We stumbled upon the motel after leaving Canada late. We checked in at around 10pm and opened the room to be welcomed by a lovely fresh clean room with sparkling bathroom. The Wi-Fi was excellent too. I suspect the rooms have been recently renovated because the sign outside betrays the quality of the interiors. I will happily return.

We were on a motorcycle trip (5 men) and needed rooms for Friday & sat. nights, 8/14 & 8/15/15. We rented on phone site unseen as this was only place in the area with openings. Myself, my brother and his son rented a two bedroom suite for $292.00 for the two days. The place was relatively clean, had some food... More

The Swanton Motel is a basic, classic motel. The rooms were clean and had in room coffee service 9with Wolfgang Puck coffee), microwaves and a fridge, plus a high capacity ice machine available. There was free wifi, but is was slower than the cell service. This is very much a budget motel and a great value. About 1 mile from... More

Nothing fancy here. But you get clean sheets and the remodeled Bathrooms are decent. I little skimpy with the number of towels given. They should consider replacing the matteresses as they are hard as a rock.

Motelman_12, Owner at Swanton Motel, responded to this review

We stock two large bath towels (larger than average family motels), two hand towels, and two face clothes in each of our single and double rooms. If more than two persons check in for the room we issue additional towels. The suites are stocked with four towels each but more are issued if more than 4 persons check-in. We also... More

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

We suspect this is for another motel/hotel in the area as we have not had a complaint of hair to which we responded - and would have changed the sheets had that happened. More

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
