Although cleanliness is appreciated, it is also mandatory when paying for a motel room. It should not be given extra points when it is expected. That said, the springy old beds, small box TV's, weird room configuration that limits viewing of the TV from one bed, and non-working shower drive the value down down down. Two pillows per bed, none... More

Stayed 2 nights while in the area for work. I wasn't expecting much. The front desk was great! The room is clean and comfortable. The tv is old but the image is clear. The shower head should be replaced but works. They cleaned the room while we were out without us asking and had never bothered us by knocking on... More

This motel is a great value place to stay. We stayed in room 10 and couldn't fault our accommodation. The housekeeper obviously takes great pride in the job as the room was spotless and the toiletries were well displayed. After a busy day exploring the White Mountains it was pleasant to sit on the seats at the front of our... More

I would totally recommend anyone to stay at the Pleasant River Motel. The room was very clean, the rates were reasonable, and the hospitality was extremely more than anyone could expect. Both Pat and Bob were very helpful and friendly. My husband and I both ride Harleys. I requested and was given rags to wash them. Coffee was great in... More

Clean rooms (ask about the deluxe rooms, they are even better), friendly hosts. Our go-to place in Sunday River. Nothing fancy in the rooms but it has a microwave and refrigerated. The whole place inside seems to be fairly newly-renovated.

Everything was great except the bed. Room was clean, quiet, liked the fridge and micro wave. Only complaint was the bed was terrible. A nice, new comfortable matress would have made a perfect stay. Felt like the mattress was 50 years old. Lumpy and sagged in the middle.

This motel is very nice..The owner had given us good directions so we had no problem locating it.. Our rooms had everything we needed and it was clean and comfortable. Our short stay was very pleasant. We will definitely stop there again.

Clean and very inexpensive. An old-fashioned motor inn along a rural two-lane highway with flowers in front and trees around. Near the White Mountains and convenient for a road trip. WIFI. Mattress was somewhat saggy, the room was small and did not have a vent fan in the bathroom, but otherwise fine, and for the low price, I was pleased... More

The room is pretty basic and everything was very clean. It has a CRT TV with cable, bed, minifridge, microwave, baseboard heating, window shaker AC, full bathroom. The price is really good though, it cost around $55/night in spring. It's in a decent location with shorts drives to restaurants, skiing, the White Mountains and other attractions. The owners were very... More
