Front office line-staff committed to problem solving. Cable stations need to be upgraded. Surprisely, this hotel did not have a complete lineup of basic cable channels. Too many reboot interruptions too. Door-to-door transportation to the hospital is very convenient.

I have stayed at this hotel regularly over the past 12 years. It is located within 3 minutes walk of a shopping complex with CVS, Harris Teeter, Bueger's Bagels, and so on. I like the ease of purchasing groceries and being able to cook in the room. I am sorry to report that this hotel has been in steady decline... More

Stayed for one night as I was passing through Durham. The staff was nice and helpful. They helped me check in before time and even offered me coffee as it was raining outside. Overall the property is on the edge of Durham and is by no means centrally located. Pretty quite area at night. Rooms are dated and cleanliness is... More

Overall my stay here was satisfactory. I was able to get this hotel on a priceline express deal for 40/night with all the fees. I did only stay one night and was only awake in the room for an hour or two. Everything seemed to be in good order when i arrived and the bed was comfortable. i didn't look... More

Was told at check in that towels would be supplied shortly. After the third time asking for towels I was told that I wouldn't receive any until the next day. At that point I went to Target to purchase my own towels and rags. We had to ask for a shower curtain and toilet paper.

I should have been concerned when i checked in at 11:40 pm on 1/10 that the front desk agent didn't have a spare key to try to make my room check in work. He had to go find another key on a housekeeping cart because the one he tried to make was bent. I was checked into room 366 initially.... More

The people here are very hospitable and go out of their way to assist you. I was traveling three and a half hours to work during the week and then return home at the end of the week. They provided everything I needed and was conveniently located.

Generally my stay at this location has been positive, but this time two of our rooms had no towels. It was not noticed until the morning after arrival and the office refused to deliver the towels to one room, but delivered to the other. Also, over a 10-day stay, no one came to clean. Maybe I had to ask, but... More
