“Room was perfect for my needs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

I stayed one night and had a great experience. The room with two beds was roughly $50. It was a little dated but was clean and comfortable. The heating unit worked great and the wireless internet was flawless. It was a little small but had everything I needed. I will definitely return to the Benton Inn.

Room Tip: Choose the Benton Office wireless network.

I chose this hotel because it had the cheapest rates, but my room was clean and comfortable and everything in it worked. I've stayed in cheap hotels before that I would never return to because the dirt and discomfort weren't worth the money saved, but this was not in that category and I will probably stay here again when I return to the area. No frills, but none were expected or necessary. The area was quiet. Front desk staff were very nice and accommodating.

For about $50 per night, this is probably the cheapest place to stay in Benton. We spent one night here. Receptionist was very polite. The room was ice-cold when we entered, and being concrete block, it took several hours for it to heat up with the heater on high. Fortunately, we had 2 double beds and only needed one, so we were able to take the blankets off the other bed for extra warmth. The room wasn't particularly clean or well maintained and the heater was loud. The plastic cups said "Holiday Inn" on them and the wastebasket was from another hotel (Super 8, I think). Another reviewer said that the rooms were being updated - maybe, but they hadn't gotten to the room we rented! There was a refrigerator and microwave but no coffee maker.

So, it was cheap but I think it was too expensive for what they provided and I wouldn't stay here again despite the welcoming receptionist.

We stayed at the Benton Inn while visiting the Murray State University, which was only about 15 minutes away. We just couldnt afford any other hotel so I was kind of "stuck" renting at Benton Inn but I am glad we did! The rooms were not only affordable, but we have a very comfortable stay. Jay the manager or owner was very friendly and helped us find a decent place to eat near by. We will stay here in the future when visiting MSU!

Motel has been recently sold. New owners are making update to the rooms. Room rate was very reasonable. Room was very clean, but a little outdated. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very quite location. I would stay there again.

I stayed for a week, payed for by my company. The room was absolutely disgusting. The only thing that has ever been updated is the door, and they failed to put the trim back on it. The wifi worked for one night, and when I asked what was wrong they told me it must be to cold...try it again. The third day they finally came in and swapped out my towels, and decided to shut my heat off. The room had a small window mount heat pump unit, and it took almost 24 hours to even get the room comfy. When I called to complain, they explained to me (with very broken English) that there was no one in the room. So there was no need to let it run. As if I like to come back to a cold bed. What a crock! It didn't cost me a dime to stay here, and there is no way in hell I would ever stay here again! In short, the worst motel, with the worst management that I've ever experienced. Stay away from Benton inn!!!!

It was 50.00 for 1 night so not exactly cheap. Won't stay here again. We arrived at 1:00 in the morning and was exhausted from traveling otherwise we would have tried to find other accomodations. The beds were dirty, pillowcases were yellowed. Yuck! Totally outdated with plastic tile in the bathroom. Looked like it had never been cleaned. Curtains wouldn't close all the way so had to try to sleep with bright lights from outside and no privacy. Bed was bumpy and hard.
