We took advantage of a Living Social deal and booked a night at the Equinox. The room was half it's usual cost. When we called to book, the nice lady advised us that we should reserve a room with a king size bed. We agreed and added the $20.00 additional cost. On check-in day, we were told we would be in the "Town Houses" and not the Inn and that there were no king beds available. It was disappointing, but we took it. The building was out back; a two story row of rooms. The entrance hall was very dirty, our room was less than clean and not very "historic" in decor. The porch was covered in cobwebs and dirt, with a broken chair and an old towel tossed over the shrubs - overrun with tall weeds. Our neighbors had a large dog in their room and it barked every time a door opened. There was no coffee maker in our room; but one could walk over to the rear of the Inn and find free coffee set up. It appears that the property is running on its historic relationship with the Lincoln and Orvis families and is paying little attention to maintaining its infrastructure. When we checked out, we discovered our bill included the $20.00 fee for a king bed that was "unavailable". It took the desk clerk three tries to correct the error. If you are considering a visit to the Manchester, Vermont, area be advised that the area is very expensive; our dinner meal was almost $100 with no drinks. You will get more sleep and value staying at any of the motels in the area.
