Stayed one night before running the Mountains to Sea 50K. Convenient to the start/finish and convenient to a great Italian restaurant in Wake Forest. It was clean and quiet. They were also very accommodating with late checkout.

I believe this is my 7th business trip to the area and this hotel. Can't say enough about the staff and accommodating requests. The great space for the business traveler. Large rooms, separate work area, full size refrigerator and the electric stove top. Easy walk to Target or drugstore. It's like home away from home.
