I drove by Indian Head resort last summer and promised my daughter we would stay this year...we had a blast! The resort was great, close to everything we wanted to do. The rooms were clean and comfortable. (We were lucky enough to get a lake-facing room and were able to watch the fireworks display from our balcony.) The hotel is a bit dated but in a kitschy way. We both enjoyed it immensely. We will be back in the fall. I can't wait!
"Dated, poor accessibility, bad food"

Quite disappointed with our experience. The staff had little clue as to what accessibility means (sent us to a nearby attraction that wasn't at all wheelchair accessible, despite saying it was and selling tickets). The "accessible" room was big enough and had a great view, but had a low toilet with no grab bars, and partially blocked the (actually accessible) shower. Food was quite poor and slow. The place overall is very dated.

Great location. Great facilities, pool, grounds, etc. Rooms definitely need updating and would take the TOP FLOOR next time - floorboards are loud when people are walking above you (same with rooms). No complaints really. Would stay here again as it's close to everything. Nightly shows in house as well.

We stayed the fourth of July week and boy, was it fun! Indian head has awesome entertainment at night for kids, even for parents! They have THE BEST pancakes ever. The sights from the tower were amazing. The kids especially enjoyed the indoor and outdoor swimming pools and the paddle boats. It was a wonderful family vacation.
"Still enchanted by Indian Head"

We decided to leave the city for the July 1st holiday. Didn't want to go too far from home and flying anywhere wasn't an option ( too much time lost with security). It was either Burlington Vt or back to Indian Head. Indian Head won out (actually by a wide margin). Burlington is beautiful but more like a staycation with a drive. Even though our Canadian dollar was worth about .93, it is still well worth the trip to the US., especially NH as there are no federal or state taxes (except on food). We left on Friday and returned Monday. There is this wonderful feeling I get when entering the White Mountains, I call it "Nature's Tranquillizer" We ate at the restaurant on Saturday and Sunday nights and was very impressed by what we had. I especially liked one of the specials, Steak Marsala!! Would recommend to the management that this be added to the regular menu. I was going to have it the second night but unfortunately was not on the special. The mixed berry shortcake was the perfect dessert. Every time we go to Indian Head, we order the clam chowder. It is wonderful. As we were eating late on Sunday, didn't want too heavy a meal so stuck with soup and appetizers, which were perfect. I recommend the stuffed mushrooms and calamari. I tried the cannoli but am more of a fan of mascaspone cheese than ricotta. Although we didn't spend much time in the room, it was clean and modern with a huge TV. On Saturday, we drove down to Merrimac NH to the Premium Outlet Mall. It is about 90 minutes south and an easy day trip. The prices weren't as great as I had hoped but there are NO Taxes, so right way we Quebecois save 15%. Sunday was a lazy day, by the pool and hot tub and a side trip to Sugar Hill, which is a pretty little town up by Franconia. Next time, probably in August, we are planning on hiking up the Indian Head and visiting Clarke's Bears. The picture I am attaching is of the rock formation on the mountain in front of the hotel. It never ceases to amaze me how it is the perfect profile of an Indian in headdress.

We stay at the Indian Head every time we go to NH to see family. The funny part is even though my family is only 1/2 hour away they now stay there too. It feels like an experience all by itself. With the private balcony and beautiful views. My family always challenges each other with the paddle boats between racing and who catches the biggest fish! My favorite part is the evenings. Dinners are always huge and delicious and with the meal plan it's so cool not to worry about what the meal is going to cost you already paid a great price for it. now onto the evening entertainment the kids rush off to the kids club entertainment in the greenery as we go for drinks and show in the lounge, which is right next to the greenery so very easy to keep your eyes on the kids. Then we all go down to the outdoor pool for a swim before going back to the room. The kids crash within minutes and we sit out on the balcony and enjoy the peaceful quiet. Thank you Indian Head for giving us this trip to look forward to every year,

My wife and I were heading north , it was getting dark ,so we pulled in and got a room. The staff was kind and friendly,the rate was within range, so we stayed. They put us in the building across the street. That should have been a hint. It was under repair, with plenty of room to park. One other person was on the other side, not counting the working crews. I did not mind that (crews working) but the room was something else. It just met the Average rating , clean, but in need of repair and updat(s). The paint was old and cracked., the windows were covered with an unknown film, there was a smell, not that bad, had to be addressed,it was. I think the bedding was in this room for 15 plus years,very soft and saggy. I don't know if they updated this resort, but they must to keep business. I would find another place to stay. Hope they have these problems corrected. (Our stay was in june 2012).....
"Beautiful location and great food!"

My fiancee and I were looking for a place in this area to have our wedding, so we decided to stay at Indian Head and explore places around to figure it out. We absolutely loved our stay. Indian Head is surrounded by such natural beauty, that even on a day with gross rainy weather, we were still enchanted with the views. We have since stayed there again, and both times our meals were wonderful and our rooms clean. I appreciated how big the bathroom counter was, so I could spread all my soaps and hair stuff out while not crowding my poor fiancee. There are some great little stores nearby, including an awesome and ecclectic used bookstore in the same plaza as the 24 hour Price Chopper. The pools looked clean and I really enjoyed the arcade, although some of the machines were out of order. The gift shop is adorable and carries extra stuff like Tylenol. I really love Indian Head and I think we found our go-to weekend getaway for our new family!
"Great place..... But......"

Nice accommodation, good value for money and tremendous scenery. Must have been the dates of our visit (early June) but not many attractions open, and those that were open, closed early and were not that happy to receive customers! Not the IHR problem of course, but if you want to stay in the hotel and use the pool etc that's fine.... otherwise check out what else is open. I was overcharged my deposit by the hotel and although it did get sorted out, it took a few emails back and forth to do so. Again, I am sure this is just a blip and it did not detract from our stay. I would certainly go back here.
"Not The Best Choice"

OLD!!!!!! Room was in poor condition, security latch was hanging from the door casing. There was a very old burn in the carpet from someone ironing on the floor. You can do much better in this area for less $ The staff were very nice though.
