We just got back from our trip to Breckenridge, Co. This was our third year in a row staying in Breckenridge, but the first time in three years we had to stay at a different hotel.
I was pretty hesitant to stay elsewhere. Why you ask? I'm a creature of habit, I like what I know, but unfortunately our usual hotel/condo decided to throw caution to the wind and triple their prices, so we had to improvise. Needless to say, I wasn't thrilled when we had to look for an alternate place to stay for our ski trip.
After lots of research, using tripadvisor.com, google, price comparison, etc. I found a great deal online for Wedgewood Lodge. The reviews seemed pretty good, location appeared to be great, and the views looked awesome. So with a click of a button our fate was sealed and we booked our stay at Wedgewood Lodge.
When we arrived at the hotel, the outside appeared to be exactly as advertised. The property (with snow) was nicely maintained and the parking under the lodge was convenient. Check-in was a breeze, I didn't catch the lady's name, but she was helpful and since we arrived early, she said they'd call us when our room was ready. She was nice enough to store our luggage, so we could walk to grab some lunch.
On a side note, the lobby was lovely (decorated for Christmas). Wedgewood also has a nice common area, fully equipped with a fireplace, tables, games, movies, etc.
An hour later we received a call and we headed back to grab our keys and go to our room. We stayed in a studio room, which had all the basic necessities one needs for a five day stay: full kitchen (refrigerator, microwave, stove, oven, pots, pans, coffee maker, etc.), bed, couch, recliner, porch, couch, TV, table, and bathroom. The best part of the room was the view from the porch. We had a wonderful view of the mountains.
The bed was comfortable, as was the room. The only complaint I have is the room's bathtub. While I only showered, the tub didn't drain properly and the shower pressure wasn't great. Did we let the front desk know? No, because I didn't want to be bothered, but just an FYI to Tonti Management, please check on the shower/tub in room 310.
Other than that, our stay was great. Wedgewood is a short walk to town (restaurants, shops, etc.) and an even shorter walk to the ski lift (4 o'clock run), so if you own/rent your skis, you have a shorter walk to hit the slopes.
Pros: Great views, comfortable rooms, helpful/pleasant staff, close to town and gondolas.
Cons: Bathroom tub didn't drain (Hey folks, this isn't a deal breaker).
Would I come back? You betcha.
