“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

All I can say is "Wow". The Staybridge really felt like home for a few days during our stay. The suites are nicely done. Lots of space. Small kitchen, but all you need is there. Breakfast was great. Lots of variety. We enjoyed the hot Oatmeal and yummy waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. The fruit was also good. Hot offerings changed daily. The hotel serves dinner on Tuesdays through Thursday with wine and beer available, as well as soft drinks.

Some folks used the BBQ grills outside to make their own dinner on Friday night.

We needed to do laundry and the machines are free to use. There was a note in the room that if you stay for a week, the do your laundry for you.

The free internet worked well and I used the treadmills every day.
Thank you for such a pleasant stay.

The facility exceeded my expectations! I am a loyalist to IHG as a whole, and have only tried the Staybridge brand once before and was so rushed that I didnt get to even take a look around.
The suites are great, the room have space, are clean, and stocked if you need a kitchen. The halls are quiet, and the exercise room was great. Three of my peers and myself were guest together, and the gathering area in the lobby was great at the end of the day - the space offered us a place to relax, discuss the events of the day, and enjoy a bevereage and snack.

The location is great - there is grocery shopping if you need it, or there are countless restaurants - from formal, to casual, to burgers or fast food. As a matter of fact there is a great beverage store across the street that offered a wonderful selection and great advice on some very unfamiliar wines and beers.

The hotel is just off I40, and 3minutes south of I85 - easy access to Duke of Chapel Hill, and 20 minutes from RDU airport...

I recommend the hotel with out any hesitation - I am certain you will enjoy your stay whether your needs are extended stay, business, or relaxation and family vacation.

Room Tip: As strange as it is - I stayed two different times, once right beside the elevator and once complete...

This was our first stay in a Staybridge Suites. We wound up here after a competing hotel wouldn't accept pets and recommended this place. We're glad we wound up here.

The 1 BR suite is very large for the money. The bathroom is huge and the bed is extremely comfortable. The staff is excellent, and this was the darkest, quietest room at night of anywhere I've stayed at any price. I had the best night's sleep in months.

We only stayed one night, but if we're ever in a place for many days, it will be a Staybridge.
We didn't stay for breakfast, so no comment there.

You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: A 1BR suite is definitely better than the studio and not much more expensive. Unless you're alon...

Overall this place is a gem that is not in the most conveinent location.

Mount Moriah road is just about halfway between Durham and Chapel Hill. If you need a hotel close to either campus this might not be the best choice. However, the hotel is within a very short drive of numerous restaurants (some within walking distance).

This hotel was the cheapest in the area and it was close to where our friend's live. So the location didn't factor for us we only needed a place to sleep.

The hotel went beyond our expecations. The service was great and the hotel was very clean. Cleaning service is handled differently than most due to the fact that this is an extended stay hotel. We had not problems though.

The breakfast is above average and had numerous cold and hot options. The coffee was very good too.

The excercise room was average and good enough for a quick workout. The pool was nice and had a BBQ area with gas grills for use by the hotel guests.

Our room was the studio version with a single bed. It was spacious with a couch and coffee table. All the rooms come with a small kitchenette that has pots, pans and dishes.

There are washers and dryers for use by the guests but we did not use them.

Even though this is tailored for extended stay travelers it suits the needs of all travelers who are looking for value and "bang for their buck"

I would highly recommend this property without reservation to any travelr! I had to be in Durham more than 30 days due to a family member receiving treatment at Duke. They made what was a very stressful time much easier. They cater to all, whether it be vacation, business or and extended stay due to visiting one of the local medical facilities. The overall staff was exemplary! The rooms are cleaned with the utmost care and every staff member was very polite and accomodating to all request! I am now a fan and will use Staybridge properties for all of my travel needs! Very impressive establishment. Stay with Staybridge and you will not be disappointed!

This Staybridge Suites has some definite Pros. But the Con overshadowed the pros. We stayed here for our son's graduation. Price of the standard suite was more than double the usual rate. I'm sure most of the hotels in the region were the same. The Con? The supposed "queen" bed was certainly a double, and was the most uncomfortable bed we'd ever slept on. Hope it was just our suite, since other reviewers seem to think their beds were good. Ours was assuredly not good. The Pros: friendly staff, very clean room, ample parking, conveniently situated, fast/free wifi. The sofa does not fold out to make additional sleep space. I was up in the middle of the night seeing if it did, because I thought a sleeper sofa would probably be a better bed.

Room Tip: Nice flat screen tv and lots of channels available plus DVD player. Ice machine in room fridge (turn...

I stayed here in mid April for just one night and I'm glad I did. The front desk staff was friendly and warm and check-in was quick and easy. The hotel is very clean and the atmosphere is very warm and comfortable. It has a contemporary and updated feel but still feels like home. You'll find nice granite throughout the hotel (including the rooms). The standard room was super spacious and cleaned very well. The color scheme was muted enough to allow for a relaxing atmosphere. There was a couch and a small kitchen area and a queen size bed. The vanity and sink are separate from the shower/toilet and that allows for even more flexibility in this huge room. Plenty of space and options for a long term stay if needed.
Breakfast in the morning was extremely varied and sure to please anyone! All kinds of bread items, oatmeal (with add-ins), cereal, diy waffles, sausage and eggs, great coffee, and juice bar.
I knew Staybridge would deliver because I'm familiar with the brand, my traveling companions, though, were even more impressed because they didn't know what to expect! I will definitely stay here any time I need to be in Durham.

Room Tip: Even the standard room is spacious, so you can't go wrong.
