This condo 1510 Simba Run shocking to hear all the traffic noise on I 70. Trucks using engine brakes to slow down creating unbearable noise. Cars whizzing by day and night with every kind of engine you could imagine, as well as motorcycle noise. You could NOT have the windows open. The noise was the most irritating I’ve ever experienced when renting condos. I cannot believe the owner has not disclosed this fairly, as it was such a deterrent to our enjoyment of the condo and Vail. The condo itself is beautiful, pictures are exactly as it is, but I would NOT stay in the summer! when the temperature is close to 90s and you MUST have windows open to all that traffic noise. Condos in Vail do not have air conditioning! Huh? I would give the condo a 4 star for its amenities, but during this COVID time, I did not feel the condo stood up to the cleanliness and sterilization required by CDC. I swiped the dining table with alcohol and the paper towel was filthy! When I spoke with Itrips management they sluffed off this. I even sent them a picture of the dirty paper towel. Hopefully I can attach the towel picture. A disclosure to this noise in describing the condo MUST be disclosed. A big disappointment was that due to covid we could use the property BBQs and limited pool and spa use. Do not rent this during the summer unless you like NOISE!…
First of all: BEWARE WHEN BOOKING. You might be drawn to the low price but they hit me with a $100+ fee after booking that really aggravated me. I'm not the only one this has happened to. (Check other reviews) Pros: Location is good and the kids loved the pool. Decent views and convenient amenities (such as kitchen). Parking garage is nice too. Cons: Aside from the ridiculous booking fees... The unit we stayed in was extremely dated and sort of run down. Toilets didn't flush right, kitchen cabinets and appliances were extremely dated and in disrepair. We were happy with our stay but will probably look around at different options next time we're in Vail.
The price is great as Vail is expensive. The shuttle to the mountain was very efficient with friendly service. Our condo (#2511) however was terrible. They are a good size but this particular condo was dirty, bad plumbing, mold and outdated decor and appliances. The bathrooms need to be updated. This was also made worse when I saw other condos classified at the same level and they were updated and on a completely different level. This should absolutely not be classified at the deluxe level. I like Simba but I’m nervous to book again as you really don’t know what you are going to get.
I made reservation on website. You cant' see the total amount with taxes until you pay for it. After taxes I realized expedia price is better so I made reservation on Expedia and asked to cancel direct reservation. Karen Funnelle told me they cant' cancel direct reservation and that she canceled expedia reservation. I checked in using Expedia reservation which wasn't canceled and wasted 1 hour with expedia to get my money back after my trip. Huge lack of communication. Rooms were OK but facilities are outdated especially for that price level.
There are many choices of condos in Vail, and we were pleasantly surprised at the value presented by Simba Run. The front desk is staffed and very helpful. Underground parking is convenient. We did not make it to the pool, but it looked clean and refreshing. Our apartment was well maintained, albeit a throw back to the 90's in decor. The kitchen was stocked with equipment. It is a short walk to the pedestrian bridge over I-70 to the shops and restaurants in Vail. Very pleasant stay!
