I selected this Holiday Inn due to price and location to family I was visiting in Concord. I checked in late and left mid-morning so my overnight was short, sweet and comfortable. The room was very clean, but I have to say for a hotel located outside the city the room was quite cozy (meaning I'd expect it to be...

Having picked up my hire car from the airport, after a flight from the UK, this was my first night in the USA. I was a bit tired as I arrived 6pm (local time) which according to my body was 11pm (UK time). The hotel is located along with several other hotels or varying price and quality just off Highway...

This hotel is very convenient off of I-95 and close to other hotels in the area. Sits in a business type atmosphere. Not local shopping areas but close to a Costco and Home Depot and office buildings. The hotel felt like it was updated just recently. Rooms are smaller but very comfortable and quiet.

The woman who delivered the breakfast in the morning Maria, goes above and beyond to deliver amazing service. Rooms very confortable. On over the top of that we were there in a weekend called snoozapalloza with late checkout and breakfast time. We enjoyed the place visiting Boston located 30 mins from there. Thanks

Upon arrival to the hotel on September 21st evening we realized that we made by mistake in reservation for 3 nights in October 2016 rather than for September 2016. Fortunately, we met Mr. Brad Campbell, Guest Services Manager, who was very kind and show sympathy by finding us an hospitality solution.
