Two days in wilderness

Posted 23-Mar-2015
Pros: Not much
Cons: Primarily the personality of the owner and the communication skills of the staff.
Location: The motel is located above the river in West Lebanon, NH.
When we checked in, the gentleman at the front counter was incomprehensible. When we checked out, the owner accused us of having a dog in the room. While we had a dog with us, she remained in our car at all times. The owner claimed to have entered the room while we were not there and saw a dog bed. Absolute lie. Because of recent injuries, I had brought an anti-gravity chair to sleep in (which I had difficulty fitting into the tiny room). Perhaps the owner thought the chair was a dog bed, but since the chair opens to over six feet she must have thought I had a giant dog. Overall, it was not a pleasant experience staying at this motel.

Older, family-run motel in a scenic country settin

Posted 23-Mar-2015
Pros: Quiet, scenic location on the bank of the Connecticut River. Affordable price. Decent breakfast.
Location: The motel is in a rural location, a short distance south of Hanover, NH, home of Dartmouth College. Ask for a room with a river view.
We arrived at a very late hour. The owner was nevertheless ready to receive us. The accommodations are very basic "retro motel" style.

Great for a short stay

It was clean and no-frills. You get what your pay for. We just needed a room for one night and it was perfect.

Have been here before--will be back

Posted 12-Mar-2015
Pros: Clean rooms; lots of desk space; hot water and good pressure; adequate towels for two adults; FAST net access; rates.
Cons: Hard pillows; sink drain needed work
Location: King Arthur Flour; Lebanon Pet Center (like a free zoo!) Close to Dartmouth Medical Center; scenic drives all around
Have stayed here before both for pleasure (motorcycle trip) and for personal (hospital stop overs) and each time the Mgmt is friendly and helpful; clean rooms; quiet area; equipped for study or work with large desk and lamp base outlets; iron and board; hair dryer; enough towels for two (lots of higher end places barely have A towel) FAST Net access; close to shops and Dartmouth-Hitchcock etc. We were set for a different area of the hotel but discovered the door step was too high for a handicapped person to easily get into room and changing rooms was NO problem. The hotel prob dates from the 50's or 60's but has been taken care of and has new furniture and carpeting etc. We will stay there again I am sure! (We have stayed in a number of different and more spendy hotel/motels in this area and this is the best of the bunch-at one high end one we were told that kids were NOT welcome --after checking in with two that they KNEW were with us!!!---and even tho they were NOT making any noise we were on notice!) So==we will be back at the SUNSET the next time we need to be in Hanover!

It was decent

Posted 20-Feb-2015
The TV only had 5 channels (room 4) which was explained to me because of the weather. I can hear the person and the noise next to me and people scrapping the roof early on the morning.

Does the job

Posted 16-Jan-2015
At first glance, with the snow surrounding, it seemed like the Sunset Motor Inn had seen better days. However, once I entered my room I was pleased. The heat worked well, the bed was a little hard, yet, comfortable and the motel was quiet. It was a great place to stay while visiting Dartmouth College.

Excellent Value

Posted 11-Jan-2015
A family-run motel located halfway between Hanover and West Leb. A small-ish but very clean and comfortable room...they even upgraded me to a "Kingsize" bed at no extra charge. As the motel is set back from the main road, it is also VERY quiet, which I appreciated. Discovered quite a nice view of the Connecticut River from my window in the morning, as well as a super nice continental breakfast in the reception room. Just wish I had made enough time to use the Belgian Waffle maker! A great value, and a friendly manager.

Great price 15 mins from DHMC

Posted 09-Jan-2015
Cons: Vacuum all the way into the corners and edges of the room
Nice comfortable room with fridge and microwave. Small but efficient bathroom. Comfortable bed and pillows. Great TV with Direct TV set up. All in all a pleasant stay.

what a gem

Posted 20-Dec-2014 on Hotels.com
Quiant older hotel. Very nice folks running it. Nice at check in and also nice at breakfast. Breakfast was simple and enough. Room was clean. Dated but nice. View was wonderful. Right on the river. Most rooms are on the water. Very well priced for the area. Will stay again.

Clean and quiet

Posted 07-Dec-2014 on Hotels.com
Room was updated and very clean. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was one of the best I've had for small, independently operated hotels. Buildings are older but in good repair. Heat was plentiful as was hot water. Bathroom is small but well laid out and all amenities were provided.
