I would have preferred to give this motel four out of five: it was clean, very comfortable with friendly, helpful owners and a decent breakfast. The rate we paid was very reasonable for a Friday night in the ski season; we expected a no-frills place and that's exactly what this little motel is. One thing we did expect and didn't get, however, was hot water! Our morning shower was cold and, as we were heading for the slopes we didn't want to hang around to wait for the heating to be fixed. Maybe we should have asked for a refund but we didn't - the snow hasn't been kind to business owners in this corner of New England and we did enjoy a good sleep and were well fed before a day's skiing. Would we stay here again? Yes, we probably would, despite the lack of hot water, as it met our requirements in every other way.
