No, I do not work for any travel agency or the Inn, no affiliation whatsoever. So, when I read the "Sybil" like reviews, they seem so incredibly up and down, I really questioned my purchase of a livingsocial.com coupon for two nights.
I am sure that some folks had issues at the hotel unless they were simply mean spirited. Let me tell you about the stay I and a friend had this past weekend. We first made the mistake of going to Woodwards Resort which is about 500 yards away. They pointed us in the right direction, as the same family owns both properties and Dad's Restaurant in between, and told us that we would be free to use any of their facilities during our stay including tennis courts, shuffle board etc. And, you eat in their restaurant if you have the breakfast and dinner meal plan or simply want to walk in. So far so good.
Checked in with Donna who was very pleasant, giving us brochures as we wanted to hunt for antiques one of the days. (Not much around there as it turns out) The Inn of Lincoln has the pool house set at the front of the property. We never ventured inside but it looked fine. The building is a two story with glassed front where you enter and can go to your room.
The 4 person room was so much better than I thought it would be given the reviews of some. Yes, the carpets had a few stains, but seeing I don't sleep or eat on the floor who cares. You enter the room into a living room area with TV, sofa, round table and couch. The TV is not flat screen, but we didn't go there to watch the TV. The kitchen is a galley style with microwave, fridge with icemaker, cooktop, no oven. Just perfect for us as we were not planning to try to bake or broil anything. The bathroom was incredible, jacuzzi that seats two comfortably, all new, stall shower, separate room with toilet, sink. Just perfect, lots of towels. And fully mirrored all around the jacuzzi for those that might be bashful. It was so relaxing to use the jacuzzi after a long day.
The bedroom is just fine. Gas fireplace, which we did not use since it was warm. Full-size bed which is OK for two people, tons of storage space, mirrors behind the bed (no, there was not one on the ceiling!!!), TV, beautiful view out back of the cabins.
We ate breakfast at Woodwards Resort and really were pleasantly surprised. Everything was truly homemade, the eggs were great, pancakes good and service staff really nice as you look out the back at the pond with ducks and fish, as well as flowering trees.
So maybe somebody got a bad room in the past but not us. I was told that they have continuously upgraded the property and the care, just by seeing the amount of work going on for landscaping showed me that the new ownership is working hard. I will be back next year as it is just a great place and price. By the way one exit south on rt 93 the Common Man restaurant is great food and don't miss the cheese and wine shop next to the video store. Also, White Mountain Bagels has the best coffee anywhere, it was really good.
