Good location, being refurbed (07/2014)

Solid location just off Capital Boulevard, near Wake Forest and Heritage Wake Forest. Hotel is 12 years old and is being refurbished. We stayed on the 2nd floor, part of which is being redone. The work is restricted to working hours, so it really wasn't a nuisance. Our room was clean and comfortable, BUT running the bathroom fan for extended periods seemed to produce a funky odor. Not good. Adding to the issue was the fact that we couldn't turn on the bathroom lights without the fan running. Breakfast was fine. Staff was friendly. All in all, I'd stay there again, but would request a floor that isn't being worked on.

If you're staying in the hotel on a Friday or Saturday night, consider dining at the Heritage Golf Club - the chef is terrific!

Great Stay

I think this was one of the best hotels I have stayed at. The room was clean and big and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast and coffee were supurb. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The hotel is a bit off the main street and could use a sign to help guide your way especially at night. But our GPS led us right to it.

Hotel was okay...

The hotel was okay but there was nothing special. I found the mattress to be very hard and the sofa a little worn out, but everything was clean. The concierges were all nice and helpful. At check in they give you an unfriendly note that if you don't have your room available to clean at 8:30, you do not get your room cleaned. You need to call in advance if you do. Besides that, the breakfast was good and the friendly woman was nice enough not to take the food out of the dining area at the exact time, which is what they usually do. I didn't like the business center (they don't have one), since the computer is in the lobby, and people are waiting looking at what you are doing while waiting for the only computer available to guests. I don't want to give the wrong impression on the hotel; it was perfectlty fine, but I wasn't impressed with the value.

Great experience.

From the front desk staff to the people who prepared the breakfast, this was one of the smoothest hotel stays I've ever had. I think what I liked best was the breakfast. Great selection of food, and the coffee was superb (and I'm a coffee fanatic)! I look forward to returning soon.

Difficult to find even with our GPS

No road signs to help us locate the hotel until we were right upon it. Otherwise a quiet location near where we wanted to be and with a good breakfast.

Fairly nice stay

I arrived after midnight for my stay at the hotel. It was a very nice room, but we were very disappointed that the non smoking room smelled like smoke. The staff was understanding when I reported the inconvenience. The breakfast the next morning was very nice. Regardless of the smell in the room I would stay in the hotel again. It was clean, conveniently located, great value, and comfortable.
