We had been driving all through the night and stopped early morning The staff were so kind to let us check in early The halls had a pleasant very clean smell unlike many other hotels we’ve stayed at

Our room was was large, modern, clean smell and welcoming The ONLY thing that wasn’t clean was the bathroom mirror but that’s not a big deal Fantastic location Starbucks, Panera bread, cold stone, a movie theater going in and many other stores all in walking distance By far the best comfort Inn we have stayed at Thank you for the last minute accommodations for our family to get some much needed sleep


Disappointed because pool temp closed Main reason for choosing hotel Also, no bathtub- prob why no pics of full bathroom where I booked

No ice bag either Overall tho, nice hotel & good location I probably would have got a better room if I didn’t go through a third party I suggest calling I had to make sure of availability of their amenities before booking so you can make the most informed decision

Hayley Currier

The staff was welcoming and kind, but that’s really the only positive I have The elevators were covered in stains and smelled like pee

The hallway carpeting wasn’t much better and also carried an odorThe rooms themselves were fine besides the dinged up walls and the noisy AC unitBreakfast was very “eh” The waffle machine didn’t work, the fruit was bad and so was the ketchupNot impressed for the price

Upon arrival, check in staff was very rude I don’t know why I continued to be friendly despite the way I was being treated

He just made my whole visit unpleasant On a brighter note My room was clean and my bedding was fresh The bed was comfy I wanted to see if the hotel had a a la carte item for sale, so I called to the front desk to see if they did Once again the same front desk person was rude he assumed I was trying to get a freebie, and rudely explained to me why they couldn’t give that item away I said I wanted to know if there was any u could buy? There wasn’t , which was all he needed to say I guess my profile didn’t meet his standards!Breakfast in the morning was nice a good variety and kept clean The woman was very friendly Upon checkout I was treated much better by a very pleasant woman Thank goodness!I feel if People don’t like people they should not work in customer service!!!!

Jonathan Fletcher

Very nice, updated hotel The staff were amazing – friendly and knowledgeable We came with a group of 8 teenagers for an event in the area and they had no trouble or complaints with accommodating our group

The breakfast was excellent for a hotel breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised to find bacon on the buffet The rooms themselves were recently updated and very nice and clean Bring your own K-cups for use in the in-room Kuerig Their options on that are limited but available Although we didn’t utilize it, the proximity to a Cracker Barrell (just a hop and skip from the front door) could be an added bonus We will return!

Frank Mohrbutter

I would have given more stars as the room is nice They say they have breakfast but really all it is is the sides that come with a real breakfast No eggs no bacon or sausage

Breakfast is important to me I travel for work and count on a decent breakfast at the hotel so I do t have to stop on the road Cereal and a muffin ain’t cutting it for me To me it’s like saying yes we have dinner and handing you a kids happy meal I have been to other hotels during all these covid protocols and they managed to serve a decent breakfast So if your traveling and want decent breakfast this hotel will leave you looking elsewhere

This hotel has pros and consPros: the door locks The bathroom fixtures worked

The sheets were cleanCons: everything is ratty Most surfaces didn’t appear clean Things are broken AC in the room I was in was moderately quiet for a few minutes at a time, but when the compressor turned on, it was loud, and sounded like it might fall out of the wall When the compressor turned off, it was quieter again Tough to sleep next to that Breakfast was pretty awful

Roger Stanton

You get what you pay for Except here Selected the Comfort Suites because it was appx 40% more expensive than our other options in the area

The pictures looked decent enough, thought it was perhaps a newer property with nicer things — including a nice staffWrong on all counts: service was somewhere between less than hospitable and total indifference, water pressure in shower was nonexistent, breakfast was probably the best the place has to offer and the scrambled eggs were like they had been washed in a bucket of water, the location couldn’t possibly be “new” as it’s so badly wornSleep is the top concern wherever I’m staying overnight, and “Comfort” shouldn’t even be in this location’s name The air conditioner quit cooling the room and made sleep on the hardened mattress impossible Checkout was smooth, and welcome: drop room key in fishbowl at front desk and don’t look backMy advice, find a better place and save your money

michael miller

we are just now checking in and getting to the room so at the moment I’m going to mark it three stars, So far everything is great! Front desk was very polite and helpful, check-in was fast and without any problems (we booked online with a 3rd party) the room is clean and well taken care of, this will be a one night review stay so we will be updating after breakfast for a final reviewFULL REVIEW— so as the clothes out to my review I have absolutely nothing that I can say negatively about this hotel, we had a great night sleep the hotel was quiet throughout the evening the front desk appeared to be manned at all times and having had an opportunity to utilize the gym the only complaint I would have is that there was no hand sanitizer at the time, the shower in the bathroom had great water pressure,tub drain nicely And all appliances in the room were working perfectly and in good clean order, Should we be in need of a close by staycation this would definitely be the 1st on my list, I highly recommend

