Great Little Hotel!

This is a perfect place to stay if you're in the Durham area. It's practically around the corner from the University of New Hampshire, which is great if you have a UNH student, like I do. In fact, with parking always a problem on campus on big weekends like Family Weekend of Homecoming, you can even walk to campus from the HIE. The hotel is always spotless with extremely comfortable beds and pillows. The free breakfast and free internet are big pluses, too. The staff couldn't be more courteous and helpful and are available 24/7. Great restaurants and shopping are just a few miles away. Bottom line, I've stayed here at least 7 times in the past year and I highly recommend this pleasant hotel.

Lies, Lies and more Lies!!

I went here with 14 little cheerleaders for a cheer competition at the Whittemore Center. Great location, just down the road. But what a HORRIBLE NIGHT!\n\nThey told me they have a pool...nope, no pool.\nThey told me they would put us on the same floor...nope, all over the place.\nThey told me they would have cots...nope, not a one!\n\nTo top it off, I booked rooms with 2 queens in each room, nope - got rooms with 1 queen in each! It was absolutely the worst experience I have ever had.\n\nThe manager wouldn't even bother to talk to me...he left it to the teenage kid at the front desk! Nice! \n\nDo NOT stay here...absolutely horrible service and this manager should be fired!!
