Wow. That's all I can say. The unit we stayed in had a stove that was partially broken. The lighter/heat control was completely ripped off. There was a hole in the ceiling outside the condo that had a bucket to catch water. The pull out sofa was like sleeping on the ground. Check in was not great. Check in time...

Stayed here in summer for a nearby wedding - honestly considered driving 2 hours home instead of staying in our room. Our first room smelled like a locker room and was decorated like a bad vacation home from the 80s. Carpets were stained, which might've been okay if the bed had clean sheets.

We stayed in Unit #1 -- I don't know if these are individually owned or different. Pros: - short walk across the street from Village and...

I am a pass holder at Kirkwood. I have stayed in multiple lodging facilities and have had great experiences. However, recently, I booked a last minute night at Kirkwood to enjoy fresh snow and were given a room at the Basecamp. The rooms are in need of a major renovation. The carpet and furniture are old and nasty. When I...
