“Great Stay Excellent Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

I couldn't have been happier at this location. Traveling on business alone and was looking for something central to my travels. Super helpful staff on check-in; gave great advice on restaurants, and area amenities. Room was spotless and relatively quiet, although I could hear doors slamming in the early morning hours. Bed and pillows were perfect for my tastes. Best hotel breakfast I have had in recent memory. Great selection of (relatively) healthy options, well stocked and maintained. Excellent coffee and the breakfast attendant was very friendly once I engaged her in conversation. If I were ever to return I would definitely stay here, and would be happy to recommend to others.

I have stayed at another newer hotel in the area and this is a better value. You can't beat it for the price. I prefer newer hotels or always ask if the rooms have been recently renovated, otherwise they tend to be dingy and depressing. The pool is small but unobtrusive so you can get there without parading through the lobby, just find a time you can have it to yourself. I called down and asked them if the kids that were in the pool were gone and they were very nice letting me know when "the coast was clear". The jacuzzi was just what I needed and there is a shower right there so you can rinse off. The hotel is just off the main road and near every store imaginable and an outlet mall. There is also a picnic table by the river/end of lake that surrounds one side of the hotel. The breakfast is varied and just fine for my standards with a nice seating area and view of the water. There is even a TV channel guide in the room which I think I may have suggested! fridge, microwave, 1 cup coffemaker in rooms. I will always stay here when I'm in town.

Room Tip: Since the prices were so good (it may have been off season) I upgraded to a suite with a fireplace a...

Dear Nancy N,
Thank you both for your recent stay with us, as well as taking time to review our property and considering us "best in area".
We love it when our guests are able to utilize our picnic table by the river as it is such a tranquil location, and perfect for relaxing. You should see the colors in autumn!
Of course there's no denying the jacuzzi is perfect for relaxing as well, and it's great you had an opportunity to experience it first hand.
Cordially,
Emily G

This HI Express is just 0.25 miles off I-93, exit 20. The hotel is very clean; I didn't see the dust in the corners & crumbs under the bed like in many hotels where they do a quick, central sweep with the vacuum. Compared to the other HI (different chain) down the road, I would say it's very similar - I liked the breakfast better at the other place - but this location is better quieter & quicker on & off of interstate. I'll stay at whichever one has the better rates in the future.

Our location only 0.25 miles from the interstate does make for quick access to the hotel, while the river setting makes for a quiet getaway.

Clean room! Friendly staff. Location is great. Breakfast is not exactly what you'll get at a diner but it is more or less what some of us have on a typical morning anyways. Will stay again when in the area!

Every year, my daughter and I spend a week in February skiing at Gunstock. We stay at the Tilton Holiday Inn Express. We love this hotel. The rooms are spacious, modern, and clean. The staff is fantastic, will greet you by name and are very attentive to your needs. The morning breakfast is fabulous as you are trying to head out the door for a day of skiing, and the pool and hottub are incredible as you head back in through that door after a long day of being on the mountain. We will continue to come back!

It is not in a very popular area, but if you need to be in the area, or like to be between the lakes (Laconia) and the mountains (Lincoln), this is a perfect choice. Very clean rooms, nice staff, clean pool and hot tub, probably the best free breakfast I have ever encountered at a hotel, the kids loved the pancake machine! Don't miss the Tilt'n Diner around the corner, it is a NH treasure. Lots of stores nearby if you need anything. If it's summer don't miss Funspot in Laconia (though it is open year round!) We ended up here because all the hotels in Lincoln were booked for school vacation week and it turned out to be a great place.

We stayed here with our two young children and we found this to be a really clean, affordable, and comfortable place to stay, being close to Gunstock for skiing.. maybe about a 10 minute drive. We stayed a couple of nights, and paid about $129 per night. We checked in, and the receptionist Terry was quick and efficient, telling us where the elevator was and asked if we needed a wifi code. We went to our room to unpack and the place was pretty quiet for being a school vacation week and being told it would be a full house that night. Seems like everyone was pretty considerate. We booked a Studio Suite, 2 Queen Beds, Non Smoking, and was located on the 2nd floor. We requested a non-ground floor, not sure if they accommodated or were just lucky. The room was pretty clean and spacious. When you walked in, there was a bathroom, and then an open closet, and a fridge, microwave, counter with kitchen. After was a couch, with 2 chairs and 2 tables - a nice separate sitting area from the beds. Then, there was an ottoman, 2 beds, side table and one more chair. A nice view too. The room was overall very clean. If I had to be nit picky, the coffee maker was in the bathroom and a bit dusty on top, as well as on the bathroom glass side counter, and a few things on the floor in the bathroom, but nothing to make me worry and not a big deal to us. Exceeded my expectations overall, not having too much experience with a Holiday Inn.
The pool was very small, smaller than I thought, but honestly, the kids still loved it! Heavily chlorinated, but is the norm in these hotels. No complaints. Someone was usually re-stocking pool towels, too. Hot tub too, but didn't use it. There is a small fitness center, I also didn't use it, but saw others using it.. treadmills, and bikes, it looked like.
Breakfast was in a separate type of living area, with a couch and tv, and was self serve. The usual yogurts, bananas, cereal, eggs, pancakes, bagels, coffee, etc. Nothing fancy, but good for a free breakfast. The breakfast worker was re-stocking when needed. We saw many people use this room too after breakfast to sit with their families, watch tv, and eat takeout.
Beds were comfortable. TV had an OK amount of channels. Make sure your door is shut when you leave. It's nice the doors don't slam when you shut them, but the 1st time we went down to use the pool, we went back up because we forgot something and the door was open. We thought it had shut behind us, but it stops before fully closing unless you pull it one more time. After that, we were just careful to make sure it shut the whole way and never had a problem going forward.
A few things to note if you are looking online and need certain things. We aren't too picky, but some travellers might need certain things while staying here. I noticed the website stated we would get newspapers every day which we did not, Not a problem to us. I also think if you are on business and need a "desk", then you might want to make sure you are getting this when booking your room. Ours had more of a coffee table near our couch, but no "desk". We had two other side tables, which could work, but just something to note for business travellers. We also did not receive a final bill under our door on the final morning or upon checkout. We did have an email though which worked fine for our purposes, just didn't have a breakdown of the fees. It seems like the staff though would accommodate if you asked for anything.
There are plenty of restaurants near the hotel, 99, Uno's, Tilt'n Cafe, etc. Also, a small, but decent shopping outlet in case you need anything, as well as a Walmart, Shaw's, Market Basket.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel for a clean, affordable, and comfortable place to stay, with friendly staff. We would stay here again, if needed.
