Comfort Suites – Florence, SC

This particular Comfort Suites is an excellent motel. It looks almost brand new. It’s very clean and well maintained. Our bed was very comfortable, and the room had nice amenities. Our room had free high speed wireless internet, in room coffee, microwave and refrigerator, flat panel, high definition TV with cable. There was a pull out sofa bed in our room.

There were many good places to eat within walking distance nearby. The hotel also had great promotional rates.


Holiday Inn Express – Birmingham, AL

I took a trip to Louisiana a few months ago and stayed at this Holiday Inn Express in Birmingham. I found it to be the best and cleaness motel I had ever stayed at. I liked it so much that I stayed there two times going and three times coming back.

This Holiday Inn Express is located off I-20 at exit 133. They offer a free Express Start breakfast featuring hot items. The suites have a pullout sleeper sofa, microwave and mini-fridge. They offer services such as free airport shuttle service, free high-speed Internet access, on-site fitness and business centers, outdoor swimming pool and meeting rooms.

I recommend this motel to anyone that’s looking for the best. I took my trip from Virginia.

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.

The rooms are basic suites, very neat, clean and comfortable. I think it was a good value for the traveler passing through. It’s also convenient to I-95

This Holiday Inn Express is a fairly new hotel, so it’s clean and comfortable. Rooms are typical of any discount chain. They offer free local phone calls, complimentary continental breakfast Bar, large TV, and hairdryer/iron/board in all rooms. Also complementary USA Today. They have an outdoor pool and a fitness center too.

The hotel is just off I-95, Exit 171 on Sheraton Drive. One bad point… We stayed there last year and there were no restaurants within walking distance. Otherwise, this is a great hotel if you’re staying in the Roanoke Rapids area.
