We stayed in room 107 for 3 nights. The room was privately owned and managed/rented through ResortQuest. Rate was $160/night.

They only give you one key to the condo. While the door to the unit is a combo lock, the key is required to get in the front door. Only having one key can be a big inconvenience, so keep this in mind.

The worst part of this room was the check-in/out process. The ResortQuest desk for this condo is waaaay up in the Blackcomb Benchlands, in the lobby of the Aspens on Blackcomb. It is about a 7 km drive (10-15 minutes) and completely out of the way, up past the village in a place you really have no other reason to go. You are required to both pick up and then drop off the key to the common areas/parking at this location. We didn't see any reason why we needed to return the key to the desk; we expected to be able to just leave the key in the room. Its an extra 30 kms of driving (40 minutes to an hour) considering round-trips. Icing on the poor experience cake, I guess.

As for the room, it is dated and clearly showing its age. The bed is uncomfortable and squeaky. The shower smelled like mildew. Noise travels freely through the interior walls. This room faces Lake Placid Road, which is a main bus route, so there are diesel buses roaring by all through the day & night. It is also the main access for Creekside and day skier parking. The suite was stuffy and had an odd smell upon arrival, but you cannot sleep with the window open due to noise from outside. The electric baseboard heating is horrible; the thermostats are worn out and don't work properly. They blast you with heat and then freeze you solid before repeating the cycle. All of the gas fireplaces in the entire complex were turned off due to fire code violations. One of the two elevators was broken, with repairs scheduled in the coming weeks.

As for the decor... TACKY. They should call this room the "dances with wolves" suite. Framed photos of wolves adorn every free inch of the walls and there was even a well-used VHS copy of the movie on the shelf.

My wife and I booked this condo just for a place to sleep. The rest of our group was staying at another, larger and much nicer place where we spent most of our time. If we spent more time in the unit, we would surely be even more disappointed with our stay.

On the plus side, it has free parking and is very close to the Creekside base area. It was also very clean, besides the stale/stuffy smells.

This unit is the worst we have rented in Whistler. If you could get this suite for $99/night or less, I would consider it acceptable value for money. I do not recommend this unit. There is better value out there in the same price range.

We like the location - at Creekside in Whistler, BC so it was quieter and not as busy. It's near the trails, which we wanted as we love to bike the trails. We got a one bedroom unit, with a loft, 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen. Everything was clean and updated. The bed in the bedroom had the hollow in the middle, so we just used the one in the loft. One thing to note: there is no check-in at this hotel. You have to go into Whistler to the Twin Peaks resort for this. We happened to phone a couple of days before we were going, to ask about pets and just happened to find this out. Apparently they are to email you the information, but we never got it. So call before you go!

Good-Room had great balcony, was nicely decorated with fresh paint
Pool area was nice. Free calling which was nice becuase our US cell phone carrier charged 60cents/minute.
Bad-carpet & mattresses were needed to be replaced; appliances were old.
Door to unit was not hung properly & required a lift & pull to shut. No personnel on site.
Elevators were old & one got stuck twice while we were there.

We were looking to get away from the main village since it is too noisy and the lines are so long to the gondolas. Lake Placid Lodge was just perfect... it's one of the only places to rent in Creekside next to the lifts. Loved the new quaint village and the newly renovated building. Will go back again.
