The hotel is definitely family friendly. I traveled with my family which include a 1 year old and a 6 year old. Needless to say, they touch everything in sight and in their reach. The cleanliness of the hotel, I was not scared to let them play or touch stuff. A special thank you to Melissa who assisted us with any concerns we had. Thanks again. Will definitely stay here again when visiting NC.

This is 3rd time I’ve stayed here. They upgraded me to suite for free which was nice and unexpected. I like because it is close to daughter’s apartment, easy drive to NCSU, airport and is safe.

Hit or miss on staff. Housekeeping started vacuuming outside our door (literally banging the door) at 9am on a Sunday. We were on the first floor near side exit. Doors slamming. Trash being taken out all hours. Side door wouldn’t close / lock. Older hotel that had had a coat of paint slapped on it. Cinnamon rolls at breakfast were cold. Just not typical

First time here. Appears to be rather new facility. Clean, quiet rooms and close to dining/shopping venues. Staff was friendly and helpful. Felt safe as a female traveler by herself this trip. Highly recommended!!!

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The breakfast was my favorite - lots of great options. The location is convenient and easy to find; it is close to downtown and some local attractions. They advertise having a hot tub on Expedia even though it has been broken for 2 months and it would take another month to fix it - that's deceptive advertising right there! Their housekeeping people start knocking on doors at 10:30am - VERY irritating, especially because we checked in around 9pm and we were totally looking to sleep in.

Would live here if I could
The staff was amazing and accommodating!! The room was spacious and clean and beyond expectation. I would love to stay there again. We didn't wake up in time for breakfast but it smelled nothing like a regular hotel setup.
