This seemed to be a very new hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had an adjoining room with another family member and it was great! When I called to set up the adjoining room - the staff was very helpful and made sure that we got what we wanted. I was impressed because I've had other situations at other hotels where they were not so accommodating! YAY for the Holiday Inn Express!! The room was very clean. The free breakfast was surprisingly good. The pool area was also really nice. In Raleigh, NC in August, you certainly need a pool.
The downsides were that there was A LOT of noise from the room above us all day and all night long - sounded like they were jumping around all the time. I didn't call the front desk (I didn't want to be that person, so it's NOT the hotels fault). One of our non-smoking rooms definitely smelled like smoke, so that was a bit of a disappointment, but since we needed connecting rooms, we just put up with it. The elevator was REALLY slow, so we just took the steps. All in all, I would definitely stay here again.
