We stayed in the Annex. For reference, I am a Marriott Titanium member, which means I travel almost every week around the globe. There are no Marriotts near Stratton. Our goal is clean and comfortable at the lowest cost as we ski all day, "hotel picnic" dinner and crash early. The motel is ~20 minutes from Stratton. The room was completely clean, and so spacious! Microwave and larger 'dorm' refrig held everything you could imagine, table and chairs made eating there nice. While the decor is completely outdated, and there were clearly spackle repairs here and there that weren't yet painted, the place was retro perfect. It reminded me of an old cottage. The front desk staff was friendly, the place was dead quiet at night and the beds were comfortable. My only feedback is they need some thicker pillows (we drove so I brought my own, which was an excellent choice as it turned out). This is definitely NOT a Ritz, but I have rented condos @ $450/night and stayed at chains that were less comfortable. We would not hesitate to stay here again!

We stayed at the Chalet Motel Annex. We had a room with two queen beds and a pull-out sofa which worked great for our kids. The room was a bit dated but large and clean. It has a microwave and coffee maker. For the rate, it was a great deal. We were just here overnight for a day trip to Stratton Mountain.

Was looking for a reasonably priced room for hiking during off-season and was happy with our choice. Opted for 2 queen beds and requested room with microwave (as not all rooms have one) and was put in annex in back (where rooms with queen beds are). I think there was only 1 other room occupied at motel during our stay. Since no breakfast served, picked up some food from market in town and ate in room. Weather was getting cold and heater in room heated the place up fast and had to turn temperature down. Unfortunately the hot tub wasn't up and running yet. Overall, we were happy with the room.

This place sort of reminded me of Super 8 except for the fact that it was a motel. We stayed in the annex and were the only guests of all 50+ rooms in that portion of the motel. The location of the annex is far off the road, so it gives you a nice feeling of seclusion from the city. The bed was clean, but the mattress was not very comfortable. Breakfast was not included. There was a vending machine outside that made a lot of noise, even though the cost to keep the vending machine cooled is almost certainly greater than the profits made from selling beverages. Overall, a pleasant stay.

For the price, the Chalet Motel is a great bargain. Most of the other lodging in the Manchester area costs 50% to 100% more, and for a one-night (two-night, if you’re pushing it) stay, the sacrifice in luxury is certainly worth the savings. We went for a Monday during peak foliage season, and it amused us that we had virtually the entire annex to ourselves. There might have been one other vehicle there on the other side, but it was still a far cry from “No vacancy” that I’m sure other more pricey hotels were experiencing. Our double queen room was spacious, with an undersized flat screen TV well positioned to view from a last one of the beds, a large sliding glass door in the back, and good drapes on both ends to block out the light. The bathroom was functional, with one of those retrofitted shower and tub liners you see advertised on TV. If you pull off a couple layers of the onion, you see why the price was so ‘reasonable’. Check-in was pretty drab. There was really no warm welcome or assistance to offer or do more than provide one or two traditional keys. Even the “new” annex felt dated, as if it had been built in the 1970s and not renovated since. The beds were cheap, springy, and well past their useful days. The lamp shades were coming apart, and the shower rod was hanging off the wall and unable to properly hold up the shower curtain from end to end. I saw no signs of mold or mildew, but the tiling was definitely from a few decades ago, and there was noticeably unfinished patchwork in the walls which some kid probably did using spackling paste for a few extra bucks. Sleep quality would have been much better even on the sketchy beds if it hadn’t been for the 4 AM noise emanating from the Pepsi machine adjacent to our unit. Why the hotel needs to even keep one of these relics on the property is a mystery, but when the relic operates with 12-second on and off cycles for 15 minutes in the middle of the night, presumably for general maintenance, it becomes a genuine nuisance and huge negative in the stringent Cherry Wonderdog rating system. Similarly, the heating system in our room, which the owner admitted at check-in hadn’t been turned on all season, seemed to suffer from a skewed thermostat and a mind of its own. I had to turn it off when it kicked on in the middle of the night with a relentless amount of heat even though I had only set it for 64 degrees. In sum, if I were to come back to Manchester, I might consider the Chalet Hotel again, but it would be so much better if they made a few simple upgrades to fix these issues beforehand.
