Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kasx Really poor quality and service
This is really two hotels sharing the same building. I bet the quiet side is fine. I did not stay on that side so my review is about the other really bad hotel.
As noted in previous reviews, one side of this hotel faces I-40 and is very noisy. I was a little worried when we got in our room but I figured the windows were appropriately sound proof. They are not. This is a major trucking route and the night sounds are really loud. If the windows had been opened, the noise levels would not have changed; it was that bad.
I went to the desk at midnight to see what could be done and the desk person did start to move me to another room. Unfortunately, the other person I was with was able to sleep (my bed was by the window) so I would have had to wake him up and then move our gear. I asked if I could just sleep in another bed but I would had had to pay for that. My favorite part was when I was told that nobody every really complains about the noise. I guess the staff are instructed to lie to the customers. I considered sleeping in the lobby but figured I would get kicked out of there as well.
When I returned at 3am (I had nothing better to do) and asked to speak to someone who could make a decision the staff person said he would not wake her up. HeThank you for taking the time to write your review following your recent stay. We take our guest comments very seriously and always strive to provide comfortable and friendly accommodations. We are truly sorry our hotel was not able to meet your expectations. Though we would prefer you had a better experience at our hotel, we would like to thank you for sharing your thoughts and we hope you give us a chance in the future to show you how great our hotel is.r precious sleep was certainly more important than anything. Apparently, in this hotel, it is perfectly appropriate to take your customers money and not even provide the basic service of a reasonably quiet room.
I wondered why I was not given the quiet room in the first place. There were certainly available rooms but realized that since I am not a member of any of the groups (platinum, gold, etc) that I am not really a worthy customer. It is perfectly fine provide nothing to people like me because, that's right, we are not as good as the club members.
It is clear there is a problem with the sound and the hotel is aware of it and they have decided to continue to take our good money, well because they can. In one of their responses below, they even suggest that you ask for the quiet rooms. That's right, because they are not going to take the responsibility to do the right thing. It's more fun and cheaper to just write a form reply that goes like this...

Look!, I wrote the reply for you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hamblen2940 Must clean rooms
Bathroom had a used towel hanging up on shower curtain. Used bar of soap on the bathroom counter next to sink and also one in the shower. It looked as if the bathroom was never even cleaned. I got the last room of the night or I would have changed rooms. New towels and soap were placed in the bathroom but it was not cleaned completely.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MIKE555555555 NOISIEST HOTEL EVER
Of the hundreds of hotels I have stayed in the Holiday Inn Express on Peter Creek Rd in Winston Salem, NC is the noisiest hotel ever. This hotel is build along side an interstate and the noise from the traffic is inescapable. There were times when the windows of our room vibrated from truck traffic. Why a hotel would be built at this location without a minimum of installing doubled glazed windows is a mystery.
To be fair, the property was clean, the staff was courtesous and the breakfast offerings were good but these are secondary to why one stays in a hotel. If you main goal is a good night's sleep I would strongly advise that you skip this location unless you bring ear plugs and Amibien with you. Unfortunely we had pre paid a three night stay there while attending a convention and our room could not be changed due to total occupancy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by k5555 Overpriced for where it was located
Although the staff was very nice, I would not stay here again. If you stay on one side of the hotel - the interstate traffic is very loud - which may explain why they had the AC on. The room was very nice and clean. Although they had a nice tv - they did not have movies that you could rent. I would not typically watch tv but there really is not much to do in that area. You are basically surrounded by highways. The other inconvenience was that you had to constantly be pulling U turns in order to get into the property. It was very expensive as well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WSSURAMS Not Valued
The check in experience was excellent, the room nice and comfortable. I was attending a VERY special event being WSSU's homecoming. When I returned Friday evening/Saturday morning, the surveillance monitored parking lot was full. I noticed there was an SUV with a trailer parked across 4-6 spaces. When I went inside to make the front desk aware, I was informed by BILLY that the guest had $25,000 worth of equipment on his trailer and the HE had instructed him to park under the cameras. I let him know that I was displeased and that the overflow in the vacant lot next door was not as safe as the parking lot. He stated that "all parking was at own risk" and that further validated my displeasure for not making the person with the oversize vehicle park there. When I woke later that morning, I noticed that only 4 cars including mine was parked in the overflow. WE could have parked in the lot with the cameras had this person not been allowed to use most of the parking for his equipment that is valued less than my vehicle. This encounter managed to lower my initial positive impression of the property. Oversized vehicles should be parked in the vacant self storage lot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WRWalsh Great location and environment
One of my favorite Holiday Inn's in N.C.
Not too big but quiet since in a not too busy area.
