Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Decor is outdated, and most furniture looks and feels worn
  • Limited amenities
  • Almost all rooms have tube TVs
  • Rooms closest to the common area tend to be noisy
  • No on-site management

Bottom Line

The condos at Park Meadows are a little on the dated side, but offer good value if what you really want is proximity to the slopes and the ease of walking to nightlife. Don’t expect too many amenities from this small chalet-style condominium, though -- two Jacuzzis, in-room ski lockers, decent ski-in/ski-out access and free Wi-Fi are the biggest draws.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Cozy chalet-style lodge geared toward ski bums and budget travelers

Lobby
Lobby

This small chalet-style lodge provides great ski-in/ski-out access for the price, but its decor and amenities leave much to be desired for anyone seeking a full-service resort.

The grounds are attractive but basic, featuring only two communal Jacuzzis and a small picnic and barbecue area. The lodge is outdated and overly rustic (read: dowdy), yet it's a great budget option for those who care less about style and more about accessibility -- or simply a place to crash post skiing.

The main common space (more of a gathering room than a lobby because the management is off-site) is two wood-clad stories featuring a billiards table, stereo with CD player, large gas fireplace, lounge areas and TV, a coffeemaker, and a vending machine.

Because of its affordability, the lodge tends to draw a younger college crowd -- who commonly can be found congregating in the common space for an impromptu party post-slopes. Because of this, rooms nearby can be a bit noisy, and getting to sleep early may prove difficult.

 Location

Close walk to town, and a short walk to the Four O’clock ski run

Park Meadows is situated along the Four O'clock ski run, with a direct lift to the slopes in close walking distance. Breckenridge’s bustling downtown area, located along Main Street, is only a seven-minute walk away and is host to great restaurants, bars and entertainment.

  • 2-hour drive to Denver International Airport
  • 3-minute walk to the Four O'clock ski lift
  • 7-minute walk to Main Street
  • 9-minute walk to the Breck-Connect Gondola
  • 9-minute walk to the Breckenridge Welcome Center
  • 15-minute walk to the closest brewery, Breckenridge Brewery
  • 4-minute drive to the Stephen C. West Ice Arena, for ice skating
  • 4-minute drive to City Market, for groceries and supplies

Studio Condo
Studio Condo

Intended more for the ski bums and budget travelers than the spa-seekers and luxury-resort lovers, Park Meadows' rooms offer just a step beyond the bare minimum of amenities. Full kitchens in each condo are a definite perk, as are free Wi-Fi and ski lockers.

Each of the 30 units is individually owned and decorated -- the common trait among them being a considerably outdated and dowdy decor. Only the two-bedroom condo has a flat-screen TV in the living room (the master bedroom has the same tube TV found in all the studios and one-bedroom condos). While the units don’t have washer/dryers, there is a facility on-site for laundry (bring your quarters).

Overall the furniture and interior don't provide the ultimate comfort, but the price is reasonable for the ski-in/ski-out location, which tends to be the primary draw. Keep in mind that rooms near the common-area lodge -- where skiers tend to congregate post slopes -- tend to be noisier.
