We only stayed for one night, however it was clear what a great place this is just from the one night. The owners were super helpful and even upgraded our room to give us a little more room as we had our 1.5 year old with us. The property has a swimming pool and hot tub although unfortunately we didn't...

Excellent motel in Bethel. Clean, comfortable, super friendly owners. Nice wooded area outside for the dog to play. Well set back from the road and quiet. Our go-to place to stay in Bethel. Bethel is a great little town. Lots of restaurants.

On main highway but very quiet. Plenty of parking. Good location. Several styles of rooms. VERY clean both inside & out. No meals included until June. Hot tub, swimming pool, creek, woods and lots of space. Room was large and comfortable. Usual amenities except coffee maker. Couple who own the inn are very cordial. Whole area, including room, is well...

Stayed for a ski weekend. New owners were great. Chris even drove us to the bar when the shuttle didn't come as scheduled. Great place to stay on close to Sunday river and downtown bethel. Breakfast is homemade to order.

A friend recommended The Rostay. We had previously stayed slope-side at the Jordan and that was fine but pricey. If you don't mind a short drive and more of a motel/B&B atmosphere at half the price, The Rostay is a great option. This is not a ritzy place, but it is cozy and comfortable and the owners and staff are...

Stayed there three nights in Feb 2017 while skiing at Sunday River. The room was cozy and adequately sized. The breakfast (included in our room rate) was very good and the service was quick and friendly. The motel is located about 10 minutes (drive) to Sunday River ski resort. There is also a shuttle to the mountain, which runs every...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Rostay for a weekend and it was absolutely wonderful. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. We stayed during a huge snow storm and one of the owners helped us shovel out in the morning to be able to get to Sunday River (which is only an 8 minute drive!). They also served...

When I made reservations to stay here during a Sunday river wedding, I was promised coffee and a full breakfast. Upon arrival, I was told that was all unavailable ( they could have called in the month following my reservation). They. said I could find another place to stay (my friends had dropped me off in the car, no public...

We stayed for an extended weekend skiing in Sunday River. The inn was located 7-8 minutes from the resort. The room was nice, but the real pleasure was the hospitality from the hosts. Efficient and friendly at check in and serving coffee, hot chocolate and cookies in the common room when we came back from skiing was really great. They...

The home made quilt was a nice touch in a clean room that was essentially straight out of the 70's. While there was wireless internet, there was also a working vcr in the room in addition to a fridge and microwave. I absolutely loved my stay here. The only downside was due to it being in the slow season, there...
