My wife and I booked a room at this motel for 1 night. When we arrived at 3:00 PM the office was closed. We used the little telephone outside the door and a young man came out and checked us in. It seemed like we were inconveniencing him or something. He barely looked up from whatever electronic device he was... More

This was an older motel but very nice. It was very clean and beds were very comfortable. We checked in after 7 P.M. The office is open till 10:00P.M. We just had to pick up a phone just outside the door and someone answered immediately and said they would be right with us- which she was and was very friendly.... More

As I write this review, we are bundled up in a rickety bed wearing sweatshirts and wool knit caps. It is 1230 in the morning and we can't sleep because the tiny wall-mounted electric space heater is not up to the task of heating the room. The room is clean and does have a nice TV. So if a rustic... More

Hi David, We're so sorry you had this experience. We did experience an unseasonable and very sudden freeze, and our Classic units unfortunately aren't as equipped to handle any quick weather transitions as our newer, Deluxe units are. We will be updating our Classic units in the near future, and, in the mean time, are looking into what we can... More

Arriving relatively late in Bennington, we checked into here as the first motel we saw with vacancies. What a mistake! Room was one of the smallest we have ever had, nowhere except bed or floor for suitcases (no stand), no chair, no shelves or space in bathroom(again, minute) and 99$+tax. No breakfast or even free coffee (there was a machine... More

It's difficult to reconcile the high ratings below with our experience. This property is an old-style roadside motel. motel that has been renovated at some point. However, the unit we were in clearly needs work: it featured peeling wallpaper and frayed carpeting. But the biggest issue we had was the water. When I first went into the bathroom, I noticed...

Pamela C, Owner at Harwood Hill Motel, responded to this review

Lyle, I'm sorry you didn't find the room to your liking. It's possible you stayed with us in one of our Classic units, which are less expensive than our more newly-renovated Deluxe units and therefore the decor is of a different, slightly less modern style. We are planning to renovate these units in the near future so that all of... More

I needed a quiet place to stay and rest up after a complicated medical procedure that carried risks afterwards and the Harwood Hotel fit the bill nicely. Everybody was so friendly and concerned--I really do appreciate the extraordinary amount of concern. Thankfully, none of those feared after side effects never occurred so I ended up getting a pleasant night's sleep.... More

We enjoyed Harwood. Stayed 5 Sep. 2015. It was a good place to stay, on short notice, on the north side of Bennington. Close to VT-279. It's pretty and quiet, and the owners have an interesting collection of iron sculpture around the grounds.

We stayed only one night in the section that had not been remodeled. It was very clean which is our top priority. The owners were very pleasant and welcoming and yes,, there is art in the little lobby. The bed was comfortable and I am very fussy about beds as I have bad arthritis and slept fine. I will say...

We stayed here for the Garlic fest weekend. It was easy to find and the view was beautiful. The man working the desk was very friendly and helped me find a place that delivered late night pizza. We opted for the arts package, which I highly recommend. It really helped to introduce us to the area and the savings did... More
