“Way better than I would have expected”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

We did a long spring break drive down I-95. This hotel was a great find. Convenient to the interstate. Friendly staff. Clean room, if smallish. The free breakfast was over the top: healthy selections and hearty choices too. Cracker Barrel next door offered a decent dinner the night we arrived.

We were on our way to Myrtle Beach and found a great price for our 1 bedroom (2 queen bed) room. We requested a roll out bed and had one delivered before we made it to the room. Continental breakfast in the morning and couldn't be any closer to hop back on 95 in the morning. great stay

I was travelling to NYC for business and had to stay overnight somewhere on the way and picked this location because they had a good price on American Airlines website.

The room was excellent and perfectly clean, bed was comfortable, water pressure was good. Can't find anything to pick on, really.

Room Tip: You can buy Krispy Kreme donuts at a large gas station on the other side of I-95.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Wilson on our way down to Florida for New Years. The hotel was perfectly comfortable, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. We got the last smoking room which was a King suite with a jacuzzi tub at a reasonable price. The only reason for the 4-star review is that for about an hour, we had no hot water at the tub, but after that time it warmed up and the rest of our experience was flawless.

We used this hotel as a quick overnighter on our way to Florida. We arrived late at night and got our rooms without issue. The rooms were good, seemed clean, and were quiet, and when we left before breakfast in the morning they had coffee on! The bathroom was incredibly small, but had lots of hot water. The Hotel is nicely decorated as well.

I wonder if this motel started out as another chain. It isn't as nice as other HIE's that I've stayed in. The worst part was it must of been weeks since the area behind the bathroom door was cleaned. There is only about 18" between the end of one of the beds (we had a room with 2 queen beds) and the chair for the desk. The sink is outside the bathroom-Uck!. The lighting is lacking throughout the room and especially bad over the sink. The furniture was in good condition,comfortable mattress and the internet was fast and dependable.
I could write a book about the nightmare of our attempt to have breakfast. It was supposed to start at 6:30, which I think is late. There was a bus load of people. They crowded the food area at 6:40 as the server was still putting out food. We settled for a bagel with peanut butter and ate in our room. It seems to me that the management should have extra help when they know there is a group that will all want breakfast at the same time. There is no excuse, in my opinion, to not have all breakfast items out by the stated time breakfast starts.

The dumpster, which must have been very close to our room, was emptied at 4:40 a.m. Although not the management's fault, this is another reason I wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere-there are many other motels within 1/2 mile.

We appreciate all feedback about our hotel and appreciate yours as it gives us idea and input on where we need to improve. The tour buses are new business for us and based on your input and that of others, we are considering several options for how to better manage the flow through the breakfast bar when buses are in house. Once again, thank you for your feedback and I am sorry that your stay was not a positive one. We hope to see you again in the future and change that.
