The Weathervane Motel is nothing fancy but I must say that our room was extremely clean. It smells a little musty but I think that's because it's an older place. Our room was a deluxe king with a fireplace, 400 sq. feet. Lots of closet space and large bathroom area outside of actual shower/toilet area which I really liked. They... More

On arrival this out of town motel appears well groomed and presentable, however on first entrance to the room the overpowering smell of whatever cleaner/air freshener used is overwhelming. Opening the front and back doors to create an air flow hardly worked. The room was well furnished with a comfortable bed and large TV, however the bathroom had ingress of... More

I stayed at the Weathervane Motel at the last minute and booked through Hotels.com. The reduced rate was $85. Regular rate was $110 and that would be overpriced. Pros: The motel is in a beautiful spot. The room was spacious. There is an in-room coffee maker. Nice hot water. Very friendly service. Cons: At check in, they didn't give me... More

Unfortunately, this property is in dire need of updating. The location is great, just outside of town, quiet and on a nice large piece of property. The rooms are spacious enough, but the decor is hideous and so outdated. The bathrooms decades old, as is the furniture and window treatments. The room was clean, but nothing could change how ugly...

The hotel is located on a great spread of land. Beautiful scenery and close to Manchester. I remember getting lucky a finding a room in the area because of the horse events. The owners are really nice and friendly. When I was there the only issue I had was the pool was greenish but still able to swim.

Planned a quick, last minute, one night ski trip with my girlfriend and came across the Weathervane Motel online. Appeared to have the most reasonable price with included amenities. I notified the owner that I would be arriving at 11pm on NYE and he had no problem with that. Arrived around 11pm to our room that already had the lights... More

After planning a last minute trip to Stratton Mountain, my boyfriend and I were seeking a place to stay that was convenient, affordable and clean. The Weathervane Motel fulfilled all of those attributions and then some. After traveling for hours on Christmas Eve, we were expecting a late arrival.

My grandmother taught me that if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all. Room was clean when we got there but we did not get room service after checking in. My family has had a trip to this area for several years and our usual spot was under renovation so we tried the Weathervane - Never Again.

We visited Manchester Vermont recently and stayed at the Weathervane. This motel was convenient to shopping and other attractions. Though clean, it was very much in need of repair. The owner was pleasant and helpful. A bright spot was the free continental breakfast. The pastries and coffee were fresh and inviting. We didn't try the pool as it was a... More

We had a very pleasant experience while at the Weathervane. I wasn't sure what to expect and was nicely surprised. Our deluxe room was as stated - great size, pretty clean and comfortable. Only negatives for improvement might be adding a box of tissues for guests in the bathroom and an in-room phone to get in touch with front desk/owners... More
