We were looking forward to our hotel room after some driving and were disappointed. Our room did not look anything like the picture on the website. It was cold, dismal, and outdated. The front desk clerk was very unfriendly. We did have trouble with our tv which was quickly repaired by a nice guy. However, breakfast was not served until... More

Our son graduated from UNH in Durham this May so we booked a room at the Wrens Nest for two nights. We booked a basic room, in the motel unit. The room was acceptable from cleanliness, size, and convenience perspective. There is plenty of parking.The grounds are well back off the street quite large, and have some picnic tables and... More

Maybe this was a nice place a few years back, but it needs some updating. It was clean, the fireplace worked, as well as the jacuzzi tub. But for the cost, pay a little more and stay at another place. No regrets, but can't recommend for a future stay. The people in the office were very nice. We did not... More

We selected this motel because it had such a unique room-which we absolutely loved! It was done as a winter lodge - I can't remember its name but it had all the right touches. Overall the motel was nice and clean and it had a pub onsite. The proprietor was very nice and we had a pleasant stay. I thought... More

Enjoyed a lovely stay in the Isle of Shol suite this weekend. Warm cozy gas fireplace, tub for 2, brew house pub a few steps away. Small details missing prevented an excellent rating. No creamers for in room coffee, no tissues for nose, instructions on shutting of whirlpool tub. Clean, safe and very comfortable, would definitely recommend and visit again.

My boyfriend and i stayed here for two nights. He booked and planned the whole thing and surprised me. It was really lovely and we spent a lot of time just admiring the woodwork and charming decor. There was a fireplace and a hot tub and a huge bed. The little bistro on the patio was cute but the view... More

I was out exploring and ran across this place at the last minute one night. The price was a bit steep at $300.00 per night. But the room was really cool. Hot tub in the suite, knotty pine walls, new kitchen, nice TV, and super soft bed. This had all the charm of a mountain cabin, while giving up nothing... More

We stayed for only one night, so I can't really address things like service, housekeeping, etc. However, I can say that the room was clean and roomy enough. While the room does come with a fridge, coffee maker, etc., we did have an issue with the mugs for the coffee maker not being the right shape / size. So if... More

This is a unique place as stated by others. I took my husband away for his birthday and wanted something different and special. We stayed in the Isles of Shoals Suite.I had requested the romance package which was $65 more and was supposed to be there when we got there, but was brought to our room soon after arrival. We...
