    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Will The Pad be a hotel or a hostel?2020-07-28T23:41:44+00:00

    The Pad will be a hybrid of hotel and hostel, with different room types for people with various budgets. We hope by having a variety of lodging options, you’ll find your place and use The Pad as a jumping off point for your adventures around Summit County.

    When do you plan to open?2020-07-28T23:50:05+00:00

    We had our topping out ceremony in July 2020. The Pad is currently on schedule to have our Grand Opening in Spring 2021. Stop by our site, see our progress, take a photo and tag us in a social media post!

    How much will it cost to stay at The Pad?2020-07-28T23:58:09+00:00

    Like any other hospitality property, prices will fluctuate depending on room type, season, and demand. Our base rate for an 8-bunk room is $45/person/night. We regularly assess other local hospitality options to stay competitive and ultimately be your top lodging choice. We pledge not take advantage of people stranded due to unforeseen circumstances, and we will work with you if you need an extra night. We’ll have promotional rates as we get closer to opening, so sign up for our newsletter, follow us on social media, and stay informed.

    Will there be an all female or male dorm?2020-07-29T00:02:54+00:00

    Yes! We will have a same-sex dorm lodging option. Please notify us when making your reservation and we’ll be sure to get you in the right spot. Your comfort is one of The Pad’s top priorities.

    Will I have to share a bathroom?2020-07-29T00:07:38+00:00

    Our suites and private rooms have their own bathrooms. The dorms have semi-private shared bathrooms. All shower units are private and have a personal, lockable changing area with hooks for your belongings.

    Will my stuff be safe in my dorm room while I’m out?2020-07-29T00:10:43+00:00

    All bunk beds will have two forms of lockable storage – a smaller one by your bed suitable for personal items like electronics, passports, and wallets; a larger compartment near your bunk that will fit larger items such as backpacks and luggage.

    I have a large group of friends; can we book a room to ourselves?2020-07-29T00:15:40+00:00

    Yes! We would love to accommodate your large group, depending on availability. We have 4, 6 and 8 person bunk dorms, and will be flexible to suit your group’s needs.

    Do you have storage for my gear or larger items?2020-07-29T00:18:58+00:00

    We have built-in lockable storage in the bunk rooms for our guests’ smaller items. We also have a guest only gear storage area outfitted to secure your bigger items such as ski boots, skis, bikes, golf clubs, etc. – complete with video surveillance. There will be entrances to gear storage from inside and outside of the building for convenient access, and only people with a room key will be able to enter the gear storage area.

    Is there a minimum age to stay in a dorm room?2020-07-29T00:25:51+00:00

    Yes. You must be 18 years or older to reserve and stay in a dorm room. Private rooms do not have an occupancy age requirement, but someone 18 or older will need to reserve and stay in the room with any minors.

    Will The Pad have an onsite dining option?2020-07-29T00:32:08+00:00

    Yes! We are still finalizing the details, but plan to have a grab-and-go concept. The cuisine will be inspired from a local chef’s menu and be mountainly delicious. Sign up for our newsletter, follow us on social media, and stay tuned for details as we finalize plans.

    I see your mascot Paddie on the website, are you pet friendly?2020-07-29T00:43:58+00:00

    We love animals and hope to be able to allow pets at The Pad. We are still working on our pet policy; however, allowing pets in select private rooms is our best option if we are able to allow them. We will have one furry friend on site, Paddie, to welcome guests, and she will be available for petting anytime!

      People often think building with shipping containers is a way to save a lot of money, and in very specific circumstances it is. 

However, when building a multistory building there is a lot of extra support that needs to be welded into them, when you combine that with the insulation and exterior cladding, if you are not careful and plan accordingly, they can cost you more than traditional building materials. 

@smithdesigncompany has extensive experience with using shipping containers in both residential and commercial applications, and has done an amazing job at incorporating them into our building. 

There has been a misconception that the entire building is made out of shipping containers, when only about 16% of our total square footage in comprised of them.

      We are in full detail mode - electrical, plumbing, HVAC and more! 

Once all of the nitty gritty is dialed in, the walls will go up and then we can really start focusing on interiors! 

As always, many many thanks to the hardworking crew with Himmelman Construction for all that they've done for The Pad to get us to this point.

      Sneak peak at the lovely black brick going on portions of our exterior shell. 

It contrasts nicely with the pink...maybe we'll have to have a chat with our contractors 🤔😂
