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
"Nice location no personal contacts"
Place needs more if a personal touch, coffee in the morning , more feeling of security , options to buy a beverage in the beautiful resturant and barGenuine Expedia 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
Small but good for an overnight stay.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!

"Worst Hotel I ever saw!"
When we arrived there was no staff, just a note on how to get to the rooms. Rooms were 100 degrees and floors felt like you could fall through them. Hotel was old and toilet in one of the rooms was not cleaned from previous guest. We had booked 3 rooms but left and drove to Rutland and stayed in another Hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
"Salt Ash Win"
12/17/14 Kurt S Ronkonkoma, New York, United States
This place is awesome! Quant inn tucked into the hills of Plymouth VT, Long trail Brewery is right up the road as are Okemo and Killington. The staff is fantastic, very polite and helpful. Great beer on tap at the bar. The rooms are very cozy, I stayed in the moore room which holds 5 people and has a separate room with a queen bed which is great for families on a vacation, and you really cant beat the price. All around amazing place. Can not wait to go back in the summer!
"Best BnB EVER!!!!"
12/15/14 Wiley G West Orange, New Jersey, United States
Do you fancy a quite place to hang up your shoes after a long Vermont hike or Bike ride down the Vermont country roads? How about relaxing at your own personal restaurant and bar after a great day on the mountain? Well the Salt Ash Inn provides awesome affordable, cozy Vermont living not far from local mountains. Its also less than 15 minutes from the FAMOUS Long Trail Brewery Co. (amazing beer!). My wife and I stay at the Salt Ash every time we come to Vermont and love it!!!!
"Cozy, Quaint, and Full of Character"
12/15/14 b00gie0n NYC
I cannot express enough how wonderful The Salt Ash Inn is. I spent a weekend up there with a bunch of friends and had the most amazing time. The entire place has a super homey feel, with an adorable fire place, cozy rooms, and really sweet staff. For the price of the rooms, I felt that my friends and I got WAY more than we paid for!! We spent time there in early December (a few days a ago) and are already thinking of taking another trip up from New York in the summertime. The only reason I was at all hesitant to write a review was because I didn't want everyone to find out about this place and drive the prices up. Can't wait to visit again!
The whole place was so cute and way bigger than it seemed online!! There were balconies in a lot of rooms and a huge backyard with a fire pit. Very beautiful with the nicest people running the place!!
"A wonderful weekend!"
12/15/14 Trevor T
I recently spent a weekend at the Salt Ash Inn with enough friends that we sold the place out. Personally I had a really cozy room with a working fire place that was a great addition. Everyone left with a smile on their face from a great weekend. Al was very hands on with anything we needed and really helped make a memorial weekend. I would and will recommend this to my friends and family!
10/18/14 MrRedlands Redlands, California
The place is below needs improvement. Most of the other reviews are accurate. The management is kind of hard to find in person, but when i called once with a question the guy answered. The heating system, needs lots of work. it cannot be turned higher than 68 (i guess 68 is warm in vermont) even up to 68 it only worked for about 10 mins after the manager or owner showed up to fix it. had to wear a sweater constantly when i the room. got very chilly at night. but with a few blankets wasnt too bad (they do have some nice blankets, bed covers) The stairs are very steep and narrow, especially to the two rooms on the third floor. Kind of feels that you own the place or you're in your house. all empty and quiet, no front desk person or even a desk for that matter. Usually i dont bother the front desk at any of the hotels anyways, but its nice to know that someone is there. The room was a nice size, bed comfortable, hot water for showers, wi-fi was good, one microwave on the ground level in something that was once the dining room (maybe breakfast was offered in the past), no fridge (big or small) By the TV there was an envelope "..... tipping is good Karma!" .... i wanted to leave a response (good service will get you a tip without asking) with so many negatives i didnt think this place deserved a tip. Just because it didnt rain on the inside doesnt mean that i should leave a tip. TIP is for OUTSTANDING and AWESOME SERVICE. My rating is based on the lack of heat and the envelope that was begging for a tip and that i didnt feel that whoever owns this place cares about serving the public by providing a good service. * TIP .... dont ask for a tip (offer better service than the tip will follow)
"BEWARE! Read Below! New Owner/manager"
10/16/14 Butch M West Springfield, Massachusetts
At one time, this place looks like it was great. Another site has some great pics of fire places lit and lively. This is not that time. It appears the place was bought out 12-18 months ago. When we arrived the entire first floor was cold, no heat. We were put in the wrong room, we reserved and paid for a queen/2 twin and were put in a queen. Than was fixed. Get in the only room they had which was the 5 person and it was cold. Thermostat is locked to only go to 68. Took almost 3 hours for the room to warm up as, remember, the 1st floor isn't being heated and the room we are over is the unused pub. Did I mention that? The pub is just and empty space. Sure it has a bar there and a covered pool table, but it hasn't been used it a long time, same as the fire places. When I asked about the heat, he said they hadn't had the heating served yet as it was unseasonably cold for October. Really? This is Vermont right? He said they were getting it done in November. Remember this, its the first of many lies from the owner. No one who lives in New England waits until November to have their heat serviced, especially if your business depends on comfortable guests!!!! Oh, lets get the other lie out there, while we out, someone went into our room and turn the heat off! I ask the manager who did it and why. He says housekeeping (theres only one other woman besides him who works there), so I ask if she did it, why didn't she make the beds? He's says its not financially feasible to keep the heat on while people are away... Huh, here I was thinking it was my room I'd paid for. So now my wife and I have to keep our shoes and coats on and wrap bed comforters around us until the heat catches up cause again, 1st floor isn't heated. Oh yeah, frozen waffles for breakfast and wear your jackets. They have toast and cereal. They also put an envelope in your room asking for tips! It says on it that tipping brings good karma! Even tho our beds were never made an no fresh towels were ever brought! So look elsewhere.
"Budget accommodations in beautiful Vermont"
10/10/14 Maiga_Milbourne Philadelphia, PA
I've run some yoga retreats across the street at Good Commons. One sold out so I booked a room for my husband and myself at Salt Ash, given the proximity. As the owners wrote in response to some of the comments, they're trying to offer something affordable. Also, as they wrote or you can easily determine, the economy in Plymouth has been hard hit. The floods a few years back also made an impact. I think they're fighting an up hill battle. Know that they're trying to offer something affordable to travelers. As the other reviewers wrote, it's not easy to get a hold of someone at Salt Ash. Email is best but allot a bit of a response time. The only staff member I saw when I visited was a cleaning person one afternoon. My key was left with a note. It would be great if a staff person could be more readily available to guests-- to answer questions, orient, etc. Again, the price is lower than surrounding establishments so it does make sense that part of the savings is due to not having a staff member on premises. As the owner wrote, the restaurant is open only seasonally. You definitely need a car, but if you have one, you can get to restaurants pretty easily. I hope that the economy shifts in Plymouth. Salt Ash could be great with some updates but I get that it's hard when money is tight. Replacing some beds and mattresses, maybe even having less furniture to make rooms open and airy, updating bedding, updating towels would make a big difference. Some people love no fuss and to be in a beautiful, natural setting. You absolutely get that at Salt Ash!
"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!
