“Good value, walking distance to Settler's Green”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2010

We stayed here for 2 separate time periods during September. the first time we stayed in a King deluxe room, the 2nd time a double queen room. if you have a choice, pick the King Deluxe rooms in the building around back. they're a lot quieter. great location, close to the outlets. for the price, you get great value and i wouldn't hesitate from recommending it to my friends.

This motel is clean, the rooms are large, even with a cot, and have a fridge and microwave. The pool is smaller, but no one was using it when we were there and the hot tub is hot! Nice backyard- like area around the pool and a couple of patio chairs to sit out back of each unit. There is also a washer and dryer available. Parking is right in front of the room. I only wish we had stayed longer and shopped more!!!

We have stayed at this motel several times and enjoy it more each time. This time we stayed in early August 2010. I could not get over just how CLEAN our room was. No dust in the corners, no hair in the tub, none of the usual things we tend to find in any hotel or resort we have ever stayed in. This is not a resort but a very modern, clean, and comfortable motel. I think all of the rooms have been recently renovated.

Beautiful large yard, great outdoor pool with hot tub, and a play area for the kids which is brand new. The play area is far away enough from the pool as not to bother other guests with playing children, but close enough to always be in view of parents. Lots of picnic tables.

We stayed in a king deluxe room which was larger than a standard room that included a microwave, fridge, cable TV, and couch with coffee table. Very large bathroom with granite countertop, excellent shower with a curved shower rod for more elbow room. Plenty of hangers in the closet. Very friendly staff, too. A great stay at a great value!

The Golden Gables Inn was a great place to spend our vacation. I looked online for quite a while for lodging in the North Conway area, and after finding very high prices at most places, sketchy looking lodging in the lower priced places, and looking at Trip Advisor, I chose the Golden Gables. And it turned out to be a great choice!

The check in was fast and friendly. Without us having to ask, the guy at the desk gave us maps of the area and recommended restaurants - and his recommendations were all great! Our room (Room 204) was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. We never heard any noise from other rooms, and the hotel was full the entire time we were there. The hotel grounds were very well maintained, with a pool and hot tub set in a large lawn area. The pool was small, but it was just fine for cooling off after a day of hiking. With our AAA discount, we paid $105 per night, which was at least $50 per night less than most other hotels in the area.

All rooms appeared to have either a balcony or patio, ours had a balcony with two chairs and a small table. Our room had a king bed, couch, small fridge and microwave,and flat panel TV, desk and chair . They have free wireless internet which worked well, not super fast, but fast enough and we didn't have any problems with it. The bed and linens were comfortable, we slept great! The decor was not our style - traditional/colonial - but the furniture was clean and in very good condition. The bathroom was larger than most hotels, with a long contertop for all of your bathroom stuff! One feature we loved was that the hot water came up immediately and was plentiful and the temperature didn't fluctuate when others used water! The air conditioner/heater was very quiet! The only drawback was that it was high on the wall above the bed and it blew the air directly on you in bed.

The hotel location was good for us, within walking distance (some are adjacent, others within 1 mile, which is our "walkng distance") of several restaurants and stores and not far from the outlet stores. It was a couple of miles south of the "downtown" area, so driving there was necessary, but that was fine with us. We were interested in thne train trip and hiking, and it was easy to access both of those activities.

A few items to note if they are important to you:
There are no elevators.
Many of the first floor rooms with patios had the patio directly in front of the parking lot, so cars are parked about four feet from your patio. The patios and balconies do face the lawn/pool area, not the street side.
The pool is small, so if you are taking a bunch of kids or want to swim laps, you may be disappointed.
Take a power strip, most of the outlets are behind furniture. (I always take a power strip to hotels!)

We really enjoyed our stay and will stay there if we visit North Conway again!

We stayed 2 nights at the Golden Gables in North Conway.
Excellent rooms, very clean and excellent value for the money. Breakfast not included but on the other side of the street, at the bleuberry muffin, you can have any breakfast you like. We had a room at the front and had a nice balcony at the back.
What was very much appreciated is an extra e-mail from the hotel at the time of reservation. We were informed that during the weekend we stayed there, there was a bikers meeting with barbecue in the hotel garden. It was brought to our attention that some inconvenience could take place and if we would like to reconsider that was just fine. Luckily we didn't and as good as they managed our booking they took care of the bikers barbecue. No inconvenience at all !!
Even in the morning the bikers started to show that they were riding a Harley Davidson as they were well on the road.
Highly recommended !

We booked two nights (Sat&Sun) last weekend at the Golden Gables and my only regret was not booking Friday night as well. We were on the ground floor, two Queen beds and the room was literally twice the size of the room we stayed at on Friday (as we hadn't booked anything, thinking we wouldn't be able to drive straight thru). It was probably the cleanest room I've stayed in, which is really important to us as we were traveling with our 3 year old. I loved the fact that we had a back door that led out to a patio with some chairs and it was great to let our son run down to the playground without fear of traffic, etc. Beautiful grounds, super warm pool and hot tub and overall great location.

We have already told all of our friends about Golden Gables and look forward to staying there again!
