This place is a mess! First of all, we checked in a little later (930 p.m) as we were staying while our furnace was being fixed, (no heat for 48 hrs. until parts came and furnace fixed.) The gentleman at the desk was rude and obviously upset, as he said we interrupted his t.v. time. The room smelled awful when... More

We stayed here for work reasons.. NEVER again. No clean towels, room was never cleaned, we took our own trash out. First day we asked why nothing was done, they informed us since we were there for the week they don't clean the rooms. Are you kidding me??

We needed a place to stay in the area and decided to the the Rainbow. It was fine for a budget choice. The let us cancel our second night reservation after we arrived, which was nice. The managers were friendly and helpful. The in-room coffee wasn't great but there was a coffee cabin just down the road.

My husband and I got to Burlington on a Saturday evening; the Rainbow Motel had the only vacancy in town. We were very pleased with this quaint little motel. The room smelled good, and the beds were clean with crisp white linens. The bathroom was clean, which I was impressed with because I'm a stickler for clean grout and caulk.... More

We have come from Iowa to the Jimmy Buffett concert at Alpine Valley for over 20 years - we discovered this little gem about 5 years ago and will not go back to any of the other hotels we have stayed at in the past!! The couple that owns/operates the hotel are the nicest and most accomodating people that I... More

This place was priced right since we wanted to stay out another night on the road but it was ehh for the most part. Bed was hard, rooms were dated but fine. Bathroom was small, old, and dated. Did have a fridge. Coffee was terrible. Wolfgang Puck must not really care what he puts his name to. No ice machine,... More

I have stayed at the Rainbow Motel at least fifty times over the past three years (when I work a few days or nights in a row at the local hospital), and it has always been clean and comfortable. I have NO complaints. I have never seen a bug. (I suspect that negative reviews were actually posted by representatives of... More

I stopped at the Rainbow Motel in Burlington while on a bicycle tour. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable, just what I needed. Being close to the very interesting Burlington downtown beat the asphalt jungle along a freeway anytime.
