We stayed one night at the inn and found the motel room dark and cold. The day temperature outside was 55°F, inside the room the temperature didn't get above 63°F while the heater was on. Even though we made reservations months before, we were unfortunate enough to stay there when a wedding event was planned. We arrived early in the... More

We are sorry you didn't like your stay at The Rostay. You made your reservation 6 months before any of the other guests made their reservation. We have no way of knowing who will be making reservations on any given day. All of the rooms rented were for the wedding party, but were all made individually. Yes, many had arrived... More

The Inn was stunning. Very clean rooms, great location to surrounding amenities, pool and hot tub. The workers were exceptional, especially the owner who helped me directly with tools needed to blow up a tube. With an owner like this I now understand why the Rostay is the way it is. Thanks again for a wonderful first trip to Bethel... More

We were getting close to the end of our travel day and after a quick search on the smart phone for hotels in Bethel, the Inn at the Rostay popped up with good reviews. We decided to take a chance and called them to reserve a room - Kathy was most pleasant over the phone and assured us she would... More

We blocked all the rooms at The Rostay Inn for my daughter's guests for her wedding. She wanted her guest to have a laid back stress-free atmosphere within walking distance of her reception hall. When we were deciding where to go for the rehearsal dinner, I checked on prices at area restaurants but was pleasantly surprised when Kathy, the owner,... More

Thank you for the kind review! I think we had just as good a time as your family did! The new wedding Barn is a great asset to our business and I want to be a great asset to theirs too! We now have the lit walkway from The Wedding Barn to our property so guests won't have to walk... More

I stayed at the Inn at the Rostay and was very pleasantly surprised. Overall the room was very well kept and very clean. You can tell they recently renovated the room. The location was very convenient and the staff was extremely hospitable:) In addition the complementary morning breakfast was very good- hot pancakes with bacon.

Our room was a low-end budget motel room: cheap threadbare towels, tiny unusable desk, sparce bathroom (no cabinets, small sink, and cheap materials), and paper-thin walls (we could hear conversations next door clearly. thank goodness they went to bed early). But it was clean, the desk manager was very pleasant and the location is convenient to Sunday River. We wouldn't... More

Spent 2 days for a family of 3. Accomadations were clean and comfortable; but nothing great for the price. Inn keepers were nice. Could hear people walking outside the our door on the wooden deck early in the morning. A little loud. Towels were rough. Breakfast was 2 of 5 stars for me. Kind of gross. Tried the eggs on... More

My family of 5 stayed here in February 2014. The owners are very welcoming and accommodating. The room was large enough for us to fit comfortably even with an extra cot in the room. The walls were pretty thin so I could see how noise might be an issue, however, we were there in the winter and the other guests... More

The positives: great location- close to Sunday River and Bethel activities. Hot tub was fun and nice in the snow. Breakfast was good. The negatives: rooms are pretty gross. Although, we stayed in the 2 bedroom efficiency, so I did not see the regular rooms. Service was average at best
