This is a great location to stay if you are skiing or if you want to be close to town. Shuttle service is very easy and convenient although underground parking is also available. The units are a nice size with everything you need to stay comfortably for a week or more.
We have stayed at the Grand Lodge at Peak 7 previously but the snow always seemed to be better on Peak 8 & 9. Our decsision to stay at Grand Timber Lodge has been a huge mistake. We are currently staying at the resort as I write this review and though it’s only been 24 hours and I know I will find other upsetting things as the week goes on I’m frustrated. The hotel should have emailed us to tell us that they are under a major renovation. There is no restaurant on property, no general store, no spa, no arcade/ kid area as promised. The exercise room is a temporary vacant room. The hot tubs and pools have empty bottles of booze, half smoked cigars, bottle caps etc everywhere. Our room has someone’s wax for their braces stuck to the mirror. We had a choice where to stay and can’t believe the hotel or their website wouldn’t give any warning. My kids are heartbroken and we couldn’t be more disappointed.
