No pool. No shampoo. No conditioner. No hair dryer. No lotion. At $48 per night in an office park location—no problem. At $96…..uh…..NO! Yes, that’s the difference in price that we paid on 2 different nights…one being a Thursday and one a Friday night before a VT football game.

We’re big fans of European compact design (think IKEA) of Microtel rooms. Granted, it’s hard to get around another person in the room but you aren’t in the room much, anyway. Although all the rooms have “no smoking” signs on the doors, ours was clearly a smoking room at some point because there were multiple yellow “burn” marks from cigarettes on the bedroom furniture and the bathroom counter solid surface material. These can be easily rubbed out….c’mon people! However, the room did not reek of any smoke (and we are extremely sensitive to it) for which we were grateful. Halls were generally clean with some evidence of wear and tear in carpeting, etc. The rusted metal tissue box cover in the bathroom was a major eyesore….such an easy fix. Again, a great place at/about $50 per night.

The lobby is utilitarian, but clean, and it serves as the area for the continental breakfast—cereal, donuts, bagels, yogurt, juice, coffee. Staff is efficient and friendly. We only had coffee as we love “Our Daily Bread” and any chance to go there (which ain’t often since we live 6 hours away).

Accommodations choices are slim and expensive in the area on football weekends. If you’ve got a VT student, pick a non-football weekend or weekday to visit your scholar for the least expensive options. If you’re paying out-of-state tuition, your pocketbook will thank you…..

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side face a highway (noise) so if you need quiet, ask for a room on the front side...

Requested non-smoking rooms. Res guy assured me you couldn't smell smoke in rooms! Wrong!!! At least on 3rd floor. Smell in hall was obnoxious. King room extremely small. Couldn't hardly breathe in room because of smoke smell. Plus there were burns in the seat fabric so people have smoked in the room.

The only reason this gets average is because after expressing much dissatisfaction with front desk, they moved us to first floor after I commented 1st floor smelled much better. Only floor totally no smoking. This room, a double, was much nicer.

Location was fine. Breakfast was as expected. Staff was very pleasant.

Bottom line, if smoke bothers you, don't stay here unless you can stay on first floor.

Found out they have smoking rooms on the ends of floor two and three.

Room Tip: 1st floor if you want true no-smoking
