“We'll definitely stay here again”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

This was our first stay at Golden Gables Inn but we will certainly be back. At check in we were pleasantly greeted. The grounds were very well maintained and clean. There was a decent play area that our kids enjoyed, and a nice pool and hot tub which we also used. Additionally they have a patio area with a fire pit and grill. Our room was away from the road behind the main building. It was very clean. The only reason why I give it 4 instead of 5 stars for cleanliness is because one of the bed spreads had a couple of stains on it (not a huge deal). Overall, the golden gables inn was a nice value and the perfect location for our New Hampshire getaway.

We decided to try to Golden Gables Inn on our second visit to North Conway New Hampshire. We had reserved a regular King room, which was facing the street on street level near the office. They did a great job with these rooms, furnishings are nicely done and it is very attractive but maybe just a bit small. Biggest and nicest HD TV I have ever seen in a hotel room, with an on screen guide that actually worked. Beautiful view out the back of the room with our own balcony. Bathroom small but again nicely done, could have maybe used a little more counter or shelving but overall very nice.

I would have given it the highest ratings except for two things.
1) The Wifi was very unreliable, sometimes it worked and sometimes it did not. Many times I tried looking up things on my iPad and had to switch to the iPhone so it did not go through the Wifi.
2) Our room, being on street level, got quite a bit of road noise, particularly large trucks going down the street at 6 am. Didn't bother us at night, it was only those morning hours.

We would stay here again, but would get a different room in a different building on a lower level to get a quieter room. Staff was pleasant, laundry facilities convenient, and the pool and spa (which we didn't use) was very inviting.

Room Tip: Don't get a room at street level - ask for one in the back area to help with the early morning n...

The property is very nice and clean. Kids enjoyed the pool and the fire pit. stayed 4 nights in August in the lower part of the property near the train tracks. Only saw the train once. Never goes by at night. Those rooms are supposed to be a little bigger. We had room for 2 parents and 2 kids. Since kids didn't want to share the bed we brought a twin aero bed and put it near the window. Had room for that with no problem.
The only complaint and reason for 4 stars was that the wifi was VERY slow and kept kicking us off. We go to Conway a lot and usually stay at a family place at the lake and part of the reason for staying in hotel was need for wifi. That was a disappointment. They need to invest in something better because we have stayed at the Residence Inn and had no problem with the wifi.
All in all I would stay here again for a clean, quiet place. If they fix the wifi then it will be first choice.

We stayed two nights with our two year old daughter while visiting storyland. Both nights were very quiet and enough for what we needed it for, sleeping. We stayed in a double bed most basic room. Only a couple of complaints though. We had to push one of the beds against the wall so our daughter didn't fall out of bed at night and when we did there was broken glass and popcorn underneath it. The other complaints are that a lightbulb was blown and the smoke alarm battery was dead and chirping loudly. They came to fix it immediately when we called though. Big Brown spider in the bathroom. Had great reviews online but I think we will look for another place next year. No DVD player or complimentary breakfast which for the price would have been nice.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Golden Gables Inn in North Conway. We have stayed at other Motels/Hotels in North Conway previously and Golden Gables was by far the best place we have stayed. We had a Deluxe King room which was spacious and exceptionally clean. Air conditioning worked perfectly. Loved that we had a balcony to sit out on and it overlooked the pool and fire pit.

The beds were the most comfortable we have run across in our travels - best water pressure in the shower as well!! Hotel was very close to everything and in a perfect location.

Would highly recommend the Golden Gables and will definitely be returning!!

I called to make a reservation and was told I would need to wait until Sunday (3 days) and call back to see if it was available or not as they were holding that room for someone who MAY want that room and would let them know for sure on Sunday. Turned away a customer for someone who wasn't sure they were taking the room! Unbelievable!!!

TripAdvisor can be a great tool for customers that would like to offer their opinions on their past stays. Unfortunately for this customer, they did not actually stay at the property. Instead, they opted to make a careless statement based on their preconceived experience. The room in question was the last available that would accommodate her group for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend. With a seven day notice prior to the weekend, there are not always many options left. As a courtesy to a frequent guest, the office was holding a room until the reservation could or could not be confirmed on Sunday. This was explained to the "reviewer", but in their opinion this was not a satisfactory answer.

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights in August, 2014. We had a very enjoyable stay. The room was very clean and beds were very comfortable. Staff were very helpful and looked after our every need. Each unit had its own balcony. The hotel was in walking distance of Settlers Green and restaurants. Would certain recommend this motel to everybody.

Room Tip: An end unit on the second floor.
