“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

I gave my husband a very hard time for booking this hotel when our usual place was fully booked. The photos on line and the reviews were not favorable but he wanted to ski a few weekends ago so he booked it without consulting the "queen." Turns out the place is way better than the photos or reviews claim. We enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable, clean, a slight bit dated but clean is the most important thing. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was fine...no one went hungry. Our boys enjoyed building a fort in a snow bank after skiing. The place was quiet and in a good location. The only thing missing was a hot tub/pool. I would stay at this hotel again and I apologized to my husband for the grief I gave him. I don't like to do that too often. One piece of advice for the staff is to sweep the stairs after snowfall.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor in a regular room. I don't know what the other rooms are like sinc...

We booked this hotel as an after theatre stop on the way home. The 1st room offered was on the highway and noisy, and each of the subsequent rooms were unacceptable. The next room was not even made up, and the last room was both dirty, smoky and generally unclean. Very disappointing for a Best Western property! Decided to drive on back roads after 11:30 at night and was happy with Hampton Inn in Rutland.

Room Tip: If you chance this, get there early and scope out quiet location, cleanliness & have back-up pla...

We stayed here recently as it was the only option we could find online that had rooms available for the weekend after new years. Okemo was completely booked so we took a gamble on this property. We booked the "two bedroom" suite with a kitchenette. What we learned is that our definition of a two bedroom suite is quite different from their definition. What you get is two rooms crammed with beds. The front room had a queen bed and the back room had a double bed with a twin bed. No closet not dresser just two beds and a peg board to hang things.
The front room had the bathroom a closet for hobbits and the "kitchenette". The second thing we learned is that they have a VERY liberal definition of "kitchenette". Their definition is that there is a tiny sink and the smallest microwave I have ever seen. There are no dishes or silverware but there is a refrigerator. The kitchen table is a fold up table with fold up chairs tucked inside of it. It's actually quite ingenious but not functional. If you are going skiing you will NOT have enough room for luggage. The bathroom is miniscule at best but you can use the comode while brushing your teeth as the sink and the toilet are that close together.

As for the room(s), they are extremely outdated and are in desperate need of a remodel. I would say that the hotel is close to being a tear down in my opinion. With that said, you don't have many options in town that you can easily book online. It suited our needs for the most part. We never turned the heat on but it was easily 75 degrees in our room. The motel is within walking distance to town restaurants but if you want to eat at most places you need to make a reservation (if they take them) or be prepared to wait for a table in season.
I don't recommend this motel but it works when there are no other options. It is pricey for what it is. The staff is pleasant enough even though I don't have any idea how the housekeeping staff manage to keep up with the rooms. I only saw two of them and they were both of advanced age. I didn't eat breakfast at the hotel so I can't comment on that.

In all this property was not my cup of tea.

This hotel is below average. The rooms are small, and you do not get value for your money. At least it is relatively clean and covenant to the slopes, and the breakfast is very adequate. It is really just a spot to sleep before you ski, there is very little pleasure staying here.

The hotel is very comfortable and the owner takes great care to make your stay a very pleasant one. Breakfast included makes it efficient in the mornings before skiing. You can walk to several restaurants from the hotel even if you get heavy snow. We did!
