“Very surprised and impressed”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

After staying in Breckenridge many times this was our first at the Breck Inn and I would stay there again in a second. Not right in town but there is a free shuttle that runs twice an hour right across the street and the hot tub was very nice, free wine cheese and crackers on check in and the morning breakfast had more to offer than most. Very surprised to find what I assumed a blah experience, very quaint comfortable and above my expectations.

Thank you for taking the time to share your review of the Breck Inn with the TripAdvisor community. We certainly enjoy and appreciate this feedback.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We work hard to ensure every guest staying with us has a great vacation. It is rewarding to see that our efforts are paying off with an improved continental breakfast and an enjoyable hot tub. On Friday nights, we are also able to welcome our guests with a complimentary selection of wine and cheese.

As mentioned, the Summit Stage is a free, local bus that picks up twice an hour just across the street from the Breck Inn, with reduced hours running past midnight. We are also happy to announce that we will resume our own shuttle service this ski season. Though the hours will remain limited, the convenience of our own shuttle is something we are thrilled to be offering once again.

Once again, thank you for sharing your review. We hope to see you again soon!

No need to repeat what others have said, but a word to the wise: Ask for a room with a king instead of two queens. The rooms are adequate, but with two beds it's a bit cramped. With the king room, one gets a sofa. Bath and lavatory areas are small for this sort of accommodation. The staff from the front desk to the cleaning crews were all pleasant and helpful. There's a decent free breakfast. There's also a nice hot tub just outside the back door.

Room Tip: Ask for a king and try to get a room on the back.

Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We appreciate the tremendous contributions you have made to the TripAdvisor community and the feedback you are able to provide us.

Though the number of king rooms we are able to offer is quite limited, we are happy to hear that the alternate furniture layout is appreciated. We recognize that our rooms, especially the queen rooms, are on the small side. As such, we have worked diligently to enhance the guest lounge, lobby, and our loft so we can provide more areas for a family to spread out.

As previously mentioned, we are continuously working to improve our breakfast selection. While we hope that we are able to provide an option for everyone, we recognize that there are better options yet to be discovered and always will listen to any suggestions.

We appreciate the kind comment about our hot tub. Our engineering staff is continuously working to make certain the hot tub is at its best. Although it is under a roof, there is little better on a cool, mountain evening than a soak in an outdoor hot tub.

Above all else, we seek to provide the best possible service to everyone who stays with us. If this means directions to a local hiking trail or accommodating a request for a king room, we strive to make your stay the best it can be.

Having read the recent reviews of The Breck in I didn't expect a Marriott, but turns out we still had a great experience. Like many others we stayed here as part of the Lodge at Peak 7's timeshare sales incentive. Our parents own at The Lodge and we were excited to check it out and have a getaway as a family. When we arrived at The Breck Inn (after 13 hours of travel) we were exhausted. The hotel is conveniently located at the entrance to town, very easy to find. The gal at the check in was very kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. She even offered to upgrade us to a 1 bedroom suite for our stay (very helpful of her given we were traveling with our 2 1/2 year old son). The room was very accommodating - full kitchen, plenty of towels, king size bed, pull out queen sofa sleeper. Both beds were VERY comfortable with plenty of bedding and pillows. Everything was very clean and the recent updates are attractive. Breakfast is what all the other reviews suggested - continental breakfast (waffles, hard boiled eggs, doughnuts, muffins, cereal, yogurt, juice, etc.) I don't have any complaints. It was nice to have juice, coffee, hot chocolate, granola bars, and fruit available all day and night. A very nice touch. We enjoyed the use of the hot tub and forgive the lack of swimming pool given that the community rec center is just across the street. There is no AC in the room but a fan was in our closet - we put that in the window and it cooled things off perfectly. Given the price of this hotel, we would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you for taking the time to share your review for the Breck Inn. We are happy to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed a nice little get away.

We are glad that you appreciated the extra space we were able to offer in one of our studio units. The full kitchen and additional space is a huge plus for any person traveling and we wish we could offer this type of unit to everyone. Alas, we only have 2 studios that we are able to offer, so they are typically given on a first come, first serve basis so we can ensure they are used to their full potential.

Interestingly enough, the studio units are the only rooms in the Breck Inn without air conditioning. All of our standard hotel rooms are equipped with individually controlled air conditioning and heat to keep the unit comfortable during all times of the year. In our high altitude environment though, we find that a fan blowing in some fresh air is just as nice as air conditioning.

