We had a niece graduating from Duke Law and decided to attend her graduation at the last minute. With all hotels booked, we could only get a room at this Econo Lodge and thought we could sweat it out for one night and fly out the next day. WRONG! The first sign was scary as the reception area was locked... More

A perfectly serviceable budget hotel with adequate facilities and clean rooms at fair prices. The continental breakfast is a sad joke, powdered eggs, instant coffee, grocery store pastries (and cheap ones at that). But given the low prices, I can't complain. Not a pretty or impressive hotel, but it is a clean place to sack out a night.

A short overnight stay . No coffee pot or iron in the room but there was coffee in the lobby...toilet paper roll in the shower. Comfortable bed. Its a good place if you just need a place to sleep for a night. Side note: DO NOT eat at the waffle house next door!!

We spent 2 nights here and were very comfortable and satisfied. The only amenity we missed was a coffee pot in the room, but pleny of coffee was available in the lobby. Not a bad deal at all for the low nightly rate we paid.

The room was clean and comfortable enough, about what you would expect for the price. However, the location, though convenient, was horrible. I felt very unsafe at this motel from loud sounds in the parking lot. I looked out at about 11:30 p.m. though the peephole and there were about 20 youths loitering in the parking lot, swinging their shirts... More

My daughter and I visited Durham seeking medical care from a doctor at Duke. I told the guy that I wanted to rent a room at the weekly rate. He rung up the charge as per day rather than weekly. I corrected him. I told him that I wanted a queen non-smoking downstairs. He said that they didn't have any... More

Since we had to work at Duke University my friend and I decided to stay in this cheap hotel. The room wasn't very big but clean, breakfast was okay, too. Unfortunately this hotel is located directly at the highway. One night we were almost robbed - the staff didn't do anything.
