Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IMresdoc Friendly staff and comfortable
My stay at the Holiday Inn was excellent with extremely friendly staff members. Very comfortable bed, great breakfast and nice facliities/room. Able to wash/dry clothes which assisted me greatly since I was doing much travel. I only have good things to say, however, there is no thing that I did not like: Since they needed to clean carpets (which in itself was not a problem, and they even lefet a msg in the room stating that the carpets may be slightly damp due to cleaning them)...... the carpet cleaners ended up going into my room when I was in the fitness room for an hour - this was wehn I had the "do not disturb" sign on my door. You would think that they would be consider enough to absolutely not disturb a guest if the sign was hanging on the door, OR only if there was an emergency. The carpet cleaners just wanted to get their work done regardless. I did not appreciate this. Perhaps if staff of hotel knew this then this would not have happened. And, as said, not really a bid deal, but it's just the concept.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mary84 Good location, quiet but central, could use better beds
Really friendly staff, nice location close to downtown and off the highway, but quiet. Beds could use an upgrade. Felt like it had a waterproof liner on it that rustled all night.

We stay here often as my father has frequent appts at Bowman Gray Hospital. Staff has always been supper nice and accomodating. This a very busy location. They have an outstanding breafast. We have left items behind and when called housekeeping has found them. They keep items til our next appt. If there is anything negative to say is hallways and rooms smell musty. Otherwise very enjoyable stay. Close to lots of restaurants, shopping, and attractions.

Overall a decent place. Building is a bit older and not as nice as I would expect from a Holiday Inn. Was disappointed in the quality of the breakfast food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wellsatisfied Great.
This was an excellent value and well located for our purposes. There was an unexplained wet spot on the carpet in front of the bathroom door one evening, and another hook in the bathroom would have been nice.
The ironing board, iron, and hair dryer were excellent to have, as well as the frig and microwave and coffee pot. Four pillows with two soft and two firm on each bed was outstanding. The labeling on the pillow case was a GREAT help.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Travelinbri Smelly lobby
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The lobby and hallways are really my only complaint. Very unpleasant odor throughout. The room remained odor free. As Holiday Inn Expresses go, I've absolutely stayed in nicer ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dee227 Very accommodating
Management was very accommodating when I found myself needing to request an extra night which was during a very busy time of the week. Very efficient and accommodating. Also, we loved the food court that was just next door. Thank you for a relaxing week!

Pleasant, comfortable, renovated sitting/ tv /breakfast area and above average breakfast.
Building 'bones' are leftover from older decade. Room
air conditioning did not keep up in 75 degree (high) weather. Room was humid and always smelled musty.
Internet service was fine.

This was a quiet getaway at this Holiday Inn Express. Even though I was in a nonsmoking room, there was a scent of smoke coming from a neighboring room. The amenities were good nonetheless.

I appreciated all the help I received from the staff. Everything was just what I'd hoped I'd find and easy to traverse to in and out. Thank you for your good service.

This hotel was very convenient for our needs. The pillows were not as comfortable as other hotels but the other amenities were great. Breakfast was wonderful! We will definitely be back there when we travel to Winston-Salem again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Doyouwantthisreview Comfortable, but...
Upon arrival, after check in, we were sent to the back of the building elevator because it was closer to our room. There was no luggage caddy, the workers took all the close parking spots, after going back to the front to get the caddy, I had to squeeze between laundry carts and maintenance workers. The wheels on the luggage caddy were air filled and low. It was extremely hard pushing and pulling the cart to the room. The following morning we woke to ants on the night stand. The maintenance man came with a can of spray and when he couldn't find any ants, he insinuated I was fabricating the story. I will not be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NHCrew Great staff
I brought a group of 12 to a conference, and we all stayed at this Holiday Inn the night before the event. The staff were fantastic! They helped us all get checked in, worked with me about the billing - all the rooms were in my name - and even drove us (2 trips) to the conference site in their shuttle because our van was too big for the parking deck. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous.
I had to interview someone for a position the night I was in the hotel, and they showed me a few places in the loby that were away from the traffic. The interview went well and in a comfortable setting!
Of course the rooms were clean and comfortable too. And breakfast had a great variety to choose from. I would stay here any time I'm in the area.

