“Sandpaper towels, noisy at night, no conditioner? yuck.”
Reviewed December 11, 2007

To begin with, my reservations were not made properly. I've made online reservations many times before, so i'm not sure if I'm to blame or if the system somehow screwed up. They did correct the problem at the desk when I arrived.

The room was not cute and modern with bold colors like the pictures I saw on their website. Its just your standard hotel room. I don't travel with soap or shampoo and conditioner since most places give try to give you something decent. Only shampoo and dial soap in the room. No conditioner. The towels are very rough, like sandpaper and there was someone blasting music at 5am which made me all the crankier! The cleaning woman threw away my opened sample package of shower gel which still contained enough for at least 1 or 2 more showers.

The internet use instructions were out of date/incorrect, so you have to call the desk to get the proper instructions-poor.

On the up side, the bed was decent, and the room at least isn't cramped. I would not stay here again. There's got to be better places.

This place was great. Clean room, very comfortable bed. Tried to get hotel closer to airport but they were all very expensive for a one night stay. We paid only $62 for a king room. It was only about 20 min. to the airport. I would definately stay here again at any price. This property is every bit as good as as the Hampton Inns and the Marriott properties, if not better!

Not a bad place to stay. I was booked here through the folks who invited me down to Durham for a business trip. I probably would not have stayed there by choice as I would have preferred to have been closer to the Duke campus and points downtown. But the rooms were very nice; clean, good TV channel selection and free wired internet access. The breakfast was average. The night-time service left some to be desired, but I don't hold that against the hotel. If you need a place close to Chapel Hill and Durham, this is not a bad choice.

This was a one night stay here, and i was plesently surprised. I have never stayed in a La Quinta before and this was a clean bright and friendly hotel. It was as if the hotel had opend only yesterday. The rooms were big and the bed was comfortable. I could not find fault in the bedroom or bathroom. It was deffinatly better than some of the more expensive hotels we have stayed on our vacation. I would highly recomend this hotel to anyone staying in the Durham / Chapel Hill area.

  • Liked — cleanliness of the room
  • Disliked — breakfast was a free for all and not very well run

This was our second stay at LaQuinta and I wouldn't bother to look elsewhere when staying in the Chapel Hill area.This hotel is clean, attractive and quiet. The beds are comfortable and the continental breakfast is very good. The value for your money is excellent. It is close to several restaurants and some shopping. Another plus is it is located on Rte 15-501 which will take you directly toward Chapel Hill...very convenient. You'll be pleased with this hotel.

We were here for 5 nights in April for a visit to our daughter at Duke. The hotel was conveniently located less than ten minutes from Duke. It's on the road connecting Durham and Chapel Hill,and it's only about 15 min from UNC. The property is relatively new, and the rooms were of the quality I'd expect from a much more expensive hotel.

La Quinta has an excellent pool and courtyard, and it's located next to a wooded area, so even though it's just off a main road, it feels a lot more secluded when you're inside.

Beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious and had a luxury feel. Impressive, for $85/night.

We'll be back next year for graduation. I wouldn't consider looking around for another place to stay.

If you are planning a visit to Duke or UNC, this hotel offers great value and is just what you need. You are located 15 minutes from both campuses. Be sure to ask for the college rate when you make your reservation. The rooms are new and very well appointed. It was nice to have a microwave and refrigerator to use. Just one suggestion would be to have fresh fruit, coffee and tea available 24 hours a day. The staff was very helpful and kind. The desk, chair and free broadband internet make very convenient for a business traveler. Great job La Quinta! You will have my business when I return.
