My wife and I decided on a last minute mini ski vacation to Vermont. We had Okemo ski area on our sights but where to stay? The list of BnBs in Ludlow as well as the surrounding area is pretty extensive (and somewhat expensive). We opted for the Best Western. This Best Western is a no-frills hotel. We had a nice comfortable and clean room that had a microwave (we made popcorn) and a mini-fridge. With our room, we got the ski package which included lift tickets for Okemo at a slightly discounted price. The front desk will present you with a voucher upon check-in and it is redeemable (only done 1 time) at Okemo for the appropriate number of days lift ticket). Each morning, a semi-buffet breakfast is served in a room attached to the main lobby. It is nothing special but a nice way to start the day. Expect a waffle machine, yogurt, fruit, cereal, oatmeal, as well as coffee, tea, and hot chocolate as well as a couple of juices. The breakfast is what really keeps me from giving the hotel a 5th star. Unfortunately, the breakfast room (if cleaned) was not cleaned very well each day. The tables were sticky (probably due to spilled syrup) and the counters very similar. Though we didn't use it, there was also a fitness center in a separate building as well as a pool (summer months only) on the property. The staff was very nice and each day, our room was cleaned and our bed made nicely. We were told for future stays to request to stay in the Brick House. Apparently, it is an accompanying building on the property that is a "mini" house that is much homier and nicer than the standard rooms and costs the same to stay. I would stay again here, what I enjoyed the most was the location at the end of town. After skiing, it was very easy (and scenic) to just walk up the main street (stop on the bridge over the stream to get a beautiful mountain view) and go to any restaurant. I do hope the BW takes a more aggressive approach to their sanitary habits regarding the breakfast room in the future so I can give them the 5th "star."
