My mom and I decided to use our timeshare to stay at Vail Run for a week. I didn't find it to be noisy, but we were also facing away from the interstate. Instead, we had a nice, up close view of one of the mountains and several of the beautiful homes of Vail. The rooms themselves were quaint and pleasant. We stayed in a studio-style unit, but there was plenty of room. We had two beds (not much walking space around the beds), a dresser, closet, full living room with TV, DVD, and coffee table, a dinning table with antler lighting fixtures, a full kitchen with everything without a blender, fireplace, and a patio. They ask that you leave the door shut while you shower so the steam won't set off the smoke detector. However, we had problems with the water temperature in our shower. Once I was able to get the water to a comfortable temperature, every now and then the water would get to be either ice cold, or so hot I had to get out of the water. We talked with the front desk and they looked into it, but it didn't really help. The beds were quite hard too. My mom and I just had a very hard time getting comfortable and staying comfortable. There is no A/C, but there is heating through the base panels and the fire place. However, you never need A/C because it is beautiful year round. The front staff was very nice, but they had a difficult time answering out questions (where are some local restaurants where they would hang out - less than $20 per plate - they gave us the name of a restaurant that was $40+ per plate), does the farmer's market sell fruit (they said no, but there was a lot of fruit there), and if you have a cooking question, I would wait for one of the women clerks. :)
I plan on visiting Vail again, but I will be choosing someplace else to stay. If you have never been to Vail, it is a very small town with some shopping, skiing, spas, and dinning. We were very busy though since we made plans to go rafting, horseback riding, on cave tours and a hummer tour. Many of the places will accept reservations, but you could probably call even the day of and be able to do whatever you would like. For most rafting tours, however, they need to have at least four people. The float trips are good for little kids and those who are more interested in enjoying the scenery.
