About the only thing the Vendue Inn has going for it is location. Unfortunately, they fail at most everything else. Check-in is difficult at best. There were groups of guests standing around waiting for their keys. Service was rushed by both the check in staff and bellmen.
Our room was not in the main building which seems to be what so many others have noted on this site. Additionally noted is that the walls of the annex building are paper-thin. We could hear conversations in the rooms next to us. The footsteps on the ceiling in the room above kept us awake. The view from our room was of trashcans and wires. The cleanliness of the bathroom left something to be desired. While the afternoon reception was adequate, management would be better off and fairer to their guests to reduce their nightly rate as this did not foster camaraderie with other guests as everyone sat at separate tables. This was so unlike any other “inn” in which we have stayed. AM coffee in the lobby was a nice touch and appreciated. It was probably the best part of our stay. Breakfast was supposed to be cooked to order. Were those really eggs that they served? And grape jelly? Yes, I said grape jelly for your toast with no other choice available. Food served was more like you would be served at a low-end diner. One would be better off to stay elsewhere for a reasonable tariff and take a cab to the area near the Vendue Inn. It certainly is not worth the price or the trouble of staying there. Even their special rates far exceed the quality that is expected for such pricing. I certainly question their membership in the elite Select Registry.
