This hotel couldn't have been better for our son and new daughter-in-laws reception. Only problem was when they double the points for us to stay 1 extra night when we couldn't get back into our home due to Hurricane Matthew that happened that weekend.

Stay away if you want to have control over your heating/cooling options. During this time of the year the hotel switched over to heating only but it was hot in the room and hot outside. Unacceptable for the rate they are charging.

We stayed during the week for college tours. Room and location were very good. Only complaint was that the heat was not working until 11:00 pm and our room was cold. Fortunately we were exhausted and just went under the covers.

Great hotel with a staff that seem to like what they do. Room was perfect and very nicely set up. We checked in, got an upgrade, met with smiles from staff. They did not have cookies ready when we got there, so the host who checked us in met us with them in the lobby. She forgot nothing. Highly recommend.

Also, lots of outside noise including conversations in the parking lot 5 floors below and garbage trucks at 6am. And there is no mini-fridge in the room. during checkout, I was told I should have alerted them at check-in to my...

The staff was very nice and I had a stay with no complaints. Free parking is always welcome. Walking distance to NC State University and a slightly longer walk to downtown Raleigh. Breakfast was pretty good as well.

Room smelled of feet. The heat takes an hour to turn on.Check out is a mess. Employees don't know how to check out if there was a charge that morning at breakfast. I expected a lot more for $189 per night. Location is awful - college town and no parking or things to do.
