Quintessential New England Motel!
We stayed at the Northern Family Motel in late September, 2021 for Parent's Weekend at a nearby college. The owners are very nice and the room (#10) was SPOTLESS! Due to Covid, they can't serve breakfast, but they put Kuerigs in every room so you can wake up to a hot cup! We spent one night on the porch with nice fire pits and heaters, chatting with the owners and another guest. It was the perfect stay! We will be back! Thanks!

College vusit
The room was not in the best of condition. The bathroom door would not close, it was hitting the floor. The base board radiator cover was half off, the blanket had a hole in it. The room was small and TV was smaller. Carpet was torn. For the price i didnt expect much, but i expected better.
