“Overlooked at first but glad I came back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2011

I was traveling though town looking for a place to stay. I went by the back of Hawthorne Inn, thinking it was the front and moved on. I tried staying at a place downtown but it was full. They recommended the Hawthorne and told me it was owned by Wake Forest University and I am glad they did.

I again went to the back to check-in and that is when I discovered it was the back of the building.

This place is reasonably priced with exceptionally clean rooms and friendly staff. The rooms are large and well lit with all extras you would expect at a much more expensive place.

I also like the location. It is within walking distance of downtown with a lot of places to choose to eat.

My husband and I along with our beloved Boxer, Lucky Boy just stayed at the Hawthorne Inn and visited local sites and Old Salem. We were amazed that we could take our dog for a reasonable cost and not have to worry about bording him.
Everyone was amazing. The check in/out desk personell were exceptional. Wayne helped us with information on places to see, eat and activities going on while we were in town.
Our room was very accomodating for our needs to take the dog in and out and everything was clean and exactly what we needed in our room.
The food was great and the complimentary breakfast was much more and better food than places we have stayed prior.
Great value for the money and we recommend it!

Room Tip: Just let them know exactly what your needs are and they will do their best to accomodate you.

Extremely clean hotel, people who truly care about others with warm, big hearts. We were visiting for medical reasons. It is apparent the staff is well aware many of us have doctors at wake baptist hospital. They go the extra mile in every area. The hotel food was exceptional in homeade dishes, great value for the money as well...they seem to know people need good nutritional food even more under the circumstances!

The food was excellent as was the service from all the staff. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all delicious. The front desk staff as well as the seminar staff from the Hawthorne gave excellent service. The only issue I had was when I turned back my bed covers, a spider crawled accross the bed. I killed it myself and did not contact the hospital staff for assistance. I have stayed there many times before and this is the first time I had such an experience. Thank you for all you do to make our stay at the Hawthrone Inn and excellent experience.

This used to be a Hyatt Hotel. It is now owned by the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. It provides great free shuttle service to the hospital and clinics including wheelchair accessible vans and assistance. The staff is WONDERFUL!!!. This place is immaculate! The continental breakfast is so much more than that with Belgian Waffles, eggs, fresh fruit, (bacon some days or gravy biscuits), bagels etc. The food room service was great! The restaurant has wonderful food especially the salmon and baked potatoes etc. It is a very fancy hotel that anyone can stay at and the prices are very reasonable (i.e. $79/night). http://www.wakehealth.edu/hawthorne-inn/

A large party was staying in the hotel and my room was in the middle of their rooms. They were up all night with no respect for the other guests. The slamming of doors, yelling and general rowdiness was horrible. Calls to the front desk yielded no impact. Did not get to sleep until after 3:30.
