I have stayed at this Motel many times and cannot say enough good things about the Knotty Pine! I have to say that I am biased because as a child my parent took me to this hotel when it was called "Leon's Knotty Pine" (Not sure but I assume someone named "Leon" owned it first?

Thank you for taking the time to review us! I am the third owner of the Knotty Pine. I purchased it from parents, Barb and Tom Bluto in 2005. They purchased it from Leon Boutin in 1972. Leon and his wife were looking to retire and asked my father, who was the manager of the Best Western up the street, if he was interested. Leon built the motel in 1948. It started first as just a few cabins he moved down from a campground in Arlington. A few years later he added indoor plumbing and a few more units. By 1965 all 20 units were built and featured Cable TV and in room phones-very modern! A pool was added as well. We are so proud to this is the 70th anniversary of the Knotty Pine and even prouder to claim that only 2 families have kept this mom and pop alive! Leon and his wife Bea were Innkeepers because they loved the people. My parents claimed the same and after 14 years of my management, guests say that our hospitality is legendary. We will look forward to your return!

We spent one night on our way through Bennington. It was a perfect little place. Very clean and the owner was very friendly and helpful. The room was fairly spacious and had all the amenities of a chain, but with more charm. Would definitely stay again.

Cute 50’s style motel, drive right up to your room. Knotty pine interior, comfortable beds and very clean! Hosts were very nice, recommended places for both dinner and breakfast. Would stay here again if in the area.

This was a 50's motor inn which had been renovated. The service was poor. We had trouble contacting the manager to advise the room was cold. They had to call an electrician who advised they were simply out of fuel! The management never even apologized. The room was clean and

We’re very sorry for the inconvenience. In fact the plumber discovered we were out of fuel, something that we could not have anticipated pated as we are on an automatic delivery system and the oil company should’ve delivered. It was a Sunday evening so it did take longer than we would’ve hoped to remedy the situation but the heat was back on within 2 hours. Thankfully it was a mild evening, some of our guests were running their air conditioners and once the heat was back on we always supply plenty of heat and hot water. We appreciate you commenting on the cleanliness of the room and as we were built 70 years ago we are pleased when guests notice we keep up with renovations. The TVs are 32” flat screens, brand new last year and appropriately sized for the room but we understand that most guests have much larger flat screens in their own homes.

Centrally located, cozy rooms, and clean. A great value for families albeit small, and may be overpriced for solo travelers. The motel's focus on being green such as recycling is much appreciated. Many eateries within walking distance and the very busy Fuji restaurant is right
