“Surprisingly pretty good -- especially for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2007

I booked a studio here on bookit for $80 a night. We were very pleased to receive a large one bedroom with a huge stone fireplace. For the price, this was absolutely wonderful.

These are garden-style condos. The condos are individually owned, so the decor varies. Ours was decorated pretty nicely. We had a cute little kitchen with a nice breakfast bar and granite countertops. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, glassware, pots, pans, etc.

The little store downstairs was convenient, although somewhat pricey. The shuttle bus to Vail Village picked up right outside the property. The surrounding area was pretty quiet.

This is a good choice if you are looking for value and don't mind taking the shuttle to Vail Village. It does not seem to be well-known, as the airport shuttle bus driver was not familiar with it, and neither were any of the other passengers. The stairs of the property were icy.

The check-in instructions I received from bookit told me to go to some building that did not exist. There was an office at the front of the property where we checked in. After we left, there was an additional charge on my credit card. However, I called, and it was quickly corrected with no problems.

Overall, this was a great value, and we were very pleased with our stay.

  • Liked — cozy fireplace, great price, large condo
  • Disliked — icy stairs, distance from Vail Village
  • Stayed December 2005, travelled as a couple

We have just returned from spending Xmas in Vail.

We stayed at the Pitkin Creek condos, condo 11E to be precise.

The location is good and there is a free ski shuttle service that operates every 15 mins from right outside the condos.

We travelled with three other families and unfortunately our condo was not that great. It was in desperate need of a lick of paint and a good clean. There was so much dust on the TV screen I could have written my name in it. The kitchen cupboards were full of out of date food, dating back to 1999!!! There was so much food in there we couldn't store any of ours in the cupboards.

The beds were clean and we had fresh towels on arrival, but having compared our condo to our friends I was very disappointed.

The condos have many steps and the parking lot was very icy, and not gritted, which made it dangerous with our small children getting in and out. Only when a member of our party fell and broke her arm, in the parking lot, did they make a pathetic attempt to grit.

There is a good little supermarket/liquor store on site, very reasonably priced and very nice couple who run it.

Fortunately we didn't spend much time in the condo so didn't let it spoil wonderful Vail.

The Vail Village is very upmarket with lots of lovely shopping, bars and restaurants.

I was a first time skiier and had two days of lessons. The instructors were fabulous and I had a very positive first time skiing experince and look forward to next time.

The kids center is a bit chaotic to register etc, no orderely lines so we just followed rest of the people in there and pushed right in.

The kids center staff were very good and enthusiastic.

Overall we had a great time in Vail just wish the accomodation had been better.
