“Good value, a bit dated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Stayed here two nights. Room was clean, comfortable, but a bit dated. Shower water pressure was not up to par. Wifi was good, free breakfast was decent, and the lunch buffet at the Bayberry Bistro really wasn't bad for a hotel restaurant. Also, the location is very good (basically right on the 421 so easy access to anything in Winston-Salem). No problems with noise as we were on the 6th floor.

All in all, a great value as we paid $69 a night with the discounted rate.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I was there for 2 days for business. Older property, but they have remodeled, and it is very clean. There is a bar and restaurant and the food was quite good. Room service was good and relatively fast. Staff very friendly. Room equipped with desk, easy chair, flat screen tv, refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave. Convenient to downtown. Comfy pillow-top mattress and good pillows. Uses old-style bedspreads instead of duvet covers -- that was unappealing.

Stayed here to attend a 2-day conference. Room was pretty much standard-motel but pleasant and completely clean. Staff was very attentive to guests' needs and efficient in both check-in and check-out procedures. Fitness room was disappointing as they only had treadmill or cycle-type cardio machines and nothing for resistance exercise. Breakfast buffet on the other hand was very very good as was the lunch buffet provided for our conference. Inn is within easy, pleasant and safe walking distance of downtown and trendy evening attractions.

Room Tip: Ask for an exterior-facing room which would face the city or the surrounding hills. Those facing the...

All the staff is very friendly and helpful and it is located only blocks from downtown. There are several restaurants within walking distance.
Shuttle bus service to Wake Forest Medical available every 30 minutes until mid morning and after that all service until 11:30 pm with phone call.

Comfortable accommodations in a convenient location to downtown area and I-40 (Business). Extremely pleasant and helpful staff. Restaurant had a full menu. Spacious room equipped with a large desk and an easy chair. Bathroom a little on the small side but adequate. Excellent value for money.

I stayed here for work and I felt right at home. The staff was friendly, the restaurant located inside the hotel served delicious food, and it had all the necessities for me while I was there. The rooms were big, beds were comfy and I had a refrigerator for some of my food and leftovers. Most of the building is covered with marble flooring, and I really didn't expect this hotel to be this fancy for the price. I felt this was a great value and would definitely stay here again the next time I come back. Go give the Bayberry Bistro a try. They serve delicious food and their buffet isn't bad at all. The price is cheap, their food quality is top notch. Best of all, the servers there will treat you right. If you don't stay here, at least try the restaurant.

Room Tip: You will get a big desk if you choose a King. Two doubles will still give you a large room but you w...
