I’m giving this 3 stars because we only paid $60/night for a king room, so for the price, you can forgive a little. We stayed in late Oct. Easy to miss- they’re not allowed to put up signage down on Killington Rd, leading to their hotel. This hotel seems to cater to the ski resort crowd. The previous owners reportedly ran it into the ground and it is under new ownership as of about 3 years ago. They are trying to clean up the hotel’s image as a party place.
No elevators. Grounds seem pretty well maintained. Clean, spacious rooms… ours had small sofa, micro, frig. Sheets were, uh, so cheap or so starched as to be…crisp. Not comfy. Toilet is in a separate room with a locked door. The sink area is partially open to the room, and the shower and changing room are next to the sink area, just separated by a curtain. Room for snowboards, skiis & equipment. No way to control the temperature in your room, but we were comfortable. We learned the reason for some of these quirks was because the hotel was originally built as a dorm for a college that was expected to locate in Killington (though it never did.)
The bad: Fellow reviewers weren’t kidding about the parking! We were lucky to find a close spot in the limited parking area near our building (where office was located) only because they weren’t busy during this off-season. Other parking is way out. Owner very nice, but really didn’t seem to understand why people have a problem with this setup! He did mention plans to improve the grounds. People should keep after them about the parking and maybe he’ll take notice.
Also, the “free continental breakfast” was the most pathetic I’ve ever seen! A few pastries, bread, bagels, cereal. That’s it. No fresh fruit, nothing else! All in all, a good hotel for the price we paid, but don’t count on close parking or a decent free breakfast.
