If you’d rather not eat every meal at a restaurant, the convenience of a fridge and microwave in many of the Hilltop Inn’s 80 rooms may sway you toward this serviceable hotel in Berlin. You can also wash and iron their own clothes here, swim in an indoor heated pool and access snowmobile trails right out the door. Rooms, renovated in 2005, also include Serta pillow-top mattresses, and there’s tea, hot chocolate and Green Mountain Coffee available 24 hours per day. (The onsite Susanna’s restaurant serves basic meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.) Rates range from $49 to $119 per night, and the large parking lot draws truckers, bus groups and weary travelers. The Hilltop Inn is also close to the Berlin Mall. It’s two and half miles from Montpelier, but one of the best deals in town.
