Very Bad Smell

Posted Apr 9, 2018
I did not stay. The room smelled so bad, I almost became physically ill.

We requested and it was confirmed a King "NON SMOKING" room. When we first entered the room, it was nice. There was a king and double bed. Went into the bathroom and noticed we had 1/4 roll of toilet paper. So I went to office and requested more and 2 more towels. She asked my why and then with a frown, gave them to me. We were in a hurry and didn't pay much attention to the room and we didn't noticed the smoke smell at that time. We turned up the heat and then left. When we returned much later, I kind of noticed the smell, but, wasn't sure. It wasn't till the middle of the night, I woke up and was so stuffed up, My husband had the same problem. The smoke smell was very strong. I think when I turned on the heat, it stirred up the smoke smell. Also, when you flushed the toilet, water leaked out from the bottom. When I pulled the towel floor mat off the tub to wipe up the water, there were cigarette burns all along the tub. The room was very dirty. Stains were in all the chairs. Mold was on the bottom of the shower curtain. When we checked out of the room, we told the man (owner)about the water that leaked when you flushed the toilet and he got very defensive and yelled at my husband that they always check everything and there wasn't anything wrong! Due to the smoke, very dirty room, and attitude of the owners, we will never stay here again!

Not impressed!

We travel with two very well behaved dogs and clean-up all of their outdoor droppings. We made sure the dogs were not in the room when cleaning was to be performed. However, our room was not serviced unless we requested it from the maid. We had to get towels from her cart and ask that the carpet be vacuumed. Our beds were never made and we had to put the trash outside the door. The ad says "pet friendly", and we paid $20 a night extra for the dogs. The water pressure in the shower was awful. We will never stay in this motel, again.

Whatever happened to you and sorry from humble but you should say in the office desk so we will gladly correct it. Pet friendly means welcome the pet but have to pay extra for the guest as human.so next time please be with us and we will make a happy to you.

Pros: The water worked and they had old but seemed to be clean towels.
Cons: lol Complete makeover would be a nice start.
Location: Shopping nearby is nice! Bought a great mattress from the Mattress Firm near Olive Garden! ( See Ricky )
The staff was nice enough and the price is ok but when I woke up with bugs all over me and my pillow I had enough of the Budget Inn. Also don't walk barefooted because of the sharp tacks in the carpet. Other than that enjoy your stay!

Definitely recommended for the no-frills traveler.

Pros: The staff was pleasant. The room was clean. The location provided easy access to the highway. The WiFi signal was strong.
Cons: Although I have stated that the room was clean, I did have a minor pest issue. Certainly no infestation or health concern. Just an unexpected guest.
Location: The motel is situation between Youngsville and Franklinton. There are; a nationally recognized drug store, grocery store, gas and fast food within 1m
Visiting my family in the Kittrel area this past week (9.12-19.16) and decided to book a room for a couple nights at this location. I have to admit what attracted me was it's proximity and price. I will base my rating on the merits of price vs expectations. I believe that you get what you pay for. That being said, I can happily recommend this motel to anyone who is looking for a place to stop for the night. Or, also, as a base to explore the area. The WiFi connection is strong. My room came with a mini-fridge and microwave. Which, I am not sure was listed in the room description, but a pleasant surprise. The other guests were a diverse crowd of traveling families, construction workers on assignment and locals looking for a night out of the house. The location being on US1 between Raleigh and Henderson, gives you easy access to the surrounding area. Particularly if, you are like me, and enjoy a good drive in the country. Be advised that traffic on US1 from Raleigh north to Franklinton does experience regular congestion on the weekdays between 3-6:00pm. It is a roadside motel in all of the traditional sense.

Cheap Accommodations. You DO get what you pay for.

Posted May 11, 2015
Pros: Great air conditioning and large room. New large TV.
Cons: Clean everything, remove the stains from the linens, and fix what needs to be fixed
Location: Not really much of interest around. There are a number of supermarkets and places to eat but not many attractions.
I was a little hesitant to visit this motel but I needed to stay somewhere cheap. I requested a non-smoking room and the room reeked of smoke. The bed had a top and bottom sheet and the bed spread - no blanket at all. There was black hairs on the stained pillow cases and the stained towels. I believe they were clean but just stained. There was something melted (or that melted) on the vanity. The grout in the bathroom was stained brown and the cleanliness of toilet itself was questionable. The wallpaper was peeling and all of the furniture and fixtures were worn. On the positive side the air conditioner worked very well and I actually needed to turn it warmer after about 15 minutes after being off all day. The TV was large and new and there was a coffee maker with free coffee. The room was quite large and there was plenty of room with only one king sized bed.

If you just need a place to lie your head

There are not that many choices around Wake Forest to stay. The few ones that are available are in a much higher price category. I generally don't stay in hotels that are less than 3 stars because I am always worried when I turn out the lights. This place was fine with regards to that but It was okay for a couple of nights.

It is what it is, not too much! Biggest complaint, hairs on the white bathroom floor.
