another off season one night stay on a trip through the Rockies. The Polaris is a ski lodge that seems to be the budget arm of the trickle Creek golf and ski resort. All the amenities are in the attached, but clearly separate Trickle Creek Lodge. The place was the high end of budget priced at $136 a night but... More

We had a king bed room with a view of the ski hill. Clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced! Free underground parking, and in a quiet area of town during the summer at least. Montana's restaurant in close vicinity.

OK place, easy check in at the next door hotel. Large room, fair sized deck, full kitchen with place set for 4, pots, pans, toaster, etc. Beds were ok, very firm but comfy. Two big tv's. Room was clean and a fair place for the discount rate paid. Short drive to town. Light sleepers note that in our room the... More

This was a fantastic place that exceeded expectations. Well built, superb location and reasonable given all the amenities. We rented a 2 bedroom place with a loft for the 4 of us and it was perfect. The snow wasn't the delicious 'pow we had last year - it full on spring skiing conditions but it was fun and we made... More

Our family consists half downhill skiers and half cross-country. We rented one of the condos on the first floor and all of us could literally go out the door to either the big hill or directly onto the cross country trails, which were lit at night giving the snow the effect of a field of bright diamonds.

We visited here during a particularly frigid time; No one was here unless they had to be. We had made a reservation a long time in advance so we went ahead and came any way. There were very few other people in the building, so we had a wonderfully quiet night's sleep. The mattress was not the best, and they... More

A great place to get away with friends. Spacious rooms make for a the perfect place to hang out with a group of girls.
