“Perfect for OUR needs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2008

We stayed at this hotel in OCT 08 and it was perfect for what our group wanted. Let me start by saying that we did NOT want a five star hotel, we were looking for a place to stay for the weekend to go to a UNC football game. We tend to get a little loud and tend to make a mess so I didn't want to get kicked out of a "nice" hotel after driving 12 hours to go to a game. After reading a few reviews I was sure this hotel fit the bill. Once we arrived I was plesently surprised, the rooms were clean and the hotel was very nice. The exterior doors were perfect and our room was right next to a outdoor picnic area ( a couple of tables and 2 outdoor grills) which allowed us to start our tailgating a little early. The one room suite had a bedroom wiith two beds and a living room with a pull out sofa, 2 full bathrooms and a full kitchen. The only thing that could have been better was if there was a dishwasher, or at the very least they should have supplied some dish soap. The staff was very nice and allowed us to check in early. Its about a 15 minute drive to UNC and there is plenty stores around to find whatever your looking for. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Smelly, ugly, cheaply decorated, dirty- our room was so depressing. I wanted to leave, but we just toughed it out for the night and tried not to touch anything. Don't stay here!!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2007

I got this hotel at a good price through Priceline and was surprised to discover that it is well located and very clean. It is next to a mall with a Starbucks and a high end supermarket. We found it so convenient to walk 3 minutes to get coffee in the morning(there's coffee maker in the room) and browse the wonderful supermarket. Rooms are of adequate sizes and very clean.The only disappointment is the internet connections seem to drift on and off. We will go back again.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times for long-term stays. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly.

Any problems I have had were quickly resolved.

The fact that it is next door to a strip mall with a multi-plex and grocery store is an added bonus.
