We booked this through RCI. Having been to breckenridge previously, we knew what to expect...but the price was right and we go to Breck for the skiing and don't spend much time in the room so it was fine. We had the 2 BR with loft. There were on ly 3 of us but it could have easily slept 6 comfortably.
On the plus side...close to town, on the shuttle route, full kitchen (although we had to get missing utensils from management), roomy, clean, comfy beds, nice towels, after hours check in is easy.
The cons:Parking is outside, (once we get to Breck, we park our car and use the shuttle to get around), the building is a bit dated, decor is not upscale, management is down the block, can be a bit noisy in the hallway, no common areas. No elevator so if you can't do stairs, look elsewhere...jacuzzi was downstairs in a basement like area that has been converted to a jacuzzi/tv area...i prefer the hot tub to be outside.
This is a condo not a resort, so there are no real "resort amenities" however Breckenridge the mountain and the town more than make up for this lack. Downtown is less than 5 minutes walking (slowly, in the snow), and the ski hill is easily accesible by walking 10-15 mins or shuttle. So, you are paying for the location more than anything. All in all, it was a perfectly fine value for the exchange fee we paid.
There is a small grocery a block away or city market (for a better selection) is at the other end of town --maybe 2 miles--be sure to ask for the city market frequent shopper card to get discounts.
