We got a room here because of the convenience to the mountain at Winter Park and the price. For those two reasons, it's fine. However, the experience was not great. Parking is "first-come, first served," which means people who stayed the night before and have checked out but are skiing for the day still have their cars in the garage when people are checking in for the next night. We could not use our "free" parking pass because of this. We parked outside around the back of the building and hauled our gear up to our room by the side stairs - the only elevator is next to check-in, only convenient to the parking garage. This would not normally be such an issue but because we couldn't use the heated garage, we didn't want to leave our ski boots and outer gear outside to be frozen in the morning. We left our skis locked on top of our car and just trusted that they would be alright in the morning. (They were.) One concern -- the outside doors were never locked and therefore accessible to anybody at any hour, on the other side of the building from the check-in and not visible from the street. That didn't really seem safe to me. Our room was clean enough and though quite outdated, it had adequate towels and TP. My children settled in to watch a movie and discovered that our remote control didn't access the "movie channels" advertised on the TV and the pamphlet in the room. When we called to ask for help, we were told that only some of the rooms have that kind of TV. It is basically luck of the draw whether you get a room with movie channel access. We thought that was very odd. The mattresses were fair -- a little too soft for all of us. No minifridge or included continental breakfast. Again, for what we needed, the room was functional, but overall not worth the money or experience. I'll stay somewhere down in Winter Park or Fraser next time to get the amenities I would expect in your average hotel.
