Staying at this hotel was just too HARD, and that's just wrong. When you pay for something no matter the cost, it shouldn't have to be an endurance exercise to use it. While the bed and bathroom were very clean, the hotel overall is a dump. The desk clerk "Martha" borders on rude...wait, ...no...she IS rude (as a retired teacher-...

Inside of Inn is no better than the potholey parking lot...Hallway smelled of smoke....old,dried up food found near lamp...pool was slimy...should have known not to book this place since it was not listed on my child's "place to stay" college website. Was originally booked for two nights....could only stomach 1....nice enough staff....

When we turned in, we discovered sandy sheets in both beds. In the morning, there was no hot water for showers. The lobby " complimentary beverage" area was dirty and the coffee old & cold. We were one of about a dozen guests at the front desk complaining, only to learn that the clerk "was not authorized to solve problems."...

I had booked 2 nights and had to stay here because of the time of year (foliage). I was left with this pace, my 4th choice. First the good: This location is technically in Berlin, Vt on Airport Rd. When I saw the street name I cringed but the airport was small and I never once heard a plane. The...

This hotel would be a great set for a sleazy movie. You have to go outside, across a gravel path, to access the grimy "inside pool". Don't bother! There was no hot (or even warm) water in the morning. It reeked of ancient affairs and yesteryear's tobacco. Never again!

It was so dirty I would not even take a shower. Part of the woodwork of the window had fallen off some time in the last year or so and was still lying there on the floor. We overheard what we assumed was a drug deal clearly transpiring in the adjacent room. The linens, however, were clean. Does over-all depressing...

Arriving in the area without reservations, the choices are few, however, there has to be better than the Hilltop Inn. We had 2 rooms on the 2nd floor, with no elevators. If that were the only problem, we would have considered it a good choice, but there were more. The hallways smelled strongly of smoke, our room could have been...

Short story: Room 117 is infested with fleas! Longer story: After finding that all of other lodging in the area was booked, due to the beginning of the Fall leaf-peeping season... this establishment was chosen for a week long business trip. (Two seperate rooms). Upon checking in, it was mentioned that the room had brand new mattresses. Thinking that I...

We booked this hotel as a last resort, since everything else was sold out on Orbitz. When we walked in the front door, it appeared kinda kitschy, but "country" decorated for fall and I was hopeful. Our rooms were on the first floor and the hallways appeared acceptable. When we got into the rooms (adjoining for kids), the rooms were...

We stayed at Hilltop Inn for a night, and really wish we hadn't. As soon as we walked into the "hotel" we noticed the horrible, strong smell. It didn't get any better in the rooms, which stink really bad. Since we are a family of six persons, and it was Friday - there were no other rooms available in the...
