Just off the interstate but nice and quiet on the wooded side of hotel. Mid-week stay would be classified as a "business" hotel. Clean and comfortable room. Breakfast buffet was disappointing compared to our last HIE experience (in Fort Myers). The biscuits and gravy were really good; but, the powdered (assumption) eggs were dry and browned. The overall selection and set-up was comparatively less than what we expected. Important note: Finding restaurants in the hotel area was nearly impossible. Fast food was even limited. The real restaurants are apparently all downtown. We thought that we would find more things to see and do in a university-heavy city. Apparently, we were wrong. But the hotel was nice.

I always choose this location when traveling to the area. The staff always makes me feel welcome. The desk staff is amazing, the breakfast staff is great, and the housekeeping always has a smile. They always recognize my Diamond Status and I see the same familiar faces every time. Thank you

Great stay at the 1-40 Dillard Rd location in Raleigh. Anesha (front desk) was very welcoming and helped out with a few logistics on arrival, room was clean, good breakfast, convenient location. Kids enjoyed the pool and gym. Would stay here again.

This hotel is conveniently close to the interstate, but being surrounded by woods proved very quiet. It features standard mid-range breakfast fare, and an indoor pool and hot tub (the latter inoperative at the time of our visit). There was a freezer in the mini-frig, which is always welcome news because we need one to refresh the dry ice for our coolers overnight. Alas, the bed proved as hard as a rock-- I woke up very stiff-- and the room at large needs renovation. The furniture was "well used," and the bathroom surfaces have suffered more than a few chips. In sum, we concluded that we paid about $65 more than we should have for this stay.

So. We visit family in High Point NC as often as possible. Have stayed mostly @ hotels in Archdale NC. Although I searched for hotels in Sept, the places in Archdale we're prohibitively expensive. We are usually very happy with stays @ Holiday Inn Express but this was a bit different. First, I want to say that all staff we interacted with were so pleasant & courteous. No issues. The room was clean but had a pervasive sulphur odor that was ridiculous. DUDE- fix the stink! One other glitch was the breakfast. We're not picky about the free breakfast anywhere but all hot entrees we're closed a full 1/2 hour before the specified time. All in all, OK but less than 4 stars. Except the staff- 5 star all the way. Thank you, gracious people!

Room was clean and comfortable. Hotel is almost hidden amongst the trees, which made for a very quiet stay. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was your typical hotel breakfast, nothing special, but good. Would stay here again if in the area.

Although the Holiday Inn Express is very close to the NCSU Campus and several restaurants/shopping centers, it seems very secluded (in a good way). There was no traffic noise to keep me up at night. The grounds were well-kept. The area seems very safe, and at night the parking lot and entrance areas are well-lit and the exterior doors are locked (accessible by one's room key). The lobby was beautiful. I was greeted immediately upon entering and was checked in quickly. The entire building was spotless, including the stairways (which are usually neglected). My room was immaculate, including the tub and shower. They cleaned my room daily (although most hotels have stopped daily cleaning since COVID). There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room, as well as a safe. The hot breakfast was excellent and well-stocked (a time and money-saver). The staff was very friendly and cordial, from checking in, to the morning breakfast, to checking out early in the morning (around 4:00 AM). I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in the Raleigh/NCSU area.

Stayed here for one night during an unexpected road trip from NYC to FL. A great little find booked from the IHG website 20 mins before arriving. Check in was very welcoming and room exceptionally clean. We ate in the hotel next door which was convenient considering we didn't want to drive out again after such a long trip. Breakfast was plentiful. A very pleasing stay

Overall this is a nice, comfortable, family-friendly hotel. Friendly staff. Good breakfast and lobby to enjoy take out meals. Easy access from airport and to downtown Raleigh. Pool was a little cool but family still enjoyed the pool time.

I've stayed twice within the past month at this Holiday Inn Express and both times have been nothing short of amazing! Nathan is such an asset to the hotel with his professionalism and great personality. We ended up staying a second night and booked a separate reservation for the second night and he called just to double check that it wasn't a duplicate reservation, which I thought was very nice of him to do that. Our room was very clean and had plenty of space for my mom, daughter, and I. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious. It was very obvious that the hotel is taking Covid precautions seriously which I definitely appreciate. We felt very safe staying at this hotel as well and the parking lot is very well lit and offers plenty of parking spaces. Thanks again for another great stay and we'll be back in August!
