Pokolodi Lodge
Ranked #4 of 13 Hotels in Snowmass Village
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 January 2010

A group of my friends and I travel to Snowmass every December - and stayed at the Pokolodi for at least the last 10 years. We are always recognized by the staff and treated very well. The location couldn't be better - right at the village bus stop and about 100 yards from the slopes. Not the newest or fanciest place in Aspen/Snowmass - just the best deal, location and friendly staff. I can't recommend this place too much. We plan on being there again next December. Make sure you take the time to say hello to Dave's dogs, Molly and Maggie.

Clean. Neat. Good value. 100 yards level walk to Snowmass Ski slope and tickets. Room has a small refrigerator. Our rooms had 2 queen beds each. Decent breakfast from 7-9am. Free wireless internet. Free bus shuttles within Snowmass Village and also to Aspen. $100 shuttle (one-way) available to DEN airport. Friendly, helpful front desk. $25 parking fee for our car. Hot tub closed for repairs 2 days during our visit. It's not the Ritz, but we like it!

We stayed at the Pokolodi Lodge for four nights during Christmas week. It was a nice no frills lodge in a convenient location. Short walk right to the Snowmass slopes. Bus stop for Aspen is across the street. Spacious room with small bathroom. Clean with new linens and flat screen tv. Free wireless access and nice breakfast. Cereal, english muffins, juice, oatmeal, etc. No fresh fruit. Nice lobby and helpful front desk. Outdoor pool and Jacuzzi are nice but a cold walk from the room. Overall a nice, comfortable stay.

As German photojournalists we travelled to the other side of the world, looking for a "Once in a lifetime - experience" - to write a report for a german travelmagazine about skiing in Aspen and Snowmass. Well, we were paying 220$ for a room facing the street and the parking area, enjoying the Snowmass traffic and the Caterpillars, which where grooming the parking area from 2am until 6am in the night - no sleep at all - really a "Once in a lifetime - experience"!? But the worst: Four days of really polite requests to get a more quiet room facing the pool area, where simply ignored by the really arrogant Manager, Dave Mercatoris. In his words: "You have booked over the travelagent Hagen Alpin Tours, so you get the room 10$ cheaper... the better rooms facing the pool are reserved for the americans, who come up to Pokolodi Lodge directly and pay cash... - well, no comment on this one! But one is fore sure - it´s time to say "thank you" to this kind of guys - so: "Thank you, Mr. Dave Mercatoris for having us at the Pokolodi Lodge, giving us such a great time, while skiing one of the most beautiful skiing areas in the world..."! However - never again Pokolodi Lodge!!!!

Well, this lodge had a magnificent view. Other than that it was a dump. I always stay at value places so I did not expect much for the $99 price. The room was stifling hot with one ceiling fan. The screen had holes in it but it was better than sweating. A positive is that Pokolodgi is so convenient to RAFTA the Village Mall and the Shuttle and Fannie Hill. So convenience is superb. It is meant for skiers, lots of places to store your ski equipment. Nobody to help you carry your luggage if you are on the 2nd floor. In short I would never go back and would pay an extra $40 for a nicer place. Lots of unhappy people in the AM coffee area.

I traveled with a group to Snowmass and this was the only hotel out of our group negotiated rates that had availability left. Prior to arriving my expectations were very low. I was pleasantly surprised by my room. It was very clean, obviously updated and had several extra amenities. The bathroom had been recently updated with granite countertops, new towel racks and a convenient medicine cabinet. The bedroom had a comfy couch in a alcove, flat screen tv, fridge, microwave and nice thick blankets. The staff was pleasant, helpful and accomodating. Their continental breakfast on the other hand leaves a lot to be desired. They were frequently out of simple things such as spoons....it is a bit hard to eat cereal without a spoon!

A couple of suggestions if you stay here; first you need to book airport shuttles at least 24 hours in advance, make arrangements for a late check-out way in advance and head to the Village Market your first day and pick up breakfast food to keep in your room.

Suggestions to hotel: it would be quite helpful for you to have a hotel specific ski rack transfered to and from snowmass, upgrade your breakfast just a bit, and allowing guests to keep their luggage in the ski equipment storage room would be preferable to your cramped office.
