The hotel is convenient if you are visiting other areas in Vermont and/or want to be close to a variety of other restaurants. The hotel restaurant is clean & the staff is pleasant. Breakfast is a plus and dinner is reasonably priced for a hotel. No lunch services. The hallways have an odor in the carpet and the areas for smokers should be further away from the building, as you can smell the smoke when entering the building from certain doors. The bathrooms need updating desperately- not your typical Holiday Inn Express bathrooms. The grounds could be cleaner and more inviting as you approach- maybe a play area for children.
The hotel was clean and breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The room was clean and the heat and air worked well. Overall, I would recommend this hotel. It is in a good accessible location and is close to local attractions like Killington resort. A good value for the price. I would definitely stay there again.

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.

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.
