“Very good value! Highly recommend!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stayed there on our way to Mount Equinox and did not expect too much because of the low price. We were pleasantly surprised! The room was clean and was cozy. The bed was firm and comfy, the air conditioning worked perfectly.The only thing I would suggest is to get rid of the carpet. Then it would be perfect. The staff was very pleasant to deal with. A few little details to take care of and they could charge twice as much. We would go there again.

Thanks for the review and thanks for the thought on the carpet. It is actually only a few years old but I will say that you are right and that is a project for this spring. Thanks, Karen

Breakfast eggs from the chickens in the backyard, homemade hot sauce from homegrown peppers, fresh lettuce from the garden in your salad and a spectacular view to enjoy while dining. Yep, Nipper's Cafe is a great place to eat and hang. My husband absolutely LOVED the corn bread and my crab eggs Benny was deelish. Also, at dinner, do not miss the steamed clams in tomato saffron sauce -- the bread for dipping is divine. Had a great steak too with a spectacular (and yes, homemade) churrasco sauce. AND, the Stamford Motel is a fabulous place to stay! The owners--Adam, Karen and family, are hard working and down-to-earth. They are dedicated to the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. There is no pretense, nothing overpriced....just solid food and service with lots of bang for the buck and then some.

At the end of the day, we enjoyed a glass of wine and the beautiful gardens while our girls enjoyed swimming in the pool. Also, the Stamford Motel is pet friendly. You may catch a glimpse of the owner's furry friends during your stay. Look for the beautiful sassy cat or the baby husky while you are there.

We couldn't have been happier with our time at the Stamford Motel and at Nipper's Cafe. We will definitely be back. Great vibe, great food, great people and fantastic location.

After a lot of research, we decided to book this hotel for our stay in Manchester and are glad we did. When we got to the hotel, we thought it looked a bit tired. We were warmly welcomed by theyu owner and given our key. When we got to the room, we were surprised - it was enormous (we got the upstairs two queen room) and beautifully decorated. We felt like we needed a telephone to call across the room. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. While the tub filler didn't work, the shower was good. Though the location was a bit out of town, that did not prove to be a problem and made for a quiet sleep.

When we woke up in the morning, we went to Nippers for breakfast and were told it was closed. However, the owner told us she could make us breakfast anyway. She then made us some really good omelets.

Though the exterior of this hotel needs a bit of work, our room was great and the owners made the stay a pleasure. This hotel is a good value and I would recommend it to those wanting good accommodations at a reasonable price.

. This motel is very welcoming and nice with a good restaurant. The owner is helpful and friendly.
Three of us had a very large room with two queen size beds with good mattresses. I have stayed there twice this year and enjoyed both stays.

We happily stayed at the Stamford Motel last winter for our second time. We visit Manchester occasionally to see family and it's great to be able to stay in such a comfortable and friendly place without paying a fortune. Karen and Adam are great hosts and my favorite part of the stay is always eating at Nippers Cafe, which has fantastic food. Breakfast at Nippers is my favorite - incredible menu and wonderfully prepared! We usually stay in the upstairs room which accommodates my family nicely, giving us plenty of room. We will definitely be back!

I feel like i stayed at a different inn than that which was reviewed on this site. I was upgraded to a room that was on the second floor (same as the January 2nd 2013 review), and i was extremely happy to see a clean, comfortable room about 1 mi from the center of Manchester Vermont.
I was there on a cycling trip and i didnt want to spend alot of $$. I travel alot (business), and normally stay at luxury hotels but this trip was more about cycling than anything else (i needed a nice bed, working bathroom, a TV and minimal bugs...Man-cation). For the rate paid, I was more than satisfied. Great room, great nights sleep (twice) and absolutely no bugs were seen. Karen was a fantastic host and the restuarant on site had a really interesting menu with great reviews. If Karen reads this, i will be booking the same room at the same time in 2014. Thanks

The stay was great, also the most affordable place to stay in manchester. The place looks beautiful, with flowers and even a henhouse with chickens. really great atmosphere. Comfortable beds and nicely decorated rooms. The owners are great people, and take their time to make you feel at home. I would definitly recommend this place.

The road adjecent to the hotel is a little busy, and you will hear it if you sit at the pool.

Room Tip: Location for all the rooms are probably good. I liked room 6 situated close to the parking lot, pool...

We aim for affordability. Located 1.5 miles from downtown Manchester and offering some of the most beautiful views in town from your motel room. The gardens are gorgeous - some of them need a ton of work while others look great - summer 2014 I will be cutting back. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a nice review and sharing your feed back - we greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Karen
