For this price point, I was pleased with how clean and updated the rooms were. This hotel is right off of a highway and tucked behind 2 fast food restaurants. I had to make last minute reservations for my family and I over a holiday weekend. I did use the out door pool one evening and it was also very... More

We had five rooms here for my daughters graduation from Duke University. The hotel staff were very accommodating to all of us. The breakfast staff did a great job keeping the breakfast supplied and were friendly. The beds were comfortable. The check-in staff were helpful. The only thing I can complain about is we all thought the pool would be... More

Was passing by and visiting family in the area. At night the property is a little difficult to see from road as it sits behind a gas station and a fast food business. The lobby had a scent of cigarette smoke but the non-smoking room did not have that smell at all. The breakfast room was large and easily can... More

Dear Mike P, Thank you for your review! I wanted you to know we have moved our ash urn for smoking a little further away from the front entrance of the hotel. I am hoping that will eliminate the smell you experienced in the entrance. Thank you for the great comments about our breakfast we have recently updated a few... More

While I already completed a review of this hotel about a year or two ago (which tells you I have repeatedly returned), I have to do another review to include some comments regarding my stay last week. I had the misfortune of traveling to this area during one rare and area crippling snow storm. Management stepped up and brought in... More

Holiday Inns just don't get wireless. They think that if it works when one person is testing it that it will work when 30 are trying to use it at the same time (bandwidth). They don't realize that every time you stop using your iPad you don't want to have to log in again when you pick it up again... More

Seems brand new but maybe just a remodel. Clean! Brightly lit. Beds comfortable. We had an early morning one day due to people across the hall checking out with kids......really noisy kids! When I went to find out if they were really checking out and told the desk attendant why I was asking, she took ten dollars off the bill.... More

We travelled to Raleigh for the NC state fair, and I thought that I had booked 2 nights. Unfortunately, I only booked one and the hotel was full, so the manager was able to find us a room at this Holiday Inn Express. They took us in before check-in and gave us a nice room. The lady at the desk,... More

I stayed at this location a couple of years ago and was less than impressed. Since then, they seem to have made great strides at cleaning and at friendliness. Like some others have said, the AC is a little loud, but that is the nature of that type of AC where every room is on its own unit. Unlike a... More

Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is good, close to major highways. Price was very fair. Noisy air conditioner in room and limited breakfast options were only negatives.
