We were in the area for a triathlon in New Hill, just down the highway. Location was perfect for us because we were leaving at 5:30am on a Saturday morning. They were setting up breakfast early, and the staff was nice enough when I asked for milk and a banana. They didn't make me feel like I was inconveniencing them.... More

Great price and location in Apex right off the highway. Friendly helpful staff. nice rooms and quiet. Complimentary breakfast. Near Restaurants. Ask for a room that does not face the road. Pretty lobby.

We stayed for one night in June/2015. A little difficult to find without GPS because of somewhat hidden location. My kids really enjoyed the pool which was clean and well maintained, although small. Reasonable price and friendly staff. We would stay here again.

Stayed here for an event in town. Great service. The front desk called us the day of our arrival to see if we wanted the sofa bed made up for us. The front desk was helpful for suggesting pizza options in the area. J & S New York Pizza delivers to the hotel and has great food. Also check out... More

The rooms are better than some I've been in. A/C seems to be working pretty hard both times I stayed(not very cold). This week room smelled a little moldy. The breakfast is larger than some I've stayed at. Staff are helpful and friendly. Hope u don't have to turn left when u leave

Stayed here for two nights when our air conditioner went out at home. Great stay, very comfortable. The thing that really makes this hotel work is the amazing staff, who are very friendly and took care of our every need -- always greeted us as we came and went, asking about the repair of our air conditioner. The room was... More

Way above average FREE BREAKFAST, includes scrambled eggs, pork and Turkey sausage, pancake maker, usual fruits, cereals, yogurt and Incredible CINAMON ROLLS!

I was very happy staying at this hotel. It is very close to downtown Apex. The downtown area is very old and cute. There is a Walmart right across the street incase you need groceries or anything else. The fair grounds are about 10 miles away as well. The staff was super helpful when we needed to keep about 10...

Dear corey4vws, Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. I am glad your team had a great stay! I agree with you downtown Apex is a great place for dining and shopping.
