The staff (Moses) was awesome and gave us several worthy recommendations for dinner. Shout out to Bad Daddy's Burger Bar. The room was clean, comfortable and had a few extras we weren't expecting. Breakfast was very nice as well. A good send off for our continued travels. The hotel itself was perfectly located near some very nice shopping and dining.
Pro and a con: Near interstate so there was highway noise. We turned it into white noise and it was fine. The pool was out of order. They had accommodations somewhere else, but too tired to drive to it.
The rooms are mini-suites with separate bedrooms and a kitchenette. Clean, comfortable and affordable. The night staff was great. Very helpful and cheerful. The morning checkout staff...would rather not be doing that job.
A "King size" room cost us about $130 with tax. The room, bath, lobby, and eating area were all very clean and comfy. We had a Jacuzzi in our room much to our surprise. We stayed here overnight so we could be nearby the NC Renaissance Faire. The Faire was only 5-10 minutes away and I think this is the best hotel in such a range. They also sell discounted tickets for multiple events at the hotel.
The breakfast was typically lousy of any non-ritzy hotel. It includes: bagels, muffins, runny eggs, greasy sausage or bacon (not very good at all...), cereal, waffles, milk, and some fruit. Yes, there is somewhat of a variety, but most of it tastes pretty lousy. There's an iHop down the road if you'd prefer slightly better food.
Staff was extremely nice and helpful.
