WOW! The Peak City Pig Fest, our first BBQ competition sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society held in Historic Downtown Apex, NC. I can hardly wait until next year when we do it all over again! Thank you for choosing the host hotel for your stay, I look forward to seeing you in 2013 for more BBQ, fun and festivities.

Staff is outstanding, especially Cherie, and the room was excellent. Only faults are the small size of the exercise room, no weights, and the lack of laundry facilities. I will note that this trip was an extended stay for eight days. I rank as very good as I normally stay at Hilton's or Embassy Suites and the level of support is much better than the Holiday Inn Express.

Thank you for your comments. I am glad you found your room at the Holiday Inn Express in Apex, NC excellent. And you will be glad to know we are reworking our fitness facility with new equipment and will also try to add in some free weights. Eight days is truly an extended stay, I want to make sure you are aware we offer same day wash and fold laundry services for our guest at really resonable rates. I hope you will try our hotel again when you are in the area, so many of our extended stay guest soon become part of our family. Thank you again for the nice compliments about the outstanding staff!

Warmest Regards,
Cherry Champion

This is a good hotel if you need to stay overnight near the airport. It's a quick, easy drive to RDU. The hotel itself is a typical Holiday Inn Express. It was nice, clean and I had no complaints.

I was allowed to check in early and had my room upgraded. The rooms were clean and the hotel was very close to many stores and restaurants. This hotel is close to Cary and Holly Springs - which is where I needed to be.

I was in Apex, NC for a YouTube gathering with some people that I met and I happened to choose this hotel because of the reviews. I can tell you that this place is great. The staff was very friendly and, what I liked about it was they give you a breakfast buffet, which consists of hot items and pastries.

I also liked the fact that they give you FREE Internet access. The next time I'm in the area, I will definitely stay here again.
