Knotty Pine Motel
Ranked #5 of 8 Hotels in Bennington
Reviewed August 31, 2013

I have stayed at the Knotty Pine many times when travelling through Bennington. For starters you can't beat the value compared to the national brand hotels in the area. The rooms at the Knottty Pine are clean, cute, and have all the comforts of home (not to mention the continental breakfast). The vaule and clean rooms are important, but the warm welcome I receive every time I arrive at the Knotty Pine by owners Betsy and Ed is just pricless. They make me feel like family every time. I have spoke with other guests that have been coming back to the Knotty Pine for years and they say the same thing. " Can't beat the warm welcome we receive" I just want to thank Betsy and Ed for providing me with a home away from home after a long day.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean and comfee.

Room and all facilities were clean, and we were pleased with how quiet it was. Staying only one night and with much to unload as we embarked on a road trip, we liked being able to park right outside the door to our room. The outdated look that other reviewers described can be expected from a small, locally owned establishment, so we never downgrade a mom-and-pop for that because it's part of the charm of staying at such a place. If you want ultramodern, stay at a chain. And yes, the cost could have been lower for a a locally owned place, but it still is competitively priced given that the chains' nightly rates in the Bennington area also can be much higher. The Knotty Prine is in a handy location from which to visit sites of interest in this historic town, and several good restaurants, too. The lady working in the reception area was extremely friendly and helpful in giving directions and advice.

Dear D from MO,

Thank you for your kind and honest review! You said it so perfectly when you wrote, "If you want ultra modern, stay at a chain." The Knotty Pine has many modern amenities including wi-fi throughout the property, refrigerators and microwaves in all rooms, flat screen TV's, etc. but ultra modern decor is not what we are selling. In fact, as a Vermont business owner, born and bred, I like to think that is not what most people are or should be looking for when they travel to our beautiful state.

For over 40 years we've been about offering clean, comfortable and reasonably priced lodgings to travelers with a little something extra...character!

We look forward to seeing you on a return trip!
Warmest Regards, Betsy Bluto Woods, Innkeeper

We visited the Knotty Pine a couple of years ago not much has changed,I think the room we had last time may have been newer this seemed to be a little older.My only real problem was the TV.My puter monitor is bigger.Was hard to see from the bed.Staff were very nice and pleasant.

This is a great little "Mom and Pop" type motel that reminds me of places where I stayed as a child back in the late 60's. Everything was well kept and clean, the owner was friendly and helpful, and the price was great. Would definitely stay here again.

Rooms are very old and out dated.
Poor value for cost. While returning on vacation late at night, we needed two rooms one night. Did search on Tripadvisor and this motel had good reviews. Based on reviews we picked it, but it turned out the reviews where very much over rated. Both rooms very old and run down. Would not recommend.

Stayed one night on business. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Rooms are old fashioned and nothing fancy but you're not going to find any marriot level options around here. So considering the options, this hotel was pretty good. Service was friendly and welcoming by the owner/operator. Nice location, close to highway and shops/restaurants.

From when we stepped into the office to check till the time we left I enjoyed everything the motel had to offer. Their pool in the middle of the grounds is clean and looks well looked after and they also have towels poolside. The room was clean and although the facility is older they appear well maintained. The check in clerk was helpful with finding things for us to do and even brought a brochure by with things highlighted. The motel is a short drive to downtown and overall in a convenient location. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the area!
