HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 March 2017

Beyond what we expected with very fine room, fridge, microwave, and good people at the desk. Breakfast was fine, nothing spectacular, but the place is clean, attractive, and reasonable. Bathrooms are being redone, but ours was just fine as is. This is the best we have seen for the money.

My husband and I came here for the weekend. The service was amazing. They had a great variety of breakfast. The rooms were very clean and they had all the things we needed. The manager was very kind with us. This place was just what we needed!

You know the old saying, you pay for what you get! This rings true for this hotel! Hotel very very outdated!! Faucets in bathtub were broken. I had requested lower level due to artificial knees that aren't cooperating. They put us on the second floor, no elevator. There was nasty stuff all over the wooden headboard. How in the world...

Very close to a Kroger and a food truck with delicious and cheap Mexican food. 5 minute walk to bus stop, bus is at Duke campus in a few minutes, bus fare is a dollar. Plenty of towels in the room and furniture.

It's a nice room overall after he places you in a better room then the first 2. The third time down stairs works like a charm.

My son said the room smelled of smoke. He wouldn't stay there again. I booked it without seeing it. Not cheap. Room was small. He was visiting Duke university. I wanted a place near by. He only spent the night.

We mainly stay at Days inn properties when travelling. This Days was very very well maintained with brand new granite furniture and the whole room was renovated. It was a very very clean place. We also had a room with a brand new bathroom which was awesome. The manager was very friendly and helped with all our needs. Great breakfast...
