We got a last-minute room at this hotel through Expedia on the road, an hour away. Clean rooms, extremely convenient location and very helpful/friendly staff. All one could ask for in a room for the night.

I've travelled a good bit the past month on business and luckily haven't had any poor hotel experiences. I just had a 2 night stay aY Holiday Inn Express in Dueham, NC. It's everything you would expect from this long-running chain. Rooms are spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable beds, good shower pressure.

After driving all day, this place was a sight for sore eyes! My only complaint was the highway noise from the Interstate. Ask for a room opposite the highway with an odd number. The breakfast was good for what is provided and has some great options for everyone.

We stayed here for a week over the Christmas holidays visiting family. The staff, from the front desk to housekeeping, was very professional, accomodating and friendly. Our room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. After reading earlier reviews, I was a bit dubious about making a reservation but have absolutely nothing to complain about! The food was good,... More

This hotel is in a convenient location, close to interstate, but far enough away that you don't have a lot of road noise. Staff is friendly, breakfast is standard for hotels. Clean rooms, would stay here again.

Hotel was comfortable but room had a musty smell. Otherwise, all was good. We were told by Holiday Inn central on the phone that they had a fitness center, which they don't. However, guests have privileges at a fitness center near by, if you arrive when they're open. We were also told they have a 24 hour shuttle - which... More

We had a very comfortable overnight stay here. The staff at check in was very friendly, efficient and welcoming. The room was older and on the smaller side, but very clean. It is located within minutes of Duke University.

Without a doubt the nicest staff in Durham! This is an average hotel , convenient location, older, but great staff - definitely a great place if you need to bring your dog along. Breakfast was better than the typical HI Express.
