Recent guest reviews

Always have a good experience here when I'm in town on business or visiting family. This location is tuck away from the main roads but not to far the shops. I highly recommend if your in town.

The hotel was very clean and generally comfortable. The hotel staff was exceptionally pleasant and always smiled and greeted me warmly. The walls were a tad thin and there was a good bit of noise to be heard (talking, doors opening and closing) which was distracting at times but not too obtrusive. The hotel is near a busy road but not heavy noise so it quickly became white noise and was easy to tune out. Was pleased with the overall experience although I do feel the cost was a tad high under the circumstances.

Close to major road but somewhat hidden from view, difficult to navigate to and from the hotel to the main road. Close to shopping, restaurants. Clean, quiet. No frills.

Staff very hospitable!! Very helpful and friendly. Being able to have breakfast there helped tremendously. I difemitely would recommend this place and stay there again!!'

the hotel was very clean , staff was very nice. was in town with my sister. to see my son who was gong to college in wake forest.

Overall a great stay - great value. Only downside was room was on the first floor and there was a youth soccer team(s) staying there with an early wake up and gathering in the lobby!

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.

I had a great time staying at this hotel. The location and staff were great.

The service was great & the room was very clean. The breakfast was nice and we will stay at his hotel & chain again.

It was really comfortable ! I would recommend for any couple .

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.

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.

Staff friendly and helpful, room clean and comfortable. Breakfast good.

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.

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.

Good experience. Cigar smoke in room so desk staff was happy to give us a different room. Clean & attractive. Pool was closed, though.

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Great experience. Would stay here again.

This Hotel is the perfect location for visitors to the Southeastern Seminary. The hot breakfast was awesome and no one in our group went hungry. The Staff was very polite and helpful. You will not be dissapointed with this choice.

A very pleasant surprise. Large, comfortable room, very clean with a large bathroom with adequate lighting (for a change!). Great location, close to the interstate and Falls of Neuse Road which leads to all points and for ten bucks a day you get to use the world's best fitness and wellness center at REX Wellness. That alone was worth twice the price we paid for the room. Highly recommended. We'll be back.

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.When we arrived they informed of the free hot breakfast that was served daily,they were also able to give us the directions that we needed.To sum it up we enjoyed our stay.
