Spent two nights at this classic, but updated old school style motel - booked rooms here based on the reviews on this site, and was not disappointed.
Arrived a bit early, but they were just finishing cleaning my room (one facing the back, very quiet), and the maids couldn't have been nicer about it. As one of them finished up, she even wiped the molding on the OUTSIDE of the door - at what hotel do you see that kind of detail, ever?
Room was very nicely appointed, comfortable bed, HD flat screen tv, spotless and updated bathroom, windows that open, and plenty of room.
A continental breakfast is included at the Dutch Mill next door, but you can upgrade to a full breakfast for a nominal charge, and I found the restaurant to be a classic step back in time, and the food quite good. It is advisable to get over there early as the place is small and fills up quickly with locals and visitors.
You also receive a $5 discount for the Shelburne Museum, and that was very welcome. Spent a full day at the museum and brought back many memories of childhood visits.
In short, this was one of the nicest hotel experiences I've had in a long time, and can not recommend this establishment enough. Clean rooms, updated amenities, and a price that can't be beat.
