Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EngineerInTraning Average quality for an average price.
My room was clean as expected. However, some issues made this overnight stay average at best. First, the window unit didn't work properly. The knob for turning the unit on and off was stripped and the compressor would cut on and off a few times before the unit shut off completely. The only way to get it to come back on was to turn it completely off and back on again and with a stripped knob, that wasn't easy to do. The air in my room remained stale because of the faulty unit and sleeping wasn't easy to do and I only managed 5 hours of sleep before an all day exam the next day. The automated wake up call system also wasn't working properly. I set a 5:45am wake up call the night before and double checked to make sure it was set. 5:45 came and went and the phone never rang. After a restless night, the shower was the final disappointment. More water came out around the shower head than what came through it, the bi-fold closet doors were barely attached to the wall, the tv reception was very grainy and some of the furniture was missing knobs, which made the place look cheap. I will be in the area again the same time next year but will probably chose different accomodations.

I found this hotel to be quite nice overall. The food service was great and the food decent. The lobby and lounge comfortable and the rooms clean and comfortable.

I really like this hotel- I just wish it were pet friendly since I bring my dog with me on most of my trips.

I have been stayin in that hotel since 2 years, for several times, and no matter what season, the breakfast buffet is always the same....nothing changes which is really boring and tiring

I would have liked more towels in the bathroom. Two bath towels per person is not too much to ask

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dwalker889 Clean, up to date room
The room was very clean and new looking, bed was comfortable, tv worked fine. I would not stay at this hotel for more than a day, because it did not have a refrigerator in the room. Being a AAA member, the 10% discount made me ineligible for the breakfast, which they wanted to charge 5.00 per person? Would of taken the base rate above the best available rate posted, so I declined. Also, tried to access the wireless internet on ipod, would not allow unless it was paid for, even though it is listed as free. Very clean hotel just not for me.

Our "free night" offer was about to expire, so the family booked one night at this hotel for a stay-cation. It was great! We were upgraded to a suite upon check-in, so we were able to spread out and relax. Spent some time in the pool which our 9-year-old loved. Staff made us feel special, like they don't see platinum members very often. I'm sure that they do, but everyone treated us extraordinarily well even though we were using the offer for a free night. We had a great time here, hope to do it again someday.

My wife and I recently stayed in Cary on our way to Benson, SC. We were impressed with the hotel and plan to make this the hotel we stay at on every trip down to the Benson area!

It felt good to arrive at our usual hotel in RDU. We had spent a week in various hotels, and the bed was the best night's sleep we had the hold time. Great room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim20 One of my best traveling experiences ever!
My son and his family recommended the hotel fro a stay the week before we stayed. He thought the people were awesome and he was right. I believe the front desk was manned by Cybernia (sp) and Greg was the bartender. Both bent over backward to make our stay a positive one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by wdki Warm, humid and smelly
Unfortunately this Holiday Inn didn't measure up to the normal standards.
The hallway on my floor was serviced by a non-functioning A/C unit, which made for a warm and stuffy sensation getting off the elevator.
My room had a very odd smell - or rather stench - to it, which was very unpleasant. I should have requested another room, but due to time of arrival chose not to.
At 8:00 AM the breakfast bar was very sparsely supplied, and not very appetizing.

Professional staff and great hot breakfast buffet! Rooms were clean and well maintained. There was plenty of shops and restaurants within a few miles and was very accessible to I40. Only negative was that there was no air conditioning in the elevators. The fitness room was small and hot but did have some free weights which I don't find too often at this level of hotel.

I have stayed here 3 times now. Rooms always smell musty.
Tiny bed pillows prevent putting arm under pillow while sleeping.
Good price, nice building, but the musty smell is real.
Newer hotels in the area. I'll stay at one of those going forward.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SLG1 Clean and comfortable - friendly but inattentive staff
I've stayed here several times on business. Location was great for my work. Rooms were always clean and comfortable but typically had some small but annoying problem like a really slow tub drain, a light bulb that was out, or a noisy air conditioner. Staff was very pleasant and friendly but didn't pay attention to detail, e.g. only supplied one bar of soap for both sink and bath, delivered a room service meal without a napkin and silverware, mixed up a charge on my bill, and the bar didn't have any wine on half price wine night.

