We stayed at the Beacon with our young son in June and were very disappointed. The "old" Beacon was a great family resort with great food and friendly, helpful staff. Sure, it needed some upgrading, but the atmosphere and comfort made up for that. Now the new ownership seems to have lost any interest in keeping the old customers and... More

On behalf of the Beacon Resort, we wish to extend our apologies for not providing the accommodations that you were expecting. The new owners of the property have taken on a complete renovation project to include the updating of every room (carpets, furniture, mattress, flat screen tv, fresh paint, etc.), paving the parking lot, poolside updating, grounds improvements, etc. in...

The Beacon has recently been taken over by a lovely young family who are welcoming and kind. They are working very hard to get an old run down hotel up and in good order. All the staff were so nice. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to vacation in NH; it was clean, comfortable and close to the... More

We were visiting from Canada going to Whales tales waterpark with our 2 small children and needed a place to stay. The Beacon was just up the street and looked appealing from the outside. When we found out that it had a park for children and an indoor pool that included a continental breakfast, it was a no brainier for... More

We went to Beacon Resort for 2 night in July 2015. It was very enjoyable getaway. Resort feels very refreshing and comfortable after extencive renovation. Rooms are very clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. It is very close to Franconia Notch park. Spending there a couple days is a great retreat! If you have kids – just go there! Kids...

Great updates. We have been going here for 19 yrs and almost went some where else this year bc the last was so bad. We were very happy to see the renovations since the last owners. Clean, updated and friendly staff.

My family went to NH for April vacation after scoring a $50 Groupon. The hotel was clean but very dated. The pool smelled of strong chlorine and was very hot. The hot tub was large. There were steam rooms in the bathroom. There was a free breakfast included. It was ok. We basically slept there. There were loud kids in... More

I chose to stay at this place with friends because of the low rates it offered (lower than their competitors), the free breakfast, and closeness to Franchonia Ridge trails. I was very happy with the stay until I identified a series of overcharges on my credit card. I'm in the process of disputing these charges through the credit card company.... More

When I stayed here years ago it was quaint, yet rustic and clean. Sadly this time that was not the case. The restaurant, Dad's, has closed. If you have a room on the lower level you can hear every step above you. Our room was a newly renovated one which was nice, but no closet or place to hang clothes.... More

Stayed in room 166 which was just renovated. Fresh paint, bedding, carpeting etc. Had a typical free breakfast which satisfied us just fine. Nice pools and play area for the kids. They are still in the process of renovations so it will only get better.
