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.
