Governor's Rock Motel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Shaftsbury
Reviewed 27 August 2012

We had a reunion and many family members stayed at the Governor's Rock. It is an "old school" style motel that includes many modern amenities (i.e. flat screen t.v.s, microwave ovens, memory foam mattresses (in Room 5 at least), etc.). The rooms are small, but they are comfy with lots of personal touches in each room. Everything is very clean. The owners are a very nice couple. Stay there: you won't regret it.

Governor's Rock Motel is very comfortable with cozy furniture, cute little table and chairs, microwave, good-sized mini-frig, and quiet. The lady who owns the motel made sure we had everything we needed and took time to visit. The slower pace of life is much needed and refreshing to find as one travels. The home-made coffeecake in the office, the next morning, was delicious! Everything is spotlessly clean! There are flowers outside and the charm of this delightful motel is outstanding. We would stay here again!

Such a nice little place. Room was very comfortable, nice bed, love seat, microwave, fridge and nice tv. It was perfect with my one year old, nice big yard in the back for him to run around in. You can tell the owner puts a lot of love and care into the place, right down to the landscaping and flowers. Would definitely stay there again.

My nine yr old Rhodesian Ridgeback and i loved this place! A truly charming find on lovely historic route 7a. It felt like a European B&B to me. We felt so welcome. Our room had a sliding door at the back - perfect for a dog to exit to a huge yard of great smells bordered by woods. The room was cozy and immaculate and we felt so at home we stayed a second night. I would return in a heartbeat! Great warm coffee cake in the a.m. a nice send-off!.

Room Tip: We had the far end room to the right as you face the motel. the sliding door at back is perfect for...

I stayed here for one night while visiting Bennington. My room had a queen size bed and a love seat, plus a quiet patio out back with table and chairs -- a great place to sit and enjoy the bird song all around. The mattress was very comfortable, as were the fluffy pillows. The bathroom and small shower were spotlessly clean. There was also a new-looking fridge, microwave, and flat screen TV. My only complaint was that the wireless internet signal was quite weak.

My husband, my dog, and I stayed at the Governor's Rock Motel one night in August. We were on our way from northern Vermont to our home in PA. The motel was very clean and comfortable. There was a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in the room. There is a nice TV and the furnishings were nice. The outdoor areas were pleasant with flowers and several seating areas. In the AM, there was coffee, muffins and coffee cake in the office. I would definitely stay here again.

We were just passing through on our way to a wedding in Burlington. Since it was the Friday of Labor Day weekend, other places in Bennington required a two night minimum. They did not. This motel and the rooms are dated, but I'll take clean and comfortable over slick, modern, and otherwise flawed any day! There may be more glamorous places to stay in the general area, but dollar for dollar, this place offers great value.
