SCMR vs. Competitor: Lodging + Golf

Summit County Mountain Retreats believes that visiting Keystone doesn’t have to break the bank. We find that people often book with one of our larger competitors because they’re not aware of their other choices, or the fine print.One of our competitors recently advertised a sale on their lodging when you bundle your golf, as well as 9 holes of free golf on the day of your arrival. They also threw in a free scenic gondola ride for kids, a guided hike and a fitness/yoga class.We decided to put together a quick comparison of what it would cost to stay with us versus our competitor. Their ad was unclear as to how many people in the party could take advantage of the free activities, and their website says guided hikes only go through September 7th. So we eliminated the guided hike, and assumed one adult in the party would take advantage of the free golf and fitness class. Since the golf package the guest ends up choosing as part of their bundle would be the same on both sides, we left that off.Notes: The advertised “free 9 holes of golf” is only available after 4 p.m. on the day of your arrival. Additionally, if you don’t use the free 9 holes of golf because you’re tired from traveling or you’re not interested in the fitness class, these free activities don’t add value to your trip.

Booked: September 16 Reserved: September 25-28 for 2 Adults & 2 Kids Property: 2-bedroom located in The Springs
