So we went to make our second trip to North Carolina for NCAA basketball fever for March Madness 2008. My wife and I shared a king suite with a friend and we had an adjoining room with a friend and her son. Our room cost only $75 per night! This was an excellent bargain considering its location and the overall experience we had.
Our initial check-in was not as great but the service from that point on was terrific. At this value we were only expecting a comfortable place to rest our head for 4 nights. What we received was much more. Our room was comfortable and had 1 TV. Note that our friend and her son had 2 double beds and had 2 TVs. That suite cost a little more ($80 I think).
The parking lot was in terrific shape and everything in the hotel was clean. The breakfast area was small considering the number of people staying there. Many guests just sat at a table all by themselves and read a newspaper while people were struggling to stand and eat. The food was okay, but given the value of the room it was fine.
This hotel is very close to the airport if flying in. We liked the location to RBC Center and when I-40 was jammed we had easy access to alternate routes. We also easily found grocery stores and many places to eat. We enjoyed going twice to Duke including Duke Chapel for Easter worship. For shopping this hotel was very close to the Streets at Southpoint which was a newer upscale shopping mall. Lots of pkaces to eat. We ate at Champps and enjoyed watching basketball live on their big screen tvs. There was also a Starbucks nearby.
This hotel does not have many reviews, but I will definately stay here again when I return to the area. Oh, the pool was crowded with children much of the time we were there and the exercise room only had a couple treadmills.
