    Terrible Stay

    I have never written a bad review but had to let folks know the latest with the Lodge at Vail. Valet (tipped at arrival and departure) was just incompetent, breakfast restaurant was 30-40 minutes late with my to-go order (daughter had a ski school appointment) , front desk staff really rude with basic questions like pool/hot tub, location, dinner options etc. The only savior was that I took my kids to the pool/hot tub and everyone was so friendly and nice! This place needs an overall manager or retrain the staff. Lots of issues like this show that there is not someone on staff that leads or really cares. Most of the employees don’t really care about the guests. I even left by giving them the benefit of the doubt and tipped the bell guy $20 and he left my luggage outside my car and was helping someone else! So crazy....I almost asked for my tip back.

    Great hotel!!!

    What a gem! I had the best stay at the Lodge at Vail! I spent 10 nights at the hotel and had only positive experiences at all times and in all respects. Located within less than a minute walk from the Gondola, close to restaurants and shops. The staff at the hotel was absolutely amazing: very professional, friendly and accommodating! They make you feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed at all times. The room and all the common areas at the hotel were always spotless clean. I strongly recommend this hotel and would love to come back!

    Decent for Vail..on a budget

    Price was typical for Vail (Vail is expensive overrall). Location was walking distance to restaurants & gondola. Room was average...we were content for what we paid considering the area. We went during Covid July 2020---so the staff was short. (no concierge, limited office staff etc) Free parking is a few blocks walk. Vail is"G-rated "& family friendly...great for small kids & Grandma. If you're looking for a bar/pub, try The George. Cheaper food options are in Frisco, Breckenridge etc. We flew into DEN airport and rented car. I recommend renting car and exploring.
