I really enjoyed my stay here. The place was very neat. They have renovated everything in the rooms and around the property. I really like the service from the employees and the kindness from the manager. The stay was great in my words. I also enjoyed the breakfast they had every morning.

Although an older complex, the room was clean and comfortable. Ken, the owner, was friendly and helpful to myself and others. When the tv didn't work, someone was there w/in five minutes to fix it. Would definitely stay there again.

I stayed at this hotel for the weekend as part of my children's birthday weekend. I relied on the trip advisor rating of 3.5 to secure the booking.

My husband had an apt at Duke and we decided to come up the day before since we'd never been there. The Days Inn is maybe 5 minutes away from Duke, very convenient. The room was clean and we had a nice quiet stay.
