“A proper skiers lodge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

This is very much a belated review as we realised today we had never left one after our stay in October 2010.

When we stayed the Inn was quiet - some rooms had been cleared out for the end of the season. The Inn is clean and the staff friendly. Free coffee is always available - along with cookies - in the reception area. There are also large sofas to sit and enjoy a warm by the amazing fireplace. If you are in a group and want entertainment then there are also tables and a selection of board games to play. Free WiFi is also provided.

Our room was at the back overlooking the large pond and part of a staff car park. But we were not troubled by any noise. The mattress on our bed did need replacing as it was coming to the end of its serviceable life and sagged in on itself.

We did eat a quick bar snack and whilst not the best it was more than passable considering the very reasonable cost.

Conclusion - the Inn is more a hit than a miss.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

We recently stayed at the Commodores Inn and found it a very nice place to stay. The rooms were large and comfortable. The food (breakfast and dinner buffet) was very good and much better than expected. And the facilities were good (swimming pool/jacuzzis.) The ‘public spaces’ (lobby/great room w/fire place & large screen tv, game area) were very ‘family’ comfortable. The cookies were a really excellent treat when we returned from skiing. But to me the most important aspect was the friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism of the staff (from the front desk, to the dinning room, to the housekeeping staff.) No request went unanswered and everyone on the staff was willing to go out of their way to satisfy the guests. I would gladly return to the Commodores Inn the next time I am in Stowe.

Spent a great New Year's weekend at Commodores Inn. A lavish breakfast buffet with sausages, bacon, eggs, fruit, pancakes, bagels, cereal, & danish was included with our very reasonable room rate. (menu varies) Cheerful staff promptly accommodated our requests for extra blanket, hair dryer, and help locating misplaced objects. Families were playing board games and enjoying cookies & hot chocolate in the retro main lobby - it felt quite welcoming to return after the day's activities.

My husband, a light sleeper, said he has slept on better mattresses, but I'm a heavy sleeper and didn't notice any difference. The Inn is clean, easy on the budget, and conveniently located a short distance from Stowe center.

If you're looking for a place to lie your weary bones after a long day on the mountain, the Commodores Inn is the place for you. If you are looking for new, luxurious, or contemporary accommodations, look elsewhere.

Pros:
1. 7 mile/15 minute drive to Stowe Mountain
2. 3 hot tubs and a pool
3. Free breakfast each morning

Cons:
1. Not within walking distance of any sites, restaurants, bars, or ski locations
2. Hotel does not look like it has been updated since the 1970's

This hotel is perfectly located for visiting many places in and around Stowe. The price was right for a weekend getaway (off-season), but the place could certainly use some updating. The decor is 1980s and the bathrooms are just old. However, it was quiet at night, the breakfast was delicious (real maple syrup, of course!) and the staff was cheerful and helpful. It is very close to Ben and Jerry's, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, the village of Stowe (great restaurants and shops) and of course the mountain for skiing/riding. They were very pet-friendly (we took our golden retriever) and there is an amazing fireplace in the lobby (which, with a push of a button from the front-desk staff, became a beautiful roaring fire for us to sit by and read brochures!) We ate breakfast overlooking the lovely small lake and got a great recommendation for pizza delivery one night when we were tired. It was a perfect jumping-off spot for visiting Stowe.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the restaurant and lounge for quiet at night.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we always appreciate the feed back.

We were very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and all that the area has to offer within a short proximity to our inn.

I am glad that you found our staff to be helpful and pleasant. We make every effort to make our guest's feel like part of our family from the moment they walk in the door.

Thank you for your feedback in reference to the needed updates. With the economy the way it has been for several years now, our remodeling has been slow, but steady. We have made great strides in improving our guests’ experiences and intend to continue in this trend as we move forward.

Warm Regards - Karen L. Brown
