My family stayed in one of the townhomes in August 2007 and had a positive experience. The townhomes are privately owned and are in a booking pool through the hotels. The townhome had two bedrooms, fireplace, two bathrooms, complete kitchen and livingroom/dining room area, and garage. The accomofations were clean and very comfortable. There is also a patio backing up to a wooded area. The hotel has a lovely pool area with ahot tub. The hotel is about a 2 block walk to town but while you are on the grounds you feel very secluded. The only negative point, if there was one, is the side where are townhome was located is below a road leading up to the mountain, which made it a litte noisy at night. We are considering retruning in July 2009.
We had two families staying in the 2 bedroom condos. Both were comfortable clean and perfect for what we needed for summer week's stay. Staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. Room was cleaned daily. The location in Breck is excellent for getting to Main Street, about 3-4 blocks away. Also, 2 blocks from the grocery store, and one block from the Peak 8 Gondola. Appears to be a ski-in location during the winter. Free shuttle will pick you up around town. We didn't move our car while we were there because we could either walk through town and back or take the shuttle. The only cons are minor: $20 'resort fee' per day adds up, limited covered parking (in the Winter), I would prefer nicer kitchen utensils, and small TV in our rooms (other condo had flat screens).
The Mountain Thunder Lodge is a terrific place to stay for skiiers. It is a short walk to the gondola which accesses several ski mountains. Best of all, one can ski directly to the Lodge at the end of the day. And at the end of the day, the outside hot tubs were fantastic. Service was terrific. The staff was always very courteous and diligent. Their vans will shuttle you anywhere in town, so conveniently. I normally don't tip at hotels but left a generous tip for the cleaning person because our condo was always so well attended to. When we ski again at Breckenridge, we will definitely stay there. It is first-class!
Great place. Comfortable, easy walk to town. Across the street from gondola for winter skiing. Newer and well kept.
We loved our stay at Mountain Thunder. The condo was lovely and spacious, and we particularly enjoyed the daily maid service and shuttle to EVERYTHING in town. You could literally park in the underground garage and never move your car during the entire stay. Front desk personnel were extremely helpful and the ski locker-included-in-stay was so convenient. Excellent location at base of Peak 8 with a ski-in feature that was great for the last run of the day. We'll definitely be going back to Mountain Thunder!
Beautiful place. We were on our own and really had no need of staff other than housekeeping. Good value and great location and ease of access to Breckenridge shopping and dining. It would have been nicer to have a more comfortable bed and sheets; which were like sleeping on paper on a hospital table. Did not like that we did not have a method of controlling temperature in the room; thus having to leave the windows open at night made for a very noisy night being right against a major road and bus depot. (air conditioning would have been nice; even though it is chilling most evening; it was not during our stay) So a nights rest was not something we were able to obtain. If we had been planning an extended stay; we would have only needed to supply food. All ammenties in the full kitchen were there. Even the corkscrew for a bottle of wine to be shared on the balcony.
We went there on our Spring Break from March 9th through the 19, 2012. It was like having our own private chalet. the staff was extremely friendly and provided all kinds of insight on where to eat and where to hike. We look forward to skiing there again.
I visited in August with my family and this hotel was a great value at that time of year! The nightly rate for a 2BR condo was comparable to a regular hotel room. The room was beautifully decorated, modern/rustic with large rooms and a full kitchen. The beds were very comfortable with nice linens. There were three hot tubs and an outdoor swimming pool, gas BBQ grills and beautiful landscaping around the property. There was no air conditioning, but with daily high temps of 70 degrees, this wasn't an issue. There is a laundry room on each floor with free washer/dryer use. Maid service comes every day, which was a nice surprise at a condo. Hotel staff is super friendly and helpful. It's a walk of a block to the Breck-Connect gondola and a block to get to Main Street. Can't say enough positive things about this hotel.
Ski in / out. The lodge is minutes away from the city lift and convenient to resturants and nightspots. Parking is underground. Staff is very professional and helpful
One Ski HIll Place - Rock Resort is 'out of this world'...the accomodations were superb. Kitchen was fully equipped, right down to a wisk. The staff was friendly; remembered our names; helped us with all of our gear, etc. One of the best features of the resort is where it is located: right at the peak. No hassle getting to and from the mountain. We loved it!
We loved the place. Staff was great, location could not be beat. Our kids had a wonderful time at the Fun Park right outside our door!
