We are traveling entertainers so we stay in a lot of hotels, often with a late check in and upon arrival the staff here were extremely helpful, courteous and professional. There was plenty of free parking and the property was right off the highway. The rooms were very clean and modern with super comfortable beds and fast wifi! I'd highly...

Clean hotel. Nice enough staff. Typical breakfast for HI&S. Call before you book to make sure the elevator is working. As of this post (and much earlier posts), .Still an issue unless you don't mind trekking up a hot stairwell with luggage etc in tow.! I myself have an aversion to such things. I think they must be trying to...

Stayed from the 19th to the 20th of August, 2016. Fast check-in, comfy beds, good breakfast. Also, the location is pretty good as it is only half an hour from the three cities of the triangle while keeping a location in the growing northern suburb of Wake Forest. We had a larger family, so we needed a room with 3...

Any one giving this place less than five stars is out of their minds. Truly an amazing hotel. Everything I need inside a hotel room, great a/c, wonderful shower, refrigerator, microwave, nice tv, and an oh so comfortable bed. I arrived really late and even the all night check in guy was super friendly and had my reservation ready, which...

Holiday Inn Raleigh / Wake Forest- Property is super clean and modern. The shower pressure worked well. And although the hotel is 14 years old it's maintained incredibly well. Great staff and awesome breakfast. Love the location especially-It's in a very safe area and near tons of shops and entertainment venues. We were within in minutes of Go Ape Zip...

The facility was clean and the staff was very nice. However, my traveling companion and I booked our room over 2 months prior to our visit. We requested 2 beds. When we arrived and went to our room, there was only 1 bed. I went to the desk and was told a room with 2 beds was not available because...

Convenient to Raleigh. 15 minutes to the center of the city and close to the belt ways. Close to stores and restaurants. Very friendly staff. Breakfast is good. Fitness center could use more equipment.

This is a very good hotel to choose if you are staying in this area. The breakfast was hot and very good each morning. The staff went out of their way to accommodate any request. There are quite a few restaurants to choose from that are close and a mall that isn't to far away either.