While we acknowledge that our breakfast is just a continental breakfast, we are always open to new ideas that will make it better. Included in this, is making apples, oranges, granola bars, coffee and hot chocolate available all day. From time to time, everyone needs a midday snack and we are happy to provide a small bite to hold you over.

Again, thank you for taking the time to create this review. We truly do appreciate the feedback and are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Like many others, we stayed here as a comp to viewing the Grand Lodge of Peak 7. Interesting that the Grand Lodge people put us up here to try and sell their place which is significantly higher end.

Nonetheless, we felt the room was a bit tight, but reasonable. The biggest issue is the A/C unit which sits about 2 feet away from one of the beds. All night it just blasted into me ~ so much that i had to build a pillow wall to keep from freezing all night. Turning the unit off just heat up the room too much with four bodies inside and the road noise outside was too great to leave the balcony door open.

Nevertheless, for ski season, this motel is probably a good setup. It is reasonably close to the lifts and on the bus line. The comp breakfast was actually decent and not just coffee and donuts (they had muffins and cereal too).

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side have a great view of Breckenridge but come with road noise. The other side is...

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share this review. We do appreciate this information and will use it to help make our property better.

While we recognize that our rooms are small, we have always considered air conditioning to be one of our greatest assets here at the Breck Inn. Unfortunately, we had never made the connection that the small rooms would place the bed too near the air conditioning unit. We apologize for the discomfort this caused during your stay and have begun researching solutions to this dilemma. Currently, we are looking into a different type of vent that will direct the air up and away from the bed.

We are glad to hear that you did enjoy our continental breakfast. We hope that we are able to provide a choice for everyone who stays with us, including those with allergies to gluten and lactose.

Once more, thank you for sharing your review with the community.

Stayed here at discount for taking tour of Grand Lodge on Peak 7. Room was nice though small. Would have been nice to have an easy chair, but there is no room. Getting in and out was a little complicated as it is on a divided highway and you cannot exit out to go both ways, depending on direction you going you need to make a U turn at the corner. Too much bedding for room temperature that you control. Ours was set at 63 and it was still too warm.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts after your recent stay with us! We are also glad that you shared the information regarding the divided highway and the need to make a U-turn to get to us. While we wish we could change the road configuration, we have determined that our best option at this point is to share this information as freely as possible ahead of time.

We are thrilled that you found our room to be nice and we agree that our rooms are not large. We did explore the option of putting in a lounge chair, but came to the same conclusion that it would cramp the room even further. Instead, we have been putting our efforts into improving our common spaces and making them more enjoyable, comfortable, and usable. Our guest lounge, lobby, and loft have all seen new furniture and amenities, including a new guest computer in the loft, which we hope encourage the spaces to be used to their fullest potential.

As we enter our spring season, we are torn between leaving the units set with the heat or the air conditioning when they are unoccupied. During the night and early morning, the heat is necessary to keep the units warm, but the afternoon sun quickly heats the units to raise the need for air conditioning. At this point of the season, we continue leaving the units set with the heat at 63, but can easily turn on the air conditioning should the need arise. Furthermore, we will be conducting a thorough inspection of each air conditioning unit during our upcoming remodel. This will help us catch any problems and allow the units to operate with maximum efficiency.

Again, thank you for sharing your review with the Trip Advisor community. We hope you are able to stay with us again in the future to enjoy our upcoming improvements and a beautiful Breckenridge summer.

The Breck Inn comes with a catch; we had to take a 90 minute tour of the Grand Lodge on Peak 7. The hotel was modest and very clean with an average continental breakfast, comfortable bed, and large hot tub. It is located within a mile of the town gondola to access Shock Hill, Peak 7, and Peak 8. Parking was $10, but since we had four in our car, the carpool rate of $5 applied. Assistance at the hotel is always available; however, the person, only one person I do believe, working the front desk area accessible to guests is also doing many other duties around the property, so though he is available, he or she is pulled in several directions much of the time. All in all, it was well worth the roughly $200 I paid to stay for four nights and the discounted lift tickets. By the way, we also purchased a time share at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7. We enjoyed it for a short time before we left, but we are looking forward to returning next year.

Thank you for taking the time to share about your experience with us at the Breck Inn. We are thrilled that you have decided to become a part of the Breckenridge Grand Vacations family and hope that you will be able to stay with us again soon.

While we are glad to hear that you enjoyed our continental breakfast, comfortable beds, and large hot tub, we are sorry that our presence at the front desk has not been sufficient. We have noticed a sizable increase in business and have felt ourselves being pulled in multiple directions as you noted. As we hope to continue this trend, we are evaluating our staffing levels to ensure that we can continue to provide exceptional service.

