“Just passing through”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We just stayed here as a staging post during our New England trip, the hotel was ok to the usual Holiday Inn standards however the bathroom was very small and looked dated and in need of an upgrade. It is however well located just off the I-93 highway and opposite the capital building. We arrived at 6 pm in the evening and the town was like deserted.

For a downtown hotel, or any hotel for that matter, you cannot beat the value, even though the breakfast is not included. The location, a short walk to the State House and downtown area, and easy access to the Interstate make the location ideal. I was on business but in the time after work was able to see enough of the city to make the trip better. Internet was excellent able to do Netflix. Rooms clean. Indoor heated pool and Jacuzzi and having said all of that the most outstanding part of the stay was the staff ; the desk, maintenance, housekeeping all very friendly and helpful.

We used Priceline.com to get our reservations. We paid $79 a night, which is about half of the regular rate. The entire three-night stay was wonderful. Checking in late, near midnight, was quick and easy. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the beds were great. The choice of pillows, which were labeled, allowed each of us to select the comfort level we needed. The hotel was very quiet, despite being located between Interstate 93 and Main Street. We ate breakfast three mornings in the restaurant on the main level, which was very nice. Checking out was easy, since the amount we paid was to Priceline. We would definitely stay here again!! The only negative point is the speed of the wireless internet. I have seen turtles run faster...

Room Tip: Choose a room away from elevator and/or vending machines. There are plenty of places to eat within a...

We slept in the Holiday Inn for one night and we were completely satisfied. The rate was very decent and we got vouchers for the breakfast for free. There is enough parking space in front of the hotel for free and to the Capitol it is only a 3-minute walk. We were a little bit concerned about the bad reviews here but very positively surprised when we arrived. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Our room was spacious and cozy. We felt very comfortable. They offer a big variety of toiletries and if you miss something, the front desk will bring it to your room immediately. Internet is available for free and fast enough for checking mails. Our beds were very comfortable and we had a peaceful and relaxing rest there. The room was very clean and we can really recommend this place.

The restaurant in the hotel serves excellent pizzas and the breakfast is also delicious. Staff is very friendly and funny.

Convenient location as it is right off the interstate. The beds are terrible for those with a sensitive back. There is free Wifi, but slow. We tried to adjust the air conditioning and in the process turned on the heat which in turn set off the fire alarm in the room. The smell of smoke after was disgusting, obviously there was a lot of dust accumulated! Room was large (2 Double beds) and bathroom was clean.

Wifi is free, but runs about .3 to .4 Mbps. Your 3g phone is at least twice that. You can check your email, but for a Webex or skype meeting, or trying to get some work done ... it is a real drag. Forget about trying to stream a video. I come to Concord 8 or 10 times a year, booking with Priceline. I get a good rate, and about half the time it is here and the other it is at the Courtyard. Whenever I take HI's survey, I comment on the slow wifi. It would be simple enough to fix ... if they cared. For business travel, you're better off at the Courtyard

I stayed here after using one of the "name your own price" websites and selecting a 3 star hotel. I had a sense I'd end up at the Holiday Inn, which turned out to be true. Having read reviews here and elsewhere, I had some trepidation regarding this hotel. Turns out my fears were unfounded.

The front desk staffer that evening was particularly friendly and helpful. With a street festival going on one block away, she asked us if we'd mind the noise (which turned out to be none). In addition, she gave us a nicer room with a pullout couch at no additional charge, which I wouldn't have expected since we had already paid for our discounted room at a savings of 50%.

The location is excellent, right in downtown Concord, making access to area restaurants easy.

The rooms have been upgraded. I had read reviews of people saying rooms were old and had tube TV's. Well, not ours. It had a newer 42" flat screen and modern furnishings.

The hotel wasn't perfect. While the room was updated, the bathroom door and door knob were probably original to the hotel (every older hotel does this. They renovate the bath, but leave the old door) giving a sign that all was not new. Bed was decent, but not "heavenly" as is often described with competitors. The pool was very nice size, however, the area around the pool could use a fresh coat of paint and general updating as some areas where looking a little ragged. Lobby, while clean, looked a tad dated. Not horrible, but not quite up to par. I could hear a conversation through the connecting door, though again, I've had the same experience elsewhere (including the hotel I'm staying in tonight which is nearly brand new and is much worse insulation-wise).

Would we stay here again? In a heartbeat, especially if the room is discounted. Location was great, room was good sized and staff was friendly. Don't let the negative reviews sway you. Just don't expect it to be brand new.

Room Tip: Select a discount website and request a 3 star room in Concord, NH
