Hillsborough, North Carolina
Reviewed 21 November 2015 via mobile

Great little place in Hillsborough. Comfortable room and bed and good breakfast each day! Great staff. Located 5 minutes from Triangle Sportsplex so would recommend it for weekend tournaments and events. Only negative is that although it does have non-smoking rooms, it is not a smoke-free facility.

The motel was off to itself on a hill. Nice breakfast, clean rooms, big parking lot. Would stay there again. Needed a place to stay late. The staff was very friendly. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was clean. Breakfast had a variety of choices. Plenary for everyone.

We stayed here one night on our way to Durham for a Duke football game. Breakfast was ok, good but not exciting. The lady who was overseeing the breakfast area was very sweet, and at everyone's beck and call--she's a class act! The room was great; clean, comfy bed, and quiet! No complaints.

My husband and I have stayed here for the past 4 years. We make the trip from Florida to attend the Vietri Warehouse event. The staff are very welcoming and the rooms are very clean and quiet. They have a light breakfast bar and coffee. We hope to return this year.

We reserved a handicapped room but noted that had one of us been in a wheelchair, there was very little room to maneuver between the bed and chest of drawers. Bathroom was well-equipped with "curb-less" shower stall and plenty of grab bars. (We advised the manager on duty that the shower was VERY slippery, even for a sure-of-foot person, and...

My family rented adjoining rooms. When we checked in one of the assigned rooms had been partially cleaned - bed stripped, etc. - but the maid apparently left for the day without finishing her cleaning. Manager was quick to reassign new rooms and to apologize for the problem. One of the reassigned rooms had a strong musty smell, but was...

We stayed for the 4th year on the way to the NC beach for AAA of $94 and were very satisfied. It's improved with excellent management: clean and beautiful bedding and breakfast. Especially nice: there was no mold in the Ac filters which is a good find in the North Carolina summer.
