Review Summary



  • The hotel is dated, especially the room decor
  • No air conditioning

Bottom Line

The mid-range Evergreen Lodge is a good value, and is ideal for those looking to spend time exploring all of Vail, since it is within walking distance of both Vail Village and Lionshead Village. Its list of amenities includes a kid-friendly game room, heated pool, a casual restaurant, and a sports bar with pool tables. The decor is somewhat dated, however, and there is no air conditioning.

Oyster Hotel Review


Traditional lodge-style decor and lots of amenities, but could use updating

The Evergreen Lodge is a great choice for families on a budget, as it offers an outdoor, year-round pool with great views, a game room featuring air hockey and video arcade games, and nice perks such as free parking and Wi-Fi.

The lobby is a large, open space, with a peaked, wood beam ceiling and just a few clusters of overstuffed chairs and couches. It is decorated in classic lodge style, with wood accents and a large stone fireplace.

Although the guest rooms had their bedding updated from paisley bedspreads to plain white comforters, the plaid curtains, patterned furniture, and worn carpets need updating.


Nestled between Vail Village and Lionshead Village, and within walking distance of the slopes

All standard rooms have mini-fridges and coffee makers, and all condos have full kitchens

Standard King Room

The Evergreen Lodge offers a mix of standard guest rooms and privately owned condos. The in-room amenities add up to a great value, although the decor is a bit dated.

Standard in-room amenities include mini-fridges, coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. The bathrooms offer shower/tub combos and dual sinks, but have a no-frills look that could use updating.

The condos are individually owned and decorated, but all have living areas and full kitchens stocked with utensils. Condos specifically come with underground parking, which is a definite perk in the winter months.
