During our eleven day vacation throughout New England this was our favorite accommodation! We loved our stay! The room was newly refinished and the shower in the bathroom was huge! We especially enjoyed the view right outside our room. We liked that there are only a few rooms, the area stayed quiet and you get to know other travelers if... More

The Stamford is an old style motel that we found met our needs. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. Rather than go into town for dinner, we ate at the restaurant connected to the motel and found it had excellent food and good service. After dinner, we sat around the fire pit with other guests and Karen, the property... More

After a disappointing night at the Four Winds Country Motel we checked two days early and got a room att he Stamford Motel. Room was just redone with a newly decorated bath. Just perfect for us. Trying Nippers for dinner. So far a welcome change to our first night in Manchester

Just needed a place for a couple of nights. Room was clean, quiet and the bathroom recently redone - that alone is a treat. Enjoyed the chair on the porch with a peaceful view, but didn't get to the the evening activity involving the fire pit (next time). Yes there was a big flatscreen TV in the room, so I... More

So I'm sure why we picked the Stamford but we did with so many choices in Manchester. We wanted an affordable place to stay and we loved it. Karen was nice and helped us out by sending us to Hildene, VT Country Store in Weston, and a great hike up Mount Equinox. We dined with them twice once for dinner... More

Most motels experiences are essentially the same from stay to stay. While understandable, one of the things I really appreciate about the Stamford Motel is the owners' commitment to continuously improving the amenities for their guests. Since last Fall, Adam and Karen have completed a lovely outdoor stone patio for dining and a fire pit for evening lounging. It's beautiful... More

Our family recently stayed at the Stanford Motel. We were very pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms as well as the wonderful view of Mt. Equinox. The inn keepers were warm, friendly and extremely welcoming. Their location is close enough to walk to town and enjoy the many shops Manchester has to offer. Nippers Cafe which is... More

We were looking for a little getaway for our anniversary. We came across the Stamford, as we pulled in we were met by the owner Karen, very friendly and welcoming. She let us view the room and then also let us get into it early that day. Our room was very clean, with a nice country feel, lots of natural... More

My husband and I spent the past weekend in Manchester, VT, for a fly fishing course at Orvis. We chose The Stamford Motel for our lodging out of many possibilities. (Room 7, king size bed) While this is not luxury hotel, it is reasonably priced, comfortable, and met all our needs. The bathroom has been recently remodeled with a nice... More
