Every year we go to Manchester, VT for Thanksgiving. We decided to try the Stamford motel since my parents said that numerous renovations had taken place. The price was right at $80 a night - the room was clean, the shower was hot, and the room was comfortable and the mattresses were comfortable. The ownvers were a really nice couple and very helpful - our car wouldn't start on Sunday and they had connections with a local mechanic to come look at it luckily it was an easy fix and they allowed us to stay until 4pm due to the circumstance with no addtional charge. They went above and beyond the call of duty. Since it is an annual event we will be back again next year. The place must be awesome in the summer with all of the gardens.

I was given three different deplorable rooms is different states of disgust until I gave up and just left. I later got a credit card bill with a charge of $1,500. The owner claimed that I left the hot water running. Stay Away from this place!

This place is inexpensive, relative to others in the area. The owners seemed to be nice folks. Our two rooms smelled like my grandmother's basement. You know, too much moisture and not enough air circulation. This was probably an upscale motel in the 1960's.
It's Vermont, so you expect to rough it a little, but give me a Hampton Inn anyday.
On the whole, Manchester is lovely to see and that's as far as it goes. Restaurants, hotels and the general service level at businesses were just okay.

Manchester, VT is one of our favorite places to stay, and we usually patronize the Battenkill Inn B&B. But this past March, we were looking for an inexpensive one-night getaway and decided to stay at the Stamford Inn, decidely cheaper than most of the other inns and motels in the area. Yes, we saved money, but we decided it wasn't worth it. We were given one of four upstairs rooms in the center of the motel. The nice part about the room was that it was quiet and there was a small roof-top deck off the side of the room (perfect for smokers, though I'm not a smoker). But these were the only nice things about the room. The motel was shabby, outdated, and cramped. The shower was miniscule--there was barely any room to move. And the bathoom, as well as the room's decor, was dour and depressing. This inn sorely needs some TLC.

For over twenty years we have been coming back to the Stamford. Albeit a small motel, the owners are always helpful and provide rooms which are very comfortable, complete w/fridge and micro and in-room coffee. Two doubles are always available, and it's set back from the highway ... nice and quiet and good views of the Equonox Mountains.
Found them to be the best value for the dollar ... others at least 20% more in cost and less amenities.

We were visiting Southern Vermont in early June and stayed at the Stamford Motel for two nights. It was a nice, cozy, affordable option, compared with other motels in the area. It has well-kept grounds and is set back from the road so it's quiet at night. I would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a cozy and affordable place to stay.