The room was spacious and comfortable except the air conditioner was loud and hard to hear the television. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast bar was very good with several choices. It is very convenient to Wake Forest Medical Center and there is a shuttle service from the hotel.

After a 2 am run out of a hotel that was NOT within my comfort zone and leaving my new creature friends behind, I TRULY appreciated this hotel and it's staff. The front desk associate was polite and accommodating to my 2am reservation even though he was in the middle of paperwork. My room was beautiful and welcoming, which is what I expect as a frequent work traveler. You can almost bet, for business or leisure stays, one of my first choices will be the Holiday Inn Express even if it is slightly more expensive. Thank you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed222 Wet carpet
We stay at this HI Express every 6 months as my husband has CTs at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital. Most times prior, the property was good value. This time, we arrived at 1:00 AM, the front door was locked (as it s/b for security,) but the front desk person was very slow to respond w/5 of us waiting & w/him obviously aware that we were all there. It was late, we were exhausted, & we got into our room & the AC was wide open & the room frigid. When I removed my shoes, the carpeting was wet,.not just damp. The bottom of the bathroom door was even swollen from some kind of water issue, but we were too tired, the property was full, so we went to bed and slept. I reported the issues on checkout, the young man shrugged, apologized but said apparently they were unaware. Not the reaction I expected.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BustedinWinstonSalem CAR WAS BROKEN INTO
Our car was broken into and $400 worth of items were stolen from inside our car. Our passenger side front window was smashed to pieces. We parked right next to a side entrance, our headlights were shining in someone's window, and we were under a lamp post...we were right next to the building. When we discovered this happened we went to the front desk and they said, "Oh, that's your car...ok". We filled out a sheet when we checked in with our vehicle information. They didn't even attempt to contact us and inform us of the incident, they waited for us to find out on our own. Who knows how long they knew this had happened to our car. We had to prompt them to call the police and to send housekeeping to clean up the glass. They were not very accommodating in helping us take care of the situation that happened on their property. The housekeeper then informed us that to their knowledge this is the 3rd time in 2 years that this has happened.
We had to prompt the front desk to allow us to stay 30 minutes pass the check out time to gather our items from the two rooms we had. They never once thought to take care of their guests. Once we left, the five hour drive home with our window covered in duct tape on the interstate made for a very noisy ride. So much so that our 10 week old baby cried the majority of the way home.
We were very disappointed with what we always considered an above average hotel chain. We have stayed at HIE for the past 3 years and been satisfied with our stays. But after this incident we will have a hard time considering staying at any HIE in the future because of the lack of parking lot security and manager response to this incident.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ottavio87 Room Ok but rest of the hotel was hot hot hot!
I suffer with asthma, so I was affected by the temperature in the hotel worse than others would be. However the temperature in the lobby, elevator, and hallways was unbearable for me. The room eventually cooled off to a temperature that was fine. The room was nice, but in terms of relaxing, it was very difficult. A lot of kids were running around during our first night stay in the early morning hours. I would definitely choose somewhere else to stay on my next trip to Winston-Salem.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bobberanne No exhaust fan in bathroom
Upon arrival, we immediately told the front desk that we had no exhaust fan in the bathroom. The front desk person noted it and said maintenance would take care of it while we were out for the evening. We came back and discovered we still had no fan. I asked the front desk and they said it comes on automatically when the shower is on. We literally took apart the ceiling fixture to see if there was, indeed, a fan....nothing! We took showers the next morning with fogged mirrors, vanity areas, etc. I find it hard to believe that there was a bathroom with no exhaust fan in it.

From the time we arrived until we left the staff was always helpful and had a smile on their faces. We were at the hotel on a very busy weekend and all employees were positive and were also working very hard to make sure guests had a good stay.
