I love that this is not your typical city-type Marriott. The host is very friendly and accommodating and the view is awesome. Indoor heated pool with a view, fireplace, WiFi. It's unique enough without being weird.

The location of this motel is great if you're a skier, and worked well for me, since I was going to a wedding nearby, and the price was very reasonable. Tim, the owner, was friendly and helpful. The room had a nice TV, coffee maker (even some decent coffee), microwave, iron, etc. Free, good WiFi and sufficient outlets. Unfortunately, the room was unpleasant in a number of ways. It was right off the indoor pool, and I'd guess some people would be uncomfortable with the chemical smell. The shower, sink, mirrors (see all black marks in picture below), baseboards, carpets, etc., etc., were grimy, rusty, and more. The clothes "rack" was falling apart, the walls were dented from a previous different-sized bed. The lighting was poor (which probably reduced how much the grime was noticed. So, for me, it gets 5 for equipment and a 1 for condition. Very functional, but not very nice.

Room tip: See if there are rooms away from the indoor pool.

Thank you very much Andrew for your review. We appreciate your comments and constructive feedback and took immediate action on the things you noted. I personally, along with our Head Housekeeper and Maintenance person, read your review as we walked through the room and were also dismayed by some of the conditions you noted. The baseboard heater photographed was beyond in need of "cleaning" and has been replaced. Same for the mirror. Many of the items you mention were able to be corrected that same day, but highlighted for us our need to focus on some of the more basic elements of our product. While we get caught up in trying to keep up with the "amenities" (Thank you for nice comments on the coffee, WIFI, TV's) it seems we failed miserably on the basics of ensuring a clean, decent looking room. And for that, myself and the staff are truly sorry. But we are appreciative of you bringing these issues to light and would hope you would give us a try again in the future.

the motel is just at the bottom of the slopes so it's perfect in that sense. the place is clean and well maintained. We arrived , we were the only ones in the motel, our room on the ground floor ,so it was super quiet . By the time we left , we had guests above our room and we could hear everything...all the way to the squeaking of the box spring. Everything was ok for us up until that moment , especially when the small kids started to run around.
So overall it was what to expect from a motel, just make sure you are on the first floor !

Room tip: first floor to not hear gusts above you.

Thank you for your comments Nathalie. We are glad you found the Motel clean and well maintained, and we are sure the staff will appreciate hearing those positive comments. We are truly sorry you were disturbed by the guests above your room. Unfortunately, the weekend was quite busy and we had no option to move you (or other guests) around. We hope we have the chance to host you again and will be certain to arrange your accommodations in the most quiet room possible. Thanks again. We always appreciate hearing comments to help us improve.

i needed a place to stay since i was going to attend a wedding a Pat's Peak so i went on line and read the reviews for the Henniker Motel, some were good some not so good. while it's in a perfect location and the gentleman that runs the motel is just the nicest and accommodating guy however, that's about all i can say positive. it's an old hotel that needs a lot and i mean a lot of updating. my room said non smoking however, it still had the smell of old smoke and the carpets looked like the same ones that were there when they built the place many years ago. anyway, the place needs lots of TLC and i'm sure it will happen, it's just not happened yet.

Room tip: if you don't mind the smell of old smoke and a little mold this is the motel for you.

We were looking for a place close to Pats Peak for a weekend of skiing with our 8 and 6 year old girls. This place was right across the street and fit our needs nicely. Rooms were very basic (which is fine) and we were able to park our car right outside our room. Owner Tim was so friendly and accommodating. The pool was very nice after a long day of skiing. The fireplace room with huge TV was nice. Rooms had direct TV and small microwave and fridge. For the price, this place fit the bill perfectly. This is a small, locally run New Hampshire motel.

Room tip: The rooms on the first floor have parking spaces right outside the door. Nice when you have kids and ski gear.

Thanks you so very much for your review. It is wonderful to hear you enjoyed our stay and you so accurately described us. A friendly little place, in small town New Hampshire is what we strive to be and I'm so glad we were able to deliver. Look forward to having you and your family back again next ski season.
