I had to get a room while visiting down here. Despite all the negative comments I've seen because of the renovations and the amenities were not available were just fine to me . The room was very clean and very nice. The bed was extra comfortable so sleeping was not s problem. Also the people at the front desk were... More

This is a horrible hotel. It isn't IN a construction zone, it IS a construction zone. There is no restaurant and no pool, amenities required for the 3-star rating they advertise. The parking lot and outdoor area is a mess....sloppy and run-down, then decorated with construction materials. Sketchy group of people having a picnic outside when we arrived. Stereotypical drug-dealer... More

Where to start . . . This will be a very nice hotel in a few months, but at the present time, it just isn't up to par. There was nothing in the reservation site about the hotel undergoing a complete remodeling -- apparently it is owned by Holiday Inn -- and as a result, we walked into the lobby... More

Would be a great hotel if they weren't renovating. All extra amenities weren't available which made it a boring stay for the kids. Rooms were nice and service was sub par. Would like to see it when its finished.

Currently, the hotel is under renovation and none of the ammentities were available. This didn't bother us, but wanted to make others aware if they are interested in booking this hotel. Our room itself was on the 4th floor and appeared as if it was already complete. The bed was extremely comfortable and we all loved the extra pillows. Our... More

This hotel is in a great location if you are visiting Wake Forest University, and has an excellent, not expensive Italian restaurant steps away, but it is kind of shabby. Bed comfortable if you can sleep with the noisy air conditioner rattling on and off. Continental breakfast was adequate. There is just a lot of peeling paint and other aesthetics... More

Receptionist is unfriendly, rude guy who almost screamed at us. 5. We DEMANDS my phone #, is it even legal? 6. There is... More

While the room was OK, the rest of the property was under construction. First, check in kiosk was difficult to find - had to circle the hotel twice and ask a guest for location. Then had to try to manuever the dusty luggage buggy through mud on sidewalk. At least the manager could have cleaning of construction area cleaned daily... More

We read the reviews, but did not realize how bad it was until we got there. There is no breakfast, wifi, pool, restaurant and very very poor maid service. I asked about wifi the whole time I was there and my family of 3 never got it when we were in our room. Instead of breakfast and wifi being offered... More

I ended up, at this hotel, thanks to Priceline. I cannot believe this is a legally functioning hotel. From the moment you walk into the front lobby, you need a hard hat. It is a construction zone. There are very few walls, no flooring, nails all over the ground, giant holes in the cleared area for walking, and so much... More
