“Would stay again”
Reviewed July 27, 2010

Great.......place to stay. From the moment we checked in until check out our experience was fabulous. The rooms are older fixtures with new CLEAN beds. Modestly decorated, but very, very clean. Friendly staff in the office.
We were floored to see that the river runs behind the motel! These people put picnic tables, chairs and barbeque stands along the river. Take the wooden steps behind the motel to the most awe striking views.
My family and I would stay there over and over. It is close to the Kangamangus Highway, Clarks Trading Post, Cannon Mountain and Woodstock.
If you are looking for value, cleanliness,convenience...THIS is the place to stay

The motel has rooms & cottages; we had a one bedroomed cottage with parking right outside. The weather was very, very humid at the time which may have explained why we didn't sleep brilliantly (the interior is all wood-lined so it did feel rather warm and the air conditioning unit was very noisy). We were expecting one bed in the bedroom, and a rollaway bed in the sitting room, but in fact there were two beds which was much more satisfactory. The cottage had a porch which had a fly screen all around it, although ours was broken in places so did let in some unwelcome visitors. However, it was very pleasant to be sitting out on the porch with a nice, cold beer (the fridge was brilliantly efficient!). A goody bag was waiting for us which had a variety of travel sized products which came in useful. The cottage didn't have a hairdryer in it, but I was able to borrow one from Reception the whole duration of the stay. The area is great, and I'd recommed a stay here - the young lady on reception was very friendly & helpful.

We found this motel last minute. We were not sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. If you are looking for a clean, quiet and lovely place to say you can not go wrong here. The front desk staff were cheerful and helpful. Although we didn't use the picnic tables by the river, we could see they would be a great place to have a summer cookout and river swim. I am definitely going back. The website to me dose not do it justice.

After a hectic trip to NY, we were little skeptical to drive that far to an unknown place. We finally decided to give it a try and boy....what a pleasant surprise we had!!! This motel is almost next door to the famous gorge and so many other fun filled attractions.
The room we had was big, clean and airy with all the amenities that one may need in such a place to have a relaxing, quiet time in the mountains. The beds were comfortable.The rear window opens to a surprise..."The Pemi" that passes thru the backyard so close you can hear the it in the room. That alone is a reason I want to come back again next year!! The picnic tables and BBQs along the bank are a wonderful change to have your leisure breakfast/lunch. The sound of the flowing water thru open window is a melodious soothing lullaby, works like a charm. We stayed at # 8 but # 12 is closer to the river, it’s a corner room.
Convenient eateries’ like Sunny Day Diner, Brittany’s cafe, Woodward's steak house are within reach after a long day at trails and mountains.
Its true this place may not have all the frills and embellishments like other expensive places, BUT IF YOU’RE LOOING FOR A CONVENIENT, ECONOMICAL, YET SQUEAKY CLEAN AND FRIENDLY ACCOMMODATION, ITS JUST RIGHT FOR YOU.

I thought this would be a cute motel to go to for a weekend with the family and i must say the price was very fair. we stayed in one of the cottages but it did need alot of updating which you could see from the inside and also the outside!my downfalls where we where told it would have a queen and a double bed which it only had 2double then i was also told that it had a shower and tub but it only had a shower, and also the faucets in the bathroom where both leaking.besides that it did have a nice river in the back with picnic tables and the staff lady was very nice and the place was cleaned everyday!it would be nicer also if they had something for children like a playscape to keep the children occupied!

The bedroom and living room needs renovations but other than the air conditioner being loud, everything else was fine. The room was maliciously clean and the service was impeccable as well.
Extremely nice and helpful staff. It would be nice to have wireless internet available in the rooms. River adds a nice touch even though it was only viewable from our bathroom.
The bathroom was recently done and was very clean. The toilet did not work very well but the staff came and fixed it right away.
I would stay here again and the price is hard to beat.

We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Franconia Notch Motel. The price could not be beat - $59 on Thursday and $64 on Friday and Saturday nights. The inn keeper was welcoming and helpful. We loved our view - just feet from the a roaring river - the rush of the water made for great sleeping! The king bed was very comfortable and the room was so clean. We had a little fridge and rooms with 2 beds also have microwaves. The shower was hot and had good water pressure. We stayed in room 7 which is a cool little room. Despite being one of the smallest rooms we liked it because it is off a little hallway (the door does not open directly to the parking area), was so quiet - we didn't hear any sounds from other guests or their TVs, and is in the corner so you have 3 windows total. We spent our days touring The Flume, Lost River, and exploring the top of Cannon Mt. via the Tram ride to the top. All of these were just minutes from the motel. We would definitely stay there again. It is an older hotel (which you can see in the wall paper, counter...) but the linens were in great condition and it was cleaner than many newer hotels I've stayed in. The owners are clearly invested in their hotel. Also it was one of the only hotels in the area completely booked up for the 4th of July. With everyone having to watch their budgets more carefully this hidden jewel might fill up fast so I'd recommend calling ahead.
