Have you stayed at Steamboat Springs? Here's your chance to tell other WorldMark owners what it's really like. How big is the pool? How hot is the hot tub? What do you wish you had known before you left home?

My family LOVES Steamboat Springs. The resort has nice pools and amenities.

BEWARE and do not spend the points on a penthouse unit. I invited my family so multiply units were needed. The one and three bedroom was much nicer then the penthouse. The sink area has no cabinet... it is open so you have a full view of the garbage disposal and plumbing. The stove was missing the drawer that usually holds the pots and pans. It looked unfinished and really kinda trashy. I complained...but no one cared. Stay away from unit #6304.

Wondering what the difference is between the 2 bedroom Deluxe, Penthouse and Presidential units are? Or is it better to just get a 3 bedroom for extra space?

We came here for the 2016 Winterfest. For those of you who don't know, Steamboat has the greatest Winter carnival ever. Anyway we had a 2 bedroom unit on the top floor of whatever building we were in - view was the valley across the highway which was breathtaking. The rooms were beautiful, the amenities perfect, loved the pool in winter, and sitting by the fireplace at night couldn't be beat. Steamboat is the greatest town in Colorado (with Leadville a close second) and this resort lives up to the Steamboat standard. If you're skiing, they have a regular bus that runs back and forth. The lodge area is nice and the staff friendly. Not sure what else to add other than it was wonderfully peaceful at all times of day and night - no earplugs required to sleep. It was just a huge blessing to be a Worldmark owner and be able to enjoy such a slice of heaven.

We arrived kind of late (Afterdark) so we were not sure what to expect in the morning. This was our first trip to this area of Colorado, and even though we were only staying for one night, I had researched some local activities before arriving for the next morning. Finding the resort was easy, good signage and we were able to get our room quickly. We had a 2 bedroom on ground floor. We could not find parking in the garage but was able to park outside close enough that it was not a long walk.

The room was nice, up to expected standards. I had read about poor maintenance, but did not see any of that. Everything seemed to work fine and no complaints about noise. No bad smells and the room was already warm when we walked in, maybe a little to warm. We turned the heat down. In the morning we ate and checked out pretty early so we could do a few things around town before continuing our drive to Estes Park.

One of the coolest things about Steamboat springs is the bears. On the way in to town, a large Black Bear crossed the road in front of us. to bad it was too dark to get a good picture of a Black Bear in the dark, but it was cool. About 45 mins after unloading, I had to go back out to the car to get an item and discovered a momma bear and her cub in the parking lot and digging in the garbage. To some that might seem frightful, but for us it was cool and the whole family came out to watch for a while. I also understand that it is not good for bears to be in the garbage and the resort needs to do better at preventing this from happening, but again we enjoyed the chance to see them.

The next day did not include any bears, but we did hike to the falls, and walked the river for a ways before leaving town. I managed to get 7 geocaches in the area which always adds to the fun.

Last year on the one month between Winter and Summer (there is an off month that the regular Steamboat residents take off and go on vacation from us tourists) my granddaughter and I went to this Worldmark resort for the first time. We only live 3 hours away in Fort Collins, Colorado...but had never been to Steamboat.
The drive was spectacular! We saw eagle, moose, antelope, raging Cache de Poudre river and a snowy mountain pass (Cameron Pass).
Our 2 bedroom condo was perfect! No wear and tear, clean and modern.
We had a great time around town and relaxing by the Worldmark pool and hot tub.
Some of us will hike, some will innertube on the Yampa River, some will go up on the gondola. Depending on age and ability, we'll find our comfort level and do what we can do!

This year, I've booked a 3 bedroom and invited 4 friends. One of my friends is handicapped, and the unit I reserved is a handicapped unit.
The pool is equipped with a lift so that he can enjoy that feature with us. (I'm so proud of Worldmark for making units available for all people!) For those with food allergies like me, the ability to cook is fantastic and Steamboat has great grocery stores!

I've had my ownership through the Trendwest years and 1 husband. (haha)

When I lived in California I visited locations such as: Clear Lake, Solvang, Pismo Beach, Windsor, Camlin, Birch Bay, Clear Lake, Lake Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, Another Lake Tahoe, 2 Las Vegas Locations, Bali Hai Kauai, Monterey, New Orleans, Bass Lake,Angles Camp, Wolf Creek, Estes Park and Steamboat Springs. Might have forgotten something...?

I've loved having my Worldmark by Wyndham!

My husband and I LOVED Steamboat Springs. This was a vacation that was just us, to recharge our parental batteries. This beautiful area did the trick. (I have lived in the desert my whole life so the Rocky Mountains were like an 8th wonder of the world!)

