This is undoubtedly the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. For over $160 we just got a plain room with two beds, no coffeemaker in the room, no simple breakfast. Didn't even want to take cash payment up front even though we explained we were moving across the country & didn't carry credit cards (didn't have a problem in another hotel in Ohio....). Feel like we got ripped off for what the room was. The town didn't even have attractions to warrant this price. Never staying here ever again & we'll be warning everyone who may go to Vermont to avoid this place.

I would just like to say that the people who were in the front office were very friendly, but nice service can only get you so far. I booked this trip for myself as a little mid summer retreat with my dog. I decided to get the mini suite which was described on the website as “Our 1/2 suite is a oversized room with a king sized bed as well as a sleeper sofa. We also have a small Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom as well. The room is located right beside Sleeper River”. I was so excited, up until I walked in the room. The room smelt of stale cigarette smoke even though the property is suppose to be non smoking. As for being right beside the sleeper river, the room is across from an over grown fence next to the sleeper river. You are also provided with a rusty bench outside of the room that’s covered in spider webs to enjoy your “view”. The television in the room is an old Panasonic which is facing the wrong way from any sitting area in the room; I also had to fiddle with the cable line in order to get a clear picture. The bed is an old spring mattress that has seen better days, and when my dog jumped on the bed she continued to sniff at a spot on the duvet cover and refused to lie down. Once I pulled off the duvet she still refused to lay down on that side of the king sized bed, and it made me question how well the linens were cleaned before I got there. As for the Jacuzzi it’s on a timer and when you turn it on it sounded like it was going to go through the wall! The caulking around the tub has been taken over by mold, and the tub has been busted up for so long that it looks like it isn’t clean; you are also provided with a soap scum covered rubber mat for the bottom of the tub. The old carpet is covered with stains, here’s the deal I understand that I am traveling with my dog, however we deserve a well kept room especially when I am paying an extra $25 in pet fee which should be going to the up keep of the room. Trying to sleep in that room was also a joke, the ac / fan unit is so noisy I had no choice but to turn it off. The mini suite also connects to another room which you can hear everything going on next door. If you stay here be hopeful the people up stairs are not early risers, you will hear their shower and them walking around. There are people living at the inn which was sad to see (a family with two cute little boys who I let pet my dog), and there were some unsavory characters hanging around on the balcony of the second floor. All in all my two night stay dropped to one night, the accommodations were not what I believe the website made them out to be. I checked out yesterday morning, explained the problems I had and was offered another room but I declined. No sleep for me or my dog is not what I would define as a great vacation idea and I just wanted to come home. I will definitely be coming back to St Jay; however I will be seeking other dog friendly accommodations.

Disappointed after seeing photos , not what I expected. Screen broke , off track, one chair poor quality for "deck.'" Stain on sheet on bed. Could hear guests overhead. Room not up to standards especially for the cost of $143 a night.

COMPLETE JOKE ! Overall the stay we had was horrible! The room smelled of smoke. The tub had soap rings that were very easily wiped off. The bathroom sink still had what would look to be Mens hair from shaving, as well as toothpaste scum on the outer ring of the sink . There was a complete wall covered with Cobwebs as well as the tops of the lights in the bathroom still had smoke on them from what would appear to be when the room was smoking. There was also candy wrappers around the sides of the bed near the bed skirt where housekeeping had either pushed them under with the vacuum or had just not tended to the problem at all ! The Microwave as well as the fridge that were in the room were nasty with stains and still had crumbs of food left in the bottom of them.....When we checked out and told the front desk of our findings, it seemed to be the norm and was noted to be looked at.The room as well smelled of wet dogs ....... Just over all nasty nasty rooms !
