Stayed in 8520 on fourth floor. I'll start with the positives. Underground heated parking was ideal and very convenient. Dakota Lodge was easy walk to ski lifts and just a few steps to the shops and restaurants in River Run village. Nice hot tubs and heated pool. Elevator was quick. Our room had great view of the slopes. Also it was well stocked with basic amenities ( plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, dish washing detergent, etc.) next door to laundry and stairs. I was worried it would be loud since we faced very popular hot tub area, but 10 pm to 8 am quiet hours were adhered to so no problems there. Several cozy fire pits to gather around in river run village. Great well stocked little general store just beyond the pool area with good inventory of groceries, liquor and gifts. Appreciated the extra blankets, pillows and fans in the closets. 2 baths were both spacious and well appointed with deep tubs. Booking through Summit County Mtn Resorts was great- we enjoyed good discounts on lift tix and ski equipment rental.
Negatives: our unit was not very clean. Rugs were filthy, floors were sticky, countertops were dirty upon arrival. Bedding was substandard. The cabinets were well stocked but left no place to put our food away so we had to pile everything on the counters. One of the stove burners didn't work. There were 7 remotes in the unit for three tvs (one in each bedroom and one in living room). Instructions for using the living room tv were wrong. TV reception in bunk room was very poor. 2 of the 3 washing machines in the building were broken throughout our stay. We called first night for help with tvs and other concerns. We were told someone was on their way but they never came.
Would we stay there again? Yes. Pros outweighed the cons.
