“"We love the Paradise!"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

When our daughter and son-in-law and two children come to Bennington we always put them up at the Paradise Inn. We have been doing this for 14 years, and they just love it there. We always ask for the same room, pool-side, and the staff is very accomodating. The pool area is lovely, day and night, and we are able to visit there as a family while the children are enjoying the pool. As the children have grown older, we've asked once or twice if they'd rather stay at a place with an indoor pool, and the answer is always, "No, we love the Paradise!" The rooms are clean and comfortable, and they always feel so welcome. We recommend this for anyone who is looking for a friendly, clean, safe and comfortable place to stay. The price is reasonable, too. Great value for the money!

We regularly book Weekend getaways to the Paradise from New York City. Its just over 3 hours by car, but feels like a different planet. We are always greeted with warm smiles and the staff is very professional. The rooms are very spacious and very clean. On one trip we even had a Sauna in the room. They have really done great job with the grounds. There are flowers everywhere and the pool area is a great place to relax and just enjoy the beautiful views of the mountains. I hvae nothing but praise for the Paradise. It is like our home away from home

Room Tip: Rooms in the South building facing the pool are the best. The ones on the end even have saunas in th...

My family has been staying at the Paradise Inn for a number of years now. We visit Bennington several times and year and this is our motel of choice.

The rooms and the grounds are always very well kept. Everything is always very neat and clean. There is also a nice size swimming pool. There is spacious grounds for your family to enjoy.

The staff is quite friendly and courteous. We highly recommend staying here to anyone traveling to the Southern Vermont area.

Room Tip: There is a room to accommodate a family of any size.

The motel has a very nice backyard; if your room faces it, and you are on the ground floor, you can walk out to the pool, and it's very nice. Unfortunately the rooms are very humid, and have a very bad, unpleasant smell. The location is also sub-optimal; you have to walk 10-15 minutes to reach some reasonable place to have dinner or breakfast.

Room Tip: Make sure you choose a room facing the pool area.

Thank you for your feedback, we strive to provide a positive experience to all of our guests and regret not having met your expectations. We have addressed the problem we were having with the air quality in one of our buildings and have improved the ventilation system to rectify the problem. Additionally, at the end of August 2012 a new cafe opened on our property serving breakfast and lunch. (We are two blocks from downtown restaurants and cafes.) We recently have also added free wi-fi access to all of our guest rooms. Again, please accept our apology for your dissapointment.

My husband and I have been going to the Paradise for over 20 years. I grew up in the area and make a point of staying at the Paradise when I return. It is a unique place to stay; it has so much more charm than a lot of cookie cutter places. The pool and grounds are truly enjoyable and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is an old facility but has been well maintained; the age is also part of it's charm.

Room Tip: Rooms with a patio or balcony are a bonus.

My wife and I have stayed at the Paradise Inn during the four seasons for the past
12 years. We always feel welcomed and reassured at the Paradise Inn that our stay will be a very positive, pleasurable one. The accommodations are consistently comfortable, clean, attractive, and safe; and we have nothing but praise for the management and staff’s professional and caring attitudes. We have never encountered a problem or any issue that would cause us to think of staying elsewhere.

The management and its staff have always upheld their high standard of guest satisfaction. We’ve never had trouble with parking, room conditions, amenities, or
Service.

The pool and garden area is well manicured and aesthetically beautiful,
with a heated pool, sitting and walking areas, a gazebo, and a tennis court
in a peaceful setting.

The lobby, with Internet access, a TV, and comfortable furniture make for a homey and cheerful lounge area for working and relaxing, while enjoying complimentary coffee and tea.

The Paradise Inn is the best of the best in Bennington and the surrounding area. It is convenient to downtown shopping and for taking scenic walks such as to the Monument, which is a towering historic structure dedicated to the famous Battle of Bennington positioned at the top of a hill overlooking Bennington and the country side. It’s also a scenic 30-minute drive from Manchester and Williamstown.

We have recommended the Paradise Inn throughout the years to family and friends,
and have never heard anything other than their thanks and accolades.

The Paradise Inn is our home sweet home when staying in and around Bennington, VT.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building, on the second floor, have been quietest during our stays--though we'...

We stayed here with a few other familes this past weekend. It's a little musty could use some updates but its very big and has a nice pool area. Good for what we needed. They do have a quite a few room choices to accomodate different families which is nice.
