We're sorry to hear about your bad experience with another motel but happy you found us here at the Casablanca Motel. With three acres of property, there is plenty of room to get out and play! In the summertime, we offer croquet, volleyball, badminton, bocce and more. Enjoy card or board games in our lighted gazebo in the evening or take a walk through the woods out back. We specialize in quiet, country charm and good clean fun.
Small families and couples of all ages find the quaint, retro cabins a blast from the past. There is room to get outside of your cabin and enjoy the great outdoors either by relaxing on your own porch or getting out into the woods of the Green Mountain National Forest. When you are here, let us know what you like to do and we'll be happy to give some suggestions in return. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Think of us again when your travels bring you to Manchester, Vermont!

Individual cabins, very comfortable. Close to outlet shopping in Manchester Center, and many other desirable day trips. They are wonderful with dogs. Cosy comfortable and fun. We have been coming here four times a year for several years. Wouldn't miss it! Many good and sophisticated restaurants within fifteen minutes' drive, more than you would ever imagine for such a small area. They are adding flat screen TVs very soon (they were there already waiting to be installed). I can only imagine two improvements, one fairly easy, the other a larger one: they formerly had cable TV with more channels, and have gone to DISH with not too many (although we don't do much TV watching here). It would be fantastic to add gas fireplaces in each cabin where the gas heaters are, they could replace them and would be fantastic in fall, winter & early spring. Very close to Bromley & Snowdon slopes. It feels like our vacation home in Vermont. The proprietors are lovely people, there's nothing they won't do for visitors.

Room Tip: they're all great

Thank you for your comments! We're so glad you like it here and continue to return. We feel the cabins are an extension of our home and treat our guests as if they were guests in our own home. By the way, the flat-screened TV's are here and installed! We think they look GREAT and have really modernized the cabins! When our local cable provider decided to double our cost for service, we were pressed into making a change. We think you'll notice that you will receive more channel choices on the new televisions.
We too think a gas fireplace would be a wonderful (if expensive) alternative to the current heaters. We will keep that in mind as we continue to update these retro cabins!
Come see us again, Vermont is a great place to shop, dine, enjoy nature and simply relax.

This was our second visit to the Casablanca Motel and we look forward to coming back again. We stayed in the double cabin and it was perfect for us having two children. We could put them to bed at night and have our own space to hang out. The owners are wonderful and the cabins and grounds are very clean. The showers are a bit on the small side and the front room of the double cabin needs darker shades because it is way too light in there in the morning, but other than that we love it there and will be back again and again. They provide an affordable alternative to staying in a hotel and I would much rather choose the Casablanca over a hotel any day.

So glad you stayed with us again and thank you for your review. We're happy to have been able to provide you with the Green Mountain Suite for your stay with us. This cabin is popular with families and couples traveling together because of the two rooms and separate bathrooms. We appreciate your comment on the brightness of the front room. This room gets the first light of the day as the sun rises over the Green Mountains just across the road from our property. The sun lights the garden just outside this window and is beautiful but, because of the early morning sunshine, might be best for early risers! We will see what might be done to minimize this issue.
By choosing the Casablanca Motel over a chain hotel, you are choosing to support local and your money stays here in Vermont. Thank you for supporting small business, and complimenting us as owners. We look forward to having you stay with us again!

If you're looking for reasonably priced accommodations in Manchester, Casablanca is fine. It's close to downtown, our room was clean, the beds were comfortable enough, the owner was very friendly and the grounds were well cared for. Our rooms were dated and the bathrooms were small (we had a double unit), but overall our stay was acceptable for the price.

Thank you for writing a review of your stay with us. We're glad you found us reasonably priced and you were able to take advantage of our Green Mountain Suite which offers two rooms. This cabin is great for families with one queen and two twin beds separated by an adjoining door

We have only the one double-room cabin so it is in great demand much of the time. When we think about combining the two small bathrooms into one larger one, we are reminded that the two bathrooms are appreciated by folks who like having a little more privacy. Sometimes the Green Mountain Suite is used for four adults and the two bathrooms are greatly appreciated.

The single-room cabins are the same size as some mid-range hotels/motels although they do look small from the outside. We never tire of the reaction we get when a guest opens the door to their cabin and are surprised by the size and comfortable atmosphere of their own private cabin.

We have stayed here 5 times over the last couple of years, and couldnot find a better location that is truly pet friendly. The owners are great, and the cottages are neat and clean. Best of all is the room to play with your dog.


When we come to Manchester, the Casablanca is the only place for us.

We are always happy to welcome returning guests and thank you for taking the time to write a review. Returning guests often have a favorite cabin that they call their home-away-from-home and we're glad we can be that for you.

We have three acres of former farmland to be enjoyed by our guests. We are always updating our grounds and gardens and offer lawn games for the warm, get-outside months of the year.

Check us out, we're close to everything from outlet shopping to ski/snowboard areas. Long country drives or hikes await you when you come to the Casablanca Motel.
