Decent hotel, marginal service.
Have stayed at this property many times. Kind of basic hotel, but very convenient to UNH. Never had a complaint (except for the minimal parking) until now. We checked in after a long day at the school with kids. The employee behind the counter never asked for a credit card - room was already paid for on We were tired and didn’t even notice. About an hour later (as we were resting) the front desk called our room to say they needed a credit card. We said we’d be heading out to dinner in the next few hours and would stop by the desk. About half an hour later, someone knocked on our door offering to take our credit card downstairs, run it for us, and return it. Not comfortable giving a stranger our credit card, we said we’d prefer to stop by on our way out. They pushed back a bit, but my husband was firm. When we did stop by the desk shortly thereafter, the manager on duty said that she was sorry for the confusion, but that the credit card we presented upon check-in had been declined! They’d never asked for a credit card upon check-in! And they announced this in front of other guests standing at the front desk! The whole thing was the employee’s mistake. That’s fine. But then to harass us in our room, and try to make it out as a problem with our credit card is inexcusable. We will stay here again, because it’s so convenient, but will look for other options whenever possible.
