A great place to take my family for their first Jay experience, the staff was accomodating, and having a common area downstairs by the fire was a perfect setting. The restaurant got a little (a lot) busy around dinner but that wasn't surprising when we did find a table and enjoyed a delicious meal (try the fresh seafood or the slow-roasted ribs). Overall it was a great experience, I won't go anywhere else as long as there's snow.
Service, I think someone should have a seminar for the employees at Jay Village Inn to let them know what the word "service" means. Lets see, it doesn't mean have no one at the front desk...ever, or have two towels in the room for 4 days. Everyone was rude, with the exception of one waitress. Our room wasnt ready when we got there, we waited over an hour...The restaurant was overpriced, the shower was tiny and the water went from hot to cold to hot to cold, so dont expect a relaxing shower.
Make sure you dont book on the low price end, or your room will be a closet, literally. We weren't allowed to bring any skis or boards inside the inn....kinda ridiculous considering its a ski hotel...you'd figure you'd be able to..I know, baffled me too...
All in all, I give everything accept the room a ZERO, the room was sized well, but the bed was old, and caving in the middle...no toilet paper holder, two towels, one tiny trash bag, it was just an awful experience. Thanks Jay Village Inn.
Pro- the room was cute looking.
-the average price for an entree is $20 so be prepared to spend a little, but their appetizers are very big. However, the food is really great.
-You are ignored pretty much your whole meal and completely forgotten about.
-the breakfast voucher is a waste of time, go somewhere else if you are looking foward to a nice inn type breakfast.
-don't look foward to finding anybody to assist you, if you walk downstairs to find someone you won't be able to. they don't answer page button.
-the bar doesn't close till 11, so you can hear the people and the loud music from downstairs in your room.
-you have a nice view of the mountain but also a sunoco.
we think there are better places in the area for the amount you are paying.
What a terrific stay. Very relaxing, very vermont. Our room was what you would expect in a country inn...a little small, but nice. We had wonderful meals by the fireplace, check out JR's specials! The bar is quite nice as well. This place is a little different, but so is the area. I just loved it. Second, but not my last stay.
The Jay Village Inn, and the area, is a wonderful place to visit. OK so things happen at a little different pace here, but soon you realize thats alright. Our room was a bit small, maybe even a little noisy once, but I (we) absolutely love this place. The inn is very charming, the food is great, and the snow has to be the best in the east.
The nice little inn has clearly been rennovated, only they haven't finished and the following are missing:
1) No toilet paper holder
2) No towel rack in back room
3) No vanity/top to place toiletries in batchroom
4) No closet to hang clothes - although there were two hooks behing the door
and all the above for US$179/night.
Considered high price for product provided.
Matt, the caretaker there was more than helpfull in making my daughters first skiing and lodge experience a total success. we were delighted with the accomodations,the food and close proximity to Jay Peak. We are planning on returning for the same holiday wekend in January for this season.
My husband and I had a fabulous and nostalgic trip to Jay. It had been several years since our last visit (his family used to own a chalet in the area).
We spent our first night at Hotel Jay (Jay Peak). While the view was fabulous, the hotel condition wasn't. We were quite disappointed with our stay at Hotel Jay. We then went on to Jay Village Inn and were most impressed. Matt, the Innkeeper, was laid-back, hospitable and welcoming. We had a fabulous stay. The food at the inn was super and inexpensive (try their fantastic thin-crust pizza). We were treated like "family" but were also allowed our privacy. We would definitely recommend a stay at Jay Village Inn. We look forward to our next trip.
A great place. The rooms look as if they were old Italy, but obviously are new. The food was great and well priced. A small bar with a huge fiedstone fireplace and cozy leather sofas complete the picture...can't wait to go back.
