Absolutely ABSOLUTELY loved our stay at Adventure Suites!!!! (this is long but well worth the read)
RESERVATIONS: VERY easy to book on their website online. They include packages etc.. could also have called. They are very helpful.
LOCATION: Excellent location. Right on Rte 16 in North Conway. Not far from downtown shopping.
BUILDING: The exterior looks like a typical quaint New England town. Done to perfection! I absolutely love it! (I had seen it transformed from what it was previously and they have done an OUTSTANDING job!).
LOBBY/HOTEL: The lobby is a perfect Victorian replica! The tiled floor is gorgeous. The details are fantastic. Since it is right before Christmas it was decorated beautifully!!!! We plan on staying right before Christmas again next year just because it was so very festive!!! We played pool as well and had a blast. Even had help from the 'First Lady' (the resident cat) who laid on the sofa next to it! The 50s diner setup for breakfast is a lot of fun! A great way to start the day. Outside of each room is decor that befits the room. It makes it fun and interesting to walk down the hall. Someone else mentioned the lobby was small... I have NO idea what they are talking about. It is big and there is even a huge fireplace!
ROOMS: We stayed in 'the Cave' and 'Show Time'. Got to see the Penthouse, Motorcycle Madness, the Log Cabin and a peek at the Jungle.
The CAVE: We booked 2 nights for the Cave room. It truly is a cave! Fantastic atmosphere - loved the cd they had in the player - made it even more 'realistic'. The waterfall shower was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd stay in that room again JUST for that!!! It was neat with the tunnels - kids would love it! They even had a PS2 in one of them. Plus 'windows' aka cave holes to look out of. The decor in the room was great. A couple of sort of 'silly' things like a t-rex and 'halloween bat' (but again.. kids probably love that stuff and there were only 2 small ones by the door). The sculpted bats on the stalactites were fantastic!!! The fireplace is awesome (love the bone in front of it!). The hot tub was nice and VERY clean! The entire place was very clean!!! The king size bed was very comfy. LOVED the heated floors!!! The doors to the bathroom/shower were simply beautiful (over 100 years old!). The furntiture was a bit odd (all 'hand's... LOL.. but definitely funky!)
SHOW TIME: We took a tour of some of the rooms after our first night and immediately asked if we could switch to Show Time. NOT because we didn't like the Cave but because it was a totally different room! Your own 10 foot screen theatre set up! The windows are the shape of Mickey Mouse. The bistro style table is in the shape of Mickey Mouse. Full fridge and a real popcorn maker (they supply the popcorn). Awesome bright red heart-shaped jacuzzi in the 'projection room'. You can watch the big screen ANYWHERE in the room (never watched TV while taking a shower before!). We watched 'War of the Worlds' as one of our movies (which are all free to borrow). We had seen this movie in the theatres and also at home.. but NEVER experienced it like in Show Time!!! My mouth DROPPED when we could 'feel' the bass. Absolutely fantastic experience!!! The furniture is sooooo very comfortable!!! King size bed again.. very comfortable!!! This room has a deck outside and view of the mountain. Awesome views. There is a gas fireplace in the tiled wall... definitely heats of the room nicely (besides looking nice). Double shower heads in the shower as well.. so definitely nicer than a 'normal' shower experience (although... the waterfall in the Cave is the end all be all for showers.. lol).
PENTHOUSE: Beautiful room. They really did a great job re-creating a NYC Penthouse - very chic and professional - black granite floors and even a mini-putting green! Gorgeous jacuzzi overlooking the mountain. Full kitchen in this room. Also french doors leading out to a deck and views of the mountain.
MOTORCYCLE MADNESS: What a crazy Harley room!!! Very large room. Poker table (and you can borrow chips and cards). HUGE sunken 7 person hot tub!!! (we want to stay in this room once just for the hot tub! HA) Bar with Harley bar stools. The shower head is like the one from a Seinfeld episode (the elephant showerhead). I can't wait to try this out also!
JUNGLE ROOM: I just got a quick peek but the hot tub/jacuzzi looks really cool! This room also has a mountain view and a very cool looking round bed! They even had two wooden elephants in the grass outside of the room (very large sculptures!).
STAFF: ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! Very helpful, very informative! Everyone was sooo very nice. I cannot say enough about them! They helped make our stay even better!
DIDN'T LIKE: One thing I didn't like was that there were no 'hotel locks' on the doors. The kind that swing over so that when you are in the room you have that 'extra' feeling of protection. The doors just all had normal locks on them. I don't know if there is a reason for this or not but I would have preferred to have that swing lock (I probably watch too many horror/psycho movies!).
We WILL be staying here again and again and again. There are 16 rooms right now and they will be creating even more. I LOVE that we can book different rooms during our stay as well.
And how could I forget 'Scrappy' - the resident dog that is an absolute blast to play with!!! Such a good girl!!!!!! I looked forward to seeing Scrappy and the First Lady each day!
These aren't the greatest photos but I wanted to post some... I'll take better ones next time! (I normally do not take photos of the hotels/resorts that I stay in!)
