    Guest Quotes
    "I loved so many things about the Rizzo Center that I would have a difficult time choosing one. I loved the basketball court that my son played on with friends. I loved being able to rent bikes and all the bike trails around town. I loved the quiet and peaceful grounds and enjoyed going for a walk/run in the morning. The snack bar was probably my kids favorite part! Including breakfast was also a favorite of mine. And also the free transportation within a five mile radius. But maybe my most favorite part was the exceptional kindness and professional employees at the Rizzo. Actually, the price may have to be my favorite, but if it didn't have all of these fabulous qualities, it wouldn't matter if it were free. This place really cannot be beat!"

    "A hidden gem near UNC! The Rizzo Center is the type of hotel you have been waiting for. The staff is attentive and truly wishes to serve you. This hotel met or exceeded our expectations the entire stay. The size of the room along with the cleanliness and quality makes for an exceptional night sleep. We enjoy the room, the staff, and especially the 24 hour pantry. Who doesn't love a good Klondike bar? You will not be disappointed."

    "There were unexpected surprises around every corner. Ice Cream and popcorn in the guest pantry areas. The grounds were fantastic, staff was super helpful and nice. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and family. If I ever find myself in that area again I will revisit for sure. "
