    « Enjoyable Thanksgiving Break »

    Luckily the staff upgraded us to King room and it just added to our relaxing, enjoyable stay. Hotel is clean, efficient and friendly. The breakfast was very good. We thought it was continental but it was a hot buffet. Dinner at the Windjammer was excellent. Don't miss the Prime Rib.

    « Great value for price for a Burlington, VT area stay »

    We have stayed at this hotel several times, at different times of the year. Great value for the price. Nice staff. Love both the indoor and outdoor pools. The free breakfast is fine, though the seating area for it can be crowded at times. The restaurant and bar are very good, but at times both can be busy (graduation weekends!). But then there are plenty of alternatives for food and drink nearby. Nothing super special about the neighborhood of the hotel, but it feels safe, has lots of helpful stores nearby, and one can quickly get to the great attractions/businesses/the highway from the hotel. Plenty of free parking.

    « Great location, awesome restaurant »

    We love staying here as its very close for hockey purposes and the food in the lounge is awesome. Lots of TV's help make it even more enjoyable way to pass an evening. Always happy when the tournament is in Burlington!

    « Nice Stay/Nice Staff »

    This was our third stay at the BWP Windjammer. Our room was very clean and appeared to be recently painted (the downside was that when we walked in, the smell of air freshener was overpowering - had to open the windows to let in some fresh air). The beds were very comfortable, the Internet worked well, and the shower was quite relaxing. Milk and cookies at bed time was a nice touch, and the breakfast: eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast were all hot and tasty. The front desk staff and cleaning staff were friendly and helpful. A very nice place to stay!

    Everything was good. Just need to improve on the breakfast. The room was a cold. We put on the heat as soon as we arrived. it heated up but then cold air kept coming out of the vents. We were cold during the night.

    « Special weekend, dinner and shopping »

    Stayed Saturday-Monday. Anniversary weekend. Simple but nice room. Clean, quiet. Window opened a bit to keep fresh air. Same complex had Windjammer, nice but we liked Upper Deck Pub, upstairs. Great grub, reasonable price. Friendly. Very popular so time your visit. Waiting in the room is comfortable. King bed real nice. TV modern. Price here is competitive for the area. Mall, concert spot, restaurants many. Room is very nice but simple, maybe even a bit cozy type. But still has a nice feel.

    I stayed at the BW for 3 day on business and was very happy with everything. I loved the restaurant, Windjammer located in the same building as the BW , for their excellent service, extensive salad bar & tasty entrees (Brownie Sundae!!!). Don't miss a visit their bar "Upper Deck Pub"nice selection of beers, top self booze and knowledgeable bartenders.

    This is the second time that we have stayed at BW Windjammer and both were great stays. Breakfast included is always fresh and plentiful, Friendly staff, comfortable rooms/beds, and you can walk to the Windjammer / or the Upper Deck Pub Restaurants, very good food and service. Good location in Burlington for us! won't be our last stay there.

    « Excellent value at an excellent price »

    While I would have preferred to stay IN the city to avoid the commute in/out in traffic, this hotel offered excellent value. It's not as pricey as the Burlington hotels, there's free parking. It has its own restaurant/pub. There's a free breakfast buffet. There's also an indoor and outdoor pool. My only complaint is that I requested a room near the other couple and this wasn't honored. I booked on-line and was told that that information isn't relayed well. They suggested in the future I call to make this request.

    « warm chocolate chip cookies »

    If the cookies aren't enough, the pool's pretty great, the rooms come with microwaves and fridges and the beds are fairly comfy. Also, the staff was welcoming and helpful. A little funny to find from the road, but super convenient to the airport. It's fairly large, so it can get crowded and a little noisey. Continental breakfast is fairly decent.

    « Wonderful stay at Best Western Plus Windjammer Inn! »

    We were on a road trip from Maine to upstate NY to visit my son at university. We decided to stop in Burlington for the night to break up the trip. We reserved a family suite so we could have two bedrooms due to our family group's needs. The suite was very comfortable and the mattresses were AMAZING! The breakfast in the morning was ample and well-stocked. We enjoyed the night so much that we reserved the room again for our return trip, even though we didn't originally plan to stay in Burlington on the return home. The cost of the suite was very reasonable, especially considering that it was possible that a large group could stay there (king, 2 queens and sleeper sofa). The hotel is only 5 minutes from downtown Burlington and the UVM campus so it is very convenient in that regard. I highly recommend staying here!

    « Over night stay while at UVM »

    I am a UVM parent and Travel Agent. When i arrived to get a room last minute I was greeted with a smile and the gentleman who checked me in (Saturday evening 10/22/16 after 10:00pm - sorry can't remember your name) was very courteous. I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Burlington VT. Free daily breakfast had the standard options and the quality was good.

    « One night stay over »

    The hotel is quite a distance from the waterfront. The hotel itself was nice and had a good on site restaurant and bar, offering a range of food and drink. The room was a good size and clean. The bathroom wasn't huge, but was clean and had plenty of towels.

    « Ok in a pinch. Good access to I89 »

    We stayed here for the weekend while visiting family. The room was ok. A king bed but nothing special. The shower head was the worst. We took out the low flow valve in the shower so I could get the shampoo out of my hair. Breakfast was complimentary - and was awful. Cold eggs, bacon and sausage. The bananas, oranges, and apples were good, as were the bran muffins. There were Keurig machines in the rooms, but a box coffee maker at breakfast. Not horrible, but we won't stay again. For over $200 a night, it wasn't worth it.

    « Beautiful Hotel, Great Service »

    We stayed overnight during our trip back home to New Jersey from Quebec City. We couldn't have been happier with our selection of this Best Western. All the employees from the front desk to the restaurant were professional, friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and the bed very comfortable. They honored my requests upon booking for an upper floor, quiet room without even reminding them. Overall excellent choice.

    « Pleasant stay »

    Room was good, though a tad small if you have a bit of luggage. Bed was good, shower was hot with good water pressure. Room was very clean (having wood/fake wood floors must help a lot in keeping it clean, and were a pleasant surprise from grungy old carpet). A/c a little loud -- even on 'low fan', it was very noisy and I had to turn it off to sleep.

    « Very nice »

    We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The room was very good and the bed very comfortable. Staffs were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was also good with some choices... We also had a meal at the adjoining restaurent which was good too. We would not hesitate to go there again. A good 5 stars

    « Pleasant stay »

    The hotel is located on the south side of Burlington, equidistant from the airport (hotel shuttle available), the University and downtown. It is located behind a restaurant, with the main lobby and entrance in the rear, facing away from the street, so it is quite difficult to see the hotel from the street. One has to drive through the restaurant and hotel parking lot, then around the hotel to the back side to find the main entrance, quite an unusual layout! The 2 story hotel is well maintained, and staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. Since the hotel was well set back from the highway, there was no noticable traffic noise. My room was a bit smaller than expected, but not cramped. Window opens; climate control has digital controls, was quiet, and draws air from outside. Room furnishings include refrigerator, microwave, enclosed closet, and multiple accessible electric outlets. Breakfast, included in the room rate, had a large selection, which was kept well stocked. Price was a bit higher than I would expect for this type of property, but may reflect the season (fall), and high demand due to the University nearby.

