“ok for one night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

(and the other is expensive and does not have air conditioning). Basic hotel room but adequately roomy (some here are not) and equipped modern (most here are not). No attached restaurant for dinner - no disadvantage as there are good to excellent ones close by. Very important - excellent breakfast in breakfast room included, as there are NOT many good places for breakfast nearby - have had to wait as long as half an hour on a previous trip some years ago before this amenity was in place

This hotel offered the best value for a hotel room in the Franconia Notch State Park area. The room was very attractive and the beds were the most comfortable of the hotels we stayed at during our traveling vacation. We enjoy having a hot breakfast included with our stay to speed up on getting our day started- waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, bagels, fresh fruit and cubed fruit, yogurt, juices, coffee with 4 choices of coffee "liquers" and more. The pool and hot tub room was lovely and had a great view out the giant windows. Even the breakfast room had windows the looked out into the pool area. We highly recommend this hotel.

Thank you for sharing your experience! Why look for any other breakfast place when you have the best one in town just steps away? We want our breakfasts to be so good that you’ll come back and stay just to have another. Don’t resist too long. We hope to see you again soon!

Great motel and we got it for cheaper than what we expected. We always look for motels with a continental breakfast and pool because we have children. This motel was a great choice for that. The pool was a big hit and the breakfast was very filling. Staff was very nice and our hotel room was very clean. You have to drive a bit to get to someplace to shop or do touristy things. We will definitely stay here again.

Check-in was a breeze. Desk clerk was very helpful in directing us to a good restaurant and getting us a room where I could keep an eye on motorcycle. Saw us looking a brocures and when he fould out what we were interested in was able to get us a discount on Cog Railway. Was a full breakfast and was very satisfactory.

Went up for a weekend in the mountains with family. Room was dirty looked as if floors weren't vacuumed. An unfriendly order through the hotel. Bathroom sink was clogged, reported it twice never fixed. it was disgusting. Couldn't get on wifi. The room next to us smoked all night even though we were told it was smoke free building.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

greetings,

we just spent a week-end in the white mountains in new hampshire and booked this hotel for two nights last minute thru best western web site.

the hotel is conveniently located right off the I-93 highway (have a hard time to understand some reviews talking about the hotel being difficult to locate...).

it`s a standard category hotel, the rooms are large enough (we had a two queens beds room), convenient and clean.

Our room was equipped with mini-fridge, microwave and coffee machine.

Being closed to the interstate, i was afraid that it might be noisy, but since the interstate itself is not so crowded, it`s relatively quiet, hence we got good quality sleep.

The breakfast was included in our rate and despite the fact that the actual breakfast room is quite small, so really crowded, the quality of the breakfast was quite ok, eggs, bacon, fruits, waffles, etc..

Very convenient for us as our plan was to wake up early and go hiking the white mountains and especially mount lafayette.

One of the trailhead leading to franconia ridge and to the summit of mount lafayette is a 10 minutes drive from the hotel, so super convenient.

Close by the hotel in the village of franconia, you will find grocery store (mac`s market) and restaurant (above the notch) where we had dinner and it was very nice to be outdoor with the great views of cannon mountain while having our dinner.

The hotel offers as well a pool and exercise room - but we didn`t use it so we can`t comment on it.

The a-c was a bit noisy, so before we went to bed we shut it down and just open the window a bit to get some fresh and crisp mountain air and we slept very nicely.

There is an outdoor playground for the kids as well and the parking is large enough and convenient.

So overall, a very good simple and clean hotel to be used as a base to explore the beautiful white mountains area.
