This hotel had a great deal. The staff were extremly friendly and could not have been more helpful. The room was fine and the indoor pool was excellent. Breakfast was disappointing due to their restaurant being referbished. This did not detract from the great value. Great location for getting around NH & Vermont.

The phone wouldn't work. It never did ring, just 'blipped'.
Breakfast was a joke...a dirty joke. Fruit flies in the orange juice, had to be thrown out. No cutlery out, cereal bin hadn't been filled in days or weeks, filthy, even beyond filthy kitchen.
Room smelled badly...like cockroach spray.
Bottom line.....needs a wrecking ball. Stay away.

I just returned from a stay at the BW Sunapee. I have stayed at this hotel in the past. It's the only true modern hotel near Mt. Sunapee, so they have very little competition. Location to the Mt. can't be beat (less than a mile). The hotel has always been consistantly average in my previous stays. Previous reviews seem a bit harsh. I have always found it to be clean, with friendly staff, but VERY basic. When I checked into my room for this stay, I was surprised to see a flat screen TV (with built in DVD) hanging from the wall, new bedspead, new leather recliner, new mattress, and some decorations on the wall. Nice improvement! Even with the improvements, rates are high for what you get. Location, Location, Location.

A few gripes...The heater unit (under the window) is loud, and difficult to regulate the temp in the room. The addition of a hot tub would be great for a hotel that caters to skiers. The new bedspread was great, but triple sheeting (sheet on top of the cheap velux blanket) would make a big difference. Complimentary continental breakfast is a nice gesture. Waffle maker is great, but quality of fruit, muffins and doughnuts need upgrading.

Don't expect the Ritz, and you'll be happy with BW.

My Family and I had a most enjoyable visit to the Sunapee Area when we stayed at this hotel during the Nextel Race at NHIS last weekend. The front desk staff was most helpful in finding us things to do prior to the race and getting us fed after hours at the hotel's restaurant Murphy's. Ou room was large and well decorated. This hotel must have been a MARRIOT IN A PREVIOUS LIFE. I have never stayed in a Best Western so nice, clean and attractive. We are thinking about a longer visit next July as there is a beautiful lake behind the hotel with a sandy beach. I, We would really have to say that Sunapee Lake Lodge was the highlight of our weekend.

Where do I start. Stinky room with stained bed spread. The room smell was really bad. I called the front desk and the lady told me to open a window. I would have been better off pitching a tent ouside as this hotel is scary. It was so bad I called the corporate office and they told me that the Best Westerns are independently owned so they were unable to help me. Bottom Line this place is like The Bates Motel in the horror movie.

Just returned from a weekend "getaway" at The Sunapee Lake Lodge and could not wait to get back home! The rooms were very dirty. and smelled of stale beer. The rugs were sticky and the bedspread was covered with hair. The a/c units on the wall were very noisy and woke you up when the compressor kicked in. The staff was rude and ignored the most trivial request. Requests for an adjoining room (Over a month in advance)were repeatedly ignored though the hotel was still taking reservations. When our phone would not take calls we were told "the phones are a problem and should be rewired. The continental breakfast consists of fatty danish and a dirty juce machine, don't forget the weak coffee. Reserve a room online and they try to sell you a timeshare next door. You're reward is a free night at this dump - I will not be coming back.
