My fiancé and I stayed at the motel 5 nights, while in town for a friend´s wedding. Our room was comfortable and private, and a good size. We appreciated that it had a refrigerator and fridge, so that we could have some snacks in our room. We met Karen, one of the owners, and she made us feel at home,...

My wife and I stayed at the motel for two nights. Our room was redone 2 years ago (I asked because it looked like it had been done more recently. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was huge, there was an abundance of pillows for each bed. Outside could use a little additional work, but we were very pleased with...

I wish you would elaborate on what outside needs to be done. The patio was new last year with the fire pit and gardens are up and down the walk way. Many thanks hope to see you soon. Karen

This was our second visit to the Stamford and it was as wonderful, if not more, than our first visit. Karen and Adam,the owners make you feel like family coming for a visit. They go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. The location is perfect and the mountain view is amazing. Our room was as comfy and...

This little motel has nice setting with mountain views, flower gardens and a great fire pit which was lit at night to sit around. There was live music one night at the on site restaurant which has patio sitting. Room was clean and quiet, bathroom small but clean and updated. The only negative was only double bed not queen and...

Located in a beautiful setting with mountain views. The owner, Karen checked us in and gave us some good tips for local things to see/do or eat at. We stayed in room 10-simply lovely with a comfortable bed. When entering the room we were met with the smell of lavender. We loved it, but if strong smells are bothersome, you...

The Stamford Motel is just outside Manchester, which is an upscale and pricey community. This is an affordable option for lodging! Very close to the village (walking distance), very clean and nicely decorated. The gardens out front are attractive. This is a typical roadside motel, so common in the 50s and 60s, but the owners have done a nice job...

On a drive around New England this two-night stay at the Stamford Motel was the best - made by the genuine welcome by the owner, Karen. The room we had was large and comfortable, with a clean bathroom (shower & toilet, no bath.) It also has a lovely verandah and other outside seating, with a fire pit in the evenings,...

What's not to like! The room, the views, the food, the great wine list and most of all the staff. We have stayed here twice and will be back. Nippers café has all that you could ask for and more. I have dined at many of the top restaurants in the Boston area, (and paid a lot more) but the...

When we checked in the woman told us she had given us a very large room that she thought we would like. The room itself was very large, but the stairs going up to it was very narrow and very steep. The windows were half windows, very high up on the wall. I had to stand on tiptoe to see...

Yes, I had given you the nicest and newest renovated room and I wish I hadn't waisted it on someone who isn't appreciative. The room was also an upgrade from what you had booked. You booked a room with two doubles and I gave you a room with a single full size bed and one queen. The room that you...

The motel was oke by itself although beds were short. The adjacent restaurant claimed dinner and breakfast. But..... breakfast was not available earlier than 8 am which was not helpful with a long travel day ahead. This excluding the 20 minutes until the breakfast was served and the many items on the menu not being available.
