This is the worst hotel I have ever been to! Went with a group of ladies for one night. The rooms smelled bad, one room had burn marks on the pillow case and a blood statin. My room was by the trash dump, awful smell along with a bug walking acroos the floor that my friend killed. Her room had... More

Thank you Jackie for making our stay great! I will back because of Jackie. We used a coupon and were satisfied with the room and service. The walls are thin so we asked to be put away from other people.

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

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

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.
