“Another good stay at HIE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This Holiday Inn was very acceptable. It was very quiet despite a lot of people staying at the hotel. I was in a two bed "suite" and it was very large. It had a microwave and a small fridge.

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Parking is free.

The breakfast was the normal HIE fare, with hot eggs and bacon and the other non hot items.

All in all it was fine and I would stay there again if I needed to be in that area.

We recently stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Rochester,NH. We were there to visit family. Checking in was smooth and quick. They were very nice. The room was very clean and neat and each day we left to go out, we came back to it just as clean. The pool area was very nice,but did smell heavier than normal of chlorine. It was in my nose! I did go into the hot tub but not the pool. You can't really complain too much about that, you know it's clean! The only bad thing I would have to say about this hotel is that it does have smoking rooms. Even in the hall where all our rooms were suppose to be smoke free, I could smell it! I hate and despise the smell of smoke. We came in one afternoon and a bunch of the maids were smoking outside the side door and another time some other workers and one front door worker were smoking out front. What people don't get is if the maid that smokes is also the one cleaning your room, then guess what? Your going to smell it! I am very sensitive to it. Honestly have to say, my room did not smell of it, even if the hallway did, so thank God for that. Some places will pass off a room that allowed smoking in it and at this hotel, if you smoke in a room not designated for it,you will be charged an extra cleaning fee. In Florida, almost every hotel has become a smoke free environment. Marriott is a company that does not allow it. I hate to say it, but if there was a Marriott in Rochester, I would have to choose that just for that reason. Oh and they DO have one of the best breakfast for a hotel that is free that I have ever seen!!!!

Room Tip: We chose a suite cause we have a 14 and 12 yr old that refuse to share a bed. They actually fought o...

My wife and I recently spent two nights at this Holiday Inn Express. It is easy to find, there is plenty of parking, check-in was effortless. The person at the front desk was really personable and helpful. Don't know if it is a new building but it is spotless throughout. We had a king bed
room, there was plenty of space, a desk with chair, an easy chair and small movable table as well as all the usual hotel room furniture. The HVAC was easy to control and the room climate was much more comfortable than we normally experience - either too hot or too cold, or fans are too noisy. In temperate seasons it looks like you can actually open the windows, if you want.
The bathroom was great for us, some may not like that there was just one sink, but that works for us. There was no tub but a tub sized shower which we found bordering on luxurious.
There is an indoor pool and even a hot tub. The pool is kind of small and shallow (5 ft), but it
is just right or relaxing. My wife thought the water temp was bracing, but she soon got used to it.
There is a small fitness room with three rooms right next door. One small downside is if you are not staying on that floor and on that side of the building you will likely need to cut through the lobby to get to the pool, unless you want to take a long walk. The pool towels are pretty small, but the hotel did the nice touch or putting one on every chair and lounge in the pool area. I appreciate this attention to detail.
Now for one of the best features, the hotel offers free hot breakfast every day; eggs plus bacon or sausages, hash or sausage gravy (mmm!), biscuits, toast, cereal, juice and fruit, etc., etc. The room where they serve this is well appointed. Be advised this is not a restaurant, they offer breakfast only as a courtesy to guests. There are a number of restaurants in the area and on the same road (Rte 11) ,where you should be able to find lunch or dinner.
One more thing. When we first arrived it was chilly out, my wife was afraid we may need an extra blanket. I noticed the housekeeping cart down the hall from our room and asked the maid for a blanket, she immediately got me one that was extra thick. Thankfully we didn't need it because of the previously praised HVAC.
If you're going to Rochester, NH I would highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express.

This hotel is an excellent example of a well maintained and clean chain hotel. The staff is fantastic and the rooms are nicely sized, well appointed and comfortable. The swimming pool and hot tub area is exceptionally clean and maintained. The breakfast choices are nicely varied , well presented and the dining area is kept very clean and tidy. This hotel is well situated for easy access to the area sights, restaurants, etc yet still sits close to large trees and one can enjoy the fresh smell of the New Hampshire woods. Free internet, free breakfast, nice clean room and a wonderful and professional staff make this a great stay.

Room Tip: The mini suites are excellent and gives you room to work and sit as well as just sleep.

Seems to be our habit on a road trip to arrive in the late evening to hotels...we had a polite check-in and the room was fine, however, food of any kind was unavailable. Breakfast was okay...fruit would have made it more nutritious.

Thank goodness we drove back into Portsmouth where we had the best lunch ever before continuing on with our road trip.

Booked this on priceline.com for our stay in the area, got a great deal and as we were looking for a hotel that had free parking, wifi and breakfast. This hotel met all our needs and more. Conveniently located just minutes off the highway, it sits next to a great Mexican restaurant (La Corona) and a gas station / corner store. Hotel is new, well kept and clean, both inside and out. Staff were warm and friendly, check-in was quick, took less than a minute and everything was quickly explained including the layout of the hotel, wifi internet access and free breakfast hours and location. Hotel has a nice pool and hot tub and we also made use of the business centre to print off some documents (no charge). Our room was at the end of a hallway, had a king bed, large flat screen television and was very roomy, clean and quiet. The bathroom didn't have a tub, just a large shower but we were fine with that. Limited channel selection on the television but internet is very fast, no slow downs even during peek time. Breakfast wasn't the greatest but free and offered a good spread, my only complain was the juices are way too sweet, would be nice to have not from concentrate juices available. Overall, a great stay, would come back and recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Try the Mexican restaurant next door, amazing!
