Ethan Allen Motel
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Burlington
Reviewed 2 October 2013 via mobile

When we first pulled up, I was like "ok this quaint." But then upon entering the room I felt panick stricken! It is verrrrry dated. Talking like faux paneling around the sink dated. But after reading the reviews, I relaxed and accepted it for exactly what it is--it is a clean old motel to sleep in. There are no frills. And however dated, it is well maintained. I spent two nights here in september and upon the thought of another quick trip to burlington this past week, I found myself considering staying there again...and you know what? It was booked! Overall, a really great value. And maybe even a burligton travelers secret.

Burlington can be very pricey - all I wanted was a clean, quiet place to sleep for the night. I reserved sight unseen, but was not disappointed. Nothing fancy, but it's clean and not too far from downtown and other local retail. There were some other non-chain places in the immediate area that looked pretty grungy. Glad I picked the Ethan Allen.

Last minute get away on Labor Day weekend with no reservations. This hotel had a vacancy do we stayed in the room in the 2 story brick building.

Pros: Beds and room are elegately decorated with a wooden bench on the outside of the room (which gets better WiFi reception). TV is a new flat screen; didn't try the pool but it looks nice.

Cons: Airconditioner and refrigerator is bit old and dated. The bathroom is still in 80's Harvest Gold Yellow color for the tub and toilet! :-) There's no complementary breakfast in the morning.

My family and I stayed at the Ethan Allen Motel for a night. It was very basic, older and dated, but clean. The beds were FIRM but not too hard.

The room was non-smoking and that is what is was.

For children, there is a small pool.

The restaurant next door is quite upscale and pricy, but there is a sports bar within walking distance and a corner filling station where they prepare fresh hamburgers for less than $3.00.

The taxi is $4.00 per person to the airport.

For the location and the convenience - it was a good choice for the night.

Room is shabby sheek and dated, but for what it is, it is a nice place. You can't expect more. Small TV about 21" old air conditioning units, but the bathroom is comfortable and the hot water works well, a bonus. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Which made the stay enjoyable.It seemed a little musty at first, but that cleared up once the air conditioning ran for awhille. It is very close to everything and I would stay here again.

The rooms are large (mine had a large 'main room', a bathroom, and a kitchenette, with stovetop range, microwave, fridge, sink, and a tiny table bolted to the wall and a couple chairs).

The room was very musty smelling when I first entered, but that dissipated after I left all of the windows open for a couple hours.

The bed was comfortable, and I didn't find anything that didn't work.

There was street noise from Williston Rd, but I didn't find it to be objectionable.

If you're not fussy about accommodations, this is a good value.

The hotel is an older place but it was clean and the price was good. The bed wasn't very comfortable. No breakfast but the bagel place close by was amazing. For the location and value we would stay again..
