“Great for staying near Dartmouth College”
Reviewed May 1, 2006

This is the best hotel to stay at while visiting Dartmouth College. It is about a 10-15 minute drive to campus. Rooms are very nice and spacious. Most (or possibly all?) have small frig and miscrowave. Spacious bathrooms with curved shower curtains. Free internet access in hotel lobby business center type room. Free breakfast, workout room. Across the street from VA hospital, near gas station/convenience stores. Large parking lot and also underground parking (great for winter months!).

My family stayed in a one bedroom suite with a small kitchen at this hotel in April 2006. The hotel itself is newer and rooms and bathrooms were spotless. However they seem to have a problem controlling the temperature...when we stepped out of the elevator on the 2nd floor, it felt as though we entered a sauna...it was so hot! We entered our room and had the same problem..it was so hot we could hardly breath. We immediately opened the windows but it didn't help much....we called the front desk and they apologized, but said it was a problem throughout the hotel and they have been working on it since the hotel opened, but can't seem to fix..they just suggested that we open our windows since the A/C was not hooked up yet. We finally got so hot we took our mattresses off the beds and moved them next to the window on the floor (it was 35 degrees outside). We noticed that when we got off the elevator in the morning that the 1st floor didn't seem so warm so, we asked to be moved to the 1st floor...this room was warm but much better than our previous room. We still had to leave the windows open all night..not our favorite thing to do on a ground floor room due to safety issues. The breakfast was OK, free Internet access and small business center were much appreciated.
At 11:01am on our day of departure as we were finalizing packing our things our telephone rings and it is the front desk reminding us of the 11:00am check-out time...it felt like they were trying to get rid of us..I've never had a hotel call me before to remind of check out time?? I would understand if it were significantly after check out time, but one minute, come on. Also on Sunday morning a small church holds it's services in the hotel breakfast area/lobby...that was kind of weird...we felt like we were disturbing them as we were checking out, coming in and out the front door with our luggage, etc....it was uncomfortable. While the hotel is physically very clean and nice, they do have some service issues. We never felt comfortable and welcome during our stay. We will not stay at this hotel again, nor can we recommend it.

We stayed here for 2 nights in October. We requested a king, non-smoking room on the top floor. The room was very large with high ceilings and a skylight. There was a very comfortable sitting area with a sofa, chair and tv. There was also a kitchen area with sink, refrigerator and stove. The king bed was very comfortable, and there was a 2nd tv on the dresser by the bed. This room is great for extended stays, or for those who just like a little more room.

Breakfast was very basic, with muffins, pastries, juice, etc. This hotel is very convenient to the highways, and was a much more affordable choice than the B&B's in Woodstock.

We stayed at this hotel after a family reunion in VT. I was reluctant to book there because of the reputation of the Holiday Inn in CA. But I went ahead and booked for 2 nights and was very, very happy and surprised to find it was just what we needed!! It was easy access, VERY NEAT and CLEAN. The bathrooms and amenities were great! The amenities in the bath were better than the 4star hotels I have stayed at. The "free" breakfast was very good and ample. The staff was always there to lend a helping hand. When I made the reservations I decided to call the hotel and the young gentleman I spoke to was more than helpful and had a wonderful sense of humor which you do not find these days!!

THANKS HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS !!!!

Great spot - agree with others on clean fresh rooms, towels, etc. Relatively new property, and it's clear they invested to build a good one. Very attractive lobby area. Staff is also very good. After I left realized I didn't have my credit card - wasn't sure whether I had lost it or left it at the hotel. They had it waiting for me at the front desk - housekeeping found it and brought it in.

In the middle of a threatening thunderstorm during a New England summer vacation, we had to stop at White River Junction, Vermont, and found the Holiday Inn Express to be the perfect port in a storm. I never thought I'd be writing a rave review about a discount chain, but this place is terrific. Substantial fluffy towels, hip toiletries, cool shower stall. great mattresses, and spacious rooms makes this hotel a winner. The continental breakfast has everything from yogurt to bagels and even the house blend coffee satisfied a coffee snob like me.
