We stayed here during leaf peeping time & was pleasantly surprised. Room was very clean (this is a must for me) with a fridge & 4 pillows. Bathroom shower was tiny though. But since Bethel is in the middle of nowhere, ME, I was glad to find a clean room. Ruth was very nice & gave good advice for local... More

As awesome as I remember when I was a kid! Plenty of space in our room for the pack n' play, so our toddler could sleep while we watched March Madness. Close to great ski hills. Short walk to a great dinner and a nice bakery for breakfast.

My wife, 4 year old son, and I stayed here for two nights recently and loved it. The location is amazing and Ruthie and co. were very friendly, generous and happy to chat about the area. Some superb coffee is ready by 6am in the office with a eclectic collection of mugs, as well as sugar, milk, and stirring spoons.... More

We have stayed at 2 other properties in Bethel, and Ruthie's is the best value by far. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Ruthie is a delight with knowledge of the area. The location is extremely convenient, right in the middle of town, within walking distance of restaurants and shopping.

When I booked this place I was a little unsure about what we would find when we arrived to stay in July; after all, its painted blue, its up-stairs and its on the road! Which just goes to show how you should never pay attention to prejudice! This a very lovely, and a rather special, motel. Our accommodation was out-standing;... More

Checked in for one night. Not much to choose in the area of you're looking for a cheap stay. I had a corner room, nice and clean. Towels were fluffy and comfortable bed. There is little to no wireless reception here so if you just want to drop out of the map for a while, this is a nice place

Second year in a row that we stop here on our way to Sunday River and we love the place. It's in a great village, Bethel, the motel is 30 seconds away from a convenience store and all the restaurants, the rooms are pristine and comfy, inn keepers/owners friendly and professional and care for their guests. Price is very competitive,... More

Yesterday we locked for accomodation near the White Mountains and we found by chance Ruthie's Motel. We didn't know what we could expect, but it was much more than expected! We got a very cosy, clean room. But that wasn't the point. The hosts, Ruthie and Kevin, made the one-night- stay unforgettable for us. He gave us some very good... More
