How to Get There
While it did take one-and-a-half to two hours to get there from Denver International Airport, I found Mountain Thunder Lodge quite a comfortable place. The room I selected was a singles studio condominium that, to my delight, I was able to book for an extremely reasonable price for two nights and was located at the front of the first floor of its building, and I was also delighted with both the fireplace and the DVD player that went with the room; the only problem I had was that the mattress was a bit too softy for comfortable sleeping..I also found it a convenient location; most of the places I wanted to go (restaurants, mostly) were within walking distance, and a free shuttle service is provided for places outside the town itself, such as the Nordic Center. My stay was only two nights, so I did not have much interaction with the Lodge staff, but the ladies at the front desk were extremely cheerful and helpful in both checking in and checking out.
I would definitely recommend Mountain Thunder Lodge for anyone staying in the Breckenridge area, but I would also advise to book well in advance (so as to possibly get a reasonable rate if you're on a budget) and to check ALL the travel/hotel websites (for the same reason).
We stayed one night in a one bedroom condo in building 5. It was very clean and spacious with a fireplace and outdoor seating area. The kitchen was spotless with all the amenities you would need. The staff at the check in counter were very helpful with suggestions for things to do and places to eat. They honored our request to check in early, and I so appreciate that. There is a free shuttle that will drop you off and pick up downtown, which helps on a Saturday night. The location is a little off the downtown area, very quiet and peaceful, yet close to restaurants and downtown. I will be coming back in the future!
The Mountain Thunder Lodge is perfect! There's an underground tunnel right outside to easily get to downtown Breckenridge and the gondola up the mountain. The fully equipped kitchens are perfect for making your own meals.
