Our Stay at the Pines was great. The unit slept 6 adults and 2 children very well and the location was perfect. The bus lines were within a 3 minute walk and the Safeway OR City Market was only 5 minutes walking as well.
The unit was had a large open area and was updated fairly well. For the Price we were not let down. This was not a super luxury rental, but instead a phenomenal getaway for about half the price of many other units. Beds were comfy and the linens were fresh and clean.
The units are all individually owner and/or operated, so there may be differences in each unit. Our unit did not have updated TVs and the kitchen knives were lousy, but we made do-- TV was not an issue-- too much to do in Steamboat to worry about television.
I have stayed all over the mountain and I think the Pines may be the single best priced option for a group, even during high season!
