“Excellent value motel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Nice hotel in Stowe, and probably the best value in the area. The rooms are very generic, but clean. I was in a room with a full kitchenette, and it was quite sizeable. There is free Wi-Fi, and bicycles for the bike trail a block away. Overall it is a good place to stay, in this "resort" area.

Office staff very nice. Room was clean and had a beautiful view. Sitting on porch late at night with stream nearby was very relaxing. Only thing that that I was upset with was housekeeping did not leave any coffee during my stay.

We came to VT to see the fall foliage and Stowe has it all. We couldn't have found a better place for the $$$ to stay than the Stowe Motel & Snowdrift. Great value for the money......a clean comfy room, all very friendly workers from the front desk to the maids to the nice hard working woman in the breakfast room. The free breakfast was the best. It was over-the-top continental fully stocked with about 8 tables. We always got a table even with a couple of sold out days! The free bikes were excellent. I liked the location because it was a couple of miles from the busy part of town. They have free WiFi and a computer to use at the front desk. It's not luxurious, if you want that stay at the Trapp or the Stowe MT lodge and pay the big bucks. I would stay again!

Room Tip: Building #200 was the basic with 2 queens a fridge, free wifi, best price. We were very happy with...

Although there are high remarks for this property, it is a simple motel with no amenities. I use tripadvisor to plan my trips and this location was an awful one. The unit we stayed in was very worn/dated, smelled of must/mildew, and had extremely limited services; I.e meal service with quality options.

If you are here to ski, it is cost effective to stay here, if you are planning to vacation at a resort with awesome amenities visit Stowe Lodge, TopNotch or Trapp Lodge, they at least over-deliver on their advertised options and are quality resorts!

We having been coming to Stowe in the winter for years. This was our first trip during the Summer months and our first trip to the Stowe Motel. I chose to come here based on the TA reviews. I agree with the prior good reviews that this place is great value in what tends to be an expensive town to stay. We have stayed in other, more expensive, motels that were nowhere near as nice. Our room (112 - in the Snowdrift part) was spacious, clean and comfortable and it was quiet and peaceful. We stayed for the Labor Day weekend and the motel was full during this time. We enjoyed the ample continental breakfast. The breakfast room is too small, but we were advised of this at check in and it was suggested we bring the breakfast back to our room to enjoy in more peace, which we gratefully did. The location is perfect, being right next to the rec. trail and within easy walking distance of some great restaurants. We will definitey return.

Thank you for taking the time to rate us on Trip Advisor. I'm glad you found our unit spacious, clean and comfortable, and also that you were able to enjoy our continental breakfast. We realize it is a little tight in there on busy weekends, and appreciate that brought it back to your room. We hope you can visit us again, and partake of some of our other amenities such as free bikes, heated outdoor pool, tennis, hot tub and more!

This Motel was very clean, and had a nice complimentary breakfast. They have bikes you can use for free. They have refrigerators in the room and lots of Weber Grills you can use. And it's in a very central location. We would definitely stay there again.

Thank you for your great comments about our property. I'm glad you enjoyed our breakfast. All of our units do have a little fridge, which is handy. The outside grills guests can use as well. I hope you had a chance to go for a walk or ride one of our bikes on the nearby recreation path. Thank you again for reviewing the Stowe Motel & Snowdrift. I hope you can visit us again!

Selected Stowe Motel based on reviews. Was actually nicer than pictured. The free breakfast had great NY style bagels but needed to be restocked continually for coffee and service was lacking. Our glasses in our room that we used for wine the night before were not replaced and left dirty! Other than that, we liked the location and free use of mountain bikes. We will stay here again.
