great place, great bar, good location. Didnt understand we were getting a small room with no tv. No tv no problem but would like a little larger room. Not enough parking spaces for hotel residents. Got a ticket parking across the street where I thought it was ok, but wasnt

The hotel was very nicely kept and had friendly staff. Our room was very spacious and had a beautiful view of the mountains. The only downside was the limited parking at the hotel.

Besides the inconvenience I had in the checking, the staff was quick to make sure everything was fine and fixed, they even gave me a free drink at the bar. The hotel is very nice, good rooms, shared kitchen very well equipped, there is a gear room for your snowboard/skii, I think the best thing is the location near by the best mountains of the region (vail, keystone, Breckenridge, breaver creek...), fair price, the hot tube is really nice and the staff is very helpful.

First impressions were awesome. I did not get in until 5 AM and Dylan went over and beyond to help me with my stuff and get settled in my room when I ski luxurious hotels are not a priority but the Pad exceeded expectations. My single room was larger than most standard hotel rooms and extremely comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating.. Being an older person. I did not feel out of place staying in a hostel and the location cannot be beat as it is centered in between five major ski resorts. The A bar had a great scene at nights, and there are great dining options all around. I am definitely coming back.
