Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UNHAlum Good location, comfortable bed
Though I did not spend a considerable amount of time in the hotel, staff was friendly at check in, and the room was both clean and a good size. However, I was not impressed that the only curtains in my room were sheer white and my room looked out onto a parking lot (which is fine in and of itself) and into apartment buildings. The thin curtains didn't offer much privacy, nor did they block out light in the morning. The cost for the room, especially given that it was during the summer, seemed quite high. Overall, I would stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by chrisp13 Small, stuffy and no pool
Just because it's the only hotel chain in town doesn't give you a right to cut amenities like a pool but charge more than other locations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris994 Clean ,comfortable, great breakfast
Came into Durham to drop off my child at a UNH summer camp. The hotel is modern, clean and within relative walking distance to campus. Breakfast in the Great Room topped off a quality experience. I plan to stay there again for sure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Curmudgeon Cavalier Good people, Good Value, Good Location
Overall - The front desk folks we exceptionally accommodating in their level of customer service. The same was true of the maid service. It was a good value for the area. It is within walking distance to the university.
Pros- Value; location; clean; front desk staff gave sage advice re: how to navigate the area; Centrally located allowing you to tour Maine (20 minutes away), NH,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UNHAlum03Starboard No gluten free options
I had a very good experience, but had to bring my own breakfast to adhere to low-sugar, paleo, gluten free diet lifestyle. Fortunately, the microwave and refrigerator in-room helped for this! The staff were not educated about proper gluten free options to suggest any to be ordered in advance. I do not have a gluten allergy, just a preference, but this is very troubling for those who actually do have a gluten allergy. There should be more options for dining so that more people can feel comfortable dining at your hotel; not many visitors will be able to bring their own staples.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RrLima GREAT STAFF
They have maybe the best variety of any HIX I have been in for breakfast. Nice selection of breads and Greek yogurt and fruits. Front Desk and breakfast staff also very good and accommodating.
Only downside is the AC units are very noisy and I think they need to have the filters cleaned better as my son and I both had bad allergic REACTIONS after staying here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Code Monkey Very Good Choice
The Holiday Inn Express in Durham, NH was perfect for my needs. It is well-located next to the UNH campus and easily accessible by automobile from local roads.
It is clean, efficient, comfortable, and the staff is friendly and competent.
