“Have travelled alot across the world.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

For starters any bad reviews of this resort I can say are due to exceptional chance and bad luck. This resort was beautiful. The staff was all friendly. We didn't encounter anyone who wasn't smiling and helpful from the staff which is very hard to find. I stayed there with my husband and two kids (2 1/2 years old and 5 1/2 months old). I will break it down for you.We stayed there 6 days in July 2013 during peak season. Room 165.

Resort...One of the few that was not smack dab on the main road. You need to drive up a scenic driveway to get to it. Other hotels were right on the main street and even worse their pools were there too. This hotel is was beautifully maintained. nice flowers, clean, etc They had a cute mini golf, a nice game room, a playground for kids, very clean indoor pool etc.

Rooms...average room. Very spacious. nice view from any room. balcony old but again enjoyable view. overall clean. We needed to call reception to clean something in the bathroom for us that was there before we arrived and not only did they send housekeeping in under 5minutes the manager was by their side to make sure we were ok with everything and that it was cleaned. I have NEVER had such a fast response by staff at a hotel EVER When I needed something and we stayed their during peak season while they were very busy. That really impressed me. Oh and rooms did not have musty smell but I'm guessing after all the reviews they figured to air out the rooms because we saw them airing out rooms for almost the whole day after guests had checked out.

Reception...check in took 5 minutes. Check out took 5 minutes. They were very helpful for directions, attractions, safety deposit box, responding to our calls and our requests. Never waited more than a minute at front desk. Friendly. They even explained that our room was chosen to suit our situation. they explained since we had kids they conveniently placed us on the first floor and near the playground. I was very grateful for that.

Manager Chuck and another manager I think it wasn't him only but not sure. Very friendly,thoughtful and did a great job. He seemed to be part of the furniture there cause we always saw him around somewhere. When we had an incident with our oldest child puking in the room he was there with housekeeping and as they cleaned he made sure our son was ok.He even went and brought him a ginger ale to settle his stomach.

The location is wonderful. It is close to so many convenient things. Rite-Aid, walgreens, mcdonalds, dollar tree, dunkins, etc. We didn't have to drive far for anything. We went to the railroad to see Thomas the train and that was close too. Not very far from storyland either maybe 20 minutes with traffic and lights.It was also very close to its sister esort the red jacket. We profited during one rainy day to our 50% discount at their Kahuna Laguna water park being guests of fox ridge. Staff (life guards) at kahuna NOT so friendly or helpful.

Breakfast buffet...was very nice and tasty. They tried to vary it by changing up the bacon to sausage a couple times. They had lots of choices. Coffee, tea, juices, milk, yogurt, fruits, cereals, muffins, bagels, toast, potatoes,eggs, pancakes, French toast type of thing, etc. It all tasted good, it was always full and fresh. They had crayons and special placemats to entertain children. This saved us a lot of money eating a big breakfast.

My only complaint (not much fault of the hotel) the guests above us were so loud. It seemed like we had pro wrestlers practicing above us. they stomped not walked. I guess if it were more soundproofed between the two floors that would have ben great.

Another thing greatly appreciated were all the activities they would have daily. Marshmallow roasting at fire pit and lemonade. Tis allowed us to mingle with other guests. My son loved it.

Overall this was a wonderful experience.I would only stay there again if in new hampshire for the beauty of the resort, the location of the resort, the friendly helpful staff, the breakfast buffet and so much more. Thank you guys truly for making our stay enjoyable and you shall see us again!!!

I would have given it 5 stars but I had to carry my bag up the stairs elevator would be nice. Other than that its a great! Place. Lots of things to do for families. 2 nice pools. Bonfire at night. Decent free breakfast. Rooms are clean with balconies. Very friendly staff. We didn't do the water park so I can't say how tat is. There's a frequent shuttle bus over there - less than 1 mile. I was glad we found it. We wanted golden gables but it was full. This is nice though.

I chose Fox Ridge for our Storyland getaway hotel because of the AAA rate, location on "the strip", breakfast included, outdoor pool, playground and mostly good reviews here. Overall, I would stay again. The property is well-kept. Our room was clean, a bit musty that took some getting used to, but we had a mountain view patio room right by the pool. The easy access was great, especially with the hot weather. The outdoor pool is huge, clean, and has a pool bar! Laura, the pool bar gal, was terrific- she made great cocktails, a fun poolside playlist and a mini-sundae for my little girl. She even passed out Bomb Popsicles to everyone at the pool because it was so hot. Breakfast was average; my kids were happy and filled up on eggs and pancakes before the park. We never made it to the bonfire and marshmallows or the playground, but certainly hope to in the future.

Room Tip: If you have children, get a patio level with a mountain view. Your back door leads out to the sprawl...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Laura the "pool gal" is terrific she never stops smiling, and what a hit when she passes out those poolside popsicles. Hope to see you before school starts.

This was our 3rd time staying in this hotel.
The location is great, right in the middle of everything. The staff is super friendly. The grounds of the resort were clean and very nicely taken care of. The rooms were good and the beds comfortable.
The views are amazing and you really feel in the mountains. The outdoor pool is perfect and I love you can still use the indoor pool if the weather is not the best. Jacuzzi is good, but it looked a little dirty this last time we went there.
The breakfast buffet is included and really good. A lot of options and plenty of food for the whole family.
Everyday they have different activities for the family and for kids. We roasted marshmallows, went on carriage rides, enjoyed outdoor cookout, game/movie night, etc. They also offer ceramic painting for the kids.
It is right next to the outlet mall and if you want to go to Kahuna water park, the transportation between the hotels is free.
We found out that they have some rooms that are pet friendly, something it didn't list on their website. You can only book these rooms by calling the hotel. Definitely bringing our pup next time!

3 year's returning! Our "super friendly staff" thank's you. Chef Crystal and her kitchen team were thrilled to read your comments about the breakfast buffet. Our Kahuna shuttle makes it easy to use all the amenities at both resorts. Hope to see you again soon.

I posted another review of this hotel from my stay last summer. However, I just have to post again since I love this place so much. First of all, I was well taken care of by Bobbi upon check in. She was set to give us a room with a beautiful view of the mountains on the second floor but then my wife thought we'd be better off with a garden level view near the play ground so we could let our kids go run over there while we watch from as far as possible. So Bobbi gave us the other room. Also, she gave me a very good price which she does every time I call. The room includes a breakfast buffet and it was a very good value. Plus, when you stay at one of these Red Jackets in North Conway, you get a reduced price on the water park and there some park hours that are limited to hotel guests only. Plus, when you buy one ticket, you get two hours the next morning for free. But my favorite thing is the big pool. My kids love it. Also, so many other families stay at this hotel that there were always new kids for them to play with and I could relax in the jacuzzi. Next there's a fridge in the room which is very handy. Finally, they had fun activities like a bon fire and movies. I give 5 stars, only because I can't give 6. Will be here again next year.

Room Tip: Second floor has some mountain views. The bottom floors have some space to let the kids go running...
