We stayed for the 4th year on the way to the NC beach for AAA of $94 and were very satisfied. It's improved with excellent management: clean and beautiful bedding and breakfast. Especially nice: there was no mold in the Ac filters which is a good find in the North Carolina summer.

This was an overnight stay after a business meeting in Hillsborough. The hotel was renovated, probably within the last year. It appears the renovations were a rush effort or they are still in progress. The hotel still has smoking rooms, so reserve carefully. Cleanliness was not a problem. Breakfast was not the greatest. Warm food was cool or cold.

I travel more than most and find many levels of stopping points. This is one of my favorite locations. The rooms are alway great and the staff is awesome. Easy access from the main freeway. Mrs. Meena always makes sure that every guest is completely satisfied with thier stay. Very good breakfast.

I stopped after riding a motorcycle in the rain for about 300 miles heading for Macon Ga. Check in was great and front staff was excellent. I usually eat at non-chain restaurants while I travel but I was to wet and tired to go out. The front staff offered me some great suggestions. The hotel was quiet at night and... More

We've stayed here several times and always return when in the area. Nice, clean, comfy and very quiet. Sort of hidden away from the hustle and bustle.
