on the wall. IF Marriott spends the money to gut the rooms, replace all of the furniture, fixtures, appliances, etc. - this could be an awesome spot. Based on the fact that Marriott has waited so long to update, the changes might end up only being cosmetic - leaving you to tolerate the hotel to get the slopeside access.
