The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The front desk staff are very helpful and pleasant . This was my second stay and plan to return on my next visit to the area. The complementary breakfast is enough to start the day!

Over the past 3+ years we have stayed at the HI Express many times while our son was in school at SEBTS. We have seen a steady improvement of the facilities and cleanliness. We are using it as a base hotel for his wedding in August. Looking forward to spending time with family and friends!

We stayed at this hotel for one night and were surprised...more like shocked...what they considered a room with accommodations. We requested such a room given there are safety considerations we have so far as showering with minor disability. Their definition of "accommodations" was "slapping" some safety bars ill placed within the shower which didn't allow for getting in or out... More

I stayed here on Valentine's Day and I was surprised to see the property had been upgraded and it was so stunning! The dining area was so classy and bright. The rooms had some funky colors but they worked. Over all the service was pleasant and professional and helpful with suggestions on where to eat because the bar closed at... More

Wonderful hotel!! Staff is friendly & very accommodating!! Great breakfast room. Nice location to Capital Rd, shopping & restaurants. Request 2nd or 3rd floor-in case there is a heavy walker in room above you.

We booked a King suite for one night after Thanksgiving. The coffee pot was not cleaned out after the previous guest. When we checked in, it had the dried remnants of coffee on the bottom of the glass carafe, and the sealed pack of used grounds were still in the top of the pot. There is no direct access to... More

This is a quiet and beautiful location tucked away in a slightly difficult place to find (not very obvious from the main street) but well worth it. The hotel is nicely appointed and very fresh. If you are looking in the Wake Forest area, this is the place you should stay.

Very nice hotel. Area surrounding it is beautiful. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Front desk went above and beyond to help with anything needed. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Very clean, quiet. I highly recommend this gem of a hotel.

Quiet,secluded property with easy access to main highway. Comfortable room with no issues except the hair dryer didn't heat up which we reported when we checked out and they immediately opened a maintenance ticket. The front desk staff and breakfast lady were extremely friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was an A+ in taste, variety and attentiveness by the staff.... More

Upon arrival we discovered broken lights, so had to fumble to get in to room. Old food was left in the fridge, and the drain in the shower was broken. By the third shower it was over-the-ankle deep. Didn't report as we arrived late and had to leave early. I did send same feedback to the hotel so hopefully they... More
