“GOING DOWNHILL SINCE LAST TIME”
Reviewed 22 June 2010

i arrived mid afternoon and the office setting was still the same-rude lady (said her name was Allison) still preoccupied with her son while the dogs were roaming around the office greeting the guest (i find this a pretty disturbing setting). Anyways, I really like the location of the motel so I secured a room for the night. I checked into the room to find it in disarray to what it what it had been last month when I stayed here. Even the housekeepers were different- the lady that had been so helpful was no where in site. I asked Penny (one of the housekeepers) where the other lady was and she informed me that she had been terminated but did not want to get into details- which I took as a good answer and went back to my room. I personally feel that the atmosphere -office setting and the way the rooms are kept now is enough reason for me to never want to stay at this motel ever again - AND YOU CAN BE SURE THAT I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE ELSE EITHER!!!

I stayed at this hotel when visiting my father at the hospital. The price was excellent and the owner was extremely helpful. The room is dated to the point of nostalgia- you cannot be picky and stay here, but the setting is safe and clean and the exterior pool area was well cared for. You can park right in front of your door, which is very convenient. I slept soundly. Don't expect amenities; bring your own hairdryer and shampoo, although if you need anything, the office will provide. This is a very pet-friendly hotel.

I chose this motel based on T.A. reviews I'd read. If all you want is a basic, clean motel near the airport, this is the place for you. Although the carpet was stained in several places, the room was large enough and had a kitchen (that I didn't use). The location was quiet and easy for getting on and off the highways, although a little farther away from downtown Burlington that some may want. But, it is extremely convenient for flying in and out of the airport. The only complaint I had was that there was only one lock on the door - no deadbolt.

If you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay near the Burlington Airport and aren't looking for much in the way of amenities, this is a great little place. It does feel a little bit like you're in a Coen brothers movie, but beyond that, I would definitely stay here again. Family-run, old-fashioned feel to it, but they do have free wi-fi, which was a pleasant surprise.

I don't see how anyone could really have a problem with this motel. It is not a 5 star property, but charming, convenient, and quite affordable. Great for a stay before an early morning flight from the Burlington Airport, or a place to stay after a late arrival if you don't want to be driving home in the dark after a long flight. Spacious room, minimal amenities, but what would anyone expect for 60 dollars a night!! We were perfectly happy with this room, and will definitely stay here again. We also stay at the Ho Hum motel across the street, and they often seem to have a price war between the two, so call both for your best price, as both hotels are similar. I especially like the parking right next to your door so you don't have to schlep all your luggage into your room, and can go back and forth to your car trunk with ease for anything you forgot to bring in. Very well lit, and in a safe area as well.
