“Decent Hotel”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

We stayed this past week at the Comfort Inn for two nights. Being mid week they were not overly busy. We had requested two rooms near each other and despite each of us having rooms that adjoined other rooms we were placed across the hall from each other. Not a huge deal but then the second night a college basketball team checked in and shared our adjoining doors. Even though the hotel was not full, it seemed as if they placed everyone on the same floor, causing much noise. The rooms themselves were well maintained. The breakfast was good and the front desk was responsive. There is a nice pool area on the basement floor with attached workout room and sauna.

Thank you for posting a review on Tripadvisor.
I apologize for not having met your expectations with the location of your two rooms. Based strictly on your review, I'm guessing the desk staff felt that having your rooms across from one another would be considered "near each other". Please know that we do everything possible to meet the requests of all our guests. When we have groups of any kind staying with us we a) try to keep the group together and b) try and keep other guests out of the same section. Obviously, this is not always possible, but we genuinely do our best.
Thanks again for staying with us and leaving a review on Tripadvisor.
Safe travels,
Brett

We stayed here in September 2011. This was an ideal stopover for our drive from St John in Canada to Montreal in Canada. We saw beautiful Vermont scenery rather than just a wide motorway. Crossing the border at Calais was easy, would recommend this route if you are coming from Nova Scotia to Quebec.

Thank you for taking time to not only leave a review, but share recommendations for future travelers. We proudly host thousands of visitors annually either heading to or from Canada. We love our friends to the north and they love us. If you are planning a visit to Vermont's majestic Northeast Kingdom...BRING YOUR PASSPORT. We are an hour south from French speaking Quebec. Taking a day trip up to Sherbrooke, Canada from the hotel is strongly advised.

Hope to see you again!
Safe travels,
Brett

The hotel was very comfortable, clean, friendly, good breakfast, great games room. overall we had a great stay.
It's a bit far from the mountain for my liking ( about 20 min to Burke- closest ski hill)
Also, pool was too warm for my liking and their hot tub too cold, sauna should have been also warmer, but we couldn't figure out way to make it warmer. They also have liitle gym which is nice.

Thanks for taking time to post a review(s) on Tripadvisor. We proudly offer New England's best ski and stay packages. One hotel offering four amazing ski mountains...Burke is 20 min, Cannon is less than 30 min, Bretton Woods is less than 45 min, and Jay Peak is 60 min. While we would prefer to be slopeside our location allows us to offer our guest unparalleled ski vacations. One hotel and four amazing ski experiences. You were one of the first guests to stay in our remodeled rooms. We still have some minor additions to wrap up in March and then again in May. All in all our guests are raving about the new room designs. Hope to “ski ya again” real soon!

Our room was enormous and well equipped including a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave. This hotel is situated just outside St Johnsbury, so you need to drive to get to a restaurant as there is not one on site. The lobby sold microwave meals, so after driving all day we settled for this option. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The large bed was comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. Breakfast facilities were a bit basic and it was all a bit frenetic. We would be happy to use this hotel again as a stopover hotel, which is basically what Comfort Inns set out to be.

I appreciate you taking time to leave a review on Tripadvisor. As you pointed out, we do offer extremely large guestrooms and they are well appointed. Hotel "brands" each target specific types of travelers. The Comfort brand is a limited service hotel and does not typically offer a restaurant. Occassionally, one will have a leased restaurant in its parking lot, but for the most part Comfort Inns do not offer a lounge and/or restaurant. Honestly, there are a handful of great restaurants locally and I'm happy that I don't have to compete against them.

Safe travels,
Brett

Stayed at this Comfort Inn twice this year. Both times, the staff were attentive, the property was clean, and the room was comfortable. It's a higher-end Comfort Inn and a rare gem as far as the brand goes. Breakfast was good, but I do hope the property can find some ways to make it stand out from the standard Comfort Inn fare. Rates are a bit high, even with a special organization discount, but there aren't many other national brands in the area, so supply and demand wins for them. I'll definitely keep this property in mind when I'm back in the area.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. You'll be happy to hear that upon your next visit you will find that we have completely remodeled our guest rooms as well as added some new and unique breakfast items. We are baking our own muffins daily and just recently started offering a western omelet. The muffins are AMAZING!

Approaching in fading light you see a huge parking lot with an enormous piece of flamboyantly shaped architecture behind it. When you get inside apart from a reception area there seemed to be no facilities whatsoever. You'd expect a place that size to have a bar, a full-service restaurant, but nothing. The room was fine-no surprises, good or bad.

We sat in reception to check out the local restaurants but were constantly interrupted by kids roaring through reception or taking whooping rides on the baggage trollies, Neither parents nor staff seemed inclined to do anything, The recommendations for local quality dining we followed up- we ate in one which was very poor indeed and all i can say is that the other looked worse. The trucks in the carpark don't help.

Given all this I cannot inderstand how this hotel could acculmulate so many positive ratings.

On top of which St Johnsbury is a remarkably nondescript town.

I genuinely appreciate you taking time to review your stay on Tripadvisor. Having spent 25+ years in the hospitality industry, I have grown to accept that no business (especially a hotel) can be everything to everybody. I accept that like art one persons masterpiece is another's trash. We love our hotel and thankfully the vast majority of our guests feel the same way. We are dissapointed that our hotel, amenities, local restaurants and community did not live up to your expectations.

Respectfully,
Brett
