We had business to do in Beaver Creek plus we had some friends who wanted to tag along to be in the mountains. I rented the a 3 bed / 3 bath condo at the Seasons through the Vail - Beaver Creek central reservations. I was specifically looking for something economical. The location was perfect, the price was right and our particular unit was very nice. No, it didn't have granite counter tops and, heaven forfend, the fridge didn't have an ice maker but the furniture and art were very good and it was in nice condition. The common areas at the Seasons are very plain. it's not a ski lodge, it's a condo building. As for complaints about no a/c, you don't need it. Open a dang window - you're in the mountains of Colorado for pity's sake not Mississippee.
It sounds like many of the complaints about this place are because the units weren't "updated." Realize that when you rent in this type of building it can be hit and miss. The people who own the unit may not be interested in sinking a bunch of money into redecorating especially if the unit is primarily an investment. They may only use the apartment a little bit and they view it as a place to crash after skiing. I own rental properties and I know how much "updating" costs. The updating may not pay for itself in more bookings. My position is that if the unit is clean and comfortable, you can live with formica instead of granite, tile instead of marble as long as you're not paying granite and marble prices. If you want fancy, stay in Beaver Creek and you will pay, believe me.
I recommend reserving condos in ski areas through the area's official reservation desk. That way you have a live person to speak to. Of course Expedia is not going to post pictures of the less attractive units and you're probably not going to pay any less than if you called the area's reservation people. If you talk to central reservations, they'll explain to you what type of building it is. You can tell them your expectations so that you're not disappointed. If you are disappointed, you have someone to talk to beyond the building management.
