“Weekend in Vermont”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

We spent the weekend in Manchester. We found the Stamford to live up to it's reputation. It was clean, friendly and affordable. We had breakfast a Nippers and it was very good.

We were driving from CT to VT, and happened upon this delightful place. The scenery is beautiful, and the owners are so friendly and accommodating. We had no real plans, but to enjoy time away from the office, and every suggestion was perfect from the Vermont Country Store (only 30 minutes away) to the fly tie shop next door for my husband's fly fishing collection (Gloria Jordan was lovely! www.gloriajordanflyfishing.com). We only had breakfast at Nipper's Cafe, but it was delicious. I highly recommend the Stamford and if I am ever North again, this is where I will stay.

Room Tip: Room 5 is a warm room - perfect for a southerner!

You guys were great. I'm still amazed that you would go wherever your GPS would take you. Hopefully you cured your shopping bug. Gloria stopped back in and was ecstatic that you had returned to her shop to purchase the book on her late husband. You guys were very enjoyable thanks a bunch for writing the review.

We stayed here on a recent mid-week Ski Trip. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable. We didn't eat at the restaurant but have heard it's very good as well. The decor is what you would expect in a motel but the beds were very comfortable and plenty of room for all of our Ski Gear. I would stay here again in the future. The folks whom run the place are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and other areas of Vermont as well.

"AFFORDABLE-COMFORTABLE-CLEAN" - we've accomplished our mission. We know that we aren't a four star hotel and we never will be but if we can provide a nice neat, clean, comfortable place for everyone to rest their heads than we are doing our job:] Many thanks for writing the review and we look forward to your return.

I just spent the weekend in Vermont with my family and I'am very happy I chose the Stamford Motel for my lodging. We arrived on Friday & the check-in process was quick & easy, Karen was just as friendly in person as she had been on the phone. Our room was clean & neat, we stayed in room#14 - had two queen beds which were very comfortable. We spent our first night just down the street at Riley Rink & spent the day Saturday at Stratton Mountain which was just a short 20 minute ride from the Stamford. The best part of our stay was the food at Nippers Cafe - the menu was diverse and the service was outstanding. Thanks for a great weekend Karen - We'll be back.

Jim

Room Tip: We stayed in room #14 - Two queen beds.

My 9 year old son and I spent a night at The Stamford bookended by two sunny ski days at Bromley. The room was clean, comfortable, and economical. Dinner st Nippers was great. Chicken tenders for him, Filet Mignon for me. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I were so happy we found the Stamford. We have been coming up to Stratton for years skiing but this was our first time at the Stamford. It definitely will not be our last either. We stayed in Room #1 which has a comfortable king size bed and was immaculate. We had breakfast at Nipper's which was also excellent I would highly recommend both the restaurant and the hotel.
