“Good value - great skiing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

The skiing at Steamboat is phenomenal! Thunder mountain condo was perfect for our family. A good value for a full 2 bedrooms. It very quite (low occupancy for some reason) but that was fine with us. Kitchen was small but functional. Cooked many great meals. Beds were comfortable - full size queen in each room. We didn't have to use the pull out, which was nice (pull out sofa would be the third bed - and it had an accordion door for privacy). The furniture seemed relatively new and the bathroom had be recently remodeled. Shuttle to the mountain picked up right at the front door every morning - which was very nice. The city bus is also available with a short walk, but we only used the shuttle.

Nice time until my last two days which had no cable or internet service. Make sure you bring plenty of entertainment as you cannot depend on their cable service to work. Wouldn't stay there if you need an internet connection for work.

2-bedroom condo was very nice. Pros was close to public transportation (<100 yards up the hill), on-site hot tub, and friendly service. Cons were old plumbing (shower water burns when someone flushed the toilet) and couldn't keep the condo temp constant. One nice surprise was that there is an accordian wall so we could close off the area where the fold-out couch was for our older son to sleep. Plenty of room for 4, compared to other "4-person" condos we stayed in. Wi-fi was excellent. We had a huge jacuzzi/tub in our condo - nice option for the on-site jacuzzi downstairs on days we were too sore to walk!

Room Tip: Didn't experience too much intra-room noise despite being the snow skiing season

The apartment we had was wonderful and just the right size for 2 couples. The jacuzzi was just the ticket to relax in as the evenings were a bit colder. Internet was fast and all amenities were just as we expected them to be. I have no real complaints about the place other than it is a bit further outside of the town than I would have hoped. If you stay here, you will be more than comfortable.

We had a two-bedroom and thought it was fantastic. The master bedroom has a huge jacuzzi tub. There are a nice hot tub, sauna and pool table in the common rooms. The guest lounge has a huge stone fireplace with a stack of logs beside it so you can help yourself. Location is quiet and an easy jog to the running path along the Yampa River. The place was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

I exchanged my premium week at a Disney-area property for a week in a studio at Thunder Mountain simply for the access to skiing. While the location is good (not on-mountain, which I would have much preferred), the Inn itself doesn't offer much. The studio is very small, with only a shower and a half-kitchen. It was adequate, but far from an even exchange for my home property. A broken water heater (which flooded my room) forced me into a 2-bedroom unit, equipped with a whirlpool tube and full kitchen, which was roomy, much more updated and a welcome upgrade. Had I spent the entire week in the studio, I'd have been disappointed.

The front desk staff was friendly, but didn't go out of their way to offer any suggestions or ideas. They were helpful, however, in re-locating me in the new unit. This is a small, dated property, with basic amenities which could benefit from a face-lift. However, it's clean and well-maintained within its limitations.

Room Tip: I wouldn't choose a studio unless it was the only room available. Sub-par compared to the other...

The condo was old but clean. The dishes, silverware, pots and pans were the cheapest I'd ever seen - don't want to cook bacon in the frying pan unless you plan to spend time scraping it after soaking.
You are definitely on your own here. We missed a delivery that we had routed to TM and have spent the last month hearing the desk clerk say that they had mailed it on any number of days past. We've written that item off.
This is not a cheap place - so service should be some part of the deal. Spend you money in a place with people who are actually helpful.

Room Tip: Steamboat Springs had had no snow in late November - if you chose to go, make sure that they have sn...
