We arrived around 1 and checkin was at 2. They were gracious and accommodating to let us check in and gave us rooms that were connecting, there were 9 of us. The rooms are in need of some updating and better cleaning but overall we really didn't spend much time in the room. The pools were very clean indoor and... More

I have been visiting the Beacon since I was a kid. I am 38 years old and have enjoyed going back with my children and my parents for a nostalgic stay. My most recent stay was cut short due to a work related commitment and in the rush of leaving, I left my entire computer bag in my room. I... More

I have been staying at the Beacon for over 20 years. Dollar for dollar, it is the best value in the White Mountains. The pool/Jacuzzi area is very accommodating and the entertainment hall is enormous. I would recommend the meal plan, as the food is very good. The the Beacon is not is the Ritz any means; if you are... More

I stayed at The Beacon Resort because I got a groupon and wanted to take the kids swimming during school vacation. The room was very old with a queen and double bed. The bathroom was disgusting. The tv was nice and the wifi worked well. The indoor pool was nice, but the hot tub was pretty cold. The game room... More

My husband and I live in Central NH and purchased a "Half off NH" gift certificate to stay at this hotel this past weekend. Neither of us had ever been there before nor did we search for any reviews of it prior to going. I agree with many of the posters here that many of the amenities of the property... More

Just spent this past weekend there with my sister for a one-night special. The per person rate was $65 per person and with taxes and restaurant gratuities added it came to $145. This allowed us to order ANY item from the dinner and the breakfast menus. We are not people of great finance to go off like this often, so... More

I stayed at The Beacon with family in a cabin a couple years back. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. I really enjoyed how the cabin had a screened in porch, it was nice sitting there on a cool summer night listening to the rain. This hotel is a favorite for the bus loads of the wiser folks, so I...

This place is a classic. Right on RT3 NH. Great if you have children and wish to see things in the Summer time. They do have little private cabins you can rent, out of the Resort part. I feel they need updating, they are a bit rustic. You may wish to bring a candle to burn, again, in need of... More

My daughter and I stayed here for an event. The Beacon was almost sold out do to an annual event which they do many of. The staff is beyond friendly. Our room was spacious with two double beds, free WiFi, lots of hot water to shower. Coffee maker and refrigerator also provided. The event room was well appointed and the... More
