This is the worst US hotel I have ever stayed in. Sure, I have stayed in worse in Central America, but this is NOT what I expected in the research triangle! Checked in to a room with no soap, no clothes hanger, and a musty smell. Checked in on Friday and out on Monday and no housekeeping staff ever came...

This hotel is a cheap place to stay, however, you get what you pay for. They charge monthly rates so there are a lot of people there that live there, and they are loud. They hang out on the catwalks drinking, playing music, and talking very late. There were kids outside running up and down the catwalk until 11:00 at...

The staff was very professional and location is prefect. I come in and out of town for work and I always use Crossland. The rate pretty much stays the same so I don't have to worry abt any unexpected fees. Great for passing through travelers like my self!

Room was small, clean, comfortable, & secure, but not always quiet. It had micro & small fridge, & free wi-fi was strong. Motel is located conveniently. I was on second floor. Would've liked top floor, but that's for smokers. Person above me made loud strange thumping noises. Fortunately, that was not constant, but that person should've been on the bottom...

The only two ways that I can imagine anyone giving this hotel a decent review: 1) they paid someone to give the reviews. 2) the pimps and prostitutes are giving the reviews. Besides the obvious discomfort of staying in a hotel with an hourly turnaround of "clients", the lack of towels and pillows was a bit disappointing. The nasty reddish...

This hotel is dirty, room 113 has a smoky smell. So as I turn on the light I had to kill a flying bug. Very little toilet paper on the roll at check in. The huge block of ice in the freezer can't get drinks in refrigerator. The funiture is old, out dated and damaged.

I've stayed here for a few months now. .. Tameka is by far the nicest front desk associate I've ever met. Hands down. She always has your towels and sheets ready at ANY time ( late night, whatever) and toiletries too. Jeronica is also great. She has a great attitude and is always informative, if you have any questions. I...

Hotel is cheap 58$, but you don't get a lot, room is clean but smells like hairspray, has a little stove microwave and fridge but is very small. Majority of guests seem to be transients and a lot of little thugs, good parking but lock your car! Overall is ok lodging for construction worker or a single guy but don't...

I had the occasion to visit one of my coworkers at this hotel and I wanted to share my perspective. I read the reviews before I left and I expected something for more insidious and gloomy than what I walked into. For a short term solution; it is a pretty cool setup - a little table and TV and beds...
