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

Yes the price cannot be beat, and the desk people were very friendly...but it is time to do something with the rooms. Basement rooms are depressing, run down and should no longer be rented to the paying public. TV had to be unplugged to turn off, as the power button was missing and the remote didn't work except to change... More

We were on our honeymoon, exploring New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont on a fairly modest budget. We were in the Burlington area to catch up with an old friend. We initially booked in for just one night, I must admit, I had some reservations but the lady on the desk was friendly so we gave it a go! We had... More
