We ended up staying here by default. We were going to stay at the la Quinta but they would not except our coupon. I'm glad because this place was 30.00 cheaper and had a kitchen. Its close to all the restaurants and we didn't have any problems.

This happened yesterday 1/7/2015. I work for a large well known medical facility in Durham, NC and was in the area for business. I only needed a room for one night. So I tried to find the cheapest, but cleanest hotel I could find. So I booked a room at the Extended Stay America @ 3105 Tower Blvd. Durham, NC,... More

This place is horrible. Unclean....unprofessional. There was animal feces on the floor of the room. Lots of unsavory characters around the rooms. Seems to be some drug and prostitution going on. DO NOT STAY HERE!!

Extended Stay America has outdone them selves with this POS hotel. And you know they know it is a POS. Staff was friendly, but uninspired. And I can understand their pain because they have to come here everyday and deal with a hotel that is about to fall down, equipment that doesn't work and amenities they don't seem to have.... More

The worst ever.. If u stay there bring ur own everything... Including bug spray and pillows.. Everything in there sucked... The front desk staff was accommodating, but the house keepers were terrible... I literally had to buy Lysol wipes and clean my room before settling in, after a long drive from NY to NC... I was given a 20% discount... More

We chose this property based on price an location, and hoped that the Extended Stay America chain would provide a minimal level of quality. Sadly, it was a pretty bad experience. The staff is indifferent at best, and kept me waiting (looking for a fax) for 15 minutes to check in. The lobby and other common areas are dirty, and... More

Booked 14day stay for business, stayed three nights and checked out to move to another location. When my associate and myself arrived; we noted a larger than usual number of staff (7) milling around at 5-6PM'ish yet just after they left, all the outside ashtrays and trash cans in the hallways were overflowing with trash. People slamming doors and stomping... More

My stay at this hotel was terrible. I am from out of town and didn't know anything about Durham when I made my reservation. On arrival, my room was dirty, smelled like smoke and there was a burn mark on our comforter. The bathroom was bad. The toilet ran constantly and the floor was peeling up. When the shower water...

This motel is right across from the big blue glass tower on a quiet street. This is a nice area of Durham, and the motel is fairly new. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the grounds and room, along with the friendly and courteous staff. There is no riff-raff here, and I feel safe and rested. The location is... More

The lobby is very unimpressive and the backlog of people waiting to check in made me think this was not a good choice. It was graduation weekend at local universities plus Mother's Day weekend, so there should have been more than one person working the front desk at 6 p.m. on a Thursday afternoon. And that same person should NOT... More
