Wayside Inn
We stayed in a room in the original section of the hotel. The room was dated, wallpaper peeling off the wall and the room actually had a downward slant as you walked across the room. It was really noticeable when you walked to the bathroom. The WIFI was terrible. It would go down just about every 5 minutes. My wife did say the cook to order free breakfast was very good. There was a newer addition to the inn across the parking lot that might have been a more enjoyable stay.

Great, old fashioned family run Inn.
This is a great old fashioned Inn run by a wonderful, hard working family. It's hard to find places as easy going as this any more. The breakfast is wonderful and overlooks a flower garden filled with bees and humming birds. Don't expect gigabit internet or TV in the rooms. That isn't what the White Mountains are about. And it's part of the draw for this old school Inn.

Nice place. Loved the balcony that overlooked the creek. Great breakfast served. Staff welcoming, friendly. Still some updates to go on room but new wood-look floor appealing. You can see the care put into the inn.

Staff Great, stay just ok.
This is an inn on a main road in Bethlehem. A few miles from the town proper where there seems to be some nightlife, a good brewery and some shops. The inn is dated, but there is charm to that. My daughter and I slept in twin beds. We wished we brought our own pillows. The walls are thin and we heard our neighbors laughing into the night. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was to order and though basic was a nice plus. Overall this was a little better than ok, rustic. I give it a B based on the people who were really kind.

Value and river views
Great value! We keep coming back and this time there are two more reasons. We stayed in the Annex with a soothing river sounds and off course views from our balcony. Having a gluten allergy, they accommodated this beautifully. So much so that I encouraged them to get listed on Find Me Gluten-free. We cooled down in the river, which was very refreshing.