    « Excellent Place to Stay Just Outside Burlington »

    This hotel is located near a busy exit off I-89, just southeast of downtown Burlington. Despite the busy intersection, the hotel is set back enough from the road there is little or no traffic noise at any time of night. Rooms were spacious (we had two queens), clean, well-appointed & very comfortable. Nice restaurant on the hotels grounds (2-minute walk outside to get there. Fine dining restaurant on the main floor, with a pub & grill on the floor above. Menus surprisingly similar, though we found the pub (on a Monday Night Football Night) to be quite lively (read: noisy). Five minute drive to downtown Burlington, less than that to Univ. of VT.

    « Great Stay »

    Family room ? 1 room had 2 double beds and 1 pull out queen sofa, microwave & coffee facilities, a table with 4 chairs. The other room had 1 king bed and chest of drawers. Each room had a bathroom and TV. Small shampoo, conditioner and body lotion in each room. It was cheaper than getting 2 rooms. We were 5 adults and very comfortable. Breakfast was quite good with well made scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, cereals, fruit juice, fruit, yogurt, muffins and very fresh glazed donuts. Even though it was near the airport it was very quiet. A bit off the street in a back lot so wasn't sure we were going in the right direction. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Comfortable but a tad noisy »

    Conveniently located, close to city centre and airport. Decent number of good restaurants in the area including their own (which is quite ok). Free wifi. Only downside is the wooden floors so you can hear the people walking around in the room above.

    « Another great stay at a great hotel »

    This was my second stay here and it was wonderful. The hotel is beautiful and clean. And Casey is an absolutely wonderful manager. She gave me an amazing offer to make up for a rude employee. Who else would actually make up for a mistake? Nobody. She is the best. A+ in my book. I will definitely return with a big smile.

    « Will stay here again; excellent property »

    Very nice two-day stay here in October; convenient to Burlington and to areas north and south. Modern, clean, quiet rooms. Pleasant staff. Good continental breakfast with adequate variety of foods. Only complaint with the room is the absence of a comfortable chair for reading. We will stay here again when in the Burlington area. No complaints at all.

    « Convenient with attached restaurant »

    The location was a little difficult to find but once we did it was clean and so convenient to have the restaurant within a easy walk. Staff were helpful and friendly and check in was easy. WiFi was easily accessed.

    « Clean and Courteous! »

    Stayed in a newly renovated room which was exceptionally clean, bright, and modern. Staff extremely helpful...Jason at the front desk went out of his way to print bus schedules without being asked. Hotel is about 1.5 miles from Burlington center. We did the walk which wasn't too bad as you pass by the beautiful University of Vermont campus. Good amount of restaurant options near by (walking distance). Free airport shuttle, free breakfast, and 24 hr coffee/tea are also nice plusses!!

    « Evaluation »

    Excellent place for business or vacation. The restaurants offer very good food and 150 different kinds of wine! With my wife we have stayed at this hotel over the last ten years twice or three times a year, typically for a total of 15 to 22 days a year. There is a very large shopping mall near the hotel plus other shops.

    « A great place to stay »

    Any place where the staff goes out of their way to make your stay more enjoyable is a great place to stay. The BW in Burlington is the only place we consider when we are in the area. It's location, amenities and staff make this hotel our favorite place.

    « Just returned from a three night stay, highly recommend with no complaints. »

    Very reliable hotel that measures up well price-wise with chains that don't have an indoor/outdoor pool and fitness facility. I had thought I booked our trip a month ago and was in full on panic when just hours before making the 4 hour car ride realized I never clicked the final confirmation with our charge card payment. I called the front desk and they were incredibly nice and reassuring that they would hold a room for us. Traffic can be a bit busy on the main drag, but it moves decently as long as you stay away from the Mall road(Dorsett Avenue) It's a close proximity to Waterfront Park and Churchstreet Marketplace(two miles or so) and is a very short walk to seem very good dining options. Their onsite restaurant was very good and highly rated, but what we loved most was The Upper Deck Pub above the restaurant. It was such a great place to go for a quick bite or a longer stay to enjoy an appy and a few drinks. I have never been to a hotel pub that had soooooo many great beers on tap. Usually you walk into a hotel pub and it's Bud, Miller, Michelob and a few other really bad options, what they had here was amazing. I highly recommend.

    « Enjoyable Stay - No complaints »

    Spent a couple non-consecutive nights here with rooms across the hall from each other. Both stays were enjoyable, rooms were clean, quiet and on the 2nd floor. Staff was great. On the downside there was no waffle maker but they did have plenty of good bacon with the included breakfast. I would stay there again. Just as an FYI stayed at the end of Sept and the prices were super high due to fall foliage visitors so value wise it wasn't good but all the hotels in the area had comparable rates.

    We spent 2 nights at the Best Western in Burlington, VT. Hotel was nice and located in an area close to restaurants and fast food.

Beds were comfortable. Staff were pleasant.

    « Best Western Plus? More like Retirement Home Plus »

    Really disappointed considering this property had somewhat good reviews. The building looks more like a retirement home with the decor, the smell, and lack of a single wall art. Rooms are extremely small. Buffet breakfast was lacking any substance and the service wasn't up to Best Western standards. Really a waste of money. The Best Western Plus for example in comparison in Waterbury looks like a 4 star resort compared to this property. Stay here only, ONLY if you have no other options in Burlington.

    3
    « Good Enough »

    This is an average, older hotel in a convenient location. Our room was quite small and outdated, but we didn't really expect more based on what we paid. The walls are very thin and doors slam shut, so it can be noisy. The breakfast area always seemed crowded, but the food was fine and they kept up with the rush of people well. Just fine for an affordable and convenient place to stay in Burlington.,

    « A little expensive for this type of property »

    Very good service, good breakfast and easy wi-fi connection. Thought it was a little pricey for the type of property it is ($165/night). Convenient on/off of interstate. Quite crowded in the restaurant around 9:00 and only staff member to keep things clean and restocked, so that was a little chaotic.

    « Very Enjoyable Stay »

    This hotel was centrally located to Burlington, close to Waterbury and a gateway to the Champlain Islands. The hotel was lovely and accommodating. We ate at the Windjammer Restaurant three times and each was a pleasure. Wide range of menu items and a great salad bar. The upstairs pub was also very enjoyable. Very good breakfast buffet.

    « Always convenient and comfy! »

    My husband and I have stayed at this hotel over a period of several years. The comfy beds, great breakfasts, microwave and fridge in the rooms make it an easy stay. Most flights leave super early in the AM, and it's a great way to start a vaca by booking a room here, where they will keep our car and shuttle us to and from the airport. Then we always have a delightful dinner at the Windjammer Pub and toast another trip!

    « Quirky »

    The hotel itself is in a nice and quiet location. My husband and I thought it was strange that 1/2 the hotel was floors 1 & 3 and the other 1/2 was 2 & 4 but not attached...except through the foyer. The room was clean, but the building itself was very old. The doors to the hallway from the room had huge gaps where light came through all 4 sides of the door. Sounds from the hallway were not muted at all. The air conditioner didn't work and though set to 65 it would cycle a few times an hour and not make any changes. The staff were all wonderful though. We were just shocked at the building itself.

