Rather a great place to stay if you are going to be in a conference at Duke's: First of all, a good price/quality relationship, clean and warm bedrooms, great food. Also, you have to right to have access to a "lounge" area with your room key: in this area there is a lot of free food: coffee, tea, chocolate, water,... More

Have stayed at Thomas Center on Duke campus many times. Perfect place to stay for football, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, and other events. Reserved parking for guests, short walk to Wallace Wade Stadium and Cameron Indoor, other venues equally accessible. Exterior of guest rooms is sort of 70's southern motel style, but is very well kept and guest rooms are quite... More

This is a great place if you are doing work or visiting on campus at Duke. Don't be put off by the mediocre exterior of the guest room area, they are quite good for a conference center and they more than fulfill all your business needs. The service is beyond top notch and the location is nestled away, which made... More

Location: on a quiet cul-de-sac right across the street from the Duke athletic fields/stadiums and the shortcut footpath to the center of campus. Next door to the Fuqua Business School and also a couple minutes walk to the restaurant at the Washington Duke Inn. If you have a meeting at Duke, it seems likely you'll find this place listed in...
