we were looking for a place to stay for 2 nights over the holiday weekend, we chose this motel because we just needed somewhere to sleep at the end of long skiing/snowshoeing days. The rooms are nice because they have a fridge and microwave and are very clean. The beds were pretty uncomfortable (we had a kind size bed hat... More

The property looks lovely as you drive by but if you stay in one of the cabins you get a different perspective on the inside. Frankly the cabins are very outdated, plumbing needs work, the faucets leaked in the sink on both hot and cold water. The walls I believe date back to the original construction of the cabins, they...

I took many of the reviews into consideration before committing to this Motel and was quite pleased that I did. Truly a memorable stay...Location of the Motel overlooking a babbling brook was out of a story book, backed up to the woods, afterall, this is the White Mountains, and run by a perfect host "SAM" who couldn't do enough for...

We booked this room just for an overnight for our anniversary, was pleased with the price.....but sometimes you get what you ask for. The moment we walked in we were on the phone with another hotel, this place is awful. I dont know what got me first, the smell, the bathroom, the dirty carpet, the tape on the shower head... More

I dont know what some of the folks reviewing expected but compared the resort place up the road this was a bargain. The cottages were clean and functional. We had two a/c units both fairly new, micro fridge and plenty of light. Quiet and nice view of river behind. We were very satisfied and would stay again if in the... More

It's not a 4-star hotel, but the very reasonable price (for Lincoln) reflects that. There are a few maintenance issues as mentioned in other reviews such as the sheet vinyl pulling up at the edges in the bathroom, but overall it was a pleasant experience. It was quiet, the river flowing right behind the motel was beautiful, and the room... More

I read the reviews after making my reservation and nearly cancelled. So glad I didn't. I stayed three nights and enjoyed myself. Yes, it is older and could use updating (and more outlets)- but it was very clean . I also stayed in unit 2 so don't really understand the complaints. The people there were extremely helpful and friendly. I... More

Well i did not enjoy my stay. It wasn't very clean. The service at the front desk was terrible. They stole $50 off my credit card and they are crooks. The rooms are very very small. The fridge is very small. I felt closterphobic. I would not recommend staying there.

I can't say anything nice about this place. I stayed 1 night and that was enough. Musty smelly room, over loaded wall outlets, outlets that didn't work. Tile coming off walls, vinyl flooring pulling up around edges in bathroom, tub calking needed re-doing. Very old AC unit and very dirty dust covered AC unit fins. Bedspread very musty smelling.

Excellent rooms for little money. Be prepared to stay in the 50's. Laid back hotel built in the 50's. Nothing is up dated. No pool. No breakfast but there are lots of low priced places nearby for breakfast. Nice owner's. They can't do enough for you. They are new to this country but understand customer service. If online booking is... More
