“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

We are just finishing our 5th annual weeklong stay at Simba Run. We love this condo, the units are clean and have great kitchens, the shuttle to the base lodges at Vail Village and Lionshead (and Golden Peak if you ask nice) are quick and frequent, the staff is always super friendly and accomodating, and we always meet fun people in the hot tub after our ski/board day. We wish the pool was a little warmer, but other than that Simba Run is just perfect for us and the best value by far we've found in Vail.

Well managed, clean, everything you needed in condo. Great outdoor jacuzzi, free Starbucks coffee and cocoa in lobby, firewood provided. I was concerned about being on other side of I-70 from Vail Village and skiing, but with their own shuttle to lifts and town, it was real easy. If you are here without a car, the shuttle has schedule for grocery store shopping. If you want to cook in, rather than go to restaurants at night (also much less expensive) it works out very well here. We had 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit. Requested "split" unit, with 1 bedroom and bath on one level and everything else down at next level. It afforded more privacy. Also nice if you come with car ($10/day parking), the garage is underground with elevator. Frequent shuttle picks you up here also for skiing, so no waiting outdoors. Highly recommend.

Simba Run is our favorite place to stay in Vail. The condos our spacious and clean, the staff is always friendly and helpful. Michele and Jeff are superb and always go out of their way to make us feel at home. The location is perfect, the condo shuttle is great and you never have to drive yourself. Checking out is always sad and hope time fly’s so we can come back again the following December. My wife and mother-in-law will not stay anywhere else in Vail but Simba Run. 100% satisfaction!

I had a very clean, very nicely appointed 2 BR condo just outside the village. I'm not sure about other guests who said their internet wasn't free, but I had no problem using free wireless in the building.

The only downside was an obnoxious room about 4 doors down filled with what seemed like 8 or so 20ish year old guys. One time in the middle of the night they had a very noisy fight and smoked cigarettes in the hallway despite the building being no smoking. The rest of our stay was uneventful, so I assume management took care of the problematic guests.

Also, if traffic noise bothers you, then you should take in to consideration that the family room overlooks I70 (bedrooms are on the opposite side of the building and are reasonably quiet). The traffic noise in my unit was significant in the family room.

Still, for the price I was very satisfied with my stay and would definitely consider staying here again next time I'm up in Vail.

We stayed here Dec 16 to Dec 19, 2012, and enjoyed our stay. Simba Run offers a lot of room and convenience for pricey Vail. Our condo had one bed and bath upstairs and the kitchen, dining and living area and second bed and bath downstairs. Such arrangement gave the adults a little more privacy and space. We never had to wait more than about 5 to 7 minutes for the shuttle to Vail Village or Lions Head and loved the jacuzzi (both one indoors and out), pool (biggest in Vail according to the desk clerk) and steam rooms. Like other condos with a long hallway and multiple levels, we sometimes heard noise from the neighbors but brought along a clock with a white noise function and slept well after the first night. You also might want to bring your own pillow; the ones provided weren't the most comfy. While our unit wasn't luxurious, it offered a great, convenient value -- perfect for a family ski weekend. P.S. Appreciated the tips on drop off location and ski resorts from the shuttle driver.

This was a very nice 2 bedroom condo we stayed in. Very clean. The view from our balcony was very nice. We will stay here again when we return to Vail. The only thing was the internet in the condo is not free. You must go to the lobby to access the Simba Run wifi. Other wise you can get wifi for a fee in the condo.

The suite was very high quality and the rooms were excellent -- far above my expectations. The only drawback is the distance from Vail Village, but there is a free bus service.
