Best Western Plus Waterbury - Stowe
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Waterbury
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 25, 2011

Built in the 1970s, this place has a strong "dated" feel about it. Bedroom furniture, cumbersome and dark gives a depressing ambiance. Beds are comfortable but why there is only one blanket per bed in freezing outside weather, I do not know! Bathroom shower past its best, but functional enough. The worst feature of my stay here, is the infernally noisy giant ice-maker, which reverberates like a jet engine every five minutes or so, seriously disturbing sleep and my room isn't even situated next to it!
There is a swimming-pool, smelling so strongly of chlorine that I shall avoid using it.
Complimentary breakfast is fine, but restaurant area is gloomy with no windows. "Gloomy" rather describes the whole place.
The weirdest thing is the instructions for house-keeper card, which asks you if you require your room cleaned or just your trash emptied. I would expect a room, (especially a bathroom) to be thoroughly cleaned daily as a matter of course.
This is a place to sleep(if the ice-maker allows) - nothing more.

well couldn't believe the price $200 for this just plain motel room.. I think the prices for going to Vermont foliage are really to much. I would never bother again for one thing you have to book in advance and pay top dollar and you risk not even seeing hardly any color because each year is different. That said.. this Best Western had a great front desk staff working under lots of pressure with a packed house. I have never asked to change motel rooms but ours smelled stale and not sure the cause I didn't want to get my asthma acting up so they changed us to a new room which was fine. The rooms was not that large ok for a couple but would be cozy with a couple children. Bed was fantastic.. it was quiet and we slept great. Breakfast was very good .. well stocked even though we went late and I am sure it was a very busy morning.

Very impressed with this Best Western. Front staff very professional and welcoming. Location is very good. Room was outstandingly clean and serviced. Free Wi-fi, nice large room, very comfortable bed. They skimped on bedcovers and we had to ask for an additional blanket.Bathroom spotless. The only downsider is you would think after paying $130 or so for a room you would have two drinking cups and a small tube of lotion in the bathroom. Not a dealbreaker but not asking too much either.

Room Tip: Ask for an extra blanket when checking in - they skim on bedcovers

I wasn't expecting much from this hotel but was pleasantly surprised. It is a Best Western Plus that was right off the highway so it was easy to find. The rooms were better than I expected and I was happy for the free internet. The restaurant was fine and breakfast was included.

It is close to Stowe and to most of the sites in the area such as the Ben and Jerry's factory. Again, it wasn't fancy but a step above what I though a Best Western would offer so I would stay here again! If you get a chance drive up 108 to Smuggler's Gap...it is a great drive! Don't pay for a toll road.

Room Tip: There are only two floors

We were planning a trip up to Vermont to the Stowe area and remembered this hotel fondly from a weekend stay in 2009. It is still as great and convenient as we remembered it.
It is less than a mile to the Ben and Jerry's factory and very close to other attractions we enjoyed (a cider mill, downtown Stowe, etc). Service was quick and efficient, rooms were clean and quaint. The lobby has a really nice fireplace. We enjoyed the breakfast offered and particularly the make-your-own waffles.
We were lucky enough to visit in time for Stowe's Oktoberfest. The next couple of weeks should be spectacular up at the BW with the foliage, the hotel is located up on a hill and will probably provide great visibility of the changing colors.
I would highly recommend this hotel and it will be our hotel of choice next time we make it up to Vermont.

Room Tip: There isn't an elevator, so if you can't take the stairs ask for a room on the first floor.

After a long days drive from Ontario we were delighted to arrive in our pre booked room at the Waterbury Best Western. Check in was extremely efficient and the room very spacious. Our room had both a fridge and microwave. Our room was on the main level so it was a breeze to unload the luggage. The room was clean and the grounds very pretty. We enjoyed a cocktail on a lovely bench overlooking the valley. The indoor pool has a lovely patio adjacent which looked nice although with school holiday very busy. Grocery store was handy and the room was so nice we ate dinner in.
Bought lovely wine and cheese at the Cabot Factory. Delicious! The bed a Simmons I believe was the best sleep I had had in months. Would love to buy one of those!!!!! Nice and quiet location.
Would definitely return for another respite.

Room Tip: Always be sure to ask for fridge and microwave if you need. And always ask re elevator if they have...

I really like this place. Close to all the attractions. Looked forward to returning to the room after a long day of shopping and eating all the Vermont goodies. We had a huge suite with a tremendous fireplace in the bedroom area. The bathroom was also huge and nicely appointed. Suite also had a microwave, mini-fride and Keurig machine. Staff was also very helpful and accomodating. Restaurant on site was good. Felt like a got a really good bang for my buck.

Room Tip: Spend a little more and get a suite on the main floor.
