This is a very nice, decently priced hotel. The rooms are all updated. The hotel is very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a nice pool, and the hotel is in a quiet location. The complimentary breakfast was very good and had a large selection of food.

We were there for 3 days and all the staff (especially Dane) provided consistently wonderful customer service making our stressful trip that much better. The rooms were great. The computer in the business center wasn't working properly and I don't know if it got fixed. The location is one block off the main drag and across from a vacant fast...

Came to Apex for the Annual Pig Fest and just needed a room for the night. Got more than we expected here. We arrived a couple of minutes before check in time, but they got us right in. People at the desk were very friendly and helpful. A very nice place in a nice town. A nicer price.

The hotel was very quiet, despite being full. Breakfast area was clean. Food was hot and fresh. The only problem we had was, upon arrival, the room had an odd smell. Housekeeping took care of it right away. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful.

The staff were very pleasant and helpful, and the accommodations were well appointed. The rooms were large, the beds were comfortable, and the noise level was very low, but we were on the 4th floor, which was a plus. Even though we weren't far from the elevator, hallway noise was not a problem at all. The heating units are easy...

We stayed here this weekend for a soccer tournament that was in Holly Springs. It was a quick drive to the park. We ate at the Mexican restaurant that was next door. It was pretty good and very convenient. Walmart was close also which was nice since we needed to pick up a few things. Some people complained about noise...

I rarely stay at HIE properties. But this was surprisingly nice. It felt like an older property but it was very clean. There were gaps around the door so noise comes in from the hallway. There was also some outside car noise but it was not too bad. Good wifi and the A/C worked well. The room was good sized...

Super nice and clean hotel. Very new, so still very nice. Kind of in a hidden location, but you can get to it from Marco St or turn at the McDonalds if you're coming off US1 or coming from the Holly Springs side of 55. Our kids loved the free breakfast choices. My wife left her brand new Clinique facesoap...

My company booked this stay for me for a month, and I was very impressed not only was the hotel very very clean and quiet but the service was far surpassed. If you're in town for a short or long stay this is a must stay. Very close to everything restaurants, shopping ect. You will not be disappointed.

Great hotel with great service!! Karla at the front desk was extremely helpful at check-in and one of the most friendliest front desk agents I have met yet! Rooms were clean, hotel was clean and the breakfast was good. I would definitely stay here again.
