We've never stayed in this type of motel before so our experiences might be expected by those who have done it more... It was clean and functional. The welcome was laid back and friendly enough. We had enough facilities and towels etc. All in all it was fine but priced about the same as hotels we'd been staying in recently....

Holiday for two. Great hotel and staff. We were greeted by Louisa who is gorgeous by the way. Our room was spotless warm and inviting. Coffee maker, microwave, tv, free wifi and a pet chicken in the backyard. In the morning, Louisa supplied homemade cake and banana bread with coffee. I would have proposed marriage but my wife was there.

We spent two nights at Governor's Rock. The motel was clean, nicely furnished with fridge, microwave and flat screen TV. We actually sat out back on our private patio and ate chocolate chip ice cream from the Chocolate Barn. The motel was situated on VT 7A about halfway between Arlington and 2 covered Bridges and Bennington and 3 more covered...

When we arrived they told us sorry but you can't have the room. No explanation just tough. She told us she moved us to their "biggest nicest room" with a queen bed which a...

We had a great time at this motel. The room and facility was very clean and the staff was very attentive and helpful with our stay. Their recommendations on places to visit and have breakfast, lunch and dinner were very good. This motel made travel to Manchester and Bennington very easy. I highly recommend this place and would definitely stay...

Room smelled bad. No window coverings on bathroom window. Could not shower due to lack of privacy. Never slept. Was bitten by something. State they have breakfast but it is more like coffee and donuts! Do not recommend at all!

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in May. Sophia was a pleasure to speak with, and the maple walnut cake she prepared for the continental breakfast was the most delicious and moist I've ever tasted! Our room was spacious, the queen bed was very soft and comfortable. The room appeared to have been updated recently, and the...
