Stayed one night. Late arrival. They texted us a code for entry into out room without having to go to the office. Rooms are decorated with different candy themes. They have a fair size candy shop at the office. Advertised as the laergest candy store in Vermont. Very clean room. Comfy bed. Good location with the exception of being very close to a busy highway. Signs posted everywhere that smokers must stay at lease 25 feet away from motel building when smoking. (I guess so smoke doesn’t blow back into the rooms.) it was not a problem for me, as I don’t smoke anymore; however, my husband who does smoke wasn’t too happy about having to stand out in the windy cold.

Room tip: We were in an end room. Can’t remember the number. If you were facing the building, it would be on your left. Shower only, no tub.

This is an average kind of motel not too far from the middle of Middlebury. The rooms are clean and have all you need, but are not over large. However, Blanca, the new owner, made every effort to welcome us and went out of her way to contact us, meet us and let us in. Nice friendly lady, doing her best, learning her new trade - and she'll do fine!

Room tip: It's a small motel - not too close to the road, so all rooms are about the same

Very clean and comfortable place. We got here when the Candy store was about to close, but the lady in the store was also sweet and friendly and let us in to browse for candy. She also brought us a nice basket of food for breakfast. I would stay there again.

Stayed one night. Register online and get a code texted to you with room key code. You also choose your breakfast online and it's in your room. We did not get everything we ordered, but managed okay. Room is very clean and nicely decorated with a candy theme. (Candy store is part of the motel!) Bathroom door did not close properly. Toilet is so low it seems like a child-sized toilet. The sink & shower are upgraded and really nice, but toilet seems old. No window shade on bathroom window (high window) and bright light streamed in all night. Not being able to close the bathroom door properly (plus it squeaked) meant having a bright light in our room all night. A/C was quiet but one bed was right under the unit. Took awhile to figure out how to use the TV remote to change the channels or get the TV to play. Two Adirondack chairs outside the room are nice for sitting in the morning with coffee. Candy store is wonderful--every type candy one can imagine. Chocolate is a little pricey but very tasty. With a few more tweaks this will be a super place to stay! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Beds are very comfy. Pillows have vinyl casings which I didn't care for. No hairdryer provided (although requested), and very few electrical outlets.

Thank you so much for reviewing our motel. Many of the things you mentioned we are working on and are on our "to do" list as we just bought the motel at the end of December. We had to concentrate on the major things first but will try to get more done in the rooms as soon as we can. We did take off ALL the vinyl covers off the pillows just last week. So that one is done! We finally received the new fabric ones to switch them over. I am hoping to fix the door problem in the bathrooms in the next couple of weeks and order curtains for the bathrooms as well. I have stayed in the rooms and do realize the sun does beam in through the bathroom. Closing the door helps but with all this humidity this year, that has become a problem as well since the door don't always close. I am hoping to get most of the other issues addressed within the next year as we check them off our list as we go. We will continue to work on it and appreciate your feedback.

Compared to high end hotels, maybe this deserves a star or two less, but let's be real: it's about a two minute drive from Middlebury proper, it's very reasonably priced for the area, and it's kind of fun!. When you first drive up, you might wonder what you've gotten into: from the outside, it has that old 50's motel vibe. But the rooms are reasonably large, well renovated and nicely decorated. (The candy themes in each room are especially cute.) The bathrooms are smallish but everything works well; in particular, recent renovations include a very tiled (not cheap fiberglass) shower that is surprisingly roomy.

Amenities include plenty of parking right in front and pre-ordered breakfast options (cereal, pastries, fruit, etc.) that magically appear in your room late in the afternoon, ready for the next morning. And then there's the candy store in the middle of the bulding featuring homemade chocolates (very good) and an amazing array of other candies, including things that go with that 50's thing. (Necco wafers anyone?)

The proprietor was very helpful in snagging a room for us at the last minute, and we enjoyed chatting with her during visits to the candy store as well. All in all, not spectacular but comfortable and fun -- and you really can OD on the candy.
