I've stayed twice within the past month at this Holiday Inn Express and both times have been nothing short of amazing! Nathan is such an asset to the hotel with his professionalism and great personality. We ended up staying a second night and booked a separate reservation for the second night and he called just to double check that it wasn't a duplicate reservation, which I thought was very nice of him to do that. Our room was very clean and had plenty of space for my mom, daughter, and I. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious. It was very obvious that the hotel is taking Covid precautions seriously which I definitely appreciate. We felt very safe staying at this hotel as well and the parking lot is very well lit and offers plenty of parking spaces. Thanks again for another great stay and we'll be back in August!

We recently stayed at the hotel while visiting our daughter at NC State and had a very good experience. The location was very convenient to campus. The hotel staff is doing a very good job providing a safe environment through signage and hand sanitizer stations on every floor. Our room was immaculately clean which was very reassuring. Finally, the hotel staff exemplified true hospitality and were very gracious during both check in and check out.

I have stayed here before and great to see that they are handling the pandemic in stride taking appropriate measures to keep their guest safe and still provide a breakfast. You pick your breakfast the night before and pick it up at the front desk in the morning. You will need to take it to your room to heat up appropriate items in the microwave, but that isn't an issue to stay safe. There is also outdoor seating if you prefer (which looks like a pretty area).

This property is next to NC State University and Centennial Campus. It is right off the interstate so easy access to airport and shopping. The management team is what I would call the Dream Team, they know what it takes to make people happy and I wouldn't stay any other place while in Raleigh, NC
