The motel was in a great location. Very centrally located. The staff ( Melissa & Vince were very accommodating ) They are also very friendly.... This motel is great for families and your pets can also stay here.

Coffee made daily along with freshly baked muffins, pets allowed, immaculately kept bathrooms, comfortable pillows and staff that makes one feel right at home. The leather couches in the great room are cozy. It's centrally located between Weston and Chester and close drive/bike ride to Lowel lake. A real gem in the Green Mtn state. I spent 20+ years coming...

Vince the manager was the best! The food was excellent so was the service. The rooms were clean and the bedding comfortable. The bedspreads could use to be washed, we took them off and it could use a fresh coat of paint but I would definetly stay there again. No air conditions but we didn't need it in September. I...

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback and for the kind words. My apologies for the soiled bedspreads. No excuse, we must have missed them. Painting is part of a long term project that is in the works. I am glad to hear that you would stay with us again. Again, thank you for taking the time...

We got this room for a very reasonable rate for one night in August. The lodge is Swiss looking, and is basically attractive, but construction seems low-budget. A new set of windows all over would make this facility shine much more brightly! The desk manager was polite and nice enough, but he says he is really only accessible by phone...

We came here because our camping trip was rained out. Vince, the general manager, set us up in a wonderful and clean room. Excellent value, complementary muffins and coffee, and our dog was welcomed at no extra cost. Highly recommend! The room was very spacious with a set of bunk beds in the second bedroom.

We have now stayed at Upper Pass a number of times, both in and out of ski season. We love the proximity to not only Magic Mountain (a few steps away) but to all the areas we like to visit while in Vermont. Its staff, especially Manager Vince, are consistently warm & welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Back...

This place is so comfortable and relaxing. Being dog friendly, is a plus in my mind. The lounge area is so comfortable you have to be careful not to fall asleep, although I doubt anyone would care if you did. Vince is so helpful, very knowledgeable of the area. Plan on coming back with husband to celebrate our anniversary.

Stayed here with my fiance. The check-in was a bit slow because we could not find anyone at the front desk (we were there in the off season). The room was clean and comfortable. There was a nice place to get drinks downstairs. A good hotel overall and right at the bottom of a ski area.
