I stayed here while I was attending a conference at UVM. I ended up choosing this hotel because I was staying with friends who booked it and the rates here were about $40 lower than the next cheapest. Overall, the stay was comfortable enough, but the negatives of this place far outweigh the positives. So that leads into the only... More

After years of travel I can easily say this was the most disgusting hotel I have ever had the misfortune of staying at. We stayed there because every other hotel we tried was booked for UVM parent's weekend. Hard to list everything wrong: filthy - looks like the bedding is never washed, and the maids never cleaned our rooms during... More

barely. I stayed in this hotel because of a very early flight out of Burlington. This hotel has NO amenities, but a cooperative shuttle service was available. You check in at the motel next door and board the shuttle there also. The room was clean and there was a television set--period. Good for a short, cheap overnight stay.

Just a tip to anyone booking at this location. The building is being torn down toward the end of the year and I was told by the front desk staff, that some things have already been removed from the rooms, such as fridge & microwave, and that the indoor pool and hot tub are already out of service. So plan... More

I stayed here for two nights in July and I will never go back again. First there are bed bugs! I informed the staff and their response was to take $20 off the $190 bill. Not worth it. The walls were damp and were starting to mold and the hallways reeked of smoke. Don't stay here!

Pros Big rooms. Ours had a sink in the bathroom and one just outside. Fridge & microwave. Sofa. Sliding glass door leads to a small balcony or patio Reception is somewhat responsive. Seems to have been a nice solid place once. Shuttle to hospital and airport but not train station (our destination). Lots of tv channels. We were hoping for... More

This is the most filthy place I've ever been to. The entire place smells like stale cigarette smoke. When I examined the bed sheets I found hairs and crumbs in it. The floor is not vacuumed. Snack food was on the floor. There was hair all over the bathroom sink. At least the staff is friendly and they came and... More

Without a doubt the worst hotel experience ever! To be fair, this review is for the University Inn, but since it is managed by the Comfort Inn and Suites staff and they were the ones I was dealing with, this review is being posted on both sites. My first clue should have been the shady, creepy guy lurking in the... More
