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.
Very reasonable price for a lot more than expected. Is set up in a series of houselike designs, so the suites have good noise insulation from other rooms. Check-in was easy. Rooms and bathrooms were excellent, in good repair and very clean. The continental breakfast was varied enough to make it better to eat in than go to a diner.
The only addition I would make would be in-room safes, but that is a very minor want.
I liked how they are big on going green, with water and towel / linen service.
Easy to check in and no check out required. Full breakfast was average, Sink in room drain very slowly and small refrig did not work - but we had no use for it anyway. Good price and worked for our needs,

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.
