We were on vacation with our family in Vail, and brought along our tennis racquets. We showed up at the Vail Racquet Club unannounced, and were able to get a court right away. It was $15 for an hour, and $20 for an hour and a half. This is somewhat less than the club where I play at home. The courts are Har-Tru clay, and I had never played on it before, so that was interesting. I didn't find any special difficulty playing on the surface. You are encouraged to brush the courts with brushes provided on each court after you finish playing, which took a few minutes. The staff was helpful and friendly. They had complimentary sunscreen if you forgot yours (which we had!). All in all, it was a great time spent in Vail on vacation.

We just returned from a two night stay at the Vail Raquet Club and we can say that we would like to go back. Why? The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful in the processes of making a reservation, handling requests, and checking us out. Also, the one bedroom unit that we stayed in was in a peaceful location by the flowing creek, it was cozy, and comfortable for us and our two children aged 10 and 14. We appreciated being able to cook in the very nice kitchen, and the fact that there were one and a half bathrooms. We also appreciated the cleanliness of the unit. It was a little farther from Vail village than what we thought, about three miles, but we had our car and we heard that the free Vail bus stops out front somewhere, too.

We received a special Spring price which was great considering it was bigger than a hotel room and had a fully supplied kitchen. It was also at the end of May, beginning of June so it was not too noisy or crowded at the hot tub or pool.

We advise anyone who stays here, though, to take your own soap as the ones they leave for you crumble when you open the package. Also, if you enjoy coffee in the mornings, you should take your own, although they do have some in the lobby in any case. Additionally, they skipped over our unit for housekeeping one day, but we called them in the late afternoon and were able to get fresh towels, and more paper towels for the kitchen.

Stayed in an updated 2 bedroom condo - great layout, had everything I would have asked for and more! Nice gym facility, close to mtn with shuttle service within 2 minutes walking from the unit. Stayed with 3 friends and had a great experience - we will definitely stay here again!

The Racquet Club in East Vail is an excellent alternative to more expensive places in the village. There is a terrific health club with huge outdoor pool, ten tennis courts for your summertime pleasure, easy walking and biking nearby, and the soothing sound of Gore Creek running just outside your bedroom door. One bit of advice, however - ask what level of unit you can get. The units range from Platinum (all the bells and whistles) to Bronze (some 70's vintage decor) and the price is the same for all of them. The experience can be very different, depending on what level of unit you get!

Don't let this pass you by. Great clean outdoor hot tub that looks up to mountain wall right across the street. Great out door lap pool kept at appropriate temp year around. Access includes free classes. Tuesday 6:30pm evening yoga is great. Weight and machine room available along with outdoor tennis. In and out all day access with daily pass. On local free bus line or plenty of free parking.
