Just outside Williamstown, which has surprisingly few places to stay or eat in the evening. The bathroom tiles were a bit cracked but the room was clean and there was a fridge. Free wifi but very slow - basic email only. Breakfast was basic continental so we drove instead to a very good diner on the 7 towards Williamstown "The...

We even gave them a second chance. On a visit to see our Daughter's new house, that had no furniture yet, we stayed here for 3 days. The room was adequate (It had beds). We had to ask for a 3-prong adapter so we could plug in my wife's CPAP machine. It was cool so we didn't need the A/C....

The staff was very friendly, but that is as far as I can go for a positive review. I stayed in the whirlpool room. It didn't necessarily seem dirty, but not incredibly well-kept. There were a few spiders which isn't that big of a deal, but not typical in hotels. My biggest issue was with the lack of heat. When...

Be advised that the Ladd Brook Inn is not a member of the Bennington Area Chamber of Commerce and is in no way associated with the Bennington Antique Car Show. This is misrepresentation. We have requested that they remove all signage from their premises and web site that gives the impression that they are members. It is our hope that...

Sadly I did not read the reviews of others before I booked my room. Every negative issue was right there to forewarn me. My first room stunk of mildew. It's January and the heat was turned down and never came on. The owners and the caretaker were off premises and not due back for hours after my arrival. The owner...

This motel is dated but adequate for a one night stay. Rooms were spacious and clean, but the bed did have a rubber cover on the mattress that rustled when ever we turned, annoying! Motel was surprisingly popular and almost full by evening. The staff were helpful and provided quite a nice continental breakfast.

Mixed level of cleanliness, in part trying to make tired old rugs, bed etc into something better. Sheets were clean, but not the box springs, mattress like a brick, flat pillows, furniture needs to be scrubbed of ancient dust, perhaps painted, thought jacuzzi had not been scrubbed, looks like spread was new
