“Great choice for quick trip with the family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We were here July 19 for one night and it went great. The hotel and the rooms is certainly slightly dated, but we are not picky. The breakfast was great for our family and there were plenty of choices and the food was good. The indoor pool was a great temperature, I always get annoyed when hotels keep their pools not warm enough for kids, and we spent a good few hours each day there. I liked the outdoor mini golf, nice playground and the s'mores and lemonade were a great before bed activity. The staff was all very pleasant. One thing is the only microwave is in the game room, which is not open 24/7. My kids drink warm milk so this could have been an issue if they woke up early. But otherwise we would stay here again for such a great price and the many amenities

We stayed July 11 - 13 for a mini family vacation. We were taking our 3 yo to the Day with Thomas event, but wanted to make a mini vacation out of it. Fox Ridge to the rescue! We booked here because of the reviews, and it definitely exceeded our expectations in a lot of ways! They have tons of great activities free and available: mini golf, Frisbee golf, playground, indoor and outdoor pool, shuffle board! They also had ceramics, roasting marshmallows, movie night, and horse drawn carriage rides. Its great that you can use the facilities at mountain view too, but we weren't there long enough to need to.

The free buffet breakfast was AWESOME. I was just expecting a typical bagel and danish spread, but there was eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, cereals... it was great. My son looooved it, and I loved being able to start the day with a free hearty breakfast.

We originally booked a garden view room, but quickly realized the mountain view rooms are where its at. On the second morning of our stay we asked to switch and they promptly took care of it. Mountain view rooms are definitely recommended! We had a ground floor and it was great we could walk right out to the pool!

There was a wedding going on during our stay, and even though our room was right next to it you wouldn't have even known. They do a great job of keeping it family friendly.

The only draw back is that the rooms are a little outdated decor wise. But honestly, i don't care much about that - but that's why i went 4 instead of 5.

All in all it was fantastic and we will be back! :)

Room Tip: Definitely go mountain view rooms, it makes a huge difference.. the patio rooms are nice because you...

Your stay was filled with fun activities between the horse rides and both indoor and outdoor pools." AWESOME" breakfast made our chef Crystal smile. The mountain views here are some of the best in the Mount Washington Valley. Hope to see you before winter hits.

We had a very nice stay at the Fox Ridge Resort. It was our first time. My 3 year old son loved the pools, and the mini golf and the playground. We loved that breakfast was included and it was just enough variety to please everyone. The staff was unbelievably friendly! Which to me rates high in my book. The rooms....a little dated, and needed a vacuum if you look under the beds (we found some leftover sunflower seeds from the previous guests) and the alcove room was perfect for our privacy needs! Wished it had a balcony but next time I know and will reserve a different room.

Room Tip: The Alcove rooms do not have balconies

Your first visit to Fox Ridge sounded like a great time. Thank you for commenting on our "unbelievably friendly staff" The balcony mountain view rooms are the way to go and it seems you had fun with all the activities going on here. We look forward to having you back.

It was my sons birthday and we brought him and his 3 year old daughter. The rooms was dated but comfortable, they still used actual keys. The room had a great view of pool and mountains and had a porch outside the room with 3 chairs and lounge chair. Our room had two doubles and a alcove room with 2 twin beds with a folding door. It had a small fridge, good for drinks and plenty of towels. The activities were great, hayrides, pops by the pool, after 4pm, a campfire at 8pm w marshmellows. There was plenty of open space to to run around for the little one. I found the staff pleasant but not really listening to what we had to say. The cons were the free breakfast was awful, bad coffee and very crowded in the dining room. When we arrived, there was a open bottle of soda on the table which I brought down to the front desk and was told that housekeeping would be notified. Thought a little bit of discount should have been applied to our room. We went out for the day and got back at 4:30 and our room had not even been cleaned but they did bring us new towels. Wish the place had a small convience store where you could buy things instead of vending machines that were out of order.

Room Tip: The rooms w the alcove gives a family a little breathing room and the mountain view is good

Your birthday celebration sounded like a good time with the outdoor pool and the beautiful mountain views. The horse drawn wagon rides are so much fun going all around the property. I apologize for the busy breakfast, the Storyland rush lasts for about one hour and then things are back to normal.
Thank you,

We stayed here for 2 nights when we visited Story Land. It is in a very convenient location, easy to get to Story Land and various restaurants. The staff we encountered were very friendly and the breakfast buffet was more than adequate and nice to have when we wanted to get out to Story Land in a hurry. The room size was adequate though the rooms could use updating, particularly the bedding. We used the outdoor pool twice and that was really nice to have on site. My daughter complained about the number of bugs. It wasn't so bad to keep her from swimming but it did seem like it could have used a cleaning. Additionally, one morning when we went down there were no clean towels available. The biggest surprise was the maid service we had one day. I think they only gave us clean towels and quickly made the bed. I am assuming that the sheets were not changed, which is fine since it had only been one day, but the bed was extremely sloppy. My daughter's blanket was just left in a pile on the bed. Typically when we stay at hotels the maids fold it neatly on the bed. Also, there were numerous crumbs on the floor so obviously there was no vaccuming. These factors were not bad enough to keep us from returning but we just wanted to point out that we thought the maid service could use a huge improvement. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Storyland is such a great treat for the children it's something they will always remember. Your comments about our very friendly staff was a big hit with the team here. Your daughters blanket should of been neatly folded on the beds and those issues have been addressed with our housekeeping team.
Thank you again,

I have been coming to the Foxrige in North Conway for many years (15-20)

It is always a great stay with friendly staff and clean facility.The outside pool area has always been clean and presentable. Very resent upgrades to the chairs and outside bar have made the pool area that mush more desirable. The staff is always friendly and willing to help make the stay that much better by offering help at all times.

I recommend it to all my friends and family.

My older sons has great memories of this place and soon my youngest (2) will also have those great memories.

Room Tip: Mountain View - close to the outdoor pool and great view of White Mountains.

This hotel is not really a resort. The carpet in the hall needs updating or at least cleaning. The locks in the doors are very old (most hotels use electronic keys these days). The sink is outside the bathroom, and there is no hook for towels. We even didn't get new bar soaps after first night, Hot breakfast is OK (scrambled eggs, beacon, sausages, home fries) but is the same every day. You can get discount tickets for indoor water park ($20 instead of $40). However the indoor water park is relatively small (2 tube slides, 2 body slides, water basketball, wave pool, hot tub, and children play area), so it should not cost more than $20. It is also not warm enough in indoor water park, Hotel provides a free shuttle to water park and back, and we were told that we would not wait for shuttle at all. However we had to wait for a shuttle for almost 30 minutes. We were told that there was a traffic on the road (the whole trip is about 5 minutes, and there was no real traffic on the road). Parking is very inconvenient since it is far form the hotel. The hotel also charged us additional $10 a day above the price we paid online,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I'm surprised the breakfast buffet only got an "OK" from you., Our guests rave about the complimentary buffet and how much is there. The Water Park is 40,000 square feet and the water temperature is always 82 degrees. Unfortunately we have no control over the traffic in North Conway on Holiday weekends. Best of luck with your future travels.
