for an overnight stay while traveling. This was our second stay here at this location. The hotel staff were friendly. However, someone should have hung an out of order sign on the elevator which was out for most of the evening. Using the stairway was actually good exercise so I'm not really complaining. We will definitely stay again during our...

We checked in efficiently and went directly to dinner. Retuned to find a nice room in a hotel that appeared to be a refurbishment of a room in an older hotel. WiFi worked great as did flat screen with ample channel offering. Closet was doorless and bathroom had no exhaust fan. The one elevator was very slow and breakfast was...

We needed a hotel that accepted our small dog and we found an excellent one in this location. We asked for a first floor room to make it easier to take our dog out and the hotel complied. Room was very comfortable and clean. Wonderful free breakfast bar in the morning. Would definitely come back here

Unsure where to stop for the night and this filled the bill. East on and off the highway. Clean room and very nice breakfast. Staff was helpful and pleasant. What more could you ask for for an overnight stay in an unknown area?

We stayed at this hotel while visiting family in the area. The hotel was nice enough, very close to interstate. Most of the staff members we encountered were very nice and helpful. The room was adequately sized, however not as clean as I would like. It wasn't horrible; but the housekeepers could stand to put in a bit more effort....

I booked two rooms for family that was coming into North Carolina for a wedding. The front desk staff was always very friendly, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. We had a few issues with demagnetization of room keys, but it was promptly taken care of. The free breakfast in the morning was convenient and delicious. After the wedding,...

This hotel was close to the office I was in town to visit and that was the best part about the property for me. The staff is not overly accommodating but, do get the job done. I did like the fact that the front desk was right inside the door - that isn't always the case and can be confusing....
