“great staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Avon is a wonderful place as a homebase for Beaver Creek, Vail and many more.
We were very pleased with our accommodations.
We were impressed with the concierge, who provided great information on all the events that were going on over the weekend and was extremely patient with us and our requests. We must say she was a great part of our wonderful experience at thE Christie Lodge. We also thoght, Chris the manager was very helpful with events and wanted to be sure we had a great time.
Thanks, again we will return.

Located just off I-70 this lodge had just what we needed. We were looking for bike paths to ride, and this area provides plenty of paved trails for the casual rider. The lodge wasn't anything special, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The facility was really clean and well kept. It is somewhat older, but well maintained. The room wasn't very large but the furnishings were ok and the bed was very comfy. A temporary A/C unit was placed in the room for the summer months and it worked quite well. It was odd to come thru the bedroom from the outside to get to the living area, but no big deal. If you are a bike rider, be sure to take the shuttle to the top of Vail Pass and ride the bike path back to Avon. The views are spectacular! And, its all downhill......nearly. You don't have to do much pedaling on this ride!! There is a shuttle bus that will take you up to Beaver Creek village as well and you can ride a paved trail back from there that is all downhill too.

The staff at the Christie Lodge was the best I have encountered in all of my travels. The concierge was incredibly helpful and showed genuine concern that we enjoyed our stay. Each day had planned activities, which was great since the weather was "up and down". Everything was very clean!

Room Tip: Ask for a "square" room, away from the ping pong tables.

As mentioned often, it is odd to enter your quarters, through bedroom. Worse is bed is cornered into wall, because of small space for one bedroom unit. Bed itself was very hard, made sleeping a challenge. Pool and spas fairly ordinary, nothing special. Kitchen simple no stove just microwave.
TVs 32' could have larger in living room. Plenty of parking, staff friendly and helpful. Convenient to restaurants and shopping, close to freeway, which was good and bad. Overall for Vail area, should have been better.

Room Tip: If you are on street, expect a lot of noise.

Hello September guest. Thank you for taking the time to offer your comments. I am sorry that your stay was uncomfortable. We replaced all of our mattresses a couple of years ago with good quality mattresses, but it is hard to account for personal taste. We do offer foam toppers upon request for those guests that prefer a softer sleeping surface. We also have room configurations that have the bed centered to the wall. Hope you try us again the next time you are in the area.

Kindest regards,

Tom

Place is a little dated but clean and the staff is top notch. Always ready with a friendly greeting or helpful info for the area. We stayed a week in September. Restaurants and grocery within 2-3 blocks. Avon is nice small town just down the valley from Vail. Has a Walmart lots of places to eat, but with out the Vail prices. Was a nice base to visit surrounding towns. . Easy drive east to Vail, Frisco or Breck. South to Leadville or Aspen. West to Edwards, Glenwood Canyon, and Glenwood Springs. Beaver Creek Resort and slopes right up the mountain.

Room Tip: Tell the front desk you want a room you can roll your luggage to. Most of rooms can only be reached...

Thank you for taking the time to post your review and comment about our staff. Our staff works very hard to make sure our guests have a great stay. It sounds like you had a good change to visit the surrounding area and experience what Colorado has to offer. Hope you see you again soon.

I have to agree with most other people who have posted about Christie Lodge. The main drawback is the bizarre layout and all of the stairs. Once we figured out where things were we really enjoyed our stay. We had a one bedroom unit. It was a little strange having the bed pushed up against the wall, but the bed was comfortable and we slept well. We wondered since the bedroom is just inside the door and we could hear people walking by. Turned out not to be a problem. The kitchen area was small, but large enough for us to fix breakfast and snacks which was all we were interested in doing. Living room was comfortable and the balcony was very nice. We had a 3rd floor unit facing the mountains. Thunderstorms rolled in every night so we had a great view of the lightning over the mountains. The air conditioner worked well to keep the unit cool during the day while we were gone and then it cooled off at night so we could open the door and turn the fan on. Front desk and housekeeping personnel were friendly and helpful. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would stay again if we were in the area.

Room Tip: High floor, away from the freeway

Thank you for staying at the Christie Lodge and taking the time to share your experience. The lodge is comprised of three stories enclosed in an expansive atrium. It can get a little confusing when guests first arrive depending on the room location, so I am happy you oriented yourself quickly and enjoyed the great views from our third floor units. We have over 500 live plants in our common areas that our guests like as well. Hope to see you back again soon!

lodge type atmosphere
may be wonderful in the winter but summer not so much, only 1 ceiling fan over bed area
a/c unit attached to fireplace so only living area gets cooled off
sliding patio door is only through breeze you will get
they provide box fans but they are very noisy
bed was small & uncomfortable for a couple
makeshift kitchen only had electric skillet

Dear guest. Thank you for your comments. I am sorry to hear that you felt your room was too warm during your stay. Since we installed the air-conditioning units last summer, we have had very positive feedback from our guests on how it has helped cool down the rooms during the hotter weeks of July and August. I am disappointed to hear you did not sleep well since all of our rooms have queen size beds that were all replaced 2 years ago when we upgraded all of our rooms. All of our kitchens have full size microwaves, toasters, kitchen sinks and dishwashers along with a small refrigerator. We hope you return and request a first floor unit on the north side of the building if you are sensitive to the heat. Hope you had a safe trip home.
