How this hotel ever got a 3 star rating is a complete mystery to me. We had a special occasion to celebrate and did not plan to spend a lot of daytime in the room so we chose the "Classic" room, not the "Deluxe" one, but still... at 200$ a night, I was angry to find myself in what felt like a 2 starred highway side motel.
1) The staff seems unconcerned and bored.
2) Two out of three nights, we heard a loud ticking noise coming either from the plumbing or heating system that kept us (and our noisy upstairs neighbors) awake most of the night.
3) The front desk staff refused to lend me a bathrobe (because "those are only for our Deluxe Rooms clients") which meant I had to run down the 200 feet hotel corridor between the Jacuzzi and Pool rolled up in a worn out pool towel trying to hold up what was left of my dignity.
4) All other general concerns : plastic cups in the bathroom instead of glasses, minimal toiletries, only one soap for hands AND shower over our 3 nights stay at the Inn, stained carpet, breakfast not included, very slow Internet and so on...
On the bright side, our room was fairly clean and the restaurant was okay. The waiting staff in the dinning room was pleasant. I would have rated this hotel "Average" if it was not for the price.
In short, if you believe an "EconoLodge" type room with a pretty quilt and a great location is worth 200$ a night, go for the Inn! For me, I'll look elsewhere next time I'm in Stowe!
