“Always a pleasure to stay!”
Reviewed 14 March 2013 via mobile

I frequent this hotel and have enjoyed each stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. Mike, a receptionist at the front desk, made sure that issues that came up were handled swiftly and cheerfully. Teresa, who prepares breakfasts, goes the extra mile to make everyone feel welcome and have a quality meal.

A nice place to stay overnight where the staff is more than accommodating, freindly and willing to offer assistance in a very clean and updated hotel. The breakfasts offered a wide variety of items, both cold and hot.

Room Tip: Rooms are very clean, well lit, and extremely comfortable!!!

Yes, the room was clean and spacious (including couch with coffee table, mini fridge and microwave). However, the room itself just felt a little musty. There were some weird marks on the walls. The front desk was tiny, with only one girl working, but she was nice enough. I unfortunately was there the same night as some boy's soccer team or something... they were loud! Otherwise, I had a decent night's sleep. But the "breakfast"... it didn't look too appetizing. I took a piece of toast steered clear of everything else. Couldn't even get juice because the machine was broken. Overall, I was there one night on business, and it was satisfactory enough for that purpose! If you're looking for a quick night stay with good value, this is your place. If you're looking for luxury, the Holiday Inn is not for you!

Dear Allison738,

Thank you for your feedback. We take our guest comments very seriously and always strive to provide comfortable and friendly accommodations. We appreciate your nice comment regarding cleanliness.

However, We’re sorry we fell below your expectation regarding breakfast, front desk and the noise during your stay. We will look into this point. I assure you the feedback of our hotel will be reviewed and most certainly forwarded to the appropriate departments. We take the confidence our guests place in us very seriously and work diligently to rectify any unsatisfactory experiences. We hope you give us a chance in the future to show you how great our hotel is.

Sincerely,

Orlando A.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. I was very impressed with the people at the front desk and the room was great. I had to ask housekeeping for clean towels ( we didn't need them to clean the room) and she was very helpful. T he beds were comfortable and breakfast was good. I would highly recomend this place.

My wife and I were very pleased. The facility looks new but I am told it is 10 years old. A warm North Carolina greeting at the desk. Comfy beds, good sized room and bathroom, all larger than what we generally see when we stop in New York state.
And the best included breakfast. Excellent bacon, biscuits, surprisingly good scrambled eggs. Gravy, bagels, pancake maker. This was quite the deal. And the dining area is pretty.
We were there in December, so no swimming. The pool was not covered yet. It was nicely nestled in an attractive courtyard. Small but clean, inviting.

Everything was great!! Quick check in, very friendly help, large room and bath, everything very clean and comfortable. Speaking of comfortable ... the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.
The breakfast was great and had almost anything you were looking for. The lady that worked the breakfast buzzed around and made sure you had what you needed. She was so friendly and helpful. Check out was a breeze. I highly recommend this place if you any where in he area.

Reviewed 20 October 2012

Room was clean, but the minute we walked in it had that "hotel" smell. Walls are very thin - we were on the second floor and the guest on the floor above us did a lot of heavy walking until 2am. You can hear every shower and toilet flush. The hotel is new enough and complimentary breakfast is the typical breakfast. Breakfast room is nice. One nice thing - the window opened a few inches and it was great to get fresh air in the room and not have the annoying air on. Front desk staff were friendly.

If your expecting a typical holiday inn, this one is in the middle - not the greatest Holiday Inn I have stayed in and not the worse one.

Everyone mentioned this hotel is a bit hard to find - you can't see it from the road.

Located back in that hidden neighborhood is a movie theater and a Starbucks. Not many coffee shops in Wake Forest.

Room Tip: I would try the third floor, might be quieter.
