4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2006

I stayed at this motel in September. My room was really comfortable, the staff very friendly, and price was very affordable. Good value for the money. I would recommend this motel.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2006

This motel is a typical mom-and-pop one-story, drive-up motel, that has definitely seen better days. Our "superior double" room, had worn furnishings, which included the furniture, drapes, and mattresses which were not at all comfortable. The foam-backing on the front window curtains was so worn that to view them when the sun shone was like viewing stars in a planetarium, with all of the smallish to large worn off spots looking like stars, constellations, and galaxies. Also, a gasket inside the toilet tank leaked, causing it to run intermittently (approx. every 20-30 minutes) all night long, making it even harder to sleep. In addition, the room was not very clean. There were several dead insects on the carpeting and on the bathroom floor, as well as old toenail clippings that had not been swept up. Oddly enough, a broken Oreck vacuum cleaner was on the sidewalk in front of the room next to us, and remained there during our two night stay. There is an outdoor pool, but it has structural damage, and there are actually pieces of concrete and dirt on the bottom. It appears that someone attempted to patch it, but did an amateurish job. A continental breakfast with many cold choices was available, and was probably the best offering at this motel. It appears that this had once been a cute, clean, basic mom and pop motel, and with a good cleaning, some TLC, and some updates (mattresses, drapes, the pool, etc.) could again be a decent place to stay; however, it is not a place that I could recommend at this point.

If you reserve online, make sure you bring your confirmation. I arrived late at night, after reserving on a travel website. The owner charged me about $30 per night over what I was quoted online ($80 vs $50) and could not find a reservation for me. The next day after speaking with a receptionist, she informed me the rate was indeed $50. Unfortnately, the owner is the only person who can make a refund and he was no where to be found the entire weekend nor 4 weeks later has he returned one of my 10+ phone calls.

This is a very basic older motel but the staff are very nice and the view is super. Close to all VT and MA Bershire attractions
