This is a very easy place to stay--good location. No frills but exactly what we needed for a quick ski trip. I would stay again

This is a great place for a quick getaway, no frills, but has everything you need for a ski weekend. Great location.

Older hotel, but great location and friendly staff and guests.

I initially had concerns about staying here when I realized the unit had a murphy bed. To my relief, the bed was quite comfortable, the sport studio unit was updated and exceeded my expectations. We had a great time and would stay again!

We stayed in studio with 2yo daughter. Overall clean but dated kitchen. Bed dropped down from wall and was comfy, daughter slept on couch that did have bed in it but we kept it closed. Towels brought between our 2 night stay but room not cleaned or straightened up. Super easy access to cat walk behind hotel lead to base of WP. Buses come every 15-20 to take into base as well. 2 big hot tubs were nice and heated pool as well. Overall a nice stay. Restaurant didn't open til 4 though so no breakfast available

The location is within walking distance to the Winter Park Lodge Resort and the room had a cozy cottage feel with an awesome full kitchen. My family is already planning our next vacation here!

When the one employee at the counter wasn't on break, she was friendly. The appliances were very outdated and the knobs on the stove were all mixed up. The television was from the 80s and the color was not good. Not a lot to do in the summer as everything was closed at the hotel.

Location was good if it only had a courtesy bus to town, which is fairly close. When renting through a private owner its hard to get sheets and towels. Not told I had to go somewhere else to check-in so I went to the resort to check in, the staff checked me in only because we did not have a car to go back and fourth to check in. No breakfast or lunch at the hotel only dinner, so breakfast was a mission. Hotel staff was nice but didn't deal with private owners rentals only direct Resort rentals. They said they where limited to what they can do with individual renters. I waned one more hour to check out later and I had to call the renters place to be approved.

There was no 24 hour check in...it took 3 hours for a guy who could barely speak English to bring us to our room after spending 2 hours to get him to come to the resort. Then he didn't have the codes to get in and that took another hour at 1:00 AM. Ski in - ski out is loosely termed there is one path that comes in and out of the resort. The room was OK with a hideaway bed.

We stayed at the Iron Horse for a long ski weekend and it was amazing! The ski in/ski out option couldn't have been better. There is shuttle service if a blue isn't where your skill level is at! The facility was clean and the front desk people were friendly. We did have an issue with the bathroom light burning out. We called twice to have it replaced and it never was but otherwise our stay was great. The resort is in a perfect location to the mountain and you can easily drive into town. Caution - don't rely on local cab service to get you to and from places as they are not reliable. I was nervous about the size of the condo considering we chose the studio option and it has a Murphy bed but I have to say that there was plenty of room for two people and I would absolutely stay there again!

It was a great location and a beautiful, fully outfitted condo. Because it was the off-season (right after Labor Day), there was no front desk staff at all so we had to check in at a different location. A bit of a pain especially if we needed anything. But otherwise it was great and a bargain. Very quiet and a good place to relax, rest up, take a hike, and enjoy some small town activities during the off-season.

This was a ski trip (Our first vacation). Orginally thought from web site we were getting one bedroom then found out after booking in small print that the rate was for studio.

Slope-side resort, has its own bus stop to get into town after skiing. Front desk staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Indoor-outdoor pool and 2 large outdoor hot tubs were great to be in on a cold snowy evening. Room (suite) was very comfortable for 2. It is the best deal for slopeside rooms in Winter Park. Had to go into town for dining. An easy free bus ride.

This was a great time of year to get a rest full weekend away from it all. If you are looking for a romantic setting poolside this is the spot.

The Iron Horse Resort was comfortable but amenities were scarce. The hotel staff was all of one person and the dining facilities were minimal at best. Keep in mind that this is a hotel in a snow skiing town during the middle of the summer.

The Iron Horse was perfect for our snowboarding excursion. It provided free storage of our boards, a ski-in ski-out green down to the main lifts. We arrived at 12:00 on a Sat and our room was already ready and we were allowed to check-in instead of having to store our gear and wait till 4. All the staff was very courteous from the front desk, waitresses, bartenders, and maids. We had 3 of us in a studio suite while it was small it was by no means cramped, the pull out couch and the murphy bed are very comfortable and spacious. They were ample cuboard/closet space to stash our stuff to get it out of the way. Green Bus Line picks up to take you down to lift lines or into town for shopping/eating which is really handy so no car was necessary. Would definitely stay there again on our next trip!

It was just off a little green run, nicely tucked in the mountain away from all the commotion of the base. The hot tubs were really nice and the onsite massage therapist was the best I've ever had.
