We stayed at the Wren for a week in Oct 2011. We loved it. There was absolutely nothing we could complain about. The location is excellent for walks into Vail Village and for sightseeing. The kitchen is well stocked.

This one we will go back to for sure!

We stayed for a week (timeshare exchange) and really appreciated the location as being so 'centralized' for our sightseeing of the Colorado Mtns. The staff was friendly and offered tips on how to maximize our stay. The big disappointment is that they are one bedroom units and the hide-a-bed is perhaps one of the most uncomfortable i've ever slept on !

The Wren offers a great location! It is walking distance to everything and only a few minutes walk to the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens and the Gerald Ford Ampitheater. The condos are a bit run-down, but very clean and comfortably furnished. The attention to detail on the part of the staff was excellent. They offered excellent advice on local sights and restaurants and provided great coffee, tea and lemonade all day everyday. We were especially impressed with the nice hot tubs and pool area. Our main concerns were the frayed carpet, worn looking drapes and minimal parking offered. In general, it was a nice place to stay.

We stayed at The Wren when we were in town for a summer wedding. It's a great location, walking distance to the Village which has extensive choices for restaurants and shopping. The best things about our condo were the views of Vail Mountain (we were on the 4th floor) and the sound of the river rushing by if we left our sliding door open. It was a short walk down the path by the river to the Ampitheater - what a treat to not have to drive and park if you're in town for a concert. The shuttle buses are available right down the street to take you in to Lionshead or anywhere the Vail Town bus goes. I would love to stay here in the winter! Imagine - lodging right by Vail Village, walking distance to the slopes and free parking. Can't beat that!
Friendly staff, modest pool area, nice community room.
We will be back!

Disorganized front end employees, lost our credit card info (?!) and we had to resubmit. Clean room and in Vail, so that was great. High priced town however. The Wren is showing signs of deteriorating, also, no restaurant on site. A detraction.

Room Tip: Ask for first floor room,

Our Holiday ski vacation at the Wren worked out nicely. Our one bedroom unit was a bit cramped, but our two children were perfectly comfortable on the fold out bed. The water was always hot for a bath or shower, kitchen was well stocked and the unit was fresh and acceptably clean. We would stay there again. Do not expect to be waited on hand and foot, though.

The Wren staff failed to inform its customers of planned renovations for the fall time period. Upon our arrival we found the parking lot strewn with constrruction equipment , and workers. Renovation included stonework on the front of the building, major painting underway, and other maintenance to include the use of air compressors, drilling, scaffolding, ladders, etc... Just making our way to and from our room was like traveling through a maze. Parking is at your own risk, with extreme chance of damage to your vehicle. Even with the view, I recommend looking elseware!
