Holiday Inn - Apex Vail
Travel Blogs from Vail
Ein paar Tage in den Rockies verbringen war ein klares Ziel unserer Reise. Ein weiteres Must-Do (Wandern in den Rockies) kann abgehackt werden. Es war auch interessant, einen US-Skiort mit Zermatt vergleichen zu können.
Second day on the road was much less eventful. Utah and Colorado are amazing!!!! Such a beautiful dive... We are taking off this am to see Jack's silver mine in Idaho Springs then its another 20 hrs to Crandon. Since we are are in no rush we will take 2 days to get there and arrive sometime Saturday. Will take a little longer to get on the road because we have a leaky tire that luckily never ...

A video of a fun day from the Beav.
Vail is considered the high end mountain. I think Beaver Creek seems to be the more high end resort. Vail seems to be a fun mountain and the village is full cool shops. The bars and restaurant are full of people and good times to be had. A visit to Vail's village alone is well worth it. The shops, restaurants and bars are well worth it.
The mountain is incredible. As ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn - Apex Vail
Just the basics, great location!
Found this to be a basic ski hotel, nothing fancy and certainly nothing pampering. Didn't realize how noisy it would be, heard people walking around with skis on all hours of the day/night. Woke up VERY early with the smell of bacon permeating from the room next door to ours, that was a little much! The location is great and price was really good... $89 in March. The mattress was less than desirable... could almost feel the coils... maybe this room wasn't comparable to others... it was a last minute decision and everyone was sold out. The lobby was very nice and staff was very helpful!
Vail: Apex Condominums (part of Holiday Inn) in West Vail
This property is located across the interstate from Lionshead/Vial Village on the north side of I-70. It is respectable, but certainly not anything special. You are paying for value for the location. They do have one computer terminal set up with high speed online access and free coffee in a small lobby. The property is in the same building as a casual diner type place more popular with locals/experienced tourists. It is also located adjacent to a strip mall that contains a liqour store, Subway, McDonalds and Taco Bell. A full size grocery store is slightly farther down but still walkable.
Just got back from Vail. Vail itself is amazing go you will love it. But not this hotel/condo. We picked this Apex Holiday Inn for the outdoor pool to swim in the heated water outside in winter. The pool water is kept so icy freezing cold that on the sold out presidents' day weekend not one person could swim in the pool. Instead all the guests crowded into the indoor hot tub. We have stayed at many other ski resort hotels with outdoor pools and they are usually warm and fantastic after a day on the slopes. Stay somewhere else if the outdoor pool is important to you. We argued with the management to turn up the heat but they could care less about it and said the water is kept at this temperature year round. Maybe in July it is swimable? Guests must call the front desk repeatedly to get towels delivered to the hot tub area. Watching so many guests complain about the pool and management refusing to do anything was a real turn off to this place.
Gret place to stay, great value for money for Vail
We stayed in affordable West Vail, but you are only a bus ride away from the slopes. Hotel runs a shuttle bus, and the free town bus runs till 2am. Next to Safeways, pharmacy, Sandbar Grill - the liveliest bar we found. Breakfast is superb in the Westside Cafe next to hotel, also the great asian/sushi bar Nozawa is in the hotel. Rooms more than adequate, staff very friendly and attentive, great hot hot-tub. All in all, a very enjoyable and pleasant stay, and we shall be returning
It's a Holiday Inn - not the Ritz
My family and I spent an evening at the Holiday Inn and had a pleasant stay. As with all of my stays at a Holiday Inns, I kept my expectations low. If you are looking for a place to rest your head at a reasonable price, this might be your place. Just don't expect to be pampered or the finer things that you may expect at a more upscale hotel/resort.
The complimentary shuttle service to Lionshead and Vail Village was very convenient and the drivers were very friendly. The lobby and the hotel was very cozy including leather chairs, sofas, wood floors, and high wood-beamed ceilings - typical ski resort environment. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but not extravagant.
No Room at the Inn
We had a reservation for the weekend of 12/9/05 thru 12/13/05, our flight was delayed on the east coast due to bad weather. This not being the first time I had traveled I called the hotel direct to inform them we would arrive at 5:30am and to not give the prepaid room away. When we did get there at 6:00am they had sold the room and they cancelled the reservation for the next 3 nights as well. Management was nonexistent and did nothing but blame us for asking why they still kept the money.
We stayed at the Evergreen Lodge and had a great weekend.
For many years this hotel was known as the WEST VAIL LODGE, WEST VAIL INN, INN AT WEST VAIL, and similar permutations. Now, after a ten million dollar renovation it has been transformed into the HOLIDAY INN and the APEX LODGE. It's still located on the frontage road on the North side of the highway about as far away from Vail Village as you can get without leaving Vail entirely.
Loved Vail, did not get much rest or satisfaction here
My son and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in February for a ski vacation. We asked before booking if the hotel was quiet as we wanted to be sure to get some sleep. On our second night, we were kept up ALL night by partiers throughout the hall, despite calling the front desk to address the situation. Hotel management did not do anything nor compensate us in any way for this. Rooms were very clean, updated. Breakfast was okay for what we were looking. Other on site restaurants were likewise good quality and reasonably priced, especially for Vail. Shuttle was not very frequent, but driver was courteous. Would think twice before staying here again.
Just got back from Vail - It was amazing! The Holiday Inn was just a plain boring hotel and not at all cheap. Nothing was wrong with it, it was just not very exciting. The room was very clean, the bathroom was remodeled with granite!!! which was very strange since the sheets on the bed were the worst I ever slept in. My husband used the pool and hottub and said it was fine. The hotel was in a great location and they have a shuttle to take you to wherever you want within 3 miles. The Town of Vail was less than 5 minutes by car, Lionshead was about 3 minutes. There is a free breakfast included in your room rate - just bagels, donuts, juice and coffee. There is a Safeway within walking distance - we stocked up on water and got some fresh bagels and coffee there. There is a Starbucks in the Safeway. I would not stay there again, its just not my type of hotel.
