We had never been to Montpelier before and it worked out during a recent road excursion that it would be an ideal stop over point during our trip. I had found the Inn at Montpelier through Tripadvisor and we decided to give it a try despite the higher price charged.
The reception person / owner was very courteous and took the time to explain the features at the Inn along with make recommendations for restaurants in the area. We were pleased with our room and enjoyed the unique decor of the buildings. Our TV wouldn't work, but a quick call to a phone number posted at the front desk for after-hour issues sorted that out. (A light switch on the wall needed to be turned on).
We enjoyed the 24 hour snack areas in both buildings, but what we really enjoyed was spending the evening sitting on the spacious old porch of the main building, sipping some beverages and chatting with other folks. The Inn is within easy walking distance of the entire downtown and has a very relaxed atmosphere about it. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom was well equipped and the parking area was adequate in size. The continental breakfast prior to our departure was OK and you could dine in the dining room or out on the front porch.
I would recommend this establishment for anyone who is tired of standard box-hotel type of places and who would like to have a taste of what the finer accommodations of the past offered.
