So so stay in NC
June 11, 2019

I have stayed here in the past and was very pleased but this last time was not so great.. I came to Raleigh for my grandmothers 101st birthday and stayed here because it is pet friendly for my mothers dogs. Check in was quick and easy but when I got to my room, the door was cracked open. When I looked in, I noticed that it was not made up yet. I went back to the front desk and told them They immediately apologized for the inconvenience and gave me a new room. The front desk said they would give me a refrigerator and microwave for the trouble. I really don't care about that but no coffee maker in the room... guess I'll survive... I noticed the ceiling must have had some kind of damage as I see some of the plaster peeled off. Glad I'm only staying 1 night.

Excellent stay

The whole entire staff is friendly. They have to deal with some stupid people that just don't have common sense. The management handles things amazing along with every employee . The rooms are great and clean and friendly

Friendly and Helpful Staff

The stay was shortened by a personal emergency and the staff was extremely helpful. They went above our expectations. The room was clean and fresh. This location is very convenient to major highways and shopping.

Expected better from a location in Cary.

Getting into the room was difficult, as the door required a lot of effort to open. The paint chipping off the ceiling, over the bed was extremely noticable. I however was too tired and went to sleep, and my husband informed me that he called front desk about the remote to the TV not working, and no one showed up to assist. He also pointed out the AC/Heating unit looked like it had not been cleaned, the floors looked like they had not been swept, the rug under the bed had caked on dirt (and what looks like to be gum) on it, and overall everything just looked like the room hadn't been whipped down. The last straw however was when I woke to my husband cursing because a roach had been crawling on his back. We immediately packed up and headed to the front desk. The only reasons I would give it 1 star is because Rick was very apologetic, understanding, and under stress with the system being down. Otherwise, I'd give it a zero.

Convenient place to stay with my pup

I've stayed at this property twice now and have had a really nice experience both times. I'll be back, surely. I appreciate Red Roof Inn's pet policy and have stayed at quite a few around the country. This is one of the nicest ones I've stayed at. Keep your expectations realistic, and you'll find this a very good location for being centrally located in the Triangle.
