Manchester View Thoughts...
"Very clean motel!!! Beautiful location and very well maintained. Would highly recommend if coming to visit the Manchester area!! Lots of outdoor activities to do very close by and plenty of shops and restaurants near. Beautiful town!"
Everything is perfect and clean. Great location, quiet place close to everything. Staff super! Highly recommended, pet friendly. Rooms are clean and spacious, we were 4 couples of friends and we had a shared porch where we had dinner. Great experience for real.
Great Service, Great Location
"Great motel and very friendly staff. I had a great room with a great view. Beds were a little stiff, but manageable. The outdoors pool was a great thing to have during the hot summer days. Overall great experience and the staff were amazing and helped with anything I needed. Definitely would recommend."
Great Romantic Getaway
The Manchester View was the perfect escape form being locked down in our small apartment for 4 months. Yes an update is in order but this motel is well maintained, beautifully landscaped and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is convenient to town and all the shopping & dining options. Covid-19 precautions are in place and practiced by the staff as well.
The Manchester View sits high up on a hill with magnificent sweeping views of the historic Route 7A valley and the Green and Taconic mountain ranges, just a mile and half north of the center of town and two miles south of Dorset Village in southwestern Vermont. 'The View' is close to so many local attractions, dining options, galleries and museums, sports venues, and natural sights that you'll be busy non-stop, or choose to relax in our heated outdoor pool (open in the warmer months) or in the comfort of your room or suite. Some of Vermont's best ski resorts (and summer adventure parks) — including Bromley, Stratton and Magic Mountains — are just a short drive from the hotel. A visit during any season will be memorable!
