We booked our mid-week trip (Tuesday-Friday, Jan 21-24, 2014) very last minute (Monday Jan 20 night to be exact) through Hotels.com via Kayak.com. I chose the North Star Lodge because of the great mid-week rates, availability, location, having driven past it on other trips to Killington and because of the advertised heated pool. Mid-week is really the way to go because hotels and lift tickets are so much cheaper and there are hardly any crowds! My fiance and I drove the 5 hrs from Long Island early Tuesday morning and hit the slopes for first tracks at 9 a.m.! Afterwards, we checked-in early (at 2 p.m.) and the room was ready! We found the receptionist to be pleasant and welcoming with a big smile on her face. Our room was on the 4th floor - we had to pass through a small bar/lounge area that did not have anyone in it at all in the 4 days/3 nights that we stayed there. I can imagine that it was used much more on the weekends and holidays. The room (King) was a bit dated, but clean enough. They should definitely replace the shower head in the bathroom along with the 11" tube TV situated on a TV stand lower than the bed! Complimentary toiletries were included and fresh towels were supplied every day. The single greatest feature at this hotel was the heated outdoor pool! Open from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the winter, nothing made my body happier than sitting in 102-degree water for an hour after a day snowboarding. We also met some other guests while floating around - great if you are travelling in a small group or as a couple! We would definitely stay at the North Star again - if you are like us and you are coming to Killington to enjoy winter sports and the mountain, then as long as your hotel is clean and WARM then you will be quite happy with the North Star!
