Reviewed 4 July 2010

We are used to traveling up to the Nascar race very early on Sunday and coming home right after the race. This year we decided (kind of late) that we wanted to make a weekend of it. But wanted to find somewhere that was not in the busy towns that are very close by the track. So we choose to stay farther away. We arrived at the hotel a bit anxious due to being unsure of what we were going to find as this was our first stay. The views from the car before we even got out were just awesome. The owner was there to check eveyone in and take them to there rooms. We were given such a warm welcome not only by the owner, but all of the other guests. The room, and hotel was very clean. So much more than expected. We did not even have to call for clean towels, they were there when we came back Saturday afternoon, along with the room being freshened up as well. We are definatly planning on going back to this hotel not only for Nascar but other weekend quick trips as well. Only thing to mention - the soda fountain that noted on the town page is no longer there, and the covered bridge was tricky to find. Overall we had a fantastic weekend.

We were in Henniker off-season and pretty much just needed a place to lay our heads, nothing fancy but were very pleased with the Henniker Motel/Hotel.
The owner is very welcoming, friendly and efficient. The room was spotlessly clean. The in-room coffee was good quality (Wolfgang Puck). There's a fridge and microwave.
We didn't use the indoor pool but it would be a bonus if you were there to ski at Pat's Peak ski area which is right across the road.
Didn't stay long enough to experience much more but wouldn't hesitate to go back.

We stayed over the new year holiday and had a blast. The motel was nice and clean, rooms were pretty big, nice hot showers and a heated indoor swimming pool! Owners were very accomodating and quick to help. Motel is just a few hundred yards to the ski lift on Pat's Peak Ski Mountain. Our son walked to the slopes, ski'd a few runs and walked back to the room to warm up or change clothes, then back to the slopes. Slopes open day and night and had great snow. Pat's Peak had a great new year party with food, comedians and fireworks on the mountain. The view from the motel is breathtaking. This is truely a hidden gem.

i had to cancel my reservation due to a family problem. I cancelled by 4:00p.m. the day of arrivale. I was told i would be charged if room wasn't rented for the night. The next day I checked and I had been charged. I called motel and was told room couldn't be rented. I asked how I could be given proof of this. I was told it didn't matter; I made an on line reservation and it stated I would be charged. I looked at their site again and I see no such terms of condition stating this,

As a matter of guest service, we consistently try to accomodate guest cancellations by attempting to sell the room to another guest and not bill the canceling guest. This is a gracious policy that is above the industry practice.

In the event we are unable to re sell the cancelled room, the guest is billed according to the cancelation policy in effect for the date of their reservation. When a guest does not cancel within the prescribed period, of which is clearly stated and they must acknowledge during their reservation process, the guest will be billed for their failure to cancel in a timely manner.

We were up for a weekend of skiing at Pats Peak. We had a great time hanging out in the TV room with a huge Plasma TV! The kids loved the indoor pool after a day of skiing. The place was really clean and the Motel staff was awesome! The pictures on the website dont do the place justice!

My family usually goes skiing at Pat's Peak (great family mountain) once or twice during the winter. We always stay at the Henniker Motel. It is so close to Pat's Peak that we walk. The kids love the indoor swimming pool and I love the view. It is stunning. The rooms are clean and they have quite a few amenities (refrig, hair dryer, cable, iron, coffee) and there is now wireless access at the hotel. It has always been a nice place, but they have made some improvements recently to make it even nicer. There is also a restaurant about a block away that we really enjoy, it is a steak house with a small bar. Great location, beautiful scenery!

We stayed at the Henniker Motel this August because we had a wedding to attend at Pats Peak. The motel is without question very convenient to Pats Peak. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The bathroom was reasonably clean. It had a refrigerator, microwave, and satellite TV.
Unfortunately that's the end of the positive aspects. The room was a smoking room, and absolutely reeked of stale cigarettes. Our luggage, clothing and personal items all smelled of stale cigarettes when we returned home. In fairness, we were warned that it was a smoking room. We were told that the room would be ionized before our arrival in an effort to deodorize the room. It didn't help, largely because I don't think the room has ever been thoroughly cleaned.
The drop panel ceiling sagged in places and its tiles were yellowed and stained. One of the wood panel walls had cracks in it. The carpet was absolutely disgusting and had several stains on it. After walking on the carpet for about 10 minutes, our child's feet had turned black. I'm not talking "normal dirty feet" black, I'm talking "this carpet has never seen a steam cleaner" black.
The air conditioning unit leaked condensation inside the room and left a wet spot on the carpet below.
The comforters were worn and had some holes. The blankets were not double-sheeted.
There were spiders, flies and fruit flies in the room.
The water in the pool was cloudy.
The room was extremely over priced for the value of the accommodation.
I would suggest finding a different place to stay unless you have a compelling reason to stay right next to Pats Peak.
