    Great Value, Really Friendly Staff

    We had a really great experience as we had to book our room 20 minutes before we checked in because of a missed flight, and they were still super accommodating. The woman at the front desk made sure we had a shuttle the next morning, gave food recommendations and even gave us her personal number for a shuttle ride back from the airport late at night.

    Adequate and very convenient to RDU

    I just needed a place to sleep for the night before catching an early morning flight at RDU. The price was right, though I would have gotten a better rate online than I did at the front desk. The hotel is very convenient to the airport. The room was clean enough, though a little worn and could have used some attention to cosmetic repairs. The bed and pillow weren’t the most comfortable, but adequate. The complimentary breakfast is minimal and mostly carbs - no protein with the possible exception of hard boiled eggs. So . . . adequate for overnight and reasonable price. Would stay again under similar circumstances but probably not for an extended stay.

    Last minute booking - cancelled flight

    We had a last minute cancelled flight at RDU at 8 pm and were left stranded by the airline. On my phone I booked a double room at this Quality Inn nearby for a decent price. Called for the shuttle and the hotel staff person was really helpful and welcoming - even dropped us off for dinner nearby. The hotel is older so that shows in some ways. Breakfast was decent though limited. All around it was a good experience.

    Great Price and Location for Flying

    This hotel is budget friendly, free parking and a 24/7 shuttle to the airport. Also a Wendys for fastfood eating across the street. Hotel is clean and well maintained. The service was wonderful. We checked out and then drove around shopping, flight for family wasn't until late afternoon and did not want to wait around airport. Even though we had already checked out, we used their lobby with computer and then their shuttle took family to airport, Will stay again.
