Caveat: I stayed here for 9 nights, which in hindsight, is a little long to stay in a budget motel.
However, I picked it based on the reviews here, and I have to say I was disappointed. I wanted something close to where I was going to need to be, which it was -- it is very handy to local restaurants, and Duke. I wanted something safe, which I didn't feel all of the time. One evening, I pulled in and there was a cop car there and two policemen investigating something. Yikes! It was relatively clean, although the first night, I could feel something bothering me under the sheets, which turned out to be a broken fingernail...
The beds weren't uncomfortable, but weren't exactly comfortable, either (although the pillows were nice). The blankets were pretty thin, the shower was decent, but had basically cold or hot temps, there was no fridge or microwave in the double bed rooms, which isn't exactly clear when making a reservation. The TV was older and had lines through the picture, and fairly few channels. The wi-fi was remarkably slow. It was noisy in the evenings sometimes, with guests on higher levels "hanging out", drinking on the balconies. A few nights I had to put the blower on to drown out the conversations.
It served it's purpose, and was OK for the price, but I don't think I'll be back.

We are very happy to have Durham Police Department perform security detail at our property nightly. It give many guests a firmer sense of security to know that they are here when needed. Their having a car on our property lets everyone know that disturbances are not tolerated.
We do encourage any guest that has a problem with their stay to report it immediately so that we can correct it. I encourage you to book one of our Deluxe Double rooms that comes with a microwave and fridge on your next stay with us. I hope you choose to come back to stay with us. Thank you again for your patronage.
