Great facility. My wife and I stayed 3 nights in late October and truly enjoyed the location, professional staff, enclosed pool and sauna, fitness room, and pleasant room. Restaurant on site, however, did not meet our expectation. Went to other nearby places to eat ( many in area ) for breakfast and dinner.

We stayed here during peak Fall season (the hotel was full) and yet did not have to wait long for a table in the restaurant or for breakfast in the morning. The hotel has all the amenities you would expect from a well known chain and a good position above the road for views. the restaurant was better than expected and their blue Margarita's are highly recommended!

A very nice quality hotel. The public areas, facilities and rooms are well kept. The indoor pool is a good size to allow a decent swim to burn some calories. The room was comfortable and well furnished. We had a problem with noisy guests at 3am next door, and the front desk dealt with this speedily for us. It's a shame that some people feel that drunken shouting and foul language are acceptable in a family hotel at any time, not alone 3am. The only part of the hotel experience that was disappointing was the breakfast- you get given tokens to redeem in the on-site restaurant. The breakfasts available for the tokens are pretty basic, and if you want extras, you have to pay the difference. For a hotel of this quality, that lets it down a little. Would I stay again? Yes I would, but I'd probably give breakfast a miss.

If you're looking for a continental breakfast, where you can fill up on cereal, eggs, fruit, maybe a bagel...look elsewhere. The "Wandering Moose" breakfast used to be buffet style, however it is now restaurant-style service. Guests choose one of a few pre-selected options (a bagel and cream cheese, OR a waffle, OR fruit and yogurt, etc). The sad part is, the quality of the food is the same as it would be buffet style, only you have to wait for a waitress to get it for you, and you get much less of it. I was served a rather brown "waffle-iron waffle," as those breakfast rooms tend to have.

Very disappointing, as the room was great and the beds very comfortable. We cancelled several nights of our stay here and opted for the Days Inn in Burlington. Wonderful breakfast there.

Thank you for your response, I will assure you that we have heard out guests and will be returning to the continental breakfast and will be expanding it with eggs and a side meat in hopes to please a much broader range of tastes. This will take effect on November 3rd and we hope that you will return to enjoy breakfast again!

We found this hotel to be very clean, very comfortable, and very convenient. We stayed three nights.

We enjoyed the cookies, coffee in the lobby, and the hot tub. The breakfast that is included was more than adequate for our needs. They ran out of coffee on our first visit, so we brought our own from the lobby the next day. Our king bed room was clean and comfortable there was a nice view out our second floor window but......

Why only average rating? The noise from the parking lot was bothersome. We were awakened very early in the morning by parking lot noise. One guest was idling his diesel truck outside our room for at least a half hour at 6:30 am. The next morning, a busload of field hockey players were doing drills in the parking lot at 6:45am, it wasn't even light yet. Not the fault of the hotel, but really inconsiderate of the guests. Throughout the stay, the noise really carried from trunks and doors closing, and alarms being set. Just be aware of this, because you may want to ask for a room on the other side of the hotel. You may give up a view but gain some sleep.

Room Tip: Avoid the parking lot noise and ask for a room on the other side.

Thank you for your kind comments, please accept our apologies about the parking lot noise. I was not aware of the drill's taking place in our parking lot and we will be sure to ensure all guests that will not happen again. The back side of the hotel is much more private unfortunately does not offer the same mountain view.

We stayed here overnight on a recent trip to New England to see the fall foliage. As other reviewers have noted, this hotel is at the top of a very steep hill in a very scenic area. We were welcomed warmly by the front desk staff. We had a double queen room that was extremely clean and comfortable. It was a long walk from the elevator to the room, but it was in a very quiet area of the hotel. There were two tour buses staying there also. A full breakfast was included and served by very gracious staff in the hotel restaurant. The hotel is within minutes of Ben & Jerry's and the Cold Hollow Cider Mill. Overall experience was excellent.
