Great cozy place right on the slopes
My son and I went for a weekend trip to Kirkwood for Spring skiing and met up with some friends who were staying at the Meadows. I wasn’t sure how it would go because Kirkwood is somewhat isolated, the room does not have a kitchen, and there aren’t many food options at Kirkwood. Couple that with Covid restrictions, and it was going to be tough. As it turns out, for a weekend, this location was a good call. We were next to the store, and despite the fact that the prices were outrageously expensive (box of cereal was $10, for example), it was the only place you could get hot breakfast food before hitting the slopes. Anyways, the convenience of being near the store was nice. As for the room itself, it was exactly what we needed: a nice place to crash after skiing for the day. The room was clean, and had everything we needed: towels, sheets, blankets, soap, shampoo, etc. there is a small fridge, and we used that to store some drinks. The Roku TV remote was out of batteries, but we didn’t figure it out until the night before we were going to leave. So, not a big deal as it just meant we were able to get up earlier for the next day; we notified Brianna about it and I’m sure the batteries will be replaced. The only thing that was a little tough was just the entry. We arrived late due to traffic, and initially went to the wrong set of doors to enter the building, and the entry for the building is unlit until you open the doors. Once we figured that out, it was fine. The other thing is just remembering all the codes to get in: the code to get into the elevator area, the code to access the three different units on the floor, the code to access the unit. It is this way for all the units at Kirkwood; this is not a complaint—more a comment on my memory skills. In any event, I had a great time staying at the place, and we would gladly return. Thanks, Brianna for having us!
