The Snowy Owl is right in town and perfectly comfortable, but it is certainly not an Inn. It has a long corridor of rooms. The nice looking "parlor" in the lobby is not a nice place to relax, as it is always full of people coming and going. There are some small common parlors along the corridors, but they are... More

If I could give this zero stars, I would. I'll start by saying that I stayed at the same hockey tournament the weekend of 1/9/2015 as some other people who have already posted. I paid a premium to get the Fireside Suite so that our Team could gather together and have fun. The decor is extremely outdated, clearly the furniture... More

We stayed at the Snowy Owl for a hockey tournament this past weekend. The ONLY good thing I can say about it is that it was nice to be so close to the rink. Otherwise, if you are looking to stay with your hockey team – DO NOT STAY HERE! From the moment we walked in the door, we were... More

We stayed there this past weekend for a hockey tournament. The security guard thought that this was his audition in becoming a state trooper, the front desk thought that they could make fun of people and talk down to guests. The rooms were not clean, there was not one flat screen tv and the breakfast was overpriced. The rules are... More

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.
