Stayed a week. Was able to get some well needed rest. Relaxed in the spa and took a swim in the indoor pool. The location is not idea unless you need to be near NC State University which is right around the corner. Didn't appreciate my priority rewards status not being recognized other than that great stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JayfDizzle Nice stopover near NC State/RDU
This hotel is new and very clean. The staff were very friendly and the linens/towels were very nice. The breakfast we good- with some nice healthy options like yogurt and fruit. We only stayed one night here as a stopover while traveling through, but everything was great- the place seems very well run.

several rooms on our floor were having a party. they were very rude and confrontational. We moved to another floor at 11.00 pm when we returned to check out at 4:00 am the party was still going. I appreciated the desk clerk allowing us to use another room to get some sleep.

Bill is the manager extraordinaire! He greets all customers in a very friendly manner and checks on anyone sitting in the lobby to make sure they are comfortable. He is not the only friendly face at HIX on Thistledown. All the staff are friendly - from the maintenance personnel to the maids to the front desk. A wonderful place to stay!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CeeCee985 The good, the bad, and the ugly
It was our annual trip to Raleigh and the hotel we normally stay wasn't available. My job offered a discount at The Holiday Inn Express and we decided to go with them. The location is off of the expressway and the only thing within walking distance was a gas station.
THE GOOD: comfortable beds, microwave and small frig, pillow choice, breakfast, and staff.
THE BAD: a/c unit, no bathroom vent,
THE UGLY: the stained sofa bed *
I will say the hotel was clean and I would stay again but will check certain things before accepting a room.
* the staff removed the mattress and replaced it with a roll away and we were charged full price

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Medick54 Clean, comfortable, great amenities, & great service
It was a very pleasant stayed in this Inn. It was just the right place , the right service,& amenities we need. It has all everything we need for few days to stayed in. The staffs are friendly and caring. Bill from front desk service has kindly enough to accommodate our needs at that time of checked in. Also, the pillows are too soft, I think. Convenient to where we were for a very special event.
They know how to provide entertainment such as food for the guests to feel welcome. Over all our stay with Holiday Inn Express is very exceptional compared to our previous stays in one of the motels that we stayed in Raleigh. We would like to come back if we need to stay in this express Inn again in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Traveller1325 Excellence in staffing
The services provided by a member of your staff was absolutely outstanding. The night receptionist (or manager, I'm not sure what her exact title is), Sherrie was a polite, engaging young lady that went to great lengths to insure her guests were well taken care of. I'm not just speaking of my own experience, I witnessed Sherrie consistently and positively represent your hotel with your customers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe5729 Excellent Property!
I stay at this hotel regularly. It is my first choice when visiting NC State, which I do for business often.
I am a lightweight, move fast, professional traveler. In and out quickly, keeping the Mickey Mouse to a minimum.
The hotel is in a very un-congested area with easy university access, and access to the expressway from the airport.
They will check you in and out of this hotel lightning quick, and are very efficient and pleasant about it.
Rooms are very clean and user friendly. Plugs to recharge stuff everywhere.
Tuesday night receptions are fun, free drinks (bottled beer, too) and hot food. I've had the Mexican and Italian. Breakfast is hot, and I always grab something, which is more than I can say for most hotels.
I pound the wifi nightly, and it always works, and works well.
I always return to this hotel when I am in Raleigh, and always look forward to it. As a hard core traveller, this is the best compliment you can bestow upon any hotel.

This is probably our 10th night at this hotel in the past year and it continues to be our favorite and has the best value. When visiting our daughter at NC State, we stay here. The location is very close to State and easily accessible. The facilities are always clean and the staff always courteous.

Hotel met our needs for this trip. The location is very accessible to NC State. The wind was terrible causing the flags outside our room to flap very loudly. We had to the fan on nonstop to overcome the noise outside our room.
Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom had no fan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Annapolis Shelter from the storm!
We were visiting relatives in Georgia and were due to return to Maryland the next day. We knew a winter storm was due to blow through the NC and North area the next day. We made a reservation just in case. We were very, very glad we did.
We hit icy roads and falling sleet very close to Raleigh. We had to stop and clean ice off the wipers and there were many nervous moments but we made the hotel just in time. The news was advising motorists to stay off the road. We ordered dinner from a nearby Italian carryout and enjoyed it and the room. The room was certainly well furnished and comfortable. I am short and the bed was a climb! I felt like a princess!
The heater blew alternative cold and warm air all night long. There was no place to adjust the heat and we were thus stuck with whatever it blew into the room.
There was a phone which had the wrong phone number on it, so the restaurant originally was given the wrong room number and we had to correct it before the delivery.
We slept in the next day, because we were waiting out (hopefully) the ice melt outside. Breakfast was over and we had to settle for coffee as we left. The roads were like they'd run the Daytona 500 that morning, with wrecked and abandoned vehicles everywhere on and off the roads. We made it safely to Maryland. We are very thankful for the shelter from the storm!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NC Parent Very Clean-Kids Disappointed
Very nice stay. Room was clean. Hotel was very close to interstate and NC State. Beds were super comfortable and rooms were quite. Even with a soccer team taking up most of our floor. Booked hotel also for the indoor pool. Kids were disappointed that pool was closed. The nice lady at the check-in desk must not have been informed that the pool was closed. She mentioned the facilities and the pool hours. Donned in bathing suits we went to use the pool, but were disappointed to find that it was under repair. Need to make sure that this is communicated to all employees. Besides this issue, overall the hotel was a good choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by valern Great hotel for the money
I stayed here 5 nights in February and it was a fabulous place. In addition to all the amenities (fridge and microwave in each room, indoor pool and hot tub, hot daily breakfast), it was in a great location, close to Whole Foods so I could eat healthy meals instead of fatty restaurant food, nice scenic location, easy access to major freeways, and more. Staff were very friendly as well. I would highly recommend it.
