This motel has been around for decades. It is well-maintained. Handy to everything. Room was great. Everything worked just fine. Had a rustic feel to the place which is good. Staff is friendly and attentive. Will definitely return next time I'm in the area.
The air conditioner kept turning off. You need to have an electrician check the power. Something is fluctuating causing the breaker to turn off. One time the unit was not turned on and the breaker still opened. 2. You need to fumigate your rooms. I found a tick crawling across the bathroom floor. 3. You need to change your beds. The one in room 108 is a board. 4. Vacuum under the furniture every once in a while, layers and layers of dust. Look under the couch. There is a toy Easter egg. It has been at least two weeks.
Neat small town location, on Vermont/New York border; an old time motel that has been nicely updated, but maintains the past. Friendly owner and comfortable quiet room and location. As it was Saturday evening, we located a Catholic Church, and enjoyed Mass on Sunday morning. Will return, when we travel north and east.
A comfortable stay in a very dated, yet clean mom and pop motel. The room has all of the amenities: tv, dvd player, microwave, fridge, hair blower. Furniture is old. Carpet is old. Curtains and blinds are old. A bit of a facelift would do wonders. Slept well!
My Amtrak train trip ended with a bus ride to get around track strewn with trees from a storm. Fated to reach my car at St. Albans' train station at midnight, I found the Swanton Motel as a relatively inexpensive option. The reviews on TripAdvisor reassured me that this family-owned motel would be clean, quiet, and comfortable. I arranged to get in late after the office closed with one of the staff. Simple but far better appointed than most motels of this vintage, I was very pleased. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Large clean renovated bathroom with lovely hot shower at the end of trip. It was very helpful to be able to brew a Keurig cup of coffee in the morning, although like all Keurig devices, the picture instructions on the coffee maker omitted a couple key points. It would be helpful if the motel supplemented the instructions with a printed sheet of some kind. Other than the first more obvious step of turning on the power button, it helps to know that *firmly* closing the top where you put in water turns on the brew cycle. Overall, I give this motel high marks as it is a reasonable option with all one really needs in an area full of higher-priced options. I liked that it was not a corporate change and clearly loved by its owners.…
