The Extended Stay America on Ivy Creek Blvd in Durham, NC, was clean and comfortable. Patrons need to remember to ask for any needed kitchen utensils. The staff was very friendly and communicated their desire to accommodate.

Floor was stained and NASTY. Front desk personnel was very friendly and helpful. Location was great with many shops nearby. Some hotel guests continued t hound us for money. Probably would not stay here again because didn't feel safe.

Upon arrival the hotel was alright. It is very basic. The bathrooms dont have hairdryers. Very quiet. Only reason it gets 1 star is for towels. 3 days in a row they were out of towels. I guess housekeeping only comes once a week, so they dont gather any. Dont throw your towels on the floor. The carpet is filthy,... More

The lobby is poorly marked. As if they don't want you to find it. There is a bed in the lobby. Is this a display or where the employee sleeps? Disconcerting and unnecessary regardless. Or poorly planned at the very least. You need a gorilla grip to open the door to the room. The toilet is already backed up. Here's... More

I'm glad my wife and I didn't have to stay here long as we only stayed here as an overnight for an interview in the area. I'll say this the first thing that struck me was the smell of the place. Looking around there was dust in the corners, hair in the bathtub and sink and deplorable nastiness all over... More
