Room was very clean. Bed wasn't the most comfortable, but not the worst we've slept in. AC smelled like wet dog. Very quiet place, friendly staff, most reasonably priced hotel in the area. Water pressure in the shower was less than desirable but plenty of hot water

I booked this hotel because their price was attractive. I expected an old fashioned roadhouse. Was I wrong?!! These ladies have taken an older property and made into an extremely comfortable hotel, near Univ. of VT and Champlain College. My wife and I are so pleased, having migrated from a lesser hotel nearby. We will stay here for all our... More

I was one person traveling by myself. The suite was equal to a small one bedroom apartment. I could see it being very pleasant for a small family or an extended stay. Everything in the apartment was nice and clean. I appreciated the kindness and courtesy of the desk clerk as I checked in after a long drive.

I was at Handys Extended stay for 3 months. People handling this place were great, Natalia and Rudika were always available for any kind of help. The cleaners were available everyday and would regularly clean the apartment on tuesday and fridays. The place is quite and safe. There are students from St Michael college living in the apartments, but during... More

I had been there for 4 months while I was taking classes at the college which is near there. When I arrived at the first time, the staff was extremely friendly with me, once I had a bad English. The rooms are very clean and the made-service is very efficient! Furthermore, the bathroom has a lot of space to put... More

It was the weekend of the Beer Fest and all the hotels in the Burlington area were booked. The few hotels with room still available raised their prices to ridiculous amounts, taking advantage of the shortage. We spotted the Handys Extended Stay Suites and it was the best price we could find so quickly gobbled it up. We then started... More

It seems that people here at Tripadvisor are upset because they booked a room at Handys and then discovered (gasp!) that it isn't a 5-star hotel and offers no coupons, transportation service, and--god forbid--no pool. Which proves that people are basically stupid and don't do their homework before booking.. Look folks, if you want the 5-star treatment, then book a... More

There are a few good things about Handys Extended Stay - the suites are spacious, it's a short drive to the center of town and the maid in our room worked hard to keep everything clean. However, the whole place is shabby and the management has a questionable attitude to safety. The fire alarm in our bedroom had been removed... More

We booked through Hotwire. Arrived and she said "Do you really need two bedrooms?". My husband said he wasn't aware he had booked two but no we didn't. She said good, printed off some paperwork and handed it to him to sign. Um - that wasn't us. Maybe she should have asked for our names? She went back, found our... More
