Terrible, police was dispatched 3 times while there. Never again. Said there was a pool and no pool

The hotel was comfortable, clean and spacious. I wish the lights would have been a little brighter, but all together it was a great stay!

Me and my husband were taking our daughter for her freshman year at NCSU. We were very shocked at how the outside of the building was run down, dirty and just plain nasty. The location was not very safe if our opion. The room needed some updating and the floors to be cleaned better. The outside door looked like someone had tried to break in and it was not flush with the wall. It looked bent and not square. We will NEVER stay there or at a Super 8 again. We were extremely upset and disappointed with the condition of the WHOLE complex. We wanted to leave early but we would have lost our $ so we stayed anyway. The complimentary breakfast was a joke and they only served from 6 to 9. The first morning when we came down after 9 we found out that they only serve for a short period of time. Not a good way to win customers for return visits. Their was not much food out when we come the 2nd morning so we just left.

Very close to downtown at about 1/3 the price. Front desk clerk was friendly. Hotel was average. Not bad for overnight.

Great location, it was in the heart of everything. The breakfast could have been better ( I would have liked some eggs,sausage, beacon) All and All it was good. I loved the refrigerator, microwave and Internet

This hotel was much cheaper than most of the other places around. We were in town for one night for a conference and it suited our purposes perfectly. The continental breakfast was pretty wiped out when we went to check it out, but other than that I was pleased. I'd stay there again.

TV Remote Control and the Microwave did not work.

We asked for non-smoking, but it smelled like smoke anyways. Doublebed room was okay size...it was only for an overnight visit, so it was ok for the money spent. Two Problems we had that night was: 1)the shower handle broke off and the maintenance man was gone for the evening. The staff was NOT helpful at all 2)and outside of the hotel was ant infested...these tiny red ants were all over the place! I put my baby's car seat on the ground for a minute so i can open up our car door...by the time i picked it back up, i noticed over a dozen ants climbing all over her car seat. So, i took the baby out immediately and searched the rest of the car seat. I found over 20 ants in her car seat!! I got bit in the foot 3 times by those ants JUST BY WALKING TO MY CAR...BE CAREFUL!! I wouldnt recommend this motel to someone with young children.

There was a complimentary breakfast so that was nice. I also liked that there was a refrigerator and microwave in the room. The constant odor was very bothersome throughout the night. It was quiet but the beds were so uncomfortable. I got what I paid for and I probably won't be staying there again. It was a last minute decision.

Needed convienient location to two conference sites and easy access from the highway. Inexpensive, clean and near several food choices.

For one night it was OK. The hotel was very close to a major highway and the noise of the traffic made it hard to sleep. Room was large and clean. Breakfast was nothing exceptional. Staff was friendly.

There were cockroaches flying around the room in the middle of the night, ants by the sink me and my friends had to spray with hairspray to kill. There was mold on the shower ceiling and burn holes in the comforters in a "Non smoking" room. I complained and asked for a refund of some sort. The manager, Vivian Smallwood, said she couldn't refund anything since I booked with your company. Please contact me

Could not walk to the train or bus station with my bags and child. I would not recommend pay more than 50 bucks for the run down Hoetel. Had to pay 33 bucks from the airport to the hoetel, because there was no shuttle, and when I got there the doors were locked, and my son was in a need of a restroom.

The room was clean and the staff was cooperative. The motel was convenient for my travel needs. The area was quiet and I felt safe. The bed was very comfortable. I would stay there again.
