I spent two nights here this past week. We chose the place because it is the closest hotel to where friends live. It looks like the place also rents rooms by the month...there were some unsavory characters in the parking lot. The motel is undergoing remodelation, so maybe it will be better in the future. The room we had was...

This hotel is extremely convenient to Wake Medical in Raleigh. That is the only good thing I can say about it. It is run down and the rooms are in poor condition. The worst is the smell--staying in the room we had was akin to sleeping in an old damp ashtray. I had to wash all of the clothing we...

Weekly was $280 for one spaceous room. They clean every day, overall it's okay. It's cheap so it does attract those who are considered ghetto. They don't have iron and pressing board in the room though.

My wife and I stayed this past week at this hotel. Apparently management had changed in the last few months however we found this to be exactly what we wanted and needed. It is located by frequent buses so the remote area was actually a benefit. Near to shopping areas and a small grocery/restaurant strip mall for foods if you...

The first time I stayed at this hotel, I stayed in a room upstairs. I was very impressed by the size and condition of that room! It was definitely a good room for the price. The only things I did not like about the first room was the shower was hard to figure out, it was a smoking room and...
