Walls are paper thin. A cacophony of tv's blaring, doors slamming, people marching in the room above, and kids running in the halls (on a school night in September?). This went on all night long. Front entrance littered with cigerette butts. Unsavory characters just kinda hanging around - I suspect this place was home to a few of them. Won't be back.

Room Tip: If you must pick a top floor room and make sure you bolt the door.

I visit a friend in Guilford every year and this is where I stay. They have remodelled the common areas and moved the gym to the basement to expand the lobby as well. Desk Staff is always attentive an pleasant. (Though I have tried to call the hotel on several occasions and the phone was unanswered.) Rooms clean and comfortable. Try not to get a room facing the car dealership, which has bright lights at night. Pool is a little small but pleasant and clean. Breakfast has warm sweet rolls, eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles and the usual assortment of cold fruit, cereal, etc.

Room Tip: Not on the car dealership side.

Stayed with family for a nearby wedding for my daughter. Very nice front desk woman got us in a room early. Room had a minor issue, she switched us no problem. New room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was well stocked. General manager even offered to drive my daughter when Uber didn’t show, very nice touch. Whole staff was really great, wonderful stay!

This location is 2/10 mi south of exit 55 of I-95 on business US-1. Next door is a pizza/sub restaurant. Directly across the road is a newly opened steak house,(Google Maps show it as a Hibachi house).There is a variety of restaurants and a multi screen movie theater within a 3 min drive.
The property has been recently remodeled and is clean enough that I mistook it as brand new. The staff is very friendly (on a 3 night stay).The breakfast is as good as you find in this price range. The TV has 68 channels,(including HBO, YES, NESN, NBCSN, and BBCA).
2 (minor) issues, first there is no entrance that aligns with a traffic signal. But the shoulders are paved and are wide enough that traffic can get by you as you wait to make a left turn.The other is since this is a wood structure (which transmits noise) the HVAC is set so you can't get the constant fan on to drown out the noise of your neighbors.
