My family and I were in town for the CASL tourney. Other teams members stayed elsewhere and I heard nothing but complaints about their hotels. Kristina couldn't have been any more helpful during our check in concerning room arrangements, locals restaurants, etc. the breakfast hostess was helpful and pleasant. Another front desk person Crystal helped with a billing error that... More

Just far enough north of Raleigh, in Wake Forest, to get away from the hustle-bussle but close enough to be convenient. A few miles down Capital Blvd you're at the Beltline. Nice friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms, at a great price. The breakfast is really good. They have hot food and continental style selections. Ample selections for any appetite... More

Love this place. They got HBO and on demand tv in the room. Love the snoozapalooza on the weekends with late check out and late hot, fresh breakfast buffet from 7 am to noon with pancakes, biscuits, gravy, turkey and pork sausages, scrambled and hard boiled eggs, regular and chocolate milk, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, juices, fresh fruit, hot cinnamon rolls,...

This is a nice hotel and a great experience. There was a potential snafu checking in but the attendant (sorry I didn't get your name!) was extremely professional and handled it with ease for both of us. The rooms were surprisingly big. Most importantly, I was able to get the room to my specific preferred temperature and keep it there,... More

I'm a traveling comedian, and I've gotten used to staying at all levels of establishments, and I have to say that The Holiday in on Common Oaks dr. Was by far the most pleasant. I typically check in late, and they understood I was exhausted from a long drive and took care of me quickly. They made a note to... More

This hotel is beyond great. Not only was it comfortable, but it was also classy. The breakfast was great and I felt like I was eating at a restaurant as opposed to a hotel. I arrived late and was greeted warmly by the front desk clerk. I stayed here for two nights and was able to get sleep at night... More

We are traveling entertainers so we stay in a lot of hotels, often with a late check in and upon arrival the staff here were extremely helpful, courteous and professional. There was plenty of free parking and the property was right off the highway. The rooms were very clean and modern with super comfortable beds and fast wifi! I'd highly... More

Clean hotel. Nice enough staff. Typical breakfast for HI&S. Call before you book to make sure the elevator is working. As of this post (and much earlier posts), .Still an issue unless you don't mind trekking up a hot stairwell with luggage etc in tow.! I myself have an aversion to such things.
