“Booked for Bachelor Party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

This place was pretty good. We stayed for 4 nights with 12 people and this place was big enough. We didn't feel cramped. The bathrooms and rooms were decent sized. The kitchen area was very nice. Everything was very clean when we got there. The balcony in the back has a nice view of the right side(Mountain House loop side).

The location was okay. They had a free shuttle which helped out a lot. This is a medium walk to get to the closest lifts. You walk over two bridges with go over the creek which is a nice view. This is not the main River Run area but you are close to the ski school and bunny lifts and you can take a lift then go down the mountain to get to the River Run Gondola and River Run area.You have to call the shuttle to go to any of the restaurants or bars. You can also drive about 15 min. to Dillon, CO which is a nice sized town with a grocery store and plenty of places to rent and eat.
There is also grills that you can use out by the two hot tubs, but there is no pool. There is a nice pool table in the upstairs of the lobby but the fitness center was not very good. Small machine that does't seem to work right.

We rented through Keystone Resorts and stayed at unit 5969. It is a two bedroom condo, with a pull-out sofa in the living room. There were 3 adults and 3 kids in our party, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The room had wi-fi, Smart TVs in each room, two bathrooms, plenty of storage for clothes and a beautiful view of the mountain.

Kitchen had all the amenities you need to cook, and we used it a lot, including a quick lunch break (which was much cheaper and quicker than getting a bite on the mountain).

The best thing about the lodge is the price and proximity to the mountain base area. Even with 3 young kids, our walk to the base didn't take more than 7 minutes. The lockers in the garage are nice for storing skis, and we actually left our boots in the cars - since the garage is heated.

The only thing that could be better about the condo is the location of the hot tubs, but that's pretty minor compared to all the other positive things. You have to walk outside about 30 meters to get to the hot tub area from the lobby, and with temperatures in the 10's - it is a bit chilly.

We rented a 2bdrm 2 bath condo at Hidden River over Thanksgiving and it was awful. I don't even know where to start.

Cobwebs everywhere
Dirty carpets
Bugs on pillow when turned it over
So much dust everywhere we all had horrible allergies. It was an inch thick under the bed.
Rusty silverware and pans
Dirty dishes in cupboard
Stove didn't work
The entire building is all outdated and dirty
I suppose it's walking distance if you want a good workout, def. not convenient with kids and only one way in and out - not very accessible
The condo was so cramped and poorly rearranged. We tried to move stuff around to get a little space and underneath the furniture was horrific.
Furniture was miserably uncomfortable; when my husband and I tried to sit on the only couch together it bent in the middle and sunk.

Honestly this place was just so GROSS and uncomfortable don't stay here. I doubt the bedding was clean and the carpets were also dirty. There was so much dust, dirt and cobwebs we may as well have been sleeping outside. They do not clean these places at all.

If you are booking this place make sure it's not the units through the Keystone Resort!! Yuck.

We were quite happy with our stay at the Hidden River Lodge. The condo was nice, our only real complaint was that there is a skylight in master bed room right over the bed with no blinds. We had a balcony that overlooked the stream which was really nice.

I would have given this 4 stars if I hadn't been duped by the management company. We called the management company to inquire about a groupon deal and they told us the total would be $117. Turns out, that $117 was a cleaning and processing fee ON TOP of the $99 groupon. Also, their checkin process and instructions were horrible. After all that, we won't ever stay with this company again.

Room Tip: They have groupon deals, but make sure you READ THE FINE PRINT. They tack on a $99 cleaning fee.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Stayed here for 5 days in March. We wanted to be close to the slopes, but not necessarily pay a ton of money to stay right at the base of the mountain. Facility itself is nice--garage parking, a common meeting area, limited fitness equipment, patios overlooking the mountain, and two hot tubs. There are ski lockers in the garage and wagons to carry everything over to mountain house. It is only about a 5 minute walk to the base of the slope. We rented a basket for $8 every day and left our skis and boots at Mountain House and walked back to the room for lunch. The room it self was comfortable and well-equipped--TV's in every room, wi-fi, most appliances needed to cook. The room came with plenty of soaps, towels, dishwashing detergent, etc. My only complaints are the room was a little dated, the cooking pans, etc., need replaced, the beds weren't very comfortable, and the old TV in the family room was sitting too high to see the screen very well. I would also add flat panel TV's and make the wi-fi faster...it was very slow. Lastly, we had a back up in the sink and guest services was very quick to fix the issue. All in all, would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location. We walked over to the slopes and the wagon really was nice. Shuttle service will take you anywhere that you want to go also. It was a great trip and we really enjoyed it. We stayed in a 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom unit and it worked great for 2 couples.

I would never stay here again. Our condo (5960) smelled and was very dirty. The bathroom was disguisting, the kitchen pots/pans were old and scratched, the fireplace did not work and when was "fixed" it caused us to have headaches (leaking carbon monoxide), the sheets/towels had orange stains and dog hair on them, and the furniture was old and falling apart. Don't waste your money here. We paid about the same price for an amazing resort room at other places in Utah and Colorado. Oh, and by the way the 2 hot tubs are a joke--they were green and had a film on them. I told Keystone Property management but nothing was really done for us to make our stay better. They said they could not move us because they were completely booked! I didn't believe it one bit.
