Spur of the moment led us to Hollow Inn. A room check showed us large rooms with small refrigerator, microwave and iron and a balcony. It was once an upscale property. It needs some tlc but, for the price, it was very nice. The owner was very helpful with local attractions and suggested Sarducci's which is one of the best... More

Don't stay here!!! The innkeeper was rude. There was an extra charge for a third person in the room even though we still only needed two beds. The "extensive breakfast" the advertise was hard bagels and a waffle maker. Milk and juice at breakfast had been sitting out way too long. No fruit, no proteins. The "fitness center" was a... More

The rooms are truly massive. The linen and bed were good. Plentiful scalding hot water. I liked the setting of the property. Wi-fi speed was fantastic. Overall, excellent value for money. HOWEVER, there was noise from other rooms. I think the walls are quite thin and there are interleading doors that worsen the problem. I think if you had noisy... More

Hard to describe this place, I'd say if you're staying for more than a night (maybe two) look elsewhere whereas if you're just staying the night as we did it does the job. We were on our way to Montreal but had to start late so decided to break up the drive and stay in VT. The rooms are HUGE... More

I stayed this past winter, and would stay again. Lovely large room, plenty of hot water and clean towels, large flat screen tv with cable, and wifi. The continental breakfast is better than many of the hotel chains I've stayed at. There can be some noise here when full; ask for an upstairs room if this is a problem for... More

Our room was musty and smelled bad. Lamps were missing bulbs. The door wouldn't lock properly so when we went out at night we packed our stuff and put it back in the car for safekeeping. DIdn't dare to get into the bed so we slept on top of the covers. Avoid this place.

Booked this hotel with some hesitations but couldn't be happier. Service was excellent. I.j. The inn keeper was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast in the morning was basic, nothing fancy but that's what you get for the price. We stayed in the main part of the inn and had a comfortable king size bed. Also the rooms have a small...

We stayed in Barre this weekend and had a wonderful time. This is the first time we have stayed at this Inn and we are already booked for another weekend. We had a huge room with king bed, a balcony overlooking the summer weather pool and a huge bathroom. The place was clean and quiet. We had a nice flat... More

Stayed here for a night, for business, and selected the property based on price. Got a very large room, with comfortable bed, free wifi, 27" tv and a hot shower with good water pressure. The breakfast was scant - only some bagels and pastries, but good; and the coffee was good. Very convenient location. It was quiet, warm (was very... More

Nice little Inn outside of Montpelier, VT in Barre for a family stop. Nice comfortable rooms with breakfast included. Plenty of access to pretty much everything you might want in the area. Stayed here on one of the coldest days ever (-7 degrees in December 2013) and couldn't have been a better, warmer choice!
