Wow! What can I say? This place is chill in the best ways of the word. The lobby and the staff are equally welcoming. The staff were both friendly and helpful without ever being "In your face." The lobby itself, as well as the breakfast area, were ideal and cozy. And the breakfast was especially good. The rooms were fantastic....

What a relaxing stay at the Holiday Inn Express Raleigh North property. Check-in/out was seamless! Staff was very friendly and answered any question I had.

Rooms were comfortable and the staff was very nice and accommodating. Nothing out of the ordinary,but definitely no real complaints either. Room has a decent sized fridge, sitting area and comfy bed. Full disclosure, I usually stay in nicer places, but was here on business, so it was very good for that!

I was traveling on a business trip through NC, I loved the super clean and nice room I got. The hotel had a big group of youth teams but I was still able to enjoy a very quiet trip, helping me to work. The staff here was super friendly. 5 star service, awesome breakfast with a great location!
