...okay so that is actually 4 words. Let me start from the beginning. I stayed here with my daughter the first week of April. We checked in on a Thursday night around 7PM. Check-in was easy and we were in our room within minutes. The room was nice. My daughter loved how big it was. The indoor/outdoor pool was nice...

We weren't sure what to expect visiting Waterville Valley during mud season, but we had lots to do and much to see - we wish we had stayed longer!. Our room @ Black Bear was clean and comfortable, I wish we didn't have to leave. Every day we walked the loop around the Village which was scenic, safe, and easily...

Black Bear Lodge completely exceeded our expectations! There was a murphy bed in the living room and a trundle bed in the 'spare' bedroom (there was a dividing curtain separating the queen bed from the twin). There was a couch and chairs as well as a dining room table and chairs. PLENTY of space! There was a full size fridge,...

the rooms were more than adequate...the kitchenette/dining area really made it feel like a home away from home, not just another hotel room. Location was great for skiing and walk to a couple of decent eats (pub grub) in the village square...and a good restaurant was only a couple miles away. Outdoor hot tub bumped it from average to good!!

I decided on a last minute get away with my teenagers age 14 and 16. We were all very happy with the lodge. The front desk was extremely pleasant and helpful. Room was nicely decorated and comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen was great, but we only stayed one night. As others have said it is a little dated, but I...

Just got back from a weekend getaway to Waterville Valley and we could not have picked a better place to stay. The entire resort is very clean from our room to the pool and hot tub. The Black Bear Lodge is in walking distance from Waterville Village, we parked our car and it never moved for the weekend. All rooms...

Lodge is dated but comfortable & we were disappointed that there was no food service there. Room was very cute & had plenty of cookware to use. I would highly recommend bringing food & drinks. There is a market in townsquare, but it is very limited & expensive. Local access to the athletic club was nice.

I went to Waterville valley because my family and I wanted to ski at Waterville valley ski resort. We went to this hotel because of the prices of the rooms and they had queen sized beds. I liked the size of the rooms and quality of them when we walked in. I was disappointed that there was no food service...

This hotel is the value option at the mountain. Its fine enough and is staffed by a very helpful team. Thin walls, long, noisy halls but the team is eager to please. It promotes a community atmosphere throughout the resort so bring ear plugs for sleeping and you'll have a great time. We would stay here again.
