Our visit to drive-in theater was just great! We saw some disaster-movie, listened the voice straight from the car`s speakers and felt like we are right in middle of the movie. Because it was so late we did not stay for the second movie. There were "served" two movies with one ticket. We bought salads from normal foodstore to bring... More

If I were traveling by myself, I would not have stayed here. The reason for us going to this motel was the Drive-In Theater. The first time we pulled into the parking lot, I told my husband to turn around & leave - not very appealing! Then we had dinner & I read reviews on TripAdvisor so we decided to... More

I was in the upper valley for my 5oth high school class reunion and wanted to make this a sort of a 60's retro trip so I booked a room here for a week. It was great. The owners are friendly and they have done a super job of upgrading this old-time roadside motel. The rooms are squeaky clean and... More

What a pleasant surprise! Rough looking when you pull up but don't turn around! Clean, upgraded, comfortable beds. Nice flat screen with satellite TV. Refrigerator. Quirky especially with drive in movie easily seen through large back window and good in room sound. Manager had to hurry through check in to go rescue an escaped animal at his farm: just added...

Bring your kids to this place! It's a quaint-looking old timey side of the road hotel. But it's so much more. Great amenities include a fridge, microwave, flat screen, and a set of twin bunk beds in our king sized bed room. It would be perfect for a family of 4-5. Plus you can watch the movie thru the back... More

Talk about a shot in the dark. This is not much to look at from the outside. However when I got to my room, Holy Cow!!!. The room is updated, very clean and spacious. The bed was large and very comfortable. I could even watch the drive in movie from my window, that was pretty cool!!. Never judge a book... More

This place is in a remote (and beautiful) area on the border of Vermont and New Hampshire where there is not much lodging available. Although the motel is older, it has been kept up very well. The room was surprisingly clean and roomy and the bed was very comfortable. On the downside, there's no ice machine, but there is a... More

What a great little motel. After a long, traffic-filled drive from New York, I was really grateful to arrive here. In town for a wedding, many guests were staying at a nearby resort but to stay on budget my boyfriend and I booked a room at the Fairlee Motel. Unfortunately we arrived after the second showing had ended (or, maybe,... More

We were a little bit hesitant about staying here, but we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very clean and good sized. They have a mini fridge, flat screen tv and microwave. The bathrooms were spotless. We even watched the movie that night from our room even though we were there for a wedding. Only bummer was that you had... More

I have been going to this drive in every year since i was a small child. great place to take a family. One screen is available but it is a very classic setting. Two movies are shown on the weekend and one during the week. It can get crowded on the weekend and you may have to get there early.... More
