Four of us stayed here for 2 nights this past weekend. My gf and I stayed in room A and our friends stayed in room 10. Room A was spacious and clean. Room 10 was smaller but had a screened in back porch to relax on and watch the sunset after a day of sightseeing. We were pleasantly surprised to... More

very friendly, excellent location, good value compared to other hotels/motels in the area. The porch was awesome. The bed was a little hard. We called ahead to have rooms next to each other which they accomodated and we were able to remove porch divider to access the two rooms together.

This is our 3rd year coming to the Briarcliff Motel. I read very good reviews about it and a recommendation in Frommer's guide too. It is very clean and the location is ideal. We always ask for a room in the back near the pool. The owner's are very nice and we find it is a very relaxing and pleasant... More

Room was clean and recently updated. I have stayed here in the past before the updates, I will be back in the future. The pool is nice after a long ride. My favorite rooms are in the back, motorcycles are always welcome too!

We had a very nice stay at the Briarcliff Hotel. Check in was easy, parking plenty and coffee to get us going in the early morning. We were able to walk to local restaurants and bars, avoiding the national chains that are nearby.

nice location next to shops and trails. accommodating staff, very helpful. Nicely landscaped however rooms near the road can get a little noisy from the traffic. Not a problem if fan or a/c is on or if you are used to it. Note: cars park in front of rooms so if someone leaves early you will hear the vehicle start... More

Very clean old school motor lodge with great service and great location in North Conway close to Mt. Washington and other destinations in the White Mountain region of New Hampshire. Also, within an hour drive to Lake Winnipesaukee and other lakes in the lake region of New Hampshire.

pleased to find the facilities well tended to for cleanliness. It is within walking distance of several restaurants.The motel is a good base point for going hiking or shopping. We stayed in room 4 which has a good view of the mountains outback and allows more privacy being on the end of the porch.

We stay at the Briarcliff whenever we are in North Conway. It's a nice little walk to old town. It is a no frills motel that is kept up and clean. Lots of the rooms have a screenporch with table and chairs and a nice view of the pool and the Moat mountains in the background. The pool was open... More

Decent and friendly staff. Very accommodating when we had to leave a day earlier. Wall mounted flat screen TV was nice. Pretty quiet for so close to the street. Rooms need to be updated. Bathroom faucet was loose. Tight bathroom. Overall, a good deal.
