If you pay a low price for this hotel, it will be a great deal. If you pay more than $100, you may not be as thrilled.
My biggest beef about this place was the breakfast. There are only six tables for a huge hotel, and the breakfast has no hot foods. Here is all you get: coffee, tea, muffins, coffee cake, English muffins, PBJ, juice, and cheerios or raisin bran. That's it. No breads, not more than two kinds of cereal, etc. It was ridiculous. It was crowded and not well-stocked.
The floors are wooden and the hallways are a little loud. The pool was nice and warm but very small. There are actually two, indoor and outdoor, but the indoor one was kept cooler, about 82, while the outdoor one was about 85.
The Windjammer Restaurant was OK but the secret is to eat upstairs in the pub -- same menu but lower prices!
The cookies at 8pm were hot and delicious. The lobby is small, with only two couches and two chairs. The tea/coffee service is 24 hours but not well kept up. The staff was friendly and helpful if not completely knowledgeable.
The smoking rooms are much cheaper-- they couldn't give them away! They were $40 cheaper than my room. The rooms were clean and the beds a little older but not too bad. There are in-room games and movies. There was a table with a chair, and a dresser. The bathroom had a hairdryer. The tub was quite clean. The sink vanity is a little high for little kids. The closet door was mirrored.
Ask for a room with a pool view, as the hotel is U-shaped around the pool. The outer rim is the parking lot. Also, I wouldn't recommend the first floor, it is right off the lobby and next to the clothes washing machines, and must have been awfully loud.
The location is convenient to Shelburne, Burlington, and Grand Isle (about 20 min. to the Isle but 5 min. to the other places) and about 35 min. to Stowe. The hotel is on a main drag with McDonalds, a mall, a grocery store, and a gas station very close by.
Overall, not a bad stay but not my favorite.
