Very nice and professional staff and recent renovations make this a motel to strongly consider. Room was especially nice with comfortable bed, flat screen tv, desk and sofa.Motel was very clean and a hot tub and indoor pool are also available. Breakfast was very basic fare. Plenty of restaurants and activities in nearby area. Killington ski resort 16 miles away. Would definitely return.
My wife and I were looking for a reasonable rate and a location close to skiing and this hotel suited us just fine. We also bought our 6-month old labradoodle as the hotel is per friendly and everything worked-out just fine.
We stayed in a ground floor suite with a couple in the room adjacent. The room configuration was unique--we had our own entrance with a foyer. The suite was spacious, clean with an updated and most comfortable bed/sheets/pillows. An attempt to update throughout was achieved; however, the carpeting looked tired. The kitchen was stocked minimally-just enough plates/flatware/glassware for 4 individuals. Pots and pans/bowls were also minimal. No sharp knives to cut cheese/veggies- thank goodness my husband always travels with his "boy scout" pocket knife! The kitchen had a full compliment-microwave, full size stove and refrigerator, wrap around cabinets, granite countertops.The dining area was ajacent to the living area with a dining table accommodating up to 6 individuals. We arrived on a Wednesday and stayed through Saturday....our rooms were quiet until Friday evening when someone arrived to occupy the suite on the second floor above us. We experienced loud banging noises from 10:00pm until 2:30am...reported to the front desk following morning. Staff was most accommodating, friendly and receptive. Would definitely stay next season but consider a second floor suite due to our experience on Friday evening.
A good stay for the price. Hotel is dated, and services are fairly minimal, but we were on our way to ski at Killington and just needed a place to crash! For the price it is a good deal - what do you expect? Very clean, comfortable beds, friendly staff.
Went snowboarding and needed affordable place with a good wifi. This hotel served the purpose. Staff were nice, room was warm and wifi worked good. Location was near amenities (Gas, Food). It was clean and everything worked. It was not noisy.

The place does do Welfare tenants, however they seem to put them in another section. As for the hotel, front desk staff, friendly, helpful and nice. Rooms are worn, tired and in need of upgrade, so does the condition of the place.
However, was clean, comfortable night's sleep and in a pinch to save, not a bad deal if you need a shower and sleep.
