“Nice but not much to it”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

This hotel room was clean and nice, however, nothing is open past 9 and we were told to hurry up if we wanted dinner. (we arrived later due to our travel schedule and was starved) no vending machines other then pop and what we selected, something else came out. Staff was very nice but for what the room cost to what we received in value did not seem worth it. I probably would not stay here again. Downtown Crested Butte was awesome though! And even though we didn't use it, there is a bus that goes downtown from the lodge and back up again so that would be handy.

Room Tip: I wouldn't stay on the side that is facing the little mountain as the bus kept sitting there lou...

My wife and I only planned on staying in CB for 2 days but extended our trip for the full week due to how much we enjoyed the Lodge at Mountaineer Square. We typically stay in town but we found it really nice to be located at the base of the mountain. The rooms will not disappoint - very well decorated, high end features, clean and plenty of space. I have lived in Denver for 7 years and I will say that Crested Butte provides some of the best (if not the best) skiing, camping, biking, 4-wheeling and hiking in the state. Very diverse/cool offering of restaurants in town.

Best hotel at Crested Butte, period!! We have stayed in the Lodge At Mountaineer Square several years in a row and we once again echo all of our comments from the previous visits! This slope side hotel is great. The suites are beautiful; the views of Crested Butte are awesome; walking out your door almost on top of the ski lifts is convenient; and the service ethic is just fantastic. Everyone was helpful, pleasant and appeared honestly interested in making sure we were happy. Our three bedroom suite must have had 31 places to sit, 4 large flat screen TVs, blue ray players in every room, 4 phones, the most comfortable beds/linens, etc. So, when we weren't skiing or shopping we felt surrounded by luxury. Chuck Donnelly is a great General Manager and pays constant attention to his guests needs. The house keepers are polite, efficient, thorough. I haven't even mentioned the great mountain and quaint town. Crested Butte has some of the best back country advanced skiing around, but not at the expense of blue and green trails. My wife is a beginner and she had plenty to ski. I am comfortable with single black diamonds and also skiied all week without getting bored. My daughter was searching for cliffs and woods and never ran out of terrain. And lift lines? Forget it, there are none. In addition, the town of Crested Butte is fun and has a surprising number of great restaurants. We really liked Soupcon, Marchitelli's Noodles, Ryce Asian Bistro, and Wooden Nickel. Uley's Cabin (the ice bar) is another great dinner spot half way up the mountain). Crested Butte might be a little harder to reach then Park City or Vail but it's a great resort and Lodge at Mountaineer Square is the best hotel at the resort!

Room Tip: Don't forget to wander down to the lobby mid afternoon for fresh baked warm cookies. Ask to f...

Greeted nicely. One must pay an extra $20 a day to park in the underground garage which is ridiculous. You can park free on the dirt lot which is a block away. Careful of walking into the wrong hotel coming back for the first time. The Lodge was not occupied very much. In fact we never saw another guest in the hallway or elevator but yet they assigned us a room on the 2nd floor facing an interior courtyard! I called the front desk and within 15 minutes they moved us to the 4th floor facing the mountain which was very nice. Room is nicely decorated though a bit small. They need bigger pillows for bedding but the linens were top rate. The bathroom is poorly designed and lighting is very poor. The lights above the sink were set too low. It is actually dark in the shower. The shower had no holders for soap and shampoo. There was very limited counter space and only one sink thus on,y one person could use the bathroom at a time. They place a ceramic Kleenex holder on top of the toilet and of course I knocked it down and it broke into pieces. I told the front desk about it and they did not charge me. The TV had unusually poor picture quality 90% of the time. HD came in and out and mostly out. The picture was dark and faded. I called the front desk which they were to contact the engineer but they never got back to us. The one gratis lift ticket was nice but the extra resort fee during summer usage was not. The location was great.

LMS does so many things well...good units, great staff, big variety of activities. It was our fourth year to stay and we'll be back. Rare to find this level of staff in a mountain town at this value. Great place for families.

Room Tip: Courtyard or mountain views are good but you don't want to face Gothic Road.

Stayed here for 2 nights as a family with our 14 and 10 year old. We stayed in a 2 BR condo. The rooms were beautiful. Tons of living space in the family room.

The location was great right on the mountain. Everything was super clean too.

Our view was fine - we were on the 2nd floor and though we faced the mountain, we really looked at the Avalanche Restaurant.

Our kids loved the indoor/outdoor pool and the hot tub - though they wished the pool was a bit larger.

I used the fitness center 2 days of my trip and the machines were all great quality.

The staff is very polite and kind.

The only thing I would wish for is a better option for families on sleeping. There is not an option for twin beds or bunks - just sleeping on the couch - which seems defeat the purpose of having a second bedroom.

Overall, we really enjoyed this property and would return.

Four couples stayed in the 4 bedroom Penthouse at The Lodge at Mountaineer Square this past weekend and it was nothing short of awesome! Michele Schmidt of Summit Travel was a dream to work with and also helped some of our other friends find places to stay. Our only regret is that we only stayed one night as we hiked to Aspen the next day. Our room in Aspen cost much more and was the pits! We all want to head back next summer and stay longer in Crested Butte where the wildflowers are beyond incredible!
