In the middle of October, my husband and I decided to go on a little autumn jaunt up through Western Mass, New Hampshire (looking for moose - no luck!), Vermont, across Lake Champlain into NY and down through the Adirondacks. Not the most spectacular colors, we were a little early. We looked around on-line for somewhere fun to stay and saw The Thayer Inn here on Trip Advisor, so decided to give it a shot, especially since we saw under "Deals" that if you used the word Commercial, the rooms were $79 per night - no where on the Deals page did it say you had to be coming into town on business. When I called to make the reservations the lady asked if we were indeed going to be on business and when I said no, she was not going to give us that rate. I had the page open on-line and read it to her and she relented.

The town of Littleton is really cute and we arrived at the hotel around 4 PM on Thursday, October 11, checked in, after finally finding someone to man the front desk. Let me just say, we were not made to feel very welcome! Everything looked old and charming - but no elevator - not even a tiny one like at the Nonantum in Kennebunkport. Lugged our suitcases (alas, we are not light packers!) up to our room. Again, the wide hallway upstairs, with its crooked and creaky floors, gorgeous artwork and furnishings was threadbare, but nice! An actual old fashioned key opened (with difficulty) the flimsy door to our room which was about as big as a postage stamp. There was an extremely small, queen sized bed which took up the entire room except for the 1 foot pathway to the bathroom - and I use that term loosely. The ancient pedestal sink was actually in the room with us with a hideous dim fluorescent light above it. The bathroom consisted of a wobbly toilet and tiny shower stall. The ceiling light in the dungeon, as we called it, since there was no window, kept dimming and brightening - we were hoping for ghosts and not a short in the wiring! There was no closet in the room, but a metal thing with a couple of hangers was perched on the wall above the dorm-size refrigerator, which was wedged in between an antique dresser and filthy wing chair. Said wing chair was in front of an equally filthy window overlooking.....the dumpster. The bed was like a torture rack, but lumpier. The radiator didn't work but the little floor space that was left was taken up by a radiator-shaped space heater. There was not one inch of space to put a suitcase down, toiletries, or anything else. It was the most inconvenient room we have ever stayed in. The paint was peeling, it didn't smell that great and looked dirty.

We were discouraged, and decided to go for a walk, which was nice. Ate at the absolutely WONDERFUL restaurant, which is kind of in the basement of the place. Loved the bartender, Pauline, and the food was excellent.

Would NEVER stay at the Thayer again, but would eat at the restaurant in a heartbeat.

The Thayers Inn was just OK. The Manager was helpfull, but nothing special about the place. The building is old, really old. Don't drop your mables, the will roll down the end of the hall, the floors are not straight. Our first room was not cleaned well, and the fridge didn't work. We got moved to a larger room, which was nice and clean. Best thing about the place, the bar in the basement, we ate there twice.

While not a luxury hotel, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Thayer Inn for what it is, i.e. an historic hotel decorated in tired-but-clean colonial with a surprisingly good restaurant. Love the location: much less commercial than the Conway area, fun funky local shops, and close and easy access to hiking trails. And pet friendly: no extra charge, and they offered us a ground floor room.

Room Tip: Make reservations for the restaurant: it was very busy on a Saturday and fully booked (we opted to dine in the bar, which was fine).

Booked via booking.com months ago but ended up with the two extremely small, dated, cramped,dirty rooms at the back. The hotel has been visited in the past by famous people but no trace of the glory days remain. However, dont be too dissapointed there are current reminders of previous guests. We had some hair in the unventillated onsuit toilet/shower, some nail clippings on the carpet and the lingering cherry aroma of a previous guess on the extra pillow stuffedin a drawer. The entire room would make a great field trip for a CSI team! The TV was a small but working portable and we could,if we wished, get some videos a the front desk to play in the VCR!
Breakfast was treat with all plastic settings for serials or toasted muffins. the internet was free and good. If you can't find a cabin in the wood book in this uncared for historical building.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

This is an historic 1853 building which looks to have been converted into an inn. We had no reservation, but we were able to get a room for my husband, myself and our dog with no pet fee. There are only 2 pet friendly rooms, and they are tucked away at the end of the hall, small, sparse but charming. The smallness of the room was a little uncomfortable, but the bed slept well and everything was clean. It met our needs, but we probably wouldn't go out of our way to stay there again.
