“A must stay in Steamboat Springs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2011

Trailhead Lodge is a fantastic place to stay in Steamboat Springs. The staff could not have been more helpful. the units are faultless. We rented a one bedroom plus den for 6 nights. it was beautiful and in brand new condition. The den is off the louge area and does not have a door so if you have young kids to go to bed keep this in mind (saying that the kids were so tired after skiing that there was not much chance of waking them!) TV's in den , lounge and bedroom. Everything is provided right down to washing powdwer and dishwasher tablets. The kitchen is well equipped and has beautiful dark wood doors and granite worktops. The location of Trailhead Lodge is fantastic. It is really quiet and has it's own gondola at the side of the building.The gondola takes you to the centre of the mountain village right next to the ski school office, ticket office and ski rental places. We got a voucher from Trailhead for 20% off ski hire at Black Tie ski rental (so it might be worth waiting until you get there to hire equipment) The gondola stops running around 5.30pm but if you need a ride anywhere the staff at the desk are happy to arrange this in their shuttle bus or let you know when the next free shuttle bus is due to come by.the pool facilities are great. A large general pool great for kids and 3 hot tubs for all.You can even just sit outside beside the fire pit and keep warm while keeping an eye on the kids in the pool.The whole complex has a real luxury feel about it and although we paid $212 a night I could honestly say it was worth it.

Room Tip: stayed in 5107 great views of the mountain

We just stayed at the Trailhead this last week during our spring break.
The rooms and amenities are all top notch. Everything is top of the line in the room and throughout the hotel (granite counters, stainless appliances and comfortable beds). From the moment we were greeted by Jeff when we drove up, we were treated like royalty. The gondola just a few steps away from the front of the lodge was awesome! after a long day of skiing we could drop off our skis in front walk down to the boot room to store our boots and we would be back in our room in minutes!
This place definitely met and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Stay there!

We actually traveled in February but I had to write a review, even if its late! From the time we arrived the service was exceptional! We were greeted by name outside by the property manager. Our room was gorgeous from the hardwood floors to the view! The private gondola cannot be understated. The ease in which it gets you to and from the mountain is awesome! We were at the lifts when they opened every day, skied until lunch then back to eat and a nap then right back to ski for the afternoon. It was so easy because of the gondola! The private shuttle offered during the day makes grocery shopping and running errands a piece of cake. The heated pool and hot tubs made the evenings very relaxing. The knowledge of the staff was very helpful in regards to dining out and other activities! We had such a great time I'm taking my daughter back next week! We will not stay anywhere but Trailhead if we come to Steamboat!

Very much enjoyed our stay at the comfortable and clean hotel. There is a Gondola that runs from just outside of the building to the village at the base of the ski mountain. Not only did this make for a quick and hassle-free commute to/from the ski lifts, but the hotel also offers free ski storage and heated book storage. With the gondola and free shuttles from the hotel, we only used the rental car once to run to the grocery store after arriving.

The building is new, and the amenities are all excellent, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The outdoor pool is heated, along with 3 or 4 hot tubs. There is also a BBQ area and fire pit for guest use. The gym was well above average for a hotel, and fairly complete, which handled a crowd fairly well, as there are multiple treadmills/bikes.

Overall, I would highly recommend staying here, and will DEFINITELY return myself.

I was hoping that the Trailhead Lodge would meet all the expectations and it did. Great facilities with the gondola right next to the hotel allowed for convenient transport to and from the mountains. We rented a car and that was completely unnecessary. The shuttle get you to all the places you need to go. We also enjoyed the hot tub. The staff is helpful and extremely friendly.

We just got back from a wonderful week skiing in Steamboat. The snow, the people, and our accommodations at Trailhead Lodge were top notch. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit # 3122. The condos are brand new and have beautiful furnishings, a fitness center, 3 grotto type hot tops, a heated pool, and great kitchen appliances. The owners of this condo added some extras which made cooking easier of my wife. There was a brand new slow cooker to use so there was always some hot soup or chili on the days we came down from the mountain for lunch. There were plenty of baking dishes also. Trailhead Lodge has its own gondola which made it so easy to go skiing. The staff was always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this property and the unit we stayed in. We definitely plan on coming back next year and hopefully this coming summer.

Trailhead Lodge
The Trailhead Lodge makes taking a winter vacation so easy...ski storage at the front door, overnight boot dryers, private gondola (runs 8-5 daily), knowledgable staff, shuttle from 8 am to 11 pm every day, etc. We enjoyed our stay so much. We rented the 1 bedroom 1 bathroom and it was perfect for two people. The full kitchen and dining area would have made it very easy to cook every meal. A humidifier was provided which we used the first night but didn't need the rest of our trip. You cannot hear walking or talking above or around you as we were on the 4th floor out of 5 floors. We took the shuttle each night to go downtown. It runs every 30 minutes on the top and bottom of the hour.
Downtown Steamboat
We loved the Ghost Ranch Saloon. It is a great live music venue and they have excellent food. We also liked Old Town Tavern and Tap House Pub. We heard that Giovanni's was really good but did not get a chance to visit.
Ski Equipment Rental
We rented our ski equipment from Sport Stalker and they gave us a 10% discount for staying at Trailhead. They were very attentive and knowledgable and fit us perfectly. They have lockers available for $2. Also they store your skis for free at night if you don't want to carry them back to hotel on the Gondola. This was my first time skiing and they worked with me to figure out my best plan of action (shorter skis and a helmet).
