Room was average until we turned the bed down. Sheet had hair on it and was very thin, I couldn't get anybody on phone so I went to office, she went to get us another set of sheets, never offered to come and put them on or say they were sorry about it. Room was quite and bed was ok,... More

Just a small family run motel, ideal for overnight stayovers but that is about it. Just off the small highway but road noise was at a minimum. Really can beat the price.It isn't fancy--but it is economical and clean.

We were happy to get a room here on a busy summer Saturday night and it definitely lived up to the good reviews. Room was clean and nicely decorated, all up to date bathroom fixtures and nice firm beds. Sorry I didn't snap a photo, because it really was charming. We were over on that side of the state for...

We stayed at the Swanton Motel on the way to and from Montreal. It isn't fancy--but it is economical and clean. We really liked it. It has been renovated fairly recently--nice decor in the rooms. Takes me back to the motels where our family used to stay on trips when I was little. Would stay there again.

We stayed at this motel for two nights on the way back and forth to Montreal. It is a 1950's-style motel that was recently renovated including all new bathroom fixtures. It is family run. It was clean and the only difficulty was that on first night, the shower pull didn't work properly and we couldn't adjust the water temperature. The... More

I derived from past reviews that cleanliness is nearly an obsession here. I've been to very clean accommodations, and I wondered what could make the Swanton motel's cleanliness so notable. The question was quickly answered. I've never before seen a housekeeper on hands and knees scrubbing stains off the outside walkway. The same housekeeper then ran a sort of industrial-size... More

When you book an economy motel, you are prepared for surprises. But, at Swanton Motel, there were none. Quite the contrary. We had to overnight near North Hero for a winter festival (Great Ice) and there are practically no hotels open in the winter. We took the suggestion of a local, checked out the positive internet comments, and booked. Swanton... More

We just bought a house down the road from this charming roadside "motel" and were very happy we chose it instead of a more boring chain motel in St. Albans nearby. The décor clearly shows a great deal of pride to it. The gardens by the outdoor pool are impeccably maintained and the room was absolutely spotless which is very... More

The older bathrooms are on their way out! We have remodeled four of them down to and including the tile and replacing the drop ceilings with a nice painted dry wall. More

I've had the pleasure of staying at Swanton Motel twice in the last year and half. Once for two nights in October and once for two nights in June ... both visits were exceptional. Shelly and her family run a great motel that places an emphasis on cleanliness and customer service. The rooms are spotless, crisp looking, and odor free.... More

Though I was immediately offered a 10% discount on the $100/night rate (8-26-12) for riding a bike, my budget had not included a room for this night, anticipating staying with a friend. However, after going up the road and seeing what was available for $60/night, I turned around and went back! Nolan was pleasant and welcoming, though I had now... More

The spray from the shower head should be better now and temperature fluctuations less. We've replaced the pipes to the south half of the motel with larger sizes to allow more flow and making changes to the hot water system to address issues that were also contributing to temperature fluctuations.
