BRING EAR PLUGS

THE WALLS WERE SO THIN THAT I WAS AWOKEN AT 4:30AM THINKING PEOPLE WERE IN MY ROOM TALKING, BUT THEY WERE NEXT DOOR. WE COULD HEAR EVERY WORD, NOT TO MENTION EVERY BATHROOM NOISE NEXT DOOR. PEOPLE TEND TO HANG OUT IN HALLS TOO CHATTING AT 5 AND 6AM. THE LOBBY AND BREAKFAST AREA NEEDS A TOTAL MAKE-0VER. DARK, CROWDED AND DREARY DURING BREAKFAST. FOOD WAS OK. ROOMS WERE CLEAN AND THE OUTSIDE POOL AREA WAS LOVELY!

Windjammer: good during the week

While in town on business the Windjammer was in close proximity and the accommodations were a great value. Our issue was that while quiet during the week, the weekend crowd was very loud. On this trip, and a previous trip, we were repeatedly woken up from 11pm-4am by other guests. The offending agents were the typical 18-24yo intoxicated male meatheads pounding on a door down the hall, exclaiming "Brad, dude c'mon!" While the front desk staff was giving us a credit to the restaurant for our 2-3 hours of sleep obtained that evening, they remarked that a party had been broken up in another area of the hotel that same evening. Food for thought if you seek to sleep in a hotel. A prior trip to the more costly Sheraton did not exhibit such a disturbance, and will be our future hotel in the area.

Friendly, convenient place to stay

Very convenient - less than 5 miles from the airport. The adjacent restaurant has good food and nice atmosphere. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. Good workout room, but could use some free weights. The indoor pool has a hot tub. The free breakfast had a lot of variety.

Not bad

While traveling Vermont we stayed at this hotel for one night. This Best Western did not compare to the one we stayed at in Rutland, which was one of the best we have stayed in.

Pretty Good

The Hotel was your basic, clean middle-priced hotel. Good value for the area. They are doing some updates in the halls. If you are elderly or have trouble getting around, make sure you let them know in advance. The rooms can be a hike from the elevator. FYI- The restaurant on the premises isn't attached, you need to go outdoors and then back in. The food and service were very good. The place was packed for a Wednesday night. You may want to call ahead if you plan on eating there.

convenient to UVM and area attractions

Convenient location to area colleges. free breakfast crowded with few healthy choices. Room was clean and beds very comfortable. Place is big and room can be very far away from the lobby. Parking is ample and free. Room was quiet from hallway noise but the heater and fridge inside room were quite noisy! Went to the Upper Deck Pub which is in the hotel. Food and service was terrible! Fine for 1 or 2 night stay if visiting the area.

Did I mention the milk and cookies?

This hotel is a great deal. Considering the amount of money spent, it was great. The rooms were clean and quiet. The fitness center and indoor pool were both above average. The staff was friendly. The best parts of the hotel were the continental breakfast which was not only varied and well stocked, it was continuously stocked, even later in the morning. And did I mention the milk and cookies? Every night at 8pm, there were free milk and cookies in the lobby, yum!
