This little Inn was so updated and clean and was close to a wonderful breakfast restaurant. I would definitely stay here again.

Cute motor lodge with a retro feel, spotlessly clean, everything new, and large comfortable rooms with everything you need -coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, iron, etc. Even complimentary bottled water! King bed was extremely comfortable. Will definitely stay here again!

What a find!

Pros: Absolutely everything. Every detail was well though out, designed and extremely clean.
Cons: N/A
Location: A short drive to Burlington, maybe 10 minutes. Very close to McDonalds and Dunkin Donuts.
When I go away, I like to support local businesses and although this was a bit off the beaten path, I am so glad we found this place. The rooms were very reasonably priced, extremely clean and comfortable, designed well and with each room being named after a Hollywood character, it made it fun. we loved it so much we booked it again the second night, we had a different room but again, extremely clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly too. When we arrived the first night, there was a sign on the door for us to call a number to have someone come to check us in, which I felt strange about but the gentleman showed up in less than 3 minutes and was very friendly and helpful. I can’t wait to stay again on our next trip to Vermont!

Nice motel just outside of Burlington

Pros: Price, staff, and the quality of the room.
Cons: Nothing really. Perhaps have irons in the rooms.
Location: Stayed one night for a business trip. I can't really comment on this except that Burlington is one very beautiful place.
My experience here was fantastic. Everything was completely redone on the outside and inside of the motel. The room was spacious and very comfortable. I've stayed at a lot of hotels and paid significantly more where the quality of the room was far worse. It really was that experience where you open the door and just say -- wow.

Nice hotel in Colchester VT

Pros: 2 min from Lake Champlain, 10 min back road drive to Burlington center. Clean, Comfortable. Diner across the street for breakfast. Watch a movie!
The hotel was recently built by the 2nd generation owner of the Drive In Movie next door...We were greeted by the owner and he was a great resource for local information. The hotel was quirky in a good way, nothing over the top, but enough character to remind you that you were not staying at one of the national chains, and to encourage your return. Every room has a theme based on an actor or acting team. The rooms were clean, we were comfortable, and we were entertained. The love and care that the owner and staff have for the place is obvious in the appearance of the property and rooms. Everything is clean and tidy. The Starlight Inn is a wonderful place just 2 minutes from the lake and 10 minutes from Burlington via back roads. If your plans take you to the Burlington/Colchester area, I'd highly recommend the hotel.

Funky Little Motel

Pros: The rooms are huge, well decorated in the Hollywood theme. We stayed in the VIP room which had
Cons: Nothing
Location: A breakfast place is a 2-minute walk across the street.
We chose this place because it is 15 minutes closer to our destination than all the Burlington hotels. What we found was a 7-unit motel, brand new, built by the owner of the drive-in next door. Not only are you allowed in to the FOUR SCREEN drive in for free, not only does each room have speakers so you can watch from your room, but the best of all is the owner also built a raised and screened gazebo at the end of the property overlooking 3 of the 4 screens, and equipped with speakers to watch from there without getting mixed up in the madhouse of 500 vehicles jockeying for position on the other side of the fence. We saw Jurassic World and had a great time.
