The staff was extremely welcoming, helpful, and friendly. The room was very clean. it was very old and tired. The amount of air freshener was overwhelming and did not kill the years of smoking the room has endured. It was very expensive for what it was.

Hiker friendly, managers Al and Annie go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Regardless of how busy they are, they treat you like family, arranging transport, holding care packages, whatever is needed to help make your stay in Bennington enjoyable. Trail angel, Steve, is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms are basic but clean. The facility and... More

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.
