Nice, clean place in a super-convenient location. We stayed in room 105 I believe, which was an end unit. The only negative of this unit is that the garage is directly beneath the master bedroom and when it goes up or down it squeaks like crazy. As for location, I believe it is great. You are a short ski run down to the gondola, and instead of paying $9 for a hamburger on the slopes you can ski down for a lunch and a break in the room. Our room was a little dated, but immaculate. Also, housekeeping comes every-day whereas in many other ski areas I've been they may only come once or twice to freshen the room up. They cleaned our kitchen daily, and we were four sloppy guys not too keen on housework. They have two shuttles that take you around the mountain if you need transportation and you can call in advance for a pickup from your restaurant or bar when you're done. If you're flying in to ski, you really don't need a rental car at all. The downtown area is close, although I am not sure if they will drive you out there with shuttle bus (maybe only around the bottom of the mountain?). Pool and two hot tubs are nice and clean. Overall, it is no super luxury palace, but a neat, affordable spot.
