Any one giving this place less than five stars is out of their minds. Truly an amazing hotel. Everything I need inside a hotel room, great a/c, wonderful shower, refrigerator, microwave, nice tv, and an oh so comfortable bed. I arrived really late and even the all night check in guy was super friendly and had my reservation ready, which...

Holiday Inn Raleigh / Wake Forest- Property is super clean and modern. The shower pressure worked well. And although the hotel is 14 years old it's maintained incredibly well. Great staff and awesome breakfast. Love the location especially-It's in a very safe area and near tons of shops and entertainment venues. We were within in minutes of Go Ape Zip...

The facility was clean and the staff was very nice. However, my traveling companion and I booked our room over 2 months prior to our visit. We requested 2 beds. When we arrived and went to our room, there was only 1 bed. I went to the desk and was told a room with 2 beds was not available because...

Convenient to Raleigh. 15 minutes to the center of the city and close to the belt ways. Close to stores and restaurants. Very friendly staff. Breakfast is good. Fitness center could use more equipment.

This is a very good hotel to choose if you are staying in this area. The breakfast was hot and very good each morning. The staff went out of their way to accommodate any request. There are quite a few restaurants to choose from that are close and a mall that isn't to far away either.

With over 35 years in the hospitality industry, I have a difficult time "relaxing" in a hotel as my mind wanders to all areas of operations and what might be done better. This property is an exception as I found myself relaxing and enjoying the property. The physical plant is well maintained, the rooms as spacious, clean and comfortable and...

Stayed here while in town for a weekend soccer tournament. The hotel was conveniently located to a nice variety of restaurants. Clean rooms, good breakfast and the wifi worked great. One minor complaint: the room had a single serve Keurig brewer for coffee and tea. But because it was located in the bathroom right next to the sink, it grossed...

You cannot go wrong with Holiday Inn Express and Suites! They are just a great hotel chain and the one in Wake Forest is no different. First of all I love the location. You feel like you're in the country but really you're a few streets over from everything. The folks who checked me in were friendly and professional. The...
