Small hotel--owners live upstairs. Lots of deferred maintenance. Landscaping used to be nice apparently but even grass cutting was left undone. Owners were on vacation. Temporary managing couple did not know enough to manage well. They said the owners were trying to sell the motel. Beds were the worst we have ever encountered and we have been together 52 years. Insects in bathroom. Breakfast coffee machine empty. Have heard that hunters like to stay at this motel--it is quite cheap for the area and perhaps it is priced well for what it offers. But we would not go back under any circumstances.

Convenient Location

Pros: Convenient to Dartmouth College.
The view of the river in the morning was beautiful with a fresh four inches of snow. The parking lot was plowed so no problem getting the car out. Room was clean and comfortable.

Good value, great location

Pros: Bed linens, proximity to Dartmouth, river view. Included breakfast.
Cons: The towels could be fluffier and the bathrooms are small.
Location: Any Dartmouth or Upper Valley oriented activity.

Excellent value for the money

This motel, about 15 minutes south of the Dartmouth campus, is not pretentious but it is clean and well-run, and even has nice water views nearby (it's a dam-formed lake, not accessible from the motel). I didn't sample the breakfast. I'd be happy to stay here again when I'm visiting.

Inexpensive quiet stay

Not the cleanest but for the price, a good night to sleep. We would probably pay more and stay somewhere a little nicer but this isn't bad.

Nice veiw of the river.

When we drove up the place was empty. But online there was only one room available. The beds are old and very uncomfortable. Not enough blankets. And the pillows were flat, glad we brought our own. This Inn would be great if they did some upgrades. If looking for an over night stay this is your place.

Not like it used to be

The owner was rude. He never thanked us for our patronage. He seemed annoyed that he had to take the two minutes to check us in.
