So pleased with our stay last Fall (2012) that we booked in again for the Big E in 2013 a year ago. This time, we booked in 2 joining rooms with an ensuite hot tub, so our ladies weekend at The Big should be even more fun! Hotel in easy walking distance from a fairgrounds entrance. And the complimentary "evening wrap up" smorgasbord was a welcomed surprise! We got to linger with other travelers and the very hospitable innskeeper. Rooms very comfortable; like mini kitchen,too. Very helpful staff as well. All around exceptional stay!
