“Not up to the high standards of the rest of the chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2011

Hotel looks clean and is very well maintained. The staff is lacking the professional touch expected from the chain. The hotel allows locals to use the pool, including swim lessons. If you are traveling for business and expect to sit and read the paper in the pool area forget about it. It is so noisy you can't enjoy. This happened about 2 years ago, and again this past week. The hotel doesn't care about their overnight guests, only about the quick buck from the locals to use the pool. If you expect to relax and unwind stay elsewhere.

As for a nights sleep the pillows are like liquid rocks. The is no way that the are comfortable. The hotel staff said they are all the same in all rooms. Rooms with a king bed are near (across) from the elevator. The queen beds are little more than a full size.

Room Tip: Bring pillow or ask about something different. Stay away from the elevator room.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2011

I have stayed at numerous Comfort Inn & Suite hotels and each one has been excellent. This property does not disappoint. The hotel is immaculately clean, rooms are well designed and appointed and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast offered a range of foods from eggs, sausage, potatoes to sweet breads and fresh fruit. This is definitely a superior hotel, well managed.

Room Tip: This hotel is quite near the airport, but located on well lighted street with restaraunts.

I have stayed at this place 6 times over the past year and a half and every stay has been great! The free breakfast is actually pretty good.
They do nothing wrong. Very well run hotel.

This hotel was terrific for us with a fly-out time of 6:15 the next morning. It's only 10 minutes to the airport terminals, they not only had a complimentary shuttle, but since it was earlier than their shuttle service was on duty, they hired (and paid for) a cab to take us. Hot, free chocolate chip cookies, snacks, fruits, 24-hour coffee bar. Comfortable enough bed and bedding. Free use of their computer center and printer for our bording passes. And really helpful staff. I really recommend this property!

The hotel was clean, the breakfast had many choices, the lobby sitting area was inviting for all to sit and chat. The staff was excellent with directions both local and surrounding area.
With IRENE around we felt very safe.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

Very good spot for travelers arriving in New Hampshire. Nice newer hotel with lovely clean rooms, comfortable beds, and close to everything. The reception was efficient, friendly, and helpful. The morning breakfast was a little lacking but enough for a quick start and pretty much what was expected for this type of chain. Value for the money spent was more than anticipated and we were satisfied to find a nice spot after a cross-continent flight.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good.
