“Absolutely awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

Make no mistake - this is a motel of the worst quality. The front desk person was friendly but took 20 minutes to check us in. We were placed 3 doors off of the lobby where there were teenagers running and screaming. The floors and surfaces in our room were filthy, the bed was broken, the bedspread was stained, and the room smelled musty. We stayed 5 minutes, left, requested a refund, and ultimately were charged for four nights instead of none. Never, ever again will we stay here. This hotel is a safety hazard for children and adults alike.We went to the Comfort Inn which is further away, more money, and ultimately heaven compared to this complete mess of a motel.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

AmericInn in Burlington was cozy! The interior is lodge themed and very quaint and welcoming! The lodge feeling makes it differnet than a refular hotel! This hotel is located next to a small burlington mall, target, java station, starbucks, movie theater, and a couple other small businesses. It is 6 minutes away from fun city! I also loved the continental breakfast!!!

Upon entering our room, there were stains on sheets, bedspread, bathmat, very dusty, unvacuumed floors, a filthy unwashed coffee pot with something (possibly dead bugs) shriveled up in the bottom of it...I asked for a refund and checked into a different hotel. They need to either hire new or retrain (comprehensively) their housekeeping staff.

It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Highs: Okay breakfasts, decent pool area, no musty or smoky smell in room. Lows: stained bedspreads, dirty carpet, dirty dinged up walls. I would say that a shampooing of carpets, coat of paint, and new (or clean) sheets/pillows and the place would be three star.

First off the staff was just excellent. Everyone was attentive, helpful, wanted to do everything they needed to do to make things work out. I don't think you could have had a better staff except at some of the professionally trained 5 star hotels. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable. The rooms are virtually noise proof. We never heard are next door guests which consisted of 4 small girls, of which I am sure were not quiet for the entire 3 days stay. We also never heard the hallway noise or thunderstorm outside. You have to love a room that feels like you are isolated from the rest of the world. The linens and towels are indicative of a $50-80 per night hotel. The breakfast was typical breakfast at hotels in that price point. Parking is easy and was never full. Pool area was very clean and nice however remember that this hotel is near a water park and gets the overflow from the waterpark lodging. Which means at any given time there could be 20 children in the pool area. HOWEVER, BIG BONUS POINTS, they have an evening adult only time which is 10-midnight. Perfect for those of us who get in late and would prefer to relax in semi quiet. If you spend over $80 for a standard room at this hotel, you are overpaying. Anything less than $70 is a bargain.

Room Tip: Queen 2 bed rooms are very adaquate in size. Check priceline for bargains

I stayed in this hotel last weekend and I had such a great experience! All of the staff is very friendly and helpful. My room was very nice. It seemed as they just got new sheets and blankets as they were very nice and crisp. I will continue to stay at this hotel every time I travel to Burlington!!
