Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 115 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great service, comfortable beds, attentive staff. Staff was all courteous, friendly and helpful. Young man apologized for the broken pool heat element and said it was to be fixed the day after we got there. He brought fresh towels. Buffet breakfast provided large number of options. Young woman hostess/waitress was extremely pleasant and regularly offered assistance. Security staff and check in/out staff always greeted us at each encounter and grounds were immaculate. Truly nice quiet location and new-ish property with comfortable guest rooms and close to many shops and eating. August 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Even though I had to be in the area for business, staying at your Holiday Inn was the best. The atmosphere, staff, comfort, cleanliness, and oh my the chef, Carlos was amazing. The food was absolutely wonderful. August 20, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff Each staff member I encountered was friendly. When I was going down the steps and found ice and water all over the 3rd floor landing I immediately told the front desk person and she was very appreciative and got right on it. The chef was WONDERFUL...Carlos. The bar staff guy was great, too, can't remember his name. The front desk staff was very nice at check-in. No complaints here! August 19, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly Atmosphere All employees are quick to be courteous and responsive. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable and Clean The room was very satisfying. The TV worked properly. Remote was easy to use. Water pressure in shower was good. The only thing that was a little tricky for me was accessing the internet. I figured it out but it took me a moment to get it. August 18, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ants in the Bathroom I know it is the season for this, but there were many ants in the bathroom. The AC knob was also broken in this room. I am not a complainer, so I did not report it or request to be moved, but as a member, I would hope that my next stay I could be in a better room. I would prefer that over the bag of trail mix and bottled water. Thanks! August 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceeded our expectations Wish I slept this good at home. Excellent, beds, linens and pillows. Nice little bar which was perfect for our needs. Solid breakfast. Friendly and professional staff. August 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stay would recommend They seemed to be making a lot of repairs to the hotel. The Cafe had a nice soup and small bar. Staff was very friendly. I will be visiting this hotel again if in the area. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best place to stay Convenient to everything yet out of the way with plenty of parking. Many restaurants nearby. They has a managers buffet during the week. They also had a new dinner menu which I look foreward to trying on my next stay. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DayTripper Nice hotel in a good location. Quiet rooms with comfortable beds and pillows. August 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The Staff The staff is what makes this hotel a great place to stay. Every staff member was polite and friendly. While the hotel may be a bit dated the staff more than makes up for it. August 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable suite...Good Location This motel was clean and comfortable. I guess because it is a suite, we were not offered the complementary breakfast that we have come to expect as Platinum Members and we were not offered the option of earning 500 pts instead of the check-in snack. Staff were friendly and helpful in every other way ! We enjoyed our stay ! August 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by everything was great I wish all my stays were all like this. Always satisfied with Holiday Inn August 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Friendly Staff Staff was very friendly checking in and out. The room was clean, but there was some wear and tear on some of the furniture and some water spots on the ceiling. If you don't like hard beds, it might be a long night. But the pillows were very soft. For their customer service, I give them a 100. August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Best Breakfast Buffet ever!! The staff was so friendly! They had food & lemonade in the lobby! The rooms were nice & bed was cumfy! Nothing like good old Southern Hospitality!! August 3, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor roof maintenance/ great staff- 4 different rooms The staff were extremely kind and apologetic for mistakes. Room 1- 624 had a leak in the bathroom; it was obvious this was a long standing leak that had been patched. Room 2- 602 was so mildewy I couldn't stay in it; also the ceiling was sagging above the bed from previous leaks. Room 3 - 310 had holes in the walls and ceiling of the bathroom were the plumbing shaft had been accessed. Room 4- 418 was great! They upgraded us to a king suite no problems except after we checked in and were all settled another guest used a room key and came into our room. I think I'll checkout another hotel chain. I wonder if we were given less than ideal rooms because we purchased rooms through a discount group rate. July 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service, convenient and restful. I recently spent three nights in the hotel while at a training session in Raleigh along with five co-workers. The hotel is located less than a mile from the highway, easy to find and in a quiet area filled with office complexes. The street is tree lined with wide sidewalks good for walking or running and pretty landscaping everywhere. Tons of restaurants, shopping and a movie theater very close. Check in and check out were quick and effortless, the lobby and rooms were spotless, bed