Location is a bit off the beaten path ... good for peace and quiet. Still, location allows easy access to locations in and around area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by zipper773 so-so stay, but best option available
This holiday Inn Express was an oasis compared to other places we looked at in the area. However it was an oasis with a mirage for a pool (was 'broken' the entire time we were there) and a fitness center (3 pieces of outdated equipment jammed into a closet). The rooms were clean (though the word 'HELP' was written on our bathroom mirror when it fogged) and the breakfast was rather complete. The AC worked so-so. There are NO signs on the outside of the building... but luckily it's the only property on the street so easy to find.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ohm14 dissappointed
Drove from east coast and stretched the driving time to go to this facility because we had stayed there before at least 3-4 times. When checking in told they had a king bed but rates were raised for the weekend. We paid the most here (over $140) than we had paid the whole trip including being moved from a king to king suite due to problems in the room. We took the rate only because it was late, tho I wish we had driven on to your Mebane location. Asked for non-smoking which we apparently got but the hallway smelled horribly of smokers. Fortunately our room did not but the air was not on and it was extremely musty and humid. Turning the air on helped some but not until well into the night. We found the refrigerator unplugged and had to pull it out of cabinet to be able to plug it in. Again it reached cool enough temperatures but not until well into the night. We left our items in the ice chest and added more ice. When I complained to desk clerk in AM I got sorry but no offer to reduce rate and got " well 3/4 visits were good so that's not so bad". I felt the bathroom and carpeting were "old, outdated and not too clean". I seriously doubt I will revisit unless forced to. I felt as a Rewards Club member I was treated like all the rest.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick1958 Bed problem fixed, great service
we stayed here (1/2 hour west of RDU) since we were traveling west the following day, and it was $20 cheaper than the other area HIEs. Our plane was delayed so we arrived after 3am instead of 2am as I had anticipated. I did call to advise of the late arrival and again about the delay. No problems with either, and the desk manager was there when we arrived and greeted us warmly.
We had two queen beds, but found that one was 'defective', seemed to be worn out or broken: it sagged and 'creaked' when we lay on it. Since it was 3:30am we decided to address it in the morning. The same desk manager was there when we came down. He apologized and offered to move us, but as we were traveling 2 hours away and then back that evening, did not want to spend the time/effort to move. He promised to have the staff fix the bed while we were gone.
Promise fulfilled, bed was as comfortable as the other one when we came back. The following morning he explained that the foundation was cracked ...
EXCELLENT service IMO and while the hotel was obviously a bit older/refurbished, it seemed very clean/well done and maintained. I may not be the pickiest traveler in the world, however. The staff was no less than excellent in all our interactions, being very friendly and attentive, and responsive to our needs.

Due to am emergency, I found myself passing through Durham and needing a room at the last moment. Everyone here were very friendly and accommodating.
The room was clean and had everything I needed to get a good, comfortable night's sleep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Old Clammer Lucky Find After a Long Day
After a motel did not honor our online reservation we felt desperate to find lodging for ourselves and two pets. Late in the day with no place to stay can be unnerving, however, the Holiday Inn Express had room for all of us and the result was a comfortable night and good allround experience. We definitely will stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unappriciated Thank you Meena
It was crazy morning with conference calls and reports to finish...
Needles to say i didn't make it down in time for breakfast and as I was getting my coffee and listening to my stomach growl I was approached by Meena in the breakfast area, she asked if she could get me something to eat, she insisted that it would not be a problem. I didn't want to put her out and I refused, even though I really was really craving something to carry me over. Well she insisted and I relented.
This is the kind of gesture that will bring me back to this hotel. A friendly staff who seems to have a genuine concern for their customers.
The hotel was clean and I had a wonderful business stay.
Thank you again Meena!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bauldwin Good Place to stay.
All though it was a bit far out for us on this trip, the staff was great. The only issues that I had were the accessibility in the bathroom of his bedroom, he is in a wheelchair and the stool was not as accessible due to the location of the sink. Also, the accessible rooms were on the 1st floor where smoking was allowed. This was an issue for me due to my asthma.But overall I was pleased with the help the staff gave us.

We were excited to see that our second visit to this hotel was just as enjoyable as our first. The room was cleaned quickly and thoroughly each day and the outside areas were clean also. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will be sure to recommend it anyone who is visiting that area.

We have stayed at this hotel many, many times. We travel to Hillsborough Nc for business a lot. My company always stays here, sometimes for weeks at a time. The staff is great and the rooms are always clean. I dropped my wallet once while entering through the pool entrance and one of the cleaning ladies had returned it to the clerk at front desk before I even knew I had dropped it. Very trustworthy people here and I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Hillsborough. It is a very nice town and a lot of nice restaurants and hiking trails around this area as well.

I normally trust the Holiday Inn Express but this one felt like a common hotel. The room I stayed in had a strong odor of smoke and it was a non smoking room. The bed was very bouncy and I felt the springs from the low quality mattress. The breakfast was ok and the front desk clerk was probably the best. I did not like the hotel and it smelled like smoke throughout. I will probably drive a bit further north to get a better room or stay at a rest stop because this hotel left a bad impression on me. I wish the hotel would upgrade its furniture and desmoke many of the rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susan1313 My Favorite Hotel
I travel a lot in business and have seen my share of hotels. I have never had a single bad experience at this hotel and have stayed here probably at least 8 weeks total each year, year in and year out.
The staff is great and always makes me feel like part of the family. The hotel owners have been present every visit and always want my feedback on my stay with them. They are always attentive to my needs and looking for ways to improve. I have never witnessed anything but the highest level of service for their guests. I love the location because it is in between I-40 and I-85, so getting on either is simple, easy, and quick. It sits off the road on a hill which provides an, almost "out in the country" feel which also makes it very quiet.....none of the high traffic noise one experiences in most hotels located in proximity to cities or interstates. One does not have to fight traffic either as the location is directly off the interstate. To me, it's the best all the way around and I stay here every time business brings me to this area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Never Going Back Horrendous Experience
Normally I would not take the time to do a review, but our visit was so horrifying that I want others to know. We have stayed at this property for 15 years. While it would not be our first choice, it is the only hotel in town. We have been disappointed in the past, but not so much that we haven't returned. We will not return to this hotel in the future.
We had gone out for breakfast and returned to the room to change clothes and pick up a few things. My husband was in the restroom when the hotel room door opened and the person opened the CLOSED bathroom door. My husband yelled and the person left. I opened the hotel room door and the maintenance man apologized and said he needed to look at the toilet.
On our way out, I stopped by the front desk and the man was there. I suggested to him that he knock on the door before he opens it in the future. He told me that I should have had the door locked while in the room. I asked him if he was blaming me for his mistake. He just repeated that I should have locked the door. The desk clerk was standing right there and NEVER said a word.
The toilet was NEVER fixed and was a real problem, but we were afraid to ask to have it fixed.

Don't forget to remove your donot Disturb sign, on the door while you're out for the day. Even though, I told the house keeper every day upon leaving my room that it is okay to clean I'll be out for the day, She always told me no problem and when we returned my room was cleaned. My last day I ask for the room to be cleaned I was told okay
and apparently I forgot to remove their donot disturb sign from the door. And the house keeper did not clean becaues it is against the law to enter or Knock for service. Even though we told her directly it was okay to clean.
