The rate was excellent...it was close to rt. 7 and 7a...the breakfast was just what we needed and the staff was friendly. The rooms were good size. We had 3 rooms all with adjoining doors. Great for a ladies weekend! Our... More

When we made our reservations last winter, this was a Best Western Plus; since then, it has been downgraded to just Best Western, and we could certainly understand why. The rooms need a refresh of all fabrics – bed coverings, curtains, upholstery, and carpet. With age, fabrics take on odors, and it’s just time to change these. Otherwise, the room... More

Very good facilities, including laundry. Breakfast was good, too. The room was rather basic, but clean and comfortable. Quite convenient for visiting the local attractions, such as the Museum and the Battle Monument.

We didn't have a big expectations for this hotel both when booking it and first driving up but it is a very good hotel. The room was nice and clean as were reception and the breakfast area.

While customer service was fine, our room reeked of smoke, and I used to smoke and am not sensitive, but this was gross! Further the room was dated and the bathroom was grotty.

We stayed for one night at this hotel. The front desk staff was polite and attentive. The room was clean and quiet with a well working AC. They provide a breakfast buffet in the morning with a waffle maker. Can't go wrong with a waffle maker! All in all, not a bad place to stay.

There aren't very many motels to choose from in Bennington Vermont. This particular property is very old and in dire need of updating. It reminds me of the old motor lodge style motel back in the day. The mattresses squeaked and were worn out and not conducive to a good nights rest. Furthermore, when the toilets were flushed it sounded... More

We often stay at Best Westerns in other cities. This was set up more as a Motel with separate outside entrances to each room. One needed to walk outdoors (mostly under covered porches) to get to breakfast. Nicole at the desk was very helpful and efficient.
