We had a good experience. The first person we contacted was Nicole and she was great in giving us the right room we liked and at the right price we liked. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this facility.

I'm kind of surprised at the negative reviews of this property because I've stayed several times and always had an excellent experience. If you're expecting a Manhattan Regency, go there. If you want a clean and friendly hotel in the middle of the gorgeous New Hampshire mountains, you won't get better value for your money than this motel. Indoor and... More

Choice hotels should be ashamed to have this motel as part of their chain. The two bedroom suite we booked was unbearable with damp pet smell. Was then moved to a room with two double beds where the A/C didn't work. Continental breakfast area in lobby is woefully small given the number of rooms. Expect to wait for a table... More

Very Clean place to stay. This is a comfortable place to stay and is in the hub of a nice area for tourist attractions. There is a pool that is well maintained. The staff is friendly and accomodating.

We stayed at the Econo Lodge on a recent trip to Lincoln. It is on the main road; although this part of NH the main road isn't very busy with traffic. The room was clean and comfortable. There is an indoor pool that is well maintained as well. The location is great as it is in between Lincoln, in one... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, and the other reviews are spot on. Not awful, but not good. Has potential to be much better. Pool sides were grimy, concrete dirty. Jacuzzi looked gross. Rooms we OK, but paper thin walls allowed us to hear every foul remark in the room next to us. Heating system sucked, it was a wall unit... More

I didn't like this place at all from the moment we opened the door, it smelled so musty. Its very outdated, and somewhat dirty. I almost wanted to leave, but I had already paid $150 for the room and didn't feel like driving the 3 hours home. My boyfriend wouldn't even get under the blankets in bed. In the morning... More

Stayed two nights for fall colors. Rates were substantially less than others in the area. Rooms were clean, with comfortable beds and quiet. The motif is eclectic or as some would say dated. The pool and spa were clean and accessible without going outside. The breakfast area was small (3 small tables and 2 easy chairs) and crowded on one... More
