Wow! Love this place. The newly decorated rooms are beautiful. Love the location, right next to the French King Bridge and CT river. The restaurant is charming and the food is excellent. The best place to stay in the entire area. Will be staying again when we come back in August. The revitalization of this motel/restaurant is exciting to see.... More

Heading south out of Maine, we encountered no vacancy at any motel, large or small, along the way. We got to Erving at 9 p.m. They kept the restaurant open for just us two. Food and service were terrific! The innkeepers were not quite prepared to reopen the motel after remodeling and refurbishing, and apologized that they couldn't put us... More

I was in Mass visiting family and they suggested we go here. I can see why. Excellent food and service. Beautiful inside and an outside deck if weather permits. The stuffed shrimp was amazing. I can't wait to go back.

While traveling with another couple in the area, they recommended stopping here for an early dinner otherwise we would have kept on driving by. The place does not look very inviting and there were no other cars in the lot. We arrived a few minutes before they opened for dinner but the waitress said we could come in and order... More

This is my second trip to the French King Restaurant. This is the areas best food and price restaurant. My gf had Prime Rib and I had Pot Roast Dinner ( $12.99 ). And it was great. I'll be back again.

there is something special about calling a motor lodge and the owner remembers you from last year! your name, your car, your brother you come to visit! Frank is that guy whose family has owned the motor lodge since 1953 and is as much of a local mountain, fishing, jeeping guy as he is a motel and restaurant owner...i have... More

It is a great motel. It is rustic, which matches the surrounding beautiful environment. It is close to a beautiful river gorge and hikes. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you have an issue with anything just ask them. The key to a great stay is communication of anything you want. Need extra blankets, towels? They are there... More

I consider myself a VT redneck girl who is most definitely not a princess. However, when I checked in and went to my room with my 13 month old daughter, I walked out of the room 5 minutes later and asked for a refund. There was dry rot in the bathroom doorjam, the tub hadn't been cleaned since who knows... More

We had a wedding in the area and didn't have much choice so we ended up here. Find another place. When we got here there was a sign in the office saying the attendant was in the restaraunt...sure thing. I walked through the ENTIRE place yelling "HELLO!" over and over again to no avail. Then I figured I'd call the... More

Had planned on staying in Keen but it was their pumpkin festival and everything was full. So kept on driving, thought we would get to Boston before finding anything, so was very pleased to come across this motel. However the rooms were very dated and not very clean. The bathroom had a dripping tap. We did eat in the resturant,... More
