“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Let me start by saying this is not the Waldorf. What it is, however, is a nice little motel in Stowe that gives a great value for the price. The rooms were warm and clean. Two double beds, flat screen TV....what more do you need? The sliding glass doors open onto a small private deck that looks out to the lovely stream at the edge of the property. The grounds are well maintained and are pleasant to walk around. There is a nice pool inside a separate building on the property that was clean and inviting. The breakfast wasn't great but wasn't bad either. Along with the Fresh fruit and cereal offered, one can find Yogurt, some delicious granola, muffins and bagels. Hot coffee and tea, apple and orange juice are also available. Also, delicious breakfast sausage on a biscuit was an added bonus! The location is great and easy to get to. Definitely worth staying at.

We have been repeat guests of the Sun and Ski for the past 20 some years and have never been disappointed. Extemely well located between the Stowe village and Mount Mansfield, just across from the recreation path, it has beautiful grounds bordered by a babbling brook. Hammock, piknik tables, individual patios with chairs, all so welcoming. We love the plentiful continental plus breakfast, the family room with its fireplace, book racks, games and puzzles. The indoor pool and hot tub are great for fun and relaxation. All day coffee, tea and snacks. Friendly, helpful staff. Although the wear and tear of the years is apparent in some aspects, the rooms are clean and well kept. This is a place we love and recommend.

Thank you for your kind review, and for coming back to our place all of these years! We're extremely happy you keep having such a good time at the Sun & Ski! As for your comment on the "wear and tear of the years", your point is well taken: we are currently doing, and will continue to do, significant work on both our rooms and building exterior.

Thanks again, and we hope to see you again soon!

Although an older motel, was clean and amenties were sufficient. Had ski racks on wall. Breakfast was very good. Staff was most helpful. Exterior needs a little more care but having a clean room was important.

Thank you for your review! We'd like you to know that, having assumed ownership of this property in January 2012, we're working hard to update our interiors and buildings, starting with a full remodeling of many rooms next month. We take your comments very seriously!

We'd love for you to come back to see the results of our efforts!

This is an old motel that has been tastefully and frugally converted to more modern rooms and accommodations---flat screen TV, fridge, two double beds per room, AC, small deck w/ 2 chairs facing large green lawn w/ brook beyond. Clearly accommodating skiers, w/ racks on the wall for 3 pr. of skis. The hotelier was very personable. I thought that the room needed another light on a chest of drawers. Our companion in the next room had more issues with a bulb out in the only lamp beside the bed, and the plug dangling from the wall. So clearly the management needs to check the rooms more carefully.
There was a wonderful enclosed pool that would be great after a day on the slopes or hiking the nearby trails. We did not try the complimentary breakfast…all items were cold and yoghurt and museli did not seem appealing. I am assuming at ski time a warmer and more hearty breakfast is offered…would certainly ask.

Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear about the issue you travel companion had with one of the lamps. It is our policy to check all the lights before renting the room, but that obviously didn't happen here.

Regarding your comment on our breakfast, we can only wish you WOULD have come in for it, because we actually do serve hot items every day. As you can read from other reviews, our guests are generally very happy with our breakfast and consider it to be a great added value.

Thanks again for your review. We hope you enjoyed your stay at our hotel!

We went in August, definitely not go during the high season, but it was still cheaper than most hotels in town. The beds were very comfortable, the room was spacious, but most of all, the complimentary breakfast was excellent: lot of choice, good food. They also seemed to have a really nice park, although we did not spend enough time in the hotel to be sure. Definitely recommend it.

Thank you so much for your nice review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay at our hotel! Regarding your comment on our "park", I think you are referring to the Stowe Golf Park, the golf-in-miniature park on our property that is a very popular attraction in Stowe.

Thanks again for your stay and review!

We stayed here for our one year anniversary with our dogs in one of their loft rooms. The room was huge which is helpful with two dogs. The property sits right on river which the dogs loved to swim in and we walked through. Pool and spa are clean and refreshing and theres a great mini golf course on the property. Room was nice and bed was comfortable, with the windows shut you don't really hear any outside noise and the new AC units are very quiet so you can run them while you sleep on hot nights. Staff and owners are very friendly and knowledgable about the area.

Defiantly coming back!

Room Tip: Loft is perfect for two people and some pets, or a group of people, plenty of room.

First time visit to Stowe and the stay here made our experience even better. Love sitting by the creek which is a stone throw from our room. Moreover the pool area looks brand new with a nice pool and jacuzzi.

Overall, a great value.
