My wife and I stayed at the Marriott Mountain Valley Lodge in Breckenridge from June 13-20, 2014. This was a timeshare exchange, so we pretty much took the unit that was assigned to us. As it turned out, we were very, very pleased with the accommodations. We had a second floor studio in the Creekside building overlooking Maggie’s Pond with a partial view of the snow-capped mountains. The unit is one large L-shaped room with a comfortable queen sized bed, living room with couch and chair and fully equipped kitchen with stove, dishwasher and large fridge. All dishes, pots & pans and utensils are supplied as well as coffee, dishwasher soap, Tide for the laundry room (right next door) and just about anything we required. The bathroom had a separate toilet closet which is helpful and my wife loved the lit swivel makeup mirror that was attached to the wall. The 32” LG TV was adequate and rotated easily to watch from couch, dinette table or bed.
The hotel sponsored numerous activities every day and we tried the waffle breakfast (so-so), one of the movies in the fire place lounge (Secret Life of Walter Mitty) and took a 5 or 6 mile hike guided by a member of staff with about 12 other guests which was outstanding. We had to call for assistance on a couple of occasions; difficulty with DVD player-actually needed to be fixed- and difficulty adjusting the heat and they had someone at our door in minutes. All the staff was helpful and pleasant and special thanks to Rachel O’Neal for receiving a 16-page document e-mailed from my office and having it printed and delivered to my door at no charge. They had an excellent fitness facility (almost as good as the one we belong to at home) which we used almost every day and a very nice game room for kids with arcade games, foosball, Wii and a ping pong table we played almost every day. There are four hot tubs next to the heated pool as well.
A few reviews we read before our trip were critical of the underground parking garage. It takes a little maneuvering to pull into some of the spaces, but no big deal.
The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from Main Street in Breckenridge and there are numerous restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Full sized City Market is about a five-minute drive. The hotel supplies a glossy restaurant guide with menus of dozens of restaurants, so it is easy to pick local restaurants. We had crystal clear skies almost the entire week, but it took us a couple of days to get used to the high altitude. We had headaches that got better each day. All in all, we were extremely pleased with our experience and you will be too.
