Great staff, very clean rooms, good breakfast and great Location for UNH

Very clean and seemed to be quiet mid week. Beds comfortable and plenty of pillows. Bathroom clean . Breakfast bar about the same as other chains.

The hotel staff was excellent, and treated us very well, especially the folks at the front desk. The room was clean, comfortable, and well cared for. I especially appreciated the location, which allowed me to walk to meetings at the University.

Very nice and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Convenient location.

Hotel did well to meet expectations. The room was clean, the amenities were enjoyable. Location of the hotel was perfect for where I was staying. The free breakfast was good and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to a friend.

Hotel is very close to UNH. Room was clean and comfortable. Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice hot breakfast.

An average hotel at an excellent location for UNH activities and local sightseeing.

Proximity to campus is awesome! Staff is great! Rooms are reasonable. Always wish it was a little more affordable.

Very comfortable bed with four pilllows per bed!! Microwave and refridgerator in room a real plus. Coffee pot as well and nice soaps. Lovely clean atmosphere. Great free breakfast with appealing offerings for all. Not very good food in area.

we were traveling from michigan to visit unh and the holiday inn express could not have been better. after staying in a subpar hotel along the way, just the comfort and cozyness were so very welcome. we slept like a log and walked to the campus and actually all of durham.

We have been to this hotel numerous times since our grandaughter went to UNH. She now lives less than ten minutes away so we came back for a visit and a shopping trip up to Freeport. The location is excellent, the staff very nice, and the breakfast has improved. Even though I requested a non-smoking room there was still a faint odor of smoke in the room. The coffee pot was not cleaned and no new coffee packet was left. These would be my main complaints, otherwise everything was fine. We would probably stay here again.

We had a good stay in Durham. I would recommend staying here to others

Walking distance to campus and town. Reasonable distance to Portsmouth, Dover, Newington and other towns as well as parks that make it a great place to do day trips from while staying here. Pretty good value when it's not a busy weekend. Beds could be a little more comfortable.

Very clean. staffs were friendly. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Great location. Perfect walking distance to great food and UNH campus. Room was nice and clean. My only complaint was the pillows. They were small and lumpy. Had a nice breakfast and was excited to try out their pancake maker! What a neat contraption!

Very convenient clean hotel and very close to University of NH campus. Staffvery helpful and friendly

The hotel itself was pretty nice even had cookies for our arrival. The staff at the front desk Bliss was very helpful, but, the main drawback on the stay was the housekeeping our room stunk of vomit!

Despite having most of the rooms available, they put me in a room next to the stairs which people went up and down all night- very loud. Breakfast was very subpar. Room was not in great shape- holes in wall and lamp shade.

I was very pleasantly surprised when i checked into this very clean well kept hotel. The staff were GREAT! They offered suggestions for diner in the area & were a wealth of knowledge in regards to other things to do in the area that were close by and reasonably priced in addition to the usual amusement parks and more expensive excursions. We would definetly stay here again for a brief time - we stayed 2 nights & it was perfect for what we needed.

Three pretty much sleepless nights and a sore back due to the elderly mattress. It should have been swapped out long ago! But we had t good breakfasts and the staff was very pleasant. Nice central location, too.
