Reviewed 5 December 2010

We stayed in this fabulous 2-bedroom condo for about half the cost of some of the pricey Vail hotels. Location was great! Our unit was very clean and comfortable. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and the shuttle was very convenient. If you don't feel like cooking, have a great breakfast at Westside Cafe just down the street.

Got an amazing deal at Simba Run and spent 9 nights there. Very clean and the free shuttle is great. Only problem was the sleeper couch, the springs were broken but otherwise very enjoyable stay.

A lovely lobby area greets you with a seating area that overlooks the pool. This area as computer access for e-mail and boarding pass printing and a free coffee station with excellent coffee.

The front desk staff are courteous and helpful answering all of our questions. The management and housekeeping staff are hardworking and the resort is very clean and well maintained.

We loved the large swimming pool and hot tubs but did not leave enough energy this trip to take use of their nice exercise room.

As far as our unit it was great. A kitchen that was well stocked for us to cook any of our meals and ample cabinet space to buy our own groceries. Comfortable furniture and beds were a welcomed treat. Each of our bedrooms had a TV as well as the living area having TV and DVD. The unit allows for great family fun playing games around the dining room table.

This hidden gem is a short distance to grocery shopping and the local, free bus and during the ski season they have their own shuttle to take you to the main areas of Vail Village so once you park your car, you don't really need it until you are ready to leave.

Simba Run is a great place to stay when travelling to Vail. The rooms are spotless. The staff goes out of their way for guests. The service overall was outstanding. Shuttle service from Simba Run is extremely convenient and dependable. I have been skiing Vail for many years now. I consider the best choice in that area. I have not found better.

Simba Run is a delight. The condo's are spacious and have beautiful views of the valley and the ski mountains. It's smack dab in the middle of the valley, so you're never far from anything.

The staff was very helpfull and more than willing to help me out. They have all the local establishment phone numbers at their fingertips. When a light bulb was burned out and when I needed instruction on the icemaker, help was at my door within 10 minutes.

The indoor swimming pool is huge. Turning laps was nice since I wasn't flipping every 20 feet. The Jucuzi is well maintained. It looks like it was recently reconstructed. Everything was imaculate.

For skiers, a big plus is the locker room right next to the shuttle stop -- no schlepping of gear all over creation. The best part of Simba Run is the shuttle arrangement. During the day, the shuttles that get us to the mountain run in a continuous loop. That means the average wait time is 5 minutes -- maximum 15. But the wait is not a problem. It is under cover so you don't have to stand in the weather (snow, rain, boiling sun) waiting for it. I Just sat and relaxed and talked to others about the upcoming day.

The shuttles run people to three entry points on the ski mountain, the kids ski school and, after the mountain closes, the supermarket, and the village. Renting a car is not really needed.

I've already booked my next trip in December.

Mostly everything was fine with our stay, except for the check in person. When we first checked in, he wasn't sure if we were getting the 2 floor condo, so I guess to be safe he said "no". I reserved it 2 weeks prior. Later, he changed his answer. I find that pretty unprofessional for him to not know where his guests are staying - so a change of staff would do them well. Anyway, we got the 2 floor condo. What I really enjoy about staying in condos is that there is more of a home feel, instead of a hotel room setting. The condo was very spacious and well equipped. The bathrooms were a little on the small side. It would definetly be a great stay for a family.
Also note that the hot tub is outdoors, which is nice for both winter and summer (if you enjoy that); but I wasn't too crazy about the oldish looking pool area.
