Reviewed 22 March 2014

Our stay was sort of up and down. The up: our room was clean. We stayed in the building across from the main building. A little inconvenient, but not enough to go elsewhere. We ate in the restaurant on site. The food was ok. Hey, it's not gourmet, it's geared towards families. The service was ok. We felt a bit forgotten at times, but personality made up for that. The down: our toilet had that ring at the top of the water. You know, the one that forms if you don't clean it for awhile. Yeah, not good. I didn't notice until late, and we were only staying one night, so I ignored it, but informed the desk staff, after we settled our bill. They were grossed out and apologized. Ali a down was the lounge service. If we waited for a server we would never have had a drink. We had to go to the bar, both initially and for a second drink. It was far from busy, there were probably ten people there, so I have no idea why this was. We'll still go back though. We've been going for years.

In several ways Indian Head tries hard. The competitive room rates being the most appreciated combined with the ability to stay only one night. (I am against minimum stay requirements, especially at motels). And our room was totally clean. Yet not giving us our room keys was not one of them. How are we supposed to settle in and enjoy the "resort activities?" So after waiting in the lobby with several other families starting around 2 P.M. (and being strung along by the front desk, told that our key may become available "so check back"). Even though we were roomless, we were told we could start using the resort activities which included the ping pong which we tried but turned out to be the most defective ping pong table I have ever seen and should be thrown away. Since my kid enjoys ping pong this actually was a big let down. We ended up leaving for a couple hours. Another issue later, the outdoor hot tub was hogged by one group even though the motel was full of hundreds of other guests. And how interesting, our room was cleaned by 8:30 A.M. the next morning. Not 4 P.M. On the plus side was the large, open dining area with view, kids' dinner buffet, friendly wait staff and band with dancing. You don't have to be a guest to dine there.

Have been here before with no problems. Booked 2 nights thru a booking website with my AE card. Got confirmation number okay. On arrival, front desk states "we dont take AE so you should not have been accepted". Used another credit card to get room and upgrade from across the street room to room in main building. Game room old, worn and dark-same with indoor pool area. Not for laying back with a book. Room big enough but with mismatched stained chairs. Sink featured Cloudy tap water. Beds were comfortable but had to kill a fly in the room (3 degrees outside)and during the night had to scratch my lower leg when something bit me. Ordered pizza delivery from room service who then asked if i wanted it delivered???. They called back 5 minutes after the order asking how I was going to pay for it??? Pizza arrived-in a box and napkins. No plates. Both me and my kid felt sick and did not want to stay another night so we checked out after first night. They said "you've got to pay for both nights since you used a booking service" they said. ATM machine would not work properly also. Could not get out of there fast enough for what it cost me! Woodwards resort is far better than this place is now! Avoid this place!

We were in Room 600. We paid about $400 for two nights. It was not worth it. The floor in the room squeaked A LOT and it was super annoying. There were long black hairs on the floor in the bathroom, on the toilet and on the sink. It was clear and obvious and should have been caught. The clocks were blinking as if they had been unplugged or the power had gone out, but they didn't take the time to fix this? It's a simple courtesy but would have been nice for them to have fixed. The shower didn't drain correctly. (PS: bring soap and shampoo because what they supply didn't work very well) The beds are rock hard. Where we were staying, there was a lake that you had to walk through to get to the rooms. I know snow makes things difficult and there was a lot of it, but there must be something you can do to not have people walking through a lake. We could hear every person walking by the room, because the pathways are hollow and loud. For $67 a night, we could have visited a cabin we enjoy and had a wood burning fireplace. We thought for this much money, we'd get a really nice room.

The positive: there were a lot of pillows, a mini fridge and microwave. The TV is also very big and has a good picture.

We stayed at the Indian Head Resort during the busy President's Week, so we knew things would be hectic at any place with school vacation week. Overall, this place is OK but didn't seem worth the money. The upsides were: outdoor heated pool and sauna which was a treat--but there was never any hotel supervision so drunk guests were left running amok in the area spoiling it for families trying to enjoy themselves. The indoor pool was heated but for two days no one knew how to turn on the jet tubs in the bath because no signage. The outside pool is dirty. Inside the rooms, our biggest issue was no hot water each morning of our stay. Definitely not a great way to start the day. We were on the 2nd floor and our room opened up to a cement wall full of cracks and our balcony view was the parking lot where we were awoken each morning by the snowmobilers loading their trailers. Our kids wanted to try playing bingo and ice cream social, but the poor tween working the event for the hotel was overwhelmed by unsupervised and unruly gang of 7-10 year olds. In fact, the only time we saw an adult supervisor was when one came in to help herself to an ice cream sundae. The housekeeping staff seemed overwhelmed--friendly but could only manage to clean our room after we had returned from skiing at 6pm. Overall, the physical property is tired. Yes, this place is cheaper than other resorts closer to the mountains but you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Avoid the second floor rooms--subterranean and the only view is the parking lot.

Stayed here for one night last weekend with my wife and 8 year old son. This is a great family style resort right in the heart of the white mountains. Very affordable prices compared to other lodging in the area. Especially loved the outdoor pool and hot tub. There's just something about swimming in a nice heated pool outside when the air temp. is 10 degrees. Super nice staff at the check in desk, clean rooms with big flat screen t.v.'s. Great deal on discount ski lift tickets at the front desk. Have stayed here before in the past and we will definitely stay here again.

My husband and two children recently stayed at the Indian Head Resort for Super Bowl Weekend and it was the best choice! We loved our stay at the Indian Head there are so many fun activities for the whole family. My children loved sledding down the hill, ice skating, and swimming. There were so many winter activities to do we didn't have enough hours in the day. We couldn't have been happier anywhere else. We definitely made some great memories for them that weekend skiing and enjoying the outside whether. We were very lucky it snowed while we were there (since thats why we travel up there), nothing beats seeing my children bundled up enjoying the fresh fallen snow. My husband and I wanted to especially thank Cid for accommodating our needs, from the moment we walked the front entrance, to the time we drove away she was making sure our stay was he best it could be. She told us all the fun things we could do with our kids and everything was just perfect and truly magical.
