Very welcoming, patient, and friendly staff, always willing to help. The free shuttle service was so useful and convenient. The free cookies and fruit were also nice. Definitely 5 stars, made my trip very smooth

Fair rate, offers special medical rates if you are going to one of Duke hospital and clinics. The room was well cleaned, good space, confortable. Good parking lot, they give you one parking license during your stay for free. Perfect location if you are going to Medical Duke facilities.

My husband and I stayed here for 9 days during the month of March because we had a friend at Duke Hospital and wanted to stay close by. The location is perfect if you need to be close by the hospital. The hospital is a short walk away (one block) or you can take the hotel courtesy shuttle that will... More

We have been going yearly for over ten years with consistent satisfaction! The people at the front desk have always been kind, and the rooms are always very clean. Prices are good for such cleanliness. Nothing ever looks old or worn, and the TVs have recently been upgraded. They have cheaper rates for people needing to use Duke Hospital, too.

For a convenient location near Duke, this hotel should serve nicely. The room was clean, quiet, and reasonably comfortable. The bathroom was more than adequate, King bed was firm but comfy enough, extra pillows, recliner for watching the nice flat screen TV, free Wifi worked well. Easy to park and short walk to elevator from parking lot. Acceptable value for... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night. We chose hear for the location and reasonable price. We needed to be near Duke. I made and paid for the hotel several weeks in advance. When I arrived I was asked if I was paying cash or credit. When I said that I had already paid quite some time ago,... More

We stayed in the renovated section while my wife attended a medical conference nearby. There is a shuttle that will take you anywhere within 2-3 miles of the Duke Medical Center campus. It's true, the experience is no frills, no fuss. Instead, you get authentic people doing their job to take care of you. We didn't try the café (breakfast... More

WE purposely stayed here because of the location, we also purposely paid more to stay in the "renovated" section. Well if it was renovated it was in the 80s. Now the room was a good size, the bed was fine, Air Con worked well (important because of the 94% humidity on a 23 degree/73 degree day. Staff were nice enough,... More

We stayed in the Brookwood Inn when my son was having surgery at the Duke Med Center and had to stay there for a few days. It was a great location since it was an easy walk to the hospital. I was also able to go for morning runs on the Duke campus which is very nearby. The hotel itself... More

The employees were cool. They realize that you are staying there because of Duke University Hospital so, they expand their understanding for things that can go wrong. I stayed in Tower 2 which is still in need of some updating. The room appeared clean but very dated. I got a medical rate which was reasonable due to the location. If... More
