One night stay in Stowe on a road trip. Inn is dated and smells musty. Room was spacious and although comfortable felt very old fashioned. Towels were rough and off white. Coffee on site but both pools closed when we stayed. Good distance to Stowe. Looked as though there were much better places to stay in the area but this was booked by an agent as part of a tour. Not sure I would have booked it myself!
We visited now because of a friend's wedding. We had a two queen room which was comfortable and clean. Special thanks to Shauna who made sure we were well supplied in our room. There is coffee and tea in the lobby along with a microwave. Our room had a refrigerator. The parking is free. It is a short walk to downtown Stowe.
walked into the lobby and you are hit with a musty smell. room was really large and not too smelly. 2 comfy beds. tub was awkward because it is contoured for a seat, so the floor of the tub was slanted which can affect someone with bad footing. the outside pool was very nice, clean and well kept. the indoor pool and hot tub were closed for repairs. there is no food on site. just coffee in lobby. vending machines were empty. we only stayed one night, so although the hotel has seen better days, it was sufficient. towels were rough. there is a small pond behind the hotel with kayaks, which we did not try.
We stayed here for 2 nights in August. On the outside this is an attractive place. It has an outdoor pool and a large pond where they offer canoes and kayaks and a pedal boat to enjoy the pond. I swam in the pool and it was lovely. The room was a good size and the bed was comfortable. They provide good amenities. The problem was a guest, I believe a long-term guest, in the next room who was allowed to smoke. The Vermont State law prohibits inside smoking in all hotels and motels. On the surface this place seems to be complying. You have to sign a statement that you will not smoke in your room. They have signs on the outside doors that if you smoke you will be charged $250 and evicted. Well in practice this is not what happens. I complained to the front desk staff member on both nights about someone smoking in their room. The first night I couldn't determine which room, but by the second night I figured out it was the room next to ours. I hate smoking and it bothers me a lot. I complained verbally and formally about this and nothing was done. I emailed the owner, no reply. We will not be going there again and you may not want to either.…
Excellent value, close to the mountain and restaurants, clean and warm. Even more Importantly the people that work there are helpful, friendly, and honest. I left an Important item in the room and they found it and mailed it back to me within 3 days. Definitely going back.
The Commodore Inn is in need of extensive repairs and updates. The place is falling apart, filthy, and clearly neglected. Peeling wallpaper, carpet stains, rusted and busted heat vents, mismatched paint cover-ups, hair in the bathtub/shower….it is all gross. Do NOT go into the pool or hot tub as they have not been cleaned or treated properly. We got into the hot tub and immediately realized it was covered in slim and the filters were completely covered and black from hair and gunk buildup. We immediately got out and showered. The BIGGEST issue, however, was how we were treated last night. Around 11:15pm we were awakened by someone ENTERING OUR ROOM. I yelled out hello?!? and they quickly shut the door and left. About 15 minutes later we were woken up yet again, but this time by a woman banging on the door screaming at us to come out and leave the room or she was calling the cops. My husband quickly got up, in a state of confusion and disbelief, only to be threatened and screamed at more to get up and out. Once dressed, he opened the door to find a small elderly hotel clerk escorted by whom we assuming was security. My husband was completely calm, but this lady was furious. He walked down to the lobby with the two as she told my husband we were not to be in the room as our stay was only for one night and again, if we didn’t leave immediately she was calling the authorities. She then clicked around on the computer to discover that we were in fact booked for 2 nights and the previous check-in clerk put us in the hand written “books” for only 1 night AND in a different room than written. Talk about WILDLY bizarre and inappropriate. Hard to fall back asleep after being woken up like that and treated so poorly. The next morning we asked for a manager to call us, but still no word from The Commodore. I want my money back from this dirty, unwelcoming place. NEVER going back and I hope no one else does either.…
Hotel is walking distance from many restaurants. It was the cheapest hotel deal that I could find that wasn't a motel and had about a 4 star rating. It is a pet friendly hotel and there were some stains on the carpet, but I generally just know hotel carpets are not that sanitary so this was something that was known as a possibility. Couldn't get the bubbles to work in the hot tub, but pool and hot tub were nice temperature, though some hair and such floating around, as expected in public pool/hot tub. The staff had told us upon check in about someone breaking into some rooms previously, which made us feel "really safe" haha, but nothing shady happened during our stay. Staff was nice, town was cute.
We won't be staying at the Commodores Inn again. Check in was odd, chiefly because the front desk person (no mask, it's still a pandemic) was coughing all over the place and didn't seem too worried that she was handing us our keys, paperwork to sign, etc. Grant it, there was a partial glass partition but no way should she have been the first person you meet in the hotel. It was apparent that she felt the same way. I get that businesses are working with skeleton staffs right now, but still. Making your first time guests feel a tiny bit welcome would have gone A LONG WAY here. The hotel room was spacious, had a coffee maker and a refrigerator and was very quiet. I heard that there is a nice restaurant and indoor and outdoor pools on the property. That being said, the guest rooms need an overhaul. Everything is very dated, overused and the water pressure for the shower is non existent. During check out, the front desk person refused to print an invoice for us, saying, 'You got a copy of your invoice when you checked in, why can't you use that?" and was argumentative when asked again for a copy of the final invoice. They need to do better. Sorry, Commodores. I wanted to like you but three strikes and you are all the way out.…
We stayed here on the 16th 8/16/21. Tgere was limited staff. Very pleasant. The room was very clean and comfortable. The restaraunt was not open, but tge staff durected us to a great place fir breakfast on Tue. The price was only $10more than our stay 2 years ago.
We were greeted by the owners and from then on it was downhill. Our room had stained carpets, rusted radiator in bathroom, black mold on the ceiling, wallpaper was peeling and painted over in spots. If that wasn’t enough the water turned brown. The explanation was it was rainy weather. They had replaced the tub units which I think they thought constituted renovation. The restaurant, bar, and indoor pool closed. The staff spent their time out behind the hotel smoking and on their phones. Don’t waste your money on this old, rundown, unkept hotel.