    « Very convinient to everything »

    Location is set back far enough away from highway and major road to allow for peace and quiet, yet convenient to shopping, highways and fairground. Enjoyed my stay, plenty of on-site parking room to for our car hauler while at the car show. Excellent breakfast and top of the line restaurant on site. Clean, quiet room. Friends of ours stayed across the street and were envious of us since coffee was available 24/7 and a great breakfast bar, not just fruit and Danish.

    « Clean, reasonable rate and good location »

    Visiting for family weekend at UVM and chose this hotel because of a good rate. Room was clean, bed comfortable and it is located close to campus and to getting around the area easily. Rooms are small, bathroom tiny, but fine for a couple nights stay. Breakfast is fine. Ate there one day and went out the next. There is a Starbucks within walking distance. Major stores nearby, right off the highway. Would definitely stay here again.

    We stayed here twice (three nights each time) during the last fortnight however, we have stayed here on four occasions in the past, on holidays from Scotland. The staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful; the rooms spotless; and the complimentary breakfasts excellent. The hotel is a great jumping off point for all of the beautiful state of Vermont (and much of eastern New York state including the Adirondacks), and m of course, the busy and buzzing city of Burlington. Not to be missed.

    « Great Personal Service Beyond Expectation »

    I can't say enough about this wonderful place! Jason and the Front Desk personnel went the extra mile when my husband was having surgery at the UVM Medical Center nearby. Not only did they give me a quiet room at a special patient family discount, but their minivan bus service took me to and from the hospital at all hours, once picking me up at 12:30 a.m., to bring me "home" to a very comfortable bed every one of my four evenings. The full and delicious continental breakfast gave me a great start every day, and I was amazed by the caring concern of the van drivers, front desk and housekeeping staff over the time of my stay. I noticed that business guests and sports teams staying there also received the same courtesy. Now my husband is well on the road to recovery, and the next time we fly out of Burlington on a vacation, we'll be sure to stay there the night before our early morning flight.

    « Great spot for a fall weekend. »

    We recently stayed at the Best Western Plus Inn and Conference Center in Burlington ,Vermont with the National Street Rod Association, for a three night stay, and I cannot say enough about the staff and accomodations at the hotel.

    « Worst night sleep! »

    Decided to travel to Burlington for a couple of days to enjoy the festivities on Front street and to climb Mt. Mansfield. The Best Western was a great location for all of our activities. The check-in went smoothly, ample parking and the room was lovely. Unfortunately, the paper thin walls in our section didn't make it easy to sleep. We were close to the outside doors and smokers came out at every hour of the night for a smoke and talked. The walls were so thin that I could hear their entire conversations. The first time I woke up I thought they were in our room! If not for this aspect, the Best Western was a nice hotel. Good choice of breakfast items and lovely surroundings.

    Although we only had a one night stay here (having to visit the St.Albans branch of Homeland Security 20 minutes away), the location was perfect, ample parking, more than adequate breakfast (often replenished pile of crispy bacon, & endless selfserve coffee-who could ask for more?), airconditioning that i wish i had at home, & such friendly and helful front desk staff. Altho we did not use it, the hotel is conveniently located on the free shuttle bus line to go to the beautiful downtown Church street and waterfront area, & there are also plenty of choices nearby for a bite to eat. Burlington is beautiful & i hope to go back someday when i will have more than a day to explore it. Would definately stay at best western again-good value & comfortable.

The staff is top notch and everyone you encounter will be helpful and courteous. The hotel is very conveniently located to the University of Vermont as well as downtown Burlington. I highly recommend this hotel and conference center when you are in the area!

    We bring our sports teams to Burlington several times a year, wouldn't stay anywhere else. Jeff Bushey the Group Sales Mgr is outstanding in setting up our stays. The Windjammer Restaurant and Upper Deck pub are excellent spots for lunch, dinner and after hours fun. Good food and drinks in the pub, and a chance to connect with all our sports team families, in a casual, laid back setting. Close to everything in Burlington, easy access.

    This hotel has a great location in Burlington, VT. Situated very close to University Mall, Traders Joe and other stores. 5 minutes drive from the universities and the center of town. The rooms are very nice, clean, have wifi and everything you need to enjoy for a stay away from home. The breakfast was great. The staff is very friendly and accommodating of your needs. If we are in the area we will definitely stay there again.

    We were here to move our daughter into UVM as a freshman. The front desk was extremely helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a typical hotel style buffet...nothing special but included in the price. There are much nicer meals to be enjoyed in the town of Burlington. Parking was easy and the outdoor pool was refreshing. This was a very quiet and comfortable stay and would return.

    We stayed here from August 23-26. Front desk attendants friendly, checking easy. Room, while a bit small, contained all of the essentials including refrigerator and microwave and was very clean. Near Centennial Field where my husband attended Vermont Lake Monsters games, UVM and other area attractions. Nice outdoor pool (inside pool also) with a newly added pool bar, which was great for catching an early evening cocktail and snack. Good breakfast with hot and cold items. The ladies work hard at keeping it clean and well stacked (there were several sports teams there!). Would stay here again if in the area.

    « Average accomodations but very nice staff. »

    The building is a little tired. Carpets are worn in places. Only one elevator and the building is sprawling so getting to your room can be a hike. There are several convenient entrances but you would need to take the stairs. Breakfast was average buffet affair but no waffle maker. Our room got stuffing in the middle of the night despite a constant cool temp setting on the a/c. Price was average for the area.

    « The Best Staff »

    This is a nice Best Western hotel; rooms are adequate and clean. Close to the airport and I-89. For me what sets it above expectations are the staff. Calling for reservations was pleasant and quick. Got lost inbound, (yeah, I did), and got immediate help from the front desk. The front staff was friendly, efficient and helpful, with good advice on dinner possibilities. Had a very early flight and the shuttle service got me there in plenty of time. Sounds like the way it should be, right? As opposed to some lodgings, this staff actually do it. And with a (genuine) smile :-) Free full breakfast, BTW. I'll be back . . .

    « Worst lodging experience of my life »

    The front desk personnel were utterly rude and condescending regarding pet policy. The hotel lists itself as 0.4 miles from city center but it's actually 2 miles away. Here's the bad: 1. Dog friendly rooms are FILTHY!!! The floors are sticky, nasty dog odor, filthy bathrooms, hair in the tub... 2. The pet friendly section is near the exit door where people smoke. It's nasty considering the low class clientele of this place. We couldn't sleep all night with people slamming the door constantly. 3. The breakfast is awful. The eggs are made of egg beaters, awful choices. Only the oatmeal is edible. The good: The outdoor pool is nice.

    Room was just OK, breakfast was good. Accessible rooms just not attractive or well thought out - located at farthest point in the entire hotel from the lobby.

We have had delicious eggs, pancakes, waffles and many other tasty items which help get our day started off on the right foot!

    We had a clean, comfortable room. We got a good night's sleep and a breakfast with ample selection of hot (homemade scrambled eggs) and ambient foods. The laundry was convenient for a mid-vacation washing. The hotel sells detergent and makes change for the machines. The hotel is easy to access from both the freeway and the airport. The landscaping is well maintained. The room A/C is a bit noisy but did not affect our sleep. We would stay here again.

