I stayed there for 3 nights and it was very nice stay all over. It's very conveniently located close to UVM and shopping malls and airport. Housekeeping is excellent and front desk people are very friendly, especially James, who was very nice and instrumental in my decision to stay one more night by giving me a good rate. Very pleasant...

We found the Ho Hum as a mid-price older motel that often works well for us. William gave us a good rate on a busy Burlington weekend of events. When we checked in we found a dirty toilet seat and hairs under both pillows on one of the queen beds. I wiped the seat and we used the other bed....

Stayed there with my son for a soccer tournament. Staff was very friendly and took great care of us. Rooms were basic and clean. Our room was a two bedroom unit in the older section of the motel and had a fridge in the room. There is a newer section which was just as nice. Two great restaurants walking distance...

We were attending a convention nearby and stayed here to escape the high prices of the other hotels. While its not elegant, it IS clean, comfortable beds (very hard mattresses), and very adequate. Even though we were in a non-smoking room, there were burn marks on the wall-to wall carpeting. Our room was in the 2 -story addition, is away...

The information desk at the airport recommended this motel when I was stranded by my airline. the man on the phone and at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was basic, clean,and comfortable, It seemed as if the young couple may be new managers or owners. They went out of their way to help me. I...

Bed linens were not clean. Hairs of prior guests on sheets. Not sure what kind!!! Gross. Ambience is of hookers and drug dealers which seems to be tolerated by management. Stay away. .unless you can get into the second building which is shown on their website. Perhaps that one has a more savory clientele. Wouldn't know. Stay away. Unsafe and...

I made a reservation at the Ho Hum on the recommendation of a friend. When I made my reservation the person on the phone seemed friendly and efficient enough. I gave my dates and credit card info and she confirmed them. When I arrived I didn't realize that there were two Ho Hum Motels. I went to the one on...

The smell was moldy when we first opened the door. ..and we never got used to it. The towels were see thru and tiny. The blankets were threadbare and had cigarette burn holes. My husband had to stand on the bed and adjust the a/c. The floors were dirty. The microwave was sticky. So much for the highlights.

Paid $125 for a night in the two-storey part. Smelly. Took the bedspread off because it smelled, too. Blanket underneath was threadbare, with a couple of cigarette burn holes for good measure. And 125 American dollars gets you all this plus no fridge, no microwave, no hair dryer, no air conditioning...but plenty of big, fat ants roaming the carpet and...

Being that Burlington is a very pricey state, I guess the $70 it cost for a basic room for the night was acceptable, especially since it was within walking distance of the Greyhound station at the airport, and there was a good restaurant right across the street. The bed was comfortable, the shower had hot water, and by and large...
