This inn on a quiet side street in the heart of North Conway has hit upon what may be the perfect formula for families. It starts with two-room suites with a queen in one room and a pullout couch in the other so parents and kids each have a little privacy. Each suite also has a kitchenette and dining table to save costs on eating out. And the property itself has an outdoor pool, hot tub and sauna for the grown-ups, and a game room for the kids with old-school video arcade games, pool table, Ping-Pong table and slide for the little ones.
The dÃ©cor is a bit dated in places, but the rooms are clean and the innkeepers are friendly. The quiet forested location is a short walk to the shops of North Conway Village and the outlet stores. Mount Cranmore ski resort is visible from some of the units; it’s an easy five-minute drive up the street. For ski bums, the inn offers packages to the resort and lockers for storing skis.

My husband booked us a room for two nights for the first weekend of Massachusetts school vacation. Here are the issues...
1. Parking lot gets very tight when there's snow. Cars were parked in what should have been a fire lane at any other location. It was a tight squeeze if you had your car parked in the back side of the lot. If a larger SUV or truck was parked on the back side, they wouldn't be able to get out.
2. First impression when I got into the room was that it was very dirty. Large stain on the floor and very dated. Only clean area was the bathroom as it looked recently updated.
3. We were to have two double beds. We had a murphy bed and a sleep sofa. Thankfully we brought an air mattress so I didn't have to let my kids sleep on a dirty sleep sofa. The air mattress was originally intended so the kids could have their own beds.
4. No extra sheets or blankets so even if wanted to use the sleep sofa, we couldn't. Thank goodness that I was prepared with sheets
5. No plugs near the bed so we couldn't charge our phones overnight and have them next to us when the alarm went off. (not a big deal but still inconvenient)
6. Internet was free and it's because it's horrible. We couldn't get any good service.
7. And the worst part... Our room was next to the function hall/dining room. There was a party going on until 11pm for the first night. It was so loud, it felt like you were in the room with the party. And a few times, there was major feedback from the microphone which just made it worse. We asked the front desk around 9:45 when it would end and we were told the party would be over at 10... no such luck.
The only positive was that check in was easy...
I will make sure to never stay there again. One of the worst hotel experience that I've ever had.

Hotel and room not as shown in photos: noisy (could hear neighbors voices clearly, cramped, no space, no nice wood-panelling, etc., very dirty, beds were a murphy and a sofa sleeper. When both open no room to mover, had to crawl over beds to get to bathroom. We had to get sheets from desk and make up beds ourselves; however, desk seldom manned, actually had to search around for a maid to pickup sheets and towels, since too few of them as well. When we checked out I saw they were overcharging for our 3 day stay by approximately 200%. The desk person assured me that the manager would credit our credit card; however was not done. This was for our stay August 2018, now 10/20/2018. We are still disputing this with credit card. No breakfast, continental or otherwise-which was promised. Had to purchase an extension cord and adapter to connect lamp--few outlets and one was defective. Internet did not work, no cell service. Concert noise from up at the ski area one night(even with windows closed. Forced to travel quite a ways to find any services, food, gas, shops... Way overpriced, even without their overcharges. One of the worst experiences and places, I have ever stayed in, and I have traveled for 45 years all over the world and in all states approx.
70% of my life. I grew up in NH, but this hotel makes me almost ashamed of my native state.
