I recently stayed at the Ramada Blue Ridge while in town for a NC State football game. The hotel is so close to the game, within walking distance. As a matter of fact the hotel is within walking distance to several great points of interest. The staff is so friendly and were a great help from giving directions to making dinner reservations. We really enjoyed the breakfast at the hotel restaurant, it was affordable and the food was great! Not to mention the friendliest server we have seen in a long time. This hotel lhas everything if you're planning a trip to Raleigh!
Pros: knowledgeable and friendly staff all around!