This Hampton Inn is, by far, the best hotel in the Raleigh area that I have stayed in The rooms are gorgeous, impeccably clean, spacious and functional Every staff member that I have ever encountered has been welcoming and friendly

The complimentary breakfast is always great with lot’s of options The location is convenientI’ve stayed in many hotels and I can tell this one is run with great care and attention to detail Stay here- you won’t regret it!

I am a Hilton Honors member Booked room Used AAA discount

Needed to cancel the reservation 5 days in advance of my stay Called the Hampton Inn facility direct No answer This went on for 11 tries All the time I was also doing an online chat with Hilton Honors and was told the reservations were non refundable I challenged that They suggested they I contact them directly! HELLO???? 11 tries and no answer…what do I need to do- drive there? I finally got my husband who is a platinum member to call corporate Got it cancelled, however THE REPRESENTATIVE tried calling the facility direct with her personal cell phone and also no one answered FINALLY she used her resources and contacted the General Manager who agreed to cancel the reservation Note that all the while this was happening, I continued to call the facility direct…On the 12th try I was finally connected to a recording that directed me to an option to EDIT my reservation The front desk must have been asleep in that back room where they hide I cannot imagine front desk being that busy to not be able to answer the phone that is ringing incessantly!!!!! SLACKERS THERE ARE OTHER PLACES NEARBY TO STAY ALWAYS, ALWAYS, check cancellation policy because it is HIDDEN behind “ flexible date change options” PROCEED WITH CAUTION THEY TAKE YOUR MONEY QUICKLY BUT ARE SLOW OR DIFFICULT TO REFUND OR ADJUST!! Corporate Office will be advised of this situation Should not have taken me 45 min to cancel / “edit”

Tiffany Harris

My daughter reserved a room back in December to have her fiance’ a surprise birthday party Today a week before the party she was informed they could not have the event, all of a sudden they couldn’t accommodate the number of guests Customer service fail!! Good thing we all hadn’t booked our rooms to stay

This poor service resulted in a loss all the way around Don’t make plans with them!!!

for a 3 star rated hotel I give them 5 stars The hotel is very clean and updated The location is right off 95

It won’t disappoint The best thing about the hotel is truly the staff Crissi and Sarah both went out of there way to find me a room on the first floor They were super busy at the front desk, but immediately recognize you and attend to your needs Thanks a million ladies

Darcy O’Brien

The hotel itself is decent, clean, the staff is friendly However, the bed (at least ours) was on top of some hollow metal bed frame so every time you move on the bed, the metal below you pops and makes a lot of noise It’s like putting a mattress on a filing cabinet

If you don’t move at all while you sleep, you’ll probably be fine But if you do, or have a dog that might not like the sound (ours was afraid of it), this may not be a place for you The walls are also very thin We could hear people in the shower next door to us & hear their entire conversation I thought they were in the hallway, turns out they were next doorOverall, the hotel is decent and a good location Super easy to get back on the highway if that’s why you’re stopping & staying in Smithfield


Stayed here for one night on a weekend night passing through from Florida to NY My expectations were higher based on the website/photos We stayed with our two small cats and that was an extra $60 to the rate

The hotel has a nice spacious lobby area The room seemed ok at first but during use it was not up to standard The beds are on a metal base that is extremely loud anytime you move in the night The pillows are very firm and uncomfortable The tub was dirty and stained Walls are thin and can hear everything your neighbors are doing through the vents in the bathroom Overall I don’t believe the value was there, we like that it’s a pet friendly option but it was not worth what we paid

We stayed one day and one of the room was infested with ants We only came to know following day after my family were bitten by ants and it was not acceptable When we checked out we informed our concern to the front desk and she told me she needs to talk to the general manager

