“Good value, convenient for skiing, great pre-stay customer service”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Taken in context, this lodge is a great place to stay on a skiing holiday. On a ski holiday, what we wish for mostly is a warm, dry room with a roof over our heads.... and convenient to the ski slopes, food outlets and the stores. Christie Lodge provides all that at a good rate. The free ski bus stops right at the front door and runs at 15 minute intervals. Conversations on the bus are always fun and a great way to meet pleasant people with the same interest in skiing. How good is that?

Then there is a Subway in the lodge itself, with good reasonably priced food available (eg Bob's Place - a must for any Avon visitor!) and sports stores, all within 5 mins walking distance. Not to mention a Super Walmart and Home Depot within 5 mins drive. Makes you wonder why you would pay a fortune to stay at Beaver Creek?!

Their customer service and patience in answering our pre-stay enquiries was second to none. They were friendly and helpful.

Sure, the lodge is not new and it is hardly a 5-star establishment. But as far as I am concerned, the more economical room rate allows me to have a longer ski holiday. And more skiing makes me happier! I would stay at Christie Lodge anytime.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the town rather than I-70

The rooms are nice but awkward because you walk into the bedroom instead of the living room. Request the back building. It's much quieter. The Avon busses get you everywhere and there are a bunch of restaurants within walking distance (although I prefered a rotisserie chicken from grocery store also close by).

Clean, spacious rooms with kitchenettes. TV in the room made me feel nostalgic, I had one like it in college (I’m 47 years old now). But I wasn’t there to watch TV. Bedroom windows face the courtyard and it can get a little noisy. Bus stops right at the front door. Busses don’t run late, but there is a shuttle stop nearby and shuttles to and from Beaver Creek run until about 2am. I already booked my next stay at Christie.

The lodge is convenient to the slopes - the shuttle stops in front of the hotel. The room was clean, with an odd floor plan - the bed was next to the door, so the hallway noise was loud at times. The living room was away from the hallway, I guess to allow access to the patio, which had the view of a cement wall. These minor issues notwithstanding, the place is a good value in an area known for high priced accommodations. This is definitely designed for a budget traveller. Would recommend staying there if you don't need the Ritz experience.

This property doesn't claim to be your 5 star, 5 diamond hotel in Vail and its not. You get what you pay for. I stayed here for two night and had a great time. The size of the room was very large and had everything you would possibly need. My only complaint was the AC/Heating didn't work. Hopefully they will fix this as otherwise it was a great place to stay/ski. Bus comes to the front door for Vail and Beaver Creek. There is a pool/hot tub. Yes, the stairs are confusing and the lobby smells like a pool (since the pool is indoors) but this is no reason not to book. The prices are very affordable and we have no regrets with staying there. We were there to sleep and ski. For the price we paid it was excellent.

This hotel is a few minutes outside of Vail and just below Beaver Creek. For those on a budget and willing to sacrifice location, the Christie Lodge offers affordable rates and full kitchens, enabling travelers to prepare some meals in the room.

The Christie Lodge is average, I think the pictures made it look a little nicer than it is. I like the location, short bus ride to the mountain and a walk to get something to eat. Bed wasn't too bad, perfect set up for 2 people. FYI - you have to buy your own firewood in the lobby ($3 for 1 duraflame log). "Comforter" on bed not warm. I expected to at least have a comforter that provides more warmth than a sheet. It was like something you would see at Motel 6. Good price for what you get. My sugesstion to people going there - bring your own comforter and firewood!

Room Tip: There was a door between the bedroom and the living room which had a pull out couch - so that is nic...
