Hollow Inn and Motel
Ranked #3 of 4 Barre B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 July 2013

The pet friendly rooms need to be updated they need to take up the old carpet and put down hardwood floors and add more lighting to the rooms and more electrical plugs to the room like all the Red Roof Inn have done also the Red Roof Inns have put down hardwood floors I all their rooms This has made the rooms more injoyable to stay at with the cleaner rooms! At the hollow Inn The room we stayed at needed to be updated bad! !! it was very big room and had a nice flat screen TV But The carpet was in need of steam cleaning and there was a couple of holes in the walls the doors needed to be replaced in the bathroom had holes and scratches from where a big dog had jumped on it And the room could use more lights and plugs for pluging in things like your computers The front door to the room needed to be replaced The hot tub didn't work but the pool look nice didn't see any work out room or guest laundry they need more ice machine for the outside rooms that is not in the main hotel to use so that they don't have to go up to the main hotel across the parking lot to get ice for the room. But the staff was very friendly when you asked for things they tried to help you with your needs the best they could. They just need to up date the outside rooms that were pet friendly that we stayed in !!!! Please take up the old out dated carpet in the pet friendly rooms and put in hard wood floors !!!!!!!!

From other reviews I approached this place with a lot of hesitation but the price was right and I ended up pleasantly surprised.

The good: Grounds are well kept and there is plenty of free parking. My room is quite spacious! I am in a King, non-smoking in the Inn part of the main bldg. The in-room wi-fi works great. Sheets are thin but very clean and there are no stains on either the bedding or the carpet. The carpet is either new or recently shampooed. The shower throws medium-pressure water and allows for very hot water if you want it. Check-in was smooth and courteous and Inn is pretty quiet overall which is a huge change for me after staying in mostly chain establishments with school kids running and screaming everywhere. The mini fridge and microwave both worked well and I stored my purchases from the Cheese & Wine Fest easily. Very new flat screen TV with all my favorite news channels. A soda machine is near the front desk as is ice and a main fridge if you have filled your room fridge. Breakfast is what you might expect from a chain with breads, coffee, and sweet treats.

Very minor criticisims: Don't let these stop you from staying here! The a/c machine in my room works great but is pretty old and very loud even when turned on low. Fortunately I was still able to sleep very well. I guess all hotels now have the energy-efficient CFL bulbs which I can't stand. If your looking to read in bed you'll need to remove the lampshade and move the lamp closer to your bed. Alarm clock only, no radio-- and ladies: bring your own shampoo and soap if your picky about toiletries.

I did not use the fitness facilities.

Pros: price, room size, friendly staff, location, free wi-fi, plenty of parking

Cons: not as clean as I would have wanted, breakfast carb-centric and limited, toilet was a double-flush, dated in general.

The owner & staff all went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. The mini fridge & microwave were handy, the bed very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this motel. It's a very welcoming place.

Stayed here with a friend while skiing in Vermont going from Killington to Sugarbush. The hotel is dated but where else can you find a room with two queen beds for $70. The room was clean and comfortable.

Stayed here for two nights, the rooms are large, beds are soft, the rooms are clean (somewhat).
The bathrooms: old used soap in the soap dish, shampoo in plastic packets - which when your showering and wet are impossible to open except by using your teeth (YUCK).
