This hotel is terrible, and they charged $120.00 last week. The hotel is old, and not charming. The rooms were in really bad shape, and the continental breakfast was awful, they did not even have real cream for your coffee.

We booked this room in advance because of the location and the king bed. The reviews that I read had me very skeptical. Even after arriving I was skeptical because there weren't a lot of people staying there except for in the hotel part across the parking lot. When we arrived in our room on the 2nd floor we were...

There are much better options. You would be advised to take them. Rooms are dirty, staff is uninterested. Looks like it hasn't been updated in decades. This place could be wonderful, but it needs someone who cares, and unfortunately it is clear that no one has cared about this place in a long time.

Avoid at all cost!! The innkeeper and most of the staff were very rude. The hotel in general, the room, the furniture, everything was old, dirty and ugly. The fitness center was in the basement and it was creepy. The hotel swimming pool and Jacuzzi were out of order. The breakfast was very disappointing, no fruit, In all it was...

Spur of the moment led us to Hollow Inn. A room check showed us large rooms with small refrigerator, microwave and iron and a balcony. It was once an upscale property. It needs some tlc but, for the price, it was very nice. The owner was very helpful with local attractions and suggested Sarducci's which is one of the best...

Don't stay here!!! The innkeeper was rude. There was an extra charge for a third person in the room even though we still only needed two beds. The "extensive breakfast" the advertise was hard bagels and a waffle maker. Milk and juice at breakfast had been sitting out way too long. No fruit, no proteins. The "fitness center" was a...

The rooms are truly massive. The linen and bed were good. Plentiful scalding hot water. I liked the setting of the property. Wi-fi speed was fantastic. Overall, excellent value for money. HOWEVER, there was noise from other rooms. I think the walls are quite thin and there are interleading doors that worsen the problem. I think if you had noisy...

Hard to describe this place, I'd say if you're staying for more than a night (maybe two) look elsewhere whereas if you're just staying the night as we did it does the job. We were on our way to Montreal but had to start late so decided to break up the drive and stay in VT. The rooms are HUGE...

I stayed this past winter, and would stay again. Lovely large room, plenty of hot water and clean towels, large flat screen tv with cable, and wifi. The continental breakfast is better than many of the hotel chains I've stayed at. There can be some noise here when full; ask for an upstairs room if this is a problem for...

Our room was musty and smelled bad. Lamps were missing bulbs. The door wouldn't lock properly so when we went out at night we packed our stuff and put it back in the car for safekeeping. DIdn't dare to get into the bed so we slept on top of the covers. Avoid this place.
