Rude, obnoxious owners. Asked to refund our money before we even stayed. Don't deserve anyone's business! Owner asked us to come out for a head count. Is this the military or a motel.If you have three children, you are not allowed to stay in a double room with your six month old in a pack and play. And they advertise as being "family oriented."

As always, we appreciate the time people take to post a review. This however is not a review but a comment from someone who never stood here. Read the post...Asked to leave before we stood there. Why would we ask someone to leave before they stood here and give them their money back. Were in the business of renting rooms not leaving them empty. You see what this person is not telling you is they had read a previous review that we adhear to the state fire code on the amount of people we can rent a room too. So they had 1 person register their room and 2 car loads of people showed up once they got their key. We didn't make them leave. If the information was correct at the time this person registered they could have stayed here. They still could have stayed here if the extra people stood somewhere else, but they didn't want too.
You see they were going to have the adults sleep in the two beds and the kids on the floor, we call that camping. We gave them the fire chief of our town's number, but they didn't care. They just didn't want to pay. We get many families that have 3 children that stay in our motel. If they are little kids that can fit in a bed ,have a pack n play or use a cot, then we comply with the law. We had guests that stood in our motel this past weekend that read this comment without our response and were very appreciative of the fact that we follow our state law and wouldn't put a large amount of people in an adjacent room to theirs. Read all of our reviews from people that actually stayed here. Every morning when people check out they tell us on how much they enjoyed their stay and that we will see them next year. This comment only verifies that we would rather have an empty room then break our state firecode and subject an adjacent room.

I booked this motel at the last minute (after reading reviews on Trip Advisor) and was lucky to get in (because of a last minute cancellation). What a nice surprise. The owner was very friendly from the moment I made the reservation to when we were leaving. The rooms were very clean - even the bathroom! The only issue we had were the black flies which we were told are common in August. A fly swatter is provided in each room. (Trust me it is a minimal problem that was quickly taken care of) There were lots of movies for the kids to rent, a clean pool, a small swingset and even mini golf. Best part though it was right across from Santa's Village. Would definitely stay here again.

It is very nice of you to let us know how you liked your stay. You were not lucky to stay here, we were. We get a few thousand families every year that stay at our motel and you took the time to post a review. That makes us the lucky ones. :0) We look forward to seeing you again, and thank you for taking the time, it was very much appreciated !!!

First off, I must say, that the value of this property is out of this world. I was shocked at the quality of the room for under $100. We stayed in July, it was my parents in one room and my wife and I and our 2 kids in the adjoining room.

First impression: Very clean, basic but spacious rooms. I do mean clean. It's very apparent that there is some serious pride in ownership here.

Location: It is directly across the street from Santas Village, 100% walkable, it is the only property that is, everywhere else you will need a car.

Beds: Comfortable, mattress cover a little plasticky. Linens and authentic New England quilts were excellent.

In room amenities: Air conditioner worked good, our bathroom and vanity area were separate. The hot water was dicey from time to time, however it should be noted that we never fully ran out of hot water, but it did get a bit lukewarm. The property was full during our stay, so I'm sure this impacted the availability of hot water. Great new TV's with endless channels with DVD/VCR and what seemed to be about 300-400 movies available for sign out (a real plus for the kids). In room had a small fridge, table, 3 chairs, luggage stand and desk combo. A binder is provided with area eateries and information. Wi-fi was strong and reliable. Upgraded windows and excellent door seals completely blocked out the highway noise.

Breakfast. Good coffee,juices, bagels, pastries, muffins, bread and various spreads. More than adequate to keep your family going through the morning at Santas Village.

Pool: Extremely clean, area is fenced, pool towels are available from the front desk. Pool was on the colder side.

Mini-golf: What a blast and a fun surprise. Our kids are early risers... breakfast was done, and kids were dressed and ready to go by 8:00am. What to do? Go ask for some clubs and off you go. Now I get that 8:00 am mini-golf is not for everyone, but we did it and what a great way to start off the day while distracting kids from the elapsing minutes till the part opened. We all found it funny to be playing golf while it was 30 above at 8:00am while Christmas music played!

Play structure: A little worn, typical swing/slide/playhouse structure. Covered picnic table area adjacent.

Owners: ALWAYS there for recommendations, asking how your day is going and if you're comfortable.

