The Mountain Inn at Killington2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The Mountain is comfortable and conveniently located for Killington skiing. The decor is rustic but clean and well kept. The rooms are comfortable. The inn is a mile or 2 from various eateries and night spots. It is served by "The Bus" which means you can park your car and get to all and back. You may have to wait too long for "The Bus" to arrive. Rooms with a fireplace are warm but on windy nights you may be kept awake by the clanging flu cover. The outdoor heated pool and hot tub are not always on and you have to brave the cold to go from inside to outside and back. There is a good restaurant and bar on the premises and weekend entertainment. I go to the Mountain Inn almost exclusively.
Decided to head to Killington on a last minute powder run. Hotel space was limited due to the snow so I chose the Mountain inn, with some concern based on the reviews here. I needn't have worried. There're good points and bad points about the inn, but if you're looking for a comfortable place to sleep and a good location, this is a solid choice. Good points: Very clean, beds comfortable, rooms tastefully decorated, outdoor pool warm and uncrowded . The inn also has a lot of character not available at other more expensive locations - decor in the common areas was a mix of Vermont skiing and southwestern motifs. The service was also excellent. Although full when we stayed, the inn & bar never seemed busy... there was live entertainment each nite... overall a little funky but in a good way. Areas for improvement: breakfast was very basic, although not bad. In the room, the sink was on the opposite side of the room from the bathroom which was a little strange, but serviceable. Also, as others mentioned, the room was hot... the control for the heat in the room didn't appear to do anything. We cracked the window slightly and were able to get the temp down. If you're expecting a generic corporate hotel, you will be disappointed. If you don't mind a few minor flaws, this is a great choice in Killington.
Booked this hotel last minute before the weekend of my trip as I wanted something close to Killington. It was pretty easy to find on the drive in, and there was easy parking right outside the hotel. The check-in gentlemen was very friendly that really brought up our spirits after a long drive up to Vermont. He showed up the map of the area and told us about the free shuttles out back to get us to the slopes. So the next thing is it's very convenient on the weekend with bus route #2 every 15 minutes (it's supposedly every 30 minutes on weekdays), so we didn't need to be move our cars or hunt for parking in the resort lot. Unfortunately the rooms were really average—the bed was very uncomfortable, there were only fleece blanket, a thin sheet, so no duvets; the pillows were very thin, there were less than basic amenities—I'm talking about the smallest "slice" of soap in the world, towels that looked like they were for babies (yet not very soft). Overall for the price they charge it's a very basic hotel I'd say is not any better than your average motel room. The only going point is the great staff at the front desk and the convenient location. Honestly I were to choose I'd probably not go back.
Our room was very dated and small. It was clean. No enough closet space for a ski resort location with all our clothes and equipment. The hallways had an overwhelming scent of vanilla. Too much. The game room was dirty. The pool table room was in poor condition and the pool sticks had no tips. Breakfast was average at best. On the positive side the bartenders Jenn and Bob were very friendly and informative.They gave us great ideas of shopping places and restaurants in town. The free shuttle to the mountain was convenient and timely.
two night stay paid in full they held $400 against my cc. The place smells, is not kept up..rooms are small not as advertised, bed is not comfortable, extremely disappointed for a complex at killington mountain..stay away,,there are much nicer properties on the mountain...seems like the owners even know how to do basic housekeeping
The proximity to Snowshed Lodge at Killington was excellent via the complimentary shuttle bus. The entire inn was overpowered by the smell of vanilla freshener. It seemed as though they were using it to camouflage an odor. The bed was uncomfortable. The complimentary breakfast was substandard. Bob, the bartender/musician was pleasant. The staff are not accustomed to American culture, thus it made us uncomfortable at times, although they tried very hard to make sure we were well taken care of.
We ended up in this hotel through Hotwire but at the end we were happy. The location of the hotel is awesome, especially when fall foliage is at its peak. We were welcomed very nicely at the reception, and I got to admit that it was the friendliest welcome I have ever received at a hotel. They upgraded us to a top floor room with a balcony that faced the beautiful mountain. The room had nothing to complain about. The hotel in general has that oldish feeling, with many antiques hanging in hallways. Even the pool table is all roughed up and seemed very old. You need to climb up and down on stairs. But if you want the feel of staying in a "mountain inn" this is the place for you. There is a steakhouse and a bar within the hotel premises. I don't believe the restaurant is owned by the hotel and hence there is no room delivery. There are some more restaurants nearby hotel but I would suggest that you plan your eats before ending up there. The phone networks may not work to their fullest in the vicinity so don't leave things at the last moment. The place is majorly popular during the skiing season. The bartender told me there is not much action the rest of the year (except during fall foliage season). So, plan properly.
Great welcome, nice room, wonderful view, and a window that opened which meant no need for A/C, comfortable bed, pillows a bit lumpy, My reason for the rating is because the breakfast was not so good, very little choice, and alas the coffee was not as good as supplied in the room. Otherwise it was a fine night stop hotel, and when we left we had a fond farewell .
If you are traveling and looking for a reasonably priced room then this is OK, but hardly memorable. Reasonably clean with a comfortable bed. A rather poor small buffet breakfast with paper plates and plastic cutlery. We enjoyed the bar, however, and were well entertained by Bob and his guitar.
My husband and I are traveling around the northeast for a week. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean with a fireplace that was romantic. No elevator but very accessible. Great place to stay when doing activities near Killington resort. Great location to mountain bike/ ski lifts.
