“THE place to stay here”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Just stayed the weekend and loved the hotel. Was in Keene for the C Demar Marathon (which I also loved). Wife and I were in an upstairs king, interior view (requested a quiet room, which it was - hotel faces the main street in town, which is very cute, but might have been noisy on a Sat. night before the race, and I had to wake up at 5 a.m.). Standard size. Comfortable bed. AC not amazing but functional. Good bath. Staff was excellent - Tucker even called his sister hotel and brought me a driving map of the area when I asked for directions. Other ?s quickly answered. Nice continental breakfast. Great location. Eat at Luccas - 1 block away.

Room Tip: Wife saw the brick walled high ceilinged rooms downstairs - would have been nice.

Wonderful, modern hotel alternative to the box hotels near the highway. I loved the location, step right down the sunny stairs and you are in center of the lovely town of Keene. Rooms were all recently renovated. Staff was helpful and friendly. Gave my stay a local at home feel but with privacy and convenience of hotel ammenities. I stayed in a basement suite, very spacious and not a lot of hotel noise; however, it is in center of town, so the lower level does get some street noise, but that is expected. I'd try an upstairs room as well. Complimentary drinks in the nice lobby starting at 6pm.

Room Tip: Corner basement suite roomy.

We took a spur-of-the-moment trip to Keene from the Boston area over the weekend. My husband found this hotel online and I give him and the hotel a thumbs up! Our room was huge, clean, and comfortable. On the plus side we had no neighbors--on the minus side, we were next to the ice machine. Fortunately all the other guests on our floor went to bed early! The location can't be beat, right in the heart of downtown Keene. We're already planning to go there again for my birthday weekend.

My wife and I celebrated our 22nd aniversary in Keene. We don't recommend the basement rooms. We used points and were upgraded to the two story King room. Nice in that we could walk everywhere. We had dinner across the street and enjoyed a drink and dessert at the Firework's restaurant and even got a coupon from the hotel. In the afternoon you can get drinks at the hotel's bar. Nice New England town and enjoyed the history of the hotel.

We didn't have any street noise either. Bed was comfortable. Two TV's one upstairs and one downstairs.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the basement.

Stayed overnight in this hotel, and while the room was comfortable, there were several issues:
- street noise was very high on that Friday night, and resumed at 5 am the next day. There is no soundproofing and you hear conversations of people in the street as if you were next to them;
- very little water in the bathroom, the hot water came after a few minutes of standing in the shower and the pressure was ridiculously low on the 3rd floor;
- as reported by another reviewer, the bathroom had not been properly cleaned and there was leftover soap in the shower.

I will not return to this hotel which is too expensive for the quality of services.

My teenage son and I stayed at this fun boutique-like hotel to get him to school. Perfect location on Main Street in the midst of restaurants and shops. Our room was upgraded to a 2 story loft with king and pullout sofa, 2 tvs and 2 full baths. Nice for mom and son! Staff was wonderful. Parking not as wonderful but a small negative amidst the overall pleasant experience. Nice choice and coming back in October.

This is a stylish, quiet hotel in the middle of Keene. The room was large, beds VERY comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was generous for a continental spread.
We were in Keene for a wedding and loved the fact that we could stroll around the very electric little shopping district just outside the front door of the Lane.
