Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 1234567Guest Too Loud - Party going on...
I booked this hotel for my mother-in-law. She just wanted some time away to relax and have some quiet time. The overall of the hotel was good. I didn't like the fact that it was loud. Unfortunately, she did not get peace and quiet. There was a party downstairs in the lobby Saturday and the people next door was loud up until 3-4am in morning. Her room was clean, dark in corners, but the breakfast was good. She like to book hotel rooms every other month just to relax. Unfortunately, I will not be booking here again for her.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marie1215 Beaufiful hotel. Close to downtown at 1/3 the price.
Planning a trip for a show at the RedHat Ampitheatre, I tried to book a hotel (online) close to the venue and I found $300 price tags!? (For Raleigh? Forget it!) So I took a chance and booked this place, and I'm so glad I did. If you need to be near downtown, take the 5 minute drive down the road and stay here instead!
This hotel is gorgeous, clean, modern and obviously kept-up. It also surprised me with an open pool and sauna (mid-September# and an AWESOME $5. breakfast buffet with...everything! Omelets, fruit bar, scrambled w/ veggies, et. al....not just some continental toast & tea. #Front desk gave me the breakfast option at check in - it's not obvious on the website. If they offer - take it! If they forget, be sure to mention it!) Good staff and a great stay. This will be my go-to place in Raleigh.

Bed & Pillows - excellent
Older hotel but redone nicely. Some things you cannot change.
Breakfast excellent, especially if you purchase it the day before for $5 per person.
Staff - friendly & responsive
For the price it is a great hotel. Especially the bed & pillows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marionb1 Great place to stay for a Concert and relaxation
From the moment we walked in the front door of this hotel we felt welcome. All of the staff made us feel right at home. The hotel is beautiful with art on the walls in the halls and in the rooms. Rooms looked to have just been redone with new everything. This will be our place to stay when visiting Raleigh and for concerts at the Walnut Creek Pavilion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa82 Loved the staff at Holiday Inn Raleigh North
I was in Raleigh visiting my brother at Wake Medical Center. It had been an exhausting two days and I needed a place to rest and get away from the hospital. I checked in late and the staff was extremely kind and understanding. What a blessing!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maxine65 Beautiful room and good breakfast
I have never stayed at a Holiday Inn. It was an excellent experience. There was a wedding held there and everything was great. I would recommend the Holiday Inn. We also stayed one night at the Holiday Inn in Wilmington, NC and received the same excellent service.

Stay here a lot so it's always like visiting Cheer's - everyone knows my name... The recent rennovation is nice. Rooms are clean and updated. Wifi service is fast enough. Restuarant is good, especially the breakfast - worth the $5! (and just accross the parking lot you can have Dunkin' coffee and Baskin's ice cream). Staff is well trained, friendly, and helpful. I don't even try to find another location to stay in Raleigh because this one is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Good place to stay.
I have stayed several times at this hotel. All is very good, don't really like the new style of pillows that hotels are going to. Really small just about like a throw pillow. Other than that, room was great.
Thanks for another good nights rest!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ToddnGA Nice visit
The staff is always top notch and a pleasure when I check in. I stay for work but any other visitors may find the hotel in a very business oriented area.
I have no complaints but I have a comment. There is a tip jar prominently placed in the buffet area on the "hostess" desk - which there is a 50/50 chance someone will be there at the time of your breakfast entry. I can understand if the hostess (any of the breakfast staff) did anything while they are there, like seat you or get you coffee - but nothing. When I go to McDonald's, I am greeted and even personally handed my meal in at the drive through. I have never given a tip there so why is a jar at the hostess stand.
*** on another note. The hostess of that day was having a conversation with a guest halfway back the dining area while seated on her stool. As a guest, most of us love a quick friendly chat. I just did't like the loud "across the room" banter. The weather forecast was blocked out and well as other headline news. Just an FYI for then.

Have stayed several times at this hotel, however, first time checking in on Sunday evening. Really quiet! The staff and room were great! Really many breakfast choices on the buffet. Can also get your eggs cooked to order! Will definitely stay here again!

Everyone was very helpful. As a platinum member I was greeted with that information at check in. For breakfast, the cook fixed a special order of grits that I requested. My waitress, Lin, was amazing as well

I stay at this property not only for business but for pleasure as well. You can't beat the price for the room with the recent upgrades and a wonderful full breakfast for a minimal price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Taylor2013 Great Hotel/Insufficient Staff
This is a very nice hotel and the food was very good. If I had to say anything at all it would be insufficient staff. We were there during college graduation weekend where several colleges in the area had ceremonies. This means that there were a lot of guests checking into the hotel. The bar/restaurant had 1 person working and she was trying to cover the bar and serving guests in the restaurant at the same time. Also, our room did not have enough towels so when we called down to housekeeping the person on the other end of the phone indicated she was the only person working the front desk so she was unable to deliver towels. Even with insufficient staff, the ones on duty were very nice.

