“Nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

In November we drove to Kernersville, North Carolina from Illinois for a funeral. Very nice accommodations. Staff was very pleasant. Parking could be challenging at times, but otherwise very nice. Close to gas, and restaurants. Very quaint little town to visit and hope to return someday.

Stayed November 2014, traveled with family

Location is right next to the off ramp of the highway. The location is showing its age and the rooms could sure use some updating. Has the "old" feel to it instead of more of the modern feel most Holiday Inn Express have. For the price I couldn't complain I guess.

The TV remote would not change the channel (would turn it on/off and control volume). Went to front desk, they gave me another one that still did not work. Returned to the desk again, the clerk was very apologetic and went to another room and got a 3rd remote....it still didn't work. She told me that her manager was still there and would talk to her and get back with me in a few minutes. Never did hear from her again. About an hour and half later my son said something to her as he was going to the car for something and she then asked if we wanted to move to another room. At this point I was settled in the room and did not want to go through the hassle of packing up to move so lived with it. When I tried to plug my computer into the electrical outlet by the bed the cord fell out of both sockets and was arching due to the plug being worn out.

This location could use some serious updating.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway exit ramp.

Stayed here on business for 4 days. At check in it went ok but was not informed about breakfast times etc or any other amenities, petty but still it would be nice since I was a first time guest. Noticed a lot a tailgating from some construction crews in the rear lot late at night. Whoever was on the second floor above was doing a lot running and stomping late at night too. Told the front desk but it took another call or two before it stopped. The bright spot was the rooms were clean and fresh. The breakfast bar each morning was good and the attendant Ms.Mary, was hilarious and funny. She was awesome and really cared about her guests. I will be returning next month on business again, hopefully things will a little quieter inside and out.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel with some friends of ours before we headed to the NASCAR race in Martinsville, VA the next day. Check in was quick and easy and they gave us a recommendation for dinner (OutWest Steakhouse), which was a very good choice. Our room was clean overall. There were a few spots on one of the sheets, but I didn't think it was a big deal since the rest of the room was very clean and I knew they weren't blood or anything like that from my experience working in the hotel industry. We had some noisy people across the hall from us that were also smoking in the hotel, but the front desk staff handled the situation very well when we reported it in the morning. Breakfast was good and well stocked. Overall, I would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: There is only one elevator and it is at the front of the hotel. It didn't bother me, but others...

We stayed here while painting our house. The location is between Bus 40 and I 40 off of route 66. The hotel isn't very big, only two stories. The parking lot is small and in a strange layout. There is only one way in and one way out so if you pass the only available space you'll need to either back up or circle all the way around again. There is only one elevator at the very front of the building so if you have a lot of luggage I would suggest requesting a room near the entrance or near the elevator. We stayed in a room with two doubles and again there was a bit of a strange layout. As soon as we walked in the room we found the sink/mirror/hairdryer to our immediate right as we entered. The toilet/shower was behind a closed door to the left and the rest of the room was laid out as usual. The room itself was clean and comfortable with excellent mattresses and linens. There was a large mini fridge and a nice sized flat screen TV. The thing about the sink that bugged me was one night I stepped out to get a soda from the vending machine while my friend stood at the sink brushing her teeth in her night gown. Thankfully no one was passing by but had there been they would have seen more than she would have liked. Unfortunately we overslept the breakfast everyone else seems to be raving about. One other thing was that while they do have free WiFi they didn't give us the code automatically upon check in and so I had to call the desk to get the code. Not only that but the code changes each day so we had to call back to get the new code. Overall I would say this is a very clean, comfortable hotel and would recommend it for a short stay.

Room Tip: Ask to be near the entrance or elevator if you have lots of luggage as there is only one elevator.

One of the best if not the best breakfasts in a hotel ever. Everything you could want. And spotless. What a wonderful lady and so helpful and full of joy. If you are traveling her way she (Ms. Mary) is worth talking to and she will make your day, Thank You so Much Ms. Mary. We really enjoyed talking with you.
