This is an old inn with charm. No handicap access and crazy steep stairs to get upstairs. Super small room and bath. I never saw any staff or got paperwork. At least they provided a fan for comfort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to ski mountain"
It was just what we needed for our family at last minute, though helpful we arrived late given room was over tavern.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not worth the money"
The place wasn't worth the money. Choose to Killington but nothing around inn. Breakfast want included which in my eyes ruined the b&b feel. Wouldn't book againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Roughing it roughly"
Overall impression was of a nice restaurant/bar that wasn't open. Entrance not clearly marked...... Room was cold, toilet was not seated properly on the floor, therefore it rocked. Tub was rusty with no heat source for the bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An inexpensive hotel close to Okemo and Killington"
The room was clean, small bathroom and comfortable bed with Direct TV and free Wi-Fi,but that's all you're getting. Fine for two days skiing and staying overnight but would not recommend staying longer. There are zero amenities so bring soap! A lot cheaper than staying on the mountain. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An easy stay if you plan to go skiing in Kilington"
Simple rooms. Fit one person comfortably. The hotel is ~15 minutes from Killington, so quite simple for being there when the ski day starts.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Killington & Okemo"
Very charming inn that is 15 minutes from Okemo and under 20 minutes from Killington. There is a ver nice bar and restaurant inside the inn, perfect for apres ski or a nice dinner. I stayed in the Notch room, which was usual for a B&B: somewhat dingy and not a lot of the creature comforts. If all you're looking for is a place to stay while you go skiing, […] then this place is great - cheap rates and close to the action. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, rough on edges, good value, good reataurant"
Stayed in "Union" room: very small and very rustic, but clean, and bed comfortable. Larger rooms available. Hotel owner MIA on arrival and never saw him-given key by very helpful bartender not associated with hotel. Spearate heat ok, but room was cold on arrival. Hot water very hot, handle came off in shower but it worked. No AM breakfast. Restaurant […] and bar in hotel but separate owners. Restaurant was excellent quality, apparently chef has a good following. Recommend eating here even if you don't stay. We had a room above the dining room side (not bar side) and it was not noisy. Suspect rooms could be noisy if crowded-we stayed on a Thursday night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Do not waste your time or money"
I do not recommend this place at all. It was extremely unclean and dilapidated. Save yourself the time and money and look elsewhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly but rustic"
A little further away then I thought it would be to ski area. Friendly staff but a bit rustic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Family ski vacation"
Both the staff and owner were extremely cordial, helpful and friendly. The location to Killington ski resort was a bit of a drive [20 minutes] but only because the resort itself takes about a good 10 minutes from one base lodge to the other. The Inn was extremely easy to find as it's located on the corner of Rt. 100 and Rt. 100A [anyone who frequently […] drives to most of Vermont's ski resorts will be well aware of Rt. 100]. Facilities were really old and could use a little modernization [thin walls, creaky floorboards, slightly worn carpeting in areas etc.], however it is the way it is in order to preserve the classic Vermont lodge atmosphere which it captures really well. Linen though, was clean and fresh. For a small Inn it was a bit disappointing that they only offer breakfast on holidays so plan to eat elsewhere if you have an early start. The restaurant however has nice food for lunch and dinner. This is a perfect place to stay if your intention is to spend most of the day on the mountain and/or exploring the neighbouring towns. Pricing was moderate and I found numerous sites that often have great deals for the Inn, so hunt those down and you wont be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay but a bit out of the way"
This is a good place to stay if you are in the area. It is a bit out of the way - not alot of restaurants or amenities nearby and you do NOT get cell phone service but it is quiet, clean and cute. We stayed on a weekday so there was no breakfast but the room was nice and since there were only 2 other families staying there we were able to play board […] games and pool in the common area without being crowded. The owner is pretty amenable to anything you want to do - have pizza delivered, pull out board games, bring your own food and drink, ect. Very laid back, make yourself at home atmosphere. Just be prepared for the owner to not always be around since he runs the place by himself (which is only a problem if you expect to be waited on hand and foot) and also expect to be pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Other than that its a super cute, romantic, fun place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tiny room, but the last one available."
