I stayed at the Garrison for one night, with three of my children, because we came in town for the marathon. But I would NEVER advise ANYONE to stay here. We drove up and saw open windows on the third floor, with laundry handing out. We should have turned around them but had no options--it was night, the race was... More

I was leery of staying based upon previous reviews, but the owner convinced me to give it a try (via phone). The place was very odd with an indoor pool that looked neglected. The room had two beds with a bathroom in between, so it was a good choice for three people. The TV was old. There was a coffee... More

I'll start by saying I have never written one of these but felt compelled to write this to save you from a similar experience. I stayed here due to it's proximity to a 3 day seminar I was teaching down the road in Warren as well as the price. I have stayed at other places in the valley with nothing... More

I have stayed at the Garrison several times and have never been disappointed. The location is great, the rates are low, and Tucker is the snuggly-est host in the Mad River Valley, I can still remember his wet nose greeting me at the door! If you're doing it right at MRG or the Bush you should be able to sleep... More

I have had a really great time every time at the Garrison Motor Lodge. It may be because i have a special room that i get into every time but it is the most relaxed motel i have ever been in. We can hang out until the break of dawn and it doesn't cause a ruccuss to everyone, the water... More

We arrived at the Garrison two days before New Years. The place was kinda out of date and a condo with four bedrooms consists of two rooms with bunk beds downstairs. We were there to ski so it didn't matter if the place was a little outdated. Within the first few hours of being there the faucet broke and the... More

Problem after problem! Beds were horrible, place was extremely dated, TV was a 19" which switched on and off, and heat broke for a full day. Now that the heat is fixed (due to an oil leak!) and our 'condo' (I use this word LOOSELY) now reeks of burnt oil. The owner handed us a fan and said 'open the... More

Although I think this property is mostly condos, they offer some motel rooms as well. Its a bit outdated and had a strange set-up and very small rooms, but overall it was a decent place for a night's stay. The room was clean and had a mini-fridge and microwave. No complaints, and the price was definitely better than most of... More

Out of date, needs much sprucing up. We had 2 adults in a room that could accomodate up to 8 people. I don't see how 8 adults could have fit in there, especially with one tiny washroom with a toilet that did not flush properly and a shower that had no light fixture in it. As well the kitchen supplies... More
