We stayed at Unit 9. Check in is a bit of a challenge at Blackcomb Lodge which is not easy to find for the Whistler uninitiated. The location is a short walk to skiing (5 min or so to either base) and this is the best feature of the unit- but not ski in or out. There are no additional features such as a pool or hot tub.
The unit was ok but definitely tired & dated. There were doors missing from bathroom cupboards, from closets and mold on the main bathroom ceiling. The bathroom fixtures were very dated and falling apart (the shower door, handles on the very dated and small "whirl pool tub" and cracked fixtures in the powder room). The shower/bathtub is actually difficult to get in & out. The main bedroom was reasonable & comfortable but the second was very small & claustrophobic with no window and an uncomfortable bed.
The kitchen was reasonably appointed but very second rate and limited utensils, pots & pans & cutlery. It would be a small investment to remedy this.
Parking is a little bit of a hike from the unit (although not unreasonable).
Overall I was disappointed as a middle aged professional and would seek other accommodation or our next Whistler visit.
