“A Work in Progress”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2007

Spent a long (birthday) weekend at the "Resort" (hmmm, not quite a resort); our first visit & stay in Lincoln area (we love the White Mountains) and had gotten high reccommendations for this place from friends. Much of the building (exterior) was under construction/renovation including the pool area (surrounded by deep tracks in the dirt (lot of areas with no grass) from construction vehicles). No big deal for us because the interior was quite impressive & our room (suite) was one of the best we've ever stayed in. More like an apartment with a great 2-person jacuzzi in the bedroom, and a spacious living room & kitchen area; we were thrilled at our accomodations & immediately discussed returning for a longer stay in spite of the exterior situation. We explored the adjoining mall complex, where none of the few occupied stores were open. The staff were helpful & very courteous; no sales pitches at all to buy into the property. Two complaints from our stay: the last night we were there a family with a young girl (about 8-10) checked in over us and she ran & ran (heavy footed) for hours that night and the following morning added the 2nd floor hallway to her route; this went on for several hours and we probably should have complained, but thought it would soon stop, her parents would realize she might be disturbing others in the building...but they never did! Next time we'll stay on the 2nd floor. The second negative didn't occur until about 6 months later when we received a high pressure sales call to book a vacation...immediately, the caller was relentless and became nasty when I told her I wasn't ready to book right then...eventually I became angry and told her in spite of the wonderful time we'd had at InnSeason, we would likely not return now based on her abusive phone call. We haven't gone back, but we liked the room so much, we might reconsider.

  • Liked — Room (suite) we had was excellent.
  • Disliked — Endless noisy running above us; went on for many hours!

Thank you for your report on our resort. I can confirm that the lawns and gardens were completed in Summer 2008 and the entire resort is complete of renovations at this time. We do have an on-going "Green" renovation project, but this does not affect guests at all.
Any time that you encounter other guests that are loud or causing you discomfort, the resort would be eager to assist. Please call the front desk and give them a chance to act on your behalf, and as well report back to them if the problem is not solved. We take pride in providing a great vacation experience and want to help every guest acheive that goal.
As for a sales call, we take great pride in our resorts and want to share them with as many people as possible including our 30,000 current members. If we at times are more than a little zealous, it is certainly a reflection of this pride. Sorry if it caused you any inconvenience.
Thanks again.

I was worried about booking a room at this place, but the photos online of the 1 bedroom suite were so promising that we figured it was worth the price. We booked on the cheapest day of the season, and ended up staying for two nights for two people with wine and free dinner for $289. What a deal!

When we got there, we were very weary at first when we pulled into the hotel parking lot. It was rainy and very dark, and we could make out a few beat up buildings surrounding the area. I called before booking to make sure there wouldn't be any construction during our stay since they were going under some major renovations. Luckly, once we got inside past the dirt and bulldozers, we were welcomed by a pristine lobby and very pleasant staff. Everything inside was very modern and updated, giving the hotel a luxurous feeling. Compared to all the other hotels in the area, this was the Ritz.

We made sure to get one of the newly renovated suites, which was the biggest room we've ever stayed in. It included a kitchen, a hottub next to the bed, 2 baths, a fireplace, three tvs, and an extra family room. Two of the couches were pull outs, giving the suite 3 beds in total, although it was only considered a 1 bedroom suite. The full kitchen was very well stocked and had a very modern and clean feel to it.

The area directly around the hotel isn't so great, but as long as you get a newly renovated suite, your stay will be very comfortable. Further down the highway though is the Franconia Notch state park which is great hiking especially with all the natural water falls ad springs. Althrough the mall attached to the hotel was a little out of the ordinary, it was very convienent to order food and walk over to pick it up for a late night dinner in the hottub! Loon and Cannon mountain are also nearby. I think we'll come back in the winter for a few ski and snowboarding trips so we can take advantage of the hottub at the end of the day. We've never been so pleasantly surprised with a hotel such as this one.

