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!

STAY. INDEPENDENT. TOGETHER. The Pad is a fresh STAY. INDEPENDENT. TOGETHER. 

The Pad is a fresh lodging concept aimed to disrupt traditional hospitality options.  By providing various room types, The Pad will fit into any traveler's budget. Some might call us a hostel, while others might call us a boutique hotel; call us what you'd like, but we'll always have our guests in mind.  We can wait to host you at The Pad!

Some awesome aerial & ground footage of our Toppin Some awesome aerial & ground footage of our Topping Out Ceremony. 

What is a Topping Out Ceremony, and why did we do it?

This celebration isn’t associated with the beginning or end of construction; rather, it is associated with the raising of the building’s highest structural element - a sign that the construction project has reached its literal apogee, its most auspicious point. To learn more about this event & stage of construction, check out our most recent blog! Link in bio.

“You have to act as if it were possible to radic “You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world and you have to do it all the time.” – Angela Davis

Have you seen @sgalpin74's mural on the wall of the Silverthorne Performing Arts Center? We are so inspired by her community message and her love letters project. 

You can read more about Shannon and her work across #SummitCounty in her interview with @silverthornecolorado last month. 

The full mural includes the above quote & these words: 
Strength, Solidarity, Hope, Love, Courage, Equality, Action, 
Unity, Community, Valor

Does that seem unreal to anyone else? 
Our steel framework is complete!
