“Great Value”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We were very pleased with our accommodations. The front desk staff was fine. The room was a little tight, but ok for two people and really clean and bright. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was fine. Breakfast went above and beyond usual fare. We would definitely come back!

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and it was great! I was a bit skeptical when I saw the price and some of the reviews but please don't let them sway you. This is a lovely and clean place to stay. Rooms were quiet, location is right off of several scenic routes, store is right behind if you need snacks and the staff was quite helpful. They have done some remodeling and continue to make upgrades. Pam at the desk was quick to accommodate when our group got bigger. This place is a winner and a great choice to rest and relax.

We stayed here in August for 3 days and had a wonderful time. It's definitely more of a motel than an inn. For a reasonable price the room was a nice size, clean and comfortable, and having a fridge and microwave was important to us, so we appreciated it.

The receptionist was "frosty" when we arrived, but she warmed up (maybe it's just a typical chilly New England style welcome -- we noticed that most of the Vermont shop keepers we met on our trip weren't particularly friendly or warm -- no "Southern hospitality" in this state, just a lot of moose statues).

We toured the monument and took the scenic drive. Not much to do otherwise except relax.

We didn't eat the breakfasts, so can't rate it for you.

The couple who cleaned the room were very nice, but one morning we decided to sleep in until 11:00 so the room was never cleaned that day. We were surprised at that, and disappointed not to get clean towels. They should warn you that you have to be out early to have your room cleaned.

Room Tip: Facing the pool on the ground floor -- easy to load and unload the car, and a nice view.

I'm sorry if you felt at that the desk clerk was not being friendly upon first impressions. As to the room situation. We do have a sign at the front desk where we show you where your room is, which states that if your Do Not Disturb sign is still on the door at 12:00, you will not get service. We do have supplies at the front desk for guest's who need extras. Housekeepers are to go back around and if the sign has been removed by 12, you are supposed to get service. As I don't have access to your name, I can not verify it at this time if you removed it.

If you did, I do apologize that your room was not done as it is supposed to be when sign is removed by 12.

I'm glad that overall your stay was pleasant. Thank you for taking time for the review.

We stayed from Tuesday through Friday at this Motor Inn. First of all, we missed the hotel, directions were not very good. When we mentioned this to the staff at the desk, she said GPS doesn't get customers there, either. As mentioned in another review, staff was not very friendly. It is actually next to Walmart and Petco and PriceChopper, so it's a quick walk to get supplies, but a very busy road. I asked for a quiet room which they did supply. The room had a refrigerator and microwave. The couch was not very comfortable. We had two queen beds, rather firm, but I slept well on them. The room seemed clean, but the bathroom had an unpleasant odor. One of our key cards to enter the room did not work, but again the staff was not interested. The breakfast was very nice, eggs, sausage, Belgian waffles you make yourself, etc. The shower had good water pressure. On the last night, we had neighbors, and realized the walls were paper thin. They woke us up at midnight with their TV. Free WiFi, no security code needed.

Room Tip: We had a top floor room, in the middle of the line of rooms. Can't imagine the noise level if we...

I'm sorry if you felt at any time any of the staff was not helpful or pleasant. True, a lot of times GPS does mess up on their directions to many places, not just us in particular. Our beds are Simmons, which to some people can be too firm. I'm glad overall you enjoyed them. As to the couch in your room, I am surprised as these were just replace this year, but like a lot of other things, each person's likes are different than others.

I'm glad that overall your stay was pleasant. Thank you for taking the time for the review.

Room was very nice, and clean. The noise from the traffic is a little loud. The reception staff is not very pleasant. The evening staff person and morning staff person acted like I was inconveniencing them. A couple from Ohio checked in ahead of me and were asking questions about the trees in the area. The afternoon receptionist didn't even answer their question, kind of rude. The housekeeper is very nice and pleasant.

I stayed two nights here and was pleasantly surprised. I didn't expect much given the location next to a strip mall, but it turned out to be great. The room was very quiet, spacious, clean, and recently redone; there was totally free wifi; and the bed was big and comfortable. The shower had good pressure and lots of hot water. I noticed the bathroom sink was clogged and mentioned it to the room cleaner, and someone came to fix it immediately. Also, I actually found the location next to a Wal-Mart and Price Chopper very convenient. I was able to walk over there and pick up items I needed.

Room Tip: The upstairs room facing the Bennington Monument have a bit of a view and may be quieter and more pr...