They talked behind the counter and she came back and told me they can offer to give $20 dollars We were very frustrated and complaint if anyone can take the room when ants are everywhere However she told me that’s what they can offer! Manager didn’t show up to us and apologized but left the scene well before we have been in IHG hotels numerous times but this never has been a concern until now We asked this is going to be a reputable damage to IHG if this is how they treat customers She was indifferent to the situation We did not accept their offer and contacted IHG They told me that this can be an insurance claim and this is not acceptable and escalated the claim to the top management After we left, hotel’s general manager finally called us and apologized and told me that he can refund one of the two rooms to settle the case We told them that this is very disappointing We are not asking for any refund or any monetary compensation but sought for an apology at the time we raised the concern Hotel has sanitary rating A everywhere on their walls but ants were also everywhere The manager only contacted us to apologize only after IHG reached out and told them the possible contract revoke in the future! IHG needs to better manage their hotels! We have stayed in many different locations in the past but this truly disappoints us If they want to keep the business in a right way, they do need to manage their customers damn seriously!

Mary Holmes-Burgess

Rooms were quiet and clean We just needed a place eto lay our heads for the night as we were just traveling through The beds were a little hard but pillows were comfortable

Room was perfect for the two of us and there are plenty of places to choose from for eating We needed to get up and going early and they gave us a wake up call Would stay here again if we were in the area

Rob C

The room above ours sounded like there was a soccer match going on until late in the night Front desk absolutely refused to address the problem after hours of asking We stayed two nights and will never stay at this Holiday Inn location again

Typically Holiday Inn has great rooms with staff that care… not this one! Don’t waste your money here, go check in at any of the other hotels within a 1/4 mile of this place Room was semi clean and breakfast was as advertised

Wonderful The people are genuinely nice and fun but professional Christine is amazing! The rooms are clean, spacious and well appointed

The beds and pillows are very comfortable for a hotel The public areas are open and inviting with comfortable seating options, room for kids to run, wide halls and a general feeling of comfort There are two separate outdoor areas to enjoy The pool is clean, having the exercise room and laundry was great for our extended stay One of my best experiences ever

Reginald Gwynn

What an absolutely amazing 1 night stay Quick trip to the capital city of Raleigh for a birthday celebration Our front desk associate made my wife feel super special because it was her birthday celebration and she was super nice to the both of us

The rooms are super spacious and squeaky clean! Felt like a small apartment with all of the amenities, great hotel Most definitely coming back!

J Sawyer

Very clean room, as well as lobby, patio areas, pool, elevator, etc

We felt safe and secure with the extra measures of room key access required for elevator operation and entry into the hotel after 9pm Quiet and orderly fellow guests Comfy bed, sofa pullout for the little one, plenty of spaceespecially the kitchenette It’s as if they did an AirBnB market analysis to pinpoint what guests want and reimaged the typical hotel room Each inch of the room is intentional, user friendly, and did I mention clean??!! We also enjoyed the clean HEATED poolThe surrounding area was not important for us on this trip, but from what the eye can see it’s a ghost town from what it use to be The mall is less than desirable, however the Barnes & Noble with a Starbucks inside it was great! We ordered food delivery for supper and enjoyed it on the hotel patio

My Son and I were very pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms and the excellent customer service I would love it if there was a pool there and if the customer’s had the option of smoking rooms available It’s inconvenient especially when you’re a Senior Age and have to go outside to smoke and there’s not even a chair or table to sit down

However, I would recommend this one and it’s priced reasonable 🥰❤

The Courtyard Triangle Town Center is the BEST hotel in Raleigh, hands downThey ever so graciously hosted my post-wedding reception this past weekend and made everything so incredibly easy, beautiful, and an absolute success I am no event planner by any means, so at points where I found myself freaking out over the details, Jack (sales) was there every step of the way

He was extra communicative, detail-oriented, and thought of things even we had forgotten to consider – everything you’d want in a sales coordinator Jewel and Brandi made the most amazing food, that made all of our guests (even the pickiest eaters) very, very happy The staff at the front desk during our event were patient, friendly, and incredibly accommodating as well – everything was simply perfectIf you’re looking for a place to do business, gather with family, or just stay overnight, look no further than here Worth absolutely every penny and you will not be disappointed!!!

