Let's start with the good. The bed was reasonably comfortable. Now on to the rest of it. The room was spacious but decidedly unattractive. Old, worn-looking furniture, ugly carpet (with a piece of gum stuck to it), and you get the picture--not an ounce of charm. This is Vermont, and the windows didn't open. They still had the storm windows... More

I have had better accommodations in third world countries. The condition of the room was appalling. The floors were so dirty and stained we didn't want to walk barefoot. The toilet operated intermittently. Tile was missing from the bathroom walls and there was mold and mildew. the place smelled awful. The managers knew nothing of the surrounding area, and served...

We stayed at the Ladd Brook Inn on a beautiful fall weekend in the Berkshires. Many of the motels in the area are dated, and the Ladd Brook Inn is no exception. The owners were very polite, but the motel was definitely in need of repair. We had a few spiders in our room, which we didn't appreciate. If you... More

The motel is in a beautiful setting and there is plenty of seating outside to enjoy the fall views and the tranquillity. The reception area is quaint but very welcoming and the owner dealt with our party very efficiently. The room was large and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean. The motel is along a main... More

My check in was delayed because, I was told, the prior occupant of Room 5 had not returned the key. I think they simply lost it. From my experience at this hotel, they are serious losers. Here's a list of the other things they lost - which I doubt had been taken by the prior customer:: 1-all the hardware that... More

I had a reservation through Hotels.com that I tried to change due to death in the family. Hotels.com talked with the hotel on Aug. 4th and he told me they agreed to change my reservations without a fee. Two days later my credit card was charged for the full amount. I called hotels.com and they said that I had to... More
