“In need of maintenance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

For the price we paid, we could overlook the issues. But if I had paid any more, I would have been disappointed. There were a lot of small issues in our condo, broken patio chairs, chunks of grout falling out into the tub while showering. It was clean, but could have been a little cleaner.
The was a lot of wear on the furniture and fixtures. But comfortable.
If you get the $69 a night deal that we did, I would go for it!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

I stayed here during spring break 2014 and found it to be as good of a value as is probably available in the Keystone/Breck/Copper/Vail area.

While not a 5-star resort, it most certainly is right there closer to the lifts than if you had driven and parked in the parking lot. The furnishings were in excellent condition, comfortable, and the place was CLEAN.

I've seen other reviews complaining of noise and I was not bothered by noise at all.

The kitchen was adequately equipped to make full meals and that's a good thing because one downside is a bit of a thin selection of nearby restaurants.

I Highly recommend Slopeside for the value and convenience, and I would gladly stay there again.

We have stayed at Slopeside several times over the years in various types of rooms. Though certainly showing its age and needing some upgrades, we have found it to be consistently the least expensive lodging located this close to a chairlift at Keystone. Slopeside has 2 buildings, A & B, with A being the closest to the slopes. It is a short easy walk to the Peru Express chairlift from here. There is underground parking under both buildings which is nice on snowy days, and elevators to all floors. Ski lockers are conveniently located on the first floor. During this stay we had a studio on the top floor of building B, with views looking west over the parking lot and spectacular views of Buffalo mountain in the distance. Being on the top floor, the room has high cathedral ceilings which makes the small studio feel larger than it is, and lots of windows. The room has a murphy bed and updated furniture, though the pictures on the walls are very faded. The murphy bed was surprisingly comfortable. The kitchen area and fridge are small but have all of the basics for making meals. Areas around the bath tub and the back of the bathroom door looked like they could use some maintenance but were functionally fine. Everything looked clean in the room. The only big maintenance issue we saw was one of the windows looked like it was about to fall out of its frame. Otherwise we were happy with the room and it was mostly quiet. There's not much to do in the Mountain House area and we knew that already. Most of the restaurants, shopping and activities are in the River Run and Lakeside areas. There are free shuttles that go back and forth between Mountain House and River Run all day and the shuttle stop is a short walk to the east past the Chateau d'Mont condos next door, not far from the Argentine and Peru chairlifts. We would stay here again.

I stayed here for a week while attending a Keystone symposia. The decor and furnishings are dated but the room was clean and everything worked. Two things I found annoying was that it felt like the headboard was about to fall off the bed and was therefore a bit noisy and there didn't seem to be any sound protection from the floor above. My understanding is that they have a block of rooms for the Symposia bookings, 2737 certainly didn't look as if it was privately owned. Great location for skiing though, a short walk (completely possible in ski boots) to the lift. Fifteen minute icy walk to the conference centre or you could call for a shuttle. Stayed here ten years ago and would stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the carpark get more sunshine and have a spectacular view of the mountains opposite the...

Location of condo near base of mountain and lifts is great but still a hassle to carry skis and having to walk down some flights of steps from condo to lifts and back especially with young kids at the end of a tiring day. In fact, Keystone has very good free bus shuttle service that will pick you up from the many Keystone managed accomodation and drop you off at the ski lifts - which is shorter distance than having to walk from Slopeside condo. So if you can find alternate accommodation that is newer and better value than Slopeside then go for it (as long as the shuttle services the accommodation). If you drive, parking is even closer to lifts but you have to pay for parking.

Also, our condo is small and not very clean. Sofa bed was filthy so management provided free rollaway bed which unfortunately was also not very clean.

Hill grooming and snow blowing noises were minimal. If you have to stay here, ask for a third floor corner unit to avoid noises from neighboring units.

Given the premium price we paid for choosing Slopeside being at the base of the mountain, we will not stay here again but will look for a newer lodge style unit within Keystone with free shuttle.

We skied in Keystone during Christmas Break 2013. We stayed in Slopeside Condo unit 2738. I knew in advance that this was budget lodging. The unit was a one room studio with a Murphy bed and a pull out couch. There was updated furniture and the unit was clean but otherwise dated. The pull out couch was terrible as expected. The Murphy bed was tolerable. The efficiency kitchen had a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, crock pot, and 2 burner range. There was no oven. There were two hot tubs with a mountain view but one lacked Jacuzzi function.
The prime reason to stay here is the less crowded Mountain House area and close walk to slopes. It is close enough to return for lunch. Although the unit was average, the location is superb. Free ski lockers within steps of the unit were appreciated. Free bus transportation between areas was reliable and friendly.
If you take it for what it's worth, the units are good lodging for budget travelers.

We just returned from our stay at Mountain House-Slopeside Condos in Keystone, CO. We stayed in Condo #2800, which had two bedrooms and one bathroom. I thought the condo was decently decorated and we didn't experience any of the noise of hill grooming or snow blowing that others had written about. The bedrooms do get quite warm, so turn down the thermostat quite a bit before going to bed.
I thought the kitchen was a decent size and suited our needs - which was having all breakfasts and most lunches at the condo (and we have two teenagers, lol).
I only have two complaints and neither has to do with this nice condo unit.
One: This is not a true ski in ski out condo, as advertised. You will have to walk down stairs, down a ramp way, across a small bridge then across a small resort road and through or around the Mountain House to get to the lifts. Early in the season (we went for Thanksgiving weekend), there was only one lift of the two open at Slopeside. ALL ski school classes, except for very small children and first timers are all located at River Run. Any activities such as Tubing and the Snow Cat tours are also, guess where, yes - back at River Run. So, next time we will just stay at River Run and save ourselves the constant shuttling back and forth from Mountain House Slopeside to River Run.
Two: Beware of requesting late check out. I requested late check out (and we were prepared to pay for this) when I booked the reservation a month prior to our trip. I called the day we were leaving for the trip to make sure that Late Check was noted on the system (they said it was). I called the night before our departure back home to find out what time our Late Check out was and was told they could not tell me my options until the morning of. I called first thing in the morning to then be told I couldn't have a late check out! Ugh! I could've packed up the night before had this information been told to me 10 hours prior when I called.
All of that being said - we will return but will stay in River Run area instead. The staff at the lifts, driving the busses, working at the ski school, etc. were all wonderful! The slopes were great and snow cat tour was amazing! Tubing was okay (we've had better in other places) but the staff was still fun and nice. Happy Skiing!

Room Tip: Condo #2800 had no noise problems (in November) and was decently decorated
