“A mixed bag”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

First- the good. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. The back of the property is beautiful with a huge sloping lawn that goes right down to a lovely river that can be heard at night with open windows. There is also a mini golf course on site and we had a great time playing a round. The indoor common area was welcoming and comfortable.

Here comes the bad- the room was awful. I had booked a 2 room suite 8 months before our travel. In all my experience, a suite denotes a common area with a couch at the very least. W opened our door to find the a tiny, oddly shaped room that barely fit two of us (we were traveling with 4) before opening up to two separate bedrooms. The bathroom vanity didn't have an outlet in it, the shower curtain had mildew on it, the vinyl flooring was peeling up, the head of the faucet fell off and showed all the goo inside. The description of the room never indicated it was over the lobby of the hotel and we woke to the phone ringing at 1:15 in the morning and the pillows were hard. We spoke to the front desk person and she did seem sorry for our experience but as there was no other open rooms, there wasn't much to be done. She offered us a $50 refund which we appreciated but even so, we will never return. Stowe was stunning though!

Room Tip: Bring your own pillows and don't stay over the lobby.

Great place - Was reluctant to leave- we had a lovely overlook onto the Little River- just a few feet away from our patio door. The accomodation was super - everything we needed- very clean and at a good price. If we hadn't been on a road trip we would have been happy to stay for a few days rather than the one night.

Sun & Ski Inn and Suites in Stowe more than fulfilled our expectations. It was a great experience from the moment we stepped into the reception area and were engulfed by the aroma of spiced hot cider, which was delicious and was offered free alongside fresh coffee. We had rooms on the second floor of the main building upstairs The rooms were very spacious and clean; the linens and towels clean and fresh and the beds comfy. It was very peaceful and quiet during the night. I want to mention in particular Mark at reception. He was very attentive and went above and beyond the call of duty - not only suggesting restaurants but even making the reservation for us and offering us oatmeal raisin cookies hot out of the oven while we waited for him to the call. Thanks to him, my husband and I enjoyed an absolutely perfect meal at Harrison's Restaurant - the best we've had in some tiime .

Room Tip: Room 26 and 27 are separate rooms with their own door, with opens into a entree with a large bathroo...

The motel was full but still fairly quiet when we were here. It’s a nice place, aging, but still well maintained with manicured grounds, a pool, hot tub, and standard room amenities. The rooms all had patios doors that looked out across the lawn to the river. They had fresh coffee, cider and cookies available when we arrived. We enjoyed the indoor pool. They also had a continental breakfast comprised of a lot of carbs: cereals, breads and french toast sticks. Nothing exciting, but it was nice that it was included. The rate was very reasonable.

While unprepossessing as you enter, all the "action" is behind the motel - a huge green and inviting lawn down to the lovely river. The room looked right out on this area, and had a sweet little deck and chairs (too wet and cold for our trip, but really appealing). The room was generous and well-kept, had a mini-fridge (which I always appreciate) and everything was delightful. Small pool, which we did not try - appeared clean. The miniature golf course adjacent was very unusual - an actual miniature golf course, which we walked after dinner! We had other guests on both sides, and never heard a thing! The two desk managers we dealt with were wonderful, and the included breakfast was more than average. I liked the location, the grounds, the comfy room and the people. Well-priced, as well.

Pleasantly surprised with the quality and location. Run by a lovely couple who relocated from the Netherlands. Good breakfast, lots of space for the kids to run, including a mini golf course and access to the river. The room had a great deck. The pool was a little cold.

I stayed at both the hotel and the suites. The pool was a lot of fun. This is a basic kind of resort - but the breakfast was really good and the customer service was amazing. If you are expecting luxury, look elsewhere but for a good quality homey place, comfortable bed, and great pool, I highly recommend this place.
