Lifts West lacking
I am new to planing a ski trip using the condo lodging. At the time we planned our trip to Red River, there weren't a lot of lodging options due to the holidays. Searching online, I found Lifts West to seem charming, well located, and promising.
I contacted the property directly, and they described a unit with a king bedroom with bath "off the living area" and a loft area with a queen bed and bath, and a sleeper sofa in the living area. Sounded good for our family of 5.
The first disappointment was that the king bedroom was not private. This should have been clearly described by the management over the phone before I committed the money.
The second disappointment was that the sleeper sofa mattress was unsleepable due to springs poking through.
The next disappointments were general condition of the unit. It was run down, poorly lit, and lacking in basic equipment for the kitchen. For example, the bathroom paint job was just terrible. Painted wallpaper, with the old wallpaper exposed at all edges and corners. The towel racks fell off the wall. The upstairs shower leaked into downstairs. The heat was minimally acceptable. The internet service provided was almost unusable due to slowness and silly 1-hour username/password tickets provided (which you have to go to the office to request).
And finally, the walls are paper thin, allowing you to hear every discussion in the next unit.
I know that condos are "individually owned and therefore have variations in amenities," but this seemed to be an excuse for the management to justify the deficiencies.
On the plus side, underground parking is nice and the lobby was pretty.
