We had no hotel reservations and called because one of the locals said this is a good place to stay. The person at the desk said they had no vacancies so we continued our search to no avail, so we decided to continue our search. We then decided to go there to see if they knew of any other hotels...

I am writing this to try to save other people the aggravation I went through. I booked this motel by the pictures I saw on line. They made it look nice and clean. When I arrived the receptionist was pleasant and helpful. I then got to my room and it was nothing like I saw in the pictures. The room... More

We have stayed at the Colonial twice on different occasions. The rooms have been clean and quiet and the first time we were in a HUGE room--easily half the size of my house---and the second in a smaller but still nice room. For us it is a good half way stop if leaving for Boston in the afternoon. Since Brattleboro... More

Stayed here for one night, it's not the Marriott but the other local hotels with better ratings were full. The management pictures on tripadvisor do it much more than justice, more like poetic license / best side. On the plus side the room was clean, the bed comfortable, far enough off the road for quite and the tv worked. Looks... More

We found this hotel in Brattleboro, Vermont while attending a school reunion in Putney, VT. We found it charming as well as reasonably priced. The front desk service was extremely friendly and hospitable. We would recommend this to any of our friends or family and plan on staying again.

Dining was not an option opened at 5.00 and closed at 9.00. Advertising pictures very misleading. Bar not open and quaint NeW England Inn not experienced. Overall poor . Would not recommend. Is not a spa. No treatments available other than outside massage.

I followed suggestions given here and got nowhere. I asked for a new or renovated room.They agreed when I called ahead but on arrival told me there are no renovated rooms or updated sections. Desk associate said instead that every room has been upgraded (meaning 'fixed') since new owners took over a year ago. Ton of work has been done... More

They offered 3 different king size accommodations. We took the one in the middle and we're put on the second floor. Hated dragging all out stuff to the second floor when all the cheap rooms you drove up to the door. We enjoyed our stay and would come again.

The service is very pleasant but the rooms are old and dingy. My teenage kids could not use the hot tub even with me in it with them. The pool lanes are lap lanes and full of locals. Measly little continental breakfast. Not bad but not good overall….
