Can't say how thankful I am to be staying at the Red Sled Motel. The owners, John and his wife, have been the nicest, most helpful people. The rooms are very comfortable and homey. We're hiking the Appalachian; John helped me get to and from a doctor, and made some good local dinning recommendations. We're staying another night to rest... More

They charge an arm and a leg for a room that is outdated and uncomfortable. TV only got a couple stations with very poor reception. Staff didn't know how to operate TVs to get more channels. Air Conditioning unit didn't work at all, and none of the windows would open. It was like a furnace in there. No extras either... More

We are responding in kind to “Horrible”comments On the evening in question; a gentleman called us and asked for a hiking rate for one person, he was told the hiking rate for one but then added that there might be two persons, he was then informed that there would be $10.00 per person extra. Sometime later, two men came to... More

My hiking partner and I booked into the Red Sled to re-supply while through-hiking the Appalachian Trail and couldn't have received better treatment or met two nicer, more helpful people than the proprietors. The room was neat and clean and our laundry was done and returned promptly. Not only that but John, the proprietor, took us into Manchester whenever we... More

A mom and pop motel run by a lovely couple. They invited me for a drink around the campfire. It's nothing fancy, but it's clean and the beds are comfortable. Nice outdoor pool. They have ROKU and Netflix and WiFi, free.

This is not a hotel you want to stay at if you have another choice. Our room was very outdated and very musty. No screens on the windows, no vent in the bathroom to reduce the moisture. Tried to put the heat on and it didn't work. The room was way over priced for what you got.

Sirs, A very gracious lady checked this individual in, off the road; He apparently liked our establishment and the price immediately and was given the key to the room.Somehow he could not perform the simple act of unlocking the door; so I was summoned to his aid. After gaining entry for two minutes, including turning the bed back, turning the... More

Its exactly what you might imagine. Not in a bad way, its not a resort. Its not the Equinox. This is a hotel room. A place st seep before you ski your second day. Or a place to air out your pack in summer. Easy drive to town. Convenient and easy to find. Clean and tidy inside. Water is warm,... More

I had to visit Manchester VT for a business trip and the Red Sled Motel was recommended by a partner. The room had been newly renovated and very charming with soft pastel colors. Beautiful swimming pool and stocked trout pond. The weather was hot but the central A /C was very quiet. Another feature was Internet TV with a choice... More

My husband and I stopped for a overnight stay while on a road trip. We called late (9:30pm), and they graciously got up and booked us (Sweet couple). Reasonable rate. At first room seem clean. Dated, but clean. Within a minute of being in bed I started itching from head to toe. Then started smelling a foul smell. But couldn't... More

I was the officer on duty when a course, abrupt female called and asked if we were pet friendly. I asked how big the pet was? I was told it was a "big dog" We decided to accommodate this Lady as she was already in the driveway, she gave us the impression that she could find no other establishment who... More

Spent last weekend in Manchester. Stayed at the Red Sled again. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The beds are awesome! Good price. The Hullican family are accommodating and helpful. Good location for heading out to visit Landgrove and Weston. Close to Bromley for the Action Park. Farm store right across the street for veggies, cheese and baked goods. The bonfire... More

We were passing through Manchester on our way home from Maine. We decided to take a break on the return trip. Ended up staying two nights. Weather was beautiful, which helped. Room was neatly furnished and clean. The backyard rolls down toward a trout pond filled with numerous brown and brook trout. The big cruiser was at least seven pounds;... More
