Last week when we headed north, we needed an overnight stop in Littleton, NH. We usually stay at the Hampton, but it is ‘in season‘ and the rates are $200+. When we pull off the interstate for one night and only want a clean bed and shower, that seemed a little over priced.
So, I did some shopping, and found the Littleton Motel, which is heralded as ‘the oldest motel in NH’ – built in 1948. At first I chuckled, and then in looking at the reviews we decided it might be fun to take a trip down memory lane.
When we pulled up and saw this cute little porch with two doors, my husband and I had to smile and think of years ago when this was the definition of a motel.
When we walked inside, we again smiled at the knotty pine paneling, checkout time notice, and the door key, all of which we haven’t seen in many years. But, what was most important was the fact that it was immaculate. I don’t know when I’ve stayed in a room that was cleaner.
There were two additional doors – the closet on the left and the bathroom on the right.
Clean room, nostalgic decorating, Dunkin Donuts next door, Littleton Diner across the street, and we could walk to Schilling Beer Company for a beer, salad and some pretzel bread. Nice.
This is one cute motel, centrally located, and with tax was a little under $100 a night.
Clean, good deal, craft beer, Riverwalk Covered Bridge, and a trip down memory lane – can’t beat that combination. 🍺
