“paper thin walls”
Reviewed January 12, 2004

We first stayed here 9/02 while visiting nearby colleges. We were delighted, as we were the next visit in spring 03. The last 2 times we were dissapointed. The management is great, they are moving rapidly on upgrading. (The review about the dirty rooms must have stayed in the old Ho Jo part of the hotel. The renovated part is really nice, hence the other reviews!) What we could not tolerate is the paper thin walls.
We were next to the laundry room once but it was our fault we didn't ask to move. We just came back yesterday and we had some wierdo that turned on the tv at 4:45am and started cooking(burning) in the microwave. Hard to sleep with infomercials going. We had to call a plumber twice and for backed up toilet that shouldn't have backed up...
The fresh baked cookies at dinner hour are delicious along with free coffee 24/7 and continental breakfast included. The price can't be beat but there is no fan to turn on full time to keep the noise out. If you don't mind that, it is a really nice place for the value. Always ask for the New section of the hotel. IMPORTANT!

Would not go there again. The pool is in the other building you have go out side first. In cold wether not good. The pool area was dark and not clean. Not enough water in the whirlpool so the water spit at you. The lamps did not work. Worst of all they did not change the sheet from one day to the next. The sheets would not stay on the mattress either. Bad mattress if some one rolled over you would bounce out of bed. For the money it is not very nice. The bathroom where fine.

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel, especially given the July 2003 review we read on the Trip Advisor. The rooms were clean and spacious. We did not visit the indoor pool facility but the outdoor pool looked clean. The continental breakfast included with the stay was quite enjoyable with a wonderful selection of coffees, fresh bagels and cereal. Apples and yogurt were also included. Perhaps one improvement could be a few more toasters to speed up the breakfast process. We definitely would stay at this hotel the next time we are in Burlington.

Skip this place. The room was dirty: broken and badly stained furniture, mold growing in the bathroom, sticky carpet and a general bad smell. The trash was never removed. The bed was uncomfortable and the aluminum 'security bar' on the slider made me feel anything but secure. None of the promised amenities were in the room, no iron, no coofeemaker, no hairdryer, not even a laundry bag. The 'deluxe' continental breakfast was bagels and coffee and they had only 1 toaster. The indoor pool and spa looked murky. At least there were plently of TV channels as a distraction to how unpleasant the place was. This place is not as advertised.

Though we are across Lake Champlain, we travel to Burlington for weekend getaways quite often. We always stay here. It's a very clean, affordable place to stay. The rooms are decorated nicely. They have hair dryers, irons, ironing boards, and coffee makers in the rooms. We haven't used the swimming pool ourselves, but it always has swimmers in it. There is no room service here, but might we suggest dining at the Bar & Grill next door. The food is excellent at a very affordable price.
