The Chalet Motel
Ranked #12 of 16 Hotels in Manchester
Reviewed 28 September 2013

I'm writing this from my motel room on our last night here, already feeling sad that we're leaving! The room (#137) is HUGE! It overlooks an enormous yard area with an adorable wooden playground nestled in the middle. There are little (tasteful!) bbqs and wooden chaise lounge chairs with nice cushions and tables in the yard area. The location of the motel is perfect -- super close to the highway and a 1 minute ride into the center of Manchester...and yet, it feels like a secluded hideaway with a beautiful mountain backdrop. The owners welcome pets (with a very nominal charge). The room was spotless and the bed was the most comfortable bed I've slept in in a very long time. The shower was okay -- good for this area (but I'm really spoiled b/c we have the best shower ever at home). The owners seem super nice and incredibly accommodating. We will definitely book here again. We've been to about 6 different motels in the area and found this one to be the best value with the biggest, cleanest rooms (although we loved the Aerie Inn as well, which has since closed). Highly recommend The Chalet!

Room Tip: We were in the Annex section - which is across the street -- and would definitely book there again...

One night in a pricey town. Plenty of high-end restaurants and pricey places to stay.
Not the Chalet Motel. We were given a room in the annex (a set of rooms across the street
from the main part of the Motel. "Room" is inadequate. It was a suite. The price was
$79.20 for the 2. The bedroom had a window looking out onto a back lawn that had a
grill, presumably for the use of guests, although we did not have time.

When I arrived the owners were celebrating a birthday and promptly offered me a piece of
cake. Admittedly, our timing (after Labor Day, before Foliage season) meant that we would
get reduced rates in many places, but this value was unexpected. Nothing fancy here, but
on my Top Ten for best value. I booked with owners. They asked if wifi was needed. It
worked fine.

Stayed here in May with my elderly mother. Very large rooms, excellent cross ventilation, table, microwave, "kitchen" sink, OK bathroom. A refrigerator was supplied upon our request. Walls are a bit thin and had a problem with late night loud TV next door, but they turned it off upon first request. Price was right. Not fancy, but I would happily stay here again. Where is that elusive ice maker???

Room Tip: We were in the "annex." Don't know if that makes a difference.

The Chalet is one of those funky family owned roadside motels. It's not fancy, and the carpet and furnishings are a little worn and dated, but it's clean. The bathroom was fairly up to date, and the wireless worked well (always a plus in the mountains). There was a refrigerator in the room. The little inground pool was sparkling, and it was quiet at night, despite being right off Route 30 and 7A. It's very convenient to town and the horse show grounds, and at $130 a night the price was right. I would stay there again.

Items were stolen from the room while I was out during the day. The only people with access to the room were the maids and managers. I was gone for a seven hour period and did not leave any of the items in the open, all were put away in closed bags. When I approached management, they did nothing to help me whatsoever, and were in fact rude. It has since become a police matter. In addition, I asked the management about any form of a hotel liability policy, and they said they had none. Furthermore, they refused to refund my hotel room for the next night (the night after the item had been stolen).

Was pleasantly surprised. We needed a room for one night at the last second. The room was very large with two queens and a pullout couch. Separate area had coffee maker and fridge. We got the AAA rate which made it reasonable. Very close drive into Manchester. Only complaint was they forgot to refill the coffee and shampoo after the previous guests had left.

We stayed at The Chalet Motel during the President's holiday weekend to ski. Not only did they allow a 2 night stay, they even offered a 15% discount. It's about 25 min away from Stratton; closer to Bromley; and minutes from downtown Manchester. Sure, the furnishings can use some updating, but then, the prices will increase! We will surely be going back to The Chalet Motel.
