“Wonderful suprise and great hospitality!!!”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

We booked two rooms, for a one night stay, on our way to Stratton. Everything from the call to make the reservation to the check out could not have been more pleasant. Our room was clean, well decorated and everything worked perfect. We had dinner on site, 4 adults and 6 children, without a reservation and we were treated like we were old friends. The food was perfect and the attention to detail was wonderful. Try the "hot" wings - they are the only true HOT wings I have ever had. You can't go wrong with this beautiful little gem.

Karen was wonderful! We had to change our night because Vermont was preparing for a snowstorm. I called in a panic because I thought we would have to pay for the night because I had to cancel the reservation. She was so accommodating and just switched our reservation for 2 days later and no penalty! That is the difference between chain hotels and family owned and operated. If we ever go through Vermont again, we will definetly be booking with the Stamford!

The Stamford Motel fit our needs perfectly. Inexpensive but clean and well-appointed. No mirror in the room itself, so you may want to bring your own if you need a mirror while the bathroom is occupied. The innkeepers were very pleasant and had made a point of warming up the room for our arrival. Restaurant didn't seem to be open (we were there midweek), which seemed a little odd because the sign for Nippers Cafe is much more apparent from the road than any sign announcing a motel. Location feels rural yet you are a minute from downtown Manchester. Coffee in the room was tasty, and it was a quiet location. I would definitely stay here again.

My entire family love the motel. It was easy to locate the Motel. The room was huge, super clean and very cozy. The beds were big. The room was provided with clean towels. The room was recently remodeled. The room smell super clean. We really love it. It was affordable consider how close it was to the Stratton Mountain. The motel is located in a main road which it made very to drive. The owner were friendly and provide us with tips regarding sk. i Thanks for the hospitality.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our booking for our ski holiday due to a broken elbow. The hotel manager was very understanding and waived our booking cancellation fee. We will try again next year as they seemed very friendly and were able to accommodate our various children and dog!

Luckily you gave us enough time to re-rent the room. It should be noted that we have a strict cancellation policy but when we can help we do. Thanks, Karen Geriak

We stayed here based on tripadvisor reviews and had a very enjoyable experience. The room was warm upon arrival. They are small rooms but for the price we were happy considering Manchester is so expensive. We stayed in room 10 a queen size room. We were out most of the day and night They seem to have very extensive flower gardens we will try to come back in the summer since my wife loves to garden. We will come back for another stay in the future. We dined at Nipper's and had a very enjoyable breakfast next time we will try it for dinner.

Thanks so much for staying at the Stamford Motel. We try to be very affordable and we attempt to turn up the heat upon arrival since it will take sometime to warm the rooms however once they are warm they are very warm. Thanks so very much for taking the time to write a review. Thanks, Karen

Once again luckily enough time was given and luckily for you I had just received a call and was able to call them back and rent the room thus not charging you a dime. We try to accommodate when possible however we do have a 14 cancellation policy - if we are ablet to rent the room you are not charged however if we aren't you will be charged. You got LUCKY!!!
