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.

The food was plain , but well prepared. It was a great place for our group to meet. There are paths... More

I have been holding my scrapbooking retreats at Snowy Owl Inn for about 4 years now and absolutely love this tradition. The Inn is always welcoming to us and makes our stay comfortable and fun. It is such a relaxing atmosphere and Steve and staff are super nice folks to work with. It's a good place to hold an event... More

GREAT location. Comfy but old. Staff is friendly & helpful. Easy to adjust room temp to cooler or warmer. Convenient to NH's mountain region. Fun Sports bar in Town Square. Could have used a working CD player, though.

We made a reservation for Snowy Owl Inn, a king room, using the hotel website. We went there in a beautiful autumn weekend. It was an off season date but for this long weekend White Mountains region was really crowded. The hotel was a beautiful surprise. It has a very warm atmosphere and I can’t wait being there after a... More

This isn't the worst hotel I have ever stayed in but it sure isn't even close to great. We stayed here on a weekend with our dog. We were relegated to a back side room close to the front - totally get that - don't want dogs walking around the whole place. It was like the whole place got flooded... More

Location was scenic and well kept. The hotel was clean and neat. Only complaint was the continental breakfast. It only offered individually wrapped donuts and muffins with mediocre coffee and warm OJ. other than this the stay was quite nice and the shopping center directly next door was really nice and enjoyable.

Beautifully located in the White Mountains, friendly and accommodating staff, & nice rooms. I would stay here again. The only part that needed improvement was the beds were firmer than we are used to, but it was not a deterrent for a return.
