“Clean and Comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We recently stayed for one night. The accommodations are basic and simple- standard good value economy lodging. The room was clean and the bathrooms were clearly recently redone. It's good for a couple on the road or a business traveler. It's good for a night or two, but anything more you might want to upgrade your stay someplace else.

We recently stayed at the Avalanche Motel ( July 2012). The new owners have done a great job remodeling. Everything was new and freshly painted. The owners were overly friendly and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was great. Kids thought being able to make their own waffle was the best. I would recommend this Motel to anyone. Very family friendly.

We had a family wedding in town and occupied 9 rooms of the motel. We chose the Avalanche because we refused to pay the ridiculous cost of some of the other lodging in town and because pets were welcomed. The owners were a very pleasant and accomodating young family. You could tell they have recently renovated with new paint, carpeting, shower tiles and fixtures. The rooms were not large but very clean and comfortable. The AC worked well and wasn't noisy and each room had a small fridge. We didn't swim in the pool but it looked clean and well cared for. It is only minutes from town with many nearby restaurants. The Avalanche Motel isn't fancy but was everything we needed.

Having stayed at the Avalanche Motel several times over the last few years, I was very pleasantly surprised to see what wonderful changes the new owners have made to the property since my last stay (August, 2011). My room was spotlessly clean with fresh paint and a fully renovated bathroom (new fixtures, floor, etc). The room featured a new digital programmable air conditioner and a microwave and small fridge. Bedding was clean and bright. The lobby has undergone a total transformation and now features a small breakfast area with several tables and chairs. A basic breakfast is included in the room price. I travel with a small dog and was happy to see that dogs are still welcomed at the Avalanche. I will definitely be returning!

Perfect place for a quick stay off route 7. Clean, warm and friendly. Plus the only inn in town who would take a single Saturday night stay. Thank you!

My husband and myself stayed here for 2 nights to visit Manchester, Vt. The good things are the location to the town. Good for shopping and places to eat. The hotel was priced lower then most I checked, it was clean and recently updated. The breakfast was normal, nothing fancy, but included, so that is a plus. I was glad we were only staying two nights because the rooms are very small, no place to hang anything up, it was good we had no dressy clothes. The ice machine was broke, so had to ask the owner if you needed ice. The beds were not very soft, (I'm typing this has I'm in a motel in Burlington, with the best mattress!) So If you plan only a few days it would be ok. My son likes to snowboard and we thought this might be a place for him to stay next winter, but the room would be way to small to fit every thing he needs to bring along.
