Very clean room. Excellent choices for the breakfast. Staff was wonderful! Quick and easy access to the highway without the highway noise. We don't usually stay at a hotel when we are within a few hours of home, but our schedule made it necessary. No regrets!

We recently stayed here on a visit to Duke University. The service was excellent and they had some great spaces to work at in the lobby. The rooms were clean and the beds and pillows comfortable. The only downsides were that we were on the first floor and could hear road noise throughout the night (the rumble of big trucks...
