Our group has been staying here for years. Ila and Manish took over 10 years ago and I said don't change a thing and we will be back. Well they didn't listen to me and they changed things...for the better. I didn't think they could improve on the property but they did. All rooms have been upgraded, redecorated and refurbished....

The Briarcliff was an excellent choice for us. Mrs. Eila gave us a warm and positive welcome. The room was clean and Mrs. Darlene did a superb job. The pool was sooo inviting and having it heated added even more fun to our adventure!

I very much enjoyed the stay at Briarcliff. The view of the mountains from my room was just wonderful. The photos of the sunsets were spectacular. I would recommend a stay at Briarcliff. The staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating. The room was well maintained and very clean. Looking forward to a return in the near future. ... Paul

It is close to many shopping center and the views are beautiful. Pool was heated for us. Can't say enough good... More

Our vacation strategy was to spend as little as possible on accommodations so that we could spend as much as possible on fun activities. So I looked at all the least expensive motels in the North Conway area and chose Briarcliff really just because they had a pool and availability and the price was very right. Even though I chose...

The views, nice cross ventilation, immaculate cleanliness and on-site owners/staff make Briarcliff Motel the perfect North Conway location. The charm of the train whistle, the warm heated pool and the close proximity to town made my 3-day stay a pleasure. So nice to be able to walk to numerous restaurants and shops! The long lawn behind the motel is a... More

We were in the area and had a health problem. They had already booked our room for the next night but got us a different room and even offered to help us pack and move our things. They were very sensitive to our needs!

Only stayed one night but had a great experience. Owner is on site and hands on. Rooms very clean. Bathrooms updated and more hotel style than motel style. Washer dryer on site and owner provided detergent. She also gave us discount coupons for restaraunts. Would definitely stay here again.

There are some good things and some not so good things about this motel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When the wi-if wasn't working, they fixed it right away. You can tell they are trying to make some improvements to the property, so some things look new. The room was clean upon arrival, and they kept us close... More
