Positive Reviews

Great riverside location

Former guests were typically thrilled with the Franconia Notch Motel's location. As well as being conveniently positioned for exploring nearby attractions in Lincoln, the motel's location next to the Pemigewasset River also helps to apparently create a tranquil, scenic setting.

Warm and helpful staff

The supposedly warm and polite attitude of the staff members was commended by many previous visitors that stayed at the motel. In addition, the motel's personnel were considered to be really helpful and understanding when faced with questions and requests.

Clean and comfy rooms

Although they have been described as inconsistently updated and featuring certain unfashionable fixtures, the rooms at the Franconia Notch Motel were applauded for the most part by past guests. Most found the rooms to be clean, well-equipped and comfortable.

Negative Reviews

Showers can be an issue

The showers in the private bathrooms have been a regular source of grievance for past visitors to the Franconia Notch Motel. From a lack of hot water to limited pressure, various shower-related problems have been reported about the accommodation.

Breakfast option not available

The omission of any form of breakfast - although coffee is served in the morning - was an understandable issue for numerous previous guests. Nearby restaurants and on-site cooking facilities are available, however, to reportedly lessen this negative to a small extent.

No-thrills with few facilities

If you want a fully-equipped accommodation choice in Lincoln that offers an array of recreational facilities, the Franconia Notch Motel is far from an ideal choice - a sentiment shared by former visitors. In particular, the lack of a swimming pool or spa area has proven to be a disappointment at times.
