“Classic Vermont Inn”
Reviewed 30 May 2006

Over the last four years, while our son was a student, we stayed many times at the Middlebury Inn. The Inn is actually three properties: the main building, the Porter Mansion, and the Motel. The main building rooms are interesting and reasonably comfortable, although the bathrooms are generally small and modestly updated. The Porter Mansion rooms are larger, ditto the bathrooms, and generally more luxurious. The Motel has the most modern rooms and bathrooms, but is only furnished with double beds (no queens or kings). Every room has a refrigerator, and the Inn leaves you samples of Vermont honey and syrup to take home. There is no fitness center at the hotel, but they will arrange a pass for you at the local fitness facility. Or, you can take a lovely walk through the town and countryside!
The price of the room includes a full breakfast buffet, which is generally very ample, and a lovely tea is served every day from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. (also complimentary). The hotel also has a small Vermont-theme gift shop and a so/so dining room for dinner.
The staff is very nice -- helpful, friendly, accommodating, and welcoming in every way. They turn an average New England property into a very special one. In addition, the Middlebury Inn is in the best possible location in town, with easy access on foot to the town boutiques and the college. Downsides? In the main building the elevator is not self-service, and you either have to use the stairs or get someone to operate the elevator for you (which they are happy to do). The pillows are very hard. That 's about it in the complaint department -- all in all, a very nice place to stay.

We stayed here on a Thursday evening after a long day of college tours. Our room was beautiful, clean, and spacious. Fridge in the room -- a nice amenity. Breakfast was included and it was one of the BEST free breakfasts we've ever encountered - eggs, potatoes, muffins, unsweetened yogurt, granola, fruit, cereals, hot oatmeal, etc. Yum. Get there by 4 or so and enjoy their complimentary tea and goodies-- we missed it unfortunately . . . . tarried too long at the college. We will definitely stay here again -- especially since Middlebury College is at the top of our daughter's college list!

In October of this year I spent 4 days at the Middlebury Inn. It was everything the Website said it was and more. I had a very quaint and cozy room as I had requested. Liked the high ceilings and the fact that you can adjust your own heat according to your needs.

Unfortunately 2 highways run right along side of the Inn so traffic noise was constant and all night long but still managed to sleep well after the first night. Enjoyed afternoon tea and sitting on the porch, even though the weather had turned cold. Loved to watch the traffic go by and the visitors across the street in the Park.

Staff went out of their way to please you and were always very friendly. I would not hesitate to visit the Inn again in the future or recommend it to friends.

All in all, I had a very memorable time. Maybe I'll be back next Fall......

I love the Middlebury Inn! It is so classic with beautiful, lacy duvets and pillow shams on the bed, ancient plumbing fixtures in the bathrooms, and it takes imagination to get to your room.

There are no long, boring corridors to walk. This is a rambling manor house with numerous split levels. You have to go up half flights of stairs and around hidden little corners to find your room.

The staff will patiently answer any questions. The lobby looks like someone's large living room. It feels like home. This is New England hospitality at its finest!
