We stay at the Hotel Coolidge every summer when we drop our daughters off for sleepaway camp and when we pick them up. The hotel can be really disorganized with the reservations. We keep staying here because we kind of like the quirkiness of the hotel and the surrounding area. Plus the rooms are affordable and clean. This year we... More

The Hotel Coolidge is an interesting, historical place in downtown white river junction. WRJ has the feel of a rail road town after the trains stopped coming. There has been the usual old brick town attempts to bring art (galleries, knit shops, places for music) to the city but I'm not sure how well it is going. If you like... More

This old hotel was a perfect place for our first night of a week in Vermont.The town was once important as a railroad town and now it is slightly run down but charming. The hotel is the same. It is close to Hanover, New Hampshire and Woodstock, Vermont. It is a good value especially if you. like us, don't want... More

The Hotel Coolidge is a fascinating place. Built in the 1800s, Lillian Gish stayed here while filming the landmark motion picture "Way Down East", and the whole place seems encased in amber, frozen in time when things were looking up. Over the decades I would deliberately avoid the town, because it was so run down and depressing. However, recent years... More

The Coolidge is not a luxury hotel, but it certainly is lovely, rich with history, and well cared for. My family and friends stayed here while celebrating my son's recent wedding in nearby New Hampshire. We booked #204 with two conjoined rooms for four nights with my daughter and her family on one side and my husband and me on... More

There is not a lot going on in this town. I stayed here while taking cooking class at King Arthur Flour. It is very convenient. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. We did have to drive to Woodstock for a decent restaurant which is 15 miles away. The hotel is pretty cool and has a lot of... More

We loved our stay, if only for one night. We stayed in suite 202 which had adjoining rooms, king bed in room one with full bath and half bath, and couch in room two. Wish our stay could have been longer. The hotel brings to mind of the classic VT inn. Old (but not in a bad way). Creaky stairs... More

Often stay here for visits to WRJ in general and Alumni Weekends in particular. Lobby recently updated. Many activites going on in Meeting Rooms keeps the lobby full of exciting people to meet. Rooms are rather small but very comfortable. Always sleep well and enjoy my time in WRJ.

I had settled a case in Hartford, so drove up to check out Fort Ticonderoga in NY; the fort has been a beacon for my love of history since childhood. Arrived at the Hotel Coolidge in White River Junction near dark. Wonderful place! Wonderful people! Sam Chesney, late of the Merchant Marine, the MV Brenda, Brooklyn, and Dutch Guyana, manning...

As many reviewers have stated, this is an old hotel. It is not old in the charming sense, though, and seems to lean on that "historic" excuse to allow for stained bathrooms and rooms, neglected fixtures and broken...everything. Bathroom door didn't close, shower was decidedly crooked with lukewarm water, AC worked but the room is poorly sealed so it never... More

David B, Owner at Hotel Coolidge, responded to this review

We are very concerned about this review because a number of items point to the nature of not only us but our neighborhood. This village is well into a period where many aspects have been "reinvented" by the hard work and devotion by many hands-on business owners (including myself for 30 years now). I never feel the need to apologize... More
