“NEVER AGAIN !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

I was recently there May of 2014. I had purchased a room with 2 Queen beds for a total of 2 nights. First night it was my cousin and I. The second night 2 of my good friends arrived and stayed the night. The next morning the owner was very unprofessional and embarrassed me and in front of company. Explaining that you have to pay extra for more than 2 people. Uhh....2 queens fit 2 per bed. Now I understand the owner's trying to make money but he really wasn't a very good host. Another downfall is he lives on the grounds and watches every thing you do. If you're looking to have a good time and relax. This is not the place to visit. The chicken themed room we stayed in was disgusting and right off the bat you smelled an unpleasant scent. We looked closer and realized how gross the rug was. Thanks but no thanks. NEVER AGAIN !!!!!!!

Room Tip: Any where but this place.

We like to follow up on all guest comments, favorable or otherwise. Of course there are always two sides to a story so here are my thoughts.


Several cars pulled in after midnight , voices and laugher drifted through the night air. We took notice! We do not tolerate a party atmosphere at this hour, and would normally shut it down. We made an exception this time as there were no other visitors in that wing of the motel.


The next morning it was pointed out that if additional guests stay past 10 pm , they must register and pay an additional fee. This is standard procedure anywhere, and provisions are clearly stated in the room. We did not charge him for additional guests that night.


The next morning, five people departed from the room. The reason this fellow is upset? Well … he got caught!


As stated in the past, we understand our themed rooms are not for everyone, tho we have many guests that request specific rooms when they return. Don’t care for chickens, and need a room change? No problem! We have other rooms we would have happily moved him into.


All the Motel carpets were professionally shampooed as we just re-opened for the season, the smell is from their shampoo its

refreshing but very light scent and rooms smell fresh and clean.




He stated his extra guest had sleeping bags and they were sleeping on the floor so I am sure they would have smelled it more.

I stayed t the Lake Winnipesaukee Motel for one night on Oct 15,2013. The owners Donna and Rob very very welcoming to us from the reseervations we made a month earlier to the information they gave us to the free coff in both the lobby as the room. The room was very clean and the bed was new and very comfortable. There is also a pool for the summer
The only thing missing was a small bottle of shampoo
Very close to the wonderful Hart's Turkey farm Restaurant

I confess I was very worried about staying at this motel, but I was pleasantly surprised. The size of the room was large. The bathroom and shower stall were tiny. The whole place was very clean. Its not lakefront or lake view but the lake is pretty close by. We left our pillows and the owners were nice enough to hang on to them so they could be picked up on our way back thru New Hampshire. Super nice folks running the place. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Thinking back I would describe it like this....Remember that great aunt you used to visit as a young child? Remember the smell and being curious about everything surrounding you in the guest room? For me it was a nice cozy and comfy feeling at this motel just like those visits as a child. Thanks for a great stay!

My boyfriend and I decided to take a spontaneous long weekend trip to NH in July. I told him to surprise me and pick a place to stay. Very last minute, he choose Lake Winnipesaukee Motel. The owner/manager was very pleasant and accommodating. The motel is located about 2 miles from Weirs Beach, which is great because we were able to walk down to the beach and did not have to worry about parking. I was pleasantly surprised overall with the motel! The rooms are extremely clean and well kept. There is a microwave and minifridge if you want to get some easy food to cook for lunch or breakfast. My boyfriend and I have talked about going back soon!

My husband and I wanted to travel to New England from NY and we had heard a lot about Weirs Beach so we decided to go there for a few days. It's a bit of a walk to the beach but the view of the back yard is worth it. The grounds has lots of flowers and the back overlooks the woods, a true NH feeling. The rooms are so unique, I wanted to see every room! Everything is very clean, even as they are updating rooms. The manager, Birt is out cleaning the pool every morning. Birt and his wife Linda were super friendly and helpful. One night we had the pleasure of chatting with them and another guest from NY. It was an enjoyable visit and we will definitely go back again.

We thank you for your gracious comments regarding our motel, and II know what you mean about the "New Hampshire feeling". We are so blessed to live in this area, I'm afraid that we tend to take it for granted at times. We all need to take a pause from "life" from time to time, viisit with one another, kick back and enjoy ....... cheers!

we had the pleasure of staying just one night because we were attending a concert at the Meadowbrook Pavillion just 6 minutes away. Bert was polite an eager to assist us in any way. Weirs beach is 1 minute away ... maybe 2 on a weekend. We were in room #10 at the end and would definitely come back again. well kept, clean and comfortable. It did take the hot water awile to heat up but I am patient and had no complaints at all. Thanks.

Room Tip: room # 10 is at the end of the motel. not far but nice having no one on both sides of us.

Birt and I thank you for taking the time to leave a nice response. The hot water does have to travel a way to reach those very end rooms so we appreciate your patience waiting a few minutes. It never runs cold once it gets there tho.

See you for the next concert!
