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

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
