“Last minute ski trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Hotel staff is great. Patrick will take care of you from behind the desk and Connie will make sure you're fed well. Convenient location to Pico and Killington with many places to eat and drink in between. McGraths Irish Pub is up the road a bit and a great place to eat, drink and listen to some great music.

Only downside is that the walls are thin so you can hear people moving around in the morning. But you're there to get up and ski so why sleep late?

Room Tip: Top floors will have less noise

This review is hard because the people who operate this place are nice and obviously try to offer a good experience. They are attentive and genuine, which is more than one can say about the hired help at many places. And the breakfast is nicer than most. But in my hierarchy of lodging needs, the basics are a comfortable bed, a hot shower and a fast wifi connection. And on this score they were unfortunately 0 for 3. The bed was like a rock, the linens thin and cheap, the shower lukewarm, the wifi slow and at times frozen. I am rooting for this place and hope that they can make the infrastructure investments to offer a more satisfactory experience.

Stayed here with friends durring President's Day weekend. Was surprised at how much there was to do after a long day of snowboarding. In addition to a nice hotel bar, decent sized hot tub, and saunas, this place has a large rec room with fooseball and air hockey tables that are not coin driven so play as much as you like. With friendly staff and clean rooms I'll definitely be back next year.

A group of friends and I stayed here last minute during a ski weekend. The staff was helpful and attentive. The rooms were clean and quiet. We congregated at the hotel bar where the bartender served us great local beers and gave us big smiles despite our taking up the whole bar and being a group of loud 20 somethings. The sauna is great- we spent a nice evening jumping back and forth from sauna to hot tub. Lots of fun! Would certainly stay again and recommend to friends!

The Mendon Mountainview Lodge is a great hotel. Super friendly & helpful staff (they even cleared off everyone’s car on a snowy morning!) Sunny breakfast room and full breakfast was included in the room price. Good game room for children and hot tub & sauna for adults. Heard its under new management & it feels like they are really working to step up the service and rooms. 5 minutes to Pico and 10 minutes to Killington for skiers which is why we initially chose this hotel.

So first the good: The hotel is about 10 mins from Killington which is clutch. The people here are incredibly friendly and helpful. There is a nice complimentary hot breakfast. There's a game room and a hot tub, which is definitely nice after a long day of skiing. Now the bad: the hotel itself has seen better days. It's a little run down. The shower was awful, it was a trickle of barely warm water (not what you want after a day of skiing and being cold). Most importantly though, the walls are made of cardboard. You can hear EVERY word said in the room next to you or the game room down the hall, even if people are speaking low. Not great when you want to get up at 6:30 to be the first ppl on the moutain and your next door neighbors want to party all night (which is understandable, Killington is a party town, I just don't want to hear it until 5AM).

A friend and I stayed here, as last min reservations had to be made! Mountain view was chosen for us, but believe me, they will be chosen BY us next time!! Unfortunately our trip to VT wasnt under pleasant circumstances, and definitely not a vacation, as We had to rush to VT to deliver some news to a family member who lived in the area. We rushed here to beat the wrath of "Blizzard Nemo" and arrived at 3am. They left our room open for us, as we were going to get in very late. (we stayed thru Monday, as back home received 30+ inches). The accommodations were cozy and clean, and it was a relief after a 5 hour drive, to have comfortable accommodations! we were greeted that morning by super friendly staff! we met everyone from the housekeeper Connie, the waitress Rebecca, the General Manager Pat, and even the Chef! (By the way, the best breakfasts we have had while traveling anywhere!). the friendliest people anyone could meet. it felt as if we had known them for years. After explaining our situation as to what brought us here, they went out of their way to make our stay stress free, and as if we were home with friends. they checked in on us, made suggestions, helped us with some issues and just were totally there for us at every turn!!! We cannot thank them enoght for making our stay here so pleasant and awesome despite our painful reason for coming to VT to begin with! i cannot Not also mention Maggie, our waitress the next morning, and also Gordie, the bartender, whom helped uswith some kitchen utensils at 10:00 pm at nite! they all seemed to drop everything to make sure we had everything we needed! They are fantastic and amazing people, and we would FOR sure tell everyone we know, and come back ourselves, hopefully, under more pleasant circumstances! We must also mention that when we awoke after the blizzard, our cars were cleaned off of all that snow!!!! It was nice not to have to venture out 15 min before in freezing temps before heading off!! its little things like that that go Such a long way!! (thanks Pat!!). We understand this place is under new management, and let us say that I'm not sure what the management and staff were like before, but it's obvious that these employees that are here now, are what make MountainView what it is!! We can't wait to come back in the summer and enjoy the pool and more breathtaking views of Pico mountain from the dining room and the deck!! Thanks again for making this trip so much better and even making us forget why we had came in the first place!! --Michelle and Brenda
P.S. we hope that by the time we return Dinner will be offered in the restaurant as well! If he cooks as good as the breakfasts, imagine Chef's prime rib?? :)
