Service standard in this hotel has noticeably deteriorated since I was last here about a year ago. Apart from overall musty smell in corridors, in room 332, it appears as if someone took a damp cloth and tried to wipe mildew or mold from several areas of the ceiling. The bathtub was not draining properly and I quickly had water... More

Room smelled dank and mildewy. Linens all felt slightly damp. Shower was clogged with brown sludge and would barely drain. It was disgusting. We were too exhausted to flee the night we arrived, but we checked out the next morning and stayed elsewhere for the rest of our trip. There are nicer hotels in the immediate vicinity of this one....

Just got back from a great weekend with my family and youth track club. The Comfort Inn met most of my expectations, but not all. Pros: I must say this hotel was a pleasant surprise for the room and location (lots of shops and restaurants nearby). I also liked the lobby and sitting area (coffee/tea all day) . The desk... More

I traveled here with my team of 12 basketball players. I booked a block of four rooms. Upon arrival I find I receive the keys for our rooms. One of my girls goes to into her room and walks in on a couple in their room! Then in the room next store the same thing happens. When I went to... More

I am so sorry about the mix-up in your reservations; we do have new staff members that are being trained. We hire for personality and those who we think will be good in problem solving and customer satisfaction, then train for the skills needed. Unfortunate, we were sold out that evening and she had limited options once she realized her... More

I stayed here on business. While a good bit away from the destination (Franklin St.) this was still a good choice for a business stay. The clerk assigned a quiet room on the third floor. There were two sets of towels and a comfy bed. The room was quiet with few disturbances, even though we were near the stairs. I... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced room near family and friends. We found it here - it was nicer than expected and for the price - unbeatable. It was also very quiet. As a bonus, we were given a second floor room overlooking a tree in the parking lot, so our view was green and leafy! We will be... More

Our room was comfortable and quiet -- lots of pillows, towels and hot water. The staff was always helpful. Comfort Inn University is located near Duke University and restaurants. Cannot beat the rates with breakfast included.

My son and I attended Admitted Student Day at UNC-Chapel Hill and the hotel was fine for us. The front desk staff was extremely courteous at all times. The breakfast was adequate -- the hot choices were not fabulous, but I'm happy with yogurt and bagels. There were some definite areas that could be improved in the physical condition on... More

Great price for a decent room that was conveniently located very close to UNC. Beds were comfortable, updated decor and the room was clean. The toilet did run off and on all night. We advised the front desk upon checkout and they said they would have it fixed. Hopefully they will. The major drawback was the awful smell of cigarettes... More
