“Great at what they do!”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

My fiance and I stayed at the Stamford for a weekend back in May. It is a small, family-run motel and the staff is friendly and welcoming. The rooms are basic, but comfortable - we weren't looking for extravagant, lavish accommodations, and that's not what the Stamford tries to do. Their mission statement is to provide affordable, comfortable rooms with friendly service - and they excel at it!

It was great to be able to travel with pets, and we also found a couple other dogs there (and plenty of friendly dog owners). It's a truly unique place and you absolutely cannot beat the price or value.

Our room had a great view, and the covered patio outside provided a great place to enjoy the weather (and maybe a beverage or two). Only a two minute drive to town, it's in a great location as well. I was pleased to find all the positive reviews before we went, and now I can personally echo their sentiments!

We ate breakfast at Nipper's Cafe (their small restaurant on the property) and found the food to be very good with friendly service. Had two great breakfasts here! Didn't try dinner at Nipper's but we have no reason to doubt it would be anything less than excellent!

We stayed there last April. They couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. They were unpretentious and genuinely helpful. We ate at the cafe for breakfast with a large group. They were on the ball and glad to be there. The huge difference is that the owners are on site.

We were staying in Manchester for a wedding and had a very good experience at the Stamford Motel. The check in and check out processes were both quick and easy, and the family was very nice! Great price for the area, as well!

Thanks!

Our room was a bit mismatched (some ugly old/some nice new) but decent for a night's stay. Staff was friendly too. Nothing exceptional, but nothing too bad either. The shower was tiny...probably 2.5 ft by 2.5 ft.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We will take average any day of the week. We are sure you spent $80 on a room for two in the month of May. All we are trying to do is offer nice, neat, clean accommodations at an affordable price and it looks as though we've completed our task. We are slowly upgrading the motel - we just added the restaurant last summer and that took a big chunck of change. We realize that if you were looking for anything more than average you would have spent the night at the Equinox and paid anywhere from $200 - $600 a night. They would offer you above average accommodations. We always try to excel in the area of service and apparently we have succeed there as well. Thanks again.

My husband and I stayed at the Stamford last July, and when it came time to pick a weekend getaway this spring, we knew exactly where to go. Just like our last stay, everything about the place was great - clean cozy rooms and friendly smiles. This place is seriously an excellent find!!

We chose the Stamford Motel based on Tripadvisor reviews from folks travelling with dogs. We were not disappointed. The room and locale were very convenient. Everything was clean and neat. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our breakfast at Nippers was very good as well.

My sons and I were very happy with the Stamford Motel. The room was clean, comfortable and cute. The rates were affordable and the management was very pleasant. I would stay there again if we were to find ourselves back in Manchester (which is a lovely littte town with the best bookstore EVER!!)
