On a drive around New England this two-night stay at the Stamford Motel was the best - made by the genuine welcome by the owner, Karen. The room we had was large and comfortable, with a clean bathroom (shower & toilet, no bath.) It also has a lovely verandah and other outside seating, with a fire pit in the evenings,... More

What's not to like! The room, the views, the food, the great wine list and most of all the staff. We have stayed here twice and will be back. Nippers café has all that you could ask for and more. I have dined at many of the top restaurants in the Boston area, (and paid a lot more) but the... More

When we checked in the woman told us she had given us a very large room that she thought we would like. The room itself was very large, but the stairs going up to it was very narrow and very steep. The windows were half windows, very high up on the wall. I had to stand on tiptoe to see... More

Yes, I had given you the nicest and newest renovated room and I wish I hadn't waisted it on someone who isn't appreciative. The room was also an upgrade from what you had booked. You booked a room with two doubles and I gave you a room with a single full size bed and one queen. The room that you... More

The motel was oke by itself although beds were short. The adjacent restaurant claimed dinner and breakfast. But..... breakfast was not available earlier than 8 am which was not helpful with a long travel day ahead. This excluding the 20 minutes until the breakfast was served and the many items on the menu not being available.

We stopped in for a night while on a motorcycle trip. The rooms are immaculate. The beds are very comfortable. The dining is tremendous! The breakfasts are superb! Karen the proprietor went out of her way to provide all of the amenities we could have wanted including great conversation and cocktails around their new outdoor fire pit. It doesn't get... More

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