    « Enjoyable Stay »

    Large property, smallish room, though very clean and comfortable. Found that the breakfast had improved over our last stay several years ago. Had a minor issue with the lack of parking after returning from a local show, in part due to several morons taking up two parking spaces for a single vehicle. We did end up finding a handicap spot (wife has MS and handicapped card) at an entrance quite a distance from our room, but we managed. Again, minor issue in an otherwise enjoyable stay.

    « Great stay-great value »

    We were in town visiting colleges and were very pleased with the hotel. The only two things that were not great was that the restaurant was overpriced and the door to our room did not latch properly unless we pushed/pulled on it tightly. This was a bit disconcerting as we did not realize this until we had been in the room for over 20 minutes - could have been bad if we didn't realize it and it happened when we went out.

    « Good location, clean, nice outdoor pool »

    Just 2 easy miles from downtown Burlington, close to the airport (free shuttle offered), indoor and outdoor pool (with a nice inner court location, away from noise and traffic), clean hotel, comfortable beds, prompt room service. Plenty of families with children. Only improvement would be the free breakfast (location and food types)- during the summer months, area gets crowded very quickly, and also the food is poor in quality- mostly over-processed danishes/ muffins/ cereals. Questionable quality of sausage patties/ and eggs. Could use more fresh fruit, better yogurt options. They also offer nightly warm chocolate chip cookies and milk- a nice touch, especially for kids. Overal, a good stay!

    « Had a great stay »

    This was a great Best Western. We stayed here for my husband to do the Vermont City Marathon and the prices/amenities were right for us. I expected a standard hotel, but it was surprisingly perfect. I would definitely stay again! - The room was one of the cleanest hotel rooms I've been in. I sometimes get skeeved out in hotel rooms, but I felt totally comfortable in this one. - Both the indoor and outdoor pools were nice with plenty of seating around them. They had cornhole by the outdoor pool. - They began serving breakfast early on the marathon day so that the runners had time to grab breakfast before taking the shuttle to the start line, which was really nice. We were trying to figure out what to do for breakfast since we were leaving so early, so it was great to have this taken care of. - They have nice outdoor areas. They had a nice patio where you could eat your breakfast. We also ordered dinner one evening and ate it on the patio. It was a nice touch on a warm May evening. There are also picnic tables and one night we ordered pizza. - COOKIES!!! Warm chocolate chip cookies every evening! - The Windjammer Restaurant was very good! Good prices and family friendly. Try the salad bar. - Good wifi. Often I find that hotel wifi can be spotty, but it was pretty solid here. - Easy location. Right off the highway and close to Church Street and Waterfront Park. Parking was plentiful. Great place to stay around Burlington. Good price, clean, and nice amenities - that's all we needed!

There's also a free airport shuttle, which was great for us since we didn't hand a car. Nice walk into town (about 1 1/2 miles) or just use Uber. Staff was so nice and helpful, and room was clean and comfortable. A great stay!

Breakfast was part of the room deal, but I didn't partake. If the crowds of people were any indicator of quality, it must have been good. Although the hotel is in "South Burlington," it is very convenient to downtown. I would definitely stay there again. Starbucks just beyond the hotel parking lot.

    « very decent hotel »

    We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Burlington. It's a nice hotel,with the layout maybe a bit confusing in the beginning, because when you think of room 311, you think it's on the 3rd floor, but it really isn't, it's on the second. But it's all mapped out well so you won't get lost. Check-in was fast and very friendly, room was not too big but good enough for 2 people. We had a room on the inside of the hotel looking at the outdoor pool, so it was very quiet (no traffic noise as the hotel is close to the highway). Room and bathroom were very clean too! Elevator was a bit slow at times, if you really need to hear one 'complaint'. On the upside, fresh cookies around 8 at night, and they were delicious! The AC unit was very close to one of the two beds, so if you don't like cold air on you all night, take the bed furthest away from the window. :) Breakfast was like at most chain hotels, it did the trick to get you started,but nothing special. For such a big hotel, the breakfast room (which is actually also the lobby) might be a bit small if the hotel is fully booked. Hotel has multiple entrances, which is nice if you got a room far away from the lobby! All in all it was a pleasant stay, and would stay here again, as it's only 10 minutes from downtown Burlington, and quite a bit cheaper than the downtown hotels.

    The weather was 93 and humid. The room was a haven. The AC was great. The mattresses wrapped you in pure love. The staff was wonderful. The indoor and outdoor pools looked beautiful, but the hallway was too stuffy to walk to the pool and the indoor pool was too warm to be refreshing. It was quiet at night, due to their 9 PM quiet policy, but a daytime nap was interrupted by children trying to break through our ceiling. Oh well. We had a fridge and microwave. TV was great. The hot breakfast was great...no cardboard waffles....real scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast, breads, bagels, cereals, great coffees, yogurt, fresh fruit. No complaints. We did not try the restaurant, but the menus and prices looked good.

    First impressions at check in: the front desk staff is professional, personable, helpful and warm. Ruthie was so nice and helpful when I checked in. The hotel overall is very attractive. Two swimming pools, indoor and outdoor. Our room although a little small, (one queen bed) had a great rate and is spotless, with the most comfortable mattress I ever slept on. I prefer one bed and saving money on the room rate. The tub surround had an attractive, stone-look tile. The breakfast was exceptional if you are a healthy eater. Almond milk, organic steel cut oatmeal and the usual offerings for a Best Western hotel. I checked out the restaurant and will definitely eat there. Again the staff was very nice. The waiter, I think his name is Dillon or Daryl, was so nice he answered question and asked the chef some of my questions. The young hostess was sweet and professional. I loved that there was grass fed beef burgers and free range chicken on the menu. I will definitely stay at the BW + Windjammer Inn whenever I am in the area. I travel for work and our home office is in Colchester, VT so I will be coming regularly. Great Job staff!

    « Average Hotel »

    I use to stay at Best Westerns exclusively which is how I climbed their rewards ladder. However due to inconsistent quality concerns from property to property I have started utilizing a different chain more frequently. However due to lack of availability in the area I wanted to stay and the location of this hotel I decided to spend a night here. Pros: Front desk personnel are friendly and efficient. I didn't eat breakfast but there was plenty of space and looked like a good variety of food. Plenty of parking and easy access. I didn't use the outdoor pool but it looked to be a good size and clean. Bathrooms were clean Cons: Room cleanliness was average. I prefer an extremely clean room which is why I placed it in the con section. Air conditioner was loud and didn't keep room cool. However I did tell this to the front desk staff at checkout and as I was walking out I heard them talking to maintenance to have it looked at so I give them credit for fixing this immediately. Conclusion:. This is what I have come to expect from Best Western. An average room at an average cost. This is a Best Western Plus which in my opinion barely meets the Plus expectations. It seems Best Western and Best Western Plus are becoming the same standard average budget hotels while their Premium hotels are the only consistent quality hotels in the Best Western chain. I wouldn't rule out a return trip here but I will most likely look around for a different hotel when passing through this area.

