Had a great time here. took my dad up for his birthday and they were awesome as always. Killer breakfast at Brittany's and a nice sports bar so there is no need to venture away for decent eats. Will Absolutely be back.

Thanks for the review! I am glad you enjoyed your Dads' birthday weekend. Our two restaurants, Brittany's and Cj's Penalty Box are a great convenience for our guests and are a very popular place to eat for locals alike. I hope we get the chance to host your Dads birthday weekends for many more years to come! Thanks again for the review.

Since this lodge is right by the main road, it is expected to have noise but convenient to go in and out. It is a motel and of motel standard, so cannot expect much. The owner/manager and his wife are very helpful & friendly. There is an indoor pool next building, table tennis, & restaurant.
This place offers free wifi.

Thank you for taking the time to express your opinion. We are a "motel" in the sense that you can pull up to your room and unload your luggage directly into your room. We are a lodging property located on the side of one of the most popular and scenic byways in NH., the Kancamagus Highway. My wife and I are very proud of our Lodge because we are able to offer "RESORT" amenities at "MOTEL" prices! We have two of the most popular restaurants in Lincoln, located on our property, we have a beautiful indoor pool, we have steam bath saunas in our West Lodge rooms. We offer many activities for families such as our game room,ping pong, basketball court,swing set play area, playstation gaming consoles in our family rooms and two fire pits. I think we offer much more than a standard "motel", and I look forward to hosting you again at our Lodge in the future!

Excellent, efficient and very pleasant manager; fast efficient check in procedure; comfortable large clean room; very good breakfast restaurant next door. The bar next door has a rather nice swimming pool
While this place is right by the main road through Lincoln, it IS a motel, really so not a big negative

Thank you for the review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and had an opportunity to eat at our restaurant for breakfast, and take a dip in our beautiful pool. It makes me happy that you noticed that we strive to have a fast efficient check in, we know you would rather spend time enjoying our amenities and our beautiful location rather than waiting in line at check-in. The Lodge has been extremely busy and we are always striving to improve our guest experience from check-in to check-out and we appreciate all the feedback that we receive that enables us to improve our property. My goal is to eventually have a completely electronic "check- in" to further expedite the process. We look forward to seeing you again.

We liked the upper level with the balcony very much over looking loon mountain and I hear many people that prefer the west side. Leo (owner/manager) really pays attention to detail. The bar and resturant were very good Lou really pays attention to quality and detail.(you can really see a female influence) sorry Lou
Had a Great three day stay! GREAT POOL area! GREAT VALUE! GREAT PEOPLE! GREAT STAY!

Thank you for the "great" review! I am so happy you enjoyed the view from your balcony room. The private balconies are a nice place to relax after a day enjoying the White Mountain region. Our restaurant, Brittany's has been recently renovated and the owners' (Louie) wife, Kristen, was an integral part in choosing the design and color. The restaurant looks great and I am glad you noticed. As you said it is a "great" place to stay with "great" staff and "great" guests like you who take the time to post such "great" reviews!

We were on a two week trip to New England and Maritime Canada, this was to be a one night stop towards the end of our stay. We booked the room on the 19th December 2012 for a stay on 23 September.
Unfortunately we never got to stay there because on 22nd September (the day before our planned stay) we got a text message from our daughter (who was checking our emails) to say that they were overbooked so we couldn't stay there - despite us booking more than 9 months ahead! I'm guessing they received a better offer.
They did offer an alternative property which generally gets poor reviews on TA, but if I'd wanted to stay there I'd have booked it in the first place. In the end we managed to find another property ourselves, but not in Lincoln. I travel (for fun and for business) about 100 days a year and this is the first time we've been overbooked. Not good and not appreciated especially after booking so far ahead and receiving such late notice. I've asked Booking.com (who I attach no blame to) to ask what the reason for the overbooking was - but I have heard nothing yet.

Thank you for taking the time to voice your opinion of the overbooking situation that arose during your expected one night stay. We have never intentionally overbooked a room in the 15 years we have owned our Lodge, in fact we do have safeguards in place to ensure this does not happen. The overbooking occurred as a result of a scheduled motorcoach tour who arrived two days ahead of you for a three night stay. The motorcoach arrived needing two extra rooms, due to a rooming change. This resulted in us not only having to try to relocate you for one night but also another couple who were planning to stay with us for two nights. We contacted Booking.com as soon as the situation occurred, they advised us to find you alternate lodging with similar amenities. Booking.com told us they would contact you regarding the change in your reservation. We followed up with Booking.com twice that evening by phone to make sure you were contacted regarding the situtation, as we were trying to minimize the inconvenience to you. In addition the rooms at the Resort we were trying to move you to were more expensive so we arranged to pay the difference so that the rate you had booked with us would still be honored. We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience this caused you, and we apologize for the uncontrollable series of events that caused you to be unhappy. Unfortunately we had no advanced warning that the group would require extra rooms and as they were traveling on a motorcoach all together it was impossible to relocate anyone away from the group. We do not take "better offers" as you suggested, there was absolutely no malice intended in the overbooking situation. We tried our best to correct an uncontrollable situation and we truly regret not being able to recitify it to your satisfation. The convenience of booking reservations online is tremendous, but it does lack the personalized attention that a hotel representative can give, so we are also sorry that the reasons for your overbooking were not communicated to you by your online booking agent.
