I have stayed here before and decided to stay again for a short business trip. Based on the previous reviews I was thinking about going elsewhere, but my first experience here was good so I decided to stay again. Everything was even better the second time around. From my check in to the cleanliness of the room, the hotel seemed... More

What a pleasant surprise. This family owned motel is immaculately clean. We needed to stay in Barre VT and found this motel on-line. The room is huge. It has two double beds, a desk, an arm chair, huge TV unit that houses a microwave and small fridge. The room is decorated in rich jewel tones. The beds were super comfy... More

When I shop for a room, I know that if I spend $70 a night I'll probably get a small musty smelling motel room with outdated furniture drab carpet and a breakfast feast fit for county jail. When I spend $130 a night I expect a clean pleasant room with updated TV service a decent and a decent overall experience.... More

I stayed a couple days ago and have to say the staff here in the morning is among one of the most rudest people I think I have ever seen. The hotel was nice but needs some upgrades and if your looking for a restuarant forget it, according to the front desk clerk the resturant has been closed for over... More

If you check their website, you will find a nice hotel with a nice restaurant, lounge, pool and very clean. Well, these photos must have been taken many years ago. It is located in a great spot and may have been something years ago. Whoever now owns the property has done nothing and downgraded everything. As you try to check... More

After Hotwire assigned us this hotel, I researched it on Trip Advisor for reviews. I was immediately freaked out as I thought I had ruined our whole vacation taking a gamble on a random hotel with horrible reviews Let me mention that I am a bargain shopper by nature, so hotel costs always seem like a rip off to me,...
