Large room, old, not in proper working condition.

Posted Feb 23, 2017
Hotel is a maze. There are no numbers to help you find your room in this hodge-podge place. I think because I paid less through Expedia they gave me the oldest farthest room that was not improper working condition. Toilets didn't flush, no water pressure, and sink didn't drain. Housekeeping was MIA, wouldn't even take dirty towels from our room after 3 days!! The hospitality was 3rd class or non existent. I was even asked about my stay at checkout. They just took my keys and said "anything else". Really?? Who trains these people? Waste of our money!!

Hotel is AVerage

Posted Feb 12, 2017
Pros: The hotel has a shuttle to Beaver Creek. The pool and hot tub were very nice.
Cons: Update and renovate the rooms. The rooms are very small and the sliding glass door in the livingroom leaks alot of cold air into the room.
We had booked a room several weeks in advance. At the last minute we had to arrange to arrive a day early. Although the hotel did accommodate us, they charged us 3 times the nightly rate. We felt this was highway robbery. The rooms are clean, very small, and need major updating. The bedroom has a window to the hallwlay and you hear people coming and going all night long. The hot tub and pool were clean and neat, the television service is very limited to local channels. The front desk staff is not very friendly or helpful.

Reasonable place to stay in Vail valley

Posted Feb 3, 2017
Pros: Condos fully outfitted to cook simple meal.
Cons: Update the atrium. Looks dated.
These are older condos just off I-70 at Avon. Our room was recently remodeled and nice. A little cramped in bedroom. Sofa sleeper was next to sliding door and a little cold in the room with only one blanket provided. Single burner stove top, bar sink, microwave and dishwasher with pans, plates and utensils provided. Could cook basic stuff. Bus stop at the property to take you to Beaver Creek. About 3 blocks or short bus ride to Vail bus. Game room, pool and hot tub inside the atrium, but closed at 9:00. After dining out, no opportunity to use them. Atrium area looks straight out of the '80 or 90's.

Dishonest booking practice

Posted Jan 31, 2017
I booked and paid for a room with this hotel online. When I arrived I was told I had to produce my credit card which is standard, but what is not standard is that I was told they were putting a mandatory $100 hold fee on my credit card. Nowhere on their website does it mention this and as of today, 3 days later, the charge is still on my card. I will never stay here again. Their are other hotels that do not employ this deceptive practice.

Hello, I am sorry that you feel we have been dishonest about our incidental charge. This charge information is listed in the terms and conditions which guests are required agree to when booking. It is also listed on the email confirmations when booking direct. Returning the funds does typically take 3-5 business days. If you still have not received it you will need to check with your bank. We hope that you will reconsider your decision for a future visit.

Mediocre hotel on Avon bus route.

Posted Jan 23, 2017
Dated, small rooms, awkward layout, right on interstate.

great location - tired/worn out room

Posted Jan 13, 2017
Pros: Great Vietnamese restaurant in lobby. Bus service at door - very convenient.
Cons: See above
Location: Skiing at Beaver Creek resort
Very nice staff. Great location. Easy access to the ski area and restaurants. Room was worn out and in need of major remodeling. Mold in bathroom, bouncy floor in entrance way, indicative of rotten sub-floor (presumably from years of having melting snow from ski equipment set there by guests), mattress should have been thrown out a few years ago, extra "bed" not really standard size (some odd, long, skinny pad), room arranged so that the bed is right next to the window facing the atrium - noisy most hours, very strange layout of the room and the complex itself.

Ski vacation to Beaver Creek

Posted Jan 13, 2017
Pros: Great location with grocery and places to eat within walking distance.
Location: A full grocery was a block away and provide items to for breakfast so we could eat in the room each day. An Italian restaurant was across the street
This hotel has a great location near Beaver Creek and just down the valley from Vail. The under cover parking came in handy during the recent snow storms. The hotel has an interesting room arrangement that basically gives you two bedroom with a shared bath. The only issue we experienced in three nights was a noisy neighbor in the room above our room. The hotel was able to move us to another room the next day.
