I couldn't believe with the number of children under 5 that I saw in this hotel how quiet it was. Well, in the morning the parking lot is empty and if you return after 8pm, it's full. At least this seems to be the summertime flow. The place is new and clean. Even though it is on a non-scenic main drag, you can easily walk the 3 blocks into the quaint town. We got a room looking into the woods - was darker but not facing the Dunkin Donuts next door..... Ate breakfast (included) once - again, a scene of many young children running about and crying but a decent spread. We tried to go to the pool when we thought all children had left but it was locked. We were told it was closed due to "a child losing his stomach in the pool. It will reopen tomorrow". I am guessing that happens all the time. Recommended for: families with children who want to have access to beach/town.

very comfortable; great location in Exeter- near restaurants, school. Great staff; enjoy the late afternoon freshly baked cookies. Near beach side community. Easy parking; close to highway. Have stayed there many times (at least 4-5 times per year) and room always clean, quiet, comfortable. Plenty of pillows; clean bathroom. Wifi works well

Wonderful experience at this hotel. Staff was very helpfull and professional. Breakfast very good,coffee all day, pool very nice, and clean rooms. I would go back. Would be nice if outlets and beach were alittle closer, but otherwise very good.

a more pleasant welcome and offer to assist would be much nicer to want to come back to this hotel. The accommodations do not lean to a guests situation. but other wise the establishment was well groomed.

The room that we had was very clean and had plenty of room for the three of us. We had come to N.H. for a funeral. The front desk staff was very helpful. We had gone down and asked where there was a good place to eat and they were right on with their suggestion. The breakfast was very good and plentiful. I would gladly recommend this hotel to family and friends.

this was our second trip to this site during the summer (2012 & 2013)...we enjoyed the previous stay and this one did not disappoint...staff, facilities and location are excellent. For example Exeter has much to do on it's on, but site is also hand to I95 and NH 101 and therefore an easy drive to NH beaches. We highly recommend Hampton Inn Exeter, NH!

We recently stayed here for a night en route home from a vacation trip.

On the plus side: As one would expect, the room was spacious, clean, and generally nicely appointed. The bed was an excellent, comfortable king; the large screen TV was one of the very few we've ever seen that was properly adjusted (!) and offered sharp, properly proportioned images; there was an internet connection (not used by us); and there were two chairs in the room. The staff were courteous and helpful.

On the down side: I was surprised to find cardboard cups in the bathroom, instead of glass or even plastic. We were awakened around midnight by some woman in the hallways screaming at someone about "getting outta here..." and "I'm not taking this s*** any more!" Not a pleasant thing, and one reason why we usually stay at B&B's instead of hotels!) Breakfast was seemingly terrific -- until one looked closely. The "bacon" was like overcooked cellophane and the eggs were lumps of something resembling eggs. Thankfully, there was also fruit, hot oatmeal and other cereals, the ubiquitous waffle machine, yogurts and more.

Would we stay there again? For $200+, not if we had a choice, but we had been unable to find a B&B in the area that weekend.

We find B&B's generally preferable to hotels. Less noise, much better breakfasts, and usually rather interesting surroundings, hosted by nice folks who often are the owners and are therefore truly caring.
