We booked this in June and didn't check Tripadvisor beforehand. When we did go online and read the reviews we figured it couldn't be that bad and by that time other places were booked. Well it was worse than we imagined. It is so rundown and the common areas are beyond shabby. The lysol smell in the room and the... More

Stayed at the Beacon years ago when it had an excellent reputation. Although the staff wasn't overly friendly, the rooms were nice. Stayed again last year and the entire place is run-down and unfortunately the staff still isn't any friendlier. Next time I want to stay in the area (probably once every year) I will look for a different place.... More

The food here was atrocious!! Overcooked, the green beans definitely came out of a can, and the mashed potatoes were somehow dry. Overpriced. The best part of the whole meal was the bread which we had to ask for...twice. Skip this place for dinner!!

We stayed here from July 17 to July 19, 2013. I used a half off coupon from Halfoffnh.com. They had Jacuzzi rooms available so I decide to spend the extra for the Jacuzzi tub as I had spine surgery and it was only $10 more than a regular priced room. Check in was good and no problems. Friendly person at... More

The were a few good things about the place, room was good sized, great location, front desk folks were nice. Most of the common indoor areas had a funny smell. The hallway in our building hadn't been vacuumed or cleaned in a while. Rug in hall to ice machine (way far from our room) was soaking wet! Tried to use... More

We go every year up to the White Mountains and stay at the Beacon. This time was no different, we had a fantastic time!!!! The Beacon is very family oriented, having 4 children that is a plus! We are never dissapointed, and this year the rooms were updated and beautiful. The inside pool also was updated and looked beautiful. We... More