The resort was beautiful and very, very clean. We stayed in a one room unit and it seemed very big and roomy. The unit was clean. (I could walk around in bare feet and I didn't have to worry about my feet getting black.) It was also very quiet. We have quiet neighbors and the resort had a very peaceful and serene feeling to it. There were two pools, two hot tubs, a sauna, a steam room, a playground, and a large bbq area that we saw a lot of people using. My husband and I used the hot tub that was close to our unit every day and only on 2 of the 6 days we were there did we encounter anyone else using it.

The check-in was super easy. Anna at the front desk was wonderful. There was not one push to go to a meeting, which we both appreciated. The unit was finished on time and was wonderful to go into after a very long drive.

There were paths along the resort to walk. There was also a cute shopping center very close to the resort with eating places and a movie theater. We went to two movies while we were there. (We were the only people in the theaters in both of them...Very interesting!)

We found plenty to do. We drove to Fish Creek Falls and hiked the trails; we took the walking tour starting from the museum; we went to the botanical garden and walked the hiking/biking trail. We also drove out to Craig to see what we could see. We went on a drive to Pearl Lake and did some birding.

We enjoyed several places in town--We ate at Wynona's, Carl's, Johnny B. Goode's, and the Creekside Café. We also went to an open music jam at Schmigity's and had a great time.

We loved Steamboat. We would go back in a heartbeat. In fact, we will be getting my son a room for his honeymoon there, at his request. Keep up the good work at Steamboat!

Maintenance continues to be a major deficiency at this otherwise wonderful resort. Under Trendwest it was excellent. Since Wyndham took over, maintenance has never been good. Lately it seems to have taken a turn for the worse.

Steamboat was a nice place to be in the summer with plenty to do for all ages. However, I have one complaint and I typically do not write reviews or posts but felt compelled to tell about the room we stayed in. It smelled horrible and I could not pinpoint the smell. I could tell it wasn't food and it wasn't from the prior occupants. The smell was strong enough to wake me up throughout the night and have 4 days of a constant headache with nausea trailing me off and on. Upon our owner education meeting when I mentioned this, we were informed that a pipe had broke in that unit and another guest approx. 2 weeks ago on the same floor had complained about the same thing. Apparently it was odorized for us but it did not help at ALL.Ido not feel that it was fair that our use of credits were spent to stay in a room with a strong and unpleasant odor. Moving rooms was not an option apparently. I will say the staff was very friendly and Steamboat has many options for activities for all ages to enjoy.

Stayed at Steamboat Building 2 on July 1, 2013. When I approached the front door to the building I saw that someone had taken out their trash and dripped liquid all the way out the door and down the steps. Disgusting. Left the next morning and returned for another night stay in Building 2 on July 8th, 2013 (Monday.) The same disgusting stain was on the entrance stoop and all the way down the steps, six days later. If I could have found a hose I would have cleaned it off myself.

I also had to repair the top hinge to the master bathroom door (room 2006) so it would close properly.

The front desk were super friendly and the room was very clean. Wish the building/grounds maintenance was better.

My son and I just spent 3 days in Steamboat Springs. Our condo was very comfortable. We had a great view on the third floor. The resort only had the indoor pool opened when we were there. The pool was small and we needed to walk to the reception building from our building. It was a short 1/2 a block walk. The resort has a fitness center, business center, child play area for your children to use while you are in the fitness center, a game room (pool table, video games, etc.) a nice upstairs lobby, outdoor jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a small souvenir shop. It also has a parking garage under the building.

Exceptionally nice staff. As always, I love my membership with Worldmark. We just bought into it in July 2012. So far we have stayed at:

Las Vegas on the Boulevard, Red River, NM, and Steamboat Springs. We are heading to Red River again this weekend. For next summer, we have booked 1 week at Oceanside, 1 week at Big Bear and 1 week at Indio.

We have also vistied and toured Midway, Ut, Taos, NM, Santa Fe, NM, Bison Ranch, Az, Pinetop, Az. All are beautiful resorts and we will eventually be staying in all of them.

Don't book a 2 bedroom penthouse - its a total ripoff. It is nothing special, and actually seemed smaller than the normal 2 bedroom. Dishonest practices in my opinion.

