“Market Place Lodge #247”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Room #247:
Summary: Exactly what we were looking for and paid for.

Positives:
1. Free wi-fi
2. Cable TV
3. Affordable
4. Free Parking
5. Walking distance to everything
6. Customer Service
7. Kitchen Amenities (saves a lot of money on coffee/breakfast/lunch so we can splurge on dinners)
8. This may seem small but they provided a strong little fan for us on these hot summer nights since there was no A/C

Complaints:
1. Noise from amphitheater got pretty loud sometimes but it was never a big deal since they were done by 10 PM at the latest.
2. The Bed. I think all they need to do is buy or have available a mattress pad topper. Having no box springs makes for a relatively firm surface. It was not a game changer but coming from a soft bed our backs did not enjoy that too much.

Overall a wonderful experience and a great vacation.

Located in the middle of the action, with a hot tub, a bit outdated, reasonably used and abused, clean, convenient located around supermarkets, banks, resto's, 15 min walk to ski lift. I hear there is a shuttle, but did not use it. No management on situ, check in is on the other side of the village :(. The sofa bed is really not confortable though!

Room Tip: the "hotel" room is absolutely tiny.

This is a well worn but comfortable unit. The den has a trundle bed that sleeps two but the frame squeaks and groans if you move around. The coffee table is rickety and the dining room chairs are dangerously rickety and need to be screwed together before someone gets hurt. It's a long walk to the lifts but the shuttle stops just outside the door. Appliances work, although i did have to tighten a screw on the stove. Take a knife sharpener or your own knives. The cooking utensils are functional but a bit of a mish-mash.There are nicer units in the building but this was available and it served its purpose. I would stay her again but it would not be my first choice. TV and internet work. There is a nice view of the mountains.

Room Tip: I like the Marketplace Lodge because the supermarket, pharmacy, candy store, liquor store and severa...

Out little unit was far from little, great fireplace, view, liquor store downstairs, IGA just to the left of the parking lot. The unit was stocked with everything except for condiments, just like mentioned in the welcome email sent to us before our arrival. The only complaint we had was that the fridge was too loud. Ski storage inside was great and the best thing is that the shuttle bus was downstairs as well. Very little walking anywhere. Recommended.

We just completed a five night stay in #236 (1 bed/1 bath). It's located in Whistler Village North, next to Olympic Plaza. The lifts, dining, shopping and groceries were within walking distance. We rented our skis from Affinity and were able to store them at their slope-side location nightly (they also let you store your shoes there during the day), so walking to and from the lifts wasn't a big deal. We never used the shuttle. This property is also one of the few to have free, underground parking. Our unit didn't have laundry but there is a laundry room on the 3rd floor. Overall, it was a great value and great experience.

We stayed here for a week in February.

Our studio unit with parking was located on the the third level.

Very convenient location in the upper village with restaurants, takeout, pizza delivery, coffee and a short walk to the IGA grocery store. And, it's very close to the free shuttle to the lifts if you don't care to walk (walk is less than 10 mins, taking your time).

Fully stocked with all cooking utensils, dishwasher (because who wants to do dishes while on vacation!) and access to the laundry facilities on the same floor ($1.75 to wash a load, $1.75 to dry). I know some of the other units have ensuite laundry. Our unit also has storage for our snowboards and gear!

For the price and in comparison to other units/lodging in the area, we got this for a fantastic price ($800 all in including parking, wifi).

Clean unit, but does need updating.

Just finished a 5 night stay at Jacquie Sali's unit (219) in Marketplace Lodge. We had a fabulous time and the condo was perfect for our needs. It comfortably sleeps 4 adults (1 double bed and 1 pull-out sofa bed). The ski storage area and washer/dryer room were really handy after a day on the slopes. The location is ideal, looking out over the Olympic Plaza and only a short stroll/free shuttle bus from Whistler Village. The fully equipped kitchen was a big plus too, as was the free wifi. Jacquie was really helpful and flexible with our late check-in time. Would definitely recommend.
