Stowe Motel & Snowdrift
Ranked #8 of 24 Hotels in Stowe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Stowe can be a very pricey area, Stowe Motel offers a reasonable rate for a comfortable room with many amenities. The room we booked had a fridge, microwave, stove top, sink, pots, pans, utensils, pillows, with extra ones in case, plus additional blankets, more towels than we could ever ask for, free bike rentals, great location, small DVD library to rent movies from (many titles were new and popular!), hot tubs, continental breakfast and a gas fireplace in the room. There were other places that looked more modern, however my husband and I were very happy and comfortable. My only two complaints are that we were in the corner room on the second floor by the staircase, and we heard EVERYTHING. The walls were very thin, so anytime the guy below us or next to us turned on the fan in their bathrooms, or if someone walked up the steps, we heard it. The steps are very very loud, I would recommend management find a way to stifle the sound of people going up and down the steps, maybe replace the carpeting they have on the steps or pour concrete into the steps. Additionally, if anyone around us was showering at the same time, we had to compete for the hot water. I could literally tell when the guy below me turned his water hotter because mine got colder and vice versa, that was a bit frustrating. Otherwise, very nice, if you are on a budget, this place will give you the value for your dollar so you can enjoy yourself.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on our property. Your detailed feedback is very helpful and we appreciate the items that need improvement as well as the things we are doing right. I apologize for hot water fluctuation and will have our maintenance person look into what may have caused that. Soundproofing and guest noise levels are certainly one of the toughest problems all lodging properties face and although we don't have many noise comments, unfortunately noisy neighbors do happen from time to time. As we renovate rooms, we also will look into soundproofing options and possibly offer ear plugs for light sleepers like other properties sometimes do. I'm glad you had a chance to enjoy some our amenities such as our new dvd library and hope you can visit us again.

We initially chose the Stowe Motel & Snowdrift because it is a pet friendly motel. Our Pomeranian travels everywhere with us. We were pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the room. There is free wifi. The grounds are amazing with flowers, chairs outside each room, hammocks, ladder ball, badminton, two swimming pools, a hot tub and free bicycle rentals. There is also a game room and continental breakfast. Oh and of course fresh coffee in the lobby at all times. They also offer free dvd rentals. The location is central to Stowe Village and Mount Mansfield. We visited Stowe in April 2013 and loved it so much that we returned in October 2013 to enjoy the breathtaking fall foliage. The Stowe Motel & Snowdrift is our choice destination.

Stayed here during Octoberfest weekend. We had a 2 bedroom unit. it included a fully supplied kitchen (toaster too) and small living and dining area. even had a BBQ and deck chairs for the small patio. Could easily have stayed for a week.

Nice amenities ( bikes, hot tub, game room, breakfast room ), walking distance to the Rec Path.

Room Tip: we had a view of the green lawn area. very quiet and nice to look out the sliding glass doors. Also...

We stayed in a room with a fireplace and kitchenette . Breakfast was provided daily. The grounds were well maintained. We also enjoyed the free use of the bikes. We rode on trails and were able to see the beautiful fall foliage

Room Tip: Get a room on the second floor. You have a nice view of the mountains

This is a nice motel in the lower price range. We were in a 'value' room at the back of the site. The room was clean, and the bed comfortable. There was a fridge, table with two chairs and a bed. There was also a DVD player and a good selection of films available at reception. The bed was comfortable. There are plenty of restaurants on Mountain Road, and Stowe village is only two miles away. The staff at the motel were polite and were happy to make recommendations for somewhere to eat and visit. The breakfast room is very small. The choice of food was ok, all continental.

Stowe can be an expensive place to stay. This place is the exception. Aged motel but well maintained. Bed was good, room was clean, friendly staff at check-in, quiet location. The breakfast room is way too small. Everybody bumping into each other. All carbs & no protein. Nothing hot. Most guests were just taking food back to room. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get the larger Superior room.

Thank you for your great feedback. I’m so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with our breakfast. Although we do not offer a full breakfast we feel that we have a good variety for a continental breakfast. I appreciate your comments and will continue to look for ways to improve our breakfast. Thank you for the positive feedback about our rooms and staff – we appreciate the positive comments as well as suggestions for improvement.
