We came for a quick visit to see our son who is a student at Duke University. The location was close to the school. The room was average, what we expected for the cost. The bathroom was disgusting! We could not shower. Mold everywhere, the toilet rocked. I could not sleep because I having a feeling like there were bugs...

My husband and I stay here when we come up to the area for business. It's clean, comfortable, and extremely reasonable. The rooms are newly renovated and the pool is very large. We'd recommend this hotel every time!

We needed a place to stay during college visits and this hotel is in an excellent location. Many rooms are being renovated and we stayed in one recently completed. Very nice for what you'd expect from a budget hotel.

The hotel was nice, but not over-the-top. Beds were very comfortable. Light and noisy from outside was a drawback for me. Also, the water pressure for the shower could be much higher. For one night this was a great deal.

How did I miss the other reviews before booking? The room was very shabby and dirty. The hotel room door was hard to open and close. The bathroom...I want to forget that experience. The water was inconsistent, both in temp and pressure. The walls are paper thin. The decent thing to do is to put this building out of its...

We assumed that going cheap in Durham would take us the distance. That was a mistake. The place is quite simply not to even mid-range standards. Room was dirty when we got there, the hotel seems like it has seen better days, and we heard things inside the wall (animals?). If you've traveled a bit, and are used to basic...
