We really enjoyed the hotel. It was a short drive from the PNC arena for a concert, and not too far from restaurants. It was a bit isolated though.

Family Vacation

We had two children with us and booked a suite. We had our own coffee pot, microwave, fridge and small living area that was very handy. This place was clean, the staff very friendly and the location was perfect. It was so easy to get to anywhere we wanted to go.

So Quiet

It was quite busy when we arrived, but once settled down in the room, it was quiet and comfortable. Good buffet in the morning, slightly crowded

Nice room, good location

The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast bar was well stocked with plenty of seating. Location is very close to both downtown and the NC State campus. We would stay here again.

adequate

The experience was uneventful. Ruins were very clean, staff was excellent. The only complaint I would have is when I would relax to watch the TV it was hard to get it to function properly...which may be their service provider.

VG Location, Nice Facility

This hotel seemed new and fresh. The room was very clean, had good decor and upkeep. The Continental Breakfast was good. Location was right off of I-40 in a quiet section south of the NC State campus and very convenient. Eateries were just a short distance away. I would definitely stay here again

college visit

Stayed 2 nights while visiting ncsu. The hotel was very comfortable and a very good value. Close to everything. Lobby breakfast was good and had a large choice of foods and drinks. Quiet, updated, and nice. Would stay there anytime.