Overall: What a great stay. Families will appreciate this property and all that it offers, especially the great price. Multi-generation travelers will enjoy the proximity to the park (Grampa was able to walk back to the room for a mid-day nap). Your kids will love the many amenities. Trust me when I tell you that you need to stay at this property. You will not be disappointed. Also, you're gonna feel good knowing that you're supporting a local New Hampshire family rather than putting your money in the pockets of a hotel chain. We will definitely be back!

Thank you for choosing the Evergreen Motel as your place to stay when visiting Santa's Village. Your first impression was absolutely correct. We take tremendous pride at doing our best every day to make everyone's stay as pleasureable as possible. We clean our rooms as if our parents were going to be staying in them. The pool is our favorite job. Took the course at the board of health to be certified. You can see a penny on the bottom of the deep end. We double protect our beds. We get a lot of little kids that sleep in them. We put the mini golf directly across from the main entrance to the park so the children could hear the music while they played. So again, thank you for such a lenthy review and we do look forward to seeing your family again.

My 5 year old son and I stayed here during a recent trip to Santa's Village and Six Gun City. Our room (19) was spotless and very comfortable. The owners are friendly, helpful and were always available. The motel has a mini golf course that my son loved to the point of asking if we could leave a theme park to go play golf! They offer a continental breakfast and there is a mini fridge in the room which was very convenient since we made our own lunches to bring to the parks. This is definitely a motel I would visit again and recommend to family and friends!

Were glad you liked our motel and enjoyed your stay. You had a great view of the HoHo H20 right across from your room. That mini golf course we put in 2 1/2 years ago was designed by a company that is 3 generations. We picked holes that were both fun for the children and challenging for the adults. Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We look forward to seeing you's again.

Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you and your family again.

We ALWAYS APPRECIATE the time that our guests take to share there stay with future guests. P.S You can live here any time you want we have an extra room, we could use the help. :0)

First let me say my boyfriend and i LOVE this Motel for many reasons.
1) The owners are social, friendly, kind, and treat you as if you were family.

2) The rooms are SPOTLESS! now i once worked for a cleaning agency, and believe me not many places are clean like this Motel. When you walk in it smells clean! no over powering bleach smell / chemicals so its very nice. When ever my boyfriend and i went out for the day we would ALWAYS come back to our room as if we were just arriving. She even washes the comforters! ok people i hate to tell you this but MANY places DO NOT wash the comforters or throw pillows because of how much work it is. but this place does. The female owner does all the cleaning, and it truly made us feel like she cared about everyone who was staying there. The bathroom was sparkling! there wasnt even any smudges on the mirrors! NOT one spot of dust (I actually tried to find some lol) i even looked under the beds and of course spotless!

3) complimentary breakfast very awesome. The owners are not cheap like other places they actually put out A LOT of varitry. 2-3 different kinds of bagel even whole wheat, 2 kinds of coffee and juice. milk, 2 types of muffins, 3 types of danishes. If there isnt something there you like the female owner is kind enough to pick it up for tomorrows breakfast!

4) they have Mini golf that is for free for individuals staying at the Motel.

5) they are right across from santas village! you can walk right over.

6) they have a pool, and its ALWAYS clean! I see the owners always going outside to check it.

7) They have a HUGE selection of videos you can Sign out and watch. not just kiddy movies like some places but all types comedy, horror, romance, sci fy you name it they got it.

8) When you see the owners they always ask if everything is alright and if we need anything to just let them know.

9) the price is the BEST! its affordable, and the best price around the whole area.

There is only one negative, for me personally i enjoy a soft soft bed and some of the beds here are firm. but thats just me :)

My boyfriend and I stayed here last memorial day weekend in 2011 but this May we will be staying at the Grand Mountain View to celebrate our anniversary but we have found ourselves constantly talking about how great this place is and how we DEFF want to come back before 2013. we just enjoy it. Thank you for running a Motel with such high class at a Bargain price :)

Our famiily thanks you very much for taking the time to right such a lengthy review. Sorry for the late response. We haven't been on this site to much, with the lack of snow we weren't that busy so we haven't been checking here to often. We're glad you liked the place and nothing really changes. We try to do the best we can every day to make people happy. We've always served the public since we were kids from waiting tables to delivering pizza and nothing has changed. Treat people the way you like to be treated and do your best every day. And it worked. It got us here and we've increased business tremendously. Next time you plan on coming up and want a softer bed let us know when you make the reservation. We do have rooms with softer mattress's that you may like better. Again thank you for your support, we look forward to seeing you's again.