comfortable with nice linens and pillows, decent water pressure and very quiet. There was a pool and small gym that we did not use but I observed others enjoying. I had a fridge in my room and another member of our group had a microwave in hers. We asked for both for all rooms, but none were available at the time. It would be nice for all rooms to have that feature as a standard. There were soda and snack machines on each floor but ice machines are only on 2,4 and 6. The staff was excellent! We were all impressed with the level of personal customer service they provided. We were greeted every trip through the lobby by Lisa who made sure we had everything we needed and answered any questions about the hotel or the area. We utilized the complimentary Managers Reception one evening. It was excellent! The lobby is comfortable, free coffee bar was good and had several options, the food from the cafe was very good and there were several breakfast options that are not listed on the menu in the rooms that are more affordable. We enjoyed our stay. July 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wish all my hotel stays were this relaxing and enjoyable My wife and I were on a mini road trip vacation and we stayed only one night on the way to our destination. This location was about 1 mile off the main freeway, in an office park type setting. While there were numerous hotels all around the exit on the freeway, the extra mile was worth because it was much quiet in the office park setting, away from the highway noise. The location is also very convenient to many well known chain restaurants and stores. The hotel was very clean, modern and comfortable. It had free parking, a clean and well lit parking lot and entry. The check in was quick and harmless and the front desk staff very professional and courteous. I wish I could remember her name (Effina??). I also had spoke by phone with Brice whom I did not meet but was very professional, courteous and welcoming via the phone. Both these individuals made the difference with super positive first impressions. I received a genuine warm welcome and immediate thanks for being an IHG Platinum member. Our room was quiet and spotless. No road noise or other noise from within the hotel was heard. We had a small suite with microwave and fridge. Bed was super comfy and linens clean and crisp. This hotel was the first of four different hotels I stayed in during our one week road trip. It was also the best of the four, and had the best staff. The desk personnel at checkout were also very personable and friendly. I would suggest that the side entry to the hotel have a ramp installed. It was steps only and with suitcases on wheels and hands full, my wife dropped a bag of belongings that spilled in the walkway. A slanted ramp may have helped prevent that small mishap. Otherwise, I do not think anyone can go wrong staying here; highly recommended! July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay in Raleigh! We planned an overnight trip to Raleigh to attend a concert. This HI was conveniently located and very clean and comfortable. Overall, a great stay. July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and friendly staff I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling in the area. July 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Missing Microwave The microwave was missing from our room which made heating up food from dinner the night before impossible. July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable bed and great service we stayed 3 nights and the staff was great and room very comfortable. July 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Staff and Service was very accommodating Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were a bit smaller than expected. Ice machine on even numbered floors. Had to go up a flight to get ice. The elevators were a bit small and w/o ac as well as the hallways. No continental breakfast. We had to request ahead of time m/w and fridge, so that we brought our own foodstuffs. Mattress was too soft if you need firm support. Hotel needs additional carts for luggage. Lobby was nice and staff was willing to help in any way possible. I would stay there again due to points added to my Holiday Inn membership card. But overall it was OK. July 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient , clean and friendly This Holiday Inn is clean, updated, with friendly staff who solved a problem we had with the room in a timely fashion. The hotel is in a convenient location with lots of amenities but without all the freeways surrounding it. You can walk in the morning on tree-lined sidewalks or walk over to the movie theatre and plenty of shopping. July 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Hotel The staff is kind and friendly. The hotel does not have a shuttle but does have places to eat and visit within walking distance. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better Service than the Ritz After a 12 hour road trip with 1 year old twins who did not sleep in the car and a hail storm, we arrived at the hotel at 1am only to find out I had booked the room for the following weekend. Shan at the front desk jumped into action. She went floor by floor and searched every maid closet until she found us two cribs. She got us extra pillows and sheets and personally showed us the room and made sure we were settled in. In the meantime, my husband had called other local hotels who turned us down because they don't provide cribs in the middle of the night. The room is great - we have a suite which has a door that closes off the master bedroom which makes a big difference when you are traveling with kids. The rooms are spacious with a refrigerator and very clean. The staff here is overly accommodating and so pleasant. We tried to tip Shan and she refused it graciously saying that she was just doing her job. I will stay here on all of my trips to Cary and also book holiday inns for the rest of our trip.
