I chose this motel because I wanted to try a non-chain, independent place. I liked it and it grew on me during my two night stay. It's is super clean and the retro look is cool, in a laidback kind of way. The pool is nice and it is very quiet. However, I would have liked to have had a... More

We spent one night here based on good reviews on tripadvisor. It was all that others said. Very clean, cordial owners/workers, reasonable price. I only wish that they supplied coffee pots in the room or coffee in the lobby. The restaurant next door didn't open until 7:30, after we've been up for at least 2 hours! I did ask ahead... More

We stayed at the T-Bird after reading the good reviews on Craigslist. I wanted to see if it was really as clean as so many reviewers said. I was really impressed. Whoever is in charge of cleaning and maintenance at this Inn should teach a class and share their understanding of how to run a GREAT hotel with very average... More

We were looking for budget accommodations for one-night on the road and read about how clean this place is. Clean is an understatement! It was shining, sparkling clean and nice. Old fashioned motel-type place in a pretty, shady setting just on the edge of Burlington. Rooms are large and comfortable and have enough amenities, including a nice, flat-screened TV. A... More

For a motor inn that's been around for decades, it's clean, comfortable and up to date. I was actually surprised when I opened the door to room 38. There was no dirt or wear and tear anywear. The room was very bright and the air conditioning worked wonders, even if it was a bit loud. The bathroom was a good... More

As someone who normally stays in luxury hotels, I wasn't sure what to expect from the T-Bird Motor Inn. We needed somewhere within walking distance of the Shelburne Museum since we were attending for a concert and this popped up on google maps. We were *so* pleasantly surprised! Nothing fancy about this hotel but it is extremely well taken care... More

Everything about our night at the T-Bird Inn was terrific. I am not a great traveler, but this experience was a very good one. We were allowed to check in early, the room (especially the bathroom) was spotless and clean. The pool was sparkling, even the grounds were beautifully landscaped. I was very impressed. The check-in and check-out staff were... More

We recently stayed at the T-Bird Motor Inn and were very pleasantly surprised. The owner was wonderful. Not only did he upgrade our room for free but he let us check in early and check out late which was greatly appreciated. It's a private and very quiet location. The room was spotless and looks brand new. Nice flat screen TV... More

This motel was an amazingly wonderful surprise. From the friendliness of the owners at check-in to the cleanliness of the rooms we had a great experience. The pool is very nice. The breakfast at the adjacent property, the windmill restaurant, was awesome. You receive a free continental breakfast ticket per person. Can't say enough nice things about here. Will definitely...

Nice friendly staff at a motel that is clearly old but well maintained and updated. The rooms are small and crowded, but having the big flat-panel TV on the wall left plenty of space for suitcases. The "free" breakfast is at a restaurant down the street and seems to consist of coffee, juice and a piece of toast. A real... More
