This is a great little hotel in downtown Cary. You can't ask for a better location if you want to be close to downtown Cary. They have a great bar and restaurant. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the mattress was an old school spring type that is close to end of life and breakfast starts at 8am. I was traveling for business so, that is too late to take advantage of their excellent breakfast.

Prior to booking I called to inquire how to book a room using a gift card I was given for my anniversary. The lady on the phone stated that I go online and book using my credit card and when I checked in, i could at that point use the gift card. When I arrive and go to check in, I was told I could not use the gift card that they had already charged my credit card. After several minutes of discussion, not once was there an apology on the hotels behalf nor would they budge on trying to come to a decent resolve. All I got was "Well your card has already been run and we do have some newer people working here." For what this hotel is supposed to be it was very disappointing and we will not be back.

Lovely hotel with both indoor and outdoor dining. The hotel, located in "old Cary", is accessible to many restaurants from upscale Asian-Fusion to the brew pub. The hotel is perfect for small events, weddings or just a getaway. Excellent service and wonderful hospitality.

We were looking for a special, unique place to say for my birthday and found it! Great location, great dinner, nice room, good service! We would stay here again for sure. Parking is a little awkward at the church but not a big deal -- there's a bell hop if you want to drop off your luggage before parking. Construction going on downtown so the Mayton will get better with age. The dinner and service was really good -- try the tuna/avocado appetizer. The dinner space is loud but not an issue and food was great. Our room was quiet - didn't hear any neighbors - with a white noise switch as well. Could have used a couple more towels in the room. Liked the touchless keys and wide hallways with lovely artwork. Saved a bunch by staying here instead of the Umstead - more than paid for the dinner! We did the breakfast included package -- saved like $5-10. It was a delightful stay and we'd do it again!

The Mayton is a very nice boutique hotel in downtown Cary. The rooms are traditionally stylish and include the amenities you would want. Mini fridge, refrigerator, Keurig, safe, and nice oversized bah towels. The staff were amazing, especially Emily at the front desk and the restaurant hostess whose name I did not get. I highly recommend the Mayton

The entire staff was very professional and accommodating. They understand the meaning of first class service. It was obvious that the staff was empowered. I felt welcomed and appreciated. They “Get it”

My family and I just spent six nights at The Mayton. The hotel, the room, the staff, the restaurant and the location are perfect. Cary is a beautiful town and the hotel is walking distance to some great restaurants and shops. It was a perfect getaway.
