This was our first stop on a road trip through New England. I have to stay of all of the places we stayed (all motels), this was the best. They had directv and a good size tv in the room which we loved. The bed was a nice pillow top mattress which was very comfortable. The room itself was clean and well appointed with all the standard comforts like a microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker. The only thing I felt it was missing was a little table to sit at if you wanted to eat. The bathroom was really nice, great large shower! There is a restaurant attached to the motel where we had a nice breakfast one morning. If you’re looking for a modestly priced but nice accommodation just minutes outside of Manchester, this is your place! Overall we had no complaints.
I recently had the good fortune to spend the night here on a solo trip through Vermont. The hosts, Adam and Karen, run a comfortable property, priced well, and their pride in their business is quite obvious.
Being talkative and a small business owner myself, we discussed the difficulties in pleasing everyone all the time. They try very hard and it shows. The room I stayed in was very comfortable with a nicely tiled walk in shower. I know Adam continually tries to upgrade the rooms.
Another benefit was the on site restaurant which served me a great filet, cooked perfectly, with a very fair wine pour. The luxury of a large bowl of tasty vanilla ice cream afterwards, for only $2.75, capped off my evening. While I could have spent three or four times more at the Equinox, I drove northward the next morning, after a hearty "Irish" breakfast and chat with Adam, with the feeling my money had been well spent. Value received.
I will certainly visit again when I am in the area.
