32A is a comfortable unit for a family of 3 or 4. The mountain views were great. The beds were comfortable. This is a studio, but there is a lot of room - it is more like a suite with the sitting area, kitchenette, and table.
Restaurants and grocery stores in the area are expensive (twice the price of Denver at the super market). Bring breakfast food and lunch items to take full advantage of the kitchenette. We packed sandwiches for our hike. The pizzeria below the room is also surprisingly good and reasonable.
The unit does not have parking. Use the 30 min lot to drop off luggage.
Then, park for free for up to 72 hours in the lot at the entry into the Town below. The free Galloping Goose bus takes you to the free gondola and it is a quick trip back to Blue Mesa Lodge. Otherwise it is $35 per day at the garage at Mountain Village or $25 a night at the Gondola garage. You will not need a car for your visit with the free Gondola into Town.
We also brought mountain bikes. The trails are all free here (!) and there are many options. But there is no place to store the bikes at Blue Mesa Lodge. The parking garage had a couple concrete pillars that were already in use. The Inn at Lost Creek next door was so kind to store them for us. Chad the bellhop was a lifesaver as there are no bike racks in the village (so odd). We ate breakfast there the last morning as well - $16 for the buffet. Also a great deal!
Blue Mesa Lodge does not have a pool or hot tub. However, we ate dinner at the View Restaurant and Bar and found out the Mountain Lodge will let you use their pool if you spend $20 per person at the restaurant. Best mountain view with a hot tub! The food is wonderful too.
Right in the middle of the ski village. Short Gondola to the grocery store, breathtaking gondola to town. No need of a car. Room is great for a small family or a couple. Laundry is next door but no noise. Only issue is there is no hot tub in the building.
