This is our second time staying at the Stamford motel. We have visited the Manchester area many times now, staying at several different inns and this place is our favorite. It's definitely the most cost effective place to stay in the area and it keeps getting better. The new small flat screens in the rooms are great, but TV is the last thing you should be doing while in Manchester anyway. And Karen, one of the owners, is extremely friendly and helpful in finding all the local activities.
Some other reviewers complained about the construction and the guinea hens. Last time we stayed there was during construction and the guinea hens were out in full force. However, neither bothered us at the time and during our recent visit, the guinea hens were gone (inside somewhere?) and the restaurant was completed (see my review for Nipper's Cafe). We took advantage of a fantastic promotion that included a delicious breakfast at this quaint restaurant.
Also, it's only about a 3-minute drive to Manchester Center which is perfect to avoid the traffic and crowds there. I urge all the people bothered by the construction to check out the restaurant, you'll see it was worth it.
