Reviewed 28 August 2012

Apparently new owners. Lovely people who always asked how we were doing; genuinely caring about our comfort. The breakfast was simple but perfect. I've had worse at more upscale inns. All I need is OJ, tea/coffee, fresh fruit. This hotel provided that and more, with the typical make-your-own waffles, bagels, bread, cold cereal.
Our King Bedroom was recently painted and had new carpeting; the furniture was old, but functional. The mattress looked new and was comfortable. The bathroom was completely updated and was very, very clean. Set back from Route 30, the hotel was surprisingly very quiet. The accommodations are basic. For $99 a night during summer "high season" in Manchester, the price was right. A comfortable and clean step- up from cabin camping.

Stayed there recently during the horse show. The new owners have made huge improvements. The rooms are small and basic, but clean and comfortable. The bath was brand new with all nice tile. I had a nice quiet room overlooking the backyard with a window that opened. There was no road noise from Route 30 at night. The breakfast was good also, and the juice and fruit were available early in the am. I paid half of what I paid at another hotel in Manchester the previous weekend and slept just as well. It's not fancy, but if you are not there to hang around the hotel it's a perfect place to stay. The owner told me they are going to change the name, and next year it will be an Econo-Lodge.

We recently stayed for one night. The accommodations are basic and simple- standard good value economy lodging. The room was clean and the bathrooms were clearly recently redone. It's good for a couple on the road or a business traveler. It's good for a night or two, but anything more you might want to upgrade your stay someplace else.

We recently stayed at the Avalanche Motel ( July 2012). The new owners have done a great job remodeling. Everything was new and freshly painted. The owners were overly friendly and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was great. Kids thought being able to make their own waffle was the best. I would recommend this Motel to anyone. Very family friendly.

We had a family wedding in town and occupied 9 rooms of the motel. We chose the Avalanche because we refused to pay the ridiculous cost of some of the other lodging in town and because pets were welcomed. The owners were a very pleasant and accomodating young family. You could tell they have recently renovated with new paint, carpeting, shower tiles and fixtures. The rooms were not large but very clean and comfortable. The AC worked well and wasn't noisy and each room had a small fridge. We didn't swim in the pool but it looked clean and well cared for. It is only minutes from town with many nearby restaurants. The Avalanche Motel isn't fancy but was everything we needed.

Having stayed at the Avalanche Motel several times over the last few years, I was very pleasantly surprised to see what wonderful changes the new owners have made to the property since my last stay (August, 2011). My room was spotlessly clean with fresh paint and a fully renovated bathroom (new fixtures, floor, etc). The room featured a new digital programmable air conditioner and a microwave and small fridge. Bedding was clean and bright. The lobby has undergone a total transformation and now features a small breakfast area with several tables and chairs. A basic breakfast is included in the room price. I travel with a small dog and was happy to see that dogs are still welcomed at the Avalanche. I will definitely be returning!

Perfect place for a quick stay off route 7. Clean, warm and friendly. Plus the only inn in town who would take a single Saturday night stay. Thank you!
