“ok hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2007

I stayed at this hotel with my husband and young daughter. My parents were in a seperate room as well. It was in a great location for walking around and discovering downtown Brattleboro. There are many great shops, and a really great co-op store for food/drinks right around the corner. The hotel is older, so you hear alot of traffic in the halls, and the doors seem to slam, but the rooms are kept up. I did notice that there were ants in my room, but my parents didn't have this problem. The breakfast in the morning was really nice. They had a really great assortment of things from great bagels, to muffins etc. The desk clearks were very pleasant, and helpful when we asked them local questions. Overall it was an ok hotel. Not luxury, but sufficient for an overnight.

We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Latchis Hotel. Admittedly, with the limitations of its 1938 design, the Latchis Hotel won't be for everyone. However, we thoroughly enjoyed the historic nature of this hotel, its authentic art deco decor, comfortable and elegant rooms (even if designed for the standards of the 1930's), a surrounding downtown area that is vibrant and real without being boutiqued to death, and a great base from which to explored southeastern Vermont. But, the best part of our stay was the hotel staff. They went well out of their way to respond to our every request. We plan to return. What more can I say?

  • Liked — The hotel staff. The bed was great, too.
  • Disliked — The air conditioning was too cold and not easily adjusted.

The only way to describe this hotel is to think of your freshman dorm in college. This is a bare bones hotel. The hotel should be called "Latchis dorms" since the rooms are as small a dorm rooms made with cinder block. The doors are flimsy wooden structures that still require an old fashioned key to open. Unfortunately, the key feature makes for a loud entry and exit as you hear other hotel customers come and go! Also, the flash back of a dorm like experience is clearly apparent when you share a hotel cooridor with in-house staff--in this case, the resident housekeeper et al. This wasn't a professional operation. It felt more like I was temporarily residing with the resident floor RA and her family.

The hotel also lacks security features like a standard peep hole in the door and front desk staff between 8pm-9am.

The hotel offers a free breakfast with the worst coffee I ever tasted in the east coast!

I'd only advise people to stayover on an overnight trip. Otherwise,
enjoy one the downtown B&Bs or rent a cabin!

  • Liked — location (downtown Brattleboro)

We stayed one night in this historic hotel one block from the Connecticut River and in the heart of downtown Brattleboro, near restaurants and bars. It is not fancy but was very comfortable and clean and service was good. We asked for a room at the back and it was quiet. One odd thing, there were no screens on the windows, but bugs were not a problem. Breakfast (included) was good enough. We had some trouble with the wireless internet, maybe because we have Macs. Also they don't have quite enough parking because non-guests use their spaces and they don't enforce (we arrived late, after movies had begun at the theatre next door). I would stay there again.

Well, after reading the last review we decided to head into Brattleboro for the evening. We came down from Burlington, Vermont on our way back to RI.

The front desk staff was very polite and accomodating at this funky/retro hotel. We were offered a large room which was clean and neat. We were pleased to see a refrigerator in the room. Since we literally walked in off the street the full bed wasn't quite large enough for us and consequently was uncomfortable. Too soft a mattress for us. We toughed it out though.

We ventured off to see the bridge in town and decided to get a drink at the bar upstairs that overlooks the Conneticut River. Later we ate dinner in town and then were thrilled to have gone to the Latchis Theater which has been restored to it's glory. Even if you don't see a movie, you must see the inside of this theater. There are plans to restore the marque outside the theater as well. If that isn't your cup of tea then consider having a beer at the bar/microbrewery contained within the same building on the corner street. It looks like a great place.

The town itself was clean but the buildings due to there age look little likethey could use a powerwash. However, we found the entire town it to be very interesting, artsy and laid back.

There were multiple bookstores, which we loved to romp around in. The Food-Coop offers some spendid dishes that you can either eat in there cafe area or take it to go.

A simple breakfast was offered where you can have a small yogurt, juice, coffee, tea or toast/muffin.

We would stay here again but in a room with a queen sized bed.

This was a really interesting place to spend a night. The hotel is quirky and full of character, complete with an old-fashioned elevator. Their continental breakfast was actually quite good with yogurt, juices, and an outstanding danish. We had a wonderful evening at the bar/microbrewery downstairs. It had a great atmosphere.

The room itself wasn't oustanding. It was definitely pricey. The furniture looked a little worn out. We had a little trouble with the shower head and an extremely steamy bathroom. The walls were honestly dripping with water after a nice hot shower. But the room was large, it had a fridge (which, for us road warriors was quite nice) and the air conditioning kept us nice and cool. The view out our window was pretty great too.

Overall, for the location and the character, I would definitely stay here again.

While planning my mothers 60th High School Reunion being held in the area we came across this gem online. In fact the whole family came to the Latchis Hotel to be with our Mom and to enjoy Vermont. I could not see staying in one of the "Box" chain motels as they are always outside of town and away from anything interesting. The Latchis is a hotel with class and character, Its downtown and close to everything. You can walk to every kind of store and eatery you can think of. There is a movie theater, and a brew pub in the hotel. The brew pub had great food and some local folks make the place interesting. The theater was an Art Deco era theater and very cool. Our room was great, the view was great. The staff was great and always helpful. We liked the Latchis enough that we are planning a vacation again there next year.
