OK for a one-nite stay. Check-in very pleasant. Parking spaces very limited in the back near entrance to our room. Did not like forced-choice served breakfast instead of buffet style. Quality of served egg-dish was sub-par.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to let us know about your recent stay. We are sorry to hear that there was not enough parking near your entrance. We have some parking on the sides of our hotel and then a bigger lot in the back of the hotel.
We are sorry that our choices for breakfast were not appealing to you, we are looking into various choices and items to offer to our guests.

Nice family friendly hotel. Positive - Service and front desk gpersonnel extremely pleasant. Negative - bed too hard and ac blew cool, damp air. Overall, not too shabby and would probably stay here again due to the location.

We went to Raleigh to visit our son who had just started his first semester at NC State, so picked a hotel based on location to campus and price. Got a good price and just minutes away from the center of campus so very pleased. Would also be a good location if you were attending a sporting event as it is on Blue Ridge Rd, just around the corner from football stadium and PNC Arena.

The staff at the desk and restaurant could not have been nicer. I honestly did not realize that breakfast was included until I checked in and was given voucher, and it was a very nice eggs, bacon, hash brown, biscuit breakfast or lighter choices if you wish.

The room was fairly typical but did have a nice desk for me to get some work done while there. TV is outdated, but not a big deal since we weren't in the room much.

I have stayed at this hotel at least 10 times and always been pleased. It is within walking distance to the flea market at the Fairgrounds (rated by County Living Magazine as one of the top 25 flea markets in the country) and also to the Dorton Arena and the rest of the fairgrounds, as well as being right next door to the NC State Veterinary School. There is easy access to other areas of the Raleigh/Durham area.. The rooms are comfortable, the pool is clean, the employees are pleasant and there is a free sitdown breakfast in the morning! I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: we have always requested smoke free rooms and been satisfied. There is a nice gazebo in the pool cou...
