Have you heard of the sneaky practices Grand Lodge has going

I read some previous posts that anyone who books a room through Grand Lodge and you will get one of the 5 bad rooms. I'm really scared that we may end up with one of those ratchet rooms. Has anyone went lately and stayed in any of the rooms that suffered broken utensils and uncleaned rooms?

You might want to read the explanation regarding those, actually 6, rooms that are not managed by the Crested Butte Mt Resort as explained by the manager in her response under this bad review:

tripadvisor.com/…CHECK_RATES_CONT

Particularly note her recommendation:

"If it is your desire to stay in one of the 222 units managed by Crested Butte Mountain Resort, please double check your reservation source prior to finalizing your reservation."

We're in Crested Butte right now & hope you enjoy CB as much as we are!

Any time you have privately owned condos within a condo/hotel complex, there will be varying degrees of maintenance, pricing, remodels/updates. It is always a good idea to check whether you are renting from a resort, a private owner or a management company and if possible, read reviews (and rental policies) for the actual unit number you are considering, whether in Crested Butte or Timbucktoo. I am not implying that individual owners are necessarily better or worse at updating and maintaining their properties...just that it's best to be as informed as possible.

This has nothing to do with Grand Lodge other than the fact that these privately owned units are located in that complex and so the title is misleading. That said, if you book through CBMR then you have nothing to worry about.

We are in the Grand Lodge now and rooms are great! We booked through CBMR and all 8 of us (in two rooms) have loved it. We are 2 adults and 2 kids per room and we have the rooms with the Murphy bed - perfect for the kids. Room is clean and staff has been great. We think its a good value and want to come back next year!

Actually, this situation has been rectified for the most part. There is a lodging company in CB that managed a few rooms at the Grand Lodge, but they now only have one room of the 226 total available. If you call Crested Butte Vacations, the booking agency for the ski area (they manage the entire hotel) you will be guaranteed to get one of the 225 rooms that the hotel manages and all of the services that go with the hotel. Their number is 800-544-8448.
