“Fantastic Location/Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Booked this hotel for the location to the Arena for Bob Seger Concert. Was thrilled to see how close we were to the Arena (15 min walk, max!), so were ahead from the start. There is a nice sports bar/restaurant within a 5 min. walk, and they had excellent food, and great service. Knew 100% non-smoking, so had requested ground floor, which were already booked up, so front desk gave us an end room on 3rd floor - which was perfect. The room was not a room, but a small efficiency apt., which is their regular room. Very clean, with all amenities!! Breakfast in the a.m. was very good. Many choices, and enough to fill up anyone. Even had the Sunday paper - nice plus!

Check-in was easy, nice sized rooms, and comfortable beds and the room temperature was just right. The most impressive thing was the breakfast. A nice sized area for enjoying breakfast so you didn't feel cramped or rushed when others arrived to eat. They kept the breakfast area very clean and supplied with a variety of offerings from cold cereal to yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausage and the make-your-own Belgian waffle maker and a variety of juices and hot drinks. All the food items were also just the right temperature. We stayed here in order to attend an event at the NC State Fairgrounds. I felt secure and would stay here again.

This is a great location to the PNC Center Arena. It's the only hotel in the area that you can walk to the games, concerts, etc. Save yourself some $$$ on parking! It is also very close to the NC State Fairgrounds. Not close enough to walk, but they do offer a shuttle. The hotel is also a good place to stay near the airport and they offer a shuttle for that also.
The rooms are very large! I could easily stay there for a few days or even a week. Each room has a mini living room with a couch (which folds out to a bed) and a big flat screen tv. Rooms and the hotel are very clean. I stayed here about 3 years ago, and it looks just as clean and new now as it did then.
Breakfast is normal for this type of hotel. Waffles, eggs, biscuits & gravy, plus fruits, cereals, and donuts. Enough to fill you up.

This is an excellent location for Hockey games (PNC center)and NC State football games - right across the street and can walk to both stadiums! Rooms are amazing and roomy, clean and has everything you need (blowdryer, microwave, mini fridge, sitting area). Not a far drive from downtown either. Will not hesitate to stay there again.

I have stayed at this property several times over the last few years and have always been pleased, however this trip was not at all what I expected. The hotel is in the process of remodeling and were using some strong cleaners. They were good about getting a window open and helping to air out our room. The room looked as if it had been stripped. The website shows TV's in each bedroom, but there was only one in the sitting area of our suite. The room says it will sleep 5-6 but there are only 2 beds and no pull-out sofa (that sleeps 4 in my calculations). The suite contained only 2 chairs for sitting in the living area and a table with 2 chairs. Not very comfortable for 3 people to sit and watch TV. The kitchen has no upper cabinets and there are no plates, pots, pans or glasses in the unit. The breakfast the next morning had dried out bagels and rock hard biscuits. The front desk staff was very nice and said they had had other complaints and had mentioned it to the manager but were not sure what he planned to do about the problem. Yes, the location is great and you can walk to the RBC center for games, but should that mean you sould become complacent in your guest service?

Attended a meeting at NC State McKimmon Center and stayed at the Comfort Sutes Arena. Great location for the conference center and across the street from parking at the C. Richard Vaughn Towers at the arena. Nice breakfast selection provided as part of the hotel package; nice size, comfortable room. Desk clerk very helpful on suggesting places to eat.

We spent a night at the hotel after the Hurricanes game at PNC Arena. The check in process was quick & easy with reservations. We could check in before the game, walk to the arena & skip the $10 parking fee next door. The room (227) was clean & comfortable. We had 2 queen beds, a seating area with a couch & chair, a nicely sized flat screen tv, a kitchenette & a roomy bathroom. Breakfast in the morning was adequate & they had something for everyone. Check out wasn't until noon which gave us plenty of time to get going. I rely on reviews before making a choice on hotels. I agree with the other reviewers. This is a great place to stay. We will be back soon. Let's Go Canes!
