“Pleasantly surprised at new additions to the room.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

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 the hotel had an abundance of young children. The registrar told us to contact the desk if it got too noisy. The parents made sure that the children were quiet plenty early enough. A happy stay!

Hello JanetCWyoming_RI,

Thank you for your great review. We appreciate when guest's share their experiences with the world! We were all very excited to get Microwaves and Refrigerators in all of our guest rooms. It is an essential amenity for today's traveling guests! We also just received new pillows for all of our guest rooms, for a better nights sleep! In February, we are actually upgrading our entire wireless internet as well. We have a lot going on here in Durham!!

Thank you again for your kind review, and we look forward to your next stay when you StaySmart here at the Holiday Inn Express @UNH!

Yours in hospitality,

Steve Godin
General Manager

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

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! The complementary breakfast was standard fair, however my daugher and I both found hair in our food Yuck! Maybe hard to control in a bufftet situation like this, but still... should have stayed with the yogurt and a banana -pre packaged! all in all a very decent stay, and we were satisfied.

Spent one night here on the way back home from MA. Hotel was very clean and nicely decorated for Fall. They had placed fresh chocolate chip cookies and apples in the foyer where you check in. Room was clean with a flat screen TV and microwave. The bathroom was a bit small, with the lavatory out in the bedroom. Although the hotel is in the center of Durham, it was very quiet so we got a restful nights sleep. Would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is within walking distance to the downtown area as well as the University of New Hampshire campus. The room was clean, clean, CLEAN and comfortable. Warm cookies and or apples upon arrival, a friendly staff, and great TV selections.

Room Tip: Rooms with low, even numbers face the back parking lot, not the street.

Arriving one day earlier than planned, we called the HI to see if they had a room available. How pleased we were to be able to stay at this property closely located near the UNH, Durham. This property is clean, and the staff are very friendly. The exercise facility even has current cardio equipment that encouraged me to stay with the program on this trip. I already booked my return to visit our student later this fall.
