We booked this hotel to visit Portsmouth and Maine. We picked it because it is pet friendly and the pet fee is reasonable ($25 a night). The hotel itself is quite charming from the outside, well lit, and cute. It is surrounded by college apartments. Parking was easy. The hotel was clean, smelled good, and basic. It has a flat...

Good value for the money and walking distance to downtown Durham and UNH. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean and modern. Fitness room needs a little more attention (towels, water dispenser filled, and tv fixed so volume works) plus would be appreciated if a small rack of free weights could be added as there is room. Others have... More

My former sorority roommate and I came to UNH for our 50th Reunion. I am glad that I reserved our room here. The rooms are decorated nicely, and the staff is very professional and helpful. We enjoyed the best continental breakfast I have ever eaten at a hotel. Please tell me what company makes the delicious cinnamon rolls.

We stayed here for UNH moving day weekend, since we were coming from out of state, and its a loooong drive. The hotel is within walking distance of UNH and downtown Durham.

We finally made it to NH to visit our son and his friends. He relocated to the area a year ago and loves it. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Durham.

Breakfast was amazing they even had soy milk (lactose intolerant here). Beware this hotel shares a parking lot with a college housing unit. First night we got to listen to a loud argument. The door doesn't block any noise from the hall way. A drunk woman came in singing "love shack, baby love shack" at 2 am. Doors close heavily... More

This hotel is located just on the edge of the UNH campus and is convenient to downtown Durham. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The front desk welcomed me in, answered any questions I had, and was able to arrange my room so that I could check in nearly three hours early. The hotel itself isn't particularly fancy --... More
