A nice setting along a small river so the courtyard units have a nice view. The WiFi and TV worked well. Down hill from there. The bedside lamps did not work. The hot water can scald you. There is no plug by the desk. The small fridge hums loudly. The floor of the unit above creaks every time someone moves.... More

What a great find this hotel was! Traveling for business in VT this past week on 31 July, we arrived with no advance reservation and could not have been more pleased with this Inn! Greeted with a warm welcome, we were very pleased with the affordable, quiet, HUGE room (#214) with two very comfortable, Queen size beds. Check in was... More

We spent a week with our two kids and dog at the Inn. Everyone was so helpful and friendly--from the housekeeping staff to the manager(s) on duty. The grounds were clean and tidy. Despite the street construction going on outside, we slept well and enjoyed the ever-changing Vermont weather while out and about exploring local attractions. Would stay again!

The room was out dated and the building is obviously old, but I could not hear as much creaking as I had expected to when I first looked at the place. The grounds behind are huge, green, and beautiful The private terrace is a great touch! There were a few annoyances like holes in the screen so I couldn't leave... More

We had the opportunity to stay at this great hotel. Large rooms and comfortable beds. The pool area is very well maintained. The entire rear area is large, great to play. They even allow pets! The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Check in was a breeze, and took only a few short minutes. Restaurants are only a few minutes... More

I recently stayed at the Fairbanks Inn and was very pleased. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. I loved that there was fresh coffee in the lobby and sitting out by the pool in the morning was lovely. I would definitely stay again!

This hotel was much nicer than I expected. The rooms were very spacious and clean. You get your own private balcony with a good view. The outdoor pool was also very nice and well taken care of. And the WiFi was consistently working and fast.

Arrived Thursday late evening, but could see great views from my private balcony. The bathroom smelled a bit "off". but the room was clean and bed comfortable. Coffee/tea service available 24/7 although if you want breakfast you'd have to go elsewhere as there is no food service. Monday evening about 2100 I returned to room and the temp was about... More

This is the second time that I have stayed here and it is okay. If it was not for the location just off the highway it would not be worth the $127.34 that I paid. The decor is just ok, the room was clean, but the air conditioning very noisy. The thing that bothered me the most was that I... More
