I am a hotel person and was a little apprehensive to stay in a Motel. I was truly amazed with this place. The rooms were clean and very quiet. The backyard had a nice lawn that we could all hand out in. Staff was very friendly.

We highly recommend. The owners and staff are very helpful and make you feel like you're at home. The room was very clean and comfortable. We were there for five day's and it was so relaxing and comfortable that I hated to leave. When I come back to Bennington the Harwood Hill Motel will be the only place we would... More

I stayed one night while visiting Bennington area. My check in experience was so helpful and appreciated. I was given dinner recommendations along with a map to covered bridges close by. My room decorations were a little dated but very comfortable. It is not perfect but very clean. I would come back again when staying in this area. Close by... More

When booking a room I always look for the cheapest, but cleanest, motel I can find. The Harwood Hill Motel hit the mark on both counts. The price of $65 plus tax for the night could not be beat and the room I had was cozy and spotless. The bed was firm yet comfortable. Cups, soap, shampoo, and conditioner were... More

Hi Roger! Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your patronage, and the comments in your review will definitely be taken into account! We wanted to explain that the room you stayed in may appear rundown, but this is actually one of our "Classic" units. This means the decor is a bit dated and rustic, and has not been remodeled...

My recent visit to Harwood Hill Motel exceeded my expectations. A family owned motel just a few miles out of Bennington center city, the motel room was very clean, large and nicely decorated accompanied by outstanding service from the owners. A little reluctant to rely totally on other reviews, some a little less than great, for decision making, I found... More

If you are looking for a motel that is super clean, quiet and a good place to sleep. This is the motel for you. The new owner is happy to accommodate requests if she can and really knows the area. If, like me, you don't like the constant hum of heat or air conditioning, the fact that I could open... More

This motel is in a rural setting with a lot of open space but only a short drive on historic route 7A to the attractions and entertainment of Bennington, a charming small New England town. The place and its owner is dog friendly. Our room was good sized with a fridge, coffee maker and microwave and a comfortable bed. Nearing... More

I really like the idea it's on scenic VT 7A, not on a commercial Rd.(but only minutes from town.) It's Vermont! Has large and pleasant grounds. A very popular restaurant is only a short stroll across the lawn.A new thing, they are displaying works of local artist and artisans. These items for our enjoyment, and can be purchased. You should... More

The staff at this motel was very nice, and I hope they can upgrade this place and make it a success. We checked in here due to the TripAdvisor rating, and we were really let down when we walked into our room. I do not know who reviewed this place, but I cannot believe that it has such a high...

We needed a place to sleep and this motel was one of the only few available so we tried it out. We picked it for the very low cost but were very happy. When our room didn't have hot water we were quickly moved. There was great coffee for the maker, cable and internet. Comfy bed, good amount of room... More
