“Great for travel with our kids - excellent amenities, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We had never heard about this chain but saw some good reviews and booked it for part of our our vacation in North Carolina. Our room was excellent, clean and very spacious with plenty of room for our teenagers to spread out and relax. The best part for our family was the food - teenagers are always hungry. My son had "first" dinner at the hotel and then we would go out later enjoy one of the many choices in the surrounding area. One night we were all exhausted after a day at the National Whitewater Rafting Center and had enough food at the happy hour to call it dinner. We don't drink alcohol but is you do - two free drinks per person (and plenty of non-drinkers with tickets). Staff was great and honored any requests (extra towels in our case). Can't go wrong and now we specifically look for the Drury brand when traveling...just wish there were more!

Room Tip: We paid a little more for a two room suite - worth the cost!

The Drury inn where we stayed last Friday night, was clean and comfortable. They provided three free drinks per person and a variety of cold and hot foods, also free. A person could easily make a supper on these offerings. The free breakfast was also delicious. I feel that we really got our money's worth and I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed one night at Drury Inn and was very impressed. Frequently stay at Holiday Inns and this place was similar in comfort with a step up in style. Room very clean, big bathroom and comfortable beds. Pool and gaming area was great for the kids. Offers popcorn/soda bar for no extra cost. Large flat screen TVs. Delicious, free breakfast bar with lots of choices. Just wish there were more of these around.

Stayed here on way back home to Canada .
Nicely appointed rooms, clean and good price. Included in price are 3 drinks and enough food for supper at night.
This is a great place for families .
Also near this hotel within walking distance are several good restaurants and a good mall.
Good choice for hotel.

Spent one short night at this motel recently. I was attending a function in uptown Charlotte that started very early so needed a relaxing place for a short sleep and shower. As usual everything was clean and comfy making getting to sleep easy. This motel could update a few things in the rooms though, such as floor lamps that wobble and phones that sometimes don't work. But the beds and pillows are great. I never seem to catch the evening snack/meal time and this time due to my early departure I missed breakfast. I was fortunate to grap some juice on my way out which was a great help in getting the day started. Check-in and check-out was a breeze and the staff was friendly. I did have a coupon which got me a much better rate than usual for this 1 night.

and this hotel was no exception. We find them comfortable and economical without exception. We checked in with a coupon for a rate of $61.00 plus tax. The room was comfortable and clean with all the amenities. Lots of electrical outlets to meet all our needs. We really like the dispensers in the bathroom for shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The indoor-outdoor pool was very favorable and I was able to do my one hour swim. Probably what we like best about Drury Inns is their 5:30 pm happy hour. Each person has a coupon for 3 drinks and we didn't need dinner after eating the food that was offered. hotdogs, chicken tenders, baked potatoes, mac and cheese, a salad bar and nacho bar and more. Breakfast was delicious. There was a big pot of cooked oatmeal like I haven't had since childhood along with eggs, sausages and numerous other items. Lastly, I would like to comment on the friendliness of the staff, especially Doug the manager who helped us with travel plans. Please open more Drury Inns.

First time I ever heard of Drury was in a recent Consumer Report article. The Drury hotel chain came as "recommended" among most of the majors. Then I find myself staying at this Drury for a week on business.

Considering the price its pretty darn good.

Where else can you get a nice looking room, a free full breakfast in the morning and a Happy Hour with free drinks and hot food for a very inexpensive price? The front desk staff was very knowledgable. One morning we had the chance to talk with Ted one of the managers as he awaited the arrival of the corporate executives. The rooms are good quality and include very comfortable beds and chairs.
