My family and I visited Vail last month. A friend of mine subleted his week at The Wren to us. We are a family of 5, so at first I thought that having only 1 bathroom wouldn´t be enough for all of us. Well, I was wrong. The Wren has spacious apartments (also an spacious bathroom), and the one we... More

This is a very great deal for the price. We stayed in unit 406 a one bedroom two full bathroom unit with lifted ceilings. Our balcony face the mountain and gore creek. Updated kitchen and baths, comfy king bed and pull out sofa. Fireplace, wifi, cable tv, and nice decor. If you want to be in the thick of things,... More

The rooms are proper sized for a ski vacation . Units have a nice workable kitchen and gas fireplace. Outdoor pool and hot tubs are a plus. Shuttle is available and the location is a very easy walk to Vail Village. We have been returning to the Wren for 6 years.....

We rented a unit with one bed and a sleeper sofa. Pros: easy walk to Vail Village. Shuttle is convenient. Kitchen and bathroom remodeled recently. The 2 Jacuzzi and heated pool outside are a plus. We had a leaking spout and it was very promptly fixed. Cons: The bedroom is on the side of the outside hallway (motel style) so... More

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

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
