Pleasant River Motel
Ranked #12 of 15 Bethel B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Clean and very inexpensive. An old-fashioned motor inn along a rural two-lane highway with flowers in front and trees around. Near the White Mountains and convenient for a road trip. WIFI. Mattress was somewhat saggy, the room was small and did not have a vent fan in the bathroom, but otherwise fine, and for the low price, I was pleased with this motel.

Stayed: June 2013, travelled with family

The room is pretty basic and everything was very clean. It has a CRT TV with cable, bed, minifridge, microwave, baseboard heating, window shaker AC, full bathroom. The price is really good though, it cost around $55/night in spring. It's in a decent location with shorts drives to restaurants, skiing, the White Mountains and other attractions. The owners were very friendly and helpful even gave us a coupon to a local restaurant.

Paid $60 for a Friday night stay in late March so we could get an early start for Saturday skiing and avoid a 3 hour drive up in the morning.
This place is a typical New England roadside "motor lodge" that's gotta be 40 years old. The place is simple. Bed, bath, tube TV, heat. The room we had was very neat and clean. This is what you should expect in a place like this: an "old" place that is very well kept.
The proprietor was very friendly on the phone and in person.
Would stay here again in the same situation.

We booked this Motel because we were Staying at the Sunday River resort for the week but wanted to be up in the area for our check-in date as we live over three hours away. The price was definitely reasonable (I believe it was around $79 with tax). The owners were very nice and helpful. The room was pretty much what we expected however it was very clean, had a TV, heat, mini fridge, and a shower. What more could you want for the price. The beds were a little hard and the train is somewhere close by but that's the only downside worth mentioning. There are plenty of restaurants close by and when you check in ask them for some restaurant coupons. We got $5 off one restaurant and a free appetizer at another. The comment about the A/C plug being pad-locked is true though, lol. It was 15 degrees out so we weren't concerned with trying to keep cool. If you want to hit the slopes for the weekend and aren't too picky this place will work well for you.

This place is very inexpensive so don't expect fancy rooms, health club, or a hot tub. But if you are looking for a functional place that is convenient to Bethel attractions and right off Rte 2, then this is a good choice. They also have some pet-friendly rooms which is a plus.

Never have been to a place where the air conditioner plugs are padlocked tp prevent guests from using. Beds were brutal.

Room Tip: Stay closer to the office because the end units are far from the hot water tank and it takes 5 minut...

We stayed 2 weekends ago and are on our way back tomorrow for a quick mid-week ski. Beds were comfortable everything was clean and we just need a place to sleep while up north skiing.
Had a nice chat with Bob, the owner, he and his wife do all the cleaning and maintenance. It's not much for amenities, but the wi-fi worked well and they had an ice machine and soda machine, not sure what else since it was snowing and we wanted to get to the mountain.
