“Professional , clean place near RTP”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

I stayed here for 3 weeks, rooms are neat , neatly furnished and well lit . There are many restaurants around this place, Walgreens is across the street. Breakfast and socials were decent. The gym is small but sufficient. I was a bit concerned about security as it is quite lonely around the parking area, there is a security sentry positioned at the entrenched so I guess there is nothing to worry about.

Stayed in two room suite. Immaculate an spacious! Clients to Duke and Raleigh. Wonderful breakfast and helpful and kind staff. A real winner at a terrific price. The kids were also very pleased with the layout as they had their own space to enjoy. Will be back for sure!

Being a frequent traveler, the things most important to me are clean room, nutritious food, and quiet place to relax and work. I really like the kitchen and the appliances provided so I can cook for my dietary needs. It is conveniently located near highway and grocery stores. The staff is courteous and love to interact with guests. They helped out the guests during the snow-storm and even helped scrape snow from my car. In short it is a comfortable stay!!

Room Tip: If you prefer wood view, take the rooms at the very back.

I stay here on a weekly basis for work in the area and it is by far my favorite place to stay in RTP. I like the free breakfast (although I would LOVE if they stocked greek yogurt) and although the 'gym' is literally 2 treadmills, and elliptical and some free weights - it gets the job done.

The rooms are a good size and I love having a kitchen for nights I don't feel like going out to eat. They have pots/pans/silverware/plates/bowls and other various kitchen tools. There is a stovetop, microwave, sink, and fridge/freezer.

The staff is attentive and always provides professional service. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area - especially when looking for more of an apartment-type option.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

On a trip to visit our daughter in Durham, we spent the night at the Residence Inn. The location is ideal right along I-40 and has a Chick-fil-A restaurant across the street. Our 2-room suite was nicely laid out with a small refrigerator (always nice when you're traveling) and the other typical appliances for the kitchen. Everything was clean and modern with plenty of room when compared to similar rooms with other hotel chains. Overall, I was quite pleased with the hotel room and the breakfast.
The only negative point was that we had to be buzzed into the hotel since the front door was locked. If this had been late at night I would understand. However, we arrived at 5:30 PM in the early evening. Made me wonder why they felt the need to have that level of security. The area did not seem like a bad spot. Strange.

We stayed here because we were meeting friends who were there for a longer stay. Even though we were there for only one night. we would tell we liked it. We took the smallest studio--with a queen-sized bed plus a couch. It was definitely big enough and well equipped enough for two. The room was meticulous and contained all we needed with the exception of body lotion. All the personnel we encountered--starting with the front desk clerk--went out of their way to be helpful.

Room Tip: Breakfast is served near the lobby, so if you want a short walk or don't wish to drive, ask for...

The room is beautiful and like a studio apartment. It is spacious and has a full living room area and full kitchen. Granite countertops give a luxurious feel to kitchen and bathroom. There is a large dressing area and bathroom. There is also a desk with wi fi and a table to eat at. Location is not far off highway. Not close to UNC.
