Great for families, close to Beaver Creek VillagePosted Feb 19, 2013
Pros: The in room fireplace was awesome along with the view of the mountain.
Cons: Some of the furnishings were a little dated, but the room had everything needed and was very comfortable.
Location: Great location close to Beaver Creek Village. Close enough to walk if you don't have much to carry, or a very short shuttle ride away.
Some of the furnishings in the room are a little dated, but the view and location are terrific. We shopped in town for groceries and made breakfast in the room each morning. The kids loved the pool and the adults (and kids) loved the outdoor hot tub. The indoor hot tub was a little too hot if anything, but still nice after a day of skiing. The food was very good from the Black Diamond Bistro and they were good enough to box up our meal when our daughters were too tired to make it until the food came out from the kitchen (it didn't take too long, the kids were just exhausted from a full day of skiing after travelling in the night before). We didn't even make it to the game room or spa. The shuttle drivers and bellmen were extremely friendly and helpful too. We had a terrific stay and would come back as soon as we can.
great location to ski lift...20 yards awayPosted Jan 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
perfect ski in ski out location. Very typical 1980's style finish-out of interior with pickled cabinetry, formica counters, and outdated furniture. If your looking for elegance stay at the Ritz and pay twice as much. If your a pure skier on a budget (not concerned about newness) this is a perfect location!

Borders Lodge Beaver CreekPosted Mar 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
Overall excellent. Unit is nice location with easy access to village and ski runs. But these comments refer to our specific room Upper Borders 203. This condo unit was quite satisfactory with the following exceptions: Poor reading lights in all rooms. Other than dining chairs not very comfortable seating. Bedroom mattress needs update.

Ski in/ Ski Out Convenience at Competitive PricingPosted Feb 15, 2012 on Hotels.com
Me: Avid skier. Avid traveler. Discriminating taste. First time visiting Beaver Creek. Although the condos were all sold out, we were able to check in early (like 4 hours early). The staff was exceptionally helpful over the duration of our stay. We did our research and, honestly, were a bit worried about the type of condo we would wind up with for a 5 night vacation. Upon entering the condo we were blown away at the level of polish, cozy but high end finishes, the level of furnishings (including cookware, plates, variety of glasses, LCD TVs, etc.), and, of course, the view. I understand that these are individually owned condos and others may have had worse luck then we but the niceness of the suite really made our trip. You could tell that this was a place where a family spends their time and enjoys their own vacations when not renting out to others. There were a few board games and even a book or two in the TV console. Squashing a few rumors, the location of The Borders Lodge relative to BC Village is not too far of a walk. My fiancé and I are in our early thirties as were the other couple accompanying us on this trip. Although a slight uphill grade when walking from the lodge to Village for breakfast (none onsite) or lift tickets, it was not enough to make us think twice about taking the shuttle. We did see several people waiting for the shuttle so it does come by regularly but we never used it and found the walk pleasant. The location of The Borders Lodge for skiing purposes was fantastic. Walk down the hall to the ski lockers holding all of your gear, strap in, and cruise 20 yards to the Elkhorn Lift. Tip: Lift tickets are not checked here (ever) so you can then ride over to either Bachelor's Gulch or Beaver Creek base to purchase lift tickets. I would suggest Bachelor's Gulch for a drink at the Ritz Carlton and a quick jaunt inside instead of having to unbuckle all of your gear and take an escalator down to the purchase counter in Beaver Creek Village. At the end of the day you can either follow the Elkhorn Lift down or, if you are enjoying après ski drinks at The Chop House, you can traverse over (most of it is downhill) and wind up right by the ski lockers. Likewise, you can ski through town and end up directly across the street (i.e., across Village Road) from the Borders and simply walk up the driveway. We found any of these solutions extremely convenient. Positives: Free coffee, tea, and water with paper to-go cups and lids available in the lobby throughout the day along with snack bars to take on the mountain with you. There is always a fire in the fireplace in the lobby to provide a warm feel. The hot tub and pool were both very warm and the walkways to them were heated so you don't have to worry about running through snow to get to the tub. There is free garage parking onsite with elevator access free wireless internet which was a tad but slow. No major complaints though. Any of the front desk agents also served as concierges and ready, willing, and able to answer all of our questions and make appropriate suggestions. The gas fireplace in the living room got a workout over our stay and was a very nice touch. Also, small details like a sock/ shoe warmer in the closet were nice. Negatives: none of the dehumidifiers worked and, although management was happy to bring us new ones, it was unfortunate that not one out of 6 worked. Management was happy to replace a light bulb when informed one was out. Master Bedroom. King bed. LCD TV with DVD player and Cable. Large closet with additional blankets. Direct access to outdoor balcony. Ample storage area and coat hangers. Working lamps and large wall mirror. Perfect. Second Bedroom. I would have posted pictures of this but was not allowed enough slots by Trip Advisor! When booking via Hotels.com I requested the 2 bedroom with a king bed and then a queen bed but, when checking in, we received the suite with a king bed and two twin beds pushed together to make a king. Upon inquiry I was informed that the suite we wound up in was finished out much nicer with better views. Additionally, just about 100% of the condos have the two twin bed set-up to increase the heads accommodated and pushing them together is very common when 2 couples are traveling. Our counterparts had no complaints on this arrangement. They had their own full bathroom which was also accessible from the main living area. The closet space here was diminished by a stackable washer/ dryer combo, which was not used but nice to have onsite. This room also housed an LCD TV with DVD player and cable. Beaver Creek Tips: If renting, head to Sports Authority down the hill for $20/ day rentals ($40/ day if demos) and usually whatever you left at home is on sale. Christy's Sports is usually overpriced. There is an in-town (BC Village) liquor store and small grocery located around the ice rink if you want to stock the condo up with necessities. Although no breakfast served onsite, there are several great spots around the base you can quickly grab something for a quick bite or a nice breakfast if you prefer. Everything in my rating received a rating of Excellent except for the following and here's why: Value: It is very good for Beaver Creek but, as mentioned by others, Beaver Creek is expensive. I've skied Aspen and think I prefer Beaver Creek for the money. Sleep Quality: The beds were very comfortable and there were no sound issues but this section receives a less than perfect score due to the humidifiers not working properly. Location: Again, perfect for us but there are places closer to the Village (more expensive though) which may better suit other travelers (older or with children possibly). Overall, none of the downfalls surpassed the upsides for us and we will surely take a long hard look at booking at the Borders again next season at our new favorite mountain in Colorado. Happy Travels from Austin, Tx!
