We stayed for an overnight on a business trip. The accommodations were great ! The room was very spacious, free WIFI, plenty of working electrical outlets. The bed was very comfortable and the room was decorated very pretty. On this cold night, the heater worked perfectly and there was plenty of hot water.

I stayed in a twin room back in September but have only just got around to doing a review. The room was huge, one of the best sized twin rooms I have stayed in. The room had many great amenities and was centrally located. The pool area was also nice. It was only a short drive to some good restaurants.... More

Accommodations were excellent. King size bed was incredibly comfortable. My wife has back issues and a lot of difficulties generally with "other" mattresses but she left wanting to find out the specifics on it so we can get the same configuration (pillow top and mattress) on our next mattress purchase. Breakfast quality was also excellent as usual. That's pretty much... More

I stayed here on business for four days. I wasn't expecting this kind of quality. From the size and comfort of the room to the helpful staff (Jackie especially) to the great breakfast. I also made use of their fitness center which had newer equipment in good working order. I'll be coming back for sure! Great job Best Western New... More

I stayed in this hotel quite regularly last year and thought it was reasonably priced, clean and conveniently located.I had nothing adverse to say about this place. When I went to book a room again this fall, I was stunned that the cost of the same room went from $62.00 with fees to $152.00 with fees! And now later in... More

Actually there has been many changes. All rooms now have the popcorn ceilings removed. All rooms have been painted and with an accent wall. All rooms had the refrigerators and microwaves changed as well as all furniture has been changed. This was done all this year. Sorry you didn't feel there was any changes. Summer and Fall prices are higher.... More

We came to Bennington to visit our granddaughter at Bennington College. We decided to save a little money and stay at the Best Western instead of the Hampton Inn in town because we had had good experience with the Best Western in Greenville, NC. What a disappointment was in store for us! The motel is fairly old and showing its... More

When you came to the desk, you only stated to the clerk that there was gum and could you have a box of tissues. He gave you towels instead as they are better than using the tissues in the room. I agree, housekeeping should have seen that and had it removed. As to the morning clerk, I understand you may... More

Excellent hotel, but not close to restaurants. Make a reservation or know what dates the city is having a festival or something special is scheduled. Also, watch your weather reports - it is in Vermont! It is located on a good East - West road (Route 9) but the hotel is off of this route by quite a bit.

I'm glad your stay was good during your time in Bennington. Thank you for taking the time for the review It's true, we are not within walking distant to full service restuarants.

Rooms are small but OK. Needs a little updating. Colors are dark making one wonder. Tub was supposed to be a jacuzzi but not and won't drain . Heat is a loud ac unit. Has thermostat and baseboard heaters but they don't work. Front desk person works alone so you have to wait while on the phone doing reservations too.... More

This hotel room, though small, suited our needs; simple, comfortable and clean. We stayed in November so we did not use the outdoor pool, nor did we have the time to use the exercise room. The breakfast provided everything you could want and was greatly appreciated. I would recommend this hotel for a no frills stay.

If you stay here remember that the hotel clearly states that it is a motel - do not expect a modern hotel type facility. It has been refurbished and the rooms and clean, large, and comfortably furnished. Everything worked for us (plumbing, AC, heat, etc.). Breakfast is in another building so it means a walk outside to get there. The... More