    « It was ok, as are most hotels I've stayed at »

    Comfortable mattress, room was clean except for faint odor of, perhaps, mildew. Not a problem for me. Not sure deadbolt actually latched, but the regular lock did. I think I used the internet from my cell phone and it was fine, though I didn't spend a lot of time on it. Otherwise, everything in the room was in good shape and clean. The room was a little nicer than some hotel rooms, but that didn't matter all that much to me, as long as it was clean. Breakfast was usual carb fest except for sausage and bacon which were not as tasty as they could have been. Still tasted good, just not as good as I had hoped. If I am staying in that area in the future, I'll probably go back, unless I can find something cheaper.

    We had a very pleasant three-day stay at the Windjammer. The staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful. The hotel lobby, breakfast area and the room were all clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. Our room was on the third floor and was very quiet, the bed was great, and the temperature was well controlled. An added bonus is the on-site restaurant, the Windjammer, is one of the best in Bennington. See the restaurant reviews for details. As mentioned in other reviews, the hotel is hard to find because it is well set back from the highway, and the Best Western sign is tiny. If you are arriving from the Interstate it will be on the left about 0.2 mi. into town. Turn left at the traffic light between the Sunoco station and Starbucks.

    I usually stay with another hotel brand but decided to give best western a try since they're across the street from another hotel I've stayed at but a better price point. I was pleasantly surprised. Beds were comfortable bathroom was large enough for needs and table and chairs were just the right size for 2. Pool looks great outside but weather didn't work for us. Great location a few minutes from Burlington attractions and the cookies at night were a good break. Breakfast had variety of selections and was just enough to get us going for the day. Thanks Best Western. The only issue I have is that I saw someone refilling a water bottle at the drink machine - I know Vermont encourages refillable water bottles but bottle drinking spouts shouldn't touch the dispenser - other than that everything else was to our liking.

    Good location for the price and the room, lobby were very clean. I think it is an older hotel because wood floors creak. We stayed in room 217 and could hear people above whenever they were walking in their room - the ceiling, their floor squeaked. The room we had was 1 bed, so was a bit small, but still was fine for us. Breakfast was the standard you find - eggs, meat, juice, coffee, yogurt, breads, muffins, etc. Free, plenty of parking. Easy access to Williston road and about 5-10 minutes from downtown Burlington, easy to drive to. First time drove by it because there is just a small green sign out front along Williston rd. and you cannot see the hotel because it is in the back about 400 feet. Their restaurant Windjammer is rated #1 and so true as I discovered.

    I needed to check in Friday around noon, as I was getting married that night. I called about a month before to inform them. They put my room at the top of the cleaning list. When I called that morning, I was told my room was ready (at about 10:00). They went above and beyond to make sure it would be ready so that I had enough time to get ready. As for the hotel, it was fantastic. It was very clean from top to bottom. I had two rooms rented, a standard two queen sized bed room and a Jr. suite. Both were clean. The suite was well worth the extra cost for me and my wife. There was plenty of room in this suite and I would most likely book that style room again for my next stay. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our room, the hotel and our overall experience. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone in need of a good place to stay at a reasonable price.

    « Nice Rooms, very hard to find the main entrance and questionable food preparation. »

    The first thing you notice about this Best Western in Williston South Burlington VT is that it is hard to find off Williston Rd. This Best Western is hidden behind its restaurant which is facing the roadway, so we spent a few unnecessary minutes trying to locate the main building, which when we arrived in the evening was totally hidden from view. When we finally found the building and the parking lot at the back of the building I had to trudge around and find the main entrance which was also hidden and finally after walking into the restaurant I was able to locate a manager who took us to a side entrance that was locked. This time was approx 9.30pm.. So they do not seem to have signage to the main entrance. Finally the entrance was unlocked and I walked into to book the room we had reserved that day. The room we ordered had two king beds and was comfortable for our needs with free wi-fi, though cellular telephone reception was very very poor...just one bar. The room we booked was also very quiet. After we settled in three of us went to the restaurant to order some food. The restaurant was closed, so we ordered some comfort food from the bar. The service was good but there may have been some issues with some of the meat items. For the following morning three of my group woke up with upset stomachs of varying degrees. Best Western does offer a free complimentary breakfast which was adequate, Overall a mixed experience and the person on day/evening reception could have been more helpful. Would I go back? Unlikely, unless service and building facilities are improved.

    Most hotels were sold out July 2, 2016 bolt the Best Western still had a few rooms and was under $200 so we decided to stay there. When got there at about 10:30 PM took about 15-20 minutes to check in since only one person working dark and he was helping someone else first and had to stop a few times to answer phone calls. In room bed and pillows were very comfortable. Room was clean and showers was very nice. Free breakfast was over crowded due to size of hotel and kept running out of food and bumping into people trying to get food. Overall, decent hotel, nice room, but breakfast could have more space and be better organized.

    « Stay was OK »

    Pros: Decent location near some restaurants and shopping along with a short drive to downtown Burlington and other local attractions, plus near the airport; reasonable price with decent breakfast included each morning in the lobby (continental items plus some hot items like sausage, bacon, eggs); milk & cookies in the lobby each evening; two nice pools - one indoor and one outdoor; microwave and fridge in each room along with nice TV with decent channel selection; free Wi-Fi (although it didn't work well with my iPhone, but the rest of my family didn't have issues with it). There's a restaurant on site, which I've heard is quite good, but it was too pricey for us (being a family of 4), so we didn't eat there. Cons: Our room was very, very small - probably the smallest 2-bed room I've ever stayed in (for a higher cost I'm you could get a bigger room); one light fixture didn't work because it had a broken compact fluorescent bulb in it, which is pretty dangerous to leave there (made me wonder about maintenance); room and most of hotel could use some updating - some things look worn and dated; the room smelled when we first entered it after being out each day (like must or mildew - it went away after the HVAC ran more - although it too had a bit of a smell at times - but still was present); the floors creak when you walk on them, which would be annoying I think in the lower floors (we were on the top floor, fortunately); had numerous problems with the room key - couldn't get into the room when we first got there and then another time a few days later; difficult to shower our young children because the toilet was right next to the bathtub/shower (bathroom very small). Bottom Line: It served its purpose, and for the price was ok, but you may be able to do better. While the pools are very nice, I think some work needs to go into the guest rooms and hallways to give the place a brighter, more modern look and feel.

    Nice spacious clean rooms, lots of parking spots. When you are looking for this hotel, it is hidden in the "second row" and slightly confusing to find where the lobby is. Very convenient located within a short distance you are on all interesting spots

Two swimming pools (inside and outside) are available. Our room had 2 double beds. Tub surround was tiled with multi-colored brown tile which looked very nice.

    « What a saving grace this hotel was! »

    I was at Burlington's airport waiting around for a plane that finally got cancelled. It was already evening, and I was one of the last from my flight to get the bad news I wasn't going anywhere that night. The woman at the information desk steered me toward this hotel as one that was close, with a shuttle that could come get me and return me at four the next morning. WOW. I was so well treated, given a great rate, the person on the phone and then at the desk was incredibly kind and friendly, the room was big and airconditioned and clean and quiet... I hardly experienced the hotel, alas, but everything I could see seemed first rate-nice pool, for instance. If I ever have a reason to need a room in Burlington for longer than a few brief hours of sleep, I'll be back. Free wifi and coffee maker in room were also very nice to have. And even with my super early departure, there was a bit of breakfast in a to-go bag I could take, and the cereal and a few other things available to grab as well. THANK YOU BEST WESTERN BURLINGTON for easing a hassled situation.

