Recent guest reviews

The location was perfect, the staff was very friendly. Place was clean, and smelled fresh. Only real issue I had was the bed was a bit firm for my liking, and the pillows were terrible. Overall, for the price it wasn't bad.

Stayed here for a night and had a very cozy night in. The room was very spacious and clean. The bed was a king and was just a little tough but the pillows were a-ok! Nothing to complain about.

The room was clean, the breakfast was good and the bed was comfortable. I would recommend this motel.

It was a very cold night front desk close at 10:00 p.m. After 10pm you have to ring the bell and then someone will come outside where you check in through a small window outside in the cold . The room was freezing it took the heater 4hrs to get it to acceptable temp. We could smell weed through the vents. The room itself is clean though.

The hotel was clean, the bed was comfortable, the front desk staff was super friendlly, and the breakfast was decent. The location was perfect for my stay. There are numerous freeways near making it a breeze to move around. Factoring in the rate and comfort it's great for travelers on the go.

Guests were a bit noisy, but hotel staff handled the situation well.

The room was good size, appeared to be clean to standards, good lighting in the bath which is hard to find these days, but, the tv only picked up one station, could not even change the stations with remote or on the Tv. The phone was dead so I could not call the front desk. There was a couple in the room below mine that was outside drinking and being loud past 11:00 and they were climbing in and out of their window to have access to their room. The gang in the parking lot was somewhat loud and rude, so I tried to stay clear of any confrontations with them. I am a business traveler and would not recommend this hotel at it's present.

Hotel is located on the highway exit ramp. Its difficult to access. The bathroom sink was leaking sewer gas when the drain was open. had to keep it closed and water in the sink at all times to prevent the odor from escaping.

I was in town for the IBMA convention downtown. This was an easy 12 minute drive to downtown. Good hot breakfast each day, and much lower price than the downtown hotels. One tip- when leaving this hotel to go downtown, if you exit right from the driveway you have a very short distance in traffic to get over three lanes. Go through the Dunkin Doughnuts parking lot to the street to the north, which gives you a traffic light to make the right turn.

Stayed only one night 12/27/16 and even having a non smoking room, we felt a smoky smell in it. But the worst thing was that somebody activated the smoke alarms in my building at 3:30am, everybody (including us) ran out of their rooms, even two fire trucks came...and it was a false alarm.

Stayed 4 nights for a long weekend in a two queen deluxe room. The room was supposed to sleep 5 people with the pull-out couch, but the pull-out couch was so terribly unconformable that it was unable to be slept on. The two queen beds were pretty comfortable, though the linens were very thin and cheap. Overall the room was spacious and allowed for myself and 3 friends to enjoy a weekend in Raleigh, but I don't know that it would be my first choice for a return trip.

Very spacious rooms, clean and attractive. Very comfortable stay. Walls are thin, though.

Stayed for three nights. Clean and comfortable. Great location near to family. Grandson visited and time in the pool was lots of fun. Breakfast offers many choices and there is variety offered on different mornings.

If you are looking for a nice hotel that is inexpensive this is a great option. It is directly next to I-40 so if you plan on doing a lot of driving this location is ideal considering you can get to anywhere in the city fast. I would definitely stay here again

Towels were sparse and were not available until after 1030am

This hotel is okay if you just need some where affordable/cheap to stay for one night. I prefer to stay at Embassy Suites when I'm in Raleigh, but I got this room for $60 & called it a night. The bathrooms need a serious upgrade.

Great service. Front desk clerk was very nice. Hotel is well kept and very secured. I would highly recommend a stay there versus any other hotel on the block.

This hotel was clean and spacious. It was a good value for the money. Location was okay, no light, made it hard to get out onto Capital Blvd...over all good though!

Hotel was worth the price!!! Very roomy and clean.

It was nice and clean in a nice quiet location. I will stay again

one night without rest
