I enjoyed my nice quiet stay. It was a gift so definitely an added value. Clean, artfully decorated, more than continental breakfast! It was a bit secluded with no restaurants close by.

Bed has shown some serious wear - on one side it was like sleeping in a hole. Had to sleep on the other side of the king bed. Reported it after the first night and "something would be done" but nothing was. Also reported a drip on the bathroom shelving coming from upstairs. Presumed it was due to room above me with a leak of some kind. Not sure what they did (if anything) but there was not drip noises the second night. Breakfast was excellent as usual. Staff very friendly and showed concern.

We have stayed here a few times while visiting at NC State. Service, breakfast, and rooms are great. Location is ideal - right off highway, but close to university.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by piggy Great Location to NCSU
Recently discovered Holiday Inn Express and it's a great location if you have a student at NCSU! Nice, clean rooms and friendly staff. Indoor pool is a plus for this time of the year and the breakfast is great. Only issue I had was we had a King Suite and there were no sheets in the room for the pull-out sofa - I had booked the King Suite because I needed the extra bed and no double bed rooms were available. Quick trip to the front desk and sheets in hand!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doris751 Parents weekend at NCSU
We stayed here during NCSU parent weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff was friendly, helpful, and approachable. The indoor pool and hot tub was relaxing. The pool area was very clean. The complimentary breakfast has a good variety of different foods. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We would definately recommend this hotel and will stay there again in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trainee Excellent value!
I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on Thistledown Drive in Raleigh. I found that it far exceeded my expectations. The room was beautiful, the location was very convenient to my training class at NCSU and the staff was more than welcoming. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lvleteor Excellent Service & Pleasant Stay
The amenities are great! Pool, jacuzzi, workout facility, nice breakfast bar, onsite laundry. For being a hotel just off the highway I was delighted and will be a repeat customer. My only complaint is the windows are only able to slide open about 3 inches due to a window block. It would be nice to open the windows fully as the weather in October was beautiful and who doesn't like fresh air? Also the safe was locked/inoperable, however if I needed I know staff would have reset it upon request. Overall a wonderful experience!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by roland65 Great price and location
this hotel was located cntrally between the areas that we were visiting. the rooms were very spacious and comfortable. the only downside was we left the hotel room around 10am and when we got back around 5pm, the room had not been serviced. the front desk told us that we must have had the do not disturb sign on the door, which i know it wasn't, and the room attendant was on our floor when we left. the front desk told us we could come down and get clean towels, which was okay , but it would have been nice to come back to a clean room. I didn't make too much of a fuss because we weren't in the room a lot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Day1 The hotel is fabulous...the staff is excellent!
The hotel is new and kept in perfect condition. They were booked the night of my stay but you couldn't tell it except by the cars in the parking lot. The staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. The breakfast staff had to be harried ...but they didn't show it. Excellent staff...beautiful hotel.

I found this property quite by accident when attending a function on the NCSU campus. I wanted a location close to the event venue and found the Holiday Inn Express SW Raleigh, on Thistledown Dr. Located directly off the Interstate, I was concerned that the noise would be a "deal breaker" but you feel as if you are far away from the hustle and bustle. Quiet, clean and comfortable this location is easily accessible and just right for any traveler!

Great Location for NC State Fair. Very late night staff could have been more helpful, but daytime and afternoon staff was great. Also, we found fresh fruit missing from breakfast buffet, as we stay at other holiday inn expresses and they have fresh cut up fruit during the week, but not on weekends. I wish that there had been some, but will know to pick up my own if we stay again..
I know that it is a no smoking facility, which is wonderful, but why do people have to smoke right outside entrance. If possible, kindly see if they can smoke over where the bench is across from the entrance. It is extremely difficult for someone with respiratory issues. Hope this helps.. Thank you.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CHTV Breakfast can improve
Overall my stay was very good.
The breakfast area was really small and not able to handle all the guests. Which as well has problems to provide the right choices.
People were sent to meeting rooms to have breakfast, not comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mustangsuzie64 Lovely setting near freeway
We were looking for a place to stay that wasn't too far from the airport but not as expensive as those closer and this hotel fit the bill. We were pleasantly surprised at the lovely landscaping and location. We felt completely safe and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again as we travel to NC fairly frequently. The staff was friendly and the hotel was very clean. Would definitely recommend.
