“Great place to stay for family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

everything was close (restaurants, shops, ice rink, athletic club), and we didn't need to use our car at all. The rooms and kitchen were big enough and clean enough. We really had a good time there. Only down side was their check-out time was really early... (has to check-out by 10am, if you want to check-out later than 10am, you have to pay $20/hour)

It's good to have your feedback - thank you! We also think the shuttle service and the ability to just leave your car parked during your vacation is one of the great features of Waterville Valley Resort. Next time you stay with us, ask our front desk if we can extend your check-out time. We can't always do so, but we love to accommodate that request when possible, without charging any fee. We hope you'll return again soon!

Sincerely,
April

We went here on a summer weekend with a large group from church, beating out the heatwave in Boston. We got a discounted rate, which made the stay more reasonable. The resort itself is very cute, our first time staying in a ski resort like this, so have nothing to compare it to - however it seemed to be a community within itself. I loved all the activities available, the various cute shops and mini-eateries (i.e., sandwich shop, ice cream shop, etc.) on site.

As for accommodations, the suites that we stayed in seemed to have a full kitchenette (i.e., plates, dishwasher and soap, etc), about 2 rooms with queen size beds, and acouple rooms with bunk beds or twin beds, with at least 2 or 3 bathrooms in each suite. NOTE: not all rooms have equipped with AC!! we learned this the hard way, when we noticed our friends room was nice and cool, and then walked into our suite, and it was hot - and only provided with fans. It was really miserable for the people that had to bunk on the top floor of our suite.

Our rooms were all in the "Town Square" making it convenient to get to all the activities (e.g., ice rink, paddle boats, etc), however, bc our room had no AC and we had to open the windows - it made it VERY loud in the room when they had live country bands playing outside all day.

I could see this as a fun vacation for families.

FYI - they also DONT have a nurse on staff, so when someone in our group wanted someone to check out an ear pain she had - they had to call the local ambulance to come. The local ER is also 20+ minutes away. There also didnt seemed to be as much supervision as you'd think (e.g., dont think there was a lifeguard on duty at the pool or the beach area).

Room Tip: make sure you specify if you can, that you'd like a room with AC

Waterville Valley is a great family ski resort, with top notch learn to ski programs for kids and adults alike.

This is not a big resort but there are slopes for everyone with some nice steep runs (by New England standards anyway).

Saturday is busy but Sunday tends to be better if you want to avoid lift lines. The resort has two high speed lifts from the base and a number of older and slower doubles and triples.

After years of skiing at Bretton Woods we now ski here mostly because of the ski programs for our kids and frankly the friendlier staff.

Let me start by saying that the mountain at Waterville Valley is great for skiing but that's about the only thing at Waterville that is nice. The whole town square area is old and in need of serious attention. The restaurants need to be re-vamped, and the few little stores offer nothing. WHat is a real negative to this area is that unless you want to drive about 30 minutes you are stuck here for lodging and dining. We ate at legends and diamond edge and both were over priced and offered beloiw average food and service. Diamond edge charged us 12 dollars for 3 cokes my kid had during dinner. The glass was an 8 ounce glass. Give me a break.. I can't remember the last restaurant I was in that charged for refills on a soda espceially in light of a 4 dollar charge for a soda. Dinner was 130 bucks for 4 of us and I've had better food at TGI Fridays.. The sign said 1/2 price appetizers but they charged us full price and when I inquired they told me that that was for the week before and hadn't taken down the sign...No offer to make things right. I took it down off the front door and placed it on the bar when I left so others wouldn't be duped by the same trick. The next day it was back again.... So the rest of this is a review of the Town Square Condos which are owned and run by Waterville Valley Resort. The units were bult in the late 8os and haven't been touched since. Our unit had torn and dirty carpet, cracked and peeling paint everywhere, little hot water and outdated furnishings. If you can get a cehap rate it would be OK but these are not nice units whatsoever. I can hardly believe that the resort hasn;t at least painted or replaced carpetting if they aren;t willing to do a complete re-model which is totally over due. Old formica everywhere, old sinks, showers, oh and the beds were HORRIFIC.

This condo needed a few extras--like tissues, cups in the bathrooms, more cleaning supplies. The cooking utensils were few and there were no wine glasses. The kitchen floor was quite dirty. The mattresses are hard. All in all, though, it was comfortable enough and we did have a good time. I was a little discouraged at check-in when we were given a list of what it would cost if we lost a key, got locked out, etc...A better greeting would be nice, instead of assuming the worst..

Thank you for your comments! Town Square is under new ownership and we are working to upgrade the condo interiors, increase kitchen supplies (there definitely should have been ample wine glasses in your condo!), and improve cleanliness. We are also replacing many of our mattresses. I appreciate you taking the time to write a review, and hope you'll return to Town Square again in the future.

We stayed in revelation condos; unit was very clean and staff was very helpful. All inclusive pass included chair-lift, boating, bike-rental, tennis, golf. Ice-skating was included but schedules were not so convenient. Italian farmhouse restaurant in nearby plymouth,nh worth visiting for vegetarian meals. Definitely recommend Town Square Condos.

Loved this place-- we stayed in the Pond View Room-a 3BR overlooking Corcorans Pond--based on previous reviews, it seems to make a big difference which room you stay in. Ours was huge & clean, 3 floors, with A/C on each floor, keeping it cool (the 3rd floor got pretty warm during the day) Bathrooms & kitchen were clean (no mold etc), furniture had very little wear & tear. The worst was the dining room table, which was consistently sticky. Living room area was comfy & clean, carpets were decent, and beds were comfy. There are a lot of stairs to climb, parking lot is quite a ways away also, so you need to grab a luggage cart & unload your car by the check-in office & lug your bags to your room-using stairs!! We took advantage of the SummerUnlimited package that came with our room & went ice skating at the arena, used paddleboats/kayaks on the pond, chairlift up Snow Mt (hiked down once, another time we rode down), used the clay tennis courts. There is also a nice beach & swimming area within walking distance and a 9 hole golf course. There are lots of quaint little shops & some restaurants in the "square"-shops are pricey (there is a country store/market, but I suggest you bring most of your groceries from home & just pick up milk etc at the store since they are expensive also). Shops close up early & there is little to no nightlife, which is nice for those of us who enjoy the peace & quiet. Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay for a peaceful vacation, and we are looking forward to returning.
