“Great place for what you need”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

This place was perfect for what we needed, a nice, warm clean place to rest our heads after skiing and reasonably priced. It was not a long drive to the mountain and though it was a bit dated we had a mini fridge, stove and kitchen utensils and plenty of room.

We had a nice large room with a gas fireplace that really helped get that chill off your bones after skiing. (Superior Efficiency with fireplace) The little efficiency area was just that, very little and not that many cooking tools. (OK for a couple If you plan on just making breakfast or a light meal, but not for a family. A family should inquire about there rooms with a larger kitchen area.) Table was too small to eat at but the fireplace platform offered a cozy eating setting! Clean & very nice towels & linens. The hot tub was relaxing, but a little walk or short drive that deterred another visit in the cold.
The staff was incredibly wonderful and friendly giving us an overall great experience and we would stay there again!

Room Tip: We stayed in Snowdrift but if you plan on using the hot tub, ask about the motel. Families who plan...

Thank you for great review and for your wonderful comments about our staff . I appreciate both what you liked and how we could improve as both are very helpful. Our efficiency rooms are compactly equipped with plates, cups, glasses, utensils, cooking pots, fry pans, etc. but we do have roomier kitchenette units available such as suites for families that include an oven as well. The hot tub is located next to the office, which isn't always next to the room a person may rent. Guests can drive over and change in the office restroom if they wish though and I will remind the office staff to let guests know that. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. I'm glad you had a nice stay and appreciate the positive feedback

My sister, brother in law, husband & I wanted to get away for a wknd.
I chose this Motel because the staff was friendly & accommodating (wonderful people in person as well as over the phone). Answered all of my questions & suggested that we stay in the Deluxe Fireplace Suite since we were 2 couples. We had 2 nice bedrooms, 2 bath, living room w fireplace & full kitchen. Did not need to request anything extra, everything was there. Would definitely stay there again & have recommended it to friends & family. Perfect location to everything yet quiet & peaceful. Breakfast was also very good & we were able to bring it to the suite to have a peaceful brkfst out on the deck.

Room Tip: Get to brkfst early since it can get pretty busy in high season. Bring brkfst back to rm to avoid t...

First and foremost, about the free WIFi service on the property: the word for it is "Frustrating". When it's actually working it's incredibly slow. But most of the time it is using three different servers trying to find a solid connection, and when it finally does, the previous server that you were using will disconnect you.

If a reliable WIFI service is a necessity while staying in Stowe, You won't find it here.

However, they are a great all in one location for accommodations of all types of parties. Be it family or friends, groups large and small, they should be able to accommodate you all at a pretty fair price.

Someone else in a previous review mentioned a less than Ideal continental breakfast. I would have to agree with that same assessment. All the items of food are situated on a single wall in a fairly small room to begin with, limiting 1 or 2 people at a time helping themselves, so this requires patience.

About the "Value Rooms". These are the cheapest accommodations on the property which come with a few sacrifices;

1) No microwave oven in the room.

2) A mini (table top) fridge and a plug in coffee maker are your only kitchen appliances.

3) The location of these rooms directly above the game room section of this hotel (Which also doubles as a ski tuning room during the winter months). Not exactly peaceful.

It should be noted that all of the "Efficiency Room" accommodations come with a kitchenette.

About the flat screen TV's around the property. With a diagonal screen size of approximately 24 inches, these screens are actually too small to be enjoyed across a room some 10 feet away. And while they do broadcast some channels in HD, others are standard cable channels resulting in less than stellar picture quality.

There is one final matter that could be of importance. If your vacation situation requires you to come and go during the overnight hours. Have a flashlight handy as there are no exterior lights on during those hours.

The regular vacationer's who are loyal to the Stowe Motel & Snowdrift won't be dissuaded by this review. That said, things could still be a little bit better to broaden the appeal to first time visitor's to this family owned and otherwise wonderful establishment.

Thank you for your detailed feedback. I appreciate both what you liked and how we could improve as both are very helpful.

We have recently put 32' flat screen tvs and dvd players in all of our rooms. Like most properties in town, we have cable tv which has some HD but also regular stations. In our value and superior rooms, they don't have microwaves but if you ask the front desk, they can have housekeeping bring one over, for no charge. As you mentioned, there is a ski tuning room and game room under some of our units, but we do lock it up at 9 PM.

We are continually looking at ways to increase our bandwidth for wi-fi and also ways to improve our continental breakfast. Guest feedback is most valuable when determining the direction of capital improvements so we really do appreciate your input.. Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor.

My husband and I spent 5 nights in one of the deluxe fireplace suites. It was wonderful! The facilities are very clean and located near lots of great shops and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast that is provided is a great way to start the day. Our room was an efficiency with all kinds of utensils provided. The hotel provides free bicycle use, a game room, and a library containing books and movies that you can borrow during your stay. We had such a wonderful time at the Stowe Motel & Snowdrift. This establishment is highly recommended. I look forward to staying here again.

To begin on a positive note, the breakfast offerings were varied and plentiful. The serving area for breakfast is inadequate: there is a (maybe) 10-12 ft. counter and all food offerings and small appliances along with plates, napkins, etc. are compressed into this area and an under-counter refrigerator below the counter. This motel accommodates a LARGE number of guests and needs to expand the breakfast area - - - both serving and seating. The room was adequate. It is time however to replace the mattresses. The toilet tissue is so thin it might be considered invisible. The room rates would suggest a higher over-all quality than actually exists. The location is desirable - - close to Stowe w/o being in the middle of downtown.
