We really appreciated this hotel when we stayed here in June for two nights in the middle of a very long road trip.
The front desk staff was warm and friendly. They put thought into our room assignment and ensured we were in a low traffic area so as to not be disrupted. (I was suffering from terrible headaches at the time.)
The location is a bit removed, unless you're visiting nearby NC State University. Aside from the gas station across the street, there didn't seem to be much within walking distance. But there is a grocery store just a short drive away, and the lush, treed setting was very peaceful.
We are staying in Raleigh again at the end of the summer, this time for a week, and we didn't hesitate to re-book this property. We even requested the same room and were graciously accommodated.
Bonus: IT'S FULLY SMOKE-FREE AND DOGS ARE PERMITTED FOR A SMALL DAILY FEE.
