When we arrived our check in was efficiently done by a friendly young woman. When we asked about local restaurants she gave us suggestions. The bathroom and room were clean but the room is a little dated including the phone which was a really old push button wall model. Because a taxi is necessary to get to one of the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I'm sorry that you had such trouble with the phones. They do all work, however as you stated, in today's world most people have a cell phone so we only offer two outgoing lines. As we offer free long distance calls, some guests take advantage of that and tie up... More

I was a little worried about noise when I arrived to find this an old fashioned motel located right on the main highway. But, found my room to be big, clean, safe, comfortable and surprisingly quiet. The owner is really friendly and gave me great suggestions for driving around the area to see historic sites, bridges and the local nightlife.... More

I stayed here in August 2014 while on a business trip in Bennington. This motels appeared to have been recently renovated. Room was very clean. Bathroom was spotless. The pool was very refreshing. Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. I will stay here in the future!

We had try to cancel our reservations earlier and due to their cancelation policy we were unable without a stiff penalty. The owner also said if she didn't rent the room, we would be charged full price. Unfortunately, we had no way to verify if the room would have been rented. So, we just decided to suck it up and...

what a great little place in Bennington, Vt. Very clean, quiet and easily accessible. We found this after not wanting to pay the high prices at the national chain down the street. Been around for 42 years and the management knows how to provide great service. We were directed to a fabulous restaurant for dinner with a personalized map from... More
