Beds were very comfortable, rooms were quiet,staff was friendly and food was very fresh at breakfast. The only compliant I have is there was not enough parking. I had to park at a nearby business during my stay.

We stayed here before, several years back. The hotel is in good shape. Staff are great. We had issues at check in that were quickly resolved. Breakfast was good. Lots of selection and very fresh. Hot items, including turkey sausage and fresh pancakes, along with cold items like yogurt and cereals.

The hotel has a great location near the heart of Durham. The front desk staff was very friendly and willing to help. The morning breakfast was enough to get us on our way and the rooms were very clean.
