Being that Burlington is a very pricey state, I guess the $70 it cost for a basic room for the night was acceptable, especially since it was within walking distance of the Greyhound station at the airport, and there was a good restaurant right across the street. The bed was comfortable, the shower had hot water, and by and large... More

receptionist is very nice and chatty. However, the WIFI there doesn't work. The heating system is rudimental. If you're on a budget, this will do; if you are looking for nice vacation, look somewhere else. Downtown is accessible by bus and its like 40mns of commute.

The owners were the sweetest people, very helpful with directions and suggestions of places to dine and visit. This was our first time to Vermont and we would definitely go back and stay at this place. We walked to the diner for breakfast, we walked across the street for snacks, it was perfect. But if you are looking for fancy... More

We arrived in Burlington at night on 9/27/14, to find all motels/hotels full. We pulled into Ho Hum and were told this was the last room. It wasn't because later another person was able to get a room. The room that we stayed in was hot, thank god the A/C was working. Music was played loud until 12 midnight. The... More

If you are staying over night because of an early morning flight, this hotel has the perfect location right by the air port. But that's about it. It's shabby, dirty, over priced, noisy, smelly and has zero amenities. Wear your shoes as the carpet is really well worn, the AC didn't work, no coffee maker, hair dryer or anything else... More

Air conditioner is so great. Modern places don't compare. I like it 60 degrees. Room for all of those great memories from the past. You have always heard of this. Thanks for being so thoughtful! As Foreigner said "I thought you were out of what is great!" Thanks again and I will be back later!

My family and I stayed here for a night. The location is good since it's about 5 minutes away from University mall and there are many restaurants/diners around. The receptionist was also friendly. However, our room wasn't the best. There was a strange smell that just would not go away, the AC didn't work very well and the wifi didn't... More

Read the reviews in T.A. Called and reserved a room with William and Wendy weeks before our planned stay. Booked two nights on the ends of our trip to Canada. Understood the place was not the Hilton but our two-room family suite needs some TLC (wallpaper peeling, pretty questionable plumbing, kind of lumpy bedding). We had to ask for an... More

$58 plus tax, got me two rooms, even though my ride decided not to stay. Very firm, comfortable bed, hot shower, microwave, fridge, wi-fi...It's all I needed. I had a bunch of Internet work to do, before heading to Grand Isle, and they accomodated me for a second night when my plan changed. The staff was friendly. The rooms were... More
