Make no mistake -- it's old, worn, and dated. However, it was clean, conveniently located, and cheap. In fact, it was only 1/3 of the price of the chain hotels! But there's a reason it's inexpensive though, it's old. We were only there to sleep, so it was fine. Normally, I get "skeeved out" easily in hotels, but the Ethan... More

Old and in need of updating. The room smelled when we first entered - I though like urine. Hubby said just musty. We opened all doors and windows and it seemed to get better. (Thank goodness it was warm outside as we were able to leave them open all night.). Huge spots on the carpet which was disgusting. However, the... More

Family owned and operated, everyone was very nice. Room is comfortable and easy, no frills but we were out exploring all day so spent minimal time in the room. Perfectly clean and accessible to Burlington activities. Nearby the venue Higher Ground which is convenient.

The Ethan Allen motel is a mom and pop motel like we stayed in when I was a kid. These have become much more rare. EA has basic furniture, is not elegant, but the wifi, fridge and flat screen TV worked well and the couch and door lock were new. I have stayed there quite a few times. Dave Merrill... More

We got this room as it was the only hotel with availability during Columbus weekend. A definite "fixer upper "! If you're looking for a cheap, clean place to lay your head, this is the place. Don't expect much more than that. The esthetics were a bit dreary and worn. The gentleman at the front desk was friendly and helpful.

I've been in clean, basic mom and pop motels and that's what my wife and I were hoping to find here. At $85, the price was right. The gentleman at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The room was clean but threadbare and the TV didn't work -- which was a bummer, because we could have used it to... More

I found the property acceptable on prior stays, but was assigned an unacceptable room during a recent visit. I got a different room upon request for a modest increase in rate. Beware that not all units are in similar condition. I couldn't "unsee" the first room and was so grossed out that I thought about checking out early to move... More

The owner is very friendly. The room was super clean and actually included a small kitchenette, not just a microfridge unit--it actually had a stove! The TV sported numerous cable channels, not the flimsy 10-channel Direct TV as many motels do nowadays. The rooms are also very quiet. This is a great place to stay! The rates can be slightly...

A basic mom & pop motel that has not been updated. It looked clean but didn't feel like it because it is so worn and dated. The staff was friendly and helpful. If it was remodeled and renewed, it would be a more enjoyable stay. Our room was towards the back off the highway so it was quiet and the... More
