My best friend and I quarantined at this hotel before our best friend's wedding. We booked here when we found out she was exposed, with the intent of staying until her quarantine period was up. Unfortunately, my best friend did end up testing positive and we had to leave. The people in this hotel were amazing through the whole process. We spoke to multiple people at the front desk and every experience was positive. The beds were comfortable, the room was comfortable and the breakfast was amazing, especially during covid. When we had to leave before our stay was over, every person we spoke to was amazing. They even comped us the one night we were not able to stay since my friend tested positive. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. They were professional through and through, and just oozed kindness. Thank you for an amazing stay and I'd gladly stay here again.

The room was spacious with mini-fridge and microwave and nice bathroom. The bed and bedding was wonderfully comfortable. There were enough outlets and USB ports handy. The shower was good. Parking was easy. The people at the desk were efficient and friendly. There was a wardrobe instead of a closet. Heat worked well. We stayed one night but I would have been comfortable here for a longer stay. Disliked · I'm not a fan of "tall" beds because I

I titled this the way I did because this was the first hotel on our trip that had a pretty normal hotel breakfast. No grab and go here. Our room was clean with a good bed and nice bathroom. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. It is in a great location just off I-85. Would definitely stay here again.

Traveling post-COVID (or almost) can be challenging and it’s just refreshing to find a hotel that simplifies the process. We arrived late, check-in was easy, and the room met all expectations. Breakfast was as good as any you will find in hotel self-serves these days, and the facilities were always clean. What sets this hotel apart from many others is the caring attitude shown by all staff members. It’s as if they have been reminded often that the customer is a guest and the guest’s comfort is the most important aspect of their job. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel, and will return, when next I travel to the Raleigh/Durham area.
