This place was horrible. The sheets were dirty and stained. The bathroom was gross. We were traveling through and just spending 1 night.....I couldn't have stayed longer than that and I almost couldn't stay the night. Try to find ANYWHERE else. It snowed overnight and they didn't plow.

What a disgusting, filthy place!! We actually opted to sleep in our car and take a refund! Well that's if you call being charged $20 and only receiving partial payment back a refund. Is tis what we call good service?! We were charged $20 because when we checked in, and did not even bring a single item through the door, just went in quick to find hair all in the bed and in the bathroom. When asking the "very rude" man at the office for new sheets, he never tried to make it better he just handed us over "new sheets" and 2 greasy, dirty pillows that must have been on his desk. This place should not only he shut down due to cleanliness but for poop service and management. Fix your place and be aware of all the poop reviews that YOUR customers are saying about you. It's US that keep people like you in business so take this as a warning!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is nothing about this place that is "okay". It is vacant for a reason! We left our bags in our car for fear that our clothes would end up smelling like the room. The blanket on the bed had cigarette burns on it. We took a real quick shower after 13 hours of traveling, my husband pulled back the comforter to take a nap while I literally stood in the room. After spotting atleast 3 small reddish beetle-like bugs ( bed bugs ?!?!?) and the K-9 Unit at the room 2 doors down removing a homeless woman from the property, we decided to high tail it outta there. Although we did not sleep there, we were still charged $25.00 for their trouble. You have got to be kidding me!!!! This place should be torn down! We wanted to stay in Lyndonville specifically because our family lives there. We know where to stay in the future, ended up in a wonderful place called The Lynburke Motel. Just as affordable and CLEAN, nice rooms and great front desk staff!!!!!

Room Tip: Dont stay here!!!! Unless you enjoy bedbugs!!!

The outside showed slight promise but when we rolled in at 2am after driving through Canada all day, we didn't care. The room was drab with your basic roadside motel outdated furniture. The bathroom had a slight vomit smell. However, It was better than paying $175 for a Comfort Inn in the next town or driving all night to try to find a better place.

Overall my stay at the Colonade was fine. The price was very fair, the room was spacious, with thoughtful ammenities like wifi, fridge, microwave, and small tube of toothpaste. The Colonade has been around for a long time, and it shows. It has soldiered onward long after the former non-attached restaurant and banquet room burnt to a crisp in the last 1980's. A modern update or remodel to the rooms would make the Colonnade a more desirable place to stay. The rooms do look rather outdated, though they are clean. The Colonnade staff is attentive, and the location is perfect just off I-91 at Exit 23. Would I stay there again ? Yes, with my desicion being based on price and location, location, location !! My kids liked staying at the Colonnade, and also weighs heavily on lodging decisions I make.

Room Tip: Check the 'big city' attitude at the door. Being annoying / obnoxious won't get you a be...

I get that the price is reasonable, but the carpet was unacceptably dirty, the bathroom area was dirty, the television had about a quarter of an inch of dust on it, the heater smelled like burning dust and hair, there were a lot of unexplained, loud vibrating/buzzing noises, the bed covers were even really dirty. The lampshade and curtains were broken, we could tell that the cleaning lady hadn't done anything.

Also the continental breakfast is a box of donuts and packs of craisins.

Room Tip: The second floor isn't bothered by headlights shining into the windows . . . but I would recomme...

Me and my wife were trying to find a good place to stay for one night at reasonable price on saturday july 9th 2011. The darkness was coming soon and we had driven all day long in the beautiful Vermont state with our old and loyal BMW motorcycle 1986.

We saw this motel and immediatly had a good feeling. We paid $60.00 + tax for a total of $65.00 for room 150 which is a smoking room with one queen bed. It was very clean and welcoming and also peaceful and not noisy at all. There is a friendly restaurant nearby where we had a tasteful vegetarian pizza. There is a Mc Donald restaurant as well.

Both restaurants can be reached by foot easily from the motel.



We recommend this motel without any hesitation.

Room Tip: Room 150 was on the second floor. We think that rooms located at second floor are much less humid th...
