This is the best property we have been fortunate to stay in on our cross country trip. We are a military family and have made several cross country road trips. You never know what you will get when you are on the road and picking something on the way. This hotel is gorgeous clean and on amazing expanse of green... More

While on vacation, most lodgings for us are really just a place to sleep after we've spent the day doing outside things. We actually enjoyed spending a bit more time on the premises after other plans fell through. The rooms were spacious and the grounds immaculate. We had a balcony that got great sun in the afternoon and decent view.... More

I understand that the Inn is way out in the country, but the musty, smokey smell of Rm. 210 was a lot to deal with. We had to keep the slider open and the AC on to keep the room airy. The bathroom was not well lit and horrible water pressure. HOWEVER, I realize we are way north in VT... More

I hate to sound like a snob, but the inn was just ehhhh OK. The staff was super friendly and the grounds and outside is super well maintained. The rooms are a bit dated but clean. Price seemed a bit high for a 70s style motel/hotel like feel.

I was there for a few days while in the area. The hotel was clean and the people at the front desk were helpful and friendly. I did not get to the pool. I don't remember seeing it. The hotel was central to Saint Jonsbury and that was convenient.

We took the opportunity to explore the Kingdom Trails for the first time, rather on the spur of the moment. Booking a hotel on a Friday, to stay the following night can often be tricky especially in July, so we did not have a huge amount of choice, but I'm happy to say the Fairbanks more than did the job,...

I've reviewed this before - nice Inn good rooms, balconies, comfortable beds, frigs, microwaves. And not only good for families, but they also welcome dogs (ask when you call to book) Their pretty pool is great, ringed with gardens , heated but refreshing, but you may have no clue, unless you ask.

We stayed here while heading to Canada for a fishing trip. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were decent and the facilities were serviceable. There was morning coffee in the lobby and a decent computer for guest use in the lobby as well. Not luxury but affordable and nice for a stopover.

Small town hotels are never this good. The staff is efficient, accommodating, and friendly. Just passing through, but I can't imagine a better hotel in this area. Reasonably priced, excellent value. Amenities include refrigerator, microwave, and a nice full size pool area.

While trying to say something nice about this place, I wouldn't pay half the price to come back. In the end, it is ok. Nothing special about the rooms, maybe even a bit tired.
