Bed bugs

At 2:15 AM we woke up with bits on our arms. We went to the front desk and he move us from 108 to 110. The next day we ask to speak with someone in charge and the wait begins while we wait the are cleaning the room to rent to the next victim because they didn’t spray. Never here again 🤬🤬🤬🤬

Needs some TLC
June 06, 2019

UNC Chapel Hill graduation and everything was booked but the RRI. It was OK for 2 nights, but I would not want to vacation there. Although it's nonsmoking, the room reeked of old smoke - maybe a coat of paint would help? The sheets and towels were scratchy. The location could be better marked. The GPS directed me to go right and then left, but there were no signs for the hotel. In fact, there were a number of trucks parked along the wooded drive and with some of them facing my side of the road, I almost panicked thinking I'd pulled into a truck stop, and/or was driving on a one-way street. The trucks were simply parked there and once I passed them, I could see the hotel. It really should be more clearly marked.

The staff is happy to see me, gal at desk knows me by sight.

The staff is respectful to guests and very efficient. I stay here three times a year. They always try to put me in the location I prefer. I choose this location even though I could probably find something closer to the event that I attend in the area. I choose this location because of the service and quality they have to offer.

Very Clean
May 21, 2019

Had a real good stay, was very quiet and clean. would definitely recommend. The only thing was I wanted to walk to the store but didnt have enough street lights in the street. Other the that front desk staff was good and offer breakfast as well.