The good stuff: the property is gorgeous, everyone very nice, pools and esp. the big hot tub excellent, parking never a problem. Not so good: we had to get a "2-bd.penthouse" because that was all that was left when I decided to make the reservation for Memorial Day weekend. I was excited because I hadn't stayed in a penthouse before. It took a lot of credits (almost 4,000 a night!) but still would have been worth it if there was anything special, but there was NOTHING special about the unit we were in. It was smaller and more crowded in the living area than most of the other regular units I have stayed in; I couldn't imagine 4 adults, or two adults and a kid or two, trying to work around each other in the living/dining/kitchen area. We moved some of the big heavy dining chairs so we wouldn't keep bumping into them. WHY are these considered "penthouses" if the sq. footage is so small, there is no feature that other rooms don't have except the small jetted tub, and what did I pay all those credits for? I asked at the front desk to be sure we were even in the right room and they said yes; and I commented on this in my "review" after too, but haven't gotten any answers or replies at all.

Recently stayed at WM Steamboat Springs and loved it. Having stayed at over 30 WM properties, it met the highest expectations. Steamboat is beautiful... the gorgeous Yampa River that runs through town, the waterfall, the Strawberry Hot Springs, and all the great restaurants. The units were clean, well kept, and comfortable. The grounds with the three pools are a bonus but the real amenities are the surroundings of Steamboat. Honestly, we tried to book Estes Park (which we love) but were very happy with our second choice of Steamboat. Not sure which we like more??? The resort staff were spot on with all of the recommendations, so go there and just ask where to go or eat. On Main Street, we went to the smallest movie theatre that any of us had ever been in- it was awesome and my kids loved it. All in all, if you go to this property, you will love it. My wife and I loved it, the kids loved it(ages 6, 18, and 21) and our friends loved it.

I have not long returned from my 9 night stay (Feb 4 - 13) and to be honest, wow. It was my first time to Steamboat Spring and indeed to any Worldmark resorts outside Australia. All the staff that I came into contact with were very friendly and helpful including the ski shuttle drivers. I originally booked a 1 bed apartment but the thought of someone sleeping on a foldout sofa for 9 nights wasn't right so went for 2 bed apartment. The unit, (in building 3), was very well appointed with all the essentials and very comfortable, it faced south looking over the valley so there were some great sunsets, unfortunately didn't get to one of the 3 hot tubs or the pool (too chicken to brave the cold I guess), which brings me to an observation, the web page doesn't do justice to the resort as there are 6 apartment buildings (must have been all that construction I read about) plus the reception building ... a village in itself ... hence it is also named as The Village at Steamboat.
I was lucky enough to arrive in time for some great powder skiing, actually, 5 days and 3.5 feet of powder.. ..sensational. Shopping at places like Walmart, Sports Authority, Christies, supermarkets and restaraunts all within a short walk of the resort, (taxi was pretty cheap when it was snowing and returning with loads of shopping), loads of other places to shop and eat, (one I have to mention, the Steakhouse, downtown) downtown, the ski base and on the mountain. Plenty to do and see if your not into skiing/boarding, eg. the hot spring are great, or if your when I did, over a week end, the winter carnival in the main st downtown is something different (for me anyway).
Take the plunge, I doubt you will be disappointed.

Cheers,

Dave

My 14 year old son and I have just completed 10 nights at fabulous Steamboat Springs. This was also our first visit to this resort and cannot speak highly enough of the Front Desk Staff and the Concierge - they were extremely professional and every request was dealt with promptly and efficiently. In addition, the free shuttle bus service was the best ever! All three drivers (Rich, Mark and Earl) are terrific and go out of their way to provide a friendly, helpful and regular service to and from the Gondola. We did not have to wait more than a few minutes either at the base or the Resort.
However, we have had several maintenance issues with our room
which, although disappointing, did not in any way spoil our holiday. They were, nevertheless, inconvenient. In summary:
> Issue with tv in main lounge room which took two attempts to fix
> Door on bathroom does not close properly - leading to an inadvertent locking of the door from the outside. (Maintenance person was not impressed.)
> Dishwasher leaking onto kitchen floor
> Blood stained bed cover and blanket (immediately replaced)
> Hot tub at Front Desk area was out of service for 2 days. The alternate hot tub did not have change rooms and we had to sprint back to our rooms in our wet bathers and towels whilst snowing heavily
> Problems pulling & closing the blinds on the main window (we did not report until end of our stay)
> Radio alarm clock stopped working (it had been plugged into the wrong socket, apparently!). Immediately fixed.
> Hairdryer almost came off the wall. Repaired within a few minutes.
> Main entrance door to our building rarely seems to lock properly

Generally, the living area is not as big as some of the other Worldmark resorts in USA and Canada, and the kitchen is not as well equipped. We had to request a kettle, there were only two saucepans and no eggcups.

Cleanliness of the unit was excellent, however, and much appreciated.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Steamboat is the 7th North American ski resort that we have been privileged to visit and is by far the best!
