“Great spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

My daughter and her family and my husband and I stayed there for 2 nights and discovered it was a great place. Very quiet, even though there were about 20 motorcylces there, you could not hear them in the rooms. Smaller rooms but plenty big enough, porch on the back overlooking the mountains and a beautiful swimming pool. Very clean. Would definitely recommend it!

Been there at least 15 times in the past 4 years and we still enjoy it! This place is predictable (clean, quiet,....). The staff is helpful and smiling. We like the complimentary coffee and the bike stand for our motorcycle. There is a heated pool behind the motel and it is quiet and relaxing. It is in the center of North Conway and not far from the outlets, restaurants,... The price is OK and we will be back for sure!

Room Tip: If you want to use the pool or you don't want the street noise you can ask for a room behind the...

My husband and myself stay here yearly with our son, his wife and 2 granddaughters . Always very clean and quiet. Stay in back, near pool and small lawn area to play with the grandkids. Short ride to Storyland and not a bad ride to Santas village. Ice cream shop a short walk away. Hope to be back again

We stayed here on a Sat night because the rates were fantastic and we were just looking to get away for the night. The rooms were clean, small, but clean. They have new tv's small fridges, a coffee maker and hairdryer in the room. My only 2 complaints were the pillows were very cheap quality and not overly comfortable and we stayed in a room on the backside of the hotel and the lights were burnt out on our end so it was very dark when we came back after a late dinner. If we just needed a place to sleep in the valley we would stay here again for the money.

We were booked to stay at another motel down the rode which turned out to be a dump. Briarcliff saved our vacation. They had a room available. We stayed in the King Room which was very comfortable and extremely clean. They also had the room ready so we could do an early check in the next morning. It was wonderful. We liked it so much that we decided to stay and extra day. It's close to many attractions and within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Mountain view out our window was spectacular. Absolutely would stay again, the staff was great!

Room Tip: We stayed in a king room and that was great for a couple. We also looked at the rooms upstairs with...

My husband and I went on a romantic weekend right after new year's day to relax and get some time together. We enjoyed our stay at the Briarcliff. The price was more than reasonnable and the room was nice and clean. The bathroom was small but clean. The best part was the view from the back porch. It was beautiful to see the mountains right in our backyard. I wish it would have been warmer so I could have sit there to enjoy my morning coffee. There seems to be a nice pool but since it was winter, we don't know what it looks like.
The staff was very friendly and polite. The only negative point was some very loud neighbours on our last night but other than that, we had a nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with balcony at the back...the view is incredible

The Briarcliff Motel has been in North Conway for a long time, and we've been staying there a week each August for as long as I can remember. This is a lovely place to stay and relax. The owner and staff are wonderful, and the price is right.
