“disappointing”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

this marriott vacation club is not of the same standard as the other Marriott vacation club resorts. It is old, needs renovating, new furniture and especially heating. The heating in the appartments is bad, couldn't get the temperature in the room above 65-67F without using the oven as a heater.
Furniture is worn, beds are still comfortable. 1 BR is fine for 2, extra sofa for another person but that is it, 2 bathrooms could use update as well.
Lodge is very convienient located, very short walk to chairlift and easy to get to village. Friendly staff.
Recommend Relish as a good restaurant but Ember is disappointing.

Room Tip: the higher the better the view is

The one thing this resort has going for it is the proximity to the ski slopes. In that respect, it was very convenient. The slopes were right there, and you could walk to them, though the lift tickets are more expensive there than other areas in town. However, the accommodations were quite INFERIOR compared to your typical Marriott Resort timeshare property. It appeared that the building used to be another hotel, and Marriott did not put much money (if any) into updating or refurbishing it. The living space was small, dark and dingy. The kitchen was super tiny. The halls were dark and dingy, as was the lobby.

The garage had limited parking, and the spaces are very small so it's quite a struggle to even park there (I scraped the side of our rental car doing so). One night during our stay, the parking garage was full and we had to park at a faraway lot where our gated ticket (given to us by the front desk) did not work, so we had to make two trips back to the hotel in an effort to get one that worked. It took over 45 minutes to park that night, and we had to take a shuttle bus back to the hotel. This was terribly inconvenient, especially on a night where the temperature was about zero degrees. Luckily, our kids were old enough to drop off at the hotel and leave alone in the room, as we would not have wanted to subject them to this on such a cold night. We had gotten take-out for dinner and by the time we got back to the room, our food was completely cold. I expected so much more from Marriott!!! This was the WORST MARRIOTT timeshare that we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed at many. I would go back to Breckenridge, but would NOT stay at this Marriott again. It was more like a 3-Star resort than a 5-Star one.

Having said all that, the rooms were clean. If you plan to ski for most of the day and don't care too much about your room as long as it's clean, then this might work out for you. But if you plan to spend time hanging out in your room, then think twice about going there. This resort would benefit from a huge multi million dollar makeover. It is certainly not as nice as most other Marriott Timeshare properties.

I got a fairly good deal on this hotel. They gave us a taller room on the highest floor, which was nice. It is a great location to walk down Main Street and there are some good breakfast places across the street. When I was here there was only one lift open, so we did have to drive down to that but it was only a 5 minute drive or so. I also enjoyed swimming in the pool to the outside and jumping into the hot tub.

We stayed at the Marriott's Mountain Valley Lodge from December 17-21. Had a wonderful time in Breckenridge. We were walking distance from Main Street and did that once or twice a day for shopping and meals. There is such a huge variety of places and we really enjoyed Michael's Italian, Northside Pizza, and others. Blue Moose Cafe was very close and great for breakfast (bring cash.) Back to the hotel. No real complaints. We stayed on the 3rd floor of the Creekside building. Our bed was great and we had a spacious room with a full kitchen. We had a view on Maggie's Pond. The shower had a slightly low water pressure but not too bad. The front desk provided us with a great magazine that detailed all the restaurants to help us choose where to eat! On Wednesday morning they had $5 all you can eat Belgium waffles with a great assortment of toppings. There were a bunch of activities listed each day in the elevator and also a page slipped under our door nightly. Our room got extremely cold even when we had the heater on and they brought us a small space heater that helped. We got our snowboard rentals right at the hotel with the rental place right in the garage. I highly recommend getting the $3 a day insurance for rentals! The staff there was friendly and helpful. You could walk right out of the rental place and hotel to The Maggie and the Quicksilver Super Chair on Peak 9. Great location and highly recommended. We will stay here again next time we come back to Breck!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pond.

This hotel is a property which was recently bought over by Marriott and used as part of their vacation club. Though the property is not as nice as some of the high class Marriott properties, it is still a good overall value. Great location at the top of the town with a convenient walk to downtown shops and restaurants. Many rooms have nice views of the surrounding mountains. Rooms are a bit undersized, but nicely laid out and well equipped with all you need for convenient breakfasts and meals at home. One of the first changeovers was to put in an excellent workout facility similar to other high scale Marriotts. Overall a very good experience.

Room Tip: Beware of the altitude sun...even in fall, your room will bake if you don't pull the heavy curta...

My family went to Breckenridge for a Thanksgiving holiday get away. We had never done this before and did not know what to expect.
We found the Marriott Mountain Valley Lodge a very nice spot for our 5 day stay. While the hotel is in need of some renovations (we were told this was coming very soon), it was still a clean and in fairly good shape.
The staff was excellent and Bethany was especially good.
We stayed in a one bedroom suite. It was a little tight for my family, but we were not "hangin out" in the room.We stayed in the Eagle building, so our view was somewhat obstructed. However, the hot tub and pool offer a great view of the mountains.
We were truly walking distance to Peak 9 and that was great.
It is also a short walk into the town, so we had access to all of the food and shopping.
Even though there were only a few slopes open (due to the lack of snow), this hotel was a fine place for us and we would recommend it to other (but not for larger families).

Room Tip: Ask for room that faces the mountain, if you are getting a one bedroom. Otherwise, ask for higher f...

I must say, this was not what I expected. My stay was short so I really didn't get to enjoy the property as a whole but my impression of the room was not that great. The bed was ok and I am a big bed stickler as far as comfort goes--if I had not been so tired, I don't think that I would have slept very well here. The bathroom was an accessible bath and I didn't expect that as that was not what my reservation was for, but otherwise it was fine. I did enter the hallway for my room directly from the parking garage on the lowest level so that was odd too. The room did have a good view of the frozen pond.
