The sun was going down when we arrived in Littleton and we did not want to attempt driving the Kancamagus Highway at night. We pulled in and the gentleman was kind enough to show us the room. While the room had a musty smell at first it soon disappeared when the windows were opened. By the time we had finished checking in the office was filling up with other travelers seeking a room at the inn.
This is a mom and pop operation, not a chain, and reminded me of the type of roadside motels I would stay in when driving across the USA in the early 1960's before amenities became a key word. The type you might have found along Rt. 66 (if your old enough to remember Rt. 66). The room had two double beds (we were 3 adults), a small color TV (no not flat screen), a small round table with chairs (great as we played Scotch Bridge) and all the other basics for a good night sleep. The beds were fairly comfortable and the bathroom (although dated) was clean. They do have an outside swimming pool but it looked closed for the season.
The owner indicated coffee/tea would be available in the morning in the office lobby and it was. (Green Mountain Coffee). It was available by 7 a.m. . She was also helpful in giving us directions to the downtown area and places we could eat. By the time we got back from dinner the place was full and the no vacancy sign was up.
The price was the best around. Had checked prices and availability of other places on my smartphone and they were at least double. IF YOU WANT A GOOD NIGHT SLEEP AND DON'T NEED TOBE PAMPERED THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY.
