We reserved a handicapped room but noted that had one of us been in a wheelchair, there was very little room to maneuver between the bed and chest of drawers. Bathroom was well-equipped with "curb-less" shower stall and plenty of grab bars. (We advised the manager on duty that the shower was VERY slippery, even for a sure-of-foot person, and...

My family rented adjoining rooms. When we checked in one of the assigned rooms had been partially cleaned - bed stripped, etc. - but the maid apparently left for the day without finishing her cleaning. Manager was quick to reassign new rooms and to apologize for the problem. One of the reassigned rooms had a strong musty smell, but was...

We stayed for the 4th year on the way to the NC beach for AAA of $94 and were very satisfied. It's improved with excellent management: clean and beautiful bedding and breakfast. Especially nice: there was no mold in the Ac filters which is a good find in the North Carolina summer.

This was an overnight stay after a business meeting in Hillsborough. The hotel was renovated, probably within the last year. It appears the renovations were a rush effort or they are still in progress. The hotel still has smoking rooms, so reserve carefully. Cleanliness was not a problem. Breakfast was not the greatest. Warm food was cool or cold.

We've stayed here twice and both timed we messed up our reservations online. Both times they changed them to our advantage so we didn't have to pay so much. They were very happy we were there to stay and we were too. Rooms were large and comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good... First place I have found that serves walnuts...
