This is our "go to" home away from home when we go to NC State football games...Dane and Mike have been very good to work with and have always treated us well, very professional...very friendly. The rooms are always immaculate and the beds are comfortable. The Breakfast is your typical fare but always clean and well stocked

Stayed one night on 8/12/16, and while our stay was OK for one night, it could have been better. The exterior and grounds were fine, and in pretty good shape, as was the lobby. Upon our arrival around 2:45PM, no one was at the front desk. We waited about five minutes before someone came out of the back office to... More

This is a very nice, decently priced hotel. The rooms are all updated. The hotel is very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a nice pool, and the hotel is in a quiet location. The complimentary breakfast was very good and had a large selection of food.

Came to Apex for the Annual Pig Fest and just needed a room for the night. Got more than we expected here. We arrived a couple of minutes before check in time, but they got us right in. People at the desk were very friendly and helpful. A very nice place in a nice town. A nicer price.

The hotel was very quiet, despite being full. Breakfast area was clean. Food was hot and fresh. The only problem we had was, upon arrival, the room had an odd smell. Housekeeping took care of it right away. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful.
