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...

We really enjoyed our stay from check in to check out. The staff were all very friendly. Very nice breakfast more choices than most hotels. Rooms were stocked with everything we needed. Rooms clean and roomy. Bathroom clean but husband would appreciate higher quality toilet paper 😊

We stayed here to visit NC State down the road in Raleigh. The price was better here and it was only a short drive to campus. The hotel was a very good Holiday Inn Express. We are IHG Priority Club members and we are never disappointed In them. The breakfast was included and was good. There was an outdoor pool... More

The Holiday Inn Express in Apex is a nice place to stay. The rooms are spacious, have small refrigerators, microwaves in the room, and rooms are clean. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The free breakfast is good and fresh. Highly recommend.

We stayed here in September and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was very clean, the beds comfortable, and the hot breakfast was more than adequate. I would definitely stay here again! Another bonus is the location-only 5 minutes to a major shopping center containing everything you could need.

I stayed here for five nights with my brother on a fishing trip to nearby lake. The room was very clean. The air conditioner was one of the quietest I have ever experienced. The breakfast was the best free breakfast of any place I have stayed. The woman responsible for handling the breakfast was terrific.
