Stayed for one night on the way back from out east. The whole hotel has a funny smell, the scent of overdone room deodorizer that it hurt my nostrils. It was the same for our room and the windows don't open that we had the fan blasting to air out our room. The breakfast was sufficient.
We stayed here for 2 nights during the Mass/Vt/Maine vacation week. It went well. It was a family of 4 and a dog in a dog-friendly room on the first floor. The location is great - within walking distance of the Franconia village and right next to an I-93 exit. The room and the public areas of the hotel were clean. The COVID-19 compliant breakfast was a bit thin but understandable given the current restraints. There were apples, bananas, muffins, yogurt, juices, and coffee. We felt the price was a bit high, given the location and star rating, but we understood that the rates were a bit higher because of school vacation week. The staff was attentive and the only small issue was that the fridge seemed to run very cold and froze some of our food, even on the warmest setting. Also, the room could use a little bit more table surface area.…
I took my sons hiking in the area and this hotel is in a great location, in Franconia and near Bethlehem & Littleton. The boys appreciated the pool & I appreciated that it was in the middle of the action and had all the expected hotel types of amenities including a continental breakfast.
To start…… This Place is a Joke. From the time you pull off the freeway, and start up the hill, into the parking lot, I thought I was going to need to take my car in for a front end alignment. The Outside looks like it could have been remodeled, if you like VINAL SIDING!! (Good Grief) Then I entered the establishment. The one desk person was hiding behind the COVID Plexiglas, and I checked in. This rundown, outdated shitbox of a Hotel is a complete joke and I am shocked that Best Western would even want to claim this property. The Entire place is as it was when it was built as far as the bathrooms are concerned. I’ve seen LOW SITTING TOILETS before, but I have not seen crappers these low in a LOOONNNGGG TIME!!! The Almond colored Tub/Shower is as clean as it can get from all the worn in discoloration over the past 60 years. Without getting into details about the entire bathroom, UPDATE THEM if you plan on charging the outrageous prices that you are for these rooms. Today is June 24th, 2022, C’mon, SUMMER IS HEAR…. BUT, there is NOTHING in the town of Franconia, NH. One Bar & Grill is all there is for anyone to eat at for the evening meal. We had to travel 7 miles to the town of Littleton, NH, just to find an assortment of establishments to get an evening meal. NO OTHER MOTELS in this town WERE OPEN! On Saturday, 6/25/22, there is supposed to be a Triathlon, A “Race the Cog” up White Mountain, and this is all that this town has to offer??? One Bar and Grill and an Overpriced Outdated Motel???? Seriously….. $185.52 including tax??? When I checked out, I asked for a receipt, and the person took forever to do that and looked at me like, Really?? SO IN SHORT BEST WESTERN!!! Get rid of this OUTDATED dump, or STOP CHARGING OUTRAGES PRICES FOR AN OVER RATED SHITBOX, NO PLACE TO GO LOCALLY FOR ANYTHING, MOTEL!!! …
Hotel is clean. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Breakfast bar is good serving waffles and pancakes. Indoor pool is heated and clean. Fitness room is good. No issues. Good value. Good location. Bed are comfortable and clean. Hi speed Wi-FI
Our check in was a little strange, came in @ 5:30pm and no one at the front desk - we had to call for someone. We stayed on the 1st floor just around the corner from the front desk which was fine - very quiet, we weren’t disturbed. Only ice machine is downstairs by gym/pool/vending which was a little inconvenient. The room was worn and needs a lot of updating- cleanliness was okay - refrigerator had been turned off and smelled really bad. Bathroom had some mold but towels were plentiful and clean. Beds were clean and comfortable. View from the room was pretty! We didn’t use the indoor pool, but it looked really nice. Breakfast was also good! Pancake & waffle maker, scrambled eggs & hash browns. This hotel could really use a more welcoming lobby that reflects the style of the area, maybe a gas fire pit with chairs outside and updating the rooms.…
Great place to stay for a White Mountains visit. Right up the road from Cannon Mountain with nice views from the hotel. Rooms are comfortable and clean, staff is great and friendly. Definitely a good place to stay for your White Mountains visit!
Hotel was clean, convenient, and staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location for a central base of operations in Franconia to explore the region. Some small elements of the hotel could use a little TLC such as noisy appliances and squeaky floors, but otherwise an extremely pleasant and comfortable stay.
Nice place to stay for a White Mountains visit. Right there for skiing at Cannon which you have views of from the hotel. The hotel is well maintained, clean and quiet. The staff is friendly, helpful and efficient.
Only needed to stay one night to wait out the weather and it was absolutely perfect! Definitely would stay here again. Made the reservation at 11am and went right over to see if we could check in and sure enough we could! The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great and the staff was super nice!
