We have been coming to the Lift House for 8 years and have never been disappointed. The location is great and the staff are pleasant to work with and be around. There is parking on the premises It is short walk to ski lifts. Shopping in Lionshead is right there. There is free bus service to Vail Village.

The location cannot be beat and the price is unheard of in the Vail Valley. The balcony is a nice addition for enjoying the views and some wine before going out to dinner. Even though the lodge has been around for many decades, the property is kept up very well and clean. The staff are attentive and helpful. This is... More

We stayed at the Lift House Thanksgiving of 2014. We had a party of 7 with two rooms side by side. Our balconies overlooked the shops below and the lift up the mountain. We were thrilled with the location! Grab your gear, walk a block and you are skiing. The rooms were good size, clean, and comfortable. Plenty of room... More

We were concerned since it is a "pet friendly" lodge, but we saw absolutely no evidence or smell of dogs. We didn't want to spend a fortune, but wanted to be in the village and not need a car to drive in each day. While not a 5-star, this lodge has a great location with the gondola less than a... More

As others have stated, this is the low-budget choice in Vail. The location is very good and the room was clean. The decor is very dated and the service is almost non-existent. It is more like a VRBO condo than a hotel. Which is fine for some. Just don't think this is a hotel, with hotel services. Especially when compared... More

Vail is expensive and Lifthouse is not cheap either but it is at the low end of prices and offers very good value when compared to other lower end accommodation in far worse locations. It is nearly ski in ski out, just a 1 minute walk to the Eaglebahn gondola. It is also right in Lionshead Square only a few... More

We had over 18" of snow over the weekend. Good news since they needed it. This hotel is very affordable compared to surrounding hotel rates. it is walking distance (with boots on) to the gondola and chair lift. Great restaurants within walking distance as well as a ice skating rink 30 yards away. All the walking paths leading to the... More

If you want a great location, super clean studios, excellent service and don't mind slightly dated decor then stay here! From our balcony we can see the slopes and the beautiful new Lionshead buildings. The Lifthouse is well managed and some of the dedicated staff have been around for decades. Be smart with your money and stay here, splurge on... More

It was a nice place but a little tired. Excellent location and value considering the costs of some of the higher end places. We booked online and the person we dealt with was rather curt but the front desk person was very nice and helpful. Good value but not fancy or high end

Unbeatable best location vs. price relation at Vail. True, property could use a renovation, but who minds actually, when in the room everything was working perfectly and the view was outstanding? Heating was perfect, room size for 2 adults and one child good; Snuggly fitted kitchenette sufficient for a short stay. The sofa bed could be replaced, the rest can... More
