Hotwire didn't advertise that this hotel was being reconstructed. While I was placed on a "renovated" floor, the room itself was incomplete, missing closet doors, bathroom hardware, and bathroom lighting. Plus the heat in my room would heat and then the A/C would turn on once the room was at the target temperature..so the room was either cold or hot.... More

This is going to be one of Winston Salem's top 5 properties once renovations are done. It's a former Holiday Inn that's in the midst of converting to Hilton's Double Tree. Rooms are everything you'd expect in a Hilton product and public areas are clean and well kept. Don't let the appearance of exterior renovations deter you. This is a... More

Although the hotel is being totally remodeled it was fine for our two night stay. Restaurant and bar are not open yet. Seemed to be a lack of staff but overall we could put up with the remodeling. This hotel will be a Doubletree in the Spring of 2015. Our room had been partially remodeled, lobby are was very clean... More

Not clean but management did send someone up. They cleaned the waterer was all over out bathroom door off. It was gross. We were not offered another room but were too tired to fight for one. We had our charge taken off though in the morning because it was really not clean and they had to send up a cleaning... More

OK I have not stayed at this hotel, however it is a fall back option for my employer when we can't get into the first choice. Fortunately I was able to get into a different hotel and when I called this one to cancel my reservation they said they couldn't find one. So it all worked out. The person who... More

Found this hotel through a number of different booking sites and it appeared under a couple of different names. It's own website is still there, but directs you to a number to book. I booked through the parent website 'Magnuson Hotels'. What it doesn't say is that the bar and restaurant have closed, the pool is closed and the hotel... More

We booked a Holiday Inn. when we arrived after dark, the sign had been changed so we had to drive around for a while looking for the right place. When we finally checked in, we were told the hotel had changed hands and was under renovation. The lobby was clean and attractive. Not so for the floors with rooms. the... More

We enjoyed our one-night stay at Holiday Inn Winston-Salem. The pool was closed due to renovations but it was still a pleasant stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and they offer a free breakfast.

We made a reservation a month ago for the Holiday Inn. We pulled off the highway and drove around a few minutes looking for a Holiday Inn. We stopped and asked for directions. We pulled in and there was no sign for Holiday Inn but for a University Hotel. It looked like no one was even there. The outside landscaping... More

We were so excited to visit Winston-Salem But it is not owned by Holiday Inn any longer, it's not warm and welcoming. There is no bar or resturant .. The pool I was so looking forward to enjoying is a slim hole.
