Upon arrival the woman who checked us in acted inconvenienced. For the price, we weren't expecting much from the room but we found out that the temperature controls for our room were actually in another, which wasn't helpful. The property just doesn't seem like it has been well maintained and is getting run down, which was disappointing because the area...

This is the best kept secret in New England. The rooms are warmly furnished, spotless, and the owners so hospitable. Best of all the rates are a pure bargain. Very affordable and a great getaway for travelers and those in the area.

I don't usually stay at motels- probably because I have (or shall I say now, "used to have") a biased, unfair image of them, but while looking for a place I could take my precious pooch while attending a lovely family reunion of a childhood friend in the Wilmington area, I found this place, and now I am a convert....

We drove in, slept and drove out. It was adequate for a nights rest. Easily seen by weary eyes in the drivers seat. This motel has a nice old fashioned front porch but there is no charm to be found in the room unless you count the extra blankets that seemed to be leftovers from what was issued to soldiers...

We stayed a night at the Viking Inn and felt we could have done better in Wilmington. There was nothing major wrong with the room, management, or property, but there was a series of small issues that made this the inn we enjoyed the least during our two-week trip to New England. Nothing was really dirty, but then again not...

The Viking is nicely situated in Wilmington, within waking distance to the few things the downtown has to offer (good restaurants, small stores.) There is a Shaw's supermarket across the highway within walking distance. The room was small but clean and everything worked. No pool, or frills, just a nice little room. The staff was friendly, and so were the...

We checked in after a long day of motorcycle riding,right as the sun was going down. Like other reviewers, we thought that the place looked charming on the outside and were thinking that this might be the only hotel for quite some time, so we decided to give it a chance. Immediately upon entering the room our noses could tell...

Nestled in the mountain woodlands of Vermont, this mom & pop property is definitely full of charm. After all, when was the last time you stayed at a hotel that still used check-in cards instead of a computer terminal and handed you a key to your room? Nearly destroyed by a flood in 2011, the owners have been working to...
