Clean room and nice staff. All expectations were met. The staff is minimal but adequate and very friendly. There is good parking and lots of places to eat all around. The location is very good for access to either Raleigh or Cary. We recommend it.

Very basic hotel with zero amenities. About all I can say is that it was clean and quiet which is exact ally what we wanted while working in the area. Stayed about a month with no issues at all. If budget lodging is good for then this is for you...if you are looking for luxury then not.

Thank you for taking the time to provide the review. When our guests stay at Red Roof Inns across the US, they immediately notice two things: what a great price they're getting for a clean, comfortable room, and how helpful the Red Roof staff is, whether they are giving directions, guidance, or just suggestions on what to do that evening....

So the hurricane knocked out the power in our house and after 2 days we decided to check into this hotel for a hot shower and some sleep. It was the only hotel around not fully booked up.

We needed a pet friendly place in a pinch. It was a great price but it didn't look like the room had been cleaned. The front desk staff was friendly. But everything else was not up to snuff. I would avoid if possible.
