We stayed at The Stamford Motel & Restaurant for one night, over this past weekend. We made a last minute decision to take a much needed vacation to one of our favorite places...Vermont. I honestly did not know if we would find an available room, in our budget, with good reviews on such short notice, (I booked on Thursday, we...

Yes you are correct that I wasn't super bubbly unfortunately I was dealing with a tragedy in the family and needed to leave after my breakfast shift and my thoughts were some place else. Glad the upgrade for the room worked out and you found the key upon arrival. Safe travels and kindest regards, Karen

As usual, it takes me a few months to write my review.... sorry. My yearly stop in Manchester would not be complete without my stay at the Stamford! I've been staying here yearly since moving to Florida 10 years ago. Again, I had a wonderful stay at the motel. The best part is being able to walk just a few...

This was our second visit to the Stamford Motel in Manchester, VT. I booked a last minute weekend away for my husband's birthday and after a lovely weekend last January, we picked this inn again. The rooms are comfortable and spacious for a small motel, the recent bathroom renovations are clean and modern, and the warm, welcoming owners made our...

I thought I had submitted a review previously but don't see it so I felt I really needed to because this is the kind of place that truly brings the idea of New England hospitality to life. Is it a 5 star resort , no. Does it have a NYCity style gourmet restaurant, no. Is it warm, friendly, clean, and...

We spent two nights at The Stamford over the Thanksgiving holiday. I chose this motel as a result of the positive reviews as well as the close proximity to where we were celebrating the holiday. Our room was clean and as mentioned, we appreciated the convenience of the motel being very close to shopping and our families home. The cost...

For the price in Manchester VT it's a no-brainer. The room was clean and the king bed was comfy -- the bathroom was small but clean and modern.

Spent a couple of nights here at the beginning of October. The room was comfortable and clean. We had breakfast and dinner at Nippers. All the meals were good. My wife particularly enjoyed the roasted red peppers. Karen was very welcoming and helpful throughout.
