“Carriage House suite - spacious and modern”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Enjoyed a week at the Eastern Slope Inn and the surrounding area. Very charming main building where you will find internet service, a game room, modern exercise facility, pool, the flatbread pizza restaurant (delicious) and a nice thrift shop. Very helpful and friendly service. A/c worked great, had a jacuzzi tub and microwave and fridge. There was also a fireplace. Really well insulated room - never heard our neighbors. The nearby train passed once in a while - really not a problem. I would recommend they change the mattress in the sofa bed though - really too flimsy and uncomfortable. There is a charge of 5 cents a minute for local calls, and after 10 minutes when using a calling card.

The area is perfect. Right on main street, and so close to hiking areas and waterfalls. Perfect place for families!

Room Tip: You won't go wrong in the Carriage House suites.

We have stayed here several times. The pool is always warm. 2 hot tubs one is outside and open all year. There is also a great wood fired pizza restaurant on the premises.
We brought some BIG white towels from home for the pool. Some how they got mixed into the hotel laundry. When notified the staff started searching the laundry at once for them. After 20 mins they found 1 for us. A week later we received the other by mail! I cannot say enough nice things about this place!

We stayed in the 'Savard' in July in the two bedroom unit on the second/third floors. The second floor houses a nice size living/dining/kitchen area with full size range, fridge, sink and microwave with deck off the back. Included on this floor is bedroom #1 with one double bed and a separate bathroom with tub/shower. The second bedroom is on the 3rd floor with a second full bath with jacuzzi tub.

Although the unit is spacious for four adults, the furniture/decor needs a serious overhaul - very dated. The double bed was uncomfortable, pillows were strangely small, carpet was worn and the drapes (no blinds) were too thin to block the parking lot street lamps from illuminating the room.

Recommendations - get rid of the drapes and invest in good light blocking shades/blinds. Switch the double bed for a queen and replace the carpet and bedroom furniture.

During our first night the air conditioning stopped working around 11 p.m. and did not kick in again until 7 the next morning although we had no issues on the second night.

It appears 'The Savard' was originally a two or three family house purchased by the resort years ago. The North Conway Train is behind the building and at 7 a.m. they were already clanging and banging out back. Also, a good bit of noise came from neighboring businesses receiving early morning deliveries - not something one wants to hear while on vacation.

The positives - perfect location right in town and easy to walk the main strip of North Conway. Great coffee shop across the street and another a few doors down. We did not use any of the amenities the Inn offered since we spent our time traveling the area. Having the full kitchen was wonderful - we never cooked however, we were able to stuff plenty of drinks and perishables in the fridge.

Would we stay again - probably not. There are other resort options in the area and living so close to NYC we would prefer a location less congested. But for those who would like to park and not drive - this may be the place for you!

Room Tip: Ask which building your room will be in and avoid anything facing the parking lots.

We (3 couples over 60 ) stayed for 3 nights at the Gibson Unit which has 3 bedrooms of various sizes and is away from the main building. This was a very hot time and all the A.C's worked very well except one unit was hidden behind a bed and took time to find in the small bedroom upstairs. This unit had everything a condo would (full kitchen, washer/dryer, dishwasher etc) but with maid service.

We would recommend this for any family or similiar size group as there was a large living room and dining areas to sit around.

Room Tip: This unit is on the second floor of the building and has a very steep stairway to get in. Overall a...

This weekend we went for another weekend at the mountains and it was my first time visiting North Conway, which I fell in love with. We were driving from Boothbay, ME and started calling places to stay in North Conway at 9:30pm not knowing this was a very busy weekend and that pretty much every place was booked! The sweet and very nice front desk girl at Eastern Slope Inn picked up the phone when we called and prompted to stay and wait for us even though she was about to leave at the end of her shift just to make sure she would save the last room of the house for us!! She also called one of the staff at the off ground property we were going to stay at to make sure they would leave the light on outside so we wouldn't walk in the dark!!! The room was amazing! extremely clean with all the utensils needed! the room made me feel like I wish i had more days to come back to it. Unfortunately we were only staying one night and the very comfortable pillows provided me with a great night sleep! The bathtub with four jets were amazing to relax the body from a day of driving! simply amazing. The next day, we left for breakfast and got on the road for our Sunday adventure forgetting to check out. We called the front desk, the same girl picked up and she promptly checked us out over the phone. I unfortunately don't remember her name but Both of the girls at the front desk and all the staff we talked to were very helpful and made our short stay stress free and very enjoyable :)

I have been to this hotel 3 times and all 3 times this facility messed up our room. The last time that my sister and i went they again got the room wrong. They put us in this dark "upgraded" room which i ended up on this pull out bed with a slant so i kept sliding off of the bed! My sister had a hole in her mattress upstairs so she kept falling into the middle of the bed. The room also didnt have A/C. In fact the whole hotel didnt have it. Very hot! For the price that you pay to stay here your better off at the Grande Hotel right at Settlers Green and you can walk to everything. The hotel needs to upgrade their things and get A/C. Wasnt impressed with the staffs attitudes.

