When I saw the add on the Internet, I though at least the place will be nice to have a good night of sleep. First the tub drain was clogged, we inform the front desk and they not even offer another room (was myself, my husband and my two kids using the same tub!). The ac didn't work, we had to open the window to get some air. The night stand had some syrups inside the drawer (disgusted). Next time, for sure, I'll not gonna stay there!

Quoted one price on the phone.Taxes came to more and a gratuity of $4.97 is charged as a tax. What is this all about? No answer for this charge. Watch your final checkout statement. Never saw this before.

Stayed at the Econo Lodge in Mendon, VT. for a night and it was wonderful...could not find any faults as stated in other reviews with the exception of one thing. You have to open the curtains and look at the back of the bldg. on the outside to notice that there is a small amount of renovation that needs to be done (painting, carpentry work, etc.) NOTHING TOO MUCH, SO KEEP YOUR CURTAINS PULLED UNTIL THEY FIX IT!!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room not facing the street and it was quiet!!!

Recently stayed here 2 nights. On the plus side the prices are very reasonable, the hotel public areas and rooms are clean, linens were good,(although sheets were a little thin), room size was nice and bed was comfortable. Also, the place is quiet and the outside grounds nice. The staff was very friendly and professional. On the negative side, the entrance road and parking lot should be paved - it is gravel which makes for dust and dirt tracked inside on carpets. The front entry door has seen better days - years ago, and should be replaced. The lobby and hallway carpeting needs to be replaced as well. All of the furniture in the downstairs and upstairs sitting areas should be thrown out! It is worn and threadbare. Also, all of the fake plants need to be thrown out as well, and please update the front desk area and get rid of the bars which are so intimidating. Larger flat screen TV's in the rooms should be standard. The location of this hotel is about 4 1/2 miles from downtown Rutland and there is plenty of parking. We would probably consider staying here again.

Stayed one night. The hotel is in need of an update desperately. Everything is adequate and fairly clean. Disappointed that the hot tub in the lodge didn't work and the one out by the pool we were told, "it hasn't worked in decades". The continental breakfast was pathetic so off the Dunkin we went. Wouldn't suggest anyone go there unfortunately. The place is dark, unwelcoming and smells stale.

This winter I began skiing and tried to get to killington as often as possible. The econo lodge was the reason I was able to do so. Affordably priced with good accommodations (is cute inside like you would picture a ski lodge, not too far from the mountain, large clean room). They have someone there to answer the phone 24-7 so you can make a reservation last minute if you need to. We have also stayed at one inn and one of the "nicer" hotels and we keep coming back here. You can't beat it for the price and the rooms at the nicer places were not much different at all. For the purposes of going to killington to ski all day, eat nap and then eat again (what we do) the econo lodge is perfect!
