LaQuinta Crabtree Inn and Suites – Raleigh, NC

LaQuinta Crabtree Inn is definitely the place to stay. As soon as we got to our room, we noticed we had a telephone message–from the staff welcoming us.

Rooms were larger than your average hotel room, very clean ( our room looked as if we were the first persons to stay there), and the staff was great. They informed us that they had a special until the end of May – so we received a discount on our stay. We had a free breakfast and free USA Today. too They have a heated outdoor pool and spa (seasonal) and a fitness center. Our room had free high-speed Internet access too.

The hotel was located minutes from RBC Center, the NC State Fairgrounds and the NC State University. There were plenty of restaurants, golf courses, museums, and shopping nearby.  The only problem we encountered is that the hotel is a little hard to find. It is located on a side street away from the main road.

Our rates were reasonable, about $75 a night. I would recommend this hotel.

Staybridge Suites Ballantyne, Charlotte, NC

This Staybridge Suites is located next door to the Ballantyne Resort and run like it’s big sister four star resort. This is an all-suite hotel. All the exceptional staff that makes the resort so wonderful are part of the Staybridge Suites. This is a great hotel for either short or long term stay.

The hotel has easy access to I-485 and I-77. The Bank of America Stadium and NASCAR Hall of Fame at both located in uptown Charlotte, and just a short drive away.

I’m a Charlotte Realtor. My stay was 5 weeks! I hated to leave!

Embassy Suites – Raleigh, NC

Three friends and myself planned a “getaway” for a night and truly recieved that when we stayed at Embassy Suites across from Crabtree Mall.

After dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, we proceeded to the hotel to check-in. The wait to check-in was about 20 minutes, which was a little annoying, but the front desk was very apologetic and even sent a gift basket to our room because we had to wait!

The hotel has a Bistro and Bar, a beautiful indoor pool and whirlpool, a fitness center and a computer work station with printing capabilities. In addition the hotel offers complimentary transportation within a two-mile radius based upon availability and to and from Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The suites are two rooms with a mini refrigerator and microwave. There is also a nightly manager’s reception.

Breakfast the next morning was amazing! I have stayed here three times and each time it has been a delightful stay!

Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites – Petersburg, VA

This hotel is one of the nicest hotels in the area. The Holiday Inn Express has clean rooms and is set back from I-95. (You can not hear the hummm of the road, which I feel, is important.) It offers a free Express Start hot breakfast bar that features hot cinnamon rolls. There is hotel-wide free high-speed Internet access, a 24-hour fitness center and a heated indoor pool, whirlpool and Jacuzzi.

There’s a couple of restaurants at this exit, but not much else. Book in advance and you can get substantial discounts. AAA and AARP are also accepted.

Quality Inn – Petersburg, VA

We stayed at the Quality Inn in Petersburg.

Our room was not very well maintained. There was no place to eat nearby. It was only 6pm and the one and only resturant nearby was closed. It was also difficult getting off &and on the interstate. The only nice thing about this Quality Inn was that the desk clerk was nice.

I would not stay here again… I would pick a different exit.
