“Bed Bugs”
Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

I have over 40 bed bug bites from this hotel. Stayed in room 212 and the hotel management is not taking any responsibility on this situation and is keeping my money

Thank you for your review of the Comfort Sutes Arena and we are very sorry that you experienced a condition which coincided with your trip to Raleigh. As a responsible business, we take complaints of this nature extremely seriously. Your complaint was thoroughly investigated by the Wake County Health Department as well as a professional exterminating company and found no evidence of bed bugs at our hotel.

Stayed for a night for the Bon Jovi concert. Excellent location right across the street from RBC Arena so walking there was easy. Avoided paying parking fees and traffice leaving. Highly recommend if atteding a concert, Hurricanes NHL hockey or NC State football/basketball. You will pay more on the night of these events but in my opinion well worth it.

My husband and I stayed here overnight. The room was spacious and clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The staff were very friendly and the free breakfast was delicious. Best of all - it was good value for money

This is a nice place to stay when you don't want to break the bank but want a clean place to stay. The rooms are nice sized and comfortable and they keep it very clean. The staff is very nice and accomidating. The lady working the breakfast bar was extremely sweet and helpful. We have used this place several times and have always been happy.

Room Tip: We stayed in an upgraded room with a small kitchen and bar area. Worked great for gathering friends...

We stayed at this hotel last weekend in a King room. The room was very nice with a small refrigerator and sink, and a sitting area with a huge tv. The bed was probably one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in at a hotel! Right behind the PNC arena, so it's very convenient.
