The room was very comfortable. It has a tv, microwave and refridgerator. The hospitality is excellent. There was a basket of apples at the front desk and a very warm welcome. This is an excellent place to stay in Burlington, Vermont.

To start with, know what to expect. This is a classic 1940s style motor court motel. Rooms are fairly small and it's right on the highway so there is some road noise. The upside is that the place is impeccably clean and well maintained. I can't say as much for some of the big boys. If simplicity and some retro...

Clean, friendly, convenient. That says it all. Oh did I mention affordable? Would go back again, much better than the chain hotels. It was chilly and we did to eat to use the pool but had no problem with road noise like other rosters mentioned. Make the break, leave the chains. You'll be happy you did

We attended the VT Cheesemaker's festival at Shelburne Farm, visited our granddaughter in Burlington (south) and spent time at the Shelburne Museum. So this motel was at the perfect location and reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly. There is a nice little restaurant within walking distance; the motel gave us vouchers for free continental breakfasts. Access to Burlington was...

We went to Burlington Vermont for the weekend. Every place we looked was booked. T-bird is in shelbourne which is a 15-20 minute drive to Burlington. An easy straight line. The room was clean and spacious. There's also air conditioning. Ask for a room in the back which is further from the street facing a park. It comes with a...

We stayed in the rooms in the back of the motel. The rooms are large and there are picnic tables next to the parking area. The lawn is well groomed and it felt park-like. My daughters loved the pool. It is very convenient to the Shelburne Museum.

We had searched for days to find a motel/hotel under $200 that had good reviews and wasn't outrageous, since we flew in during the evening into Burlington Vt and just needed a place to sleep for the night. After researching for several days, tried to book the Motel 6, but they were sold out. Finally decided on the T-Bird Motor...

My husband and I just stayed here this week on an overnight visit to the area. Owners were very gracious and accommodating. When I made the reservation over the phone, per our conversation she told me to stop by when we got to the area and they might be able to check us in early and to pick up a...

We stayed one night in August. We called to say we would be arriving late and they said they could leave the key under the mat! We found the room to be very clean. A/C worked fine. And they gave us discount tickets to the Shelburne Museum which saved us a lot.

My 9 year old daughter and I stayed here for two nights on a mini vacation. The manager is awesome, he is extremely helpful and runs a very tight ship. Our room was immaculate and the grounds were very well maintained. The pool was clean and had a beautiful fountain next to it. We had an ice chest right outside...
