My husband & I just got back from North Conway for the weekend. Stayed at the Briarcliff Motel. We've been there many times before & will return again. Hotel is reasonably priced. Room are VERY clean. Lots of shopping. Two Restaurants within walking distance. We had a room with a screened in porch that overlook the White Mountain of NH. Beautiful view. Lots to do. Saco River near by for canoeing, kayaking, swimming. Would recommend for couples and families. They have a very nice heated pool out back which is very clean as well. Service was top notch. Beds were comfortable as well.

We enjoyed our visit to North Conway and part of the story was our stay at Briarcliff. We only needed a room to sleep a couple of nights and us as our central location for shopping and the Briarcliff was ideal for that purpose. Very clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. I noticed that some younger guests were enjoying the attractive pool and a family was making good use of the play area in the back of the motel. The only downside, and it was not serious, was the cramped quarters in the bathroom. The coffee machine did not provide the morning cup of coffee that I like but not a big deal as there is a restaurant right next door.

We had a nice stay for two nights at the Briarcliff motel. Management was very nice and the location very convenient to town. Generally, our room was clean (see below) with two beds and a relatively new bathroom. We had two windows to give nice ventilation, but one window was over looking the parking lot and the other was overlooking a parking lot for a restaurant/bar. Traffic from route 16 was loud and noise from the bar parking lot was too loud to have the windows open even though the temperature was perfect for sleeping with windows open. Fumes from idling cars in the bar lot were bothersome as was the road noise.

The first evening, upon pulling off the bedspread, the blanket looked dirty as if sticky fingers had pressed into the blanket and I did not feel like it was clean. I notified management, who immediately gave me a new blanket still in a package. I also asked for a sheet to put on the carpet for the baby to play on. They very kindly provided this.

With three little kids, the room was a bit on the tight side as there was no eating area for the kids to snack on. I don't like to let them eat on the beds and if they ate on the floor, the baby would be into all of their things. So, for our needs the room was not a good match.

We walked all around the motel and the rear rooms overlooking the pool and lawn seem to be the way to go. I wish we would have been put in one of these. The pool looked nice, but the weather was too cool for our little children to use an outdoor pool. The upper rooms / parking lot level actually have a three season porch on them. Perhaps this allows for a small table for eating?? If so, then the room set up might work for a family with small children.

I did notice washer and dryers, but we did not use them. Also, the motel indicates it has WIfi. I don't know if it is by fee. We tried to access it for our iphones, but you needed a log on id and password and this was not provided upon check in nor listed in our room.

So, all in all, a clean nice place. Traffic noise can be loud. Rear rooms are the way to go. Pool and lawn in rear look nice. Option to have w/d great. Management very responsive.

My husband and I went to North Conway for a mini vacation and has the pleasure of staying at the Briarcliff. We found it through Trip Advisor and took a chance. Boy did we luck out. Room was a little dark due to wallpaper and dark paint, but exceptionally clean and the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in away from home. We enjoyed it so much that we extended our two night stay to three. Very quiet also for a motel that is on the highway (all other motels/hotels are as well). We are planning on returning to the Briarcliff in November. Thanks again Briarcliff for a wonderful experience!!!

Very clean and well tended motel. Rooms were small but cozy and the back deck/balcony with a superb view of the mountains was a plus.
