I read many reviews before I booked. Trip of a few days to Ski Vail. Realized the place was small, etc., but felt it couldn't be that bad. I was wrong.
Rented a one bedroom condo. Very small. Felt tight with just a couple and our teenage son. What really bothered me despite everything else was being lied too. I called the morning of our trip to ensure that the wood burning fireplace allowed guests to burn wood. I was told yes and fire logs. When we got into the condo, a card was hanging on the fireplace saying you can't burn any wood. You were given a complementary fire log. If you want to burn more, you have to buy them from the front desk. I feel this was all deliberately misleading and should be stated on their website.
The bed was comfortable, besides that everything else was uncomfortable. Despite turning the heat down, the room got quite warm at night while sleeping leading to everyone complaining the next day that they were sweating and the room was stuffy. The fridge is a dorm fridge. Cooking and eating was quite limited. If your a light sleeper, this place isn't for you. The hallways are literally right outside the bedroom window and this hotel is right next to I-70.
Only positive was the price and having some restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. We wanted an inexpensive place to stay, but it was far from comfortable.
