Comfortable beds, smells okay, everyone's quiet by 9 PM, breakfast in the AM, then right across the street to the mountain. My 2 kids and I had a great 2 nights here, part of an amazing weekend at Sugarbush. We'd definitely come back.

I stay here on weekends every winter to ski at Sugarbush and Mt. Ellen with my boyfriend and my dog. Three reasons we come back are the location, the value and Ruth Anne. Ruth Anne is the innkeeper at the Golden Lion and always takes care of us. She is more than accommodating of our needs, and makes a delicious... More

I've stayed there every January for the past 6 or 7 years. In the past it was quite nice and enjoyable but the woman running it is extremely miserable and downright mean. Plus you may experience frozen water lines during winter months and nonfunctioning toilets ,which leaves you with sewage backing up into your toilets from other rooms. We just... More

Dear Outdoorzguy570, Thanks for your review of the Golden Lion Inn from your recent stay. I am sincerely sorry that your stay was not 100% to your liking. Clearly I was not as hospitable to you as I have been in the past to other guests, who have written excellent reviews of my service on this very website. I cannot... More

If you want an affordable place to stay with great service this is it! Across from the access road, outdoor hot tub, delicious simple homemade breakfast at a great cost, then stay here. Rooms are comfortable for unwinding after a great day of skiing. Ruth Anne defines hospitality. We will be back and we will recommend!

My boyfriend and I stayed here along with two dogs for the weekend of the Mad Marathon race. I was running the half marathon and it was the perfect distance away from the race. Far enough to enjoy some peace and quiet the days before. It was really nice to be able to bring our pups along to enjoy some... More

Don't go and expect the Ritz and you wont be dissapointed. The property looks dated, both outside and inside. The rooms were clean, and large, but looked straight out of the 1980's. Old style tv, but with good satellite programing. There is a small hottub on a deck and hotel is right on the river and directly across from sugarbrush... More

The Golden Lion is a great value. Room was clean and neat. Breakfast was excellent. Location is convenient to everything. Half way between Warren and Waitsfield and minutes from the mountain. Staff was friendly, courteous and very accomodating. This is one of our favorite places to stay and be sure will will be back.

We stayed 2 nights during a holiday weekend in the fall foliage season and were therefore completely overcharged for the room. The room was old, worn and very damp. Not comfortable at all. The bathroom was rusty and old. The entire place needs a complete renovation. We came back as late as possible, so we only stayed in the room... More
