“Amazing gardens, friendly staff - wonderful get-away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2010

My husband and I were looking for a peaceful, quiet spot to relax and recharge yet still close to good restaurants and activities. This motel met all of our needs. The rooms were well appointed, spotless, comfortable and the staff friendly and efficient. The pool and gardens were an added bonus!
We will return in the winter to ski as it's an ideal location for that, too!

I travel from Keene, NH for business in Manchester and have stayed at the Stamford due to the fabulous personal touch the owners extend. The grounds with beautiful flowers in July as well as the nice renovations to the rooms with good rates keep my return. It is also only 2 minutes to Manchester Country Club! Its rare to find a nice family owned relaxed atmosphere in the bussle of Manchester.

After years of coming to Vermont for the Horse Show, this was the first time we stayed at the Stamford Motel.

The motel's rooms are charming and clean with wifi, air conditioning, and comfortable beds. The gardens are beautiful and well-maintained. There is a small pool on the grounds as well.

The owners are friendly and personable and are extremely eager to make your stay enjoyable and for the price you can't beat it.

I intend to stay here again on our next visit to Manchester and would recommend the Stamford.

"CHARMING AND CLEAN" and it was prob $80 - what morecould you want when visiting for the horse show other than a bigger room. Glad everything worked out and hopefully you will continue to stay every July while riding horses - many thanks for writing the review.

We were going to be getting in late, the key was in the door as Karen said it would be. The rooms were clean and warm (very important to me!). Everything worked properly, we had more than enough towels (teenagers!), more than enough hot water, toilet paper, etc. I would highly recommend The Stamford Motel to anyone visiting the Manchester Vermont area. Very easy to find in Manchester!

Thanks so much for staying with us and making us aware of the late check-in. Yes we can just leave the key in the door in the state of VT hopefully that lasts a while. You were a great family and extras were easy to supply you with. Glad it was a great trip. Many thanks for writing this review.
