      Historical Traveler Reviews White Mountain Hotel and Resort North Conway

      Year after year, a Great Place to Stay

      from

      If you are visiting the Mount Washington Valley and want to avoid the traffic and congestion of Route 16, this is the place. The hotel is located at the base of White Horse Ledge, off of the West Side Road, which is a lightly travelled country road running parallel with the heavily travelled, over-commercialized Route 16. With extremely friendly service, clean, comforable rooms, a newly renovated pool area, and beautifully manicured grounds, this hotel provides a relaxing respite after a day of running around with the kids at at Storyland or Santa's Village. Throw in a magnificent view, a gym, a gameroom, and a beautiful nine hole golf course and it's hard to beat. Also, extremely courteous restaurant service and generally good food. Reminiscent of a small scale Mount Washington Hotel, but this one has air conditioning. My only complaints? They occasionally overcook a steak (e.g., well instead of medium), and they don't yet have high-speed internet access. Overall, we love this hotel. We have spent a summer week there during each of the last 8 years, and look forward to returning again next year.

      A great place to relax and play golf!

      from

      My husband and I have stayed there several times and can't wait to go back. We enjoy the golf course and the scenery is great. The staff are all helpful and friendly and the rooms are very nice. A great place to get away and relax!

      Jewel of the WM Valley

      from

      This is a great little resort. It really is a resort, too, offering 80 rooms, a great bar, elegant restaurant, golf course, tennis, and year-round swimming! Can't say enough about the food, either... they offer the best filet mingon in the valley!

      My fiance naturally loves the shopping in downtown North Conway, but it's always nice to head back to the hotel and relax for a bit. The hotel staff is immaculately trained, and responsive to every request. And then there's the views... behind the hotel is White Horse Ledge, in front is Mt. Cranmore and the North Conway valley, to the left is the golf course, and to the right is a sweeping view of the valley leading up to Mt. Washington. My family keeps coming back here year after year, usually twice (once in the fall, once in the dead of winter), and we see no reason to stop.

      If I had to nitpick about something, it would be that the hotel is starting to show some aging. It's almost 15 years old, I believe, but the management is already started to make some repairs and renovations. Still a very nice place to stay.

      Not a happy customer.

      from

      We have stayed at the White Mountain Hotel many times over the past few years.In Dec.2003 we inquired about staying through New Years.We were told we would have to accept their package if we wanted a room and given a special rate.On New Years Eve we went to have dinner only to find out they had us sitting with several people we did not know and would not make another table available.At that point we decided to go to another resturant.Upon checking our bill we have noticed they had overcharged us for the package and also charged us for the meal we did not have.Adding to the problem they also charged us for tax and gratutity on a meal we did not eat.We have sent both a letter and "E" mail but they have not answered.This does not seem appropiate for a resort of this cost. I would recommend going to another resort that is more interested in their customers.

      Loved Hale's White Mountain resort

      from

      Truly enjoyed our stay at Hale's White Mountain resort. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean and well kept. The food was delicious.

      The best in new hampshire

      from

      For the past 4 years my husband and I have spent Mother's Day weekend at Hale's and for the last 2 years have brought our friends too. We are getting ready to make our reservations for 2004. The staff is so friendly, the hotel small and the food is out of this world. The Friday night seafood buffet cannot be beat and the Mother's Day Brunch is outstanding. This has to be the best bargain in NH.

      Nice stay if you like it quiet.

      from

      We stayed here and LOVED IT! The staff always had the right answers, the restaurant was great, and the scenes were nice. Although it is 5 mins from the strip, that distance is worth the quiet and relaxation after a long day or to the fresh start of a day. Not sure if I would recommend this place if you had several children, and although we are in our late 20's, it seemed very popular with the 50+ crowd (probably because of the onsite golf course). Despite all of this- I would consider staying here again.

      Home Away from Home!

      from

      We stayed here in a suite the first night and moved on to a different hotel for the second and third nights. The second hotel was horrible and we got our money back and came back here. They gave us another suite, even better, than the suite the first time we stayed. This place was fantastic. The view was breathtaking, the food was superb, the staff was awesome and we felt like we were treated like family right from the start. My husband and I plan to go back in December and stay here for our 20th wedding anniversary. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. It was the highlight of our vacation.

      I'll stick with the White Mountain resort thank you!

      from

      I felt compelled to write this review after staying at the hotel last week. We have stayed at the White Mountain Hotel a few times before and still enjoy the quiet, peaceful atmosphere that is available at the hotel. I feel the rooms are clean and the staff very warm and welcoming. We also have stayed at the Comfort Inn at North Conway but prefer not to be on the busy strip. The Comfort Inn is new and does have a small indoor pool which is nice, but who wants to be cooped up inside during the summer? The White Mountain Resort Hotel has a full sized outdoor pool that is heated to 90+ degrees in the winter and an outside hot tub. My kids thought that was the cats meow; swimming in an outdoor pool in the middle of winter with snowflakes falling on your head. There is one other disadvantage to the Comfort Inn and that is not having to deal with tons of noisy people playing minigolf just outside the hotel. Not my idea of a peaceful retreat after a day of shopping or climbing. I have to commend the White Mountain Hotel on the continued quality of the food available at their restaurant. Room rates for both hotels are within dollars of each other also. For now I will continue to stay at the White Mountain Resort.

      Go to the New Comfort Inn

      from

      You'll save money and the Comfort Inn is just a year old so everything is freshly painted and new. The White Mountain Hotel is clean, but shows some signs of wear (ie. the bathrooms could use retiling, the beds could be firmer, etc.). This may sound picky, but for the price that's charged and the represenation the property makes in calling itself a "resort", my expectation of elegance and luxury wasn't met. The White Mountain Hotel is also a stopping point for senior citizens bus tours and holds entertainment and other events, so parking can be difficult. This is an annoyance if you've been outlet shopping all day and simply want to quickly get a parking space and go back to your room. The on site restaurant is a nice feature, especially for breakfast. The Sunday breakfast buffet is quite good. Oddly enough the pool is outside. Given the short duration of summer in New Hampshire, why even bother having a pool if it's going to be outside? This frustrated my daughter to no end (the Comfort Inn's pool is inside). Before the Comfort Inn was built, we stayed at the White Mountain Inn four times but now exclusively use the Comfort Inn when we visit North Conway.

      Hello from NH, there hasn't been a lot going on lately, I have been trying to wind things down, the end of my trip is just around the corner.

She's living in Washington, D.C. and funny enough - here in-laws are in North Woodstock, which we found out just by accident. So ...
