It is what it is
We weren't looking for brand new remodels or granite countertops, so this property fit our needs perfectly of relatively lower price even if the design may be dated. Actually the couch and TV have been upgraded since the pictures were taken, so it was a little better than expected. The TV is small as others have noted, but at least it's not an old glass CRT any more. The cable TV is not HD, but at least they had a pretty good package with ESPN. Firewood and kindling was provided, although the little individual built-in electric heaters were more than capable enough; although there isn't one in the 3rd floor bedroom, it was never too cold. The cookware provided was good and complete, although bring your own salt and pepper. We brought our own bright 100W equivalent LED lightbulb for the kitchen area since the 60W incandescent bulb provided was kind of weak for kitchen work -- we find this universally true wherever we rent, so this may just be us. Beds were OK but firm like hotel beds typically are -- no pillowtop. Linens and soap OK. The covered parking on ground level was fantastic, and so was the proximity to the bus stop. All in all we would definitely stay here again.
Mammoth summer trip
One of the toilets was not working so I called to have it fixed and it was fixed the same day. Good service.
Great condo for a ski trip
You can tell this unit has been well used, there are some things that are outdated or worn. However it is listed with this expectation and you can't beat the price and close proximity to the village. Overall my friends and I had a great experience here.
Just a note if you plan on cooking, you may want to bring some of your own kitchenware if you plan to make anything special. Also oil/spices, there aren't any there. We got by just fine and did some grocery store runs, but just FYI for future renters.
Uncomfortable and dusty bargain
The condo is in a good location close to Canyon Lodge but it is extremely out dated and smells like dust. We arrived fairly late (around midnight) with a group of tired kids some of which planned to sleep in the loft.
Unfortunately the entire condo was freezing because the heat was off. The heaters are not controlled by a thermostat, they are just space heaters in the wall. After about an hour with all the heaters on and the place was still freezing I started checking the windows and doors I realized the patio door was unlocked and all of the windows were slightly cracked allowing a little breeze inside.
Long story short, everyone who slept in the loft slept horribly because they couldn't warm up. There isn't a room heater upstairs. I kept reassuring them that the heat will rise and the room will warm up eventually but I was wrong. The following day we wanted to start a fire and the flue was already open which added to my frustration in trying to warm this place up.
Overall this was an uncomfortable place to stay but it was a bargain so in the future we will weigh our priorities to decide if we will ever stay here again.
Nice cozy condo great location .
Awesome location and very spacious!
The condo was perfect for our group of 10. It was a 10 minute walk to the village and there's a bus stop in front of the complex!
