Close to RDU airport; cost vs. quality
Posted Jan 7, 2017
Rooms are very nice. My room had a king bed. The room is not a suite, but it had a partial divider in the form of a screen or a half-wall that separated the bed area from a sectional sofa/TV area. I liked this layout. Additionally, the room had a clothes iron, refrig, desk, coffee maker. The only partial negative I had was that the bathroom was quite small; however, this was probably just a perception on my part, because the bathroom/shower functioned perfectly well.
I was happy there was an included breakfast, and it was 'OK'. It included french toast and scrambled eggs along with fruits, juices, cereals and more. I can't say it was my favorite hotel free breakfast, but it was decent. The french toast had been sitting for a bit, and there was a egg mcmuffin-like sandwich that didn't seem to hold up well under the heat lamps.
One other comment, which may seem a bit silly. This hotel is very close to the airport, and the landing flight path went directly over the hotel such that it was a bit loud inside my room whenever a plane landed. Fortunately, this is not a terribly busy airport and it was NOT so loud as to keep me awake at night.
Note that my comments are all rather minor and I still am giving this stay an 'excellent' rating, especially as I paid just about the same price as the neighboring similar quality hotels.
