    Lodge at Vail-stay away

    there are better places to stay in vail, do not go, with the exception of location( front and Main) to pay $1200/night for every other day room service and an old run down hotel, there are better options. the staff was nice and morning breakfast was acceptable.

    Tired and overpriced hotel in Vail Village

    I have stayed at Lodge at Vail on approximately 5 different occasions. Each time, I say that I won’t return but do because of the proximity to Gondola One. This trip is the absolute last time I will stay here given how tired and overpriced the property is. Everywhere we went on the property something was broken: outdoor hot tub, spa showers and spa hot tub, coffee maker in our room. Even the morning coffee they put out is gone within 30 minutes and never refilled. Given that there is no grab and go breakfast option at Cucina, it is a hassle before heading out for a day of skiing to find something quick to eat on property. Additionally, this is the second year in a row that we have struggled to have hot water in our room. And, our room was tiny, horribly appointed and directly under Elways where we listened to kitchen noise every night. Despite calling management, on several issues, no one ever responded. With so many good options in Vail Village, this hotel should be overlooked until Vail Resorts gives it much needed and overdo rehaul.

    A Vail Classic

    I am a CO native and have always loved this place! Vail Pass was closed and I wandered in from a blizzard to ask a question about the village. The front desk girls welcomed my dogs and me with open arms… in fact they were so lovely that I booked a room on the spot. Within minutes, the valet had taken my car and there were dog beds, treats, and bowls in our room. A stunning old-world property that’s incredibly convenient and there is always a cozy fire in the lobby. Go!

    Thieves that never reply

    We booked one night las summer with booking. Everything was paid except the parking for the night, we knew it and I know I would paid 50 $. The hotel was partially empty, works on some of the building, but for one night it's not a pb. At departure I got my invoice with the 50 $ that I paid. 2 days after that I got a message from American express telling me that the hotel took 50$ and another 54 $. I texted the hotel and booking to get an answer : why did they take those 54 $. Booking finally told me that they had no answer for that, that I need to ask the hotel. The hotel NEVER reply to my many mails. I guess that they robbed me 54$ and don't want to explain ...
