“Where Kitsch Reigns”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

My wife and I debated on whether to give this motel a two or three star rating. We settled on three stars because the value (rate) wasn't bad, given the tourist area in which it's located, and because the room was full of so much kitschy stuff on the walls that it kept us amused. The room was very small, relatively clean, though in dire need of upgrades (yes, this is a popular tourist area, so why not keep your motel up to date). The owner told me he'd only owned the motel for three months, so it will be interesting to see what he does to improve it over the next few years.

This is definitely a one-nighter. Two nights and you'll be driven to distraction by the stuff on the walls, unless you're a kitsch aficionado. Doubt that we'd return to this motel.

Room Tip: Make sure you can turn around.

The issue of room decorations has been the subject of debate with our guests and TripAdvisor reviewers and we appreciate the input. As previously mentioned, we've been here just a few months taking over from owners who were here for 14 years. We will be making needed upgrades in many of the rooms as well as evaluating the value of the room themes. We would encourage you to check back with us during your next visit and give us a chance to to change your thoughts regarding our motel.

Thanks ...

To say this is a throw back is an understatement. Room was ok, too many chickens, took a long time for the hot water to get to the shower. Light outside of door kept us up at night.
Room was good size, beds comfy. Room could have been cleaner. I think saying somewhere outside of Weirs Beach is the best bet.

We appreciate your recent visit and comments. As policy we like to show our guest the room in advance to double check that the room is ready to go and that he will be happy with that room. I'm wondering if we missed the tour with you, as we can get busy at the front desk. Would you believe that many of those chickens, including the print next to the bed, were actually left behind by other guests? The same is true in most of the other themed rooms. I guess folks get into the swing of things leaving a critter behind. We realize that these rooms may not work for everyone, and we guarantee ALL rooms. I wish you had come to the office to select one of the "un-themed" rooms. I wish too that you had called the office, as the light outside your door has a switch. However, if a room cleaniness was not up to your standards, we will bring your comments to housekeeping as this is a top priority.

Again, thanks again for your input, it help us stride for total guest satisfaction.

My husband and I stayed here for one night. The current owners just purchased the place a few weeks ago. They are very friendly and hospitable. The rooms are nothing fancy but very clean and the bed was comfortable. They said they will be making some updates to the motel over the winter months. I would definitely stay there again.

Just wanted to say thanks for your recent stay with us. Yes, as any owner of a recently aquired buisiness/lifestyle would do, we've been playing with some ideas regarding updates and improvements to the motel. We wish to retain the vintage flavor while offering more modern conveniences. Stay tuned!

We have been staying at the Winnipesakee Motel for years. It's always been clean and comfortable place to kick back after a day of family adventures in the lakes region.
The rooms are a cross between a bed & breakfast and a standard motel room. Donna and Rob make you feel like your staying with friends.
So if you want a good value for your dollar and want to expirence a comfortable relaxing time we highly recommend you stay here.

We loved Lake Winnipesaukee Motel!
Perfect location, lots of parking, very clean and neat.
Close to attractions, restaurants, but on a quiet side.
Rob and Donna made our stay very special! They are very friendly and attended to our every need. their entire staff was very respectful and delightful.
We have already recommended to our friends and family if ever in Weirs beach to treat yourself to a wonderful time and stay at the Lake Winnipesaukee Motel, you will not regret it at all!

Can't say enough how wonderful our stay was, thank you!

Donna and I appreciate your most kind comments regarding our motel and we too enjoyed your visit. Weather won't be as nice today as when you were here, remnants of the hurricane rolling in.

This place is not fancy. But, for the price paid, it was a good value.

If you are looking for good, basic overnight accommodations, then this place will meet your needs. If you are bothered by mismatched sheets and mismatched bath linens, then you will probably want to look elsewhere.

Rob was very friendly, welcoming and helpful.

We would stay again.

Good location and amenable hosts, but the room, although small, was "themed" with cows and teddy bears, which gave concerns about cleanliness. The pictures and stuff are dust attractors , which was in evidence above eye level.. In the bathroom light in particular !

Storage was limited.

Disconcerting to wake up in the night and see a furry bear on a swing staining down at you. All this made the room look small, cluttered and difficult to negotiate the limited floor space.
Maybe ok for one nights stop over, but not as convenient for longer stays in the region.

We appreciate your time to offer suggestions regarding your recent visit, thank you.

You might find it interesting; many of your room accessories were actually left behind by previous guests who thought to contribute to the theme. I suppose that the more sentimental among us would later recall leaving behind a personal memento in “their” room. This would trigger pleasant vacation memories during more stressful times at work while wondering if their donation would be there to welcome them upon return. This may be one of the reasons why folks request specific themed rooms. Often groups who travel together can be seen wondering from room to room taking pictures. However, the bear on the swing was my idea and I’ve never assessed it from your point of view and will take it under consideration.

The dust on the top of the light globe above the bathroom mirror and some of the decorations is another issue and housekeeping has been notified. This fell below our radar, so thanks again for bringing it to our attention.
