"Accommodating staff, great functional room"
Paradise Inn met our requirements perfectly after a very long drive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, Comfortable, and Reasonably Priced"
I was quite pleased with my stay at the Paradise Inn. My room was clean and comfortable. While the room was a little dated, it did not detract from its serviceability. The room did include a modern, descent sized flat screen television. The staff was helpful and genuinely wanted to make sure I enjoyed my stay. More than once I was asked whether I was […] satisfied with my room and the service I received. I can honestly say I was pleased with each. Thanks Paradise Inn.

"This facility was once a top notch hotel."
This hotel needs a refurbishing. It's seen it's better days. It's old fashioned and needs to be spruced up to bring it back to the hotel it once was. The main problem for our disappointment was a stale smell in our room. Almost like someone had smoked and tried to cover up the smell with something. It was terrible and I kept blowing my nose during our […] stay, but only in the room. The staff was pleasing and helpful. The facilities were ok if you don't care about mediocrity. But it wasn't over and above what we are accustomed to, and make us come back to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. On reading other reviews, we brought our own coffee maker for our room. But they had coffee in lobby. Short walk up the hill to Old Bennington. Hotel had a nice handout with a walking tour. Pool looked great but we were there in late Sept and it was too cold.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff were very friendly and most helpful...every single one! That said, the room was sadly out of date and smelled damp and musty. There is no breakfast included or even a coffee maker in the room. Coffee and tea is available in the main lobby, but we were in building three. Not helpful if you like to take coffee in your robe and slippers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Able to walk downtown"
We have been there many numerous times in the past 11 yrs. the only thing we could have used was a bigger tv. it was only an old 20inch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Quite, and add a quite for our stay. Will book again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wish we had longer than one night"
Although the check in was a little problematic, once the issue was solved, it was a great night's stay. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable. The town was great, but they do close down early, so we had to make a few phone calls before finding someplace to have dinner after 8:30. We chose this hotel because we knew after a long day of driving, […] we would want an outdoor area to enjoy being outside, with a little bit of cover if the rain in the forecast was actually going to end up falling. When we checked in, we were given a room that did not have outdoor access, which the hotels.com website for the hotel specifically said came with every room booked. After going back and forth with the front desk person, asking to move our room (which she wasn't exactly too keen on doing) and finally showing her the fine print on my reservation from hotels.com, she eventually moved the room. The only time I've ever had to explain to someone in customer service that I don't care about their business to business relationship, that I only want what I've been told I was getting. At any rate, once we were in the room, and could relax, everything was great. I would recommend this as a place to stay if you don't mind a place with a little age, but that's in a great little town and is clean and comfortable! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice being right in Bennington!"
Emotional. We dropped our daughter at college. Paradise Inn was a welcome rest stop in beautiful Bennington, VT.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Place for Pooches"
Personnel were solicitous and helpful with local information. We brought our dog, and everyone made him feel welcome, too! Nice pool in a lovely setting: hammock, gazebo, comfortable outdoor furniture. Wi-Fi worked fine in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rooms fine, great pool area"
Visited with my husband and two year son. The pool area and large enclosed lawn were perfect for my son. The room was basic, not great, but not dirty or anything. We'd stay again if we had reason to be in Bennington. Honestly, the town itself was more of a disappointment but the hotel was fine. In fact, great for the very low rate of $80 in August.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very pleasant stay"
Very nice room. Quite large with a king bed. The bed was slightly too firm for me but not excessively so. Note: there is no elevator so if you can't do stairs be sure to specify a ground floor room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for a trip to the Green Mountains"
Paradise Inn made a great 1 night stop during our trip to the Green Mountains. The room was comfortable and clean and the staff was friendly. It's just a block or two outside of downtown Bennington, so it's an easy walk to restaurants, and the hotel itself is set back from the road so the noise from traffic is reduced.Genuine Expedia guest review
The beds could have been more comfortable. The pool area was really nice. The location was central to everything. The hotel/room were clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent place to crash"
It was tough to find the hotel up behind other buildings with a drive in disrepair. Night deskman was helpful and friendly, day staff had to be dragged out of her office and was brusque at best. Room fine, other than waterproof covering on the mattress that made moving very loud. I wonder if we tripped into a local no-tell motel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Basic Hotel"
Very pleasant but basic. Attractive but small swimming pool. Large and clean room with iron and ironing board, but no coffeemaker and no refrigerator. in the laundry facilities there is only one washer and dryer, so the wait can be long if others are using it. Very nice and helpful staff. Entrance is on a main road, so not difficult to find.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Acceptable if others not available."
Obvious efforts to update older facility, but not quite there yet. Courteous at desk. However, set-back location and office not easy to find after dark. Beds a bid saggy, but not terrible; pillows a bit firm. Parking and roadway could use a topping. Lovely lawn and pool area at rear.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely outdoor pool"
My wife, who is a water aerobics instructor, likes to stay in hotels with pools. Although I was skeptical about an outdoor pool in Vermont, even in August, my wife found it perfect. Large, very clean, in a lovely garden setting, and with comfortable water temp. Inn is a little dated, but in good shape, and very conveniently located just a few blocks […] west of the town center. Great place to stay for exploring southern Vermont or the Berkshires. Would definitely stay again, and recommend to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"3.8? NO WAY!"
Again, another sub-par motel with a high rating. Our room stunk, literally. It smelled like old dirty socks. In fact, after a few hours it became nauseating. The wi-fi didn't work most of the night. The bathrooms had hairs on the floor and sink. Parking was inconvenient. Check in took way longer than necessary. The room was dated -- like from the 60s […] or 70s. The TV was from the 70s -- literally an old picture tube TV that had lines going through it and the color was wrong. What a joke. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"ok for one night"
The Paradise Inn was ok for one night, but I'm not sure I'd stay there again. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Location was great- just a few blocks from downtown Bennington. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. Overall the place is a bit dated, but clean. However our bed wasn't very comfortable and the constant dripping from the a/c […] upstairs onto our a/c unit drove us crazy. We had to put a towel out there to muffle the sound so we could sleep. I would have been even more annoyed if the room had cost more. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay for one night and are ok w/ lack of creature comforts it's ok.

