This is our 2nd year staying at the Briarcliff Motel. We like it because of its cleanliness and great pool. The staff are so accommodating. The rooms with porches make the room feel huge. We stayed in 9 and 11 and liked both views. The AC works great if you need it and the pool is perfect for the end... More

We came to North Conway to take the kids on the Saco river tube ride! We had a great time. This motel was very clean. The pool was very refreshing. We even got to pick some apples in the back. The front desk clerks were very nice. We will certainly be back and next time we will stay longer!

For the money, good hotel. Clean and in great location. Peaceful - far enough from main road. Bed comfy and good bathroom. Plus good pool that was well maintained. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Ask for a room with screened in porch!

Looks great from the road. Rooms are somewhat updated. Beds were a little older. Friendly owners, we were tested very nice at check in. The room smelled a little bit like smoke. But it was a fair deal for a Saturday night in peak vacation season.

clean, nice pool yet far from rooms, beds uncomfortable. Side rooms small and depressing asked for back room with screened balcony and was much more pleasant with views. It's not the Ritz but good value if you are just going to sleep. The pool was the cleanest I've seen at any hotel in the Conway area.

This was a great little motel. The rooms were clean and we really didn't have any issues. The wifi wasn't the best and on one side of the bed my husband's iPad would spool when he was trying to watch a video. But it still worked and it was included for free so you can't complain too much.
