M.C. Benton Jr. Convention Center
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Have not been to Winston-Salem in almost 40 years and found myself with a friend at convention in the Benton Center. Impressive facility for a town of that size. Easy to navigate, well situated. There are reasonable hotels all around with parking and covered access. Can see this would be an excellent site for any number of "convention type" activities. Modern, clean and well appointed. I would not hesitate to return. This isn't the Atlanta World Congress Center or the Stephens Center in Chicago, but it's not bad; don't forget, you're in Winston-Salem, NC. The surrounding hotels/parking and covered access in a "downtown setting" makes it a bit of a gem when compared to many similar venues.

I could not keep a connection at all in the exhibit halls, the rooms were fine. The seating in the foyer is dingy and has many stains on them, not what one would expect when visiting a major city like Winston Salem.

Go here for conventions twice a year. It works. Decor is tired and needs replacing. Stuck in the 1970's and feels dirty, but most conventions are somewhat on the grubby side anyway.

This convention center does its job, but it shows its age. Additionally, they dropped the air down to such cold temperatures that we were all wearing our coats indoors. The high point though was the catering - great meals!

I was invited to attend a function at the convention center. The food was not as good as I expected considering the cost of the food. Overall, okay!