Charlotte Beecher

Don’t stay here Prices are up Business is up…yet, They have stripped down amenities to the bare bones (1

one cup of in-room coffee and no complimentary coffee stand in the breakfast area, 2 Minuscule slivers of soap, 3 No complimentary breakfast or snacks…not even cookies Plus – it is noisy While we have been Marriott members for years, This is our last stay hereOn the positive side, it is clean and the oversized chair in the room is nice

Brandon Bowlin

Nice rooms No consistency in a restaurant or bar Obnoxious service

Over-charged for the value Was threatened by staff they would call police if I didn’t leave within the next hour when I had overslept I had paid and stayed for four days at that point They could have just asked if I wanted to stay another day and I would have paid I’m not the type of person that takes threats lightly, especially without asking appropriate customer service questions first I’ll never stay at another Marriott

Best Hotel Staff and Room I’ve been in during my stay in Raleigh Especially that area of Raleigh Close to downtown

Only problem was the powered eggs; they were so bad but the service and cleanliness was top notchEven lost my wallet and had Dashawn ( day time hotel staff) walking the parking lot to find itIt was in my room the whole time but came down and gave him a thank you gift for helping easy my mind🙌🏾🤗 Great stay great beds and clean room Fresh AC

Brandy Mozingo-Thompson

There were several things that stacked up that make me give this hotel as low a review as possible When we got to our suite, the key cards didn’t work so we had to go back down and have them re-scanned When we were able to enter the room we immediately noticed a foul smell

After we did some investigating, we found a large bag of days-old takeout food that had been left under the sink in the kitchen along with several other items of garbage The front desk staff immediately came up and cleaned and sprayed and were super apologetic about it which I appreciate Our room was on the 4th floor and the windows were left open And the morning after we got there, we quickly realized there was no shower curtain We checked out two weeks ago and I was told a manager would call me back I’ve called back to the hotel and I still have not had anyone reach out to me Despite the gorgeous room our stay was severely affected by the smell, cleanliness, not being able to shower and lack of communication from management despite all of my requests

Kristin Latorella

By far the worst experience at a hotel We had confirmation for 2 rooms but they only had one available We had four adults and had booked 2 rooms with king beds

We had to get two roll away beds which were extremely uncomfortable Mattress covers were stained Back doors were propped open for anyone to come and go freely The elevator was broken

I have never wanted to write a review in my life until I stayed at this place I been to many many hotels and this one is the worst First off the toilet kept overflowing even if you had fluid in it and someone with a stomach condition like myself it was a struggle I had to ask the front desk in front of many people for a plunger and they just handed it to me instead of dropping it off at my room The toilet still kept overflowing no matter what so if you have any stomach issues I recommend not staying here

The smell in the room is very over powering The staff was helpful besides one person when I was checking in was a bit rude Overall it’s a never again stay hotel without a doubt

Madedo Champagnie

For starters i like that the Fairfield Inn & Suites is located near shops and about 15 mins from Crabtree Mall as the other mall closest to the hotel is a joke, though not their fault This was our first time at this hotel and we were visiting from out of state When we walked in we did not receive a warm inviting welcome from the lady at the front desk, but later she appeared to be nice

We had about eight or nine rooms reserved for the weekend Upon entering my room I did an inspection and saw immediately that the vanity mirror in the bathroom was cracked The ceramic coating in the toilet was rubbed off to where there was a black mark in the toilet The seat on the toilet was a little loose and the sheets on the bed were not fresh sheets as they did not have the clean crisp fold lines in it, and they looked as though they had already been slept on My husband called house keeping who sent a housekeeper to change the sheets and of course, she was not happy to say the least The closet door in my son’s room had a long white scratch mark, and last but certainly not least, we were going to our event on Saturday afternoon, i got to the lobby and as I was walking in the lobby was greeted by a big roach crawling across the lobby floor from the counter across to the seating area I do not know if that was the same roach my sister saw that morning in the breakfast area Im very disappointed and i can promise you that I will never stay at this hotel or recommend it to anyone I pointed out the issues to the staff but I doubt that they are notifying management and so, I’m making it public for all to see I had no idea that when i made the reservation, we would be checking into the roach motel

Bon Cropper

Not too impressed with the staff, my room or the noisy location The view from my room had a big concrete-slab looking thing across the window which was the portes-cochère It wasn’t a desirable view at all, although the room itself was fine

