Clean rooms (ask about the deluxe rooms, they are even better), friendly hosts. Our go-to place in Sunday River. Nothing fancy in the rooms but it has a microwave and refrigerated. The whole place inside seems to be fairly newly-renovated.

Everything was great except the bed. Room was clean, quiet, liked the fridge and micro wave. Only complaint was the bed was terrible. A nice, new comfortable matress would have made a perfect stay. Felt like the mattress was 50 years old. Lumpy and sagged in the middle.

This motel is very nice..The owner had given us good directions so we had no problem locating it.. Our rooms had everything we needed and it was clean and comfortable. Our short stay was very pleasant. We will definitely stop there again.

Clean and very inexpensive. An old-fashioned motor inn along a rural two-lane highway with flowers in front and trees around. Near the White Mountains and convenient for a road trip. WIFI. Mattress was somewhat saggy, the room was small and did not have a vent fan in the bathroom, but otherwise fine, and for the low price, I was pleased... More

The room is pretty basic and everything was very clean. It has a CRT TV with cable, bed, minifridge, microwave, baseboard heating, window shaker AC, full bathroom. The price is really good though, it cost around $55/night in spring. It's in a decent location with shorts drives to restaurants, skiing, the White Mountains and other attractions. The owners were very... More

Paid $60 for a Friday night stay in late March so we could get an early start for Saturday skiing and avoid a 3 hour drive up in the morning. This place is a typical New England roadside "motor lodge" that's gotta be 40 years old. The place is simple. Bed, bath, tube TV, heat. The room we had was... More

We booked this Motel because we were Staying at the Sunday River resort for the week but wanted to be up in the area for our check-in date as we live over three hours away. The price was definitely reasonable (I believe it was around $79 with tax). The owners were very nice and helpful. The room was pretty much... More

This place is very inexpensive so don't expect fancy rooms, health club, or a hot tub. But if you are looking for a functional place that is convenient to Bethel attractions and right off Rte 2, then this is a good choice. They also have some pet-friendly rooms which is a plus.

Never have been to a place where the air conditioner plugs are padlocked tp prevent guests from using. Beds were brutal.
