Hillwinds Lodge is exactly what it says it is: clean, comfortable, friendly and affordable. We were warm and snug in our room there during wintry temperatures. We enjoyed breakfast looking over the Gale River, eating out at the Franconia Inn, seeing the places that inspired Robert Frost's poems and the woodland trails behind the lodge.
We enjoyed every aspect of our stay.
Real nice room Big parking lot Friendly people working at the lodge
Talking about Autumn/Fall this place is at the edge of civilization (sould not be negative for the Lodge)
It was very clean - excellent location - once I found it. Very accommodating with free long distance and breakfast included.
The directions from Mapquest were not very good - but stopped in town and received directions. Very simple once you knew where to go.
Good location for accessing the area, near to but not right by the highway. Warm room. Helpful friendly staff.
View of the river
the actual setting on a stream in pretty.
the rooms are dated and could use a redecoration to reflect the decade of 2010's not 1970's.
Room was clean. The view of the river directly in front was lovely. Breakfast was good although there weren't enough tables for everyone and it was too cold to sit outside. The owner recommended a very good restaurant.
The bed was hard and I woke with a stiff back. The wifi did not work all the time. There were no decent restaurants in town.
There wasnt anything i didnt like
Food in am
Location, the owners were very helpful and friendly. Beautiful spot.
Air conditioners were loud - and really should not have been used, the rooms were correct temperature. Could hear neighbours snoring. More fruit for breakfast instead of pastries would be great.
Delightful situation, restaurant short drive away. Iron/board applied on request.
No hairdryer in room, hauling suitcases upstairs.
Stairways could be a problem. Bathroom small.
friendly, good breakfast selection, nice pool. Liked the fireplace outside.
The location is great.
The mattresses were hard and should be replaced. Otherwise the rooms were nice.
After traveling the 'Kanc' the motel was in a good location. Not many places close by to eat dinner. Had to go 7 miles up the road to a good Rest/Brewery.
Very friendly staff. Quiet location. Very pretty and well maintained grounds.very good value.
Rooms a bit dated.
I loved the layout. We actually went for a walk on a beautiful trail behind the hotel. The place was very nice and comfy and the owners were very friendly.
Breakfast area was just ok. Nothing special.
Friendly welcome, lovely setting, comfortable room
kept awake by other musical guests in room below-they were singing and playing guitars until early hours of the morning
Helpfull staff, location was ideal for our travel needs, room was clean and comfortable. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Sink counter needs to be replaced/repaired. Certainly not a drawback.
We often stay in more affordable places when travelling in the White Mtns and were very surprised at the overall quality of Hillswind related to other places of comparable price. Very cute, clean and friendly staff. Will definitely visit again.
The bed was quite firm, and the location was a little remote.
Management was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, comfortable and as expected for the price point. Plentiful parking (although parking lot was not paved) and rooms were away from traffic. Quiet. Prices were very reasonable. Nice little river fronting the motel.
Not located in an area with many choices for dining. Neeed to travel 7-8 miles for a variety of dinner options. Stayed near the end of August and the pool was covered. Weather was warm enough to swim if pool had been opened. Somewhat off-putting to find out that another business shared the office area with the motel business. Continental breakfast had very minimal food choices. Would recommend asking for river front room.
Noisy at night from neighbors . Bad smell Very old furniture Basic breakfast
Loved the dog friendly room. It was clean and neat (no signs, that there had been other dogs in that room, no smell or stains). It was quaint and is a great location to Franconia Notch State park (3mi away) and about an hour to Mt. Washington. There is a nice trail behind the lodge from hiking and walking your dog. We plan on visiting the lodge again in the future.
We did not like the ghetto people that stayed there our first night. There were kids running up and down our front door. The parents were just as loud. We almost left. Thank goodness, they left the next day. How rude. C'mon people, have some consideration for others. Control your kids and your tone of voice when in public. Stupid, inconsiderate people almost ruined our trip.
Beautifully located, easy to find and far enough from highway to be quiet. First impression - amazing.
Air in the room wasn't breathable. Remnants of smoke and pets odors covered with soap and air freshener. Right outside the rooms they have chairs and ashtrays for smokers; smoke goes right into the room. If we've got there earlier than 10PM we wouldn't have stayed. Spend the night with a big fan directed at the window, trying to push the odor out of the room. Woken up with red eyes, not rested at all.
Very Quiet Area and Things to do are near by or just a few miles away.
