The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and the staff aimed to please! The breakfast bar was well stocked and had a very good selection, pleasing both adults and children. It was easy to find and close to both restaurants and gas stations.

As with others, this HIX offers good value. It is a nice clean room with a comfortable bed and all the necessary room amenities. Free breakfast includes eggs and 1 meat. I would prefer catsup and hot sauce to be available. Worst problem for me was they offer no "same day" laundry service, but price for laundry was great. Not... More

We have stayed at this hotel when visiting the Raleigh - Cary North Carolina area. It is right on the Highway 40 / Highway 42 exit so it is very easy to access off of Highway I-40 via Exit 312. Since it is only 8 minutes from nearby shoppes in Garner, NC White Oak Shopping Center and 10 minutes to... More

Very clean, modern hotel. Great breakfast and room. Comfortable bed, nice TV, great furnishings and bath. Manager was awesome! Let us see and inspect our room prior to booking. Very helpful and accommodating. Could not have ask for more. Great service! Great value, will stay again. Highly recommend! Ranks right up there with more expensive hotels.

Stayed here Nov 10. Rooms were clean. Heater did not work properly, very loud noise. No wash cloths. Alarm clock did not work. Wake up call button on phone did not work. Finally, no ability to print boarding passes. Not terrible, location has many restaurants, some within walking distance.

We've stayed in one-star hotels and five-star hotels and the Holiday Inn Express is squarely in the middle. Check-in was not as smooth as it might have been. We visited Raleigh for a college graduation and several major universities in the Research Triangle scheduled their graduations for the same weekend. We arrived a little after 11:00 pm and had to...
