“Great Place with a great Price!”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Last minute plans to spend three days at the Junior National's Nordic competition in Stowe made it possible for us to stay at this cozy, clean & comfortable motel! The rooms are spotless, the beds very comfortable, and the caretakers extremely helpful and attentive. When my sister and husband saw our room they were sorry they had not stayed there. Real coffee cups & glasses instead of plastic, paper, or Styrofoam along with a full-sized coffee pot were just a few of the extra touches this motel provides. Other hidden treasures they told us about that were not listed on the town map they provided us, was a wonderful natural food store called Harvest Market. We did have a 32 inch flat screen TV, which we never used. They told us about McCarthy's for breakfast that we enjoyed twice & that has a great Gluten Free selection. This prompt and well attended restaurant does only take checks and cash. Just don't tell everyone about the Snowdrift Motel! What a wonderful vacation, I cannot thank them enough. There are other buildings and road entrances to this property, the office building is separate from the motel, which was confusing initially; but we quickly learned where our particular motel building was. We stayed on the second floor room 235.

Room Tip: Full sun through the large bedroom window. The second floor was quiet. We didn't need a fitness...

This is a really friendly, clean, down to earth place not many frills but for us it was just perfect.
Please don't all rush there, they will raise their very reasonable prices!!

There is a choice of restaurants in walking distance.

And a walking path right back into town.... great for a jog.

Room Tip: All rooms are good that we have tried.

Stayed at the Stowe M and Snowdrift
Wow were we pleasantly surprised. I've stayed at local ski "hotel/motels" in the past. Most are nice, ok, well dated. This place was great. Okay still a bit dated but I don't rent a hotel in Ski country to be pampered. I sleep, I shower, I ski... I don't spend much time in my room. All It needs is a few things, hot n good shower, comfortable bed, clean and good value. Stowe Motel and Snowdrift delivered on all accounts. Plus breakfast (continental) included no shortage of things to choose from. cereal hot and cold, good coffee and nice tea/juice selection. Bagels, donuts, muffins and even Monkey bread one morning. This place for the money beats out 75% of the places I've stayed at in the past.

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay in Stowe after a long day of skiing this is the place to be. Yes it is not the lodge at the base of the mountain or other high end places at Stowe, but that the point. Stayed in an efficiency room (without the fireplace, would recommend getting the room with it). Check in was smooth and easy to get to my room. Small, comfortable, clean, and safe that's all you need. Yes it does need a bit updating for you city folk but always had hot water, television, and internet. Restuarants in town are nice so you wont go hungry and there are good local convenience stores close by that has everything you will need. Mini fridge was nice and I did not expect a mini bar.

Room Tip: Get a room with a fireplace.

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
