Review: Roost Lodge

1783 North Frontage Road
Vail, CO 81657

Vail is known for being a bit “hoity-toity” (Vail Village is home to a surprising array of fur coat boutiques). However, travelers on a shoestring budget can find ways to navigate Vail’s wealthy waters.

Roost Lodge is the ideal start. Its small, simple accommodations heartily welcome anyone who would rather spend money on a few extra cocktails than an extra hot tub. (Rooms from $99 per night.)

Fly into the Eagle County Airport or the Denver International Airport, then take a shuttle or rent a car to get to Vail. See our Vail transportation guide for more information.
