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 are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your accommodations. As you noted in your review, we at The Harwood Hill work hard at providing the best service - you gave us five stars on that, and we appreciate it! That being said, if you felt we provided excellent service, why didn't you speak to us about... More

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

We had stayed here a few times before and stayed again on this year's New England trip. The motel has new owners. They are doing a great job. Our room was comfortable and quiet. The motel is just outside Bennington and convenient to town and the area attractions.

I stayed here when I spent a weekend visiting my son at Bennington College. The hotel is very convenient to everything in Bennington, Bennington College (just a couple of minutes away), and the Robert Frost Stone House in Shaftsbury. You can enjoy all of the beauty, historic sites and museums of Bennington easily from here with a car. There are... More

The place has changed owners, and we found them to be very helpful in addressing a small issue we came across. The area is wonderful, and we enjoyed our glass of wine overlooking their back yard. We had a cabin, which is nothing fancy, but certainly met all of our expectations, especially considering their rates. Will return again next fall.

I agree with all those who have rated this place highly! It's delightful, cozy, dog-friendly, and AAA approved. Grills, a nice lawn behind the cabins, and a beautiful view of Mt. Anthony! Right next to The Publyk House, too - a lovely New England restaurant with delicious food.

We stayed at this motel with another family member for a family reunion that was held in Bennington VT on 7/18-20. We decided to book two rooms fairly late, and found most of Bennington's h/motels booked solid. So we consulted Tripadvisor, and the Harwood Hills Motel had some decent reviews. Here is our own review: We arrived mid-day on Friday.... More

I've stayed at Harwood Hill Motel a number of times on trips to the east coast. Rooms are nice, clean and the setting is wonderful. There are lovely views of the mountains and the Bennington monument. The owners are friendly and willing to assist. Having the Publyk House restaurant right next door is great when you arrive tired from driving... More

This is truly a beautiful little Vermont motel, the views are incredibly gorgeous, the owners went out of their way to ensure your happy and have the most information on the town of Bennington. I will definitely reserve rooms from here again for my out of state family when they come to visit.

We had a cabin at Harwood Hill for 4 days. It was like a rustic retreat. The view was amazing. The owner was so helpful. The space was warm and cozy. There was lots to see in Bennington. We can't wait to go back.