We were very surprised at the size of the room, but it was very clean and we were only going to be here for one night. Breakfast was adequate, nothing fancy. No bar available. We would not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst room ever - Straight out of a horror movie"
This was the dirtiest room I have ever booked in years of travel. There was hair and dust everywhere. There was painters tape on the walls. It was 50 degrees in the room. There were no rugs. It smeeled of mold as well. This room was worse than a $19 room where you would go when you hit rock bottom in life. My wife and I left and drove 5 hours at night […] to arrive back at home instead and lost a day of our weekend getaway. It was really that bad. Never stay here!

"Qualité de l'auberge à réévaluer"
L 'auberge est très mal localise, n'offrant aucun service aux environs, à l'intersection de 2 routes, au bas d'une pente et à quelques mètres de la chaussée. Avons refuse de dormir dans de telle chambre aux fenêtres sales, à la décoration non renouvelée, au tapis de propreté douteuse, petite et dont les couvertures de lit n'inspirent pas confiance. Le […] prix d'un tel hébergement est vraiment trop élevé. Avons du payer la moitié du prix pour annuler la chambre. Malgré les avis d'Expedia.ca qui nous a assure, au début octobre, qu'il n'y avait aucune autre chambre disponible aux environs de Woodstock, avons trouve à nous loger dans un motel plus convenable que le Salt Ash Inn. Donc cette nuit nous a coûté très cher! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"You have been warned"
You have been warned this place is a nightmare ... Arrived 6pm with family and there was not a sole around .. Rang the contact number .. No response ... Waited half hour no one. In the meantime looked around.. Place was like it had been closed up for the season .. Except all rooms and doors open.. Absolutely no security in a very remote place.. Our intended room looked like it was something out of a seventies council estate.. Awful.. Booked it through Expedia who should be embarrassed to have such a place on their books . Decided to bite the bullet and move on .. Still no response from Expedia which I think is a disgrace.

No one in when we arrived. Waited more than half an hour after ringing the 200 number on the phone. Tried to sit on the porch to wait but chairs so dusty and even vines growing over some of them. Bar stools on top of tables. All downstairs doors open. Empty boxes and rubbish in the lobby area and the computer on with previous guests details on screen!! Totally insecure. Felt like the setting for a horror movie. This is not an inn. We decided to find somewhere else to stay for the night and lose our prepaid booking. We don't stay in 5 star places....always 2 or 3...and we have stayed in hundreds of budget guest houses all over the world so certainly don't expect luxury but this place was totally creepy...I wouldn't have slept if we'd stayed. The owner should take notice of his bad reviews or close the place down. I dread to think what it would be like in winter and yes, it's miles away from ski centres. How on earth it could be advertised as a ski hotel defeats me!
"no coffee, no pub"
08/02/14 adewall Annapolis
I had stayed here about 20 years ago as a child...full breakfast and family atmosphere. That was then, this is now. This time, I was in one of only 3 rooms occupied on a weeknight. Clean sheets, clean bathroom, clean sink. All that was good! Owner was not warm or friendly when I pulled into the driveway as he and his family were unloading groceries. They looked at me like I had 3 heads. The pub had been closed for several months. There was no coffee or anything in the morning. Apparently they only serve food on weekends if there are enough people there. It was a ghost town, so I dropped my key in the slot and got coffee and a breakfast sandwich at the gas station in Bridgewater.
"You get what you pay for"
This is not a 4 star hotel. I don't understand why people rate it that way. We stayed in the Wilder room which is upstairs. They door was very difficult to unlock and the impossible to lock from the outside. The lock was very loose with the screws coming out. When we informed the owner he told us that it was because of the weather! Breakfast is 6:30 - 9:30. We went down at 7:00. There were no coffee cups. We had to wait for them to get washed. Then there was no coffee when the cups finally arrived. The bathroom had a half roll of TP on the wall and a spAre half roll on the back of the toilet. We had three adults in our party and this was not enough for an entire weekend. We had to go down and request more. The room was warm and clean but not deserving of the 4 star rating
"Bed, No Breakfast, No Staff"
02/28/14 ClassOf1969 Amissville, Virginia
I last stayed at the Salt Ash about 20 years ago, and while the room was okay and the bed comfortable there was a definite slide. We arrived to find NOONE to greet us, just our key on a table. Interestingly the room pictured as the one we selected was not the room we were assigned, which needless to say was somewhat inferior in appointments. Another couple arrived and didn't even find their key, and calling the posted help number caused the phone to ring at the empty front desk. The owner had called to welcome us before we left home, but we never saw him the whole time we were there. It wasn't quite Bates Motel or Overlook Hotel creepy, but it seemed like doors were open 24/7 with no security. Salt Ash shouldn't be called a bed and breakfast, as no breakfast (not even coffee either in the lobby or the room) was offered. There was a sign asking guests to turn down the heat when they left the room, and while we didn't set it very high we left it on - who wants to return from a day of skiing to a cold room. One day someone on the staff turned it down for us. In the meantime, all manner of lights and fans were running in the bar and outside, day and night, with nobody around. On the whole, I'll keep my memory of the first time I stayed there, soaking in the hot tub (long gone) while falling snow sizzled on the water, but I won't be back.
