My family of four stayed in this condo for a week in June. This unit is on the 5th floor facing the River Run courtyard, good view of mountain and ski lift, but a little bit blocked by the opposing building's roof. The 2-bedroom/2b-baths was nicely furnished, clean, well-maintained. Water pressure is low, but is probably is an Earth-friendly measure. According to the management desk, every condo is supposed to have a fan (or two) because there is no A/C, but ours did not. We left our windows and door to the balcony open all day/night. At night, we couldn't sleep because it was warm in the bedrooms; no air circulated and no breeze from the outside. Because our windows were always open, we could hear everything going on the the courtyard - kids riding bikes, parents calling out to their kids, people leaving the restaurants/bars, and workers cleaning up or setting up tents for next day's activities. Of the Buffalo Lodge units, ours is one of the farthest from the rest of River Run that leads to the gondola and restaurants/bars/common areas, and we still had noise. There are no washer/dryer in the condo so we used the common one that was down the hall from us. The laundry room was clean, the machines were clean. The lodge has two small hot tubs and allows pool privilege at the Dakota Lodge. The pool there was nice, the hot tubs were bigger. There are only two elevators, and only one of which goes to the parking levels. This is probably a problem during peak season. The beds were hard, some pillows were hard. The balcony is narrow.
There is a nice mini putt putt and playground in the common area surrounded by the Buffalo Lodge, Dakota, and Expedition Station. Good play area for the kids.
Overall, we liked this condo and would stay here again. Next time, we'd be sure that there are fans in the room.
