The hotel is located right on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee. The room was a little shabby but adequate. The staff was friendly and helpful. There's no restaurant on site but they do offer a typical continental breakfast that was ok. My husband was able to do some fishing right off the dock and my son and I did some... More

The rooms are a bit outdated, they don't have a restaurant onsite, but there are some local restaurants close by. They have a private beach and deck that are very peaceful! The town beach and playground are next door, but you would never know it. There is never a lot of noise. They have several dock spaces for boats. Each... More

The hotel itself is pretty old but the rooms are starting to get renovated. Some stuff in them are new and other thing are still old. The hotel has a nice view and the private beach is amazing. It has a lot of chairs, kayak (wich suprised me) and tables. The place in general is pretty nice. The thing that... More

Better to stay at a Motel 6 then at Center Harbor Inn! Motel 6 you know what to expect and I don't mean this as an insult to Motel 6. This is a run down property and owner is not investing into it. Dark rooms, cracked walls, hard beds, small rooms, lack of security, 1 key (not a key card),... More

Too bad the rating is not a negative number. Yes, there is a balcony but you can't sit on it as it's disgusting - no shower head - cig burns on the tub. Had to sleep in long sleeves and long pants. Bed is hard as a rock. Morning coffee in office was not drinkable. Had to clean bathroom myself... More

6/13/15: Arrived late evening and was greeted by lovely young woman (sorry can't remember your name :( ) and next morning asked Antonio at the front desk where could go for breakfast. He offered the Inn's continental breakfast but I told him we were seeking eggs, bacon etc. As I filled my coffee cup I overheard him taking the initiative... More

Left note about it in the morning (we left before office opened). Bathroom was not done when we got back (at 7 pm),nor was room cleaned, beds made, coffee machine... More

Between the chipping paint, pealing wallpaper and out dated brouchers for local activities that date to 2013/2014 this place is a huge waste of time. Apparently the two most desirable rooms on the beach are for the help. And they leave lightbulbs laying in the hallway. The smell, hard beds and grungy ambiance is definetly not worth the money. There... More

When I told the management that the beds were stiff and the rooms smelled strongly of a urine-like moldy stench they did not refund my money for the next night. Very poor service, moldy, old and unattractive hotel. Do yourself a favor and go someplace else.
