For the last 5 years my friends and I have stayed here when we go to South Burlington for Black Friday. It's convient because it is only an exit or two away from all the shopping malls. It has a kitchenette that allows you to cook in your room to cut costs. It also hosts a great continental breakfast that... More

I had to book a night unexpectedly and had a price that I had to stay under. So I got a room here and upon arrival was informed that due to an issue with booking I was upgraded at no extra cost. So I figured that I would share some pics of the room.

Stayed there in one of the suites on business trip. Complete facilities are ready and available. Very comfortable beds and the sorroundings were wonderful. The only thing missing there is the bar. However the stay was as comfortable as it can get.

The phone didn't even work the screens were ripped out of the windows. I had mold inside the fridge and it was absolutely nasty!!! If you value your health and the... More

This is a good extended stay type hotel. I was using it every weekend to go skiing with no regrets. The hotel has now dropped the Main Stay Suites franchise and is now under Smart Suites private label with no Choice Rewards. Sad to say, but I'll stay somewhere else with benefits.

If you like cleanliness, as I do, forget this place. The carpets and floors in the lobby are always dirty. Our room carpeting had burns and stains in it--not terribly appealing. The upholstered chair was pulling apart. And as for the bedmaking---you could almost picture housekeeping just pulling up the cover, since the top sheet was all wrinkled, which you... More

The hotel is conveniently located near to Burlington for visiting colleges, and the staff was genuinely pleasant. The breakfast was very low budget, packaged pop-tarts and cereals were options. Also, there were bagels and engish muffins w/ a toaster, along with toaster style french toast and waffles... most of the breakfast was processed food. Some fruits, coffee, tea, and hot... More
