“Talk about a Bait and Switch”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

OK so maybe it's my inexperience with Time Shares yet when we arrived late at night for the use of the "studio" that "sleeps 4" the front door practically hit the "murphy bed". We literally had to move the sofa (the other sleep piece) to open the murphy bed. If both had been pulled out for use there would have literally been no floor space.

Plusses- location.

Minuses: space or lack there of, condition was marginal, all around unacceptable.

Left the next morning and found much better accomodations using HomeAway.

Room Tip: call the management company in advance and insist on a specific unit. I didn't do this and was...

Really comfortable condo! Interior was practically brand new carpet, paint, tv's, kitchen, and hot tub. We could walk out the back porch onto the 17th hole on the golf course with great views of the mountains. We could also walk to the grocery store and many restaurants ( fell in love with Squatters). We came for the mountain biking but will be back for ski season.

We enjoyed our stay at Park Avenue condos. They were very responsive to us and supplied us with a new coffee pot immediately. The Spring skiing was great. You can get to all the great ski resorts around Salt Lake City. We drove up to Alta and Snowbird in 40 minutes easily. No waits or crowds this time of year and snow almost everyday. Wonderful places to eat in Park City and all around. Our unit was older and it does need some TLC (broken drawers in bedroom for instance). But we found the funiture comfortable and the master bed was fine. We would stay on the Captain Molly side where the view would be the open space and pretty. Our view from unit 286-1 was the street and it was a bit noisy downstairs. We had a great exchange rate from RCI so I have no reason to complain.

We were not disappointed with Park Avenue. While it was an older complex and the rooms were a bit dark, we absolutely loved all of the staff we encountered and the location just can't be beat. Our condo was an updated "gold" level and all the furnishing and kitchen were nicely done. We rented some equipment in Salt Lake and wish we had used Cole-Sport which was right there on the corner by our condo. We could easily walk to the lifts in under 10 minutes and the grocery store was right across the street. Great Place! We will stay there again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2010

i was very excited by the thought of going to park city for the first time, and the pictures of these condos on the website were very nice. the old adage of "too good to be true" definitely holds true. first, just to get it out of the way, the staff was awesome. very nice and very helpful, great people. Now, the room we got was nothing like the pictures on the web, so when you book i would definitely ask what the room is like that you're renting, this was a lesson learned. when we got to the condo it was similar to a brick basement bunker, on the ground floor, minimal light and furniture that was similar to someone emptying out their dorm room and every misplaced/mismatched piece of furniture that they had ended up in this place. the bed was not a king or queen or full, it was 2 twins pushed together and had one large sheet holding them together. on the upside, the pillows were awesome. hot tub was very nice also. if you want a no frills place this is it.

It had been a long time since we have seen snow as we live in South Florida. We decided on Park City, Utah. Heard many great things about it. We have two kids ages 9 and 4. I have to say Park City is great for children. So many activities to keep them busy and having fun always. We went during spring break and the weather was wonderful. 4-3-2009 thru 04-8-2009. We were scared there was not going to be any snow since it is late in the season but mother nature did not fail us. We had plenty of snow and a snow storm so the kids saw it snow for the 1st time. The condo location was great. Across the street from the Condo is a supermarket and pharmacy. There is also a Starbucks for the coffee drinkers and a Burger King for the kids. The Great thing about Park City is the Transportation system. Free Bus pick up. The bus stops are right outside the condo complex. Takes you up and down Park City. This was great. You do not really need to rent a car unless you want to venture outside Park City. We had a 1 Bedroom Condo. This was perfect for the 4 of us. Had a full kitchen and pull out bed that the kids slept on. Unit was fine. It was clean and had all the basic needs we needed for our stay. Our unit had a back porch that faced this huge open field of snow. It was great. We could open the doors and let the kids go and play and watch them from our condo. They were able to build snowman's and do snow angels it was great. I totally recommend this place to any families who have children. The restaurant across the street Squatters was great. Very fast service and great food.
