“Basic Hotel for a fair price, clean but not fancy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2005

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights, in consideration of the cost, under $90 a night, its a basic hotel for travelers on a budget. Don't expect too much and you won't be dissapointed. Staff was friendly and cheerful, so that was a plus.
Continental breakfast was OK, best part was make your own hot waffle! Fruit was not fresh, but bread products were good quality.
Pool was absolutely chilly, so we couldn't take more than a quick dip, the pool 'towels' they give you were small and thin, so you better ask for 2 per person.
Rooms were clean and efficient, but could probably go for some updating. But all was in working order.
So I would rate this as a good basic place to stay, but not fancy.

We stayed once in Nov. 2004 and later we booked 4 rooms for 2 days on New Year's Eve weekend. We found the New Englander to be clean & well supplied. The staff were courteous while making reservations over the phone, during our stay and at check-out.
We were very pleased with our accomodations and our guests felt the same way. The continental breakfast was adequate. The food was fresh but the coffee was not hot enough. We would recommend this hotel and plan to stay there in the future.

We stayed at the Best Western over the weekend of 10/15/04. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Our room was large with a king size bed, fridge, and microwave. It was clean and neat. Definitely a good value and in a good location to all attractions in Bennington. Thr Four Chimneys Restaurant was a good place to eat, as was Talk of the Town and Hunters.

We stayed there recently for a ski weekend. The place is conveniently located less than an hour away from Mt. Snow, Stratton and Bromley. For the price, you get a large, clean room and bed. Some rooms appear to have been more recently renovated. Great if you're just looking for a clean place to sleep after a long day on the slopes. Definitely no frills.

Best Western served our needs of a one night stopover on our way back to New York. Clean, basic rooms. Staff was efficient but not overly friendly. Close to the highway. Pool and picnic areas were popular with families. Continental breakfast was sufficient but not as extensive as at a Hampton Inn. Excellent value $75 with AAA discount and no minimum night requirement like many places in the area in the summer and fall.
Mnay restaurants close at 8 pm. There is a Madison Brewery on Main Street which was popular with local families. Burgers and such.