"Peace and quiet"
There is something special about the grounds that surround this hotel. One can truly just relax and feel at peace while walking along the grass - or by taking a swim. The tennis courts and shuffle board courts are a little run down but it adds to the overall character of this hotel. I really love staying here with my family each year for a night or […] two and I am considering staying for an entire week next year. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Over all a very good experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I wish that there had been a breakfast served. A continental breakfast seems to be the norm at most motels. Also, although there were three people in our party, the maid service routinely left only towels and cups for two. A little inconvenience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for price and location. Dirty and outdated."
Check in was pleasant. While walking the hall to get to the room was dark and dingy. Very poor lighting. The room was outdated and dirty. Would not reccomend for a 'romantic gateaway'.Genuine Expedia guest review
very very nice.Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pool area very nice. Staff very nice and eager to help. Room average, needs to be updated, but was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming Fifties style hotel"
Friendly staff, normal rooms, comfortable beds, all with this feeling of a 1950s luxury hotel that has aged gracefully. The gardens are a bit overgrown in a nice and natural way. The pool is a neat shape, amd thepatio is wonderful flagstone instead of concrete. There's a hammock outside, and a nice floral gazebo. They have these really pillaresque trees […] that are remniscient of any 50s movie or landscape. The supposed musty smell actually seems to be new paint. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Across from Hemmings Perfect for Cruise in."
Even after reading good reviews was pleasantly surprised, Large room with tall celing and very comfortable bed. Room was very nice and the pool area and grounds were a delight.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quirky place with occasional sitcom scenarios"
The day was 90 degrees but the pool was chill, some of the guests were a little weird (wouldn't want it any other way), there is an unlimited ice machine and the cool vintage car business Hemmings right across the street (worth a visit).Genuine Expedia guest review
ExcellentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
nice, older motel, room was more than adequate. A little noisy - doors in hallway seemed to slam alot, but not terribly late at night. Very convenient to rest of Bennington. would have liked a refrigerator .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A VERY PLEASANT STAY!!"
From the moment we walked in the young lady at the counter was great. Our room was wonderful and the cost was below what you would normally pay for such a room. It is not a 5 star hotel but it does not advertise to be. Next stay in Bennington we are booking here. A great experience!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was not as appealing as the picture posted."
Room had a musty smell especially at the closet area. The bed spreads and pillow shams were dated. There was no coffee cream available in the am until after 8:00 am or so. The person at desk did not know this and then had to call someone to go out and buy some which took at least 40 minutes.Would not stay there again. The price for the room was was […] too high for the quality.Also carpet had too may stains. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Stayed here to attend Solid Sound festival..."
Room included a jucuzzi tub and sauna. Refrigerator was in the room also. Back door opened up to very private sitting area and walkway to beautifully landscaped pool. Highly recommend staying here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice place, our room was quiet. But the TV was tiny, hard to see from the bed. Personally, I'd trade the sauna in the bathroom for a larger TV.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a misnomer"
We have stayed in some pretty seedy hotels in the area so we were pleasantly surprised to find out that the Paradise Hotel was well named and not a misnomer. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and most of the rooms look out on the pool. The pool itself is heated, and the terrace around it is paved in slate. There are also bocci balls on the lawn […] for the guests to use. The free coffee in the lobby was very good quality and the beds were quite comfortable. We reserved a room with a sauna, but did not use it since the weather was very hot, although that would be a nice bonus in the winter. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice older hotel"
This is an older hotel, but very comfortable and in pleasant garden setting with nice pool. It's a bit of a walk to town to dinner, but much closer than newer chain hotels in town. There is free coffee, but no free breakfast. We'd stay here again when visiting Bennington.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Paradise in Vermont"
The room was clean, neat and zero smells. The bathroom especially was top notch - shower head a little low for us (we're both 5'11") but the water pressure was excellent. No fridge in the room or coffeemaker but there was ice available and not bad coffee downstairs in the morning. Could use a little updating (carpet, paint, etc.) but overall it was […] just right.

very comfortable stay. liked my room a lot. the gardens were a bit disappointing. nothing like in the pix. the pool and hot spa were closed due to maintenance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good choice for value"
Although the wifi was down, everything else was fine -- clean, spacious, friendly staff. No frills but no frights. Good value choice. Would stay again for my purpose - getting close to my bike race the next day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
