For it's location, this hotel potential to be great but wow, what a dump. The facility itself is in desperate need of repairs and updates. Broken fireplaces, broken hot tub. Indoor pool is freezing. Guest rooms have worn carpeting and furnishings. Bed mattresses were old, big deep valleys in the mattress and horribly uncomfortable. Bed linens were nubby and worn.... More

This hotel is VERY dated. The rooms have not been updated since the 70s, including the paper thin sheets and towels. Everything in the room looked old and the smell was a combo or mildew and urine. The heat in the room was some sort of wall unit that was so loud we had to shut it off to sleep.... More

A lot of the reviews here seem to be hit or miss; people love the Snowy Owl or are disappointed in it. That might reflect more a mix of expectations on behalf of visitors than inconsistency or shortcomings at the inn. This isn't some high-end quaint New England inn. Neither is it a 5-star hotel. It is convenient, clean, affordable... More

The Snowy Owl Inn met all standards for our stay. All employees were friendly and helpful and the inns lobbies were very warm and comfortable. Although the rooms were slightly outdated it did the trick for the stay. The location was very convenient for hockey tournaments were we were able to walk to the ice arena. The Snowy Owl Inn...

This place has so much potential. I want to start by saying I loved the front desk staff. So nice and fun to chat with. No problems here. The room was extremely dated. The rug was worn and stained. The blinds had broken slats. The tub jets looked yucky. The TV was very old and had a terrible picture. The... More

The ins has an event listed as the Christmas tree get away weekend. Included in the price is the room for two nights, wine and... More

One of the worst hotel experiences I have ever had! Because: TV did not work. Changed rooms and sofa bed was unusable. Toilets were backing up. Lights that did not work. False advertisement with pool since the hot tubs have not been operable for over one year but still shown on website. Mattresses old and caved in. Hairdryer missing from... More

This hotel is in desperate need of renovations and has many things wrong with it, beginning with charging more than $180 night for terrible accommodations. The toilet kept backing up, the bed was extremely uncomfortable, our tv didn't work and the pull-out sofa mattress literally tipped beneath the couch itself. We were told the wifi wasn't working during our stay,... More

The Snowy Owl Inn is in a beautiful location, and there is so much for a family to do anytime of year. However, the property has become dated and in need of renovations. Our room had dust all over the lamps, a lamp with a bulb hanging by a wire, and a couch with what looked to be a cigarette... More

The place is old. Smells of old carpets. The so called continental breakfast is nothing but muffins, donuts, juice and coffee. Mind you, this is $160/night Inn... lights weren't working in our corridor first two nights. One lamp was broken in our room. Free wifi doesn't work most of the time
