Stayed for one night. The owner was very polite, gave us all the information we needed and offered us coupons for nearby attractions. The room was very clean and big. The room has full hd flat screen tv which is just great. Try to order the rooms in the back so you won't be disturb by the cars and trucks...

Stayed here with the family while visiting the Burlington/Shelburne area. Immaculately clean motor court. Fellow at the front desk was welcoming and gave us info on area attractions and coupons. Yes, the coupon for continental breakfast only covered coffee or juice and english muffin, but they credited us the value when we ordered full breakfasts. Nice to have a refrigerator...

We stayed at the T-Bird due to the fact that a major athletic event in Burlington made finding a hotel room for a wedding difficult. The prices of the hotels were quite high due to demand, which I understand, but the high price made the lack of basic amenities such as an iron, particuarly egregious. Pros: Super clean, comfy queen...

Our family - Dad, Mom, two kids (15 and 12) - stayed for a night during a recent trip through Vermont, and we couldn't have been happier. This place is very clean, and obviously the owners have made a commitment to keeping it up. It's definitely been upgraded. The pool area is very clean and welcoming. The rooms included flat...

Stayed at this motor inn by chance many years ago, and came back because of the service and cleanliness. The pool is quiet and immaculate. Our room was in the back part of the motel and was quiet and again as others have said, immaculate condition, they have updated the rooms since we have been there and free wi-fi also....

Other reviews said the rooms are very clean, and they're right. Some reviews said the beds are uncomfortable, but we didn't find that to be the case at all. Very comfortable. Room was quiet and the place is well maintained overall. Room included a voucher for breakfast at the restaurant nearby, which was fine, albeit busy. South of Burlington, but...

I chose this motel because I wanted to try a non-chain, independent place. I liked it and it grew on me during my two night stay. It's is super clean and the retro look is cool, in a laidback kind of way. The pool is nice and it is very quiet. However, I would have liked to have had a...

We spent one night here based on good reviews on tripadvisor. It was all that others said. Very clean, cordial owners/workers, reasonable price. I only wish that they supplied coffee pots in the room or coffee in the lobby. The restaurant next door didn't open until 7:30, after we've been up for at least 2 hours! I did ask ahead...

We stayed at the T-Bird after reading the good reviews on Craigslist. I wanted to see if it was really as clean as so many reviewers said. I was really impressed. Whoever is in charge of cleaning and maintenance at this Inn should teach a class and share their understanding of how to run a GREAT hotel with very average...
