First the pros: - Reservations: very easy to make. And the owner was nice enough to let my group cancel our first reservation without penalty when the weather conditions made our weekend a no-go. - Location: if you are looking to get outdoors in the North Conway or Gorham area, or if you are an AT through hiker, then the...

We booked a hotel through Expedia for a weekend away in New Hampshire. It was very hard to find a room because this weekend was to be the peak weekend for the fall foliage. We drove 8 hours in the rain only to discover that we didn't have a reservation! The clerk at the hotel said Expedia never gave them...

I would give serious thought before staying here. The beds are old, the comforters stained and dirty, the room smelled of smoke and mold, and the empty condom wrapper under the bed was more than we bargined for. We didn't stay the night.

We have never stayed here but usually vacation in the area 2 times a year. Our trip to Gorham would never be complete without breakfast at the Colonial Fort Inn. The food is great and the company is even better. Bruno makes the best pancakes and breakfast sandwiches and the accompanying conversation with his wife Mary Ann adds the spice....

You have to try they cuttages; and they have free fast wireless internet service!. The whole setup is coming out of a facinating Stephen King Movie. For those who like to be budget friendly and see opportunities everywhere, this is your place. Located at intersection of the Highway 2 and 16 buildings sits on a few acres lot. The place...

They charged us $98 and didn't even have a box of kleenex in the room. Cheap everything and I mean everything. Beds were horrible, shower barely worked, and the towels were paper thin. I would never stay at this place again..I would sleep in my car first. The office is very dirty and so is the kitchen that they cook...

Just as Jeramie P wrote about his stay in July, I experienced the same in September 2012. The room was very dirty, but that was the least of my concerns when I pulled back the covers of the bed and saw black pubic hairs on the sheet and a large fluid stain in the middle of it. It was the...
