Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by collegemom5000 Friendly service
Staff was excellent and friendly but the room was not clean. Bathtub was stopped up because of hair in the drain (not mine). Heat was also difficult to regulate.
Breakfast was great - loved the pancake maker

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by teach585 Good place to stay
The room was clean and very comfortable. Bathroom was clean and everything worked. No issues with anything being broken or in need of repair.
For Holiday Inn Express--on the higher price side (As is the rest of Keene)--always a frustration.
They have a program where you put out a sign if you want clean linens. As I was only staying 2 nights--didn't need any, so didn't put out sign. I did not realize that that meant that they would not make up the room, spot clean as needed, refresh coffee, etc. It looks as if they never entered the room after one night. I won't make that mistake again.
OK location. No restaurant adjacent, but Applebees within reasonable walk.

Everything was wonderful. We stayed there on a very busy weekend, full hotel. Yet all amenities were in place, service was excellent, and the staff was very accommodating and very friendly, personable.
A great place to stay in Keene!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LemonLime1 consistently clean and comfortable
I have been staying at the Holiday Inn Express Keene, NH for the past two months once a week because I am attending graduate school in Keene, NH. The Holiday Inn has been consistently clean and comfortable and the staff have been friendly and accommodating (even when I ask to change rooms). The breakfast is fantastic and I look forward to the cinnamon buns every week!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mandingo27 Front Desk Staff Went Above and Beyond
I can't say enough good things about the front desk staff at the Holiday Inn Express Keene. I had to call the desk a few times prior to check in; first to inquire about changing my reservation, then to actually make the change and request an early check-in, lastly to confirm my early check-in request. Each time I called, the person at the desk was friendly, helpful and attentive. When I arrived, Sharon greeted me and remembered me from my earlier calls. She got me into my room quickly and at the time I had requested. Once in my room, I received a call about 15 minutes later from the desk making sure that everything was up to my standards. I have stayed at hotels at every price point and never before have I had someone be so proactive about my satisfaction. About an hour later my phone rang again; it was Sharon again. When I was checking in, I had told her that I was in town for a wedding and would be taking a shuttle to the venue. The shuttle called the front desk to say they would be late and Sharon, remembering i was taking the shuttle, called to let me know. The staff here goes above and beyond for their customers and I would stay here over any other hotel in town!

I came to visit my grandchildren that live in Winchester, NH. So I decided to stay this Holiday Inn Express. It was close by for traveling purposes to see my grandchildren. We had a great time with them. So thanks to Holiday Inn. Everything was excellent the service and the breakfast buffet was very delicious. I will stay here again.

We were very satisfied choosing Holiday Inn Express.
The staff we interacted with were very friendly and helpful.. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and it was always well stocked.
The room was clean and comfortable but we prefer having the bathroom facilities combined rather having the sink separate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaTraveler Older Hotel but very comfortable
We stay at this hotel several times a year while visiting family in the area. The hotel is older than many HIE but it is comfortable, the staff is nice, and the pool is a nice addition, especially in the winter. Their new breakfast area is a bit tight in the seating area. It would be much better if they would re-arrange the tables and the small 3 chair lounge area so that people can get through when other people are sitting.
The rooms were generally clean; although the cleaning was at times inconsistent. It would be nice to see this hotel upgraded to match the facilities at the Merrimack, NH HIE.

We're not soccer experts but we did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night!! We were here for a college soccer tournament in early September and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Great staff, super location, comfortable and clean room and great breakfast to start our day. Thank you HIE for keeping us on our game!

My husband and I came into town for one night to go to a wedding. During our stay my husband was bit by a spider and we proceeded to capture two more in our room. Needless to say sleeping that night was not even close to an option.

Happy to find this clean and convenient hotel in Keene. As a long time rewards member - not happy that they raise their prices for Keene State event weekends. They more than double. That stinks.

We stayed in Room 215 and were awakened at 4:00 am by a large and noisy compressor outside our window. It was a nice evening so we and others slept with our windows open. The next 30 minutes consisted of other guests waking up and closing their windows as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Biker429 Good experience - one issue
While we were only staying one night and had to get up early the following day, I thought I would still write a review. The check in process went smoothly and the staff was friendly. The rooms were clean. The problem we encountered was the room did not have a curtain you could close and the street lights were brightly shining in the room. We had to find a rubber band from the car to tie it up. Never have we seen this in a hotel. Normally the curtains are drawn back but they move to cover the window.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tomwood Not Happy with response
Booking process went well and received confirmation e-mail. Booked one night stay for 2 rooms. Stay & rooms were fine. When we received the bill it was for 20$ more per room than confirming e-mail. Spoke with desk person about this and he did his best to help me but was unable to do so. Day shift desk person arrived & was made aware of the issue and said it would be taken care of & I would be receiving a confirming e-mail, which I have not gotten as of 5 days later. Just hoping my credit card reflects the original quoted price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CPandEL lovely all around
We stayed here for 4 nights recently and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel other than to sleep and grab breakfast, but our room was very clean, quiet, comfortable, and well appointed, down to the electrical outlet built into the bedside lamp. And the staff were all very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Breakfast was pretty nice -- with eggs, pancakes, bacon, bagels, and other goodies available -- though I'd always prefer stronger coffee and healthier eating choices. (We eat organic and unprocessed food at home, and I don't consider Activia yogurt a particularly healthy alternative.) Very nice stay overall. Will definitely be back when we're in the area again next summer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Greggie Problems
Upon our arrival we were told that our credit card was not accepted. The Manager tried it again and it still did not work. We gave him my wife's credit card and the same thing happened. We then gave him a different card and it worked. We decided to call the credit card company and we were told that the account had been locked. We asked why and were told that the hotel manger had put in the wrong expiration date. IN fact all three tries were different but none matched the actual expiration date. It took us about twenty minutes on the phone with the credit card company to resolve the issue.
Second issue we had was the fact the swimming pool was very, very cold. Our grandson's lips were blue by the time we he had got out of the pool. We had specifically asked when making reservations if the pool was working. Unfortunately we failed to ask if the pool has heated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fred601 Overall experience good
The TWO wedding parties on Saturday night made loud noises well into the night and kept us awake. Even personally complaining to the people celebrating didn't stop them. Complaining to the manager on duty had no effect on the noise level. . .As compensation, we were given a discount on the room rate, but still the disruption should not have been allowed to continue.
Previous stays at this Holiday Inn Express have always been pleasant with no such problems as occurred this trip. We know this will probably not happen again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BizTravlr945 Thin Walls + Noisy neighbors + No Help = No Return
Thanks to the thin walls of my room I got to listen to my neighbor's phone conversations from 11:30 to 1:30 a.m. At that point I knocked on my neighbors door to let her know someone was next door and ask her to keep it down. 15 minutes later, just as I was finally getting to sleep, the hotel desk called up to me, asking me not to bother my neighbor! Won't be returning.

We were on a seven night trip and spent two nights in Keene for a wedding. The lobby was disrupted by floor resurfacing. The breakfast area was the least desirable setting of any HIE and we have visited many over the last eight to ten years.
