We wanted to try a non chain hotel thru our travels in new england. We found this one and decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. Stayed in room #9. King room with fridge,microwave,tv with at least a hundred channels and free very strong wifi. The room decor was more like a cabin vs the... More

As others have noted, this is an "old time" motel... that has been well-maintained and is kept clean. Our room was huge by comparison to others during this trip. (We tend to use older, non-chain properties.) If you're realistic you won't find much to complain about... there's always a lack of outlets in hotels of this vintage--we carry a power... More

The rooms here are so nice. New beds, updated bathrooms, nice continental breakfast. Friendly hometown owners. The pool is sparkling clean. If you are traveling this way, definately give it a try. This is my second time here.

I was driving through Bennington on my way to somewhere else and spent the night at the Knotty Pine. This is a "old-time" road side motel which has been updated and is well maintained. It is easy to find, the rooms are nicely appointed, good TV, coffee in the room and a continental breakfast in the morning. Reception staff person... More

We were passing through VT on our way to CT. After a long day of driving we chose Bennington. We had no reservation as we were not sure how far we would travel. It was a good stop at a clean, well cared for motel at a reasonable price. It was obvious that the owners care about their property and... More

This place is adorable and well-kept! My daughters enjoyed the greeting committee of dogs who met us in the lobby. There are special touches like Tom's toothpaste and liquid creamer for the in-room coffee instead of the powdered stuff. So much fun to stay on a place like this instead of a chain!

An older motel that retains the charm of yesteryear. They do a good job of updating the rooms. Mine was clean and well kept. Close to most everything in Bennington. The only complaint I have was the hot water took probably five minutes to heat up for a shower. But, if my neighbor next to me showered first, it got... More

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review and are so glad you found our motel to be convenient and comfortable! You are correct that it can take what seems an inordinately long time to get hot water, unfortunately being an older property we do have a very long loop system that supplies the hot water feed to...

What a pleasant surprise! This motel was such a great little find. The second we pulled up we were greeted by Isabella (their Newfoundland!!) and then we met the rest of the family! Such sweet people! The room was impeccably clean and the little touches around the room made it feel like you were visiting a friend rather than staying... More

Dear Sarah, It was a pleasure hosting you and your mother. The fall is a spectacular time to visit Vermont and the Knotty Pine. We'll be glad to have you back, and good luck with the new double doodle! More

Judging from the street view, you might think it is just another dated, tired roadside motel with a capital M, but staying at the Knotty Pine was as a great experience. The rooms are big and clean, the location is a short drive to the center of Bennington and to other Vermont/Berkshire destinations, and the staff is friendly and attentive.... More

Dear Melvillean, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. It's true that motor inns do not always have the good reputations that they once did. As independent owners we are trying hard to keep this very important part of Americana alive and thriving. We're so glad that you had a good experience at the Knotty Pine and... More

Very clean hotel. NO musty hotel room smell. Newly renovated bathrooms and new carpeting. New beds being delivered this week. It was a little early in the season to swim, but we did enjoy relaxing in the lounge chairs by the pool in the evening and morning. Great value. We will definitely be back.

We're glad you noticed our efforts to update and renovate our guest rooms. Yes, new beds are in place in ALL of our 20 units! Many rooms also have newly tiled bathrooms. We have been in business for 42 years this summer and believe that constant upkeep and pleasant surroundings is the key to our longevity! Thank you! More
