Just returned from a 5 night stay at the River Run. We were in the Silver Mill section. This is not a luxury resort so if you see it listed as such set your expecations for average ammenities.
Property - 2 Bdr. - The Bad
Very small and tight. If you have 4 people you will trip over each other.
Appliances out dated and very low end when purchased. Coffee didn't even come out warm.
Very poor sanity - we had pots/pans and dishes that wer coated with grease and other unidentified crud.
Maid service - given the poor situation you would think they would offer something - charge of $100usd if you would like maid service. That was a shock.
Fireplace kept breaking down, the solution was to keep our sliding door open.
The village has limited dining options.
Easy walk to the slopes
The lobby in our section was very nice with a pool table and sitting area witht he only flat screen probably in the entire area.
Staff was responsive, polite, and organized
Parking was right in the basement of our property and accessible - be careful if drive in the morning (prior to 9 am) you may get caught in the queue of people trying to go the the mountain
Dining in area:
River Run Pizza - slow but pretty good pizza. We had to go there twice so I had the meat lasagna - I reccomend as this exceeded my expectations.
there are free buses to get to different areas. About 45 minutes to Breckenridge. If you wanted to go into Dillon to shop, count on about 45 minutes each way with a lot of stops. There is no way to get to Vail, so if you want to go there you will need to make alternative arrangements. Hertz in Frisco is a one hour bus ride - we have been told that they will pick you up but you need to ask. Only a 15 minute drive.
Family mountain with beginner to intermediate terrain. If you are an expert skier, you may not be challenged.
