This was at least my fifth stay at Duke Tower, each time for 2-4 weeks, since 2007. Pluses include a spacious one bedroom condo with serviceable kitchen and room to socialize. Great beds. Nice staff. Wonderful pool and courtyard. Provides a homey feel ... Not a hotel feel. Minuses include the aging rooms, including HVAC and water issues, nonfunctional Internet,... More

We had to go to Duke regional for a surgery of mine so it wasn't a vacation, but I found these rooms at this hotel and it looked much more comfortable than a regular hotel. They also had a medical discount. The courtyard was awesome and they had a giant chess board and putt putt for my daughter while I... More

We were there due to a family medical emergency and needed a short-term stay for a couple of weeks. The first room we were placed in (Room 131) had a horrible smell when we walked it. I assumed it was a cleaning solution. But when we came back that night it was still strong. Exhausted we went to bed and... More

This was a great little find. Built in an old textile mill but with a classy courtyard, in many ways epitomises the gritty elegance of Durham itself. Nothing classy but very functional and reasonably priced. The hotel is situated fairly close to everything in Durham (but then again, I think most everything is situated close to everything in Durham), 5... More

Very clean, rustic, older facility with nice community feel. Just not for me. Never felt 100% safe. We were on the first floor near the parking lot entrance, a lot of noise. Beautiful pool. Neighbors mostly medical families having treatment at duke.

Our 1-bedroom condo was clean. The furnishings and fixtures are old and dated, but everything worked. Our kitchen had only minimal dishes and silverware, just enough for our family to have a meal. We made good use of the laundry room. The pool was lovely, the location is good, and the price is right. Just don't expect luxury.

We stayed at Duke Tower for four nights in June 2014. It is a really cozy and comfortable place to stay, with a lovely courtyard and a relaxed feel. We enjoyed the spacious room, the reliable wifi, and the comfortable bed. We also really appreciated having self-serve laundry facilities onsite, and a nice pool to cool off in before bed.... More

Recently stayed here for a family gathering. We used 7 rooms. We discovered that the kitchen utensils varied by room. Additionally the type of furniture varied as well, There were coffee filters but no coffee available. The breakfast for 5 dollars is just bagels and coffee the sort of stuff you will find at a Super 8. All rooms were... More

Everything inside the condos are fairly dated, but they are clean and you can't beat the location or price. Plus, having a living room and kitchenette are nice features as are the pool and games in the courtyard. Great place for families and those with pets to stay. The management is very responsive-- we had a problem with our AC... More

The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The courtyard is a treat when the weather is good. It is not the newest place but for the money it is excellent value on an extended stay. Very convenient to Duke and both 9th Street and Broad Street.