    Even though I booked this hotel online on a blind basis at a greatly discounted rate, they gave us a very comfortable suite. The hotel is just on the other side of I-89 from UVM and downtown Burlington. The place is well maintained, the staff is friendly, and the free hot breakfast is more than adequate. My only concern would be that there is only one elevator in the entire four story hotel, and I wonder if this would be a problem if the hotel were full.

    The outside of the hotel is attractive. The check-in and out was speedy and the folks friendly. Not sure what happened the night before we arrived, but the staff was drying out the second floor carpet. They worked diligently and we couldn't notice was the issue was later in the day. The downside for me was the fact that the room was small as was the bathroom. It was fairly cozy for just the two of us. The towels in the bathroom were nice. The bed was firm and there were several very nice fluffy pillows. I highly recommend leaving the air on to block out sound. We could here folks walking in the room above. In the morning we could hear someone sawing and working in the room next to us. I slept fairly well the one night we stayed. The breakfast was the usual but hot and good. The staff worked hard to keep it stocked: eggs, sausage, cereal, yogurt, a few types of very good bagels, juice etc. The wifi worked fine for me. On the plus side there was a Keurig machine in the room that my wife used along with a microwave and small fridge. Overall, it was a decent stay.

    Nice hotel, clean . Needs serious sound proofing in ceiling and walls. Could hear every move the people made, haven't been able to get much sleep, since our next door neighbor decided to come in late every night ( after 1 a.m.) make a lot of noise ( slam doors, laugh, talk loudly, not to mention the wild sex party). Other than the noisy people, the hotel was fine. The indoor pool needs surveillance, although the rules are very clear, people still come in with food and beverages! The staff was OK. We've seen a lot better from Best Western and were expecting the same high standards, to that extent, we're disappointed and would think twice before choosing this hotel again!

The hotel is right off the highway and is a very short drive to the UVM campus and downtown Burlington. The two double room I had was updated with modern bedding. The room had a flat screen tv and small refrigerator. The bathroom had enough space and everything was clean. The hallways were a bit worn and the floor level arrangement was confusing (floors 1 and 3 are one half of the hotel, 2 and 4 the other), but it did not detract from the quality of the stay. Expanded continental breakfast was included and there is a restaurant on the premises, although it does not connect to the hotel. Wifi was also included.

    « Second stay, good place »

    While this Best Western is a bit more expensive than others, some of the amenities may make it worthwhile. We used the well equipped fitness room (but they should move the weight machine away from the wall so all functions are possible), the pool (nice and warm but a bit small for laps) as well as had dinner at the attached restaurant/pub. It's in a good location, close to the airport (no noise issues for us) and just a few minutes from the Burlington waterfront park. Breakfast options were above average for a free buffet, including fresh fruit, yogurt etc. Workers renovating the floor we were on left carts of equipment and open cans of paint in the hallway in the morning, which was unpleasant and somewhat difficult to maneuver around. They should open a window to vent the odors from the paint and sealant that was detectable in the hallway.

    « Comfortable hotel on the outskirts of Burlington »

    This is the perfect place to stay when you visit Burlington: a not-too-far walk from downtown, great on-site restaurant, delicious full breakfast, spacious rooms, and plenty of parking. I stay here twice a year: for skiing and the Vermont City Marathon. Both bring a ton of people to Burlington, so I stay here, park my car, and don't move it for the weekend. You can walk to most places or take the complimentary shuttle. A full breakfast, including freshly-baked waffles, eggs, and plenty of other options, is included with your stay. They also provide free cookies during evening check-in. You don't even have to leave the property for a great dinner: the windjammer has one of Burlington's best restaurants on premises. The hotel doesn't feel like a chain hotel, as it has a light oak interior and other touches of New England. It also has a great outdoor and indoor pool. Do yourself a favor and stay here when you are visiting Burlington!

    « Pleasant stay close to Burlington »

    The model lies on the main road out of Burlington just beyond the U of VT. & the interstate. It is set well back from the road so noise is not a problem - but you might miss it if you speed by the entrance! Hotel is well maintained. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is good example of the ubiquitous "motel hot breakfast" (mystery eggs, sausage, cereal, breads, muffins justice coffee. etc. We had a light early dinner at the bar attached to the property - and were favorably impressed. A nice selection of local beer on draught and good food selections that went above and beyond pub-fare. Overall a very pleasant stay.

    The staff were wonderful, the room clean and the shuttle service to/from the airport was especially appreciated. Although we didn't use all of the amenities available on this trip, they offer everything..the pool, workout room, continental breakfast, and there is an excellent restaurant bar (Windjammer Restaurant) just outside their door. We have stayed here several times and the experience has always been great!

    Room heating/cooler system is dated and makes lots of noise. Breakfast was horrible, food wasn't good, they staff didn't refill the buffet and there wasn't even enough space for everyone to sit down. People had to share tables, use the couches in the lobby or take the food to their rooms. The only good thing about it was the guy at the front desk that checked us in, he was very friendly and helpful.

    « A Decent Place »

    Great location, close to I91, UVM and Burlington Center. An awesome pub and restaurant right on the property along with a very friendly and helpful staff for a fair price made this a good stay. However, the rooms are a little small and only have double beds which are comfortable, but small for us larger framed guests. it is apparent they have done what they can in updating the rooms, but please remove the stained carpeting. Also, a tip here; put the fan on to drown out any noisy late night guests traversing the hallways after a night on Church St. We didn't use the indoor pool or fitness center, but both appeared clean and up to date. Free breakfast was good with plenty of choices too.

    The convenient location and responsive staff made our trip a successful one. Unfortunately, our schedule was a little tight, so we did not get to take advantage of the hotel's offer to sit back and enjoy the complimentary chocolate chip cookies in the evening in the cafe. I would highly recommend the hotel for both business or leisure travel. As it turned out, I was taking care of family business while my husband worked out of the hotel for the day. It was a busy time, but a hassle-free stay. Appreciated the friendly staff.

    « Not understanding the good reviews.... »

    We stayed at this hotel the night prior to a 5:10am flight from Burlington International. We didn't arrive until about 11:30pm. The front desk agent was eating a pizza while we were trying to check in, which I found completely rude. We got to our room and I went to take a shower, but there were no towels. I didn't call for any because it made me wonder if the bathroom had even been cleaned. The bed was extremely stiff and made for a terrible 3 hours of sleep. We left to get to the airport early (around 3:30) and the same front desk agent rudely told us she couldn't check us out because we were too early as if we were completely oblivious to the fact that it was 3:30am..... The only reason I rated "poor" instead of "terrible" was because the location to the airport was awesome. We got there at 3:35am.

    If you are staying in the Burlington Vermont area,give the Best Western a try. Rooms are competitively priced and a very helpful staff nice add on, the warm cookies in the lobby at 8 are a nice touch. The restaurant next door has an excellent selection at a fair price. After a long day on the road staying here made it a little better.

