Great place.. Great location

We stayed for a long weekend and got in really late thursday night. My only complaint is that I didnt not orginally know I was supposed to check in at an alternate location. Once we figured that out it was smooth sailing!

Weekend getaway

We own a place in Breckenridge but it is under renovation. So we had to find somewhere else to stay. The studio suite #212 was clean, nicely decorated, and well stocked. I had read from others that the room temperatures tend to be too hot but our unit had a fan which worked well at night. The only negative feedback is the mechanism to convert the tub faucet to shower is hard to locate. It would be helpful to have a sign in the bathroom to explain this device. We would stay here again!

Some might like it hot

Let me start by saying that this room was like a sauna. If you like to live in an 80+ degree environment, then look no further. I had the furnace turned off, and it was still hot. A call to maintenance resulted in a note on our door stating that the smaller condos "run warm" and that we should open a window if we are hot. Give me a break. Also, you have to check in and out at the office on the north end of main street. This was not mentioned anywhere in our travel itinerary and we had a late check in, so it took us about an hour to figure out what we were suppose to do. Aside from those bad aspects, the room was otherwise nice, the heated, free parking was awesome, and he proximity to the Snowflake lift was rockstar. If we could have had some autonomy over the climate control and check-in/out wouldn't have been such a circus, this place would get 5 stars.

Easter ski getaway

The hotel is in a great location, very central. The room was small and extremely hot. The sofa bed definitely needs a new mattress and since we had no balcony it felt a little enclosed. We did not see any member of staff. For the time we were there it was acceptable, the ski ing really made up for the accommodation.

Would Stay Again

We had a good experience at Riverbend. Our unit was nice, updated and clean. The location was great with the Snowflake lift located just behind the building. We loved having the garage access and the ski locker for our equipment. Our only complaint was that our unit was so HOT. We had the window open most of the time (even at night with the temps 9 degrees!).

Decent place for ski in/ski out

Overall, somewhat ordinary place. Pluses: Location right next to lift. Minuses: Room too hot! Something wrong with the heating in the building. We had to open a window in 8 degree weather just to get the room comfortable. Room layout kind of weird. Kitchenette was tiny, hardly able to prepare a meal. TV/DVD messed up. I had to re-wire from one configuration to another to watch TV or DVDs. No simple switch box to change from one to the other.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

There really was no night life to speak of in Breckenridge. Dining was great, but no place to dance. I guess next time we would try driving to frisco.

Riverbend Lodge - Breckenridge, CO

This was a great place to stay. Plenty of room for the two of us, clean, easily accessible and nicely decorated. Only 2 complaints - first is that we were supposed to "check-in" at the office of the management company in downtown Breckenridge [...]. Only other complaint is that due to the room layout the bedroom area was quite far away from the window. Since we stayed in the summer and there was no air conditioning, it was too hot for my husband to sleep in the bed and he ended up having to sleep on the pull-out couch every night. Kind of a bummer, but otherwise it was a wonderful place to stay.

We loved panning for gold and touring the Country Boy Mine just outside of Breckenridge. I could have spent the whole day looking for gold!

quiet ski trip

Nice enough studio room. A little run down, but had everything that we needed. It really is an easy ski out, but you have to take a long somewhat flat ski trail to ski in (might be hard on a snowboard). Room would fit a couple with two small kids, but I think 4 adults would be a little cramped. We were able to make breakfast and lunch in the room and saved lots of $! We would stay again if the price is right.

We liked the steak and rib (bird logo) on main street. The soup was so good! You can use the bus system (it stops right by the ski lift) but it is a little confusing and stops 2x per hour.
