Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2011

The motel and cottages were fine and well kept. The breakfast was continental and adequate. The pool was amazing. The cottage was nice. However, the motel operator herself was very curt. The rest of the staff were great.

Oops...Sorry. But, glad to hear that everything else was perfect.

It's rare, but occaisionally the 12 hour a day, 7 day a week work schedule "catches-up" to us. This is a strong hint that we need to take a day off every now and then.

We have stayed at Sky Valley every summer for ten years along with assorted family members and friends. Our kids feel like they grew up in cottage 26. We love the ever-changing river and our annual campfire there; playing badminton and shuffleboard; the enormous pool. It's as much summer camp as hotel - there are tiny toads in the grass and incredible stargazing opportunities on the enormous grounds at night. It's not the Ritz Carlton, but if you remember spending idyllic summers in New England as a child, this is the place to recreate those memories for your kids and relive them for yourself.

Just returned home from our 5th stay at Sky Valley, and already looking forward to next year! Dave and Maureen have become like family, and Cottage 5 our home away from home. They've been doing a lot of work redecorating both inside and out - looks fabulous! The place is always clean, nice quiet location, cottages are spread out so you aren't on top of your neighbors. I highly recommend Sky Valley!

Enjoyed our stay here. Teens enjoyed the - very clean- pool. Unfortunately, the river had changed course and almost dried up at the resort due to the weather, which was disapointing, but not the hotel's fault. No air con (as they said), and almost unbearably hot in spite of the fans in each room; unusual weather for the time of year. Only downside was a rather unimaginative breakfast. Lovely day at the Attitash resort - highly recommend.

Room Tip: no air con so very hot in high temperatures. Small and not modern, but the owners do tell you that o...

Our Free breakfast consists of 8 different cereals, wheat or white toast, english muffins, 4 different fllavored jelly types. 4 different flavors of oatmeal, usually two choices of juices. Milk, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. At least two Fruits, bananas and oranges. All this at the Poolside Cafe which is a large open room with windows on two sides overlooking the pool. Those who prefer the outdoors might like the open patio instead. Most people find it a great value...But, we tend to agree, that basic breakfast fare tends to lean away from originality. Cereal, toast and muffins is pretty standard stuff that's hard to get original with....but we do try to offer variety....and it's FREE. For a memorable "original breakfast" we always suggest a little place in Jackson called Yesterdays.

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We loved the way it was set back off of the main road! Very quiet and private!

Love Sky Valley! We have been here before but hadn't been back for a few years. Went for 4th of July weekend and can't wait to go back. Having a campfire on the beach and roasting marshmallows makes a great family memory. Motel room was huge and lots of room for four of us. Pools is great and plenty of floats for everyone.

We recently stayed in one of the apartments at Sky Valley for a family vacation. My son was upset at first that we were not staying at a hotel, however, that only lasted a few minutes. Our two kids loved having their own room, the large yard/playground to play in...their favorite thing was the cereal for breakfast...the campfire with smores was great, too. We, parents, loved the location. Sky Valley is located near great hiking locations in Crawford Notch but close to North Conway attractions (Storyland, Conway Scenic Railroad). As we drove around, I would ask the kids if they would like to stay "there" or "there"..."No, we love our place!" I can't wait to plan a return visit.