    Wonderful, consistently good experience. Great bar/restaurant right next door only adds to the stay. Breakfast is the same every morning, but has plenty of diversity for anybody--the chocolate chip cookies at 8PM are something to look forward to. The fitness room is only average. It would be ideal if they added a set of dumbbells. I typically come to VT with the expectation of a good beer. The Upper Deck bar (attached to the hotel) never fails to deliver on this end!

    « Very nice and reasonably price hotel/restaurant in South Burlington BUT...... »

    We visited Burlington Vermont in February and based on price decided to stay in South Burlington (a short ride outside Burlington proper) as the hotels in Burlington were noticeably more expensive. We chose this hotel. The desk staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel itself was well positioned as far as location goes. It had a lovely large pool which we took advantage of and a really nice exercise room which we also took advantage of. There was a bar and restaurant within the complex but we went to neither. The rooms were very nice and worth the price. Cleaning staff did a very good job. ONLY negative is that there was a noticeable noise factor within the halls and in the adjoining rooms. I guess its dependent on the courtesy of the people who are in the rooms that are adjourned to yours whether or not they are noisy or not. I would think however, in a hotel situation, people would be more considerate of the other people on the floors. Constant closing and slamming of doors is not very courteous at all hours. Once people are settled in however it was quiet. Would come here again but ask to have a room with no one above me and also limited rooms on either side.

    « Nicely furnished rooms, a good option near the airport »

    I liked the room with its nice wood floors and modern light wood furniture. It was well equipped with a fridge, microwave, and excellent t.v. The 24-hour airport shuttle service is very well-managed and a major plus for the hotel. Free breakfast was convenient, and the excellent Windjammer restaurant was a short walk outside the hotel.The problems I encountered dealt with noise, and I considered giving the hotel an average rarting because of it. Probably due to the wood floors, there was noise from people walking in the room above me. Also, the heating/cooling system seemed to recycle every few minutes even when I turned the heater to a very low temperature -- so there was frequent noise and blowing air that I found annoying. And several times I heard staff members outside my door talkng on a loud walkie-talkie system.On balance I liked the hotel and would have an open mind about staying here again despite the noise issues, especially because of the friendly staff and the excellent shuttle service.

    Nice hotel, average size room, both room and hotel were very clean. The hotel does need more elevators! A big plus is it is close to the airport, also close to downtown Burlington, University of Vermont and hospitals. Reception staff was very helpful. We bought some local VT cheese to take to a friend and kept it in the refrigerator in our room, but keeping it cold to take home was going to be a problem. We had an insulated bag with small freezer packets but needed a place to freeze the packets. The people at Reception said they were happy to keep the packets in the freezer until we were ready to leave for the airport (which was 4am), there was no problem getting the freezer packets that morning. The hotel has a complimentary airport shuttle 24 hours a day - pick-up and drop off is upon request only. My husband used the service the evening before our flight to return our rental car to the airport, that saved us some time in the morning since we had a 6:30am flight. We took the shuttle the morning of our flight and didn't have to deal with returning a rental car! One night we ate at the Windjammer restaurant, which is connected to the hotel, it was nice to have a good restaurant we could walk to and not have to drive. The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere, is quieter than most restaurants, and the food was very good. I had the lobster tail which was excellent!! There is a salad bar with a large variety of choices.

My only complaint (which they tried to resolve) was the desk chair. Not comfortable and too low. They brought me a pillow to sit on. Other than that, the room was nice, breakfast was good. Will stay again !! Loved calling down to the restaurant, placing my food order and them calling back the room phone to let me know it was ready. Worked out well?.I was not familiar with the area and did't want to venture out.

    « Solid All Around - Excellent Location & Value »

    This is well-located in South Burlington and a good value. The room I stayed in was a King Suite, well-furnished, with a fridge and a microwave, two HDTVs, and very fast wifi. The AC/Heat system was active in both rooms of the suite and brand new. The decor was lame but the rest of the room was obviously recently refurbished. The restaurant and pub next door are excellent. There is also a Starbucks next door if you need one, and a shopping mall a mile away. It is 3 miles from the airport and 3 miles from UVM. I would definitely stay here again.

    « A nice hotel close to the University of Vermont »

    We were welcomed to the hotel by nice desk staff and everyone seemed helpful. A great restaurant on site with a very good salad bar. My only criticism would be a kind of a noisy heater/air conditioner. It cycled on and off during the night.

    Nice place but check to see if there will be a boys youth team staying at the same time and let them know you don't want to be anywhere near them. The staff was nice about changing our room even though we had a pet, but if there is a youth team there, don't even think about the pool!

    « Great place to stay in Burlington »

    We spent two nights in this hotel for our weekend trip to Burlington. It is very clean and comfortable, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the location is fabulous. Breakfast was included, which made the experience even nicer. Room price was affordable. The only complaint was that room walls are thin so we could easily hear people walking down the hallway early in the morning. However, the location in general is quiet, so it's not really a big deal.

    for the price and amenities this hotel is a great value and it's in a good, quiet, centrally located area. It's only a few minutes from downtown Burlington and from the airport. The adjacent restaurant offers a great variety of dishes and a good salad bar.

    « Clean, comfortable and the price is right! »

    This was my second time staying at the Windjammer in S. Burlington, and liked it both times. Very reasonable rates, very attentive staff, nice breakfast buffet for guests, and great pub food. My friends told me that the big restaurant is quite good. I stayed in a junior suite with a rate of $65. We're not in NYC anymore, toto! Also, very well maintained, although a bit on the dated side.

    « Decent place but outdated decor and just fine rooms »

    The rooms were ok, but not so spacious. The food was decent and nothing special. The service was good but not extra friendly. The only really bad thing you can say is that the hotel looked like it hasn't been renovated since the 80's. Overall, nice stay, especially for that price.

    « Very nice stay »

    This is a fantastic hotel - clean, neat rooms, helpful staff, and the free breakfast was quite good. We stayed here for a hockey tournament and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was conveniently located to everything we were doing in Burlington. Overall, amazing quality, especially for the price.

    Nice staff pleasant location, but hotel is built with very thin walls, floors and doors that provide little quiet in the room. Breakfast is standard fare, but kept warm and filled. Hotel able to accommodate full occupancy well.

    « Well thought out property »

    We stayed two nights at the Windjammer to attend a family function. The room was pleasant and quiet. The front desk staff was very helpful. When I checked in I forgot to verify that I had asked for the AAA rate. I also had a Best Western gift card to deduct from the bill. I was able to take of both of these things very easily the next morning.

    « Great option for a family »

    I was in Burlington with our three adult children and wanted to all stay together. The suite at the Best Western Windjammer was perfect. We had space to sit together as well as separate sleeping options. The two bathrooms was a great bonus. The room was spacious, the furniture comfortable and a fridge for our wine.

    « Not quiet »

    We just needed an inexpensive place close to the airport and our son-in-law recommended this. However, the floors and walls were not built for good soundproofing and we could hear people walking above us, and the people in the rooms on either side of us. Otherwise it was fine for a close, inexpensive place

    « Excellent choice of Hotel »

    every time I go to Burlington, Best Western Windjammer is my favorite. Staff is extremely kind and calm. Location, Location, Location. Near highways, easy to come in and out. Very quiet. A plus: the Windjammer restaurant for dinner is more than excellent. Service and food are very good and the $10 discount for this restaurant is very appreciated when you are a guest of the hotel. Great stay even for pleasure than business. Do not hesitate and book.

