To make a long story short, we ended up in the Montpelier area on a motorcyle with no hotel reservation. We tried about four other places before finding that this one had a room, and we were so happy to just have a place to go that maybe we overlooked some little details.
The lobby is actually quite charming with the big side staircases, and the woman at the front desk was very pleasant. We thought the little gift bag of maple syrup and Vermont apples was very cute too. We were in room 209, just above the lobby. It was very spacious but had the tiniest, dirtiest window you've ever seen. The rest of the room was clean though, and the TV was large and the bed was comfortable. Many other reviews state that the rooms had a bad or moldy smell, but we didn't experience that at all. What we did notice was that it seemed like the renovation work was done by subpar contractors- paint on the microwave, uneven tile work, etc.
The breakfast room downstairs was laughably small for a hotel of that size, we couldn't even bother trying to eat in there but we certainly didn't mind grabbing a free bagel. The hotel does have a strange look to it on the outside, odd outside-but-enclosed hallways. All in all, it was a fine place to sleep for one night but I'm not sure I'd want to have a longer stay there.
