We stayed at this hotel in August of 2006. They have recently finished a renovation, so there are new carpets and furniture throughout.
This is a basic hotel, no frills, but still it is clean and comfortable. The lobby is small and crowded, and people actually vie for parking spots in the parking lot, which is too small and inconvenient. We did not try the restaurant across the street but did try the Sirloin Saloon within walking distance, which was OK (they served my kids' salmon raw-ish inside). McDonald's is right on the corner near the hotel.
The pool is tiny and was cloudy. Yech. The whirlpool is old fashioned and looked slippery. We did not try the sauna.
This towel thing is a valid point. Even though it must have been obvious that we were four people in the room, the maid continuously left only 2 sets of towels, which I found extremely annoying. The bathroom is tiny and the useless fan is attached to the lightswitch, so it came on whenever you used the light. There was a heat light in the ceiling, and the bathtub had one of those old fashioed clotheslines you pull out of a round silver ring, kind of handy if you had clothes pins. The bathtubs were definitely NOT renovated and were scratched and dirty-looking.
The beds were a little high but not too bad; but the bedding had cigarette burn-holes in them. Yech. Our view was of a cinderblock wall into the Army Depot next door.
The location is reasonable, and in VT they roll up the sidewalks so it was actually quiet at night. There is every chain of fast food you can imagine right there on Route 7, and Ponderosa, plus a Hannaford Grocery Store within 1/4 mile. Gas stations and Dunkin Donuts are nearby too. Rutland itself is NOT the ideal picturesque Vermont town. It's a small, ugly city, but the hotel is convenient to Killington skiing, only about 10 min. up the hill. The VT Maple Museum is nearby but don't bother. It was dumb.
The breakfast was pretty good, hard boiled eggs, make-your-own waffles, muffins, donuts, cereal, breads, toaster, yogurt, juices. The breakfast staff was friendly and warm.
Don't expect frills, but a clean night's stay over all.
