Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 189 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by There is no greater place to stay in the Raleigh area This is the best hotel in the Raleigh area for staff friendliness and clean rooms. I will stay nowhere else. This hotel sets the bar for all others! August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My Stay in August My stay was kicked off with an easy check in process along with a room that was clean and air-conditioned. I happened to stay on a Tuesday night and the Manager's Dinner was excellent. I slept like a baby and had a delicious breakfast before I left for more meetings. It was a very good stay. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Close to Area I needed to be on Saturday morning Quiet rooms, We were staying at this hotel because my son was taking the State Boards on Saturday morning near by. He was able to study on Friday nite because the hotel was quiet. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service I always enjoy the hospitality at this hotel. Sherry is the one that usually checks me in and Bill is the one that kicks me out. Dang voice text. I mean Bill checks me out. You two rock ! August 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home Away From Home Love staying here. Since I am on the road so much with work, and have to be away from home, this hotel is the next best place to being home. The staff are wonderful. August 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Favorite Raleigh Hotel The Holiday Inn Express has quickly become my favorite place to stay in Raleigh. In addition to being very convenient to I-40 and the NC State area, it is clean, comfortable and has a great breakfast. I was hot & tired when checking in and the attendant at the desk was so efficient. I was in/out in under 5 minutes and on my way to my nice cool room with a comfortable bed. There was a convention going on the weekend of my stay and we had a first floor room. I was a little concerned about the noise of the rowdy people I saw elsewhere on the property coming and going. I did not hear a thing and slept very good. Highly recommend this property. July 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Feels like a "country B This hotel has the charm of a bed and breakfast, a warm and friendly staff, a new look and feel, and is located in on a quiet, secluded plot just minutes away from NC State. Every measure has been taken here to capture the friendliness and comfort of a classic Inn. You won't believe this is a Holiday Inn Express! July 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and excellent service Comfortable bed and pillows. Spacious room. Excellent service at check-in. July 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff. Very nice hotel. I stay here whenever I'm in Raleigh. Wish the internet service could be upgraded. July 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent staff and hotel visit I wish all your properties had as friendly and knowledge staff as Sherrie. She welcomed me with a smile and acknowledged all quests as they entered the lobby. She make you feel special and trust me, that is generally all we want. We want someone to not act like they care but to know it is genuine. Sherrie has all the great qualities we are missing in customer service. Loyalty, caring, friendly smile and knowing her job. I will recommend this property 150 percent. Thank you for agreat at home visit. July 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and Friendly In town for a wedding. Nice place to stay. Clean rooms and property. The breakfast was convenient. Staff was friendly. July 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy access to Interstate and NCSU. Very easy to get to and very close to NCSU. Hotel was very clean and continental breakfast was more than we expected. Biggest thing We took away from our stay was the Staff. From booking, phone conversations to meeting them in person. The people at this hotel are second to none!! Very Very pleasant, informative and willing to do whatever it takes to make your stay enjoyable. Just can't say enough about the Staff. July 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Edisto Traveler Excellent Stay! I would recommend this hotel to all my friends. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall a Very Positive Experience Will look to stay in this hotel on future trips to Raleigh, NC. Good hotel for business and for family travel. Thanks! July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Desk Staff Your General Manager was very attentive and made sure we were comfortable. He was accommodating, professional and approachable. Excellent employee. July 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean and comfortable room Our stay at your hotel was exceptional. We will definitely be coming back, as my daughter will be a student at NC State University in August. Thank you! July 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable and convenient We just needed a comfortable and convenient place to stay during NCSU Parent Orientation days, and your hotel far exceeded our expectations. The nicely appointed room was a much appreciated refuge at the end of a tiring day; the staff's friendly greeting and evening reception invitation a perfect "welcome home" to overwhelmed parents! It is always the little things that make a difference, and the folks at Holiday Inn Express surely understand that! July 7, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible breakfast service! The breakfast lady is rude and uncooperative for early eaters (those that need nee to eat prior to 6:30) even if only 15 minutes early! July 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for money very good breakfast Only problem was air conditioning very cold. The breakfast was excellent except the tableware(spoon and fork)was very flimsy) July 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stay This hotel was located in a quiet area, very easy to find and get to. The room was very comfortable, and clean. The bed was comfortable and I had a very good night sleep. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really lovely experience We had a really great experience here. The accommodations were very comfortable and everything that you would expect. What was truly exceptional is that the people were so nice and so helpful. We screwed up our key card everyday and they cheerfully fixed it for us every time. When we asked if there was a department store nearby, they were so organized that they pulled out a printed list and highlighted several stores. The list even had driving directions and mileage on it. And, when I lost the list, they cheerfully provided me with another one. I freely admit that I am a fussy customer so when I tell you the staff here are absolutely marvelous, they truly are! July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exellent service - great hotel My families experience at this hotel was great. My reservation was taken by Bill and he treated me like a friend instead of a customer. He demonstrated great customer service. We were attending NCSU student/parent orientation and upon arrival, my daughter was treated with a goodie bag. It made her smile! The room was great and comfortable. The beds afforded a very good nights sleep. I want some of those pillows! This will be our preferred hotel while visiting our child in college! We felt very safe there! The only problem I had was that the internet service was slow. June 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent staff service Over the top service and attention to detail. The staff was attentive and caring about our comfort and needs. June 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Immaculate/Quiet/Well staffed We joined our daughter for a family visit in Raleigh. She needed a pet friendly hotel. We found the grounds and hotel immaculate, friendly staff and surprisingly good breakfast with selections ranging from pancakes/scrambled eggs, greek yogarts, delicious cinnamon buns, oatmeal, juices and coffee. Would definitely return when in the area. Just know that State government discounts apply only to North Carolina employees ( not university employees). June 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Experience/Value Welcoming experience. The value for the money was great. Good/easy access to Interstate 40 and NC State University. June 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful stay This location was a delight. The staff was friendly and the room was nice. The kids loved the pool! Great place! June 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Bed and Linen 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. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed The room was very nice, the bed comfortable but the pillows were too soft for my taste. The room was very clean. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Stay - Again I have used this facility on three occasions, and plan to use it again many more times. It's just that Good! June 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Business trip Hotel management and staff extremely friendly and responsive to needs. room clean and the a/c worked great. Would definitely recommend this hotel. June 15, 2014
