“Great less expensive place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for a weekend for the first time in late February in room #10. We have stayed at several other properties in Breckenridge. We found this one by chance while surfing online for places to stay. We had never heard of Skiway before and were pleasantly surprised to see that it was relatively inexpensive for Breckenridge. Skiway feels almost like staying in a friend's nice cozy mountain home and they handed you the keys to the whole place. There is limited parking out front but enough for everyone staying there provided they park correctly, and parking is free. Our room has a comfortable king bed, TV, sofa, bath, microwave, fridge and a balcony. The sink is a separate stand alone vanity in the room apart from the bathroom. The room is a little on the small side but certainly had plenty of room for 2 of us. We had brought a cooler with us to stock the fridge so we never needed to go out to eat. The balcony doesn't directly face the main road but you can see it. There is quite a
bit of traffic on the road but it's only noisy when the balcony doors are open. The room is one of three located on the 2nd floor adjacent to the common area, which is convenient for accessing water, the ice machine, dishes, utensils, cookies, and oatmeal. There is also a TV there, sofas, and a few tables for guests to eat their meals. There was one evening where a group of people came in to watch TV and talk kind of loud after we had gone to bed. The TV is adjacent to our room's wall. We just poked our head out and asked nicely if they could keep it down and they did. Other than that we hardly ever saw anyone in the common area. They also provide robes in the room that are handy for the 2 outdoor hot tubs. The hot tubs are conveniently located out the back door off the 2nd floor and are in very good condition. Remember to take your keys whenever you leave the building because the doors lock behind you. There are several signs reminding guests of this and we appreciated the reminders. The girl working the front desk the few times we saw her was always so nice. Skiway is also very accommodating on check out day. One of us decided to ski that day while the other took the day off. They allow guests to leave their car parked there even after check out, and one of us hung out in the 2nd floor common area while waiting for the other to return from skiing. We really enjoyed staying here and would definitely return. We may opt for a king room on the 3rd floor next time if available to be away from the 2nd floor common area, even though there is no elevator to the 3rd floor.

Nice place
Walking distance to downtown
Small quaint rooms, quiet
By no means is it a ski out place. You either have to take the bus to the slopes or walk to the gondola.
U can ski in, even though we didn't get to do it.
Definitely a more affordable version of ski in/ ski out.
The bed not super comfortable and the pillows outright bad. (Maybe they can read my review and change them)

I stayed in room 2 for 5 nights in early March. The room itself wasn't huge but had two big windows looking out to the ski run back and a really nice balcony. The bed was also very big and comfy and the furnishings were in-fitting with the cosy lodge feel. The location of the lodge is great - it is genuinely ski in and the bus stop is just over the road (about 3-5 minutes in ski boots). The main street is also just 5-10 minutes walk away (downhill going, uphill going back…), which is great. I used the hot tubs on a couple of nights and they were really lovely and hot and not busy. There are nice common rooms to use (which were pretty much deserted during my stay) including tables and a toaster and hot water for making your own breakfast. The room also had a microwave. It was a bit strange not to see any staff during my visit (I checked in at night and collected my key from an envelope on the door) but it was all very efficient and I it didn't cause any problems (I just phoned Kylee from the slopes during the day with one particular query I had). The wifi didn't quite reach the third floor (where my room was) so I had to go to the common room to use it but that wasn't a big problem and I think they might be looking at putting in another router. All in all it was a fab place to stay for a ski break and reasonably priced - I would definitely return.

This place is a hidden gem. It is very close to the free shuttle bus or just walk away to the gondola. The room was very nice with a fireplace and great views from our balcony. It has a nice ski in after the day is over. It was very clean and the common rooms were very nice. I will be going back to this resort from now on.

It is just one of those classic little B & B's but you can walk downtown or to the gondola in 5 minutes. Well maintained and the hot tubs are clean and HOT! Or, if you are like me you can go the the main room at 5am and read the paper or watch sports / news. The price is about right also.

Room Tip: Book Early for the week ends.

When we arrived, Kylie was waiting for us with a Manila folder containing the keys to our dreams. The room was beautiful, conveniently located, and the feeling of being in an updated manor felt incredible while homely at the same time. I would stay here again and again.

Lovely view of the sunset out our balcony the 1st night.....lovely room with beautiful furnishings and fireplace. Totally updated bathroom, fridge, microwave, comfortable bed and couch. Loved the robes and slippers for the hot tub. Unfortunately, I fell and sustained a leg fracture the 1st day and we had to go home. The staff was WONDERFUL about accommodating our need to cancel the next 3 nights and offered to do whatever we needed. Because of their kindness and our brief experience there we can highly recommend this property, We will go back sometime and enjoy the mountains at this location.
