Reviewed January 5, 2009

This was our second stay at the SpringHill Suites, and we have no complaints about the staff/property. Yes, the rooms are showing some signs of age, but I understand that a projected renovation of the property has been put on hold. Our room was more than adequate for two people, and our requests at the front desk were handled promptly and courteously. I definitely would stay here again.

Great hotel on a budget price. Rooms are clean and comfortable. We've stayed at this hotel several times throughout the past year and have always found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. There were a lot of kids during one of our stay. Two kids pulled the fire alarm which created an inconvenience since we had to leave the hotel. Luckily it happened in the afternoon and not at night. Staff always tried their best to make our stay enjoyable. Nice breakfast, though breakfast area is not very big and can get crowded fast.

Our family was very disappointed with this hotel. The rooms were very small, not exactly a suite but one large room. Once the (very small) pullout couch was opened there was barely enough room to walk passed it.
I would not reccomend this hotel for a family travelling with children. This room may be appropriate for no more than 2 people.

The SpringHill suites is located near RDU airport, in between Durham and Raleigh. It is a stock-standard mid-priced offering in the Marriott chain. The rooms were surprisingly large with high ceilings. The front desk staff was nice and efficient upon check-in. The hotel staff also quickly rectified situation with a faulty remote control. The hotel is located back within a business park and you need to drive to next freeway exit (west from hotel) to restaurants and other amenities. The hotel is quite convenient to RDU airport for early morning flights.

So we went to make our second trip to North Carolina for NCAA basketball fever for March Madness 2008. My wife and I shared a king suite with a friend and we had an adjoining room with a friend and her son. Our room cost only $75 per night! This was an excellent bargain considering its location and the overall experience we had.

Our initial check-in was not as great but the service from that point on was terrific. At this value we were only expecting a comfortable place to rest our head for 4 nights. What we received was much more. Our room was comfortable and had 1 TV. Note that our friend and her son had 2 double beds and had 2 TVs. That suite cost a little more ($80 I think).

The parking lot was in terrific shape and everything in the hotel was clean. The breakfast area was small considering the number of people staying there. Many guests just sat at a table all by themselves and read a newspaper while people were struggling to stand and eat. The food was okay, but given the value of the room it was fine.

This hotel is very close to the airport if flying in. We liked the location to RBC Center and when I-40 was jammed we had easy access to alternate routes. We also easily found grocery stores and many places to eat. We enjoyed going twice to Duke including Duke Chapel for Easter worship. For shopping this hotel was very close to the Streets at Southpoint which was a newer upscale shopping mall. Lots of pkaces to eat. We ate at Champps and enjoyed watching basketball live on their big screen tvs. There was also a Starbucks nearby.

This hotel does not have many reviews, but I will definately stay here again when I return to the area. Oh, the pool was crowded with children much of the time we were there and the exercise room only had a couple treadmills.

We stopped at this hotel while checking out the Durham/Raleigh area. We were thrilled to get a room here for only $69 on a Friday night. When we entered the hotel, we were greeted by smiling faces and pleasant smelling candles, with the fireplace going in the lobby. We went to our room, and realized we had mistakenly been given a room that hadn't been cleaned yet (there was a towel on the bed and an empty water bottle) so we went to the desk to get another room. They were extremely apologetic about the mix up, and were in our new room within minutes apologizing again and they offered us 2 small gifts bags with goodies in them. I felt they went above and beyond for such a small mistake. Our room was clean, as was the whole hotel, and the beds were very comfortable. The linens were updated and very clean- and this is coming from someone who is picky about this. We got a suite for the price of a regular hotel room elsewhere, and it was nice to have a fridge in the room and extra space to spread out. We didn't see anything that really needed updating. The bathroom was also nice. The breakfast in the morning was the best one Id ever had at a hotel- and the lobby was packed- everyone else seemed to be enjoying it as well. I would stay at this hotel again in a heartbeat. Great value and a great night's sleep!

On appearance everything looked fine. The hotel is in a nice area, its fairly new, the room was laid out well, and the front desk was very friendly upon check in. Unfortunately, looks were deceiving. My biggest complaint was the noise. All night long we heard the sounds of other guests closing their doors. I attempted to use the heat/fan to drown out the noise, but instead it blew directly on me and after a few minutes started making strange noises, so I turned it off. There should be a cover on the vents to direct the air away from the bed. In the morning after a bad night's sleep I realized that the way the doors work, you can't help but close them loudly. Our tub also had a stain that I am not used to seeing when staying at Marriott hotels. I won't stay here again. I chose this hotel to save a little money, but next time I will splurge to get a better night's sleep.
