Stayed here twice before. First time was very good. Last year we had an issue with the room smelling musty. I commented on the smell here on tripadvisor and received an email from the hotel representative asking my room number so they could correct the problem. However, we had the same issue this year. If they solve that musty smell... More

I stayed one night here after a long motorcycle ride. The price was good and the hotel staff was friendly. My room was large, the bed comfortable, the towels were clean. Now to why my title says what it says. Excuse me while I rant. At twelve a night, I had to put up with banging doors, running up and... More

I just returned from a trip to the Raleigh area for a job interview. Unfortunately my trip coincided with a major snow/sleet storm that crippled the area for a few days.

We stayed at this HIE a number of years ago, so knew how to find it despite its twisty-turny out of the way entrance. We were very impressed with the refresh done since the last time we visited. We also appreciated being asked which floor we'd like to stay on. The room was very comfortable and thoughtfully put together, including... More

Stayed here for a holiday family get together and it was quite nice. I absolutely must commend Mercy at the front desk for being so extremely helpful and accommodating when it turned out we had to bring our two small poodles with us at the last minute.

Staying at this hotel is a very pleasant experience. The bed was comfortable, the room was large and clean and the big flat screen TV had free on demand movies. The breakfast was a little disappointing, only because we've had better variety at other hotels in this chain, but it was certainly adequate. The helpful staff made our stay even... More

We stayed here one night. It was a little hard to find but nice and peaceful once there. We had free wifi and a nice breakfast. Staff was very nice. There were several dining choices near by which is always a plus after traveling all day.
