Just stayed one night for a quick visit to Raleigh. The hotel was centrally located and the bar made a great cocktail. But my primary reason for writing this review is to say how much I appreciated Shidai, the overnight front desk clerk, who went above and beyond to make sure my stay was good. Wonderful, friendly and accommodating person who was a bright spot to the trip!

Boutique-y but definitely not comfortable, not modern, doors right to the outside like a 1950’s hotel. Is a remodeled Motel 6, so that tells you something. The “snacks” in the room are charged for. The bed was so uncomfortable I woke up after tossing and turning, thinking it was almost 6 and it was only 1:30. A very long,, uncomfortable night, to say the least. The cherry on top was the $260 bill for one night. For that price I’ve stayed at the 5-star Inn At Christmas Place in TN, Grove Park Inn, and several 4- and 5-star Marriott properties and been far more comfortable. Recently, I attended a tournament in Sioux Falls SD at the Best Western Conference Center for half the price and had an amazingly comfortable, lovely bed and breakfast included, not to mention secure doors on the inside halls. Still not sure what makes this place “boutique.” No thanks.

Room Tip: If possible, get one of the second floor rooms with interior doors for better security. Not sure...

This place is wonderful. It is clean, properly appointed, comfortable with nice linens and a great shower. I was pleasantly surprised they took a very 1960 Hotel, and turn it into a hip tasteful boutique hotel. They have a honor bar snacks in the room, a Bluetooth, JBL speaker, small bags of ice in ice machine,robe, wine bar, coffee. Note: no elevator but plenty of first floor rooms. I had room 48 2nd floor with trees to insulate from road noise.

The hotel is very cute and well decorated. I was impressed from the get go when they texted me the morning of my trip welcoming me and asking if I had any questions. Great feature! I loved the filtered water stations and the robes in the rooms. The hotel was about a 3-4 block walk from the main downtown area. I was disappointed to find out that every room does not have a bluetooth speaker like the website mentions. Not a huge deal - but I do like to have background music and would have packed my own. Again, not a huge deal, but the front desk rep did not say anything other than "not every room has one" when I asked about it. Poor taste to advertise it that way. My biggest issue with my stay here was the noise! We could hear *everything* from the room next to us. We could also hear conversations from the patio in our room Saturday morning. Not just kind of hear some noise -- it was loud enough it felt like they were in our room. Not super enjoyable when trying to enjoy sleeping in a relaxing trip. I really wanted to love this hotel, but I probably will not stay here again due to being able to hear everything from the surrounding rooms. Felt like we had no privacy.

Great bed, great bar, spotless, friendly, helpful and surprisingly quiet given its location near a busy road. Nice view of Magnolias out the window. Check in was easy and staff was so helpful in recommending places to eat.

We were happy to find something downtown with parking included. Check in was fast and friendly. The hotel is a 1950's or 60s motel renovated with modern amenities. The lounge was nice and we enjoyed the retro look. I didn't enjoy being approached by a staff member, blond woman who seemed upset at my being seated at the bar before 4pm. Unpleasant experience. The room was clean and spacious. The only issue we had, was that the pillows were too thick. The mattress was comfortable. No issues there. Recommended.

This is such a cozy Motel! I remember this being a not so nice location for Years so I was excited this has been renovated and turned into a Boutique style Motel. The front desk and bar service was 10/10, Simple yet clean and modern room, Comfy bed, and a nice shower w/ built in amenities. There are refreshments in the room(for a fee but not crazy like most high end spots). There’s even a wine opener and Robes - I love small details like this. I Highly recommend just for a staycation if you’re local or if from out of town you will feel that small city welcome!💜

The hotel has all the basics but with well-appointed details----like the Pendelton throw, adjustable shower head (I've had my fill of gentle sprays that just don't wash the soap away), wall-mounted soaps in the shower so there's no waste. I was especially impressed with those working the front desk. I needed to get a ride at about 4:45 a.m. on a Sunday, and Maury kept making calls until he finally found one willing to drive me to the airport.

A lovely small boutique motel. Excellent bar, genuinely awesome staff. Location is good and close to several restaurants and very easy to reach by car. Rooms are nicely decorated and internet worked perfectly during my stay. I really enjoyed my stay and can warmly recommend it!

Good place to hang your hat. Nothing wrong, nothing special (except for the wonderful folks who work the front desk). A bit over-priced, given the lack of daily service and the pretend breakfast. But this is what the current market allows for. Loved the many good eateries and overall convenience of the location.
