“Reasonably priced placed to stay in Manchester”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights while in town for a funeral. Definitely book a room in the annex. Rooms are much bigger there. Tried to get a microwave, but was told no. The rooms in the annex have a small kitchen area with a coffee pot and an refrigerator and a sink. Furniture is past its prime, but it functions fine. The couch could have used a good vacuuming. Otherwise the place was reasonably clean. Good quality pretty new towels. There are hairdryers in the annex, although it is not mentioned on their website. I had brought my own because I couldn't get a straight answer. Easy to get to from the highway and only a few minutes into town. Wi-fi is iffy--sometimes worked and sometimes didn't. I was in room 212.

Room Tip: Get a room in the annex.

We only stayed there for one night but really like it. Jack at reception was very friendly and helpful and we had some good talks. Thanks for that. The room was quite big, clean and had everything we needed. It is not the newest motel anymore but you have a pleasant sleep for a good price. The motel is a bit outside of Manchester but by car it is less than five minutes to all the outlet shops and restaurants. The motel doesn´t offer any breakfast but there a lot of cafes or restaurants in Manchester were you can have breakfast. Recommendation issued!

The Chalet motel is a gem, I had called the beginning of the week as we had planned a motorcycle trip and wanted to stay in the area, forgetting it was a long weekend. The gentleman who answered the phone told me if I called back on Thursday he would see what he had, and would let us book for just the one night. Called back and was given a large room in the Annex. It's quiet and off the road, the place was spotless and had everything you need for a comfortable stay. The grounds are set up with chairs & BBQs you could use for a family get together. This is not a five star hotel, it's a little gem, run by nice people in a great area.

Room Tip: The Annex is a great area for families as there's room for the little ones to play and it's...

I'm writing this from my motel room on our last night here, already feeling sad that we're leaving! The room (#137) is HUGE! It overlooks an enormous yard area with an adorable wooden playground nestled in the middle. There are little (tasteful!) bbqs and wooden chaise lounge chairs with nice cushions and tables in the yard area. The location of the motel is perfect -- super close to the highway and a 1 minute ride into the center of Manchester...and yet, it feels like a secluded hideaway with a beautiful mountain backdrop. The owners welcome pets (with a very nominal charge). The room was spotless and the bed was the most comfortable bed I've slept in in a very long time. The shower was okay -- good for this area (but I'm really spoiled b/c we have the best shower ever at home). The owners seem super nice and incredibly accommodating. We will definitely book here again. We've been to about 6 different motels in the area and found this one to be the best value with the biggest, cleanest rooms (although we loved the Aerie Inn as well, which has since closed). Highly recommend The Chalet!

Room Tip: We were in the Annex section - which is across the street -- and would definitely book there again...

One night in a pricey town. Plenty of high-end restaurants and pricey places to stay.
Not the Chalet Motel. We were given a room in the annex (a set of rooms across the street
from the main part of the Motel. "Room" is inadequate. It was a suite. The price was
$79.20 for the 2. The bedroom had a window looking out onto a back lawn that had a
grill, presumably for the use of guests, although we did not have time.

When I arrived the owners were celebrating a birthday and promptly offered me a piece of
cake. Admittedly, our timing (after Labor Day, before Foliage season) meant that we would
get reduced rates in many places, but this value was unexpected. Nothing fancy here, but
on my Top Ten for best value. I booked with owners. They asked if wifi was needed. It
worked fine.

Stayed here in May with my elderly mother. Very large rooms, excellent cross ventilation, table, microwave, "kitchen" sink, OK bathroom. A refrigerator was supplied upon our request. Walls are a bit thin and had a problem with late night loud TV next door, but they turned it off upon first request. Price was right. Not fancy, but I would happily stay here again. Where is that elusive ice maker???

Room Tip: We were in the "annex." Don't know if that makes a difference.

The Chalet is one of those funky family owned roadside motels. It's not fancy, and the carpet and furnishings are a little worn and dated, but it's clean. The bathroom was fairly up to date, and the wireless worked well (always a plus in the mountains). There was a refrigerator in the room. The little inground pool was sparkling, and it was quiet at night, despite being right off Route 30 and 7A. It's very convenient to town and the horse show grounds, and at $130 a night the price was right. I would stay there again.
