La Quinta Inn & Suites Raleigh Research Park
Pleasant surroundings on the western edge of the Research Triangle Center.
Unlike many Raleigh-Durham budget hotels, this one sits in a pretty wooded setting surrounded by pine trees. It makes a peaceful base for vacationers and business travelers who need easy access to Research Triangle Center. It is also convenient to the airport. This six-story inn has 141 rooms and suites with the usual La Quinta 25-inch TVs and data ports. Suites are good for extended stays, with mini-kitchens and extra-large work areas. There is an outdoor swimming pool, and the fitness center is furnished with cardiovascular equipment. At 1,250 square-feet, the meeting space can seat up to 50. Complimentary breakfast includes toaster pastries and yogurts.
