Have stayed at this motel a few times and Eva and her husband are very hospitable and keep the prices low for all to be able to enjoy. They are such great people and I always enjoy spending locally, especially at a small mom and pop type place. The rooms are average and have all the basics. If you just... More

My husband and I stopped into the School House Motel because it didn't look quite as expensive as others we had driven by...we were wrong. We paid premium rate after the Columbus Day weekend, not sure what the rate would have been prior to that because I would have thought it our visit would have been "off season". The room... More

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to review are motel. The internet username and password for the internet is on every exit door . Maybe someone had taken the note. We don't have coffee or microwaves in rooms so little critters don't come around. We do have all of the above in the office. The prices vary by season and... More

Stayed there a few weekends ago (3 couples). Rooms are pretty basic and bathrooms small, however, clean and functional if you are just looking for a place to sleep that's good for parking the bikes (can park right outside your room) and within walking distance of a few restaurant options, but not right in the heart of the shops, etc....

We stayed at the School House Motel in North Conway while traveling in the White Mountains area. I rely heavily on Tripadvisor ratings and reviews and booked this motel based solely on what I read. I wasn't disappointed. As other reviewers pointed out, the rooms are small. And as the owners replied, the motel is not a brand new Marriott.... More

We stayed in the duplex cottage closest to the road. I had booked the next cottage over because I like the pine paneling and being more off the road. The owner explained that she had rented it to a party who wanted both sides. The cottage we stayed in was larger but lacked the charm. It was very clean. The... More

Great location and very nice people running the place. Well cared-for exterior and grounds. The furniture and (especially) the mattresses are ready for replacement, but still functional. The mattresses, however, were covered with some sort of plastic(?) that made aloud crackling whenever someone rolled over. That on top of the traffic noise made this not a good choice for a... More

We tend to go to North Conway once or twice a year. It's our favorite place to visit. We stay at the School House Motel since it's reasonable priced. The rooms themselves, especially the cottages could use some updating but they are very clean and the staff is very friendly. They could use a ice machine.

Not the high end type of motel but for this amount of cost what you do get is a clean room,friendly people and a great view. We came To North Conway to shop and this place was close by with parking just outside our room The people running the place are overly friendly and the room is clean

This was not our first time booking here. The staff is super friendly, the rooms are comfortable, reasonable and very clean. Lovely pool behind the motel so you can relax without hearing the traffic on the main drag. For those interested, the owner speaks French and is really friendly and accomodating.
