We stayed here last week and were very happy with the location, rooms and the smiley service. The breakfast was good with lots of items. More than the other Days inn locations we have stayed in. Loretha in the breakfast area is a lovely lady. The pool looks so so beautiful. Hopefully we will come back. KEEP IT UP!!!!!!!!

This was one of our smartest moves to stay at this Days inn in Durham.NC. The property is clean and the staff is awesome. The rooms looked newly renovated and we saw they had got an excellence award for 2016. Health rating is also 98.5%. The pool is so so beautiful and lights at night make it even better. We...

It was nearly impossible to get enough towels or coffee. It also appeared that there were people living in this motel. The motel shares a parking...

We had two rooms and both were really musty. There are no fans in the bathroom and consequently there is a small amount of mold visible. The beds were reasonably comfortable and clean and the staff was tremendously nice and considerate but the rooms will never be clear of the musty smell until the ventilation system is addressed

We stayed her for Duke University's commencement weekend. After a rather late decision to attend, Days Inn was one of the few places with any room availability. Check in was fine and the front desk clerk was friendly enough, but soon it appeared that there could be several units with people living here. Our room was dark, dusty, and moldy....
