This hotel lacks maintenance big time. Mold on the bathroom baseboards and the windows as well as the caulking in the shower. No fans in the bathrooms at all. Our room was heated by plug in electric heaters. The main electric drop coming in to the building was down to almost bare wire. If there had been any other place...

The hotel was affordable, and the location was great. Minutes away from the Ice Castle, the reason why we came yo visit the area. It is an old motel, but clean, the heat worked, they had free wifi. The young lady that checked us in was friendly. The television had limited amount of station. It was fine for an overnight...

We stayed at this little Motel two years in a row. It's basic but it's comfortable and they let us bring our dog. Beautiful Rocky Brooke/river out back. Close to many attractions. We love it and will go again!

Looks quite dated from the outside; accommodation is a number of cabins. It was nice to have a fridge and a microwave in the room, which was a bit small, though there was a table where I could use my laptop. In the summer you could sit out on the porch. The guy at reception was really friendly. You could...

I was a bit hesitant about choosing this hotel because of some of the reviews, but it seamed like my best option in the area for the night, so I decided to check it out. The man at the front desk was very friendly when I arrived and let me take a look at the cabins and the motel before...

This was one of the least expensive options when we booked our last minute trip to NH over Columbus Day weekend. I understood what kind of place we were going to from the reviews so there were no surprises. The room was heated by a space heater, which kept us toasty warm. Very much an old school mom and pop...

We stayed in a cabin and it was like glamping. Nothing more but nothing less either. Very basic but it was clean and the heat worked. The rate was very expensive for what you get, but considering the crazy leafing weekend that we were there, and that everywhere else was sold out it is to be expected.

In planning a hiking trip to Franconia Notch with my son, I had found this motel listed at a good price. The reviews all indicated this was a no-frills, but quaint, clean, and friendly place to stay. After staying for Columbus Day Weekend, I couldn't agree more. All rooms were full, and we were staying in one that was smaller...

We had a challenge finding somewhere to stay in the Lincoln area on a very busy fall weekend. Decided this would be ok based on reviews here. The gps could not find the address given online. Use Daniel Webster highway instead! The room was very dated and worn, but it was clean and smelled good. The location is out of...
