We ski in the North Conway area almost every wekeend during ski season and have stayed at several of the inns/motels in the area. The rates at the Clarendon are very competitive and the Innkeeper was very welcoming when we checked in. The rooms were OK (nothing special, a little dated looking, but since we spend most of our time on the mountain it's not a big deal). The walls are a little thin and the showers make a TON of noise, so you will definitely know when the guests next door are "home."
However, my biggest complaint about the Clarendon is the bed. First, there are no King beds at the Clarendon. But more importantly, the mattress in our room was one of the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on. Unfortunately, a comfortable bed after a long day of skiing is probably the most important asset a hotel/motel can offer (along with hot water!). The only way you will be able to sleep on the mattress at the Clarendon is if you drink enough alcohol to subsequently pass out for 8 hours.
Because the bed was so uncomfortable, I don't plan to stay at the Clarendon again. If the Motel buys new mattresses, I will most certainly reconsider.
