“Excellent Value and Exceptional Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

I have stayed for three short visits at this location. Each time, I found the front desk personnel to be extremely efficient, welcoming, and courteous - especially nice when I arrive around midnight! Any small issues with the room (i.e. extra pillows, glasses, running toilet) were dealt with promptly and with pleasant demeanor.

As a retired business professional, I know what a difference the right location, price and features can make.
I will come back again and again to this location (until I close on my new house), and will recommend it to everyone who wants a convenient, budget-minded location. (It's just off I-40, which gets you to all other major routes in the Raleigh-Durham area within 10 minutes).

Room Tip: If you drive in, stay on the first floor where you can park outside your room (or within a couple sp...

I have stay at this hotel before and enjoyed my stay. What I like about the hotel is that it is located close to a Walgreens pharmacy, Food Lion Supermarket, Golden Corrals, many gas stations and so many other places to eat and shop. Upon check in the front office agent had my reservation but at a higher rate. Luckily, I printed out my reservation and he had to honor my lower rate. When I made my reservation on the Homestead Studio Suites websites it did not include taxes. This is very deceptive, because you think this is what you are going to pay. So upon check in you get hit with about $9.00 more in charges. Next time, I will stay with another hotel in the area. I don’t like surprise when it comes to spending my cash.

We came in visiting family and friends and decided to stay at the Homestead Studios. They have great customer service and a wonderful atmosphere, so friendly we decided to stay a second night! The rooms were in great condition very clean and smelled good. I would recomend this hotel any time. Their convienant to restaurants close by if you dont want to drive you can safely walk to where ever you like, theres a wide cultural variety of restaurants near by that we didnt know which place to chose.

Room Tip: If your traveling down Hwy 40 their located right off the highway, and if your on Hwy 147 just right...

If all you need is a place to sleep before getting back on the highway, Homestead Durham Research Triangle Park serves its purpose. If you are planning to arrive after 9 PM, make sure you call the customer service about this. I guess, they don't have 24 hours check in facility. It is like any other Homestead with kitchen, fridge and microwave. Rooms were pretty clean. Good value for money

Needed a place to crash for two nights with little time planned in the room other than sleeping and showering. The $44.99 rate sucked me in, although that was somewhat misleading as there was an additional $5 per night for a second person. I don't think my expectations were unrealistic. The term "suite" really misleads--it really is an efficiency with a bathroom and a room with two beds and kitchen. The bathroom came complete with two bars of soap, a moldy shower curtain, and a bare countertop. No shampoo or bath fan either. Television was smaller than average and remote barely functioned. Needed an extra blanket (but of course, there was none) as the bed consisted of a single sheet and spread. The staff were friendly, but had to wait about ten minutes for one of them to come to the desk. Certainly no frills here as this was obviously a better property under another franchise in the past. There's a great need for a good many cosmetic touch ups at the minimum. Definitely missed the daily maid service found elsewhere . So I'll certainly bypass Homestead my next trip and splurge for the Red Roof!