Though we are able to provide parking for no charge at the Breck Inn, the ski resort does charge a fee for parking at the base areas during the ski season. For this reason, we have been operating our shuttle on a limited schedule to provide an alternative for our guests.

Again, thank you for taking the time to share about your experience with us. We hope that you will be able to stay with us soon so you can enjoy our upcoming renovations that will be completed in May of 2012.

The Breck Inn is under new management. The place is clean, comfortable, convenient and welcoming. The beds and pillows are top notch. The staff is unmatched in their friendliness and enthusiasm for service. This is an older, refurbished place. It is not elegant, it is not fancy, but the toiletries ands towels are better than you find in even high end brand name hotels. The location at first seems a little one sided in that you have to go around a median when arriving from the north and when traveling south to get to Breckenridge, but as it turns out, it's very easy to do, with lights at either end and a turn lane. About one mile north of the hustle and bustle of town, parking is easy and getting to all the important places, whether for skiing or apres ski, is a breeze.

The hotel itself is an older, two story, hallway style inn with a cheerful entry that includes a large screen TV, a glorious fireplace and comfortable couches. At first glance, a traveler accustomed to staying in newer condo style accommodations might be wary of the "homey," cozy, non-franchised stylings of the entrance, then the "college dorm" look of the main hallway, but don't judge this book by its simple cover. Rooms are comfortable, noise is not a problem, there is a mini fridge in every room and a very new, Samsung flatscreen. The entire inn is wi-fi'd and there is a free computer for 24-hour guest use, situated on a lovely lofted landing at the end of the main staircase, complete with spacious desk and table lamp.

Lest you think that the Breck in is "just another bumpy, beaten up bed in a ski town," the best, in my opinion is yet to come: yes, the rooms, beds, towels, toiletries and location are great: the value is unsurpassed. In addition to free wi-fi, free mini fridge, free parking, access to free town bus, free hotel shuttle on weekends, there is free breakfast in the Breck Inn's 24/7 access lounge where you can get free coffee, capuccino, hot chocolate, tea, juice and fruit. Breakfast is continental--hard boiled eggs, make-yourself fresh waffles, yogurt, gluten free muffins, cereals, granola bars, the coffee thing, and fruit. It may not be the ideal hot breakfast, but it's enough to get you through to a 1 p.m. lunch stop after the crowds on the slope. There are family style tables in the lounge, a large widescreen, and a microwave for guest use. You have no idea what a boon this is until you've had the opportunity to cruise down to the first floor and get either a hot or cold refreshment any time you want it while you stay here. We weren't able to cook in our room, but the City Market is very close; we bought meals to go there, and prepped exactly what we liked back at the lounge at the Inn.

Not least is the staff. As I said, the Breck is under new management and the staff has taken the mission of re-creating the hotel to heart. Anything you want, any question you have, is eagerly pursued for you. They are proud to be part of a dedicated, stable team that runs this terrific little place to stay, and it shows.

The improvements I'd like to see in this surprisingly affordable and accommodating hotel are: better lighting in the guest rooms (one more lamp on the table or a wall sconce would be nice), scrambled eggs or hot egg patties at breakfast, and more shuttle service. None of these are deal breakers--just suggestions. I would stay at the Breck Inn again any time.

Thank you for taking the time to share this review! We do appreciate this information and are always working to make ourselves better.

We completely agree that our location is a little more difficult to access with the divided highway. Over the past year we have repainted the building and installed a brand new sign to help make ourselves more visible, though I am afraid there is little we can do about the U-turns.

I am glad that you were able to enjoy our revamped public spaces. In our 2nd floor loft, we have installed a new desk with a computer and printer for our guests to use. This has completed the space and is now a comfortable area to enjoy a book from our bookshelf. In our lobby, we have updated our furniture to make it more comfortable. In the lobby and guest lounge we will be continuing our improvements this spring! The same can be said for our plain hallways, which will also receive a designer’s touch with new carpet and a beautiful paint scheme.

We do appreciate your suggestions as well. We have already placed an order for new lighting in the rooms. This will not only replace the existing lighting, but will also add another small lamp on the desk to provide additional light. We expect this order to be delivered sometime this spring, though our request to install outlets in the lamp bases has added to the delivery time. As for adding another type of protein to our breakfast, we have explored and sampled a variety of products but have found the quality to be disappointing. Never the less, we are always looking for new items to add to our breakfast to make it more filling and more nutritious.

Again, thank you for sharing your review. We hope that you will be able to stay with us in the coming months to enjoy our ongoing improvements.
