Here is the deal - We got a room for 5 people (we brought a baby bed and our dog, too) and we got 2 double beds. Overall, i was expecting way worse from reading the reviews. It was not that bad, at all! Now, if my baby was still crawling, I would've been more grossed out because the carpet is very dirty. But, the sheets were clean, the bathroom appeared clean, it is what it is: a checp place to stay. In any small city, this hotel room would probably be 30-40 dollars, but we paid 75/night.....and come on people, it is vail. We would stay here again, if we needed to save money. The man who was there at the desk was kind and the breakfast consisted of this : donuts, cheerios or corn flakes, milk, orange juice, packets of oatmeal, coffee and banana's. Here's my take on the place: it's a place to stay if you aren't planning on staying at the hotel for very long during the day anyway. If they got new carpet, updated their comforters and drapes, towels, etc. it would really spruce the place up. The outside carpet could use some spiffying up, too. The pool and hot tub looked functional, not luxurious, but functional. It was too cold for us to use it though. We kept our dog in it's kennel while we were there. Oh yeah, it wasn't super clean, but it wasn't super dirty, either. The phone book had some nasty goo on it & the dresser could've been wiped more clean, but overall - it's the cheapest in vail & not as bad as a lot of the reviews stated. The room had a tv, too. no micro or fridge. The outside is cute, the insides need some TLC :) This hotel is close to 2 parks for the kids, too. one across the highway on the other frontage road and one just a block or two down the road. No wireless internet or printer available, either, but they do have a computer in the reception area you can use. Right near the hwy, so expect to hear traffic when windows are open. It deserves 3 and a half stars because of the "dingy" factor, but I'll give it 4 because management was friendly and helpful! This could be 4 stars for sure if they'd get new curtains, bed comforters, towels and carpet! Maybe some mints on the bed, lol! What did you think?! this was a holiday inn?!
