“Good location”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Stayed here two nights Oct 2-4. Overall it was a good experience. The location was great in South Burlington. Our intention was to use the hotel as a base and to explore the area and do some "leaf peeping." The outward appearance was pleasing with the entrance to both the restaurant and the hotel being decorated with pumpkins, mums and hay bales...very fall/autumn looking. There was lots of parking. The lobby was small but adequate and the front desk staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. Check in was quick and efficient. The room was not overly large but big enough and very clean. Furnishings were somewhat dated. The bathroom was extremely clean and well maintained....the shower was great. Beds were very comfortable. I did not find the hotel noisy but there seemed to be alot of the hallway light that managed to shine into our room due to an ill fitting door. Breakfast was good with a variety of foods...cereal, bagels,muffins,boiled eggs and a wonderful fresh fruit salad! Loved that salad. We didn't use the pool or gym. Ate in the Upper Deck Pub. What a great atmosphere! The decor was fun and the food so tasty. It was a little noisy but the restaurant was packed!! I think that it's a popular spot with both locals and hotel guests. The hotel served warm cookies and milk each evening at 8pm. What a treat! All in all it was a good experience. I would definitely stay again.

Very attentive front desk people. Breakfast was good and those “cookies” treat in the evening is really nice!
The room was spacious, nothing special, but appreciate the fact the place was clean and quiet.
The location is good, well, Burlington is not a big city, but the place is near to getaways to nearby attractions.

My only complaint about this place is that the bed was not firm enough for my taste, which is VERY firm. Otherwise, it was a great stay. Spacious enough. Well furnished. Workable Wifi and lobby computers with decent continental breakfast and snacks. It might seem pricey, but we were in peak foliage. Very central to Burlington and UVM. Easy day trip to Montreal.

The hotel and room were clean, tidy and furnished well. The hotel is in a bustling area on the outskirts of town. It has a restraurant attached(didn't try this, but it was busy). Parking was plentiful.

On arrival we were issued our key card and proceeded to our room. To our embarresment we burst in on a gentleman who had already been allocated the room. The front desk quickly reissued a card for the room next door.

Late eveing there was some mechanical noise. This sounded like a washing machine but it may have been the neighbouring rooms aircon. We noted in the morning that we were between a linen room and a laundry chute. I didn't make a report as the noise stopped around 00:00, prior to me turning in. But if you retire early and the issue is with noise from the laundry it may be best to avoid rooms close to the laundry chute.

Complimentary warm cookiesin the evening was a nice touch. At Breakfast there was reasonable selection of items, all well stocked.

Overall I'd recommend this hotel as an overnight stop in the area.

This was an unexpected overnight to daughter's .My husband and I had both been sick with colds and thought it would be better to stay in a hotel for the night. We called our son-in-law and he made the reservations for us. Are we ever lucky that he has such excellent taste!!!!!!!
This is a such a beautiful place to stay. The next time we come it will be for more than an overnight!

My mom and I stayed at the Best Western Windjammer for four nights while visiting my brother in Burlington. I requested a micro and fridge via the mobile site during reservation and was delighted to find both in our room upon arrival.

We arrived late to a fully packed hotel. Our room was over the conference center. Large, well stocked room including coffee maker, hair dryer, shampoo, lotions, two luggage racks and free wifi. The TV was large although the picture was a little fuzzy. The clock radio has an aux input so you can plug your mp3 player or phone into it and play music. Loved this feature.

The beds were super comfortable as were the pillows. Very happy with the beds! The room was very clean and cozy.

The breakfast was above average and included vegan options such as bagels with peanut butter, oatmeal and toast with jelly. My mom enjoyed the waffles. There was seating outside and inside. The pool area was a nice spot to enjoy a wine before sunset.

The lobby was clean and the staff were nice and efficient. The hotel was full with a wedding party, and even though we had the room above where the reception was held we have no complaints. The music ended by 9PM.

A great hotel with a great price.Close to grocery stores and downtown Burlington. Will stay here again!

This hotel is clean and has many extras that a family needs. Free wi-fi, free breakfast , many accessible outlets for charging the may electronics , a microwave and refig in the room. It is convenient many thing and easy on and off the highway. If you stay and are not leaving early in the day remember to put out the the "Do not disturb "sign out the maids want to clean the rooms early. The hotel looks like they are committed to being better for the environment which is a plus. We will stay there many a time in the next 4 yrs.
