“Summer Fun”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

Wonderful fun at the Casablanca- comfortable, clean and cozy accommodations conveniently located close to everything! Outdoor fun and games on the property such as horseshoes, bocce, and late night cards in the Gazebo. The dog even had a great time joining in on the fun- perfect hiking trails adjacent to the property lead to the Manchester dog park- and just a short drive to dog friendly Orvis to check out the Trout swimming in the pond. Looking forward to a return trip to the Casablanca Motel~

We're so glad you and your dog enjoyed it here so much. We are one of the few truely pet-friendly places to stay that we know of and we're glad you took advantage of the trail leading from our property to southern Vermont's only off-leash dog park. Come back any time, the lawn games and card games in the gazebo are waiting! : )

This is the second time we've stayed here with our dog and again had a wonderful experience! Not only is the Casablanca one of the most affordable dog-friendly lodging options in Manchester, but the individual cabins are beyond cute, very clean and perfect for a weekend getaway. The rooms are not the most "luxurious" in Manchester, but have everything you need - a fridge, flatscreen TVs (with lots of channels!), wi-fi, comfortable bed and each room has private outdoor seating as well. Our cabin even had a mini-patio on the side, which provided the perfect space for our dog to romp around the lawn. The outdoor spaces around each cabin are also very very nice - it is clear that Linda and her friendly & helpful staff take great care to maintain the property (all the flowers were in full bloom during our stay!) We definitely plan to come back and thanks to Linda for another great Vermont getaway!

The Casablanca Motel is the best value for the price and then some. It was clean and well kept. The grounds were impecable. Lovely country atmosphere. The individual cabins give you plenty of privacy. The staff were very courtious, friendly and helpful. If you as them for good place to eat, they tell you. Away from the main area but close enough to walk, if you are into walking or even to bike to.

You can get more elsewhere but you will pay a lot more, too.

Best for the price and then some.

The Casablanca Motel is everything I hoped for and more. The cabins are lovely, private, have all the conveniences and are just generally charming. The place is set about a mile outside of town, easy to get to everything but quiet and private. The proprietors are warm and friendly. I would definitely go back there....after all, if you have found the best, why look further?

Our stay at Casablanca was great. The individual cabin was cozy and comfortable, with chairs outside for relaxing. The grounds were well maintained. They were very accommodating of our dog, and included a little bag with a local organic treat for him! The motel is very close to downtown Manchester shopping and restaurants. We will definitely return here on our next stay in the Manchester area.

We're sorry to hear about your bad experience with another motel but happy you found us here at the Casablanca Motel. With three acres of property, there is plenty of room to get out and play! In the summertime, we offer croquet, volleyball, badminton, bocce and more. Enjoy card or board games in our lighted gazebo in the evening or take a walk through the woods out back. We specialize in quiet, country charm and good clean fun.
Small families and couples of all ages find the quaint, retro cabins a blast from the past. There is room to get outside of your cabin and enjoy the great outdoors either by relaxing on your own porch or getting out into the woods of the Green Mountain National Forest. When you are here, let us know what you like to do and we'll be happy to give some suggestions in return. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Think of us again when your travels bring you to Manchester, Vermont!

Individual cabins, very comfortable. Close to outlet shopping in Manchester Center, and many other desirable day trips. They are wonderful with dogs. Cosy comfortable and fun. We have been coming here four times a year for several years. Wouldn't miss it! Many good and sophisticated restaurants within fifteen minutes' drive, more than you would ever imagine for such a small area. They are adding flat screen TVs very soon (they were there already waiting to be installed). I can only imagine two improvements, one fairly easy, the other a larger one: they formerly had cable TV with more channels, and have gone to DISH with not too many (although we don't do much TV watching here). It would be fantastic to add gas fireplaces in each cabin where the gas heaters are, they could replace them and would be fantastic in fall, winter & early spring. Very close to Bromley & Snowdon slopes. It feels like our vacation home in Vermont. The proprietors are lovely people, there's nothing they won't do for visitors.

Room Tip: they're all great

Thank you for your comments! We're so glad you like it here and continue to return. We feel the cabins are an extension of our home and treat our guests as if they were guests in our own home. By the way, the flat-screened TV's are here and installed! We think they look GREAT and have really modernized the cabins! When our local cable provider decided to double our cost for service, we were pressed into making a change. We think you'll notice that you will receive more channel choices on the new televisions.
We too think a gas fireplace would be a wonderful (if expensive) alternative to the current heaters. We will keep that in mind as we continue to update these retro cabins!
Come see us again, Vermont is a great place to shop, dine, enjoy nature and simply relax.
