“Worst Pillows Ever”
Reviewed June 4, 2006

The interior of the hotel is beginning to look tired. Signs of frayed carpet and the smell of stale cigarette smoke permeated the corridor of the halls and Several non-smoking rooms reaked of smoke, but the most troubling aspect of our stay (and all 3 couples agreed) was the poor quality of hotel's pillows and beds. They were hard and very uncomfortable. The following morning all complained of having a poor nights sleep.

The upshot was that the continental breakfast was as expected and our room’s bathroom was clean.

If you decide to stay here, bring a pillow with you....you'll be gald you did.

My wife and I travel a lot! Never have we come across as friendlier front desk personnel staff or guest services. We will certainly stay again when we are in this town or in the area!

Recently stayed here for two nights and we were pleased. For what is available in Wilson this is the pick of the area!

Pros: Easy reservation process through the Priority Club website. Upon check-in the front desk attendant was nice and gave us a goodie bag for having our first stay with them. It had popcorn, candy, bottled water and other odds and ends. The room was just what we expected: plain but clean. Complimentary breakfast both mornings with fresh pastries and cereal. Parking lot was well lit and close to many food options, some within walking distance. Movie theater just right outside of the parking lot.

Cons: They subcontracted out a technician to change out the bathroom fixtures while we were there, which included having the water cut off for sevral hours one day. One trip down to the front desk and we were passed by for the work during our stay, unfortunately we still had to deal with the cut off water. Didn't swim, but the pool is tiny and not very private. Check-out took longer than we had hoped, but overall this is the place we will stay when visiting this part of North Carolina.
