We have stayed at this hotel five times with our dog when we visit family in Portsmouth, NH. The staff goes out of its way to be helpful when it comes to your pet. Two great places to walk your dog. One is just across the street and down on the right past the old town hall: a nice little... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel. We wanted to be located close to the UNH campus and unfortunately, Durham has few accommodation choices. Some of the lamps in our room had cobwebs inside of them and the plastic lamp shades were damaged and also looked like they had not be cleaned in a long time. The beds... More

this is a nice hotel, convenient to town. It seems just a bit overpriced though. And the breakfast is adequate, but other chain hotels do much better. Rooms are decent size. Hotel is clean and staff is helpful. If you are an impatient person, recommend staying on the first floor as there is only one elevator and it seems a... More

I drove past this hotel 3 times because it's so nice on the outside that it just doesn't look like an HIE. It kind of looks like a very big bed and breakfast. The lady at the front desk was very nice, the room was excellent, the wifi worked well enough to stream which those of you who are seasoned... More

Hello fallsfireryan, Thank you so much for your kind review. We pride ourselves on great guest service and we are so excited you enjoyed your stay here in Durham. You are correct when you say we don't look like your typical Holiday Inn Express. We are in a very small college town and our building fits the town very well.... More

I had previously reviewed this hotel. One disappointment originally was the lack of a refrigerator and microwave in the room, since all Holiday Inn Express' that I had stayed in previously had them. I was quite happy to check in to our room this past weekend to see this upgrade. Also, there was a youth hockey tournament in town, so... More

My daughter and I stayed for 1 night to visit UNH. It is 2-3 blocks from the campus, so very convenient to visit this college town. I was not expecting too much, for this basic hotel chain. The room was clean and comfortable, nice beds, linens, towels. Loved the bed and bath brand shampoo/lotion. A step up from the usual!... More
