"Nice stay."
I think my expectations were too high upon arrival, I was somewhat disappointed. However, once settled in, it was very comfortable. We went to relax and we did. There were a lot of children but all well behaved. A great place for a young family.

This hotel is close to Gunstock resort for skiing, and right on Lake Winnipesaukee for staying in the summer time. Very close to the NH bank pavilion too.

"Great option for skiing at Gunstock Mountain"
Was quite convenient - only about 15 minutes to the mountain. Pool was a nice additional touch, too. Not much to do in the area, but Patrick's Pub across the street was a good pub-style restaurant. Will definitely stay there again.

"Comfy and busy"
I enjoyed my night at Fireside. My room was nicely appointed, with a comfy bed, tons of pillows, and good temperature in the room. I liked the shampoo/conditioner/soaps they provided as well. The hotel was pretty full, and since it was the weekend between Mass & NH winter vacation, there were lots of kids and families there. No problem, just a little noisy in the public areas of the hotel, but my room was nice and quiet. Front desk help was very nice and accommodating...and the whoopie pie was delish!

We had decided to go tubing at Gunstock. The Fireside was perfectly located just several miles up the road. The staff was friendly and the room was comfortable. The continental breakfast was more than we expected and good! We went to Patricks across the street for a very good meal and atmosphere.

"Great Value Close to Gunstock and Restaurants"
The Fireside is in a great location, just at the bottom of Belknap mountain and in close driving distance to Laconia restaurants, supermarkets, and other destinations around the lake. The rooms are a comfortable size and feature microwaves and nice-sized fridges which can help defray the cost of the ski slopes. It's the multiple small additional touches and the staff's friendliness which really set the Fireside apart from other options--from the whoopie pies at the front desk, to the evening popcorn and complimentary soda, to the solid execution on the continental breakfast. Few hotels in this size category seem to seek opportunities to make a guest feel at home but it's the Fireside's eye to finding these opportunities and sticking the landing (and caring about differentiation, period) which make it a gem! The front desk is exceedingly patient and cheerful with guests who don't ultimately deserve it (why do adults bring food into the pool area when they are asked not to?) and is a wealth of information (e.g., where to eat, what time to beat the crowds, where to get the awesome in-room coffee). The pool was crowded (but that was the case in the other hotel we stayed at), the jaccuzzi, lovely!

the room was great and very clean but they have a water problem there. It has a metal taste and is a light brown sometimes. I brought this to the front desk and was told they had a problem with the well this summer but It is November and it is still there. It does not make a good cup of coffee and not very good to use to brush your teeth ect.

"Clean, reasonably priced hotel with nice amenities"
Overall, we were very happy with our stay. The rooms were clean, the staff (especially the woman at breakfast) was very friendly, and we loved the little extras like the free whoopie pies at check in, and unlimited hot cocoa, coffee and soda. We used the indoor pool, which was nice - the water was warm, but the air inside the pool area was chilly! The food at breakfast was great. It was nice to have so many options which included fresh pancakes and waffles. Our only very minor complaints are that it was hard to control the air in the room...it was either too hot or too cold, and the free soda had a funny smell to it! However, I would definitely recommend this place to others travelling in the area. It is a cute place and very well kept.

This is hands down the single best hotel I have stayed in for less than $200 per night. Free weights in the weight room, nice aerobic machines, keurig in the room, free coffee 24-7 (quality coffee which met my coffee snob standards), microwave, refrigerator, great breakfast, whole bit. Staff was awesome. If I had to stay in a hotel for a year, it would be here.

"One night at Fireside"
Stayed one night at the Fireside while visiting an elderly relative. Room was big, bathroom small. Decorating within room/hotel dated. Bed was lumpy, sheets/towels worn. There are definitely nicer hotels in area, however...the Fireside does have some charm, and definitely could be improved with a much needed upgrade. You get a small whoppie pie at check in, the complimentary breakfast includes make your own waffles and pancakes, plus plenty of bakery products, fruit, cereal. There was an indoor/outdoor pool, popcorn machine, soda fountain, and the staff was very kind.

This is our second time at this hotel. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Nice size room with a gas fireplace and private balcony. We chose this hotel for it's proximity to Meadowbrook concert venue. Great restaurant across the road. They offer a complimentary continental hot and cold breakfast. Plenty of seating which is not like a lot of other hotels. No comment on the food since we ate after leaving the hotel.

"A nice hotel at a reasonable price"
This was a good experience overall. We might have preferred a single king over 2 queens, but otherwise, the room was comfortable. The balcony was nice, and we appreciated having a small refrigerator in the room. The exercise room was also good, although the equipment seemed a bit old. The free breakfast was unimpressive. There were several families with children staying there, and that made the breakfast room pretty crowded and loud. We would recommend breakfast elsewhere if you want lots of food choices and more quiet. Staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Overall, an excellent choice for a hotel in this area and would recommend.

We had 2 rooms on the second floor. Each had 2 double beds. They were very spacious and comfortable. Amenities were perfect. Only complaint might be noise but it all depends on your neighbors. The lobby is small. There is no where to sit and chat as a family but refreshment room close to the lobby is very handy. Daily surprises are extra. Indoor pool and spa are wonderful. Exercise room is also satisfactory although the equipment is old. Breakfast is above standards of so called "international" free servings. All of the employees are friendly and seem to be happy in there. Front desk is pre-prepared for all kind of nearby entertainments.

"Not bad for the price"
The hotel feels out of the way, but it is actually just down the road from Meadowbrook. Room was a good size, but the hotel has obviously seen better days. Chipped counters in the bathroom and the bed had a decided dip in the middle. The room was very clean! The TV in the double queen was an old tube TV sitting above the TV cabinet which made for a awkward viewing angle. I understand the suites are being updated and have flat panel TVs. There was a microwave, Keurig coffee maker and a small fridge. No elevator and the continental breakfast had cold hard boiled eggs, a waffle maker and the usual assortment of breads and cereals. I was amazed to be handed actual keys instead of key cards. The indoor pool and jacuzzi looked nice, but I didn't try them. The exterior doors away from the reception area were not locked until midnight. If you use a Garmin you will drive right past the driveway which is on Rte 11B not on the Harris Shore Rd side.
