Booked this room through Expedia. We are a couple in our 60's, have traveled extensively, are courteous and respectful. I wish that the proprietor was. We arrived late in the morning and were told that check in is at 3:30. That was fine. We asked if there was a possibility that the room might be available earlier. The reply: check... More

I had been reading the reviews with a mixture of apprehension and amusement for our upcoming stay. The hotel, as many have said, is an older hotel. It is very clean, the beds were comfortable, the shower hot (pressure was a bit slow), towels were a tad thin, but did the trick, we watched about 2 minutes of TV, so... More

We stayed for one night while passing through Burlington on a road trip. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The owner is friendly and exceptionally accomodating -- I had forgotten some camera equipment in the room, and he was happy to mail it back to me! It's an amazing value for the price and I would stay here again... More

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. —His Holiness the Dalai Lama " This is the quote on the back of their key cards. Clearly the owner is not a practitioner of compassion. My friend booked the room from her phone on Expedia and booked it for two guests when... More

In all fairness it was one of the cheaper motels in the area that being said you get what you pay for. On our one night stay the door cards never worked properly the owner had to re-code twice just to get us in. We went to the pool and my girlfriend could not get in she asked the people... More

I complained to the owner about the condition and quality of the room and while I went to pick up my wife in downtown Burlington the owner moved my luggage out of the room and upon our return told me I could not stay there because I didn't like the room. He refused to refund my money yet would not... More

I spent two nights here after learning that fastidious Burlington friends often put guest overflows here. It's fine and more than acceptable for the price. Pros: A small refrigerator, comfortable bed, friendly (if laconic) management, clean room, excellent restaurant next door. Cons: The bathroom, by US standards, is beyond tiny. I'm not voluminous so it suited me, but if you... More

I booked a room with Expedia at this motel on June 29 and after all the information was received, Expedia showed that the room could be cancelled on June 28! Expedia would not cancel the reservation unless I pay $169 even more than a month before our arrival. Awful! Expedia is hand-in-hand with the owner of this cheap motel! I... More

Okay, call me a slow learner but we booked the G.G.T. Tibet Inn (through Expedia) then read the Trip Advisor reviews. If I had read the reviews first, I may have decided not to book a room in this hotel. It seems some visitors have had a "not-too-stellar" experience from the owner, Mr. Tsang. Armed with these negative comments, we... More

We were made to feel very uncomfortable during our stay... When we arrived at our room on the second night we found ourselves locked out of our room. When we went down to the front desk, the owner accused us of smoking in our room and said he'd prefer it if we left despite our night already being payed for... More