Our one bedroom suite was lovely, full equiped kitchen had everything you needed. King size bed and pull out in living room area were very comfortable. Two bathrooms and a jacuzzi tub in the bedroom. 2 tv's worked great for my husband and I and our two boys. Electric "fake" fireplace was a nice touch but we were led to believe it was a real fireplace. Maid service every day. Friendly staff.

The shuttle to Loon was very convenient.

As this place is geared towards skiing we were surprised that they didn't have a downstairs locker to keep the skiis and boots in to avoid the walls getting scratched up. A central locker room would prevent the floors from getting wet. We kept our skiis and boots in the bathtub.

Gym equipment needs to be upgraded but was good enough to get an ok work out in. They should get a set of free weights in there.
Sauna was great, wished they had a steam room as well. Indoor pool was great but the jacuzzi was not hot enough and on the small side.
Overall we found it very comfortable and just what we needed for our 6 day ski trip during Presidents week.

  • Liked — Clean comfortable and nicely decorated
  • Disliked — Lack of ski lockers

Thought we were getting a deal at $96 for a "delux" King room, but in retrospect it wasnt worth it. Though the "resort" looks nice from the outside and there seem to be a decent amount of activities for families - e.g. indoor/outdoor pool, video game room - the room iteself was far from deluxe. There is not much in the room other than the bed - no fridge, microwave etc. and the bathroom was smaller than the one in our studio apartment in Manhattan. Unless you have a young family and dont care about much other than getting through the night I would skip this one.

  • Tips/Secrets — Common Man Inn nearby is great for dinner

This is a converted motel in a strip mall. We stayed in a deluxe king room and the bed was pretty much all that was in there. Hall carpets worn and stained. We were on the second floor and could smell the chlorine from the pool in the basement clearly. The place is supposed to be in the middle of renovations. Outdoor pool not large enough to accommodate number of guests. Service at the desk was weak as signs in the rooms told you to ask the fornt desk for an ashtray to use on the room porch, but they had no idea the signs were in the rooms and also had no ashtrays. It is a convenient location, but don't hope for too many beautiful vistas... a lot of pavement and a clear view of a neighboring motel/resort. I recommend not bothering with this place until they have made some substantial renovations.

I usually don't write reviews but thought it would be good to help others. "Resort" not exactly, upscale motel is more like it. Staff is great, lobby looks good. The rooms are being painted but it's not enough...the bathrooms are outdated and the furniture is old looking. The pool smell is so strong from the chlorine that you can smell it on the top floor. It says it's at the base of the mountain? Loon is about 2-3 miles away. Gym is pathetic looking. By far the noisiest place I've ever been...if you wnat to get sleep don't go here. We had the loudest people in the world above us...make sure you ge the 4th floor or forget it. Walls are paper thin, can hear everything. One pleasant surprise was there were bunkbeds in our room kina separate from the main bed so the kids had some privacy. Good price but not a resort by any means.

The resort is a clean establishment and the staff is very friendly and helpful. However, we stayed in a "Deluxe King" room and there didn't seem to be much "deluxe" about it. There wasn't much in the way of decor, there were only a couple of available outlets to plug in the coffeemaker, and there was no in-room refrigerator or microwave, which I would expect given the use of the word "deluxe". Also, very few of the shops in the resort complex were open (most were empty).
If you want a bed for the night, I would recommended the place. If you're looking for a place to have an extended stay, you may want to explore other options.

Thank you for the comments made about our resort and our Deluxe King room. We have been under renovations of all of our hotel style units since June 2005. As of today, we have completed the first phase. All units now have new carpeting, furniture, pillowtop beds, fresh painted walls and trim, new lighting, Armoires with TVs and DVD players. We are adding an additional outlet for coffee makers in the vanity area as well. The last addition was new designer pictures which add a very nice touch. These hotel units now have a similar resemblance to our Luxury Suites. The Villagre Shops has two new stores including Lily Anne's Fine Jewelry and we are expecting to announce in the Spring, the addition of a major anchor store. Thanks again!1
