Disappointing

Although I can see some great potential, our visit was disappointing. The room was clean and comfortable but had absolutely NO amenities such as:coffee maker, small fridge, mirror in room, cushion in window seat - nada!. The lounge and restaurant were closed the entire 4th of July week and weekend (no one knew if/when it would open) with the exception of breakfast which consisted of yogurt, fruit, coffee, granola, juices and bagels. Even that closed up by 10:00!! Since the "village" restaurants were also closed more than they were open, we were stranded if we hadn't rented a car to drive into local towns. Moral of the story, don't advertise yourself as a summer locale if you aren't going to accomodate your customers with any type of hospitality, using the excuse "this isn't season for us". Then stay closed when it isn't "season" for you.

Quick overnight

Pros: Good location, walking distance to main village though it's uphill. Hot tub and sauna which is open until 11PM. VERY comfortable bed, Westin quality. Free Wifi. Shuttle service to village. Cons: Lobby was smoky. Room key didn't work on back door, so had to walk all the way around. No elevator. No room service or delivery option. Creaky floors. Maid was pounding on doors at 745AM.. her "ROOM SERVICE!" me "Go Away!". Parking very tight. Overall not bad but at $180/night a bit overpriced.

Cozy and close to the mountain

This hotel is not a luxury hotel, but has everything you could need for your ski vaca. The rooms are a little small, and I was disappointed that there was no pull-out couch. (Apparently there are no pull-out couches in any of the rooms). Also, the bed was a double. What's up with that? No one sleeps in a double any more. The booking site told me I'd be getting a queen and a pull-out sofa. So, just check before you go to see what type of room you're getting. Overall though, it was clean, cozy, and very close to the mountain.

For the one night that we stayed it was pretty good. The comfort of the bed and pillows were just amazing. Wish we could of stayed longer but had a spartan race the following day.

Inn at Stratton is very dated but low priced and adequate

The Inn at Stratton is very dated and dirty. It is an old ski lodge that has never been updated BUT it is in a great location and very cheaply priced. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean but very old and frayed. If you just need an overnight room for little money in a great location, this can work. The alternative is to spend $$$ on the newer condos and rentals at Stratton. I wil say the dining room/bar is quite nice and very comfortable. We watched the Olympics in there as a family and had a great time!

Check out the lounge/restaurant and grab a drink and hit the leather sofas and chairs. They are very comfortable and great for family or friendly conversation.

Amazingly Comfortable

Most amazing room i've ever stayed in during my entire life of traveling around the world, I'd kill for one of the beds they have there, we literally could not get out of bed in the morning and had to force ourselves to get up and out at noon both days we were there!

Location is good but room need renewal.

The room was worn and tired althoughh the location was very good for Stratton mountain. The staff were friendly on arrival. Although when I rang to check about late arrival, it would have been useful (and extremely relevant!) to tell me that the mountain road was blocked. Meant I had an extra hour to drive.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

It's worth taking the $15 gondela lift up Stratton Mountain for some gentle hikes. The short walk (1M) over to the fire tower is pleasant and happens to be the site that the Appalachian Trail was first envisoned. Amazing views from the fire tower.

Awful

I paid $130 per night. If renovated, it would compare with a Days Inn. Needs paint real bad; hall carpets are filthy; room had strong odor; view from basement room window was of an SUV grille; the floor above squeaked all night; no elevators with long stair cases; steep uphill walk to slopes and shopping area. Nice people work there though. Hey, if you like hiking/camping this may be for you.
