“Terrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2007

We have reserved via internet this motel,looking at the photos on did not seem badly, perhapsa different thing from the usual Super8 or Days Inn. As soon as we opened the door of the room a tremendous smell of mildew came over. The room was located on the back side of the motel and had furniture of the early 60's.
The awful smell never left us, even if we left opened the door for about 3 hours.
The small bath had just one shower that was falling from the wall and the flush toilet was working very bad with a terrible smell coming out every time the water was running.
My wife slept dressed on a sofa, because with the smell of humid that there was in the room it did not allow you to sleep.
I do not understand as they can ask 90 dollars for what they call a "room".
We had reserved for three nights but after the first sacrifice,we literally escaped losing also the money already paid, cause at the reception there was a very clear indication NO REFUND .
Our advice is that,if you have the intention to go to the motel Lake Winnipesaukee, it would be better to sleep in the car, it would be much more healthy.

Any small business owner knows that he can not provide services as suggested by this fellow, and yet remain in business. Our motel has been around for over 50 years with many returning guests each and every year. This review was bought to my attention by one of them. True, during the hottest and most humid days of summer, that particular room does seem to experience a dampness from time to time. We have provided a de-humidifier that if turned on for 30 minutes, will remove any dampness and odor whatsoever. In all fairness, we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction as each and every visit is guaranteed. We would not have it any other way! I truly wish he had bought this to our attention as we would have moved him to another room or refunded the balance of his stay. If he has issue with the smell of the water, he would be advised to contact the water department, and with the exception of the headboard, all furnishings have been updated within the past 3 years. I don't see any problems with the shower as well. I would suggest that if he has issues, take them directly to the owner as he should desire his satisfaction as well.

Thank you
