“Wow! What a difference!”
Reviewed 1 August 2005

We had stayed at the Chalet Killington before, honestly because we liked the staff not the hotel. What a difference on our last visit. They have done a major amount of work on the place. They were even finishing up a new pool in July. If you have been there before and thought it was so-so, give it another try. Everyone's favorite desk girl has been hard at work. Good job girl!

After arriving at the chalet killington having just completed a 14 hour door to door journey from the south coast of england, my initial impression was that the hotel was very basic. after a good nights kip and a few hours spent in the building the next day i started to realise how nice the place was. it is a basic budget accomodation but the staff could not have been friendlier, the place was very clean and comfortable, and sitting around the open fire with a cold beer after a knackering day on the slopes was perfect. the hotel has a very warm laid back atmosphere, a cheap bar, good food and a very hot hot tub, what more could you want at this price. people who have slagged this hotel off in previous reveiws obviously expected far too much as it says in all brochures its a budget accomodation, but it is very relaxing and the atmosphere around the place makes up for that by a long long way. all you moany gits of who most are american might i add, should not be so damn tight and pay for a five star if thats what you want. i loved this place and would stay again, well done to all the staff at this family run place for makin it a great trip !!!!

My son and I just spent three nights at the Chalet Killington on Jan. 17-20th, 2005. The stay was very nice. The rooms where clean, plenty of nice, big pillows and the bathroom very accommodating. The hot tub was great and clean. The recreation room was a pleasant extra for us to challenge each other at ping pong and pool. The Baja Burrito was a very nice bar and restaurant located in the lodge for your beverages in the evening or the free breakfast in the morning. I will definitely return to this lodge the next time I go to Killington.

I had made my reservations for the Chalet Killington back in September 2003, so imagine my dismay when, two weeks before my mid-March vacation, I stumbled on this review page and read the mostly negative reviews of the establishment. Now, imagine my relief when I arrived at the Chalet and found none of the poor conditions I'd read about! True, the place is not fancy--if what you're looking for is a stay in luxurious surroundings, the Chalet is not for you. However, if like me, you want a clean, comfortable, affordable place to use as home base for a ski trip, the Chalet is a good choice. It's conveniently located to the slopes and other businesses with ample parking; the beds were comfortable (mine did not have the infamous one-inch-thick pillows); the free breakfast was a real breakfast with pancakes, omelets, eggs, bacon or sausage, etc.; and the staff, from housekeeping on up to management, were as friendly and helpful as you could wish. I didn't use the hot tub because I forgot my bathing suit, but I noticed lots of other guests using it, so I guess it was also satisfactory.

A word about security: as a woman traveling alone I have to be alert to whether or not a place feels safe to me, and I felt perfectly at ease here. I could sleep at night or go off during the day and not worry that myself or my belongings were in danger.

The bathroom was clean, in good repair, and well-stocked with towels, which were replenished daily.

On the negative side, the walls are a bit thin and the building is fairly old, so you hear some creaks and thumps, and noise from the other guests. I am not bothered by a little noise, but those who are ultra-sensitive about such things may be happier elsewhere.

I don't have kids, and there weren't many there during my six-day stay, but there was a large gameroom downstairs that kids would probably enjoy hanging out in.

All in all, I had a great time, and I recommend the Chalet Killington.
I'd stay there again!

Stayed a few times and eventually stopped due to its run down condition.The place needs to be completely renovated or inform unsuspecting guests the poor conditions that exist. They transformed the cosy apres ski bar into the tackiest mexican restaurant you can find with overpriced disgusting food.

I have stayed at the Chalet killington several times and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time. My last stay was 2 weeks ago. The desk help was amazing, Vanessa and John were so much help. The Mexican food was wonderful. I have never had any problems and will continue to go there. The are not fancy, but very comfy. If you are a spoiled, wealthy person, I am sure the Grand would be more than happy to take you there- You will get pampered. At the Chalet they treat everyone the same..
Which adds to there charm. Thank you Vanessa and John

We were booked here for 3 nights Dec.30,31and Jan1.We took 6 hours to drive from NY with 3 kids. This beautiful Vermont New Years Eve vacation turned out to be so bad, we left on New Years Eve day after one night and drove all the way back home. The room and the whole hotel smelled of {cheep}Mexican Food and must. The beds were hard and low to the ground with hard hospital type sheets{including the black writing} the pillows were one inch thick. The bathroom was small and so old it was patched together with missed match tiles. I was never so glad to go home. so save your money and go some where else.
