Having arrived in Bethel with no reservation we found very little on offer at a reasonable rate. This place was recommended (we wrongly thought, got the names mixed up) so we walked in to enquire about availability. We were so tired we took what was offered at what we thought was quite a costly rate. When we actually got to... More

We booked this place through our timeshare RCI. We arrived late afternoon and pulled into what looked like an old motel. We were expecting something more like a condo like most of our timeshare bookings. We tried to be open minded. We walked into the lobby to check in. The lobby was connected to the "motel" as an add-on which... More

Have stayed here a few times a number of years ago liked it then and like it now. Two very nice rooms with COMFORTABLE BEDS. Nice kitchen area with a Keurig great to have a good cup of coffee in the morning. Lovely big table. Living area nice with a large T.V. Although some of the furniture may be "dated"... More

I stayed here for one night before continuing my drive to Portland. The girls at the desk were very nice and welcoming. The rooms are very spacious and clean. However, they are very outdated and a renovation would help. Also, the windows in the back of the room are very small so it is hard to get a glimpse of... More

This old motel is being marketed as a resort! The river view is best seen by binoculars! The housekeeping staff does their best but painting and new carpeting would help! We love Bethel and have previously stayed at excellent resorts nearby at Sunday River. The office staff heard my major concerns about a broken deadbolt and a nonfunction light over... More

This place was perfect for our weekend - two bedrooms, kitchen/dining & living room space. The place was clean and the woman we dealt with at the front desk was a sweetheart. It really was exactly what we needed!

Have stayed here many times over the last 12 years or so. I have great fondness for River View, because it taught me about the world of timeshares. I was an owner here for quite a few years, always exchanging my week to go someplace else. This was my home resort, and as such could come here anytime I chose... More

Nice place to stay, good value for the money. Yes there are likely much better places, but all are likely much more expensive. This is a good value for the money, the staff was very accommodating and friendly. Great little kitchenette w stove, microwave, fridge and toaster. Dishes and pots and pans avail in each room. Rooms have small ironing... More

Where to start.... Do not expect a Ritz or anything and we are experienced timeshare holders, but if you are going to open a "motel" and make it a "resort" make sure you present the location as resort material. Wall paper coming down, food on ceiling, water marks on ceiling and spray painted over, water heater apart and fiberglass on... More
