I didn't care for the room. The blankets were dusty and stinky and the neighbors were louder than I wanted them to be. Mold in the corners of the shower as well. Thought it would be cozier. Next time I'm in town I'll stay at another motel.

Having stayed at the Knotty Pine Motel once before, we decided we'd give it a try for a two-week stay in Bennington, VT. This was during the holiday season and for a few days after New Year's, and the price could not be beat. They don't offer weekly rates at all times of the year, but it's always reasonably priced...

Very friendly staff and comfortable rooms. I stay here frequently and they've always helped me with my travel needs. Rooms are currently being updated with a modern taste but overall are elegantly dated with a bit of old vermont feel to them. Located very close to the downtown Bennington area and is walking distance to shopping plaza. I would recommend... More

My mom, older daughter and I went to Bennington to visit my younger daughter at college. We stayed at the Hampton Inn which was fine. My mom became unexpectedly I'll and had to get admitted to the hospital so my daughter and I had to stay another night. We decided to try the knotty pine since it was a little... More

Older, dated motel. Over-priced for value. Room dark and dreary. Staff friendly. Bathroom had been updated with tile, that helped out. Convenient to restaurants. Have decided to do a condo or home rental next trip instead of looking for decent motels nightly.

The Knotty Pine Motel is an immaculately maintained mid-century property that has been nicely updated without sacrificing its classic Americana ambience. It is an excellent value for the very reasonable rates charged.

I read the great reviews here and booked a room for 2 nights. Let me begin by saying the people I met in this family run business are great , warm and helpful. However we were assigned to Room 3 which was right on the road and we heard every car that passed. We could also hear the next rooms... More

The location was convenient and the proprietor was very nice. She recommended some places for dinner and even had menus to look at. The room itself was just okay. The bed was comfortable. The room included a refrigerator and microwave which was nice for us as we had a small cooler with some lunch food and drinks. Cleanliness was only... More

Knotty Pine Motel : Very nice room, the hosts were great. We stayed there on 9/23/14 and enjoyed the location and the host was most kind. My wife left a clothing item on the back of a door and she email the host, who shipped it to our home. Great people.

We stayed at the Knotty Pine a few times over the past few years while visiting relatives in the area.The owners are very friendly and accommodating, especially a late arrival. You do pay for your stay when you arrive and that is fine because then you can leave on your own schedule. The rooms are spacious and parking very convenient.... More
