Had problems with shower draining, but overall we are pleased.

We stopped with our small family for one night on our way to Maine in September 2020. The hotel was in a great location as a stop along our route. It was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the property felt safe. We were very happy to stay one night and had no complaints about the room itself. It felt modern and well kept. Our only complaint would be that the breakfast was very disappointing. We don't expect a free continental breakfast to be amazing, but one of the reasons that we selected the hotel was because it had a free breakfast and we thought that it would be nice to start our day of driving with something convenient to eat. Much to our dismay, the only thing the hotel offered was a packet of instant oatmeal and a bottle of water. Breakfast was served from 7 am-10 am and we arrived to the the table at 8:40 am. We were shocked to see that there was nothing else available except for these various oatmeal packets and when we asked the staff about why there was nothing else, he said that they ran out of food and did not have anything else. When we emphasized that it was only 8:40 am and breakfast goes until 10, he simply said that they were not expecting that many people and they simply ran out of food. It was Labor Day weekend, mind you, so I'm not sure how they weren't expecting a lot of people. There were also only two spoons left, so our family of 4 had to end up sharing them. We were disappointed to say the least.

It was a quick check in. Room was really clean. We love the stay. Thank you very much!

Being at UNH...Holiday Inn provides me with a terrific opportunity to be in a clean, professional and personal environment when I need to stay on campus

Too expensive for what you get. The window unit AC is blowing at the head of the bed. Neighbors were super loud. We called the front desk but they didn’t do anything to stop them (kids) from slamming doors and chatting. The sink for the bathroom is actually outside the bathroom and the bathroom was small and tight.

Great location, nice rooms, clean property, good breakfast

We have stayed at this hotel a few times while visiting our daughter at UNH. It is always clean and the staff is nice. This was the first time we had breakfast there. It was good and they had a variety of things to choose from. We would stay here again.

A Sweet Oatmeal raisin cookie was waiting for us at check in. Staff volunteered local map and dinner restaurant choices. Suggested & offered we leave our car in hotel lot for our campus tour. Room was clean with nice area lighting. Split bath sink from shower was a useful set up for us. Room darkening shades and thermostat controlled heater all new and working quietly. Everything seemed new - carpets & furnishings.

Easy checking . Close parking . Breakfast choices good

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.
