“Best little motel for us Dan+ Linda”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

This motel is what we call home away from home. Its quiet,clean,inexpensive, and the Owners are great. The 4-day stay was like staying with family "good family". My husband was thrilled at the track being next door it was the NHRA weekend and it was great, and special care taken by the staff at the Pondside was awesome. We look forward to returning to the Pondside for years to come, p.s. The seafood is always very very good, I had it 3 nights in a row, really think thats why i go. Donna and family Thank You
We will see you soon

My wife and I stayed four nights at the Pondside Motel during the NHRA Nationals at Epping NH. We had a wonderful experience. The accommodations were very good, the owners made you feel so welcome it seemed that you were visiting them, not renting a room from them. The closeness of the track made the day much less stressful. Track to relaxation in five minutes. How can you beat that? The Haven Restaurant was literally a 30 second walk from our room. My wife and I treated ourselves to some fried seafood on several evenings ( Hey, we were on vacation) The people here also treated you like you were sitting in their kitchen, not just another customer. Would we return? You bet! Looking forward to next year!

I can't say enough about the comfort and friendliness we experienced on NHRA race weekend. The room was very clean and the owners were the nicest people you would ever want to meet. They gave us some great directions to avoid major traffic getting to the Dragway. We ate at their resturant(The Haven) each evening. It was so convenient and every dish we tried was excellant, cooked to perfection.
We're already planning to be here next year. This is not one of those huge chain hotels that are business only. This is a family run business and they try to make you feel like family.

Walked in no one there, had to use the phone on wall to dial for a manager they were accross at the so called diner eating.. the outside looks like a complete dump and the inside is total gross. The smell was so nasty made you want to throw up.. The water to take a shower smelled like sewer you actuallly like that when you are done.. In between the matress an boxspring a piece of rotten plywood.. Our feet totally black from walking on the floor that proves that the place never gets cleaned... The towels to dry up were so small that you need two and believe me we arent big people... I can go on and on about this place..... All I have to say is DONT STAY HERE!!!!!!!All we wanted was some were decent to stay after the new england drag way show and believe me should of looked into this better...
