Reviewed 31 August 2012 via mobile

Wow we booked through hotels . Com
At a military rate of 106.00 per night. Our suite with a separate bedroom was really clean and just perfect. Full kitchen too. Yes, it was a nice size. Great value.

The pool room was very nice with additional rooms to work on your laptop water free!
Pool had an awesome slide and water wasn't terribly deep so perfect for beginner swimmers. Water was nice and warm too.
Overall, the hotel was older but very well maintained. It was clean all over.

Night staff were super nice and so customer service oriented.
Morning staff , maybe foreign, not as friendly but not rude either.
Although it was not advertised as having a breakfast service, they did offer a mini continental selection but it was very limited.

Regardless, this hotel was clean and well kept and customer service was 100% from our evening staff.

Cons: no wireless in rooms

Just returned from a 5 day stay at Handy Suites, Essex VT. What a lovely surprise when we open the door to a large kitchen (fully equipped with even a dishwasher), living room combo and a more than adequate size bedroom with a huge walk closet. The place was very clean and inviting. I love how they provided more than enough plastic cups daily, soap for the dish washer and clean towels, whether you wanted them or not.
The only minus was only two hangers in the closet and an exuberant dog above our bedroom. Other than the minor details, I would defitely recommend this place. We return next summer, and make it an annual end of summer tradition.

This is not the fanciest of hotels but it is very good where it counts - customer service, cleanliness and price. Perhaps the decor is a little dated but if you're looking for a decent place to stay at a low cost, this fits the bill. In particular, we liked that they allow dogs with a refundable deposit.

The front desk staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived very early (9:30am) for our check in and, understandably, there were no rooms ready. But we told the woman at the front desk that we would go get some breakfast and she said she would call us as soon as rooms became available (we were traveling with another couple so we had two rooms booked). Within an hour she called us and said that she had asked the housekeeping staff to turn around two rooms as quickly as possible, and they did! So we got to check in early, which was great.

The rooms are very spacious - actually bigger than my first apartment! Our room had a full size eat-in kitchen with dishes and utensils and a full-sized fridge and dishwasher. It had a nice little "living room" area with a sofa bed and tv, and a separate bedroom also with a tv. The bathroom was large and clean. The bed was comfortable as well

We were there with our dog and at check out the front desk person went back to the room with us to do a quick check and our deposit was returned to us in full. Everyone was really nice and accommodating.

There is also a nice sitting area in the lobby and coffee and donuts and fruit in the morning. It's not the Four Seasons but overall we would say that, for the price, the Handy Suites are a perfectly fine place to stay and we would definitely stay there again!

Handy Suites actually has real suites--separate rooms with doors, not just oversize rooms, and plenty of closet space as well as full kitchens with utensils and cooking equipment. The staff--well, when we checked in, they asked if we needed a luggage cart--when there was a minor glitch, like door the magnetic doors keys needing to be reset--they said, next time you return, ask one of us to go up with you to make sure you can get in the first time.In short, the staff did everything possible to help the guests.
Not a five because the rooms aren't totally soundproofed, but I've been anywhere where the rooms were.
We plan to stay there every time we go to the Burlington area.

PS They have a sister property--Handy Suites Extended Stay, so check them both out if you're planning a trip to the area.
Hints, bring your own napkins if you plan to cook or eat in, and of course condiments--no one expects the hotel to provide salt, pepper, mustard, sauces etc.

We found Handy Suites to be great value and extremely friendly service. The manager went out of her way to be helpful during two stays / same week. We were a group of three couples and all found the accommodations very impressive. One couple had bad luck with noise from the room above, but overall it was a positive experience.

The evening manager was very nice and helpful when we arrived and was more than willing to direct us to a nice place to eat in the area. The check in and check out went smoothly. Our two night stay was pleasant for the most part, but the room did have its drawbacks. Unfortunately, I thought I booked a non-smoking room, but their records showed other wise and they couldn't accommodate any room change do to the events in the area. Anyway, the maintenance crew really need to do a better job in paying attention to details such as "dents" / holes in the walls, burn holes in the carpeting and thick dust in the exhaust vent of the bathroom. Unfortunately, you can't monitor all of your patrons at every minute of the day when using a room, but care should be taken by the staff, to ensure that when the next customer comes and stays at the facility, they have an enjoyable stay without wondering what else the staff may have missed or not done. Also, these are efficiencys and the size of the rooms are nice for the price, but the staff neglected to check and empty the dishwasher before we arrived and we didn't realize this until the last night we were there. We just thought we needed to supply our own utensils for the kitchenette. There was no indication that we should be checking for items in the dishwasher. Again, details such as this would be helpful and would make the stay more pleasant.

My family stayed here for 3 nights while in Burlington for a family reunion. We ended up only being at the hotel from 10 pm to 10 am on the days we were there. We didn't use the pool or try the breakfast. Check in and check out was quick and easy. The suite was large, clean, and comfortable. I did forget to bring my own cable for the wifi, but someone from the front desk brought one up to us. While the lobby is air conditioned the hallways on second floor were not and had a hot musty feel/smell, but once we stepped into a room everything was fine. The location was very convenient and at $82.82 (tax included) per night over the Fourth of July holiday, I think this was a good value.
