I thought I had submitted a review previously but don't see it so I felt I really needed to because this is the kind of place that truly brings the idea of New England hospitality to life. Is it a 5 star resort , no. Does it have a NYCity style gourmet restaurant, no. Is it warm, friendly, clean, and... More

We spent two nights at The Stamford over the Thanksgiving holiday. I chose this motel as a result of the positive reviews as well as the close proximity to where we were celebrating the holiday. Our room was clean and as mentioned, we appreciated the convenience of the motel being very close to shopping and our families home. The cost... More

For the price in Manchester VT it's a no-brainer. The room was clean and the king bed was comfy -- the bathroom was small but clean and modern. They have a great firepit and a restaurant [we did not have time to try it] but it looked nice with a good selection of food. We used to live in Manchester... More

Spent a couple of nights here at the beginning of October. The room was comfortable and clean. We had breakfast and dinner at Nippers. All the meals were good. My wife particularly enjoyed the roasted red peppers. Karen was very welcoming and helpful throughout.

We spent a delightful two nights at the Stamford Inn. The room was large and clean, and the beds were comfy. This quiet jewel gets you close to the action without miring you in the noise and bustle. The restaurant serves great food, too - tasty, and beautifully presented. The cherry on top was the friendly, helpful service we received,... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, my husband and I booked a two night stay at the Stamford motel, as part of our road trip through New England. We were given room 7, which we found to be absolutely lovely and welcoming, and spotlessly clean. It had a coffee making machine and a small fridge. A hairdryer was also... More

At that time, the woman who took the call said it was OK, the reservation was cancelled, and she said NOTHING ELSE.
