“Summer home”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Annual 2-week stays for over a decade. No one hovers over you with attention but you will not find a nicer staff elsewhere. As our business activities are exclusively at the college the location is excellent, mid-way between the fine restaurants in North Bennington and downtown Bennington itself. Of course compared to the fancy hotels in mid-town Manhattan where we live this is a simple residence, but for my wife and me this is truly home away from home.

Our stay at the Motor Inn was very nice, and our group really enjoyed the Inn. The entire Inn was clean and quaint. The staff were all caring and helpful. This place is a true gem and I look forward to coming back!

I stayed at this facility in July, while attending a wedding. I was surprised with the room sizes. Most of the hotel rooms were taken up by longer stay guests. Nearly half of the rooms were taken up by a group of middle aged couples touring on their motorcycles. The breakfast was adequate. The women at the desk was helpful and nice. The ice machine was on the blink, which kind of bothered us since we couldn't cool our drinks down. There is a small pool that didn't seem to be used by many guests.

Room Tip: It is a motor lodge style so it really didn't matter.

Thank you for taking the time for the review. We're not sure why the ice machine had stopped working, but as soon as maintenance came in, he did get it back going. Unfortunately not while you were still here. I do apologize about that.

On our recent trip to Vermont, we hesitantly booked the Best Western in Bennington. I say hesitantly because past experiences with Best Westerns have not been so hot. The "Plus" in Best Western Plus turned out to be quite a surprise. The place looked very new with up-to-date, lovely rooms, an attractive exterior and grounds, a beautiful pool in the center of the complex, a good breakfast featuring a Belgian waffle maker (mmmmm), and a helpful and courteous staff. However, the price was not "plus"-- it was incredibly reasonable. The location is minutes from downtown Bennington, right on the road that leads you up to the Norman Rockwell "museum", Norman Rockwell's home, and the Robert Frost House.

Our room was perfectly acceptable -- basically, we slept there. The pool was great -- bigger than other hotel pools I've used recently. The free breakfast was delicious -- great selection, nicely presented. All in all, this Best Western was well worth the price.

The location is close to Williamstown, Mass and Manchester, VT. The staff is friendly and work hard. There is a nice breakfast buffet provided daily and a pretty outdoor pool for leisurely afternoons or evenings. The rooms are typical of the chain and the cleaning staff does a great job daily to keep them in good order. The rates were very reasonable on our multi-day staff and will rate a return trip.

Room Tip: Some rooms with king beds have Jacuzzi tubs which are nice. Being across from the pool was great.

Was a little hesitant about booking unseen, but no regrets. Clean, comfortable room. Friendly staff. Enjoyed the chairs provided just outside door for drying swim suits. Nice pool. Plenty of extra pillows and towels,
