Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbey Great place to stay!
Whenever the rates are good we love to stay. We have family members who live in Rochester, and it is a convenient place to stay. Never had a problem, staff is very friendly. Have been staying there with my husband since they built it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheSnapper Nice Stay But What About Breakfast?
We decided it would be a good place to stop in our travel. Just booked a night there, driving thru the area for our vacation. My room was nice. It was really close to the pool. The area around the hotel was pretty quiet, and there was a convenient store and diner just walking distance from the hotel. Room was nice, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was not what I expected. We called it breakfast via the one man band. First of all, there wasn't much hot food out at all.The one man band plays the same tune all over: grease, grease, grease, and more grease!!! The food was very greasy. Big disappointment! I'm not accustomed to eating meals at the Holiday Inn Express like this!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Holiday Inn Express is consistently Good
In a ten day leisure trip, we stayed at a new hotel every night. The Holiday Inn Express is always a good choice, and we'll stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mvision7m Average price for a good room & good service
Our room appeared and smelled clean but it was a very basic room. A bed, two night stands, a desk & office chair, a lounge chair and ottoman, a dresser, TV and bathroom. No fridge or microwave. The king bed was average to one notch above average in comfort. There was 4 pillows, 2 softer, 2 firmer. The sheets smelled and felt clean as did the towels in the bathroom. Our only real complaint with the room, if you even want to go as far as to call it a complaint, was that we could hear too much noise/activity in the hall, other nearby rooms and stairwell that was also near our room. In the morning I very clearly heard what sounded like someone repeatedly tapping a razor against the sink while shaving. This went on for between twenty minutes to a half an hour so apparently it must have been the wolfman prepping for his long day at the office. The included breakfast was horrible even by average hotel standards. Many items weren't labeled and everything was as bland and tasteless as can possibly be. Next to the fake looking & tasting omlets was what I thought had to be some kind of corned beef hash or something but it looked almost exactly like VOMIT! Just what a freshly shaved, hungry wolfman wants to see or (gulp!) eat to start his grueling day! Everyone that walked up to that serving station made a comment or a funny face when they saw that gunk. I didn't see anyone try it and the weak coffee tasted like dirty water. The hotel staff that I interacted with briefly were very pleasant but my interaction with them was very short lived. This place is middle of the road overall, not the worst but not the best and for what we got charged for the room per night, I expect better and the experience should be better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BaldTechGuy We like this hotel
This was our second stay at this property. It is a bit further away from UNH than we would like, but it is cheaper and has a better rating that the Holiday Inn Express in Durham. The staff is very nice and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. We like the King mini suite, as there is a nice couch to relax on while watching TV. On our first stay, we were on the third floor on the road side. There was some traffic noise in the morning. Our latest stay put us on the first floor away from the road. It was totally quiet. We are on our way by 7AM, so we have not experienced the included breakfast. There a lot of hotels in Portsmith, which is about 10 miles closer to UNH, but their prices are outrageous. We have already booked two more stays at this hotel for the coming months. BTW, one of the hotel staff recommended the Granite Steak and Grill, which is just down the road. We have had two excellent meals there. Highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CanuckinCT We stayed with our dog
Very convenient and great location for the fall foliage viewing. The $50 charge for the dog seems a bit severe but I suppose not all travelling pet owners are so responsible. We put down a blanket on the sofa and another mat on the floor so our dog could rest and not be disturbed. One odd thing was we were placed in a room on the 3rd floor near the elevator bank, which meant there was alot of noise which caused the dog to bar early in the morning. Perhaps at check -in we should have asked about room location - next time. Otherwise, fantastic stay, great hosts and convenient location.

Loved this hotel EXCEPT for the bed. Wow! I guess when ther matress supplier said "Firm." they said "You betcha!!" That thing was a rock!
Otherwise, the hotel was relatively new and very clean. The staff were friendly and attentive. The breakfast was above par for this class of hotel.
The hotel is situated with it's end toward NH Route 11, which gets very busy in the early morning. If' you are a light sleeper I recommend a room at the other end.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rich09 The traveling six
After traveling all day through the seacoast we arrived in Rochester after the spa was closed. Your staff was kind enough to allow us to us it before retiring for the night. Very much needed time to relax seeings that a few of us have bad backs. Thank you. Room was very clean. Breakfast was exceptional. We loved the Cinnamon rolls. YUM. If you are headed to the mountians this is a perfect place to stay with it right off of the Spaulding Trnpk and far enough away that traffic noise wont bother you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nellyann Decent value
This is your average Holiday Inn. When we arrived, one member if front desk was chatting with other guest who appeared to be friends.they blocked the front desk but moved after we excused ourselves. The room is large and clean , but a bit overpriced I feel. Overall, not a bad stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by J5Traveler A great spot to land
I have stayed at this hotel on multiple occasions. I have also had this hotel recommended to my by locals in the area. Very well kept hotel and staff is really friendly and polite.
I often like a hotel surrounded by other businesses because it make finding other stuff easy. Unfortunately there is not a lot immediately around the property that catches the eye. Gas station and small local Mexican restaurant that looks like a 60's dinner on the outside.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Typhakneeb Enjoyable trip
Great comforatble rooms. Pillows could have been better but it was comfortable none the less. My room was right outside the indoor pool which was a benefit and the room was pet friendly. The downfall I saw was more with the area. When I arrived at 9:08PM, EVERYTHING was closed. I hadn't eaten dinner yet and wanted something to eat before cashing it in for the night. I called all the recommended restaurants in the book provided in the room and everything was closed. The lady at the front desk could only recommend Domino's pizza. Not my idea of 'dinner' but it was best the area had to offer. As for the hotel though, it was a great stay and I would definately stay there again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gramma88 Comfortable and accommodating
I have stayed here many times in recent years. Usually because of out-patient surgical procedures and not being allowed to drive myself home afterwards. They are super about doing the check-in early before my procedure so that when I arrive back all they have to do is hand me my key and I can go right to my room and relax.
The only reason I give value a 4 is because in peak times the rate goes up a tad too much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandparents50 Excellence at a great price!
We stayed in Holiday Inn Express, Rochester, NH for 2 nights and would definitely stay again! Rooms were above average in decor and cleanliness. The staff was more than helpful and accomodating with our baby grand daughter.
The breakfast was generous and nicely done.
The pool and hot tub were impressively clean and inviting. I've never seen a hot tub that pristine!
Beds were also comfortable and the "firm" and "soft" pillow choices (labeled on the pillow cases) were a nice touch.
We appreciated the quality that exceeded our expectation for the price.

My only issue with this property is the fitness center. The equipment is not maintained or cleaned. There is no sanitary wipes for the user and the bottled water tank was empty and dirty for me entire stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KateFromCanada Dont be late for breakfast at this Holiday Inn!!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was clean, and well kept. The front staff was courteous and accommodating. The breakfast was similar to what they offer at their other locations, and what you would expect. Unfortunately for us, we arrived about ten minutes of the breakfast closing. We were rushed to get something, as the staff was not replenishing anything (I asked if there was any more bread, and was told that was it) There were about 11 people at the time I was there, each trying to scarf down their breakfast, because at exactly 10 am, things were put away in a span of less than five minutes. The staff was actually taking away the milk when I asked if I could have it for my coffee, and she told me "there are creamers." I appreciate the breakfast is only offered for a specific time, but it was rude to start dismantling the breakfast as people were still standing and serving themselves. I've stayed at other chains when breakfast goes slightly beyond, but have never seen this before. Perhaps a "last call" would have been more appropriate for those who did arrive late, or who were taking their time eating their breakfast. Oh, and a good morning would have been nice as well!
