Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Raleigh North - Wake Forest

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 January 2012

I agree with classactj. I've never seen such foolishness going on at this hotel. It was more geared toward the business class customer at one time. This time I felt like I was in a Section 8 housing project. I saw unsupervised kids roaming freely and disturbing the other guests. If I were the manager, I would not allow this at my hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure there are no unattended, loud kids on your floor.

I use to be a frequent guest at this hotel until two weeks ago. At one time this hotel was clean, quiet, and nice. To my surprise, during my last stay I noticed a quick decline in the quality of the hotel and some of the guests. I could not enjoy a good night's sleep due to noise being made by kids at 12:00 a.m. in the hallway. Where are the parents? I also tried to use the computer and the same kids were hoarding the computer. I don't know if this hotel is under new management, but it has truly changed, and not for the better. I felt like I was at a Motel 8. I'm truly disappointed, as I once enjoyed staying here.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the 2nd floor. Too much noise.

Very quite and in a convient location just off US1. Breakfast was just ok - needs some work to make it worth stopping by for.

I have stayed here twice and each time I have had nothing but nice things to say about this place. Friendly staff, very comfortable beds, great shower head, and overall nice rooms. My one complaint would be GETTING TO THE HOTEL!. I was told the city of Raleigh won't allow them to put up signs, but they have got to do a better job at telling people how to get there. My GPS took me all the way through the neighborhood next door and then by the time I got to the hotel, there was a tiny sign saying Holiday Inn Express Hotel...

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, anytime. Just hope they can find it.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in the Wake Forest area during a week long business trip in November of 2011. The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. It was a little tough to locate as there is no signage on the roadway. It is also accessed through a street off of the main highway that it appears to front on. By the looks of it, the municipality in the area must prohibit business signage, as there are no signs for any businesses in the area. It made it very difficult for visitors like myself to find local businesses. There is not much to do in the hotel as it does not have a restaurant or bar. However, there are several chain restaurants and bars in the area. Otherwise, there is not much to do in the area of the hotel. However, Raleigh is only 20 minutes down the road. The breakfast was the standard free hotel fare with some "cooked" eggs and pancakes available.
