Traveled to Raleigh for a visit to a couple of schools in the area. I didn't know the area so selected a hotel that was reasonably priced, and this Best Western certainly fit the bill. It is an average hotel, for the price. It wasn't particularly clean, not really dirty - somewhere in between. The room I stayed in was...

The hallway of the building that I stayed in (I had to stay in a separate building from the main one) smelled very bad...very musty and moldy. Adults and children were hanging outside of the building after 11 p.m. The police showed up....not exactly sure what happened because I arrived when the officer was leaving. Adults were smoking right in...

Very nice, clean, and convenient hotel at a good price. Traveling as a lone woman, I felt safe at this hotel. I was just bummed out that the pool was closed after Labor Day although it was 95 degrees.

This is an excellent centrally located place to stay. Although it is not as new as the Best Western on Walnut Street the staff is very friendly and accommodating. On a previous visit I asked Christine where a good deal on a bike could be found. She directed me to the pawn shop across the street. Sure enough we found...

The BW Raleigh North-Downtown is a great place to stay. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was immaculately clean and very spacious and the breakfast was AWESOME! The location of this BW is perfect close to downtown plus very close to convenient stores, gas stations and restaurants. Very, very easy to access from any direction.

The staff is very pleasant, the smell is not. The first room smelled like mildew horribly. They were fully prepared to switch rooms and the second room was right next door and only a little better. They were fully prepared to keep switching us but we gave up and bought air spray. There was no hot water in the bathroom...

When we checked into the hotel, it was raining.. the guest hallway smelled of mildew. Also, there were roaches in the room, small and medium size. Each day the maid came in to clean, she finished with spraying the carpet with some type of solution, which I am sure was to combat the smell in the room. The bed was...

Stayed here for a night when we went to see a concert locally. It was cheap, free breakfast free wifi. The room was comfy, was close by to fast food and restaurants and was a 10 min drive from the concert venue so worked a treat for us. I didnt notice any of the issues the other negitive reviews showed.