    Nice clean hotel. Rooms are in great shape. Staff is very helpful and pleasant. The refrigerator and microwave were spotless. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise as were the chocolate chip cookies. About the only "complaint" would be......I wish the sign out front stood out better. If you are new to this hotel ..... keep a sharp lookout as there are a lot of signs and this one does not jump out at you.

It's also near UVM and a great place to bring family members for a weekend get away. One can enjoy swimming or going to the movies.

    « Very good value; pets welcome »

    This is the first time I stayed at a hotel with my dog, and I feared we would be seen as a liability. I was very pleased to find that the front desk staff welcomed us, admired my silly old dog, and made every effort to be sure we were comfortable and knew where everything was. They are prepared to monitor any problems and not allow your pet to disturb the other guests, which I also appreciate. Overall, this hotel is an excellent value, close to downtown, and has a good free breakfast and very nice restaurant on the premises. Very clean, with all the amenities you could need. My only complaint is that the room was not well sound-proofed from the hall noise.

    « A very comfortable place to stay »

    From the start, our experience was excellent. We got the feeling that the staff really cared we were there. On check-in, we were greeted warmly and told our room was in a quiet location as we had requested. The room was very clean and well laid out. The bed was extremely comfortable which meant a great night's sleep! The only suggestion we would make is for the hotel to advise guests if a tour group is in house. Breakfast was fine the next morning, but it was very difficult to find a place to sit. Had we known a tour was staying there, we might have eaten a little earlier or later to get around the seating challenge. This would not deter us from staying here again, though. It is a very comfortable place to stay, close to the interstate and the University of Vermont and a short, easy drive to downtown Burlington and the waterfront.

    « Good Hotel at the price point »

    This is a nice, clean hotel located just off I89 in South Burlington - very convenient for travel. The room choices are somewhat limited (2 double or a queen) and on the small side, but well appointed and laid out. The continental breakfast was an appropriate start to the morning with a reasonable variety. The hotel is connected with the Windjammer Restaurant next door, which serves a good selection (variety and price) of food.

    « Good value and good night's sleep. »

    My wife and I stayed here one night. The place was clean, looked nice, didn't have any bad smells, and the room was quiet for a nice night's sleep. Didn't deal with staff much but they were friendly at check in & out. Breakfast was nice, with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, coffee, tea, muffins, french toast, and juices. The location was easy to get to from the interstates and made getting places easy. Overall it was nice reasonably priced. Would stay there again in the future.

    « Ok but pricey. »

    Paid $179 for a very average room. It was clean. I had to have heating unit replaced upon arrival as it was inop. It was done pleasantly and very quickly. The maintenance man was great. The real disappointment came after I was refused a late checkout because there were already 8 or 10 rooms that had requested the late check out. I was only asking for an hour. It was the first time I was ever refused late check out anyplace I had stayed, regardless of occupancy that night. The restaurant was very good as both service and food excelled.

    « Excellent....Excellent! »

    This was the best stay I've experienced this year. Travelling extensively with my son for college/university options out West and on the East coast, we've stayed in many hotels and various chains etc. This particular trip I took my dogs...Vermont, leaves, walks.... The staff went over and above to accommodate my requests and the room we were assigned was the perfect location. I was able to take my dogs straight out of the room and hotel to walk without disturbing other guests and them not disturbing us! The rooms are fantastic - so simple, but everything included that you could possibly need - the TV along with the comfy bed and fixtures was excellent quality and all well thought out. Being tall, I really appreciated the accommodating shower heads! What I really noticed that set this location apart, was how quiet it was - it is just off the highway and less than a minute on to the main routes but you did not hear the traffic at all, it's tucked away at the back and allows you to think you are not just off the main drag like most of the other well know hotel brands were. As I drove into Burlington and saw the other hotels I was considering prior to booking this location, I was SO relieved when I drove to this Best Western and very much appreciated all they have done to create a perfect experience for their guests. The staff are so accommodating and helpful...and they really mean it too! The breakfast was fully stocked and had a good range to select from. I had the best nights sleep in a long time and I felt the value/experience I recieved for the price I paid was exceptional - and that is comparing it to all the other hotels we have stayed in this year. If you are looking at staying in the Burlington, Vermont area, and want to feel some space, quiet and yet a convenient location with a quality room full of all the desired required touches - this is the place to go. Great peaceful energy and all enhanced and encouraged by the wonderful staff. For the dog lovers on the road looking for the perfect place - this is it! You have immediate access to grass without having to worry about traffic or travelling to a 'grass area' (if you stay more in town...you will!). There are some trails over by the Sheraton Hotel called the Centiennial trails? I think....if you want to really take a local hike, this is the doggy place and then there is a dog park (that I didn't go to but is localish) call twin tails (two whale tails), I forget but they will know at the hotel reception if you ask and they will give you directions. Rooms are exceptional for easy access for your dogs to get in /out of car and into hotel - parking right by the exit doors. They even gave my dogs a bone and bag when we arrived - the bone was good quality too! or so my dogs told me as they ate them - fussy eaters!

    Let me start with how friendly and nice all the staff were, it was lovely talking and doing business with them. The place was immaculate, from the lobby, to the halls to the rooms we stayed. Loved the cookies before bed, the fitness center and pools were great and the breakfast was kept full and clean. Only wished the restaurant was physically hooked to the hotel as it gets rather cold at night but the restaurant was delightful as well.

    The hotel is conveniently located to the University of Vermont, Champlain College and College of St. Michael's. The hotel offers park, sleep & fly for those individuals needing to get to Burlington Airport. We have been coming here for years. The staff is friendly and rooms are clean. They have upgraded the breakfast area to provide more seating. They removed make your own waffles : ( but have replaced it with scrambled eggs, mini cheese omelets, bacon/ham and French toast. They still serve warm chocolate chip cookies at 8PM and there's always a line waiting for them. The Windjammer Restaurant is just outside of the hotel. I would recommend this hotel.

    While we own our own motel in Vermont-it was time to come home for my daughter's wedding and find a place to stay for the weekend, Being a holiday weekend I wasn't sure what to expect for a room or service and was so pleased to have found the Best Western Plus Windjammer. From the time of my arrival and all the hassles of missing luggage from the airlines till our departure, the staff was courteous, fun , professional and attentive. Our rooms (suite) were perfect for my family and the service and attentiveness of the housekeeping staff is to be commended. Breakfast each morning was HOME COOKED vs the processed look and taste and the kitchen staff was excellent making sure their was always fresh, hot food available right up until the time it closed. Windjammer restaurant on the property is a huge plus and the location of this hotel is awesome. Courteous, helpful and cheerful staff made us feel right at home KUDO"S to this management team---YOU GOT IT RIGHT! in customer service..... I'll be back when I go back home to Burlington again!

    The price and location were right. Accommodations were worn. Lots of noise from dogs barking, children running, footsteps overhead (we were on the 1st floor). Breakfast was a challenge since there was a bus tour staying who took over the buffet & seating. Would have been nice for the management to let other patrons know when the tour was leaving so we could have timed our breakfast.
