“Great Find in Stowe”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

I just returned from a group trip to Stowe for the winter holidays and stayed at the Mountain Road resort. All in all this was the perfect place for my friends and me.

The location was absolutely perfect - just a few minutes away from both Waterbury and the Stowe resort...no matter where we wanted to go, skiing, dinner, bars, local attractions and more, we were just minutes away.

The staff at the Mountain Road Resort was just wonderful. From the moment we arrived, the team was incredibly pleasant and helpful. Whether it was getting help making last minute group dinner reservations, recommendations on New Year's activities, or simple requests, the team always went above and beyond to solve our problems.

We also loved the public areas of the resort as well - there is a newly renovated aquatic center, which has a great large indoor pool, an amazing hot tub, a pool table and even a lounge. The also newly-renovated lobby area was really nice - we loved sitting by the fireplace on the couches to relax after a long day. The resort also offers a continental breakfast with a decent variety of foods that are a great way to start off a long day on the slopes.

Our room was also perfect for our group. We stayed in one of the loft rooms - it was complete with a full kitchen, brand new LCD TV, even a hot tub. We spent many a night watching DVDs in the suite while cooking up some great family dinners. It was an incredibly comfortable and cozy way to enjoy the trip.

I would definitely stay at the Mountain Road Resort again. We had an amazing time and thank the staff for treating us so well.

Room Tip: Definitely take advantage of the great location by visiting some of the local restaurants, bars, and...

Overall, the room was clean and spacious, no complaints there. The indoor hot tub and pool were nice, although if you're in the separate building it can be a bit chilly walking over to the other building! It came down to the little things that are expected and that just weren't there. For starters, the web site advertises that "All rooms also include HBO and cable, new flat panel televisions, coffee makers, economy refrigerators, and telephones", yet our room did not have HBO, a new flat panel tv, or an economy refrigerator. We had planned to have the refrigerator in the room so that was a serious bummer. The tv was disappointing because not only was it an older version tv, but the channel changer did not work. We took it back twice and still did not get one that worked! Frustrating. The web site also stated they had "hair dryer and free high speed wireless Internet connection", but again there was no hair dryer and no free Wi-FI. The room also did not have tissues, and for two people with allergies, that can be a problem. We also did not have extra toilet paper which was a problem because when you're using it to also blow your nose, then you run out pretty quickly! The room did not have a clock. The walls are thin and the people staying next door had a dog; could hear the dog barking. If visiting Stowe again I would probably search for a different place to stay, especially considering how much it cost to stay per night here.

Our family had a great time at the Mtn. Road Resort. The indoor pool and hot tub was the kids favorite. We enjoyed the fireplace and direct access to a nice snow covered field the kids could play in. Breakfast was great! Service exceptional. We truly enjoyed our stay and will come back.

We specifically chose this hotel for the in-room fireplace. We arrived to find the fireplace not operating and were advised that they were currently being renovated and were only working in some rooms. We asked to be moved to a room with an operating fireplace and were told none were available. Why book a fireplace room 3 weeks in advance if you know that the fireplaces are not working? Very disappointed with this business. I paid an extra $40/night to stay in a fireplace room with no functional fireplace. Additionally the vending machines were out of service and the hot tub too dirty for me to consider going in. Stay away!
