I stayed here for a recent business trip of 18 nights. I was very comfortable here and the staff were friendly and helpful. This is a typical HI express and you get what you pay for. But I would say that they do it quite well here. The room was always well cleaned, everything worked OK (air con, tv, wifi... More

The staff were, as always when I have stayed at this location, very friendly and helpful. This was my first time in a while, and first in the summer, and there were some issues. The hotel is beginning to show some age. Not sure if there is no AC in the elevator, or if it simply wasn't working, but in... More

We enjoyed our stay for the most part. Room was very clean, modern enough, etc. We felt very safe and secure at this location. It was convenient to our meeting at UNC. What could have been improved was vending. Only 2 drink machines were on 3rd and 4th floor. I had to go downstairs to find that out. When the... More

My husband and I recently stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Not only were the rates good, but we found the rooms to be comfortable & clean.

I stayed here while attending a seminar on the UNC campus. It is a 3-4 mile straight shot. The place was well-kept and staff was friendly. The signage is not great, but it is right next to a Hampton Inn with the same owner. The room was on the small side, but was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was larger... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights. It was a very clean hotel. The only thing even slightly negative I have to say is the housekeeping staff was a little noisy in the hallway the first thing in the mornings. With the complimentary breakfast it was plentiful and filling. They were out of an item and one of the... More

I have stayed here before, so decided to stay again. First of all, this hotel is not easy to find. There are no street signs, and the hotel can not be seen from the main road. There is a large sign for another hotel (H), and the holiday inn express is next to this other hotel. Since I stayed here... More
