Raleigh Wedding trip

We were happy with the hotel. The only complaint is that they do not provide any safes in the rooms nor do they provide any place to safely keep your property secured when you are away from your room. The staff was excellent, room comfortable and clean.

Good value

The motel was clean, the room was large and well furnished. The continental breakfast was filling and though we came later a staff person had refurbished and cleaned the breakfast area. Negatives: It was a bit farther from downtown Raleigh (about 5 miles) than I thought, but the city has free weekend parking. Neighboring guests were loud and spewed inappropriate language (though this was not necessarily the motels fault). Overall, the motel was worth the cost and I'd stay there again.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Downtown Raleigh has days worth of free activities: the state museums of science and history, the old capitol and new statehouse. Free weekend parking and all the activities are a few blocks away.

This hotel was really nice-slightly modern-though my room did not have a fridge or Micro-wave. WIFI worked well. Breakfast buffet was your basic fare. Location to where I wanted to be was excellent!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The traffic in Raleigh is a show--almost no one uses their turning signals and stop lot waits can be excessive. That being said, there is a lot to do in Raleigh.

Nice place to stay

I only stayed for one night but I had no complaints. The staff was really nice, the location is perfect (just 3 miles from center city) and the room was ordinary, yet clean. The breakfast was good and there was no lines. Best part is that it was quiet at night... (then again, that might depend on other guests).

very basic

This hotel is perfect....IF you aren't going to be spending much any time at it. It was smelly, the pillows and bedding were a joke, and the staff was not friendly. However, the location is ideal for a very short drive into Raleigh or a cheap cab ride. In addition, the continental breakfast, while not gourmet, is better than most cheap hotel free breakfasts.

Not a great Experience!

When I booked it was clear that I was paying for a suite, got there and the staff told me all they had available and the room we was given, was the last room that was available. I didn't like the room especially paying $100.37 for it, so not worth it. Will never stay here again!!!
