An older place, built in 1932, they say still it was updated and in a good location. Good staff and good service. I would stay there again if I passed through again.

Perfect stay with quality touches

Pros: The character and service.
Cons: n/a
Location: PEA is a stroll down the street. 3 more minutes puts you on the town's main street where there are charming boutiques, coffee shops, and the river.
I needed a hotel for one night near Exeter Academy, and this was all I could have hoped for and more at a great price!

Nice hotet great food

Pros: Close restaurants
The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, the food in the resturant and bar was exceptionally done. The main resturant is closed on Sunday night so only the bar is open for food. The rooms were quite comfortable, although I did find a few ants in my room. I would definately would stay here again.

understated luxury

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This was a very nice hotel with excellent service. Ours was a dormer room with a large bath, two queen beds that were very comfortable, and wonderful touches such as robes and warm chocolate chip cookies. We would certainly stay there again. (Please drop the hand-written sign out front!)

Old world charm meets modern updates, and cutting-edge dining.

Pros: fine dining
Cons: rooms small
My wife and I hate the new breed of whitewashed, bland, cheap-feeling hotels that seem to be popping up all over the place. We won't stay in them. We greatly prefer hotels that have some history and charm, but that have been carefully and lovingly updated to meet modern needs — that is what you get at the Exeter Inn. We stayed at the Exeter for one night over the 4th of July weekend this past summer and loved it. OK, the rooms are kinda small, but they really are cozy. You get the feeling that they have housed generations of students – and are totally charming in decor. All the original dark woodwork has been kept and improved throughout the inn giving it a very european feel. The requisite modern amenities have been added: exercise room, internet connections, elevator, etc. The restaurant and bar area has recently been redone to a cool but nicely-integrated contemporary feel. The service is top-notch. The food at the restaurant is to die for! The Exeter Inn the the whole package — THIS is what a hotel should be.
