This is a good place to stay, long or short term if you are working in RTP. However if you want to explore the broader Durham/Raleigh/Chapel Hill area you really need a car as public transport is not an option. I stayed for 10 days with my family and while I was at work they were looking for things to do but the shuttle doesn't take you to the Malls or nearby towns and attractions during the day, so they were a little isolated as not much close by to do/see.
The hotel itself is very good, rooms were clean and roomy although the kitchen very basic, lots of services (providing breakfast AND dinner a bonus) and the staff very friendly and helpful, who in my case was important as they made my wife and sons feel very welcome and helped them enjoy their stay. Happy to recommend especailly if the purpose of the visit is working at RTP.
