Nice apartment but stupid policies

Posted Apr 17, 2016
Guests have no say in what they want. They want to enter your room every other day for "cleaning" purposes. If you decline it they will say it is the hotel policy and that you have to accept it. Why would they want to check on your room so much ? So when I made sure I said to 2 different ladies at the counter that the housekeepers could get in but not make beds or touch pillows, I had the pleasure to find the bedroom with lights on and the bed made...

Thank you for choosing Handy Suites-Colchester for your accommodation needs. Guest’s opinions allow us the opportunity to see our property, and the services we provide, from a unique and valuable perspective. We appreciate that you have taken the time to share your experience. Although it seems that you enjoyed your suite, I was sorry to hear that you felt you didn’t have a say in what you wanted. We strive to provide a home away from home for each and every guest and always want you to feel comfortable. For sanitary purposes, we find it necessary to access a guest room every other day to, at the very least, remove trash and replace wet towels. I can honestly say that the housekeeping protocols we have in place have been designed with the intention of providing a safe, clean, pleasant atmosphere with as little intrusion as possible. In your case, we were unable to access your room four days in a row out your five you stayed with us. I certainly apologize that your bed was made when you had requested it not be; that clearly was a miscommunication on our part. I have discussed it with our front desk and housekeeping team to prevent it from happening in the future. We hope you will give us another chance. Warmest Regards

Perfect stay if you're not picky

Posted Mar 8, 2016
This hotel is a bit older, but I wouldn't stay anywhere else myself. The value is great if you're just looking for a place to crash!

Quiet place just of I89 and close to Burlington

6 days. You have to go the Days Inn which is 2 buildings away to have the free breakfast that is included with the room.

Scared of Low Price

Posted Feb 17, 2016
Pros: It was so quiet and clean.
Cons: Ice machine
Location: There are so many things to see within 25 miles of this location. We are not winter outside people, and we had a lot of fun!
We were very skeptical about what we were getting ourselves into with the low price of this hotel. The hotel was very easy to find off the highway. The desk clerk was very friendly and answered all our questions with a smile. Still skeptical we opened the door to our room and we were pleasantly surprised. On the other side of the door was a very clean little apartment, with separate bedroom and bathroom. all appliances (stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher) were all clean and in working order. The kitchen was set up with two of everything (cups, plates, bowls and silverware). It also contained a toaster and pots and pans, along with other utensils. The one thing that impressed us the most, was how quiet this property was. With the exception of a few planes going over and a lone train, we didn.t really hear anything. The one thing they do not have is an ice machine. When I called to inquire about ice they were more than willing to call and get some from the hotel next door. They also gave us a coupon to get breakfast next door. Although they didn't have breakfast, they have coffee and donuts in the lobby. We will definitely use this hotel again and I would highly recommend it. Thanks for a great stay!!

perfect for extended stay

Posted Sep 20, 2015
With a living/kitchen room and separate bedroom, it was extremely comfortable. In a quiet neighborhood yet close to Burlington.

Second Time at Handy's

Posted Sep 2, 2015
Pros: The staff is so nice. It is good to be greeted by friendly people instead of grouchy desk attendants that hate their jobs.
Location: Convenient to the colleges without being right in the shadow. Easy access to/from the highway.
This was our second stay at this hotel. We originally picked it because it was affordable, and available on very busy weekend. But this trip we chose it because we knew we would be happy here. The owners have taken an older property and fixed it up so well that we will not stay anywhere else in Burlington (unless Handy's is full). It is quiet, rooms are large and comfy, and the staff is so friendly. Looking forward to Parents' Day at the college. We'll be back again!

Nothing really of note. The accommodations were OK. It was quiet except for the highway noise, we saw just one other guest in our two days there. When we arrived home the first night and could not remember how to unlock the door (it requires pressing buttons in combination and a specific order), our request for help was handled promptly.

Quiet stay

Posted Aug 5, 2015 on Hotels
We were only there for one night, it was quiet, cozy, clean. I liked the bedroom had a door from the sitting area. We were very pleased with the accommodation just wish we didn't have to go next door for breakfast.
