I'm a contractor and I try to stay at the less expensive hotels. I'm typically just looking for a place to rest my head and keep on moving. This is by far the nicest, cleanest and best smelling (100% smoke free) hotels that I have slept in. I NEVER write reviews but for this Red Roof I had to make...

In our way to NY my husband and I stopped in NC and spend the night at this hotel. The room was clean and the bed super comfortable.. we arrived late that night and Rhonda ( if I am not wrong) was very nice and helpful. For sure we will stay there in our way back.

I had a bad experience over graduation weekend like the previous reviewer. Grossly overpriced for starters - $150 for what I would describe as a $60 motel room, in a somewhat marginal neighborhood. It could just be that every Durham hotel rips off graduation parents on that weekend, of course. The room smelled as though a ton of bleach had...

I can't think of a hotel (using the term loosely) I've stayed at in the last 30 years that was more disappointing. We were in Durham for my daughter's graduation and there were limited options or I would have never chosen this place. Please read the other reviews before you book. I wish I had. There are consistent themes in...

We stayed at a Red Roof Inn for the first time because it accommodated our large family close to the Duke Medical School Campus where our son was receiving his doctorate. We were happy with how clean, fresh, well-kept but simple the rooms were. In spite of the proximity to a major road, there was no disturbing road noise at...

I would never stay here again or recommended it to anyone. Elevator broken the entire stay. Had to carry luggage up flights. No coffee in room. Faucet broken when we arrived. Three people, two towels. Management not helpful or even friendly.

It was an excellent experience. From the time I walked in to Check in to the time I checked out. Very clean room with lots of room. The Staff was very accommodating and nice. Will definitely stay again.

I stayed here in March 2015. The front desk clerks swore all the rooms were smoke free, but my room was not. Also, people stood outside my door smoking on the landing all night long. At 2am, a bunch of people hung out in the parking lot. It was highly unsafe and the least sanitary Red Roof Inn I've ever...

Great place, Rooms were very clean, house keeping was very friendly. I had a very comfortable time there. It is very close to restaurants and speeds, and very pet friendly. I would recommend it to anyone.
