We booked a hotel through Expedia for a weekend away in New Hampshire. It was very hard to find a room because this weekend was to be the peak weekend for the fall foliage. We drove 8 hours in the rain only to discover that we didn't have a reservation! The clerk at the hotel said Expedia never gave them... More

I would give serious thought before staying here. The beds are old, the comforters stained and dirty, the room smelled of smoke and mold, and the empty condom wrapper under the bed was more than we bargined for. We didn't stay the night.

We have never stayed here but usually vacation in the area 2 times a year. Our trip to Gorham would never be complete without breakfast at the Colonial Fort Inn. The food is great and the company is even better. Bruno makes the best pancakes and breakfast sandwiches and the accompanying conversation with his wife Mary Ann adds the spice.... More

You have to try they cuttages; and they have free fast wireless internet service!. The whole setup is coming out of a facinating Stephen King Movie. For those who like to be budget friendly and see opportunities everywhere, this is your place. Located at intersection of the Highway 2 and 16 buildings sits on a few acres lot. The place... More

They charged us $98 and didn't even have a box of kleenex in the room. Cheap everything and I mean everything. Beds were horrible, shower barely worked, and the towels were paper thin. I would never stay at this place again..I would sleep in my car first. The office is very dirty and so is the kitchen that they cook... More

Just as Jeramie P wrote about his stay in July, I experienced the same in September 2012. The room was very dirty, but that was the least of my concerns when I pulled back the covers of the bed and saw black pubic hairs on the sheet and a large fluid stain in the middle of it. It was the... More

So before staying here for 2 nights this past weekend, I had checked some of the and saw that some were negative but figured it couldn't be too too bad. Im more than comfortable camping, so I figured if there were a few spiders no big deal. The spiders in the room were the least of our worries. When we... More

I actually had a great time here.If you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay just for the night, this is the place to be. Please ignore the other negative reviews. You get your money's worth with a clean bed, hot shower, tv, AC and a fridge. The owner/receptionist, Bruno, was very warm and welcoming. He was funny and pleasant.... More
