“Meh breakfast but otherwise totally good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

This was a nice small hotel that is a great option for a break from interstate driving. The room was clean and comfortable. The free breakfast was standard HI- not great (crispy biscuits, weird sausage, frozen cinnamon rolls and ultra cheap awful pastries) but I ate it anyway!

I stayed at this hotel during all the snow delays in Mid-February. The hotel staff went out of their way to get extra food and amenities while everybody was snowed in. The Management Staff is extremely friendly and will go above and beyond to ensure each guest feels welcome and that they are truly at a home away from home.

This is an excellent facility, and I highly recommend it to anybody in the Durham, NC area.

I had to get off the road (due to inclement weather) and stay at this hotel unexpectedly. I only chose the hotel because of the hotel sign I saw off the Interstate. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and appealing. As a courtesy, pizza was ordered in the evening for those who could not make it out into the elements to get food. It's always good to have great amenities with great customer service. I would strategic choose this hotel again because of my great experience.

The staff was great and so helpful. Our family felt comfortable sitting in the lounge area all throughout the day and night. Some of the rooms need some updating but very clean. We would stay here again!

We were recently in Hillsborough for a swim meet and my entire family stayed at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful day and night. The hotel is tuck up off the main road but is close to adorable historic Hillsborough. The price was also better than many similar hotels in the area.

This is a good clean hotel at reasonable pricing for the area. Restaurants close by for a quick meal and a grocery store right down the street makes for easy shopping. The staff is very friendly and willing to help with any request. The breakfast was not great the day I was there but maybe just a bad day for them, there were only 3 way over ripe bananas that I would have thrown out, 6 mini muffins, and 5 pastries and this was at 7am so they were not just about to close for the morning. I would stay here again, just would go to McDonald's for fresh hot breakfast.

I had a team of people staying at this location in middle of january. We had took up 20 rooms. We were working in the area and had to leave out by 5 am every morning. the night shift guy, Derreck, made sure we had hot breakfast each morning and made sure we had any other ammenities we may have needed (within reason). The Owner also was very nice and accomodating as well. Definitely will stay again when in area aslong as derreck is working
