Not sure when Mike and Meagan took on this new adventure in life, but they're doing a great job! Both very friendly and helpful, I'm certain they'll have fun with this new career. Stayed here a few years ago, many new improvements, new carpet in room, tile in entry, all tile bath, flat screen tv's, fitted sheets, nice size bath... More

This was the absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was filthy and smelled like smoke, there were lights that didn't work, there was no toilet paper, no one came to make the beds or tidy up the room during our stay, and all we could hear was children yelling and screaming. I felt like a $10.00... More

Came here with my girlfriend for the weekend. Rooms look alot better from our last stay. The room was clean,nice flat screen tv,and new shower. The pizza at the resturant next door is a plus.

When we drove up last week, we saw the sign "Under New Management." Obviously there have been problems, and hopefully, they can work them out. There was not even a mattress pad on the bed. no curtain on the window in the bathroom, and burned out lightbulbs. The lady at the desk was very friendly.

Motel should be shut down. The new manager is dealing with a severe pregnancy crisis, but instead of taking care of business--ie getting someone else or cancelling reservations, guests are left to muddle along with a marginally clean rooms with literarly no service. Just spent four nights, and rooms were never cleaned, trash was never picked up, towels never changed.... More

My list of quality complaints is extensive, may be new owners but if so they are over their heads. Wifi doesn't work in rooms, towels stuffed in bathroom window as a curtain, bathroom door doesn't close, smelly trash barrel and flies outside door, outside lights etc. never cleaned, stains on quilt, this motel no better than 1 star at best....

My husband and I stayed one night this past weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the recently renovated room. Don't expect a Hilton, but our room and bathroom were clean and updated with all of the necessary amenities. The inn-keeper is extremely nice and trusting, as she left an envelope on the desk with our keys since we arrived late... More

The property is an older traditional motel. The rooms are clean (although we did find a pair of underpants belonging to the previous guest hanging on the back of the bathroom door), have very few amenities, and very basic decoration. We did have a refrigerator in our room and there is cable television and a phone in the room (Cell... More

This place is run by a family, which go out of their way to help you. There aren't too many places to eat, unless you drive 20 minutes to Brattleboro, but it didn't bother us. The rooms are normal sized, and very clean. There wasn't any smell in the room, and the owners decorate the rooms in a very basic,... More