This was our second time here. We liked the upgrade to the suite. Made our stay enjoyable. Buffet breakfast was good. Pool was nice and Jacuzzi was the best. Division II baseball teams were staying there also, but never felt crowded. The staff was always polite to us, and would offer with services. Will stay again next trip when visiting grandchildren. Would recommend this hotel to people.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MickeyG2013 Lawrence from front Desk/Hotel Breakfast
Lawrence from the front desk was AMAZING. He was very accommodating and made us feel right at home.
Breakfast Food/Silverware The Breakfast food was not the best I know Holiday Inns & Suites to be. It was Stale, Old & you had to pull back the top layer to get to what wasn't stiff. The Head chef should ALWAYS, ALWAYS have the FOOD FRESH!! I was too disappointed. The silver ware should NOT have food sticking on it from the previous guest. I had to get silverware 3 different times and then finally I just got it myself. This area should pay more detail to the Breakfast that's stale & the unsanitary utensils.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bobjr room, service, general
chairs in room were visibly worn and uncomfortable - general appearance of room was dark, musty, and uninviting - TV reception was mediocre
I do not drink wine or beer. When I asked the barperson if I could exchange my (2) complimentary (wine/beer) beverage coupons for a single mixed drink I was told that was not possible. I stay at Holiday Inns for more than 90% of my business travel - I never had an issue exchanging complimentary beverage coupons for something other than beer or wine.
my overall experience at this hotel can only be classified as a mistake. I will ensure that this hotel is removed from my list of suitable Holiday Inns in the Morrisville/Cary area in the future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SKMP Just ok stay
The stay was just ok. I am very particular where I sleep. The rooms were clean enough and the bed was comfortable. My issues came with towels. Both mornings my bath towels were stained. This means I saw someone else's bodily fluids!!! Grosss!! I did call down to the front desk and did receive different towels, but I shouldn't have had to do this two days in a row.
Breakfast ran until 11:00. We got down there around 10:15. We had to ask the wait staff to clean a table both mornings so we could sit. The first morning, they did not even bother to replinish the food. The second morning was better but there were kids using their hands to get the food and there were other guests reusing their plates. There needs to be signs up to state that kids should be supervised and to get a clean plate with each trip to the buffet.
I did talk to the young man at the front desk. He was very understanding and apologetic. They ended up taking the breakfast off of our bill and refunded us one night's Priority Club points.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whiteowl Comfortable and easy access getaway
Staff and accommodations were very good. Property was clean and over all very pleasing. Buffet breakfast was fresh, cook and wait staff was great; probably the best I've seen at this class of hotels.
During our first night it was real busy and a youth group was there making pool overcrowded and noisy (for me) but they seemed to be having lots of fun.
I'd stay again and recommend to anyone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by hkwhite Poor Customer Service
On arrival on 3/18/13, after receiving my room key the front desk associate stated that she forgot to upgrade me to a suite -- would I be interested in an upgrade. I replied no because there was a considerable line behind me waiting to check in, and I did not want to hold everyone up. Her inattention to detail was disappointing. As a femaile that travels quite a bit for work, I always try to find a hotel that has a bar/restaurant so I do not have to travel at night alone. Due to this, I usually choose Holiday Inn because it meets my needs. My experience at the bar was as equally disappointing as my check in. The bartender could really use a brush on customer service. She seemed very disinterested in being there. I had to ask for a beverage and a menu. She never offered another beverage I had to request one. I have stayed at your other property on Highwoods Blvd. in Raleigh. The front desk staff there is outstanding as well as Davis at the bar. Perhaps some cross training could help out the Cary staff. I was to stay 2 nights, but I checked out early to the experience. When I checked out on 3/19/13, the front desk associate was very pleasant about checking me out a day early.

My family travels alot and this hotel is our favorite. The entire team of staff is great. From the minute you book your reservation until you leave. Everyone is friendly, pleasant, helpful and to be honest, just a great group of people to be around. The staff is like extended family.
They have been very personal with us. The rooms have always been clean, and comfortable. The breakfast is AMAZING...not some rinky dink "continental" breakfast where you have a bagel and a orange. They have an entire hot buffet with a huge variety for everyone. which is perfect for my family who always has to eat and run. The location to our venue is perfect and there are plenty of places to go eat, shop, kill time right around the hotel. Every time we come to Cary, we stay here. We love it!

Whenever we have business, appts, or activities in the Raleigh area we always stay here. We are Priority Club Platinum members and are always recognized for that and our room has been upgraded to a suite everytime. The staff are very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast is a great value (kids are free) and the breakfast staff are beyond helpful and friendly! The pool is a good size and was warm and the hot tub was super hot and relaxing. Everything was clean and in working order. We have never had an issue and will continue to keep coming back.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ErikW Not very friendly front desk staff
While this is a fairly new property located among several other hotel chains in this area of Cary , the friendliness of the front desk staff leaves a lot to be desired. Bar staff and Restaurant staff were considerably more personable. As a Platinum member I have stayed at numerous properties from large cities to small and this probably has been the least costumer friendly . While I don't expect open arms, I do expect a positive response when inquiring on issues. As noted, the property is fairly new but the Air Conditioning unit in the room is filled with dust and leaves plus housekeeping is average at best. One plus this property did have has a Business Center with two computers so one could handle issues without having to wait for someone to free up a computer.
