My husband works in Littleton from time to time - usually 1 -2 weeks at a time and I usually travel with him. I love Littleton and for several years really enjoyed staying at Thayer's Inn. We once spent a month there.
The history of the place IS interesting. The location is wonderful..right downtown and backs up to the river. For many years this hotel was owned by the Eames family, a local Littleton family. They had the same innkeepers - Don and Carolyn for many many years. Don and Carolyn retired and the Eames sold the inn. Big mistake.
The folks who bought it are running it in to the ground. One night there was a very loud party going on directly over us. We waited several hours for it to quiet down (I hate to complain) and finally went upstairs at 3AM to ask them to hold it down a little. Guess who answered the door..the manger of the hotel. Seems he was partying with his friends. They didn't quiet down until almost dawn.
We also felt at times that something just wasn't "right" with the new management. They seem so very unconcerned with their guests' needs, it just kind of made you wonder what was gong on.
We've since sadly given up on Thayers are now staying at Hampton Inn..nowhere near the personality but quiet, nice room and very accomodating staff. Wish the Eames would buy the Thayers Inn back and bring it back to what it used to be..a great historic old hotel with nice, basic rooms and alot of personality.
