My husband and I went to Killington to ski and stayed one night (December 19th 2013) at the North Star Lodge. After reading previous reviews about the heated pool not being hot enough, and knowing we'd be skiing 2 days and would want to soak sore muscles, we upgraded our room to a jacuzzi suite (room 317). This is what we found...
Pro's: The room was rather spacious compared to other suites we've rented in the past. It looked recently painted and was very clean. No bed bugs or visible dirt/dust and the bathroom was spotless. The staff at the North Star were incredibly nice and helpful. We had dinner on the 3rd floor. The food was yummy. They have small, but nice selection of beer and the bartender was great!
Con's: Our room had 2 thermostats and no matter how low we dropped the temp on both, the suite stayed at 80+ degrees. We had the balcony door open periodically over night to cool off. The bed, while supposedly new, was hard as a brick. The headboard was not mounted to the wall and even walking by the bed made it rattle. Needless to say, we did not get a good night sleep. Coffee the next morning was horrible and the "breakfast" was prepackaged donuts. On a minor note, the decor was really outdated. The curtains, bedspread and sofa need to go!
This lodge has so much potential. Some better coffee/breakfast, fix the thermostats, new beds and decor and this place could be great!
PS: The Jacuzzi tub was worth the upgrade. Really helped my achy muscles after a long day skiing!
