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

This is a great little find if you're coming up to ski and want something comfortable and quiet. Clean, of course, is a must and they've got that covered without question. Convenience is next, and it's an easy drive to the best restaurants (loved the Black Diamond), shops, and the mountain itself. These are decent, workable one and two bedroom,... More

Stayed here for a week recently using an RCI exchange to ski at Sunday River. The location was great - only minutes to Sunday River, and there's a free shuttle bus to the mountain and to town, which we did not try. Our first impression of the room was a little disappointing; the kitchen and living area are in the... More

This was a great gem of a spot. We decided last minute to stay in Sunday River overnight and came across this hotel. The pictures on the website do not do this place justice. The rooms are bigger than you would think and very clean. The pool has a hot tub beside it which is perfect after a day on... More

Yes, the room was dated, but it was clean. It was way more than we expected. Kitchen and full fridge, table and chairs, living room area with flat screen TV, two rooms, pull out sofa bed and a cot in the closet. It was only me and my husband, when we got to the room we wished we were with... More
