“"Our go to get away"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I'm from Bennington, I moved to Idaho four years ago. Each year my husband and I go to Bennington to visit family and friends. We always stay at one of the cabins at the Harwood Hill Motel. It's very affordable, the views are excellent and it's located in a nice quite area, right across from the Hemmings apple orchard. If your in Bennington during apple season you just have to cross the road to the orchards and pick the most delicious apples around.

The yards at the motel are spacious and have large pic nic tables and a nice gazebo where family and friends can drop by and visit. This is a big plus for us, we don't have to waste any of our time driving all over to see people. They can come and see us at the motel, enjoy the quite, the views and also use the bbq grill for a cook out. The Harwood Hill Motel is very much family friendly.

The cabins have a tv and a small fridge, there is no miro wave or phone but there are other rooms that do have them. Just ask the friendly owners and they will tell you what rooms have what.

The owners and staff are so friendly and helpful it's like they become part of the family. I highly recommend their establishment for one night or for weekly stays.

Room Tip: Cabins have no miro wave or phones so you need to ask what rooms provide them if you need to have th...

Very nice man that runs the place. Nothing fancy but a good nights stay. The location is great. The scenery is beautiful. We only slept there and did not stay in the room much. They do offer free high speed wireless internet which is more than I get at home. The covered bridges in the area are not what I thought they would be. There is a nice monument down town that is very photogenic.

Recently stayed in one of Harwood's little cottages and would go back again! This little motel is conveniently located, the staff are helpful and the rooms are affordable. No these are not five star accomodations, however, for the price and location they can't be beat! Note, for those with pets some of the rooms are dog friendly.

Stayed here for one night in Aug 2012. The rooms are clean and comfortable and includes everything you would need, including a strong wifi signal. It's also very close to town which is a bonus. I'd definitely recommend staying here.

On a recent road trip we stopped for the night. Stayed at the Hardwood Motel on our Adirondack road trip in one of their cottages, and we loved everything about our stay. And short walk through the hedge for dinner at the Publyk House, then it was back to the cottage for a restful night sleep.The rooms are clean and the prices are a bargain..

I stayed at the Harwood on business many times during the winter and spring of 2012. The rooms are clean and the prices reasonable. The owner Chet is very strict about no smoking in the rooms which I appreciate. Not that i am anti smoking, I enjoy a fine cigar myself outdoors on occasion. The service is personal and friendly. Chet even provided a nice charcoal grill when I inquired about one. The rooms are nicely furnished and include a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The wifi works well too.

Stayed at the Hardwood Motel on our New England road trip in one of their cottages, and we loved everything about our stay.

Sure, it's an old school spot, but you can walk through the hedge for dinner on the deck next door at the Publyk House, lounge on the lawn, and enjoy the clean rooms.

Service is nice, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the view is incredible!
