... was full of sunny vistas and a setting sun. We arrived at Jackson Lodge just before sundown and booked into our room which is the nicest we've stayed in - it has it's own balcony overlooking the White Mountains. Just enough time for us to grab a drink and some ice before bed!

Historical Traveler Reviews Colonial Motel North Conway
One of North Conway's Best secrets...
This was our third trip as a family to North Conway. The first two
trips, back in 2001 & 2002, we stayed on the green, with an indoor pool etc...thinking this was everything.
Over the last (3) years I have been using Trip Advisor religiously for advise and it has worked out great. This years trip, to satisfy my youngest request to visit the two parks in the mountains, I again relyed on trip advisor to compete against my previous choices. The advise, once again, proved to be right on the money.
The Colonial Motel was as good as any accomodations I have used for my family in the northeast. Clean is what I expect and is exactly what we recevied. The owners were very helpful and right on the money with their tips for breakfast & dinner. Quite, 20+ rooms, we had the family suite. Located in the back facing the pool and mountains. Very nice. I normally like hotels with room service. However, I will always choose this type of family place over the other for my family every time.
We made last minute reservations at The Colonial based on tripadvisor reviews. The hotel looks a little old fashioned on the outside, but is completely clean and updated on the inside. The owner was very friendly. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was updated and clean. This place isn't fancy, but you get good value if you're looking for basic lodging at a fair price.
We loved it!
We have stayed in a few hotels in the North Conway area and the Colonial Motel is by the far the best we have experienced. It's a family-run place and they are VERY helpful with making sure you are comfortable and can suggest restaurants, playgrounds, and kids activities. The motel fairly small with about 20 or so rooms, so make sure you book in advance. We called about a week before our trip and was able to book a room with 2 Queen beds.
The room was very clean and what you would expect for ammenities in the price range we were paying. Some of the furniture does look a little dated, but that doesn't detract from the comfort of the place.
We would not hesitate to recommend this to our friends and definitely will be returning next year.
We booked in for a night and decided to stay another. My 3 kids were having a great time and my wife just couldn't get over the value and views. Our plans didn't quite work out the second day but we had agreat time anyway. A big part of this was the Colonial. Spacious clean room with a fridge.(good for a travelling family) Nice outdoor pool. Everything is nearby...village and mountains one way, outlet shopping the other. In my brief conversation with the owners Jerry and Michelle, I found them very hospitable and intent on making our stay a good one.
We will make sure this is a stop on our next family vacation tour next summer.
We stayed for 3 nights with our young son and couldn't have been happier with our time there. It's in a great location on the main strip in North Conway, halfway between the town centre and the outlets. Despite being on rt 16, the hotel is set far enough back from the road that noise is not an issue. The rooms were on the large side, and very clean. We were in a room with two queens and had plenty of space to set up a pack 'n play for our son to sleep in.
The Colonial Hotel is just a great spot with wonderful hospitality by the owners Jerry and Michelle. They went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. We'll definitely be back, maybe in the winter for some skiing.
This motel is conveniently located between downtown North Conway and the outlet stores. The owner was extra helpful and took the iniative to provide us with brochures, coupons, and driving directions. The room was very clean.
We have just returned from a weekend in Conway, NH at the Colonial Motel. The website does not do the hotel justice! It is the cleanest and friendliest place I have visited in a long time!
The hotel is run by a great family with adorable kids and doggies that all greet you in the office. The wife remembered my name straight away which was a nice touch, and the husband helped us with directions, gave us discounts for restaurants,lent us his own wine key, and invited us for homemade cookies and s'mores by the fire for the following evening. Exceptional service without being pushy.
We booked a romance package which was very moderately priced for valentines day weekend!!! There was a rose on the king bed, and the room was warm and cozy. There is a fridge in the room, but no hairdryer- im sure one is available at the front desk. There also was a goody bag with stuff like lip balm, lotion, gum, etc which was great! Again, the room was spotless and kept spotless every day. We will definitely return!
We had a 'suite' (actually two adjoining rooms) for our family of six. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. Very friendly couple who own the place. Got discount tickets for Cranmore....BIG savings when all are skiing ($11 off an adult daily pass). Would definitely stay again.
Less is more
We were treated like kings at this small but lovely motel with a backyard view of the White Mts. Run by the Hopkins family, who are ever so helpful and friendly, the rooms are all renovated , the beds excellent, and the service wonderful. We even got a Jeep tour of the Mt Washingron area!
What a gem!!!
The first inkling I had that this place was a gem came when I phoned for reservations. Michelle took the call and was very friendly and helpful. We arrived and were at once delighted. It is a family-run motel as clean as a whistle. The room we had was charming in it's decor but best of all was the fact that there were several lights in the room (often missing in chain hotels). It was a very comfortable, homey place. The family who run it are terrific.
