Econo Lodge Montpelier
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Montpelier
Reviewed 22 December 2013

Kind of a feeling of faded glory, which I like. No real complaints, and the place was clean and pretty well maintained. Breakfast a bit meager, hallways quite cold, but the room was bigger than usual, and the bathroom much bigger (unfortunately, the sink, toilet and shower were all crammed at one end, so most of it was wasted space).

I would absolutely stay here again. But I would only recommend it to someone I knew wouldn't mind a little roughness around the edges.

I heard rumors of a restaurant, but no sign of one.

The room had been updated and would've been nice if it weren't for the horrible smell of mildew. They clearly had some problem with leaks in the ceiling. The entire room had a wet musty mildew smell. It was unfortunate. The breakfast was good and the service was as well. Too bad. I hope they can get it fixed.

Room Tip: The queen rooms look to be updated.

We stayed here on our way through Vermont as we really like Montpelier, the hotel is just up a hill opposite down town, so very convenient. The front desk staff were nice, friendly and helpful. Our room was fine, good bed and pillows and spotless bathroom.

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.

Hello EmelyeKay

I.m Pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and will inform our front desk staff on your kind words. I,m also happy that you enjoyed the Vermont products we handed out to our guest during the fall season. I,m also happy that you liked 209 as that is a nice spacious room and we have fixed the minor problems that you brought to our intention and hope to see you again next fall.

Due to a mix up in bookings, we ended up on a Saturday night with no reservation. The walk in rate was pretty high given the quality of the site. The room smelled damp and the furnishings were tired. The breakfast room was tiny.

Montpelier is such a pretty town - it's a shame that we couldn't have stayed at a better hotel.

Room Tip: try to get a room on the upper level - they don't smell like the lower ones!

I,m Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. May i suggest booking in advance directly through us during the fall season as this is the peak season for most hotels and prices can range up to 300.00 a night. But if you plan ahead, you can get rooms for allot less.

Upon check in the clerk offered no suggestions as to where to eat or what to do in the area. The motel was located up a dark side street away from any other businesses or restaurants. Room had an undescribable odor that they attempted to mask with some kind of fragrance/room deodorizer. Extremely noisy family staying in neighboring room which appeeared to be motel employees. Older middle eastern man vacuuming hallway by room and didn't stop or move out of the way while we were trying to move into room. Staff was not at all friendly nor welcoming. Breakfast was as expected but room was inadequate for the size of the motel and number of guests. Not worth the rate paid for the room.

Room Tip: Was on ground floor which you were able to enter from an enclosed hallway. Hallway was noisy.

This old converted office block is terrible. Rude, unwelcoming staff is just the start. I stayed 2 nights & was extremely disappointed.The uneven corridor floor absolutely stinks. Its the old carpet that's rotting away that's causing the smell. The breakfast was edible but in such a small dining room - it's a joke. The " dining room" is behind the front desk & consists of 2 round table to seat 4. there are fixed wall benches so that you can stare closely at the wall. A sign displayed states " More seating available upstairs ". I inquired. You have to carry your breakfast through the front desk, walk upstairs ( there are no lifts ) and sit out of the way. Really poor.!!! I questioned this practice with the elderly Asian male on reception. He just shrugged his shoulders, looked away and answered a ringing phone. Ultimate rudeness. They were delivering a load of new beds when I was present. All the stained broken ones were left for guests to view. I am not a snob by any means & can cam in the woods. Which would have been far more enjoyable. What a stinky, unhelpful dump. DON'T GO HERE !!!!

Room Tip: Room outside in the fresh air - is far preferable. !!

I'm sorry you didn't have a good stay with us . As i have stated with other reply's that we are constantly improving and having a shipment of brand new pillow top mattresses and box springs is just one example. the old ones was not busted and was given to the local homeless shelters for free. Our staff have gotten rave reviews on service and hospitality in the past .
So maybe a economy brand hotel wasn't the best choice .
