Inexpensive lodging near Mt. Snow

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
It looks like I will be passing through the Mt. Snow area later in the month (midweek) on business. I will be by myself, and would like to try to get in a couple more days of skiing at a low cost before the season ends.

Anybody have a suggestion for an inexpensive, simple but clean mom & pop type motel nearby? I do want a private room and bath, but basically, that's all I really need.

I did a quick search within Epic and found nothing. Yahoo yellow pages turned up quite a few hits in the area, but only the upscale lodging had web sites listing their rates. Surprisingly, the AAA book for VT only had a couple of listings in the W. Dover / Wilmington area.

Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

There are a number of motels in the area that certainly don't LOOK upscale; but looks in or around a ski area mean nothing, I suppose.
I would suggest a Yahoo search of motels in Wilmington, Marlboro, West Dover. They don't need their own web sites to be listed there.
Sorry, but I personally don't know of any motels in the area, but this time of year, and with the weather being what it has been, I can't imagine they'll be sold out, especially in mid-week.
Good Luck.

Thanks, Hugo.

FWIW, I did a Yahoo search and did find all the listings that you refer to. The problem is that most of them only gave a phone number and address but no rate or website. So, unless I start calling them, I have no idea if an individual listing is for a basic mom & pop place, a place where "Dueling Banjo's" is the theme song, or a fancy-schmanzy B&B. That's why I asked for suggestions here.

Since a few of the higher end listings point to websites, I know a few to exclude, but if anyone remembers names of a few basic "I-just-want-to-ski" places, let me know.

Thanks again,

We stayed in Brattleboro recently when we were at Mount Snow. It isn't far at all. I booked the Holiday Inn on line. It is fairly new and was very good. (hot tub, pool)

Check out the Old Red Mill near Mt. Snow. Room rates are about 85 bucks a night, and it's a nice little place. They're a couple miles from the mountain.

Last time I stayed there was over 10 years ago. However, I drove by recently and the place hasn't changed at all. Still a good bet.

You may also want to take a look at the lodging properties on my site (link in sig). Navigate to Mount Snow and click the lodging link. Hope this helps!

If you stay in Brattleboro you reduce your motel bill by 50%! There are several decent motels, some recently renovated, just off of I-91 at the first Brattleboro exit for about $55 plus tax. Many of the motels around Mt Snow are over priced ($120+ a night)on weekends and run down.

If you stay in Brattleboro stop at the Chelsea Royal Diner for a great breakfast. This Diner is on the right hand side of Rt 9 as you head to Mt Snow in West Brattleboro.

The Lodge at Mt. Snow IS a good facility.
After Ski buffet in the bar. Veggies and dip + Fried wings and things. Beer is reasonable too!
The Patrol shows up there regularly (though not this Saturday, Party elsewhere)
Pool, Classic New England Architecture.

No Idea about rates, but I bet it's fair.
