“Clean, friendly staff, reasonable prices, loved the cabin!!!”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

We went here after spending the night at a much less desireable place. We stayed in a cabin and it was clean, cozy and the staff was so very friendly and helpful. It is close to my old hangout-Gus' Red Hots and it is still as good as it was 40 years ago!!!

Room Tip: I highly recommend the cabins. I didn't see the rooms but they are probably just as clean and co...

We stayed their one night on our motorcycle trip from Toronto to New Brunswick. It is very handy for the ferry across Lake Champlain. The staff was very helpful - he helped me with access to the internet to retrieve a phone number, and found a prop we needed to service my motorcycle chain. The room was small and with older fixtures, and you need to bring shampoo, but it was clean and relatively quiet. Great value.

We found the Motel on the internet and decided to give it a try from the normal chains. It was for a weekend stay.
The place is VERY CLEAN, WITH FRESH PAINT, UPDATED ROOMS, AIR WORKS GREAT, WITH A MICROWAVE AND SMALL FRIG. The STAFF IS FRIENDLY, ATTENTIVE and willing to please. Its also very close to the beach. A short SHORT Walk. I do need to point out the motel is older so the rooms are based on the old templates for motels from years gone buy. But they work!
This place makes for a great place to stay and hit the beach or the launch point for your fishing on Lake Champlain.

This motel was perfect for fishing Lake Champlain. It has everything that fisherman need: ample boat / truck parking, plenty of electrical hook ups, security cameras, a large laundry facility, fridge and microwave, wireless internet, and only 5 minutes to the boat ramp. It is an older, no frills motel run by great people. During our big tournament, they even hosted a big cookout for all the anglers. We come to Lake Champlain every couple of years to fish, and we will definitely come back.

The good..We have stayed at the Rip Van Winkle on a few occasions and from what we can see the Motel's condition has come a long ways. It is safe and the rooms are cleaner and updated and the rates are still low. The bad.. it could use a different manager, someone who is attentive to the needs of the guests and friendly would be a plus!

The place was filthy, it was cold the heat didn't work well nor did the phone or remote. Sleeping in my truck would have been better.
