Wonderful location right next to the mountain and gondola! bike rentals were great for the warm weather and getting in and around the town! The room was very clean and looked nice, as was most of the staff, Stanton was professional and very personable A+. Really my only complaint is the young short brunette girl at the desk Liza possibly,... More

We rented a privately owned condo from Wyndham Vacations. The unit was very nice - and the view from the deck was gorgeous. We were right above Gore Creek - and since my husband is a fly fisherman - this was perfect access. Lion Square Lodge also is a hotel - so there is a wonderful lobby and frond desk.... More

Stayed on a Saturday evening for 1 night. Price $220. Seems new on the outside, but the rooms felt old, especially the bathrooms. Nice to see a box fan in the room and gated parking. Easy location to get to.

The location is excellent for any season, but I was super disappointed with the room and maintenance. We reserved and received a one bedroom. South building, mountain view with a nice deck and even full size grill (we did not have time to use it, but nice touch). The rest of the room was super dated! Old carpet that is... More

Stayed here for a night in condo. This property sits right next to a creek and we could hear the soothing sounds of flowing water in the night. This is also close to the Gondola. The attached restaurant was pretty bad, though. We went for a dinner and the food was not good at all. The hotel had complimentary bike... More

We stayed in 2 different one bedroom condos. Both had a sleeping loft and each had two bathrooms (one upstairs, one down). One of the units was far nicer than the other in that it had a more modern bathroom (a delux shower rather than a tub), a built in fireplace rather than a standing stove, and an open, more... More

I took my 12 yr old and several friends for a birthday celebration. The location was amazing, steps from the Gondola if you go out the right side of it ;) Nice warm pool, 2 hot tubs and a nice sitting are around while they played. There is a great Mexican Restaurant on site with a patio overlooking the pool.... More

Friendly hotel with a variety of rooms. Creekside rooms have a lovely view. No A/C in the summer but sounds of river are pretty great. Free rental cruiser bikes are fun. Nice pool area and walking distance to restaurants in Lionshead and Vail.

This hotel is expensive, dated and does NOT have a 3 1/2 star hotel quality. I booked a valley view room expecting a view of the valley or the square. Valley view means you will be facing a parking lot. There is no A/C so it's stuffy in the summer. You get a box fan as your cooling system. It... More
