On our way from Mt. Washington NH to New Brunswick, Canada, we found this place midway. Simple, clean, with the added bonus of a hot tub & outdoor pool. Just right for relaxing after a bit of a drive. Friendly staff could have been a little more knowledgeable of the local eateries, but efficient at the hotel job.

This hotel was wonderful. The spacious room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the owner was very helpful and friendly. I trusted the recommendations on TripAdvisor, but didn't know what to expect for the price. It was a pleasant surprise and I would stay here again.

The choices for hotels in this area are very limited. There are no big chain hotels, only small privately owned accommodations. This was by far the best in the area, and we did check them all out!!! The owners were very friendly and helpful on the phone when making the reservation, as well as when we checked in, and throughout... More

We stayed here for one night. The bed was SUPER COMFORTABLE and the manager was very friendly. He took a lot of pride in keeping everything so nice. The pool and hot tub as well as the grounds were impeccably clean. Would stay here again.

The rooms were clean and bright and we will definitely be staying again on our next trip through. The fire pit out back is far enough away from the motel so you don't feel that you are bothering anyone while sitting around having a few adult beverages. Again can't say enough good things about this place. A definite stop over... More