The staff that greeted me talked so fast that it was impossible to understand him The location is near an exit and it was very loud at times Not planning to return

Terrible experience Called beforehand to let hotel know that we were checking in late and they said it would be fine When we arrived, the lady at the front desk said our reservation was completely cancelled

She gave us an attitude and had absolutely no idea what she was doing She had us waiting 30+ as she went in the back and accomplished nothing and gave us no explanation, just complete silence as she typed away aimlessly She worked 8/29 and worked around 4am Come to find out, she charged us and marked our stay as complete even though we did not stay Horrible horrible customer experience Stay away

Susan Bosworth

We have stayed here before and it was fine But not this time! We took off the cushions of the pull out couch and a roach skittered away beneath it, then we opened the couch and old used linens were still on it Then, sitting on the king bed, I had at least 5 ants crawl over me

While getting ready to leave, there was an ant on the toilet The bathroom sink drain wasn’t working right so we kept having to wait for it to drain to use the sink again The bathroom sneaked ofMildew, as well Overall, very disappointing! Wont stay here again!

Carrisa Hobbs

Currently here for a family reunion and we basically blocked a couple floors out Well more than a few have had dead and live roaches As I type this at 3 am we have found another

The first was found last night and we were gaslighted and told it was a water bug guess what they don’t have antennas Nice try The lady at the front desk was no help and not pleasant Only thing that was nice was the service/ cleaning staffBreakfast is trashPool is brokenGym is smallAnd they have roachesStay somewhere else I am a Marriott rewards member and this by far is my worst experience

I stayed on the 3rd floor and was impressed on how clean my room was Kudos to their cleaning team for how clean they keep the rooms I took my two boys to the pool as well and they had fun, the water was a bit cold for them but we got to play for a little

Its in a convenient location from I-95, gas stations, Starbucks, the outlets, and restaurants Golden Corral is within walking distance to the hotel and was actually pretty good when it came to quality of food and cleanliness as far as buffets go If I have any additional planned trips I will definitely stop here again no questions asked

Katelyn Fernandez

Room was extremely clean Elevators ran fast didn’t have to wait forever for a ride The indoor pool room was kept warm which made it more enjoyable for the kids

Small availability of pool towels There was a a gym and the lobby was large and big enough for everyone to have a seat at breakfast I would recommend anyone to stay here over any other hotel in the Smithfield shopping area We will stay here again the next time we need to come to Selma

Derek Boggs

Genuinely one of the best hotel stays I’ve ever had! The staff was incredibly friendly, the rooms were large and very clean and very well appointed, the setting was secluded and relaxing, and it was very quiet It’s both family and adult friendly, and the 24 hour coffee was delicious I can not say enough good things about this hotel

I will definitely be back!

The staff group were incredible I received a cold bottle of water when I came and when I left Breakfast was good, and the bed was great

Little dated hotel, but due to Covid understandable The staff just impressed me so much I have never written a review before, but the entire staff deserved itThe manager should be proud It’s hard to get a staff like they haveI don’t stay in the area often, but will never stay anywhere else

Friendly staff, clean facilities, and great location The restaurant had good quality food and excellent service The rooms are spacious and clean

I would recommend this hotel to anyone It’s also the only place I have seen a top stop spinning standing straight up It didn’t fall over Then it happened again Very well balanced top I guess I made it from washers, nuts, and bolts

We came to the hotel with a large group of teens for a Robotics Competition The hotel was so friendly and accommodating! We came back and used the lobby area for dinner on Saturday night I always feel a little concerned because it is a lot of kids and a lot of food

The attendant at the front desk was more than helpful-she asked if we needed plates, utensils, serving pieces, she was wonderful! She also knew we had a large group of kids and had gone out during the day and purchased some games for the hotel to keep so that our kids would have something to do in the evening! I can not thank her enough or recommend this place enough Thank you!

We stayed here in August 2021 for a wedding There are no bells and whistles, but it is what it is We always bring our own cleaning products, which we did have to use particularly in the bathroom

They offer free breakfast with your normal options of bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles and coffee However at least during that time (Covid restrictions I suppose), you have to wait in line and take your breakfast to your room on styrofoam plates Overall this hotel can do better with its appearance At least with our room, the ceiling showed signs of past water damage That should have been taken care before anyone was booked in that room
