“Great hotel that is clean and convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel when visiting the Raleigh - Cary North Carolina area. It is right on the Highway 40 / Highway 42 exit so it is very easy to access off of Highway I-40 via Exit 312. Since it is only 8 minutes from nearby shoppes in Garner, NC White Oak Shopping Center and 10 minutes to either Cary or Raleigh, NC you are close to everything, but at less expense. Beds are great, bathrooms are great, and breakfast bar is good, but there is a Cracker Barrel 20 yards away, so just walk across the parking lot. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Even though you seem close to the interstate, there is no road noise at all, so no worries on the ro...

Very clean, modern hotel. Great breakfast and room. Comfortable bed, nice TV, great furnishings and bath. Manager was awesome! Let us see and inspect our room prior to booking. Very helpful and accommodating. Could not have ask for more. Great service! Great value, will stay again. Highly recommend! Ranks right up there with more expensive hotels.

Room Tip: Great stay!

Stayed here Nov 10. Rooms were clean. Heater did not work properly, very loud noise. No wash cloths. Alarm clock did not work. Wake up call button on phone did not work. Finally, no ability to print boarding passes. Not terrible, location has many restaurants, some within walking distance.

We've stayed in one-star hotels and five-star hotels and the Holiday Inn Express is squarely in the middle. Check-in was not as smooth as it might have been. We visited Raleigh for a college graduation and several major universities in the Research Triangle scheduled their graduations for the same weekend. We arrived a little after 11:00 pm and had to wait about five minutes for someone to show up at the reception desk. Since the hotel was fully booked, it was not enough to show the reservation confirmation, I was asked to show the credit card I used to make the reservation.

On the plus side: the room was large, with the amenities you would expect from a national chain. The hotel was quite, despite the fact that there was at least one high-school basketball team staying there. they served a complementary breakfast from 5:30 to 9:30 am.

Not so great: the breakfast was buffet-style and the choices were fairly limited. The flavor and texture of the scrambled eggs were sub-par. At a restaurant, I would have sent them back.

I found the bed comfortable, but my wife did not.

Room Tip: I made the reservation only two days in advance, through Hotels.com, starting from the Find a Hotel...

I have never written a review and rarely find anything to complain about in a Hotel stay. I feel I pain @ least twice the value of the room, as the bed was very uncomfortable, televion is older model, hall on 3rd floor and room around 90* upon checkin. Hall still hot upon checkout. I have stayed in mycg nicer hotels for much less money. I shared this with management and he didn't seem too concerned. Not his money. No more of mine : )

The first comment is regarding the reception staff who was excellent, thanks to being a priority club member my check in was very quick and easy. I asked about local restaurants and was given a couple recommendation along with menu's which was really useful.
Room was clean although the general decor is a little tired.
The main road did generate a bit of traffic noise although it did not bother me.
In summary a good quality H I with reasonable rates.
