We stayed here on our way to Duke. The drive is possible in one day but we chose this based on AAA advice. The hotel is located just off 81. It is in a corner of a mall parking lot. It looked fairly new. We were greeted promptly by a friendly desk personnel. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The room ac is quiet. We had a room on the back side, it faces 81. I didn't notice any noise but keep that in mind if you are easily bothered by highway noise.
The lobby is big. They charge for food. We did not eat there as we felt the prices were too high. $2.25 for a Oikos Yogurt, $7.00 or so for a breakfast sandwich. I don't mind paying a little more while on the road and for convenience but I don't like it when I consider the price out of line with industry standards. Their is a Dunkin Donuts a mile up the road.
