Another wonderful experience at Carroll motel. Our cabins and motel units were clean and cozy as usual. It was a pleasant surprise to find that they had upgraded and made a great product even better over the last year. New road, upgrades and updates to the cabins, etc. Our hosts were helpful like always. The pool was clean and refreshing. This location is nice in that it's close enough to all the great attractions but far enough away from the great attractions. Storyland was a beautiful 45 minute ride and Lincoln is about 25 minutes. The family had a great time again. We will be visiting again next August. After the last 3 years of coming here there is no reason to change what we have already found to be perfect.

Room Tip: Cabins 1-5 are right in front of large grass area, playground, pool, and fire pit

I stayed here with my two boys for 2 nights, and we had a very fun time! The owners were very nice and helpful. The motel room (#20) was very clean and beautifully decorated! The beds were very nicely made and had fresh clean sheets. My sons very much enjoyed the playground and the pool! We will definitely be staying here again!

My stay at the Carroll Motel and Cottages was very nice. The property is set away from the road and that alone makes for a great place to stay, in my opinion. I stayed in cottage 1 with my family and we were very impressed with the cleanliness and space inside. It was like a little home away from home. The owners were very friendly and kind. I will definitely keep this place in mind when planning another trip to New England, and I highly recommend it.

I stayed here with my family for a weekend, and we had a very nice stay! It was relaxing, and fun. Cottage 5 was very cute and clean. We enjoyed the pool and playground. The store across the street was very convienient and not that expensive. The owners were very nice, and welcoming! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone!

We stayed in Cottage #5 at the end of July/early August 2012 for 7 nights. As advertised, Cottage #5 has 2 bedrooms, 1 with a Queen bed and one with 2 Singles, which was perfect for the two teenagers we were travelling with. While the location was at the Northwest tip of the White Mountains, it wasn't terribly far from anything we wanted to do - 15 minutes to Littleton, 1/2 hour to Lincoln or Gorham, 45 minutes to North Conway area or Mount Washington. The cottages are set back from the highway a distance, which is good, as the Route #3 Highway they are on is a thoroughfare for trucks, especially early in the mornings. The grounds and recreation areas are very well kept, and is quite a large area for kids to play in. The pool is very clean and refreshing. Safe for kids as the edges are plastic instead of concrete, the pool walls are rubberized, and outdoor carpet covers half of the sitting area (although this may cover up some cracks in the concrete area).

The cottage itself was fine, but quite 'rustic', and somewhat older than the internet pictures make it seem. Everything was clean, but the stove, fridge and shower stall had some rust on them that could not be cleaned, and made them appear dirty at first glance. As a previous post indicated, we also found some minor garbage under the bed that had not been cleaned from a previous guest (although nothing like they found). it appears that Cottages #2 - #5 have the same basic layout. One feature we found annoying was both bedrooms have a door that leads into the bathroom. No big problem, just made for some awkward moments with two teenagers and not being sure if anyone was in the bathroom.

While we were there it was quite hot during the day, mid to high 80's. Because there was no shade late in the afternoon, it was extremely warm making and eating supper, whether indoors or out (BBQ). We knew the cottage did not have air conditioning, but even though the temperatures dropped at night, we found it very difficult to get the heat out of the cottage. One feature that would have helped immensely would have been a screen door. We either had to close the door or, if we left it open to get a breeze, flies would get into the cottage. The Cottage has 3 fans to try and keep the air moving. As with a previous post here, one of the fans was disgustingly dirty (the other two were clean). The bathroom shower stall is very small, and very short. There is a large closet in the main bedroom that holds the furnace and hot water heater, and we used it to store our suitcases and cooler. Very convenient. There are two TV's, which are small and old syle, but then we weren't there to watch TV, so I can't even comment on the channels they receive.

The owners are very responsive and helpful. Never an issue changing our towels or having our garbage picked up in the morning. Cottage #5 is closest to the motel portion, and Cottage #1 is closest to the woods. There is no daily housekeeping service, but as advertised, we did receive a mid-week "freshen up".

There is a "General Store" across the road that truly sells everything you might need. Even firewood as our cottage has a private fire pit out back, which was great for a fire each night.

Overall we had a great time in the White Mountains, and the cottages were part of that. This review is not intended to be negative, but just to point out to other readers all the good and not-so-good points we found. Would we return? I think so, although I might be tempted to book Cottage 2 or 3, which have air conditioners.
