We have stayed at The Manchester View Motel many times & recently returned for a weekend. The service is always super and any requests honored quickly. We love the rooms, especially the ones with a fireplace, and enjoy the nicely decorated rooms.
I especially love the view from the balcony, surrounded by mountains.
Whenever we return to Vermont, this is the only motel I call. There is a fairly new restaurant right down the street that has a wonderful breakfast menu.
Can't wait until our next visit.

Room Tip: End rooms have the fireplaces, those are the ones we prefer since we usually visit the end of Novemb...

We were so happy to see you again! We very much appreciate that you keep coming back to stay at The Manchester View. Thank you for your kind words about the property. You stayed in a Queen Deluxe with a wood-burning fireplace, a very nice room. We have other rooms that have wood or gas fireplaces and 1 or 2-person spa tubs, in addition to our suites, specialty rooms, and standard queen rooms.

The restaurant you mentioned is Nipper’s Café. We love their food and the owners and staff are great!

We look forward to your next visit; hopefully soon!

We decided to have an adventure road trip with no planning and ended up at the Mountain View on a Saturday evening with no reservations!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They welcomed us, suggested we look at the room 1st, and recommended the Chanticleer Restaurant down the road for dinner.

We were truly stunned when we opened the door to this very modest looking little gem outside of the busy downtown. The room was very large, absolutely beautifully decorated, in every detail. Nothing had been overlooked, be it bedding, lighting, extra seating, a little dining table and prepared stone fireplace. I would have taken the mattress home with me, had it been an option! Whoever decorated the room, has a wonderful talent for making it stunning, yet welcoming!

Then we headed to the recommended restaurant which was perhaps a mile down the road to another beautiful surprise of fine French dining, welcoming staff and beautiful environment. If we could we would give the Mountain View a higher rating. But please do not tell too many people about this gem, for fear we will have trouble getting a reservation in the future!!!!

Thanks so much for the glowing review! We aim to please and are thrilled we exceeded your highest expectations.

It’s cozy to stay in a room with a fireplace on a cold night. We have taken extra care to decorate all of our rooms for each guests’ superior comfort and wonderful experience. Although we do fill up frequently, we do love spontaneous visitors walking in looking for a night’s stay or more.

It’s so great that you got to enjoy Chanticleer; it’s a wonderful restaurant for an extraordinary dining experience. It's one of Manchester's best!

Please return again soon! The area is lovely in every season, and winter is no exception.

Overall, positive stay. We stayed in a suite. There was a lot of room but a lot of wasted room. The bathrooms would benefit with dual sinks. Wallpaper is paper peeling and doors to BR difficult to close. The place just needs a remodel but can't say anything else negative!

Thanks for taking time to give us your opinion about your stay.

Your comment "The place just needs a remodel" is surprising since we just did that.

Other than that, we're glad to hear it was otherwise positive.

Just north of the town with views from the back decks of the rooms looking north, a perfect place to stay in the area. Right off Rt 7 it's a quick drive almost everywhere. Rooms are nice with adequate storage and either a private or shared deck depending on price and location. Most have walk in access but some are walk ups, but all have that spectacular view. Staff is nice and helpful and the price is reasonable. If only the breakfast was a bit better, but nice Keurig coffee maker in the room. Highly recommend.

What a view is right! The views from the decks of our rooms looking north are wonderful. All the rooms have views and are the perfect place to stay in the Manchester and the Mountains area. Our location right off Route 7A is ideal in that we're minutes to all restaurants and attractions, but just far enough away from the busyness of town. Most parking is right outside the door of each room. We do have a few rooms that have parking spaces just steps away, but not far at all.

Thanks for mentioning our staff; they are very nice and helpful. Our prices are in step with local lodging, and sometimes we have specials, as well. Sorry you didn't enjoy our continental breakfast; at $3, some guests like it while others prefer to spend more and get a full breakfast at a restaurants in town. Thanks much for highly recommending the Manchester View! We hope to see you again!

I just wanted to state, for the record, our stay at Manchester View was wonderful. First and formost, the best thing, other than the gorgeous view, was the heavenly mattresses. I slept so soundly and was so taken by the comfort, I tried to take apart the bedclothes to find the name of the mattress.
The staff was friendly and it was great having clean towels and linens each day, and having your bed made each morning:)
The morning breakfast, only $3.00, was greeted by a very sweet young lady who was very polite and friendly.
The area around this hotel had wonderful restaurants, we were referred to a few, and the area itself was just beautiful.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great view, clean and comforting home atmosphere, and bottom line the pricing was good too.
Kudos to the staff and to the owner:) We will definitely refer you and hope to come again in the near future.

Second time we have stayed at Manchester View. Both times in a suite, with gas fireplace, Jacuzzi and a beautiful views of the mountains , The property and accommodations, neat and clean, great value for your money.
Continental breakfast for $3.00 per person. As most Vermont areas pay attention to the season, the rates do vary, even better deal if you can get in between "peaks"
PS: Try Nippers just down the road for dinner. We will return no doubt!

Room Tip: Try to book between seasons, check the rates the difference can be substantial

Thanks for the compliment in visiting us a second time! We appreciate your kind words about our property and value. The continental breakfast is a great deal, available seasonally. And the rates do vary in all of the area, in between the seasons.

We recommend Nippers Café often. Not only is their food good, but they’re really nice people!

Come back again when you’re in the area! Three's a charm!

My husband, puppy, and I stayed for 2 nights in Oct. 2013 and couldn't have been more pleased! We stayed in one of the suites and enjoyed the gas fireplace, two-person jacuzzi, large deck and tvs. The mountain view was spectacular, especially as the leaves were at their "peak". My dog had the run of a grassy slope just outside our room and all the grounds were well-cared for and landscaped beautifully. The room was clean, nicely decorated, and the staff was very nice. We went to the breakfast room and enjoyed the selections -- especially the delicious toasted blueberry muffins! The location was very nice as well -- we had great views, it was quiet and peaceful, but close enough to major roads. I hope to visit the Manchester View again.

It was delightful having all three of you as guests, and we’re glad you enjoyed your stay in one of our suites. The views are wonderful and this year’s autumn season cooperated nicely! Our staff takes pride in their work from the front desk to housekeeping and maintenance, and it shows. The blueberry muffins come fresh directly from a local bakery in Manchester.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon!
