The "wicket awesome" experience started right from my first call with Leslie. She was able to get us in to room 1 on such short notice. We had previously booked another motel BUT then heard such bad things about it that I freaked out. Leslie was great through the whole booking process and taking the deposit by phone, I appreciate the friendliness and her wanting to help.
CHECK IN - in was very easy, we arrived a litle early and we were able to check in. Leslie was there to greet us! That was so fantastic! Check in was easy as the office was right there and there was just the balance charge that was due.
It was a short walk to the unit (by the way the pictures of the rooms on the website are EXACT). Please note - when you first check in to any hotel/motel it's different from your personal home - always remember that and don't use your home as a standard when traveling.
THE ROOM (1) - was very "New Hampshire", it has a lot of pine paneling - had not seen that in some time...made me have very pleasant memories of my grandmother's house in Bartlett. It also has a kitchenette - 2 burner stove, microwave, sink, dishes, glasses, cups, utensils and salt and pepper too. Everything you would need to cook and eat a meal! There was a table with three chairs - the table has a leaf to make it bigger.
The bathroom was VERY...I repeat...VERY clean (as was the entire room). It's a small space but everything was in perfect working order. Someone in a past review mentioned the shower being small - it was s standard size...no problems at all. There is shelving and a medicine cabinet - plenty of room for stuff. Did I mention how clean the bathroom was?
The beds were an adjustment, a little firmer than I have at home. Nothing bad about them at all. Clean lines and sheets (but awful bedspreeds that we took off the beds). Pillows were good too. Thankfully there was an air conditioning unit - that made a pleasant sleeping experince during a heat wave.
There's a beautiful pool as well as the Saco River right behind the motel. We saw several other guests enjoying both. If you have kids they have videos, swingsets and so much for them to do. The kids looked like they were having so much fun in the pool.
One thing I need to comment on is the charm, it was a very charming place - lots of lush flowers everywhere and a well maintained lawn. You can tell someone really cares!
LOCATION - Will's Inn is located right on Route 302 near gas stations in Glen as well as a short ride to Jackson/Intervale/North Conway or the hiking trails of the Crawford Notch or Kancamangus Highway. You just can't beet the location!
Overall - I rate this as an extremely wonderful stay. I had a wonderful time staying here!