Room Tip: The best rooms were the suites where they have 2 bathrooms and an upstairs. Still no A/C. Very hot...

NHAMSCO, Front Office Manager at Eastern Slope Inn, responded to this review, August 8, 2012
We are sorry if your recent stays with us did not turn out as you had planned. If ever a guest at our resort checks in to a room that they find less then satisfactory, we encourage them to contact our front desk team immediately so we can find accommodations that will meet their expectations.

All of the mattresses in our bedroom units throughout the property have been changed out recently to Serta Queen Pillow top mattress. From the sounds of it - it's possible that the mattress in your room was not up to our standards. We will bring this concern, as well as that of the quality of the sleep sofa to the attention of our maintenance and housekeeping management for follow up. It is possible that the room you stayed in was missed when we changed out the mattress, or may already need to be replaced. We are in the process of a major renovation project, which has already seen extensive upgrade to the kitchens, baths, carpeting and furniture in our Main Inn and Randall House units and will continue throughout the entire resort over the coming year. All of our units do already have air conditioning, which can be controlled by our guests using the control on the units themselves or by a thermostat on the wall.

As for our resort team, our apologies if you were not impressed with their attitude. Our front desk team is consistently recognized on this site as well as others for their friendly, knowledgeable personalities and willingness to help. It's our hope you will get in touch with our Hospitality Manager, Megan Scheid at 603-356-6321 ext 6403, so we can discuss your experience with us in more detail and make sure your next stay with us meets all of your expectations.

Stayed at ESI using our RCI exchange. We stayed in the carriage suites out back. Room was spacious. Kitchen a little light on dishes and utensils for a group of 8.
The deck of the room nice idea but very very small and gave us splinters.

Why did the put the whirlpool tub in the main room rather then in the bathroom? Just seemed very odd. There was plenty of room to enlarge the bathroom and put the tub in the bathroom. Wife said creaky some makes thought it was a good idea to have the tub in the main room, but any female would of told them it was a bad idea.

Disappointed that the indoor hot tub was closed for the entire week, would think they could do that work on mud season. While the ESI promotes recycling they do not provide the proper facilities in the rooms to actual do it. Management needs to get the weeds out of the gutters near the outside hot tub for the second year sitting in the hot tub and looked up to see weeds growing in the gutters not a big deal but just looks bad.

We loved the location being right in town really enhances the stay. Being able to make some meals in ou room was great and having a washer and dryer on the room was a big plus.

Flatbread restaurant was good but a little over priced.

Game room was kind of dumpy felt like the 1970s. With a little work and imagination could be a lot better.

Empty space were they used to have a coffee shop. Missed being able to get an early coffee in the hotel but just walked into town. But what a waste of empty space.

Planned kids activities were kind of limited and not very exciting. But so much to do outside the hotel.

Nightly movies a good idea, but not really promoted well and nothing special how about offering popcorn ect with the movie it would make it more fun plus a money maker for the hotel.

Loved the trails leading to the Saco river behind the hotel.

Overall we enjoyed our stay hotel needs some updating and a bit more attention to details.

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of our resort. The Carriage House Suites are among the more recent additions to our resort (along with Whitaker House, and most recently Center Chimney). IWe're sorry that the one bedroom deluxe unit you stayed in did not have enough dishes for your party. If ever you stay with us and there are either items missing or items you would like that you do not find in your unit please do not hesitate to contact our front desk team so we can get those items to you immediately.

We appreciate your comments regarding the location of the 2-person spa tub in the bedroom side of your unit. Your observations will be passed on to our senior management team to consider placing the spa tubs in the bathroom in future constructions, which is what was done on the studio side of these units.

We are in the process of many upgrades throughout the resort, one of which will include some upgrades to our game room. We have recently switched out some of the video games, repainted the room, and added a flat screen television and will be installing new carpet in the very near future.

The space formerly occupied by the coffee shop has already been rented to our Flatbread restaurant which has added more outdoor seating and will be expanding their eat in and take out services into this area by this Fall.

Your comments and oservations regarding the resort activities will be shared with our front desk team to see how we can better promote our onsite activities.

We're glad that you enjoyed the resort and the area, and thank you very much for your comments on where we could improve on our attention to the details. We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are in our area.
