I stayed for several days, and I must say that this place should be avoided at all costs. First, I made a reservation but the amount charged was not the same. The motel has no system in place, except for handwritten notes, to keep track of reservations and quoted costs. I'm not sure if the owner is trying to preserve... More

Well, on the good side, the room was clean and quiet while I was there but I did not get to stay the night as a very, rude staff member in the afternoon treated me like trash. I have a heart condition and was supposed to avoid stress. The staff member actually said that she did not care if I... More

I stayed at this motel on Shelburne Road in Shelburne, Vermont for two nights Christmas Eve until December 26th. The room including the bathroom was very clean. Check in was very efficient and the staff was extremely pleasant. This motel's owner continually requires the chambermaids to keep the rooms extremely clean and it appears they do. I recommend this motel... More

The service was very unprofessional. Once I had paid for my room I was told to wait an hour or so while the maid could clean it. I found pair of dirty panties behind the dresser after I gave the maid a $20 tip to clean the room well. The heater and towel rack were rusty and the ceiling and... More

I came into town with my girlfriend for vacation and wanted to stop early after a long day on the road. The first motel that I saw on my side of the road was the North Star motel. The location and appearance of the spot looked inviting. Even though my girlfriend and I were itching to see the scene of... More

I live in New York State and stay at the North Star Motel often for business as well as family functions. This motel is very clean, the beds are very comfortable and the staff is polite and accommodating. You cannot find a better motel in this price range within the Burlington Vermont area. I am a retired Trailways bus driver... More

Checked in walked to the room, looked around and walked out. Blood stains on the walls, mold and mildew everywhere, the smoke detector is hanging from the ceiling and it smells just terrible. The clerk refused to refund my money for the room and refused to contact management. I would rather sleep in a cardboard box. Don't even set foot... More

I have been using North Star for over 10 years now with no complaints. Shellie and the staff are wonderful and know me like family. The rooms are bare, could use a little work, but the sheets and everything else are clean. Free wifi and MORE than adequate breakfast... Why pay the high rates in Burlington when you can go... More
