They are in the middle of major renovations. We stayed on a Friday night, so we weren't bothered by construction. We stayed in an updated room. Nice decor. Clean. Bathrooms are average size, maybe a little small. The price was good-$81. I think it will be a great hotel after renovations.

I have stayed in this hotel several times over the last month while doing business in the city. Staff is great, rooms are outstanding and yes its under construction but you don't hear anything and get to stay in a great hotel for a outstanding price. Love it!

Don't pay attention to the recent bad reviews. I got this hotel through priceline and was frightened by all the negative reviews complaining about construction and other things. Not true (at least on my stay on the 4th of July). Construction is going on in the lobby and first floor. This is a problem if you plan on sleeping in... More

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
