Just got back from a weeks stay at The Wren. We have stayed here before and was pleasantly surprised that they have updated the units. It snowed heavily the day we arrived and the staff was doing their best to keep up with the snow and ice. I know a lot of people prefer the rooms that face Gore Creek... More

We love the quality of the Wren. It's staff is well trained and it offers excellent views and ambiance. Walking trails connect the condo with stores and restaurants throughout the Vail Valley and we hardly need to use our car. Parking is excellent, and free bus service is down the street.

So this is the cheapest place in vail that is filled with time share people from Texas that are thrilled to be there. Every unit is different, some are nice to ok, and some are dumpy with an homage to the 80s with frayed carpet and nails that stick out of the carpet.

Located at the eastern end of Vail Village and just west of the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens and Ford Amphitheater, The Wren provides very spacious rooms that are tastefully and comfortably furnished. A short walk will take you into the "action" in the Village or to Gondola One on which you can quickly ascend to high hiking trails, The Tenth,... More

We've stayed at this condo for 30 years on an annual timeshare basis. It a great value and walking distance to the Vail Village and right next to the Gerald Ford Ampatheature and Betty Ford Alpine Gardens.

When I booked our room, I made sure that the room was facing Vail Mountain as we've stayed in condos before in Vail where the noise from the interstate was very loud all day and night. I was assured that all of the "loft" rooms faced the mountain. That is true to a point -- the living area and deck... More

Our experience at The Wren was excellent.

They made... More

My wife and I and our kids have been coming here for over 30 years. The Wren is a great place to stay no matter what size group and the location is perfect for walking to anyplace. We actually like to stay on the 4th floor overlooking the Gore River because the view is awesome! You have the large playground... More

This was a return trip to The Wren for us! We visited in 2012, and returned there at the end of March 2014. The first place we called for lodging was The Wren. They were very accommodating and personable on the phone, and the price can't be beat for the location. I would absolutely recommend checking them out. Though we... More

The accommodations are very nice, convenient location, good shuttle to the slopes, and most importantly very reasonably priced. While within walking distance, it will probably be a good 20 min hike w/your gear, so take the shuttle. The only downside was that the staff isn't onsite after 8pm; we were trying to sleep while a party was raging in the... More
