I spent five nights at the Inn for a business trip. I cannot say enough good things about the rooms, the staff and let's not forget the food! Let me start with the room; It was charming with a view of the gazebo and it also had a nice meeting room attached. The room was very clean. I had plenty... More

The parking is excellent and free. The internet is very slow. Quaint? No. My room was as small as it was cramped. I'm not tall, but the shower actually is under the eaves so that you have to bend way down to wash your hair. Uncomfortable. The AC was a noisy plastic window unit that blowed directly onto the bed.... More

Spent 1 night on a romantic retreat. Room was small but very nice. The main lobby was lovely and there was a nice sitting area outside with a gazebo. I would like to return in the future and actually walk around the hotel to see the architecture because what I saw was beautiful. There is a bar and restaurant onsite... More

Very charming Inn located right in the center of Exeter. Had the feeling of an old school house. Rooms were nice, bathrooms were very modern and updated. Tea and cookies available at the front desk when you check-in. Would definitely come back.

Very nice inn although small. Bar was only open until 11:30 so when we came in from movie everything was closing down. Bathrobes and slippers are provided along with turn down service. When we arrived the person who would be taking care of us, brought up a few cookies (delicious). Bathroom is very small, didn't have shower door and no... More

In my culture there is a saying “you put your foot in that one” meaning the dish left you happy and satisfied. That is how I felt staying at the Exeter Inn.

We stayed at the Exeter Inn while visiting PEA - the location can't be beat! Large room (king with sofa bed) and a nice updated bathroom. Breakfast at Epoch was great the following morning. Desk clerk was pleasant and helpful, and the cookies at turndown were a nice touch. Would recommend.

An old historic hotel next to the Exeter campus. Overall a very nice bathroom and a quiet room. I was off-put by the very small room and the virtually non-existent fitness area. The staff was friendly.
