We were meandering through Vermont on a leaf peeping road trip and before we knew it, we had to find a place to stay on our last night. After searching around and finding no vacancies, we stopped in at this motel with trepidation. The price was surprisingly low... Well, we were pleased to find the room very clean, neat, decently...

My wife and I found the motel to be nice, simple, and clean. Annie and Allen do a great job of managing the motel, on what am sure is a limited budget. We would make a return visit if ever in the area again.

Hello there dear travelers. This is a wonderful establishment. The New managers here at the Catamount are wonderful people. They are very helpful and easy to talk to. We found ourselves just chatting away. Annie is a mothering type who keeps a clean house. She treats the rooms as if it were her own home. Although the rooms seem out... More

We arrived to find still no outdoor flowers or anything attractive to the property. We believe the owners have the managers operating on a very limited budget. Nothing much has been improved. It was disappointing that the rate was raised over $40. because it was an area car show weekend. $125? Much too much for what is provided. With friends... More

Low prices don't excuse a massive mold outbreak in the shower, dripping faucet, loose bathroom tiles with missing grout, delaminating bathroom sink, ripped wallpaper, dirt left on the floor or a tv missing several colors. I'll give you that the sheets seemed clean. BUT everything else needs Mr. Clean...or a bulldozer.

I'll be honest, when we checked in I had visions of motel-themed horror movies. Turns out, the place exceeded my (admittedly low) expectations. Having arrived in Bennington on graduation weekend, we discovered the hotel we'd booked months in advance had gone out of business since, leaving us stranded. After a few urgent calls, we discovered that Catamount was almost entirely... More

We only stayed one night at this motel - the room is very basic. The air conditioning is noisy. The furnishings are shabby. I was concerned about the cleanliness of the blankets and bedspreads. The room rate was under $100 so I guess we got what we paid for.

The main problem with the room was fleas! The whole hotel needs to be fumigated. While the bed sheets and towels were clean, the blanket was disgusting, the carpet was stained, and the room contained a collection of mismatched scratched furniture. And for all this, the room price was grossly overpriced. Definitely not recommended.

This older motel is a bargain in the Bennington, VT area. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the staff helpful. The outdoor, unheated pool was too cold for me, even after a hot day on the road, but younger folks might find it okay. No Internet or breakfast. Restaurants close by.
