Let me preface this by saying I'm a hotelier and my standards are high but I also understand the business and that things happen.... however.... Pro's: Perfect location to the Town Square and the hockey rink (we were there for my kids tournament) you could walk right over with hockey gear or for dinner. Easy parking just across the street....

Located next to an ice rink with weekly youth tournaments, one would think they would accommodated groups of hockey families congregating harmlessly in common areas. Management was aggressively rude to the children and parents. Not family friendly in any way.

1. Advertised "continental breakfast", yet it was just coffee and muffins. 2. Wireless service NEVER worked 3. Gym hours posted as 7am, however, closed til 9am "because we don't want to disturb the room right above the gym. Then why advertise that time?? And why deprive the other guests use of the gym just for 1 room??

This hotel is obviously not fancy, and although we were really excited to see that the room had a really large bathtub, the jets in it didn't work. There was a strange window between the bathroom and the rest of the room, which may bother some people, but I thought it was funny. The food is gross, so I would... More

The Snowy Owl Inn was a terrific, kitchy, fun place. I was there for business but I hope to return for leisure sometime soon. This looks like the place that would be terrific for a romantic getaway or jsut a weekend of relaxing. Good restaurants nearby and the people in Waterville Valley are awesome.

GREAT location. Comfy but old. Staff is friendly & helpful. Easy to adjust room temp to cooler or warmer. Convenient to NH's mountain region. Fun Sports bar in Town Square. Could have used a working CD player, though.

This isn't the worst hotel I have ever stayed in but it sure isn't even close to great. We stayed here on a weekend with our dog. We were relegated to a back side room close to the front - totally get that - don't want dogs walking around the whole place. It was like the whole place got flooded... More
