Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PlethoDonJuan Almost my second home
I've been coming to this part of North Carolina for over a year now for regular meetings in the area. I think I've stayed here at least 10 times and will continue to use HIX Hillsborough for the foreseeable future. Each time I am greeted promptly and in my room within moments. The hotel itself is bit out of the way which is great as it affords me rapid access out of the RDU area by avoiding much of the traffic to the east. I also have great access to my friends in Carborro and Mebane as well. The owners are very kind and very attentive to anyone's needs especially in the mornings. The fitness room is tiny but usually functional as I only use the treadmill after driving several hours. Rooms are very clean and mostly quiet considering the proximity to I-85. Sometimes I find a fixture or two that could be repaired better and if I have one complaint it is the curved shower rods. They usually are sagging which creates some problems with the curtain preventing water on the floor (this is general on the fixture and not a reflection on the hotel per se.). I left a book there several weeks ago and when I returned this week it was waiting for me as promised. Highly recommend this HIX.

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it was an oasis with a mirage for a pool (was 'broken' the entire time we were there) and a fitness center (3 pieces of outdated equipment jammed into a closet).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.
