Bennington Motor Inn
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Bennington
Reviewed 1 May 2012

We stayed here whilst I was racing at the Tour of the Battenkill over the state line in Cambridge NY. Bennington certainly seemed to be the most lively town in the region with plenty of restaurants and cafes and other attractions. We like family-owned traditional B&Bs where we can find them - not least because they are usually dog-friendly.
A word of advice - when booking for smoking/non-smoking and/or with a pet be very explicit on your online booking and best ring to confirm. The number of rooms is limited for any given category (especially pets) so it is always best to make extra sure or you may end up in (e.g.) a smoking room because non-smoking pet-friendly rooms are all taken.
In any case we had no issues - the other guests were mainly racing cyclists too so there was no issue with late night noise. In any case it's always best to bring ear plugs in these sorts of places - they are not the Hilton.
Rooms were clean and well appointed. Owner was friendly and helpful. They do a good job at a reasonable rate.

Booked this room through expedia .. Called to make sure it was non smoking room. On appearance the room seemed to be clean, clean sheets, vaccumed, etc.. but upon laying down to sleep for the night it was apparent that someone who had stayed there before and/or the people next door were smokers.. Both of my children have asthma, as you can imagine the smell irriated them. When my husband went to the front to complain they were both unhelpful and unsympathetic...it was obvious from the parking lot they were not full to capacity..but they did not even offer us other accommedations...

my son and i spent a cozy night here on a recent return from stratton. we felt not as if we were in a hotel but in the upstairs room of a great aunt's house. lots of little touches convey a feeling of warmth and welcome, and it is delightful to find an establishment that still pays attention to detail. the wallpaper had contrasting victorian designs, the bed a ruffled bedskirt. two glass topped end tables also were draped in fabric, and there was a rocking chair in one corner. a storm door allowed a view while maintaining privacy. two glass coffee mugs were set out next to the coffee maker, and we were able to take our juice, cereal, and donuts (part of the complimentary breakfast laid out in the office) up to the room on metal trays decorated with a vermont motif.

the water was hot; the heat was able to be turned up high; the lighting was able to be adjusted to soft or bright. and the price was right! $65. we left well rested and happy.

we later realized we had left some food items in the room's fridge. we called and were told they had been set aside for us, and that we could retrieve them at our convenience from the front desk. they were bagged and ready for us when we did, which gave us a chance to say thank you for the hospitality. we will be returning--again.

This place is located in the heart of Bennington VT. The price was Great and the Room had just what we needed. Located close to town to eat and drink, we spent a night before we headed to the VT Cheese Trail. Clean, Quite, and Good Service,Good Breakfast.

If in the neighborhood again I would stay here.

Thanks,

Felipe, Tanya, Nevenka, Jeffrey

Room Tip: Just make sure to get breakfast before 10am or it will be gone.
