Don't expect an updated facility. Take a step back into time and pretend you're in the 70s. The rooms were clean and spacious. The inn is roomy lots of space to wander ,areas to sit. The continental breakfast was a joke,only served stale muffins and donuts. Beautiful views from your room and from the lobby. It appeared there was only... More

I like the spacious room, nice lobby and fireplace. Great wood beams and high ceilings. Breakfast in am is only coffee, juice, donuts, and muffins that are not great. Good breakfast downstairs onsite that is of good quality and saves time to get out on slopes in morning. You have to pay for this extra - off menu. Indoor pool... More

We first came to Waterville Valley in the mid-1980s. We stayed at the Valley Inn and The Snowy Owl. I can say that almost all of this hotel has not been renovated, not remodeled, or worn items replaced in all that time. The carpet is original. What was once more of a lively place with a funky Euro alpine ski... More

This is not a 5 star hotel - but is fine for what it is - a hotel room. The hotel is a 2 minute walk to the Town Square and hockey rink which was perfect for what I needed. I don't ski but there is a bus which takes u to the ski area. I Agee with other viewers... More

After reading the reviews on here we were apprehensive about going as there were 31 of us but we couldn't of asked for more! The food was incredible, people were lovely and there was a 'ski chalet' atmosphere. The staff make you feel welcome and were polite even though we were all 17/18. Would recommend to large groups, but would... More

Stayed at the Snow Owl for one night for a brief ski get away. Place is outdated, breakfast included is coffee and donoughts. All still would have been tolerable if not for a heating unit which sounded like a jet airplane taking off... Never again until renovated.

The room was nice, the Jacuzzi tub very soothing after a hard day of skiing and the staff were friendly. The mattress sagged a tad in the center and I wish that their breakfast cafe had been open for business during the week as opposed to just on weekends.

We visited the Snowy Owl Inn last weekend as part of a group. The group leader had arranged our stay, and organized a Saturday night dinner. The first downfall was the fact that the Inn did not seem heated...at ALL!!!! We walked in out of the freezing cold temps and looked forward to a warm blast of air. Instead, we... More

This is easily one of the most comfortable hotels I have ever stayed in. My wife and I have stayed here 5-6 times (including our honeymoon) and each time has been pretty much the same. Pros: - The price is fantastic. I'm sure it's the cheapest in town. - The rooms themselves are nothing spectacular, but are nice and have... More

We stayed at The Snowy Owl for a family holiday getaway and everyone had just what they needed. Room options are varied so those with pets, those who needed a kitchen, those who needed adjoining rooms and those who needed something more private all got just what they wanted. The staff is friendly and very helpful and I was impressed... More
