After a great stay last year, we couldn't wait to return! It was so nice to be welcomed by many of the staff who remembered us from last year. The facilities are fantastic-the hot beverage bar in the lobby was a favorite of our daughter who loved having hot chocolate after playing in the snow, swimming and hot tubbing or skiing. The Trailhead shuttle was super fast picking us up at the Ice Castle when we were freezing! Our only recommendation would be to add recycling containers in the units to make separating trash and recyclables easier. Our condo was wonderful-the beds were comfortable, kitchen was well equipped and our view was incredible. Already looking forward to our next visit. Many thanks to the great staff for making our stay so great.

Room Tip: Fifth floor is great-higher ceilings and no one overhead!

Trailhead Lodge was great. Access to the slopes couldn't have been easier via the adjacent gondola and the boot room with ventilated shelves was a nice touch. We had a studio room for two of us and it was well sized but could have used some additional storage. I would recommend and return.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review of your recent experience at Trailhead Lodge. I am pleased to see you found our property to have great slope access and a friendly staff. Our boot drying room is certainly a great feature after a long day on the mountain. Please come back and see us again upon your next visit to Steamboat.-Todd Siefken-

My family and I vacationed in Steamboat springs for a week 2 winters in a row. We decided to give Trailhead Lodge a try due to all the good reviews from Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. From beginning to end, we were always well treated by an attentive staff.

The public areas of the lodge were always meticulously clean and our rooms were roomy with all the modern conveniences. We were upgraded from a studio to a one bedroom because of a travel deal we are enrolled in. Trailhead lodge didn't balk about it or try to dodge it. With availability they happily upgraded us. It was a day late but I believe there was just some misunderstanding. They apologized for it and we were were moved early the next day before our day of skiing even began. Even the studio room was nicely appointed and would have been a bit tight for two people but the 1 bedroom was WAY more comfortable and we were so happy to have been upgraded.

There is a free gondola from the entrance of the lodge that gets you to base of the ski resort. Your skis/board are housed in a rack right in front of the lodge so that you never have to carry your gear very far. Your boots are stored in a separate room with boot dryer racks. Both VERY NICE perk so you don't have to shlep all your crap back up to your room. You wouldn't want to anyway with the nice hardwood like floors in your room.

There were 24 hour hot fluids like coffee,tea, hot chocolate available in the lobby. Breakfast time, there were donuts available as well. There was a substantial outdoor heated pool. My husband used the hot tubs( I think there were 3)every evening after skiing. Warning....highly chlorinated! He smelled of chlorine for the rest of the night even after a shower. The gym facility was very nice. It had up to date cardio machines, free weights and weight machines. There were barbecue grills outside available for times you may not want to cook inside.

The free shuttle was another nice perk. No worries about renting a car to get around. In the lodge, you just call to schedule the shuttle and it will take you to the market to shop for food or into town to visit and shop or for restaurant reservations. Outside, If you plan it just right, you don't even have to wait long for the shuttles to come pick you up. One afternoon, the shuttle bypassed us twice and thus we ended up waiting about 45 min total for the shuttle to finally pick us up. That sucked, because it was uber cold that day. When we got back to the lodge, management called and again apologized for the miscommunication.

The kitchens in these condos are beautiful and for the most part well stocked as far as pots and pans and coking utensils. I mean we are talking about luxury 2 bedroom 2 bath condos, not a dinky motel room. We found that if we wanted to cook in, we woud need to buy all our seasonings as well. Our room didn't even have salt and pepper. We called down for them and they did bring that up. Usually condos have a kitchen that is somewhat stocked with some cooking oils and spices. We had to go buy everything and then what do with the extra? Drag it back home in our luggage or waste it and toss it?? So, that was annoying!

Overall, we had a wonderful stay at the Trailhead Lodge and we would gladly come back , but be prepared to bring our kitchen cooking needs.

Room Tip: We were in room 3112 and in the bedroom, we pretty much heard water running through a "water he...

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review of your recent experience at Trailhead Lodge. I was pleased to read that you found Trailhead to be meticulously clean, the staff was attentive to your needs, and that you had a wonderful stay. I appreciate your comments regarding our hot tubs and our unit spices. Our automatic feeders normally hold the chlorine levels very stable but they do require adjustments periodically and I will make our maintenance department aware. I hope to have you with us when you travel to Steamboat again.

Trailhead Lodge is a great place to stay while in Steamboat Springs. Private gondola right to the base, free shuttle, most courteous staff i have ever experienced, modern decor, great ammenities, etc. Could go on and on. This was our 3rd stay at Trailhead, and we have been coming to Steamboat since the 80's. We are going back again this year and staying in the the same unit, which we request, 3122. Great two bedroom unit, and we always feel like we are home. Can't really say enough good things about Trailhead. Give it a try. Don't think you will be disappointed.

Room Tip: 3122 is a great unit. Large, with very nice views. All new stainless applicances, beautiful decor...

Best thing about this place was the great location with gondola right at our door and super friendly staff - Trailhead was a gem. Well fitted out rooms with all the mod cons and tasteful decor made it a great holiday for our family of 4. The free shuttle was always ready to go with a friendly smile from the drivers who were very knowledgeable about the area and facilities. Shops close and a wonderful supermarket full of all the american food items my kids were dying to try (Twinkies, Cheerios etc) Our kitchen could have done with a few more utensils like a large salad bowl and some platters as we often ate in and catered for our friends too - but just a minor point. All in all, yes we would go back.

Room Tip: Rooms are only serviced every second day so you may need to do a bit of tidying yourself if you are...

If you want easy access to the slopes, an outdoor pool and hot tub and an overall great place to stay choose Trailhead Lodge. Upon on arrival we were greeted by friendly front desk personnel and helped with our bags. With ski and boot storage (heated with dryers) we never had to carry our gear far. After skiing there was the pool and hot tub along with a game room.

We had rented a car, but don't think we needed it as there is a van that will take you wherever you need to go. We chose a 1 bedroom plus den for two adults and a 16 year old. The condo was well designed and spacious. When we return to Steamboat we will be coming back to Trailhead Lodge too! Thanks for an awesome stay.

We just returned from our second stay at the Trailhead Lodge and another memorable experience! The accomodations provide high quality comfort and and are very convenient! We were there during the busy President's Day holiday weekend and the Trialhead lodge offered us a great place to retreat from the crowds while offering easy and quick access to the mountain and all the things Steamboat has to offer.

The staff is GREAT! We were pleased to see many faces we recognized from the previous year stay - I think that speaks volumes for the place. The staff is very personable and they make everything easy for you during your stay. The other guests staying there were also so polite and friendly.

This is the best place Steamboat has to offer for a great ski weekend for families. We already plan to return again next year!

Room Tip: If you need a little extra space for family, the one bedroom with Den is perfect. Rooms are very spa...
