“great location, nice owners”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

I stayed here for one night. rooms are very clean and owners are very friendly. it is 5 minutes drive from Manchester centre and has a great view over jungle. Also there is an outside restaurant which allows you to sit and watch the area and enjoy your meal.
Since owners are living at the same place, they've took care of every small details and you feel really comfortable over there.

If I go to Vermont again, I would defiantly stay in this place.

Location, location, location - it seems so funny to me when people write that we don't have a great location. I never understand why. So happy that the location worked out for you.

Thanks, Karen & Adam

We stayed for one night at the Stamford, and had a great time! We stayed in room #7. It was spacious, comfortable, everything we wanted. There was an air conditioning unit, which was a life saver in the 90 degree weather. The Stamford was clean and well kept. The check in was a breeze and the employees were kind and professional. Upon returning to the Manchester area, we will definitely be booking with The Stamford!

We're glad we found this cozy little motel. We regret to have stayed only one night and eaten only one dinner and one breakfast. The service was great, the staff was very friendly. Awesome mountain view.

We made our reservation by phone and spoke to Karen. She was warm, friendly and caring. Upon arrival she remembered our conversation. Check in was quick and easy. She offered helpful advice about area restaurants, attractions, etc. She offered to make dinner reservations.
Our room was clean. Multiple windows provided cross ventilation but there is a ac unit if it were needed. On site restaurant (Nipper's cafe) was quick, easy, reasonable and delicious.
Location was convenient to downtown.

Green Features: I am glad to see the motel is concerned about the environment, as all motels should be!

The hotel was a great find. The hotel was clean, comfortable and included a great view of the mountains from the porch. The restaurant right next door had good food and friendly service. I highly recommend the motel and will be back form another stay.

We found this motel on booking.com and it was priced right. We booked for one night and ended up staying for 2. We had room 4 which was charming and had been renovated. The views out the window of the mountain were great the flower gardens were almost amazing. I say almost because they are just starting to come up but they will be amazing in six weeks. We ended up dining in the cafe for breakfast and it was outstanding. Adam was quite helpful in assisting us in hikes to do in the area and in regards to getting to the train the next day in Albany. This certainly isn't a four star hotel but if you are looking for a great price with clean rooms we highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: enjoyed room 4

Excellent room. Clean, updated, and very reasonable. Karen is extremely helpful and friendly as well as the rest of the staff. Very close to downtown and Bromley. Will recommend to anyone traveling to Southern Vermont. Kid-friendly place as well, lots of room outside for them to play. Nipper's Cafe is excellent as well!
