“Not so good”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

I really hate to give a less than average review. Especially because the owner was such a nice man with a family. But sadly when you are in the hospitality business nice doesn't cut it. This place is ok I guess for teens or younger folks on a skiing trip a place to crash. But for folks looking for a nice ,clean and reasonable place to stay for a couple of days. Look elsewhere I will say no more

Room Tip: There is no good room at this hotel. Sorry

We visited the area on the weekend in high season, so available rooms were hard to find, and if you could find one - it was very pricy. Considering the reviews in tripadvisor, we decided to check it out as it was priced fairly cheap. First, don't count on the GPS to bring you there. We needed to stop at some other hotel on the way to give us directions. Although the hotel name contains "Killington", it's not in Killington at all..
Anyway, this is a typical american motel - all rooms are on the ground floor with doors facing the parking lot. The room we had seemed to be last updated in the 1950's. Everything felt very old.. Although things felt dirty (probably because it wasn't updated in so many years), we didn't encounter dirty sheets or towels.
Only when we went for breakfast we realized the motel has a large common room with pool table and other games which was quite nice. Breakfast itself was quite a surprise considering it was complimentary.
There are few restaurants nearby. You can drive 10-15 minutes to get to the nearest resturant.
Overall, I would recommend it only if you can't afford anything better in the area.

I am absolutely amazed at the positive reviews of this motel.

We booked the Killington Pico Motor Inn for one night during a 9 day tour of New England. In hindsight I should have realised that you only get what you pay for, it was cheap!

Firstly, we couldn't find the place, the GPS took us to a ski lodge complex. The receptionist here looked up the motel and said it was half a mile away but we still couldn't find it. After an hour of driving around in torrential rain we rang the motel to be told that it was 7 miles further down the road!

We arrived at the motel reception and eventually after a few minutes of calling, the proprietor (I assume that he was the owner as the place seemed to be deserted) came to the counter, it seemed that I had disturbed his lunch as he was obviously finishing a mouthful. However, that said, he was very pleasant and polite and checked us in.

We walked along to the room and the first impression is that the glass in the doors appeared to be boarded up. In actual fact this was a double door, the wooden inner door showing through the glass of the outer. I assume this is for security.

We entered the room and the first thing to notice was that the place was damp and musty and smelled of dust. There was dust everywhere and it seemed that the place had not been used for some time. All that said the weather was atrocious and so we began to settle in.

Within 5 minutes my wife was bitten by an insect. Due to recent medical treatment she is susceptible to infection and this caused us some concern, I appreciate that this can't be avoided in this area of forest and mountains but to be bitten within 5 minutes of arriving in a hotel room was disconcerting to say the least. A second bite 2 minutes later was the last straw and my wife decided that she could not stay at this motel. We left and drove around the area.

A few miles along the road we came across "The Grey Bonnet" hotel and checked in there at around £10 more than the cost of the Pico Motor Inn. A different experience entirely. I drove back to the KP Motor Inn and was met at reception by a lady who, whilst again very pleasant, seemed surprised by the lack of hygiene that I had reported. She did offer another room but frankly it was too late. She didn't offer a refund!

The booking, made through booking.com offered free cancellation up to 2 days before check in. Obviously this had expired, however, as we had not used the room at all and it was clear that nothing had been done immediately before our arrival to facilitate our arrival, on my return home I e-mailed the motel. I explained the situation and stated that, as we had not experienced the night in the room or breakfast, if the owner was willing to consider some kind of reimbursement I would not submit a review of the hotel, or submit a non committal review.

I did not receive a reply.

This is clearly for those on a very tight budget such as backpackers or a lads weekend away. it was the worst experience of a 14 day vacation in New England and New York and for a mature couple such as us travelling for leisure, my recommendation is to avoid the place.

Room Tip: Avoid the place

I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone that is just passing through for a night or short weekend. It was absolutely everything we needed and very clean. And the owner was so welcoming. He was so friendly and caring I would be happy to stay there again. If you are looking for a budget place to stay overnight this is it. It's not fancy, but had everything we needed. The refrigerator in the room was very nice. The breakfast was good as well. The places are few and far between here and this was an excellent stay.

We were in the area to see the autumn colours which were spectacular. The facilities are fairly basic but adequate and the staff really went overboard to help make our stay a good one. Although there was no hair drier in the room they are availalbe from the desk, We rec Sugar and Spice just down the road breakfasts there are excellent, the staff really friendly and its very good value for money. As a visitor from the UK it was great to find such helpful friendly people. Avoid the Itallian Restuarant Peppinos though unless you are a fan of tinned tomatoes they are in everything!

We were making our way to Maine and had some unplanned time to spend in the Killington area. Booked online and was pleasantly suprised. While it's an older building, the owners have fixed it up very nice. Reminded us of a B&B experience (without the breakfast). The owners were really friendly and helpful when we wanted to stay an extra day. The rate is outstanding for a non-smoking King room, particularly at the peak Fall leaf viewing season. Would definately come back if the opportunity arose.
