We've stayed in Keystone many times and always select different properties just to try them out. We selected a 1 bedroom condo in Lakeshore (right next to Keystone Lodge). It's on the Shuttle route, which is probably the best thing about it. The shuttle literally stops 3 times an hour right outside the main doors. The ski lockers are located a few steps from the main door, which is the second best thing. The condo itself is in need of some major updates. The dining room table was wobbly and very unstable. I'm sure it just needs the bolts and screws tightened, but who carries a wrench and screwdriver around with them on vacation? Well, maybe some do, but I certainly don't. The appliances are very old, but were all still working somehow. The kitchen didn't have a frying pan or skillet or any kind, which is probably one the main things people use. The bed was as hard as a rock and the sheets were cheap and scratchy. The shower worked very well and the water was hot all the time. The worst thing about the condo is the heat (thermostat). The individual thermostats do not function. The heat is controlled by a main unit located somewhere in the building (we were told this by the maintenance man). The temperature in the unit was over 80 degrees. We literally kept the windows open during the day and night so we could be somewhat comfortable. Of course, at night, when the temp dropped to zero outside, we would have to get up and close the window because we were freezing. Then, after a couple of hours, we would be sweating again and would have to get up and open the window once more. The other thing that wasn't that great was the noise level. This unit was located adjacent to the lake which has ice skating and hockey. The music is blaring till around 9pm. We knew this going in and expected some noise from the lake, but didn't realize how much an ice puck echoes when kids are slamming it against the rink wall. Basically sounded like gunshots. We only had to endure this a couple of hours since we were away most of the day. It's not the worst thing, but just approach it with some patience and maybe sit outside and enjoy the music and views of people skating. This unit is certainly not the best in Keystone, but if you're on a budget and have some patience, this may work for you. Unit was #1040.
