We decided to stay in this hotel (HIE is my normal chain due to travel with kids); the site is very quiet and secluded feeling, despite its location right off 1 and about 7-8 minutes from downtown Wake Forest. There is clearly a lot of growth in the area, but this hotel is nice and quiet. The most notable part...

Summary: I certainly enjoyed my stay at this property. The location is rather quiet, which was nice for a change. The facility seems relatively new and is well presented. The rooms are nice, the staff are friendly and helpful and the morning breakfast offering is adequate. The room rates are quite reasonable making this place a relatively good deal. Details:...

I was living here 3 days for a transition. Heater was *noisy* (nothing wrong with it, just noisy by design). TV had issues; called 4 times with no resolution and little interest in fixing it. Eventually just gave up calling them about it. They forgot to clean my room one day, even after I had talked to the supervisor while...

Amazing stay! Check in was a breeze... Very close to my destination. The front desk agent was very helpful. A lot of good restaurants in proximity. This will be my new place to stay, as I request Raleigh, NC!

Very friendly staff and very clean rooms and facilities. I am on the road 4 days a week and love to stay at this location. Quiet, comfortable, and updated rooms. Complementary breakfast with the nicest "Breakfast Lady" ever.

Was here for a conference, and the stay was great. The room was very clean and smelled of...nothing! Which is so rare, it's usually either musty or cleaning chemicals. The breakfast was varied and well-stocked. There was some room noise, it's not as well noise insulated as others, but the clientele during my stay kept that from being a problem....

Definitely on the higher end of the spectrum in terms of quality in Holiday Inn Express locations I've stayed at. Staff was friendly and outgoing, room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was hot and reliable. As noted by a number of other people, the location can be a bit awkward to find (totally visible from the main road, takes some...
