Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NCSU Mom 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!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GM1234 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!

Only problem was air conditioning very cold. The breakfast was excellent except the tableware(spoon and fork)was very flimsy)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GiGiM 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2014CollegeDad 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LHall 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).

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.
