Probably won't go back.

I've been on many road trips so I've seen the good, thr bad and the "whatever" type of places. Unfortunately, this place falls under the bad category. For example, when I went down the stairs the night I checked in, I saw a hole on the wall, obviously punched in by someone. The next morning someone kicked the walls in addition to what was already a mess. On top of the dirty stained furniture, carpet and run down room with cracks everywhere, the fact that people who would damage property like that stay there is the most significant down factor. However, the good thing is that it has a kitchen with a stove for those seeking to cook their own meal.

Stay at Crestwood Suites

The experience I had at Crest Wood was alright.. The staff were pleasant.. The room was very clean.. The only down fall that I would say about the hotel would be there were no remotes in the room and had lot of trouble with the room key other than that I would stay there again.

Grocery Store in the area. Nail shop. Golden Coral, Subway, and Taco Bell are all within walking distance. There is a mall about 10 minutes from the hotel which is a plus.

Great location and great price

I've stayed at this hotel dozens of times over the past 3 years. I would not stay anyplace else. The rooms are comfortable, although a bit worn, the beds are clean, and the staff is friendly. The mall is very close with many upscale dining options.

Not an acceptable experience!

This hotel was really bad, [...] Very uncooperative and nasty. The hotel was not clean, and [*]. Also, another guest reported they had bug bites from this place. [...]

Great Value For The Price

I booked a 2BR Suite for four of us during a UNC-Miami Football Game weekend. There is a living area with a TV and a small kitchen which separates the two bedrooms. Each bedroom has it's own full bath. Two couples can share and still have their privacy. It's just a short drive from Kenan Stadium and the rate was a great deal!

OK for the money

Large rooms and kitchenette were nice. Relatively quiet even though we noticed a lot of college age kids entering hotel with cases of beer. Hotel needs upgrade on furniture. Don't expect super clean rooms. OK for 1 night in $50/ night class.
