Great hotel, new, clean and if that's not enough then Ask for Bill...he along with the rest of the staff are all about ensuring your satisfaction! Robert and Alva -

Found this hotel on short notice and had a great time no complaints! If you are looking for a nice clean hotel this is it. Staff were accomodating and friendly. Stayed in a pet friendly room since we had our dog and it was nice a clean.

This hotel was amazing and clean! The kids loved the pool and the breakfast was great. We will stay here again!

We took our kids to use the indoor pool during the winter and have a small adventure. The kids loved it. Very nice and clean hotel.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

I stay at this hotel every time I come to town for business at NCSU and it never disappoints!

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.

The staff n guest were great eggs horrible other breakfast foods ok for hotel breakfasts pool hot tubs nice beds excellant rooms noce

staff was wonderful, great heated indoor pool, and hot breakfast is included in price. was very relaxing!!!

The room was far from a suite. The bathroom was filthy, having soap film everywhere, as well as a filthy shower curtain that obviously had been used. There was trash all over the bathroom floor under the vanity probably due to a poor maid. The staff was offensive prompting us to leave early. We left early, lost money and were insulted by the manger. We have stayed in cheap rooms that were nicer than this hotel.

Convenient, clean, easy... perfect hotel in the price bracket. Would stay here again and again.

This is an acceptable choice if you're visiting the local campus or on business. This is a clean, relatively new facility on a hilltop corner with easy highway access. The room was typical for its level standard with comfortable but not exceptional bed and linens. Service was pleasant enough. Hotel provided breakfast of reasonable choice but no fresh fruit - not even bananas or apples. Nothing really stands out here as a positive or negative. Solid three stars.

It was a nice stay and enjoyed the cleanliness of hotel and room

Liked the hotel, staff was awesome but I wish they had an outdoor pool and it was a little far away from everything.

I enjoy staying in Holiday Inn Express's. This one is a smoke free hotel, very clean and great service. Friendly front desk personal. The key card had a promotion for a place to have dinner with a 15% discount. Great food and being a bar place it was great!