"Bed, but not breakfast"
02/23/14 KateD2012 Farmington, Connecticut
The accommodations were basic but cozy. Check in was easy and the entire place is charming enough. The room and bathroom were clean and adequately stocked. There is no cell service but wifi is easy to access and fast. There is only one TV channel, which didn't really matter as my friends and I fell asleep right away after a full day of skiing. Breakfast, however, was a disappointment. The waffles, which was probably the most substantial item of the food choices, was grocery-grade and was served in it's box. Guests had to toast it themselves, which is fine, except that there was only one toaster for the entire breakfast room. Coffee was not hot and the water for tea was lukewarm. The rest of the breakfast menu were cereal and fruit. If you want a good breakfast for a full day on the mountain, you will have to get it elsewhere. While my stay was not bad, I will definitely try other accommodations in the area.
"Best place to stay in vermont"
02/23/14 Kyle D Ballston Spa, New York
if you are going to killington for more than 1 night this is the place to be. 10 min from the Rear gondola. The staff is supper helpful, friendly and laid back. there is always great beer on tap in thier bar and the food is fantastic. A place like this should cost a fortune however it is so affordable you will think its to good to be true. dont miss out on the salt ash.
"Feb vacation week"
02/23/14 MRCA_review Boston, Massachusetts
Spent the second half of the kids school vacation in Plymoth skiing at Okemo and staying at the Salt Ash Inn! The Inn is about 20 minutes out from Okemo and from Killington in opposite directions. Okemo mountain was great sun and snow - with a day of rain in between. The Salt Ash Inn was very quaint. The room was above the bar "the Moore' and accomodated 2 teenages and mself and my husband nicely. Lots of space. The room was a little noisy at times.. but to be expected given it was above the Restaurant. The rstaurant and menu is really nicely done. The kids loved the profitter rolls made onsite and had a great time playing pool while we enjoyed a beer or two after skiiing. The rooms in the Inn are very cute and old world. No frills but warm with lots of hot water and clean and comfortable beds. For the price I have no complaints. We will defintely be back - Thanks Al!
"In the Dog House"
01/31/14 aelysium New York City, New York
My husband and I have a dog, and it's difficult to find accommodations that are pet friendly near Killington. Seeing the favorable rating here, we booked a room. I am not sure what the rest of the rooms are like, but the pet friendly room was in the extension of the main house. We have backpacked in various places, from staying in a hut to pitching our own tents. The only reason I would put this room above camping is because there is an indoor toilet with a hot shower that has plenty of water pressure. Otherwise, I wish I brought my sleeping bag. The outside temp was -20 degrees, and we only had a thin wool blanket. Even on the second night after the room had a chance to warm up, we had our dog in the bed (which we NEVER do) for extra warmth. Even though the price supposedly included breakfast, we never saw a soul in the mornings, nor smelled any coffee brewing. Good if you don't mind bare accommodations and amenities, as it is a short 15 minutes drive to the slopes. Otherwise, stay elsewhere.

Had a great time this weekend! The inn keeper was super nice and really helpful. Our previous accommodations had fallen through and so we literately had to find a new hotel for six people and four nights in three hours. Al was great and really understanding. He responded fast and cleared up all of our questions. In addition he and the restaurant/bar staff treated us like family. If you are looking for a place thats really relaxed and laid back this is it!
