“Dirty Sheets and No Hot Breakfast”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

We checked in and when I pulled back the sheets there was hair and what appeared to be feces smeared on them. We went downstairs and the staff (not owners) were profusely apologetic and gave us new sheets and bedding and even offered to make the bed. I declined and made the bed myself. The staff told us owners were away at a wedding out of the country and it appears housekeeping got sloppy. There were no hot items for breakfast although the brochure promised this. Room was large and bed otherwise comfortable. We checked for signs of insect infestation but things looked ok. Again as Choice Privleges Diamond members we should have gotten either an upgrade or refund. Complained to Choice about our stay, have yet to get a response.
Other options in the area, do not recommend this property.

My stay at the Montpelier Econo Lodge was great. The hotel is cheap even on the weekend, and comes with a free breakfast. So close to many great ski mountains. I wouldn't take a romantic weekend here, but it is a great place to go for a couple guys looking to get away CHEAP for the weekend. A little run down, but really nice staff!

OK. I realize it is an inexpensive hotel and you should not expect anything fancy but this place is just plain gross. It is deceiving because it looks not bad from the outside and the front desk area looks kind of nice. However, our room was just NASTY! The room had a gross smell that was a combination of old cigarette smoke, mildew and some awful smelly overpowering carpet deodorizer. The hallways also had this gross awful smell and we originally were given another room room which also reeked. Since the room was cold, we thought maybe if we turned the heat up while we were out, it might improve. Wrong! In addition, the heater rattled. I took the cover off to try and fix the noise which was driving us crazy and was welcomed by a faceful of gross dust, debris and general nastiness. The bathroom was dirty and marred. The mattress was old and almost in a collapsed state. Our lampshade was ripped. I could go on..... Even after leaving the hotel, all of our clothing and baggage carried the awful stench that seemed to permeate everything. Don't stay here unless you are totally desperate!

On a positive note...it is a quick walk to the downtown area.

My boyfriend and I stayed here during a snowboarding trip, and it got the job done. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful since we ended up having them bring a microwave into our room. The showers were extremely warm, the beds were comfy, and they had updated flat screen TVs with a decent amount of channels. This hotel wasn't anything special, but I would definitely stay here again. We had no real issues besides not feeling good after breakfast and some noisy neighbors. Also, when the lights were turned off in our room the outlet by the beds didn't work, which made it quite tricky to charge a cell phone. All minor issues that wouldn't keep us from going here again (especially for the price, $60)

Room Tip: They are AAA approved, so use that to get a discount. Also, ask for a microwave at the desk if you...

Disgusting, smelled like wet cigars, MOLD MOLD MOLD, carpet was WET. I was switched to another room upon which the toilet was clogged, ac was broken, ..... I would not ever stay there again regardless of the price. I have paid similar rates and stayed in rooms light years better.

This hotel shows signs of age and wear. The bed was clean, however, as was the bathroom. The tv's in the rooms are quite large and there is a good cable tv selection. The continental breakfast is dingy at best and you're better off just hitting the road and finding something to eat around town. Overall, it's not a bad hotel, just nothing fancy. There was a slight mildew smell in the room I stayed in and I noted that other guests had noticed this too in their rooms.

Though this is not a honeymoon suite it is an extremely clean and professional place to stay. The breakfast was awesome, nice tv's and the rooms were clean. We stayed 2nights and will definitely return for our next trip. My step son goes to Norwhich University so we were looking for a cheap place to crash before our 8 hour ride home and this was perfect!! Bed was SUPER comfy too!
