This place is the actual worst - do not stay here! We picked this spot due to affordability and convenience for a weekend of skiing knowing full well, it wasn't the Ritz. We needed a place to crash each night and that was it. It so failed! The entire building smelled like a pack of cigarettes dipped in armpits. The room did NOT match the posted images (which do not seem THAT bad). The room was sort of clean, stunk, had carpeting you did not want your feet to touch, a moldy bathroom, and paper-thin walls that allowed you to hear every phone call of every neighbor. Not only could we not breathe, but we also could not sleep. It was, however, on the bus line which got us out of there by 8am every single morning.
Reminds me of that Eastern European Charm...under communism

This is a unit managed by All Seasons Resort Lodging. This unit is complete crap! The walls are paper thin and you can hear everyone. To remedy this, they disabled the volume control on the TV so the neighbors could not hear it, neither could we! This unit is on the first floor and the window blinds do not close completely (maybe they did 30 years ago). The sink is very slow to drain, the microwave is probably an antique.
There are several nearby hotel chains at Kimball Junction that will provide better value and much better accommodations. Don't waste your money here. If this is the type of room All Seasons Resort Lodging thinks is appropriate, I wouldn't stay in any of their managed places. The one saving grace is that there is wifi.
Not worth the cost

We were looking for a last-minute stay in Park City for a Sundance Event and were having trouble finding reasonable accommodations. We found the Carriage House and the photos seemed nice despite the 2-star rating. We figured it was only for a night and couldn't be that bad.
Upon arrival, the doors were locked and we missed the sign and the key code box. After waiting a while until the 4pm check-in time, I noted the keycode box and the sign saying that if we booked through a third-party site we needed to call a special phone number to obtain a code. When I called the number I was told that we should have received an email with instructions to check in at a completely different property "A couple of blocks" from the carriage house. It was a lot farther than a couple of blocks. I went back to our confirmation email and the information about check-in was buried down at the bottom of the email in some fine print - not obvious at all.
When we finally got checked in and back to the Carriage House and got inside, it was obvious right off that this place was going to be terrible. The hallways were dim and dreary and smelled of stale piss. The locks have 6 digit codes that you enter into a keypad on the door. Our 6 digit code only consisted of 2 different numbers and a kindergartener could have cracked it - we didn't feel particularly safe keeping our belongings in the room when we weren't there.
Upon entering the room, it wasn't much better. First, it was stifling hot in the room as the heat was set to over 80 degrees. The previous occupants must have cooked in the room as it smelled strongly of grilled meat. The room had very dark paint color combinations that made the whole place seem dark, dingy and a lot smaller than it was. When I went out to the vending machines in the main area of floor, everything was out of order. Foil covered the slots on the change machines and cardboard was jammed in the bill and coin slots of the soda machine. Both of the televisions in the room were non-operable. There was one in the living room and another in the bedroom. When you turned both of them on they went to a black error screen. My husband played with both TVs for a while attempting to figure out the trick to getting them to work and was not able to get them to function.
We realized quickly that our unit faced the parking lot and was right by the entrance. We were attempting to get some rest because we had an event that was not until later in the evening. As soon as we laid down in the bed, several trucks pulled up and were unloading all kinds of furniture and other items. The walls were paper thin and you could hear every little sound outside - people's conversations, car doors closing, stomping footsteps, things being dragged across the concrete, moving carts clacking along and best of all, you could hear the electronic keycode box and the sound that each number being entered into the keypad made. For about an hour it seemed like the entrance was a grand central station of people loudly coming and going. Then for about 20 minutes, we got to hear the couple in the unit above us having wild sex - you could hear everything, even their subtle pillow-talk. They also both stomped around the unit like they were wearing lead boots - it was ridiculously loud.
Since it was so hot in the room, we had turned the temp on the thermostat way down, but it was still stifling hot when we returned from our event. We would have loved to have used the fireplace in the unit, but it was far too hot. We ended up completely shutting off the ac/heater unit that was in the bedroom because it was continuously blowing hot air. Even with turning it off, it still kicked on every 10 minutes like clockwork and ran for about 15 seconds and shut off again. The problem with this was that it was insanely loud and woke me up every time it came on. I got almost no sleep all night. When I finally did manage to fall asleep around 5:30 am, it seemed this was when many people in the building were getting up and around and you could hear every single sound of people coming and going in and out of the building punching the building code into the keypad. We were so exhausted that we ended up going back to sleep once things had quieted down. We ended up sleeping until 10am which means we completely missed the opportunity for breakfast anywhere in the city.
The sad part about this room was that with a little TLC, it would have been really nice, It was just run down and worn with a lack of maintenance. The same with the building itself, with some paint and a little remodeling of public spaces, this could be a very nice condo unit.
The strangest thing that happened was several hours after we left the hotel, they called asking us if we were extending our stay. I let them know that we had been out of the room for several hours as we had left by the check-out time. They had told us at check-in that we did not need to return to the other property to check-out, so we didn't. The . agent informed us that the housekeeper could not get into the room because someone was in it and had the deadbolt locked from inside. I let her know that we were out of the room and were eating at a restaurant nowhere near the condo. She said okay and let me go, however, I could tell by her voice that she didn't seem to believe me. I had to call the hotel back the next day to confirm that we weren't charged for an additional night because it was such a strange phone call.
