Best Western Raleigh North-Downtown
Ranked #39 of 87 Hotels in Raleigh
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Decided to stay for a night and choose the Best Western Raleigh North and it was a extremely good move on our part. Gave a great discount for being retired military and the room was awesome. We would advise anyone either for fun, business or any other reason to choose this hotel for the best bang for your buck.

Not a bad deal on Priceline for just an overnight stay. The hallway I was on smelled a little like a grateful dead concert but room was ok. Would probably stay here again for the price but I would consider looking a little further out of town first.

Thank you for your recent review of your stay at the Best Western Raleigh North Downtown. I was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay and found the hotel to be a good value for the price you paid. Our hotel is 100% non smoking and the staff tries their best to prevent any type of smoking in the rooms. If we can pinpoint which guest is smoking, we will kindly ask the guest to cease smoking. If they fail to abide by the rules we will ask them to leave the property. We want all of our guests to walk into the rooms and hotel and not have any types of odors lingering in the air. I hope the next time you visit Raleigh you will stay with us again. Thank you for your business.

Breakfast bar didn't reflect website, smell in room, construction trucks parked @ bedroom window woke us up @ 6 am each morning. Hallway carpet dingy, hard to get into & out of due to right @ exit ramp to highway. Fan in bathroom ran the whole stay; not way to turn off.

Thank you for your recent review. I apologize that the items on the Breakfast Presentation did not meet the expectations that you desired. We are working very hard to listen to what our guests would like to see on the Breakfast presentation.We are currently making significant changes to the presentation and the room has been completely renovated and truly is a great place to sit and enjoy your breakfast. I hope that if you return to Raleigh you will give us another chance. Thank you for your business.

I was in Raleigh for a conference and stayed here instead of the conference hotel one exit away. At half the price, BW had more amenities - free Wi-Fi that worked just fine, free breakfast (Limited selections, but served in a spacious, pleasant area - good coffee)microwave and refrigerator in room - and I had a two room king suite! Furnishings and decor were a little dated, but bed was very comfortable with many pillows. Non-smoking property was a plus for me. Very convenient location right off the interstate Plenty of free parking. Will stay here again when I have business in the North Raleigh or downtown area.

Room Tip: The suites were in a separate building in the back limited by key-swipe access. Very quiet.

It is a hotel.
It is fine.
Clean enough.
Usually stay in Choice hotels, so was not used to the lame brekkie. Pancake machine was like something out of a non-drug induced version of Wily Wonka so that was cool.
I like the new wallpaper, furnishings, lighting they are putting up in the brekkie and check in area.When you are reading all of Siskel and Ebert's reviews on hotels, ya gotta remember that people are normally going to take the time to write when they are annoyed rather than when they had a fine stay.

Room Tip: Choose one with a bed so you don't end up sleeping in the sink or atop the tv.

excellent, enjoyable stay at Best Western, Capitol Blvd, Raleigh, North Carolina. Our senior softball team was playing in a tournament at Walnut Creek Softball Park. We took fourteen players and won the silver metal. Last year we stayed at the same Best Western on Capitol Blvd. and won the gold metal.
