“Great place, will come again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2011

We are on night 3 of this place and so far everything has been spectacular. I am with my wife and 2 children and we are having a fun time. There are plenty of places to eat around here and there are theaters within driving distance. There is also the North Carolina Zoo which is an hour drive. Only thing I do have a problem with is the internet. You have the option for internet during your stay for $4.99. That is a good deal but the speed is very slow. Forget watching netflix or youtube. For those of you who know speeds the download and upload speed is .25 Mbps. I know internet is not that important but we watch netflix and it is barely manageable with these kind of speeds. Other than that this place is great for an extended stay hotel.

Horrible smell as soon as I walked in the door. People screaming and hollering at all hours of the night. Police came at one point to break up a fight. Floor was probably more comfortable than the bed.

I made a reservation through CrosslandStudios.com for 2 nights. It was confirmed, and I had a print out of the reservation. I flew to NC, and drove from Greensboro to Durham. I arrived in Durham and went to the hotel, only to be told that they were totally full. There were no rooms available. I had nowhere to stay. I ended up driving to Morrisville and paying $139 for a room for 1 night, although I had a reservation at Crossland for approx $90 for the 2 nights.

Crossland Studio is one good choice when you are planning to visit RTP , Durham Raleigh NC. The first question that pops up in our mind why to choose this hotel. Here are couple of reason to choose the hotel.
- You will get room with small kitchen area , a perfect option in case you like to make your own breakfast or food.
- Food Lion ( A food Mart ) is at walking distance , You can buy eatery from it and make your own food. Or you can visit golden coral resturant which is front of it.
- If you are visiting Cisco systems ( True in my case ) then its again a best choice. Cisco is only 4 miles from hotel.
- You have ATM close to Food lion , You may need it in case you are foreign visitor.
- You will also get ABC in case you are planing to buy some wiskey :).
- All major spots are close to Crossland .Like Southpoint mall, Best buy is olny 6 miles away.

Its one good option at under $50 perday. The hotel give you most of things you need,but there is no additional service. Housekeeping happens in seven days. Although you can change towel and bedsheet from reception.

One things I don't like about their service was that they don't even provide drinking water. Which I think can be added to normal service.

They charge $4.5 for wifi . You can use it throughout your stay. Service staff are good and they don't bother you. You will get your privacy and peace.

Its good choice for those you want to save some money and ready to do most of service on their own. Its a peaceful location and close to most of important place.

This was my second stay here and both times were great. Not a bad place for the moderate price paid. Room was neat and clean, although a little small. But okay for one person. Laundry room was available and machines in working order. Less than a mile from I-40 interstate. TONS of eating placing to choose from, including a Golden Corral directly across from the facility's parking lot. Banks, gas statiions, a grocery story and more are all within several hundred feet of the place. Staff, especially Jasmine, were very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay her again!

I just stayed here a couple of nights ago and it was just "ok." I usually stay in Comfort Inn/La Quinta- type hotels and have pretty reasonable expectations. This hotel is convenient to the highway and hotel, but the rooms are very small/cramped and the first one we were taken to reeked of smoke! Fortunately, they were able to move use to a non-smoking room. The office staff is not always in and sometimes you just have to wait until they come back and the outside door is locked. The hotel was pretty noisy and I would ONLY suggest staying here you are on a very strict budget and don't care much about the comfort of the beds or property overall.

Next time, I would pay a liitle more for La Quinta, which is right up the street.
