“Uninvited Guests and other Mishaps!”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

This was not the most impressive place to stay. We were in Burlington for my father-in-law's hip surgery during Jazz Festival weekend. Our mistakes was not looking for rooms in advance! We arranged a room for Thursday evening, but couldn't find one for Friday. We finally found one at the Ho Hum Motel. The staff was very pleasant, however, that cannot possibly make up for their wretched accomadations. To begin with, I had booked 3 rooms each with one queen bed, or so I was told. Once checked in- we realized we had three rooms with one full size bed each to split amoung 6 adults, some of whom are fairly large people. Once speaking to the woman at the office, 2 of our rooms were moved so that we had queen sized beds. However....two of us were moved to a room without AC (upper 80 degree temperatures) and two of us were moved to a room that smelled like a combination of Lysol and doggie diarhea. NO THANKS. Once again, the woman at the office was very pleasant and moved us to a 2 room Suite with 2 queen sized beds, which the four of us shared. One room was refunded all together (becuz we werent using it) and we were given an $11 discount on the suite I paid for. Let's add to this some uninvited guests...the ants in the bed. We found a few ants in each bed, killed them off to the best of our ability and slept miserably on lumpy rocks disguised as mattresses with pillows flatter than Fred Flintstone's feet! The ouside of the place looks decent, but don't be fooled. Aside from the ants, the room appeared clean. The staff was pleasant enough and apologetic, but that won't make up for the miserable accomadations. DO NOT STAY HERE! We sure won't make that mistake twice.

The hotel was clean, pleasant, and right priced. The front desk lady was very accommodating, and the rooms were clean and nice sized. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks Ho-Hum!

Williston Location. - this review speaks to a single room in the old part of the motel.
We made reservations for $100+ a night on a peak leaf peeping weekend in Vermont. The room had no shampoo, coffee maker, hairdryer. Bare bones and shabby. We spent very little time in our room, carpet dirty, bedding and mattress very old, loud street noise. I did not see the rooms of the newer 2 story building by the pool, they may be in better shape. I would expect to pay about $50 a night for this room. There were shirtless guys just hanging around smoking and an early morning ambulance arrival on our day of departure.

Old style motel, that does happen to be the closest lodging to Burlington airport.

The room was an typical motel room, some of which looks like it was recently rennovated - like the bathroom, with ceramic tile, but some of which looks like its way past its prime like the heating unit. One of the mattress was ok, the other felt like the middle has turned too mush.

However, the biggest issue was the noise - between hearing every truck that went by (and they seemed to going by all night), and the heating unit going on and off, it was a pretty sleepless night.

The manager and the staff were nice and very helpful, but the room is just not there yet.

I stayed at the Ho Hum on Williston Rd. for the second time in two years. Both times the rooms were clean and the location great. We have a 6 year old child and having the pool was great for us all. The first time I stayed I loved everything about the stay except for the managment. He was rude and did not help us at all when asked about the area and places to go. For that reason I would have not stayed again but as we have friends who recently moved to Burlington we needed a place to stay again. Our friends had heard the Hotel was under new managment...so we stopped. The lady in the office was very friendly and helpful and much more pleasent. I will recomend the Ho Hum on williston Rd. to anyone intrested in staying in Burlington.

We LOVE this hotel. Let's face it, this is not a 5 star but one of those one story affairs you see all across the country. But, the management is always friendly, the rooms are large and clean, and most importantly for me, they allow dogs for FREE!! That's right, free with no pet surcharge. They do charge a deposit, but ours was refunded immediately after check out. Our room was 95 dollars including tax in the peak of the summer on a Friday night which is very reasonable for Burlington. I can count on one hand the number of independent hotels that do not charge extra for dogs, and this is our favorite!!! Jay
