I stayed here for one night in a business trip, the hotel is very new everything is super clean and nice. Great free breakfast and the staff was very helpful. The hotel was busy so book early! I'll definitely stay here again in the future on business.

My daughter and I visited Raleigh for a concert at the Walnut Creek Ampitheatre. This hotel was very convenient to the venue. It might not have been the closest - but every other hotel we saw anywhere close to the venue was not nearly as nice. The Holiday Inn was clean, staff was friendly, and the breakfast was great.

I stay at this hotel on almost monthly for business. Without exception, staff here go out of their way to be pleasant, helpful and accommodate a variety of needs. I have yet to ask them for a service they did not provide willingly and with a smile. The hotel is clean and cared for, the breakfast is warm and tasty,... More

We stayed one night before the Raleigh Rock & Roll Marathon event. The hotel was nice and clean. Service was excellent. The hot tub was nice after the race. Staff allowed for us to have a late check-out which was nice. Overall a good place and I would recommend it!

This hotel was not bad. The room was clean, but as soon as I sat down on the bed, there was a little spider. I didn't see any more. Our reservation stated 2 doubles, but we had one king. They would have let us change rooms, but it was late and we were tired. The pillows were awful, Too mushy.... More

It was late at night and we just needed a place to sleep while on a road trip. Although the place was clean and breakfast was decent, sleep was not what we got. We stayed in room 211, a handicapped-accessible suite (which means we overpaid for the room) and were constantly awakened by the noisy elevator. After 6:23 am, it... More
