My husband and I and two adult sons spent a night at the Econo Lodge in West Ossipee, NH while visiting family in the area. We were going to be very busy and would only be at the hotel to sleep, so our requirements were simple--it needed to be clean, quiet, pleasant and easy to find. We were very pleased with the Econo Lodge. The hotel is newly remodeled, simple and tasteful, and located at the intersection of two main routes, on the way to North Conway and the ski areas. It was very easy to find and is across the street from a convenience store/gas station. (We are talking about a VERY, VERY rural area of New Hampshire so a store and gas are important! =). There are also other conveniences - a pizza place and other restaurants, and a couple other places we didn't check out. The hotel owner, Mr. Patel, was very friendly and helpful, and we had fun talking about his heritage (Indian) as my husband spent 3 years in Nepal in the Peace Corps. Our two rooms were fine-- very clean, with a king bed in one and two queens in the other. Both rooms had a fridge and a microwave, TV, and very clean bathrooms.
There was a fitness room with equipment but we didn't have time to use it. There is also a laundry room. I didn't look for an outdoor pool, but there might be one.
We came in very late, after midnight, and that wasn't a problem.
Breakfast was simple but good--toast, bagels, a waffle-maker, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt,juice, coffee and tea. The view from the breakfast room is great!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through, visiting friends or family in the area, or for folks planning to use the hotel as a base for hiking, biking or skiing. It's not what you would choose if you want the hotel itself to provide a lot of entertainment, or if you want the hotel to be elegant or historic. We were very happy--the price was very reasonable--and I will definitely go back for another stay next time we are in the area.
