The inn keeper is extremely rude, doesn't know anything about hospitality and the place is a complete dump. I rented the apt with add on room. I spoke to the inn keeper on the way up to let them know I would be arriving after 10pm when their office closes. He said he would leave keys and told me multiple... More

The best I can say about the Golden Lion is that the location is convenient to Sugarbush and MRG. Other than that I recommend staying somewhere else. Our family of four stayed in one of the efficiency units in the back overlooking the gas tank and the drain (not sure what was draining in there but it did not smell... More

We are here for 3 nights in the Brookside Apartment and it is great. The apartment is very spacious. It is clean and has recently been painted. You can easily sleep 6 to 7 people here. The kitchen is fully stocked with the cooking and eating accessories needed along with a microwave and coffee pot. It is very roomy especially... More

I feel kind of sad about leaving a negative review because the inn keeper was a pretty decent guy. The thing is, the place is kind of gross. We booked it on a whim, last minute over a holiday week and it was truly the last available room in the area. We were grateful to have it, but were even... More

Stayed here for 2 night's. Very basic room. Needs updating. Mattress was old and creaky. Room is run down but was clean. Ran out of toilet paper and none to be found anywhere. Shower was good. Hot tub was nice and a highlight. If you're looking for a place to sleep and nothing else then this is a good place.

We stayed here for one night, and while the room was sufficient, I'm glad it was only a one night stay. The room is very basic, with a few issues - ours smelled of smoke when we arrived so we needed to air it out, and for some reason the bathroom mirror was missing. Cross your fingers that there are...

We stayed here for one night. It's location at the foot of the Sugarbush Access Road makes it ideal for skiers during the winter and the Mad River Trail behind the inn makes it great for nature lovers during the summer. Our room was basic, but the excellent shower strength was a real plus. Breakfast was adequate but not ample... More

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
