If you are looking for a nice, clean, family friendly motel in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, look no further. We have stayed at many motel style locations in New Hampshire and this one is the best hands down. When we checked in, we were greeted by the owner, Kevin. Everything you have read about Kevin in these reviews is true...he is the most helpful and friendly innkeeper you will ever meet. After checking us in, he actually walked us to our cottage to show us around. The cottage, which is called "the executive" was comfortable, spacious, and clean. Kevin explained to the kids about the "magic laundry bag". If you happen to run out of any items during your stay (coffee, paper towels, dish liquid, etc.....) simply put the empty in the magic laundry bag and leave it outside. Before you know it, your item has been magically refilled!
The property was clean and tidy the entire week we were there. There is a shuffleboard court, horseshoe pit, and children's play area. The outdoor swimming pool and hot tub (which feature a breathtaking view of the mountains) were always clean and a supply of fresh dry pool towels was always available.
After reading most of the previous reviews about this property, I feel obligated to comment on the chocolate chip cookies and tea available daily in the lobby. Believe it or not, this feature was our second favorite reason for stopping by the office each day. The first reason was Kevin. He is extremely knowledgeable, always pleasant, and obviously takes great pride in his motel. You will never find this kind of dedication and commitment to customer service in any of the chain hotels. This was our first visit to the Gale River Motel and it certainly won't be our last!
Executive cottage was huge. More than enough room for our family of four.
