Scores of fours can be given to motels under 100.00. They may need a bit of paint or an extra lamp to read by but if they are clean and easy to reach they get my vote and recommendation. Try the morning breakfast for 8.00. Delicious French toast and juice and coffee were offered on their selection, just enough for...

We had a really outstanding stay at this quaint inn. We were in town for a wedding. Made reservations online and this inn did not disappoint. At the wedding, we found out that the bride and groom were spending their wedding night there, too. What better recommendation do you need than to have local folks staying at this inn for...

This is a real find. The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly, and the room was clean and well maintained. Our vehicle decided to stop working just as we were arriving and the helfulness of the proprietor finding someone to address the issue was outstanding... you just can't find this hospitality anymore!

Thanks Bill for your kind words! We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I know how stressful it can be when unscheduled interruptions like a malfunctioning car, alter your weekend plans. One of the things I love about Bethel is how other businesses will go above and beyond to help a fellow person. Gaudreaus Auto Service worked on your...

A quintessential New England inn, the Rostay is located right in town with quick access to the best ski slopes and snowmobile trails around. The innkeepers – Kathy & Al – truly understand the meaning of hospitality, and make every effort to ensure your visit with them is comfortable and convenient. Setting this place apart from the rest in the...

Very observant Loves To Travel, we did move the furniture around a bit. Guests suggested that they would like to face the TV instead of having to turn a bit so we took them up on their suggestion!

This is a great place to stay in the Behtel area -- close to town and to Sunday River. The rooms are clean and cozy. Shuttle service to town and to Sunday River is frequent and convenient.

The Inn is easy to get too, clean with friendly owners. Shuttle to the ski slops are coming every 30 minutes and the breakfast is out of this world. Rooms are clean. Breakfast has nice varieties for adults and kids. Close to dinning places at night. Highly recommended

We stayed in one of the largest rooms (bunk bed and two queens), four of us. The room was comfortable and spacious enough; clean. Decent wifi service. Very close to Bethel center, and close to Sunday River. Breakfast is not included, and a bit pricey ($8 per person); for a similar price, you can drive 300 yards to the Crossroads...
