We stayed in this motel for 2 nights for a ski trip. Location is great - close to Killington and Pico. We were first given an old, not-renovated room at the back - it's awful, disgusting, dark, cold and smell. First, owner acted "surprised" that we didn't like the room and the fact that there was no heat in the... More

We stayed here for a ski weekend. After reading all the great reviews I was excited to stay here. Unfortunately we did not receive one of the renovated "lodge" rooms that we requested and ended up in the motel rooms. I am sure that the lodge rooms are nice and clean, the motel rooms are disgusting! Dirty, old, smells, and... More

Well...what do you say to a bad review? First, the guest only stayed one night and not the weekend. She booked a queen room for four people and one bed. I furnished an additional bed in the room at our expense and not her request. Also, she was entitled to four hot breakfasts in the morning. Great value! Some of... More

Had a great stay, close enough to everything, but just far away enough to offer savings for the value. Nice to see an owner that really enjoys what he does. Will always check here first when returning to killington/Pico.

Our family of five stayed at the Edelweiss Motel for 7 nights and spent most of our days skiing Killington and Pico. This place is an excellent value: comfortable, friendly, and extremely well located for skiing. But it's no-frills and it's not perfect, and it's probably not for everyone. Pros: 1. Location - You can see Pico's ski runs from... More

I recently attended a wedding in the Killington area with my extended family and many of us stayed here for the weekend. We had our own rooms but were able to meet up in the lobby area/living room where we could relax, socialize and basically, catch up with each other. It had a large, comfy sofa facing a huge fireplace... More

I came here a few months ago with my mom and brothers, because we always loved the mountains and we wanted to check the area out for when we go snowboarding in the winter. The lodge was family friendly. I heard from the maneger, Dave, that he recently bought the hotel from its previous owners, and they didn't take care... More

My husband and I decided to leave the 110 degree weather in Arizona and visit Vermont, where we had never been before. We saw this motel online and spoke to the manager, Dave, a few times. I found him to be extremely helpful and accommodating and we decided to stay there. The place was simply "great" and very reasonably priced.... More

We booked this hotel having been in a Killington ski house for part of the season. The latest reviews on here seemed very promising so we had no qualms making the booking. The hotel does still appear a little dated, even though the new owners are trying to improve things. Our room (3) was huge with a massive bed and... More

We stayed there 2 nights. The room was okay, it looked like 70's style but the cleanliness of the room was irreprochable, there was a strange humidity odor tough, I suggest to bring a scented oil plug-in or something similar if you have a sensible nose. The manager was very friendly and helpful. Therefore the breakfast was unsufficient, there was... More
