We have stayed in a lot of properties and found very little about the Wren that we didn't like. The covered parking is a huge plus and you are assigned a spot so you never have to search for one. The one bedroom has a fold-out couch for guests and there are two full bathrooms with tubs and showers. The kitchen is roomy and is well stocked. One little thing makes a difference, and for me it was that they had both coffee cups and mugs. I love having a mug for my coffee that holds enough that it doesn't get cold in a few minutes. I needed a mixer and the front desk had one available for me. The bed is comfortable and the patio overlooks Gore Creek. We loved the hot tub although we found it way too hot. It was probably 103°, which in the summer/early fall is really hot. The chlorine smell was too strong too. On the plus side, pool and hot tub time had to be reserved, which allowed the social distancing required right now. Sign up sheets were in the office. We also would have liked it if they opened earlier and stayed open later. The distance from town has been complained about a lot, but wasn't a problem for us. We took a walk every morning into town before everything opened, then came back for breakfast and showers. From there, we'd take another walk along the creek, once even over to Lionshead. If you like walking, this is perfect for you!

We arrived in Vail without a place to stay and thankfully the Wren had availability. the front desk staff was more than helpful and friendly. The location is only a 10-15 minute walk to the main shopping area of Vail. The building is in a perfect location overlooking the river. The 3 bedroom condo was very spacious and nicely decorated. No complaints at all and would stay here again.

My family really enjoyed our accomodations at the The Wren. It is an older property, but it seems to have been maintained very well and is improving. I was told the fire pit area was all new and there is a nice community room with couches TV and shuffleboard table. The furniture in our unit was very nice, new and comfortable, and the kitchen was in great shape. The pool and hot tubs were wonderful, kids had a blast swimming with snow piled up just feet away. We also appreciated the underground parking. Is it a bit of a walk to the lifts? Probably about 15 mintues to Golden Peak lifts (no need to walk all the way to the gondala), probably longer if you were wearing ski boots, but that's why I just wear regular shoes and throw my stuff in a locker when I get there. On mornings when we didn't want to walk we found the shuttle to be pretty easy to use for the ride to the lifts, but harder to find when done for the day in the afternoon. Also, during our stay you had to actually bring your skis on the bus which was a pain, but our last day it seemed they had added a ski rack to the outside of the vehicle. Anyway, I would stay here again. Is it in the heart of the village? No, but then again it's half the the price of ones that are and you get a nice sized room and kitchen to boot. Its a condo not a hotel, if you want to hit the village you can walk the fifteen mins or drive the two mins away and park for free after 3pm(just make sure it's a town owned public lot) ….or just bring your own food and drinks and you don't need to worry!

It feels like the Wren is holding on by a shoe string. The ski shuttle is not a priority as far as I could tell. They say it's only a 5 minute walk but it is really 30 to the Gondola, up and down the stairs of the parking garage. In ski boots this is a bit much to start the day! And they ONLY run a shuttle for ski hours which means you are walking back and forth to dinner. Which I didn't mind because I like the exercise but if you are tired from a day on the slopes there is NO food near by. Staff was rude. Their offices don't open until 8am and they seemed put out when we had a question about our departure before this time. You can do better! We were trying to save a buck as Vail is expensive. It's worth paying a little extra. The Wren is on its way out. I am only so frank as I wish I had read this review before we decided to stay there.

Always a pleasure dealing with the efficient staff at the Wren in beautiful Vail CO. The room furniture and flooring upgrades look great. Improvements around the jacuzzi area making it more handicap accessible looks great. Keep up the great job of getting everyone to and from the mountain via the shuttle in a timely manor. A shout out to Todd and Val for all their hard work keeping all the owners and guest happy year after year.
