There are a couple hotel chains that I ALWAYS enjoy staying in, and Holiday Inn Express is one of them. They are so consistent everywhere, and this location was outstanding. The best part was the Bed it was super comfortable, and begged you to stay in it, and as always white linens. The room overall was very spacious with everything...

I had a great time staying here for the night. It was an excellent price and an even better stay. The rooms were spotless upon arrival and to top it all off the breakfast was even better. I loved that the hotel was only a short drive to downtown Raleigh so we could spend most of the day there and...

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!

I was recently traveling for a few comedy shows in North Carolina’s Triangle area, and I stayed at Raleigh’s Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites North. I enjoyed my stay, and look forward to coming back. Both nights’ super-late check-ins were easy, quick and uncomplicated. Lori was somehow cheerful at 1:00 a.m. both nights, got me all set up. I...

Everything went great with my recent stay here in Wake Forest. Front desk was more than helpful on the phone with an early check in and was able to help point us in the direction of a wonderful restaurant. Waking up with tea and a hot breakfast was extra special and the cleaning lady was more than respectful of our...

This place rocks! From the time I walked in, I smelled a light floral scented disinfectant. It wasn't just the old spray the front door trick either. The lobby and every floor had the same sanitary smell. The entire hotel was spotless, smoke free, and quiet. Crystal at the front desk is the living embodiment of exemplary customer service. She...

Upon arrival, the woman working at the front desk was very warm and hospitable, especially for how late it was, she was sure to let me know of all the amenities and even food options around the area. The room itself was comfy. Breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts I've had while traveling. Normally, you'll get just packets...

The location of this hotel is in a relatively quiet setting. The service and accommodation were exceptional. But a couple of things stand out. Along with being pet friendly (which we appreciate), in the evening they had a sampling from a local eatery. Breakfast made an impression on me. We travel quite a bit and have dined on a very...
