What they don't make clear is that these units are privately owned, so you are renting somebody's home. We were in unit 1615 with a direct view of the Zephyr lift. You could not ask for a better location for skiing.
We arrived to find three bulbs burned out in the kitchen and the toilet full of toilet paper and clogged. They came right away and corrected these issues. After 2 days of no maid service we called to find out they don't do maid service. I guess charging only $800 per night does not leave enough profit margin to provide maid service.
We rented a unit that sleeps 6 but they only allowed one car to park on the property. We had to park our other car an uncomfortably long way up the hill at another hotel.
The restaurants in walking distance were all pretty basic fare. There is rumored to be a fine dining place up the lift (The Lodge at Sunspot) but you needed a reservation. After calling the restaurant several times during business hours and leaving messages we concluded they were either out of business or didn't know how to answer a phone.
The unit was very nice. However, we expected a hotel experience and received nothing close. If you are just looking for a nice clean place near the slopes with no expectations of service for a significant amount of money, this is the place for you. We left very disappointed and will not go back. If you can get a room for about $200 I can see value, but at these prices you feel a bit cheated.
