Convenient to NC State, but most aspects of this property have more dived since I was here a year ago and I would not come back; elevators filthy, computers trashed and in operable, workout equipment pathetic and nowhere nearby to eat. Sad to see the hotel decline so quickly.

I cant say enough nice things about this hotel. The staff was accommodating throughout our stay and everyone worked with a smile on their face. We evacuated from our hometown during Florence and this hotel was one of the few that accepted pets and even waived the pet free becaus

Thank you so much for allowing us to accommodate you during such a time! We saw how many evacuees refused to allow the hurricane to break their spirits and just how resilient you all were. It was pleasure to be of assistance to our fellow North Carolinian. We hope you'll visit us on a much happier occasion. Best wishes, Milton Hamilton, CHA

Right now the hotel is in a quiet area not far from NCSU. Friendly, helpful staff. Rooms not fancy but clean. It is about 5-6 miles from everything you need in Cary, including good restaurants and shopping so if you are there for business at NCSU, during your free time, you can

I need to be shuttled to Raleigh Airport and picked up on return flight and to have car parked there until my return and another night's stay. Can you accommodate me? Thanks, Jim
Thank you for your interest in our property! Unfortunately, we do not offer a shuttle services. RDU Airport taxis are available near all baggage claim areas, and the cost one way is $35. Once you arrive at the property, tell our Guest Service agents your transportation needs, and we'll arrange taxi service from our property. Please call us direct to inquire about out complimentary parking for guests. Let me know how I can assist further. Regards, Milton Hamilton

"Rooms away from the elevator because people tend to talk loudly when getting off the elevator."
"be sure to book well in advance if a special event is on your calendar"
"High floor, away from elevator"
"I had a room on the top at the end of the hall. It was a nice big room and very comfortable."
"I always find the upper floors quieter. The facility is well constructed so outside sounds have never bothered me."
