My husband and I took my Mom and her boyfriend here for a one night stay to celebrate her birthday. Let me just start by saying that hubby and I are regulars of Vermont travel and this place by far was one of if not the best place we've stayed. You'll notice right as you pull into their driveway that the grounds are kept up beautifully and much pride is put into the upkeep. Upon entering, we were cheerfully greeted by Jake their Golden Retriever who I immediately fell in love with! He guided us to the front desk where Sal and Trish (the Husband and Wife Innkeeper team) welcomed us with a smile and personalities that made us feel like we we've known them for years!
We instantly felt at home!
They have an adorable cozy lobby with comfy couches and a fireplace that I'm sure is beautiful during the winter months, and a bar that lets you enjoy a cocktail before turning in for the night without the worry of driving.
oh, and let me just say.....Sal, the innkeeper even took the time to sit and have a beverage with us and Trish chatted with us from behind the bar.... where does that happen????
The rooms were very clean and well kept, and the breakfast thats included in the morning was a nice little bonus.
The location is great for shopping in the center, and very close to Bromley and Stratton mountain.
We will be back without a doubt, and would recommend this place to anyone!!!!!!
Thank you Sal & Trish for making our stay so wonderful!!!! See you soon!

This is a wonderful place to stay if you are visiting the Manchester area. It is very comfortable and beautifully maintained. Our room was spacious, and spotlessly clean. The owners are very nice and friendly. A full, cooked-to-order breakfast is provided each morning in a comfortable dining room. Rates for rooms are extremely reasonable, especially when you consider breakfast is included. My wife and I were visiting the area for the second time ( we had stayed at the Equinox two years ago, as a 25th wedding anniversary present to ourselves); we stayed three nights at the Olympia, and couldn't have been more pleased. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in the area.

As soon as you drive up you can tell that somebody cares about this place by how well kept the property appears. The rooms are clean and the owners Sal and Trish are accommodating and attentive, and make you feel welcome and at home. The breakfast is fantastic - made to order, not something you expect from a Motel. It's clear how much the owners care about their customers and making their "Inn" a special place. We definitely recommend the Olympia and will be staying there again.

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor with a little balcony overlooking the back yard and pool. We sat o...

My husband and I enjoy quick weekend trips on the motorcycle. We live near Atlantic City, NJ and decided to travel to Manchester, VT. We always check trip advisor for the area we are looking to visit. The Olympia Lodge stood out as the place to go. It is right on 7A and set back nestled in the Mountains. We were very impressed. Minutes to downtown for dinner, or browsing in the shops. We rode some beautiful roads in the mountains near Stratton, Bromley, and Mt. Equinox. We had to visit The Vermont Country Store in Weston, VT. The innkeepers Sal & Trish are genuinely friendly and accommodating. We had a drink in the bar, breakfast was terrific. Our room was quiet, comfortable, slept like a baby! Great conversation. We really felt welcome. Thank you ! We would highly recommend staying here.

Charming owners.
Rooms basics but adequate.
Simple but tasty breakfast.
No heat in rooms yet so we were a little cold and only one blanket on bed.
Pleasant place but we would not return, where we normally stay was fully booked.

Room Tip: Rooms on back so you do not here road traffic
