“Convienent & excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We stayed in this hotel for one night while passing through on our way home from Florida. We chose this hotel based upon the cost and the reviews. It was by far the best "cheap" hotel that we have ever stayed in. I think it was recently remodeled, which probably helped, but regardless, the room was very clean, smelled fresh and the bed was nice and comfortable. We brought our 1 year old and dog, and both of them were comfortable as well. No, there is not continental breakfast, but the coffee/tea and muffin were great to tie us over until we went out for breakfast. In my mind, I'd much rather stay in a nice room then eat a crappy breakfast anyway. We'd highly recommend you book here for an affordable, comfortable night's stay! :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the Superior King...the bathroom was huge, shower was great and lots of space in the ac...

Thank you so much for the great review!

I stayed at this hotel over the holidays. Love the renovations. It was in a great location for us. Shopping and dining was nearby. It always is a plus when the staff is friendly and helpful. Thanks for everything.

Please accept my apology for the delay in responding to your review. First of all let me thank you for the kind words especially since we have not been renovated yet (next month) and like many folks who have let us know what good shape the property is in for never having had a full renovation. We are very excited about the new rooms and hope you will come back and stay with us again and have a "fully renovated hotel". The staff thanks you for commenting on the service you received, we try very hard to have our guest feel welcome and at home.

I hope to have you as a guest again in the near future!

Stayed here for 1night on our way north to DC. No complaints at all. Room clean, bed comfy, shower hot. Easy 5 minute drive to downtown. Just off the highway but very quiet. Excellent value for money! Would definitely stay here again.

So pleased to see that you had a great stay my staff and myself try to offer clean rooms at a great rate and make our guest feel at home.

Thank you for the review, I hope to have you as a guest again.

Stayed at this hotel for one night to avoid the 2 hour drive back home after enjoying Raleigh's downtown night life (which is modest).
The staff at the front desk was perfectly friendly.
The room was average; the television had adequate number of channels (news/movie channels).
The wifi in the room worked great with no issues.
The bathroom and bedroom were both clean as were the sheets.
This hotel was certainly adequate for the month spent.

Room Tip: The taxi trip took about 10 minutes from downtown Raleigh's "The Big Easy".

Thank you for the review and we must find out what cab company took you 10 minutes to get to the Big Easy since it is a 5 minute drive! I am pleased to see that you had a pleasant stay and hope you will come stay with us again once we are through with our renovation so you can try out our new rooms. We appreciate your feedback and ahnk you for the review!

I have stayed here for 4 years straight, every Christmas season. The first year I was very hesitant as I generally avoid RR Inns, but we were on a tight budget and the reviews were good. The minute I saw it, I had a feeling it was in a class above the rest, and I was right. Very clean spacious rooms, Clean bathrooms, everything working perfectly. And probably the best shower I have ever seen in a hotel - water pressure is fantastic and a nice wide shower head...really really nice. The pillows could be better - they were fairly small, but my request for extras was met with no problems. Nicely decorated lobby for the season. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: I was told by the guy at the desk that the 4th floor was for smokers, but I never smelled any cigare...

Stayed 5 nights while attending a conference. (Originally planned on 4 but extended because of my room and Raleigh attractions.).

Brought my dog with me and staff was wonderful about making up my room when I had a few minutes to take her for a walk. Because of the conference, times varried, but staff was always there within a few minutes of my request.

An added bonus: There is a huge (several acre) field out back which was great for running my dog.

Room was comfortable with fridge, a nice table, a desk and wi-fi. Only issue: no Public Television station on the cable. Other than that, this far exceeded exceeded expectations!

I use this property two or three times a year. The only problem I have had in the past three or four years was actually my own fault. The folks at the front desk have let me, and the others in my ministry group, know that the second floor is pet free. I asked for a room on the first floor. Bad Idea. I should have known better. The rooms are always clean and since I spend several days I often hang the Do Not Disturb sign out and skip housekeeping for a day or two. If I need a clean towel there is always a helpful person to get me one. This property is less than 10 minutes from where I need to go each morning and having coffee in the room gets me there quickly and refreshed.

Room Tip: Make reservations early when the State Fair is going on!!!!
