Spent the weekend at The King's Daughters Inn visiting my brother at Duke. My experience was outstanding. I stayed in the Parrish room (I believe) and was very please with my accommodations. My room and the inn itself was very warming and much cozier than a traditional hotel. My room was very clean (so was the entire inn) and the... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at KDI numerous times (10+) and recommend it wholeheartedly. The KDI achieves the perfect balance. It's a historic building but has all the modern amenities. It is beautifully appointed, but not stuffy. The owners and staff are warm and welcoming yet respectful of privacy. Part of the fun of staying at KDI is... More

Our visits to this B&B in Durham are some of our best trips! It is beautifully decorated and elegant while still being small and private enough to feel at home. Each room is different but all are perfect! The owners are such fine people and always know us. Everything you might need is in your room but if you want... More

I have stayed here numerous times over the past 4 years and have loved it every time. Such a graceful place with well appointed, comfortable rooms. The staff will assist you with anything (one time even directing me to their local garage to have my car fixed - saving me an expensive trip to the dealer in Raleigh). Breakfast is... More

I stayed here because of its close proximity to the Duke University campus where I was doing research at the library. I ended up having a wonderful experience at the King's Daughters Inn and will return again. All staff members were polite and courteous; the breakfasts were delicious and they accommodate people who prefer vegetarian choices; the Inn is so... More

I've enjoyed three stays at The King's Daughters Inn (KDI) -- two in the summer of 2014 and one in the fall of 2012. I've stayed in two different rooms -- enjoying the varied decor and different views in each -- all immaculate accommodations. Having our own screened porch was nice, and there's also the communal porch. I've delighted in... More

We live close by in Durham and had family in town. This is a very nice inn close to Duke University and downtown Durham. It's quiet and the staff is great. Awesome spot for the family and friends. Our parents needed a room that was easy to access with a walk-in shower and the staff went out of their way... More

It's a beautiful place in a perfect location. My guests stayed here and had wonderful things to tell me about the Inn. For me, the staff was easy to work with. All the requests I made ahead of time were honored such as putting the pack-n-play in a room.

KDI is large enough to accommodate groups, yet personal enough to make you think you're their only guests. We live in Durham and had previously attended dinners and receptions. Our own anniversary night out was pretty special. Its central location allows for walking (or free transit buses) around the Bull City and the Duke campuses. This historic inn was constructed...

My husband and I have stated at the Inn 4 or 5 times. We've stayed in a few different rooms. Our favorite is the Saunders, with the side porch. Has lots of windows and is a nice place to sit and read or just relax. Great breakfast food. Close to lots of great restaurants and other things to do in... More