EXPERIENCED EXTREME FEELING OF SAFETY. LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS APPEAR TO BE FREQUENT GUESTS OF THIS LOCATION. APPEARS TO HAVE MANY ATTRACTIVE, HARD WORKING MEN AS GUESTS (as observed by my daughter). HOUSEKEEPING STAFF VERY CAREFUL REGARDING SENSITIVE DME's (durable medical equipment) I MUST TRAVEL WITH. BREAKFAST SELECTIONS ARE EXCELLENT.

With our daughter and grandson living in Raleigh, we find ourselves visiting quite often and we always stay at this hotel. The recent rennovations have made the rooms even nicer - would be especially good for business travelers. Front Desk staff is friendly and helpful, and always try to get me rooms that fit what I need for any particular stay (i.e., sometimes we need adjoining, etc.). Breakfast is great - not a bunch of sweets and waffles - full breakfast with bacon, sausage, hash browns, eggs any way, fresh fruit - definitely worth the $$$. Off Capital Blvd, but backs up to a quiet residential neighborhood and it's convenient to shopping and restaurants.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Orkinman Excellent customer service at check in and in the restaurant.
I would highly reccommend this Holiday Inn in Raleigh because of the exceptional customer service. My experience at the front desk with Erin was outstanding. She made sure that I had everything that I needed and more. When I went into the restaurant the gentlemen there Davis was attending to my every need. The rooms have been redone and are a great value. I will definitely go back.

I had the pleasure of being checked in by Randy. I couldn't have asked for a better person to assist me. My room was not what I had booked and he changed it right away for me. Davis the person who would deliver my room service was great as well. They treated me with the up most respect.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Libby60 Comfortable bed
Front desk was very friendly. Room was clean and bed very comfortable. I loved that there were different firmness of pillows available. Bathroom lacks much counter space. Even though there is a space for a fridge, there was none and no microwave. However someone in our party said the sixth floor all had fridges. Heater/air conditioner unit was a bit noisy. The first room I was in the toilet leaked causing it to run every 5 minutes. The front desk gladly moved me to another room. Food was good but breakfast staff was aloof, hard to get my "eggs to order".

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by wlb77 Not a good experience
My wife and I had no problems with the room. It was comfortable and well appointed with the exception of the bathroom. It was very small with almost no counter top and no towel racks. We did experience some major problems-
1. Neither elevator was working for approximately 15 minutres. We walked from the 5th floor to the 3rd floor where we found a worker who called the desk. The desk attendant came up to the 3rd floor with the elevator. We learned that a worker was holding the other elevator on the 6th floor.
2. We went to the restaurant area for dinner around 8:00 PM. The waitress/bartender and 3 gentlemen were sitting at the bar watching a movie on the large screen containing vulgar language and semi-nudity. The sound volume was very high to the point that it was extremely distracting. My wife and I are not prudes.We asked the waitress to reduce the volume and she complied. The ambience had, by then, deteriorated.
3. Noise on the 5th floor during the night was disturbing. It was intermittent therefor we did not notify the front desk.
The man at he front desk was courteous and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by autrycs Loved the upgrade
The upgrade was much needed and it looked great and so much more relaxing in appeal. I was disappointed that the free breakfast buffet was done away with, as this hotel was the reason I had always chosen it over the one 4 miles down the road. Customer service was really great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AmyC Should have checked to see if they had mini-fridges and microwaves
Hotel was clean, the staff were great. Bed was comfortable and I slept great. I just wished I had checked to see if they had mini-fridges/microwaves in the rooms. Most hotels I stay at have those and complimentary breakfast. I don't eat a lot and it's just not worth the money to buy a meal at the hotel. I usually grab something from a local grocery store and stick it in the fridge to eat later.
I'll stay there again as their is a Subway really close by!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by missy52 Nicer than expected for the price.
This room with one King bed was surprisingly nice looking and well furnished. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The TV and remote worked! The towels were plush.There was a nice assortment of Bath & Body Works products.
What I also liked was the option to purchase, for a minimal charge, breakfast the next morning. Buffet offered all the choices you would expect and "made your way" eggs.
My only complaint was the sound of the room heater going on/off all night, but that is consistant with most hotel/motel rooms anywhere.
