we stayed here to take advantage of ski-ing at Vail. we have a more upmarket timeshare in Utah. Actually it is fine to spend longer in less upmarket places to get variety. Streamside is easy, decent size, looks into the trees and down at the stream, each of my husband and I had a bathroom ( always a plus) the laundry is downstairs, and in the jacuzzi up the steps at the pool I met interesting and pleasant people. Shopping for groceries and meals are a short walk ( or even shorter drive) away and the access to the slopes is a shuttle bus well set up for skiers
No air conditioning. We stayed in early September. Although it was in the 80s during the day, it was cool enough in the evening (and not humid!). The balcony faced trees, so no view. The pull-out sofa was exceptionally comfortable. The pool is shared by all of the Vacation Club buildings. I would expect that road noise is a problem at many of the Vail hotels as a number of them are close to I-70.
