“Check-in process is terrible.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2010

We arrived at the Snow Flower just after 6:00 p.m. and expected to find someone there to check us in. Instead, there was a sign telling us to go to the Torian Plum to get checked in. After some trouble, we managed to find it and once again, expected to find someone there to check us in. No such luck. It was closed. The front desk area closes at 5:00 p.m. There was a sign just outside the door telling us to use the phone that was there, and call security. So we did. The procedure was that they told us the combination number of one of the lock boxes that was there with our information for getting into our condo. The problem was that no matter how many times we tried, we couldn't open the lock box. So we had to call security again so they could send someone to open the lock box. After a short time, the security person came but he also had trouble opening the lock box. After several tries, he managed to open it, and we then had what we needed. But the whole thing was a huge hassle. We won't stay there again, nor would we recommend it to anyone else.

We stayed in a studio room which was tiny and had a murphy bed. Although I knew we were getting a murphy bed, I had never slept in one before and didn't know what it would be like. This one was uncomfortable and I don't recommend it.

The freezer didn't have an ice maker in it nor did it have ice cube trays, so we couldn't have ice in our drinks other than having to go to another floor to get ice. I see no reason why they could not at least put ice cube trays in the freezer. We tried putting our ice bucket full of ice cubes into the freezer but that didn't work since the whole thing froze as one block of ice.

Also, we didn't get any maid service during our stay, but the maid did manage to open the door to our room, (without knocking first), way before check-out time on the day that we checked out.

Hello coloradohiker12,

It has come to my attention that your recent stay at ResortQuest's Snowflower Condominiums was, needless to say, eventful. Apparently the check-in information you received was incorrect.
I sincerely apologize for the hassle. We appreciate the time you have taken to write a review. Your feedback is reviewed by several managers and staff at our property and is used to evaluate our services so that we can adapt and improve.

The problematic lock-box that complicated matters is currently in the process of being replaced with more a much more user-friendly alternative. We recognized that check-in after-hours needed to be easier considering the guest has been traveling and tired.

I would like to offer my services to reestablish a positive experience next time you visit Steamboat Springs. Please contact me personally via SteamboatInfo@ResortQuest.com.

Regards,
Chris Taylor
Property Manager

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2009

My family and I stayed in the snowflower (207) for 10 days in Feb, 6 adults and a 1.5 year old. We had a great time! The location is perfect, couple of yards from the slopes and very easy to walk. Our 4 bedroom apartment was spacious. The furniture a little old. We used the free internet a lot.

We loved the big hot tub and pool, especially my son. We went there every afernoon. The staff on the front desk was nice and helpfull.
Since we flew in from The Neterlands we did not have a car and we didn't need one, we took the free shuttle everywhere!!

Ok, some negative points: they are building a huge hotel between the snowflower and the slopes, a bit noisy. The old furniture. The outside of the snowflower is not very charming.

Restaurant tips: Three peaks grill!!! Sushihama (the sushi place at the bottum of the slope). Don't go to The Old West Steakhouse!

Since this review as of 8/10, Snow Flower Condominiums no longer have access to the ResortQuest Free Shuttle. The shuttle will not pick up or drop off at this location. There are other transportation options to get around Steamboat. The Snow Flower is located within a short walk (75 paces) to the ski area, the free town bus picks up riders right in front of the Snow Flower Condos and Go Alpine taxis are another great option for getting around town.
Sorry for any inconvenience,

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2007

My family visited Steamboat Springs Colorado the spring break week of March 12th thru the 18th, 2007. We stayed at the Snowflower condominium. I thought the location was wonderful. Right across the parking lot from the Kids Vacation School and steps from the Gondola. Plenty of restaurants nearby, although we did utilize the condo's kitchen for breakfast and most lunches. Saved a considerable amount of money by doing that, as we had two ravenous teen ago boys and a three year old with us.

Our room was located on the ground floor overlooking the mountain off the balcony. The staff was very friendly and helped with every request we had. The cleaning ladies were very good and we returned to a clean condo every afternoon. We used both the heated swimming pool and the hot tub every night. They also provided a continental breakfast in the lobby every morning which was a nice touch.

We were very happy with the wifi in the room that enabled us to remain online on our laptop the entire trip for checking snow reports, etc., not for working! :-)

A couple of stand out restaurants that pleasantly surprised us were (in no particular order) the The Slope Side Bar & Grill (brick oven pizza to die for), the LaMontanna (had elk and seared tuna, yummy) and the Ore House (for buffalo, shrimp and prime ribs). We also ate at one of the Gondola mountain top restaurants for lunch twice and other than the fantastic views and outrageous prices, nothing to write home about.

A couple we went with took a two hour snowmobile trip up to Rabbit Ears Pass and said it was the highlight of their trip. Very reasonable priced also.

All in all a very nice vacation. We are planning to return next year in 2008, but will be going in February as spring break is just CRAZY. Reservations required for everything, long lines, long waits and a ton's of people. We were only able to get our three year old into the ski school 2 out of 4 days, but when she was there, she LOVED it. The girls who worked in the daycare were great and seemed to genuinely care about the kids. The kids went outside and played in the snow, went sledding and had too many activities to even mention. Great value for the dollar and it allowed my husband and I time to ski all day.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Take care.

Stayed at the Snowflower last winter, we were very satisfied with the stay. Loved the location- the closest we've ever stayed to the slopes/ Ski in /ski out is a pleasure. Close to the slopes and shops, yet very quiet at night. The building was clean and well run, Liked the free cable internet in the lobby during the day - ust wish they had it available later in the evening - Apparently they have free wifi all night in the lobby but we didnt bring our laptop. Would stay again.

  • Liked — Location Location Location! versus price.
  • Disliked — free high speed internet access was not available all night long
  • Tips/Secrets — The Mountain Deli across the street has great sandwiches.

My family has stayed at the Snowflower for the last five years. They are located right next to the ski lifts and kids' ski school which means we don't have to take a shuttle every day. The units are priced quite a bit less than ski-in units just across the street. The staff is on-site and very responsive,
the same people have been there for years. We believe that this is the best value in Steamboat.
