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

This was a clean, comfortable and great hotel. You cannot go wrong staying here - it is a great location to anywhere within Bethel as well as the surrounding areas. There are a couple of restaurant's and pubs within walking distance, a small grocery store just 2 buildings up, and easy access to the shops. My husband and I used... More

I was looking for an inexpensive place for my husband and I to stay within Bethel Village. As I was registered for the Maine State Triathlon, I was hoping for somewhere that would allow me to check out later than normal (without an ridiculously elevated fee) so that I could duck in for a shower after the race, before driving...

The hotel is in a great location in the center of town and it has a lot of charm. If you are looking for a resort the Bethel Inn is the place as the Bethel Village Motel is simple and affordable. It does have a nice porch as you can see from the picture. It is perfect for a weekend... More

An affordable, clean, conveniently located motel 15 min away from Sunday River. Looks lovely inside and out, on the 2nd floor of a clothing retail store that's very pretty. Our room was very clean, so were staircase and hallway despite the snow-sand mix spread everywhere in town after a recent snow storm. Bathroom has been renovated recently, shower worked great....

Stayed here over the summer whilst on honeymoon. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly and gave us advice on places to eat and directions for our onward journey. It has so much character and charm and is very homely. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

I almost hate to review this place because it is my favorite place to stay on vendor trips to Bethel's several art festivals, and someday I will be told she has no vacancy as travelers eventually find the in-town convenience, freshness of the rooms and charm of Ruthies little hotel. For the naysayers on this forum, go stay at the... More
