You're not paying for the room. This is an old hotel. The lobby, staircase, etc. retain some of the grandeur of yesteryear but the rooms don't reflect that, and in some ways are a bit shabby. I stayed in the second most expensive room (Queen, with mountain view) at $120 a night. The room was clean, nice TV, etc. but very basic, especially the bathroom. In your normal travels you'd expect to pay about $60 for this room. The mountain view was nice but the windows were dirty which detracted a bit.
But the pluses outweighed all this. First, this is the only hotel downtown, which means you can park your car and leave it. Brattleboro is a beutiful town and almost everything of interest was within five blocks or so. Restaurants, co-ops, brewpubs, sporting equipment, and entertain is all right there, including the movie theatre in the hotel. Probably the best part of this hotel, however, is their staff. Without exception everyone made me feel like a celebrity guest. For example, when I notfied the front desk of my late arrival they offered to have dinner from a local restaurant waiting for me. All my interactions with them left me feeling good. Their complementary breakfast is standard but the elegant dining room overlooking the street is anything but.
To sum it up, the minor downsides are entirely accurate but I would stay there again in a second.
