This is a clean, tidy motel on the highway 7 between Shelburne and Burlington VT. There is a pool, they charge a reasonable rate and have many discounts and coupons at hand for attractions in the area. Friendly staff. One thing with this motel is there was a strong smell of cleaner in the room - an orange-y kind of... More

We re-visited the T-Bird and were pleased to find it just as nice, friendly and clean as when we had stayed there 14 years ago. The pool was lovely and refreshing. The continental breakfast situation was a bit unusual- you have to go off-site to the Dutch Mill restaurant. But the coffee there was great and worth the walk. Desk... More

My husband and I stayed at the T-Bird for just one night. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was excellent. The gentleman at the desk was very friendly and helpful, seems everybody in Vermont is friendly and helpful. They don't have morning coffee in the room, or the lobby. The recommendation is to go nearby, to The... More

True, there was a cute little pool but the expectation that this would be "resort like" was wrong, wrong, wrong. The road it's on is very busy and the pricetag was a little high for a run-of-the-mill commercial strip motel. There was some sort of odd campground next door and the "continental breakfast" restaurant was a fair hike, but we... More

We stayed here by chance one evening after driving by and being attracted to the shiny clean windows and inviting lighting. Used to Marriots and Hilton's when traveling we were a bit skeptical. The front desk clerk was very engaging, we asked to look at a room, he gave us keys to 2 rooms, one in the front and another... More

Spent 2 nights at the TBird, and expected more. No coffee in the room or in the lobby. You have to walk next door to the restaurant to get a cup of coffee (which is also where the 'Continental Breakfast' is located, consisting of toast. Hardly any amenities in the bathroom, a tiny bottle of shampoo not big enough for... More

I stayed here on a recent visit to Shelbure. I was visiting the museum and other area attractions. The hotel is located in a very convenient location and staff was nice when we arrived. I was disappointed because I was supposed to get two rooms with two queen size beds. Instead I got one room with two twin beds and... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. EXTREMELY clean. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We were in the area for the fall colors and the shelbourne museum. We dinned in Burlington and shopped around for gifts. We would go out of our way to stay here again and will on our way to Canada. If you are ever in... More

This motor Inn is right on the road- loud semi trucks all day and all night. After the first night we bought earplugs! and we had the windows closed tight! Also, It must have been where we were situated but the plumbing was extremely loud- it sounded like everyone was showering in our bathroom- noisy high pitched water pipes. We... More

The T-Bird is classic strip motel of the old-fashioned sort, with each rooms opening directly out onto a parking space. Furnishings and amenities are basic rather than luxurious, but I'm giving it a top rating because the owners take such good care of the place and treat their guests so well. The rooms are extraordinarily clean and all of the... More
