When we first got there, we were very excited with how beautiful the Stratton Resort was as a whole. Great downtown area that they created with a very cool bar (Bar 802), little shops, and different restaurants. We checked in and the woman Megan at the front desk was more than helpful, friendly, and accommodating to us. She went over... More

Dated yet clean, this hotel is in need of some paint and some TLC. But the rooms were fine, beds comfortable and the staff was very nice. Breakfast wasn't the sprawling buffet I was led to believe on check in but it was a small assortment of bagels, danish and yogurt. All in all, if you can get a good... More

Was doing a Tough Mudder in Vermont and needed a reasonably priced, not too far from Mount Snow place to stay. Black Bear was a good value for our needs, we stayed two nights over the course of a weekend. The place is large, though we didn't get to see all of it. The lobby has ample seating, like couches...

Attended a conference here. It did not bother me but a colleague with a large suitcase noted that the lack of elevators was an issue for her. Rooms on the lowest floor below the front desk feel like they are in a walk out basement and therefore do not afford much natural light. Windows are small and up high. Fitness... More

Stayed at the black bear lodge for the wanderlust festival. Our run was adequate for our stay. We stayed in building number 3. It is no 5 star hotel, but the room was clean and good enough for the limited time that we were in the room. I think the quality of room depends on what building you stay in.... More

Myself and two of my friends stayed at the Black Bear Lodge during the final weekend of the 2014-15 Stratton ski season. Megan at the front desk helped make this a great experience. She was very flexible with our group and super welcoming after a really tough drive. The hotel is a great value for being right outside / walking... More

This hotel is well located at the stratton mountain resort, my is that it needs a renovation in some areas like lobby, breakfasr area and ailes. The room is well sized but it doesn't have good acoustic, you can hear every noise outside. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is included but poor. Wi fi works well in the... More

This use to be formally known as the Inn at Stratton. This place has the foundation to be so much more than it is. It's just needs a little more TLC and the right management and it really would be a solid ski stay. I appreciate that they have renovated the rooms however rather than just paint and put new...

A very cozy lodging situation. Very large rooms and very close to the mountain. Stayed here for New Years and had a fantastic vacation with the family. Any of the hotels are perfect in this area to be honest! The beds are comfy and the living room area allowed us all to be together by the fire with hot chocolate... More

This is the fourth year at the Black Bear Lodge for our group. That is both good and bad news. The good news is that there is now a large convenient shuttle for trips to restaurants and slopes. Also the large hot tub was not working last year and it has been repaired. The bad news is that our favorite... More
