“"Convenient for extended business travels"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

I came to Durham, NC for a job contract and needed a short term residence that provided some flexibility. The Extended Stay America - Highway 54 - Durham, NC hotel has proven to be a great choice. The overall appearance may seem basic at first, but the hotel rooms are clean & comfortable and the value is unbeatable.

The staff is very helpful and corteous. Housekeeping and maintenance in particular are top notch, regardless of the price level. All of the hotel staff are quite pleasant and very willing to help as has been echoed by other reviews.

The rooms are well appointed for the price. Hallway traffic can be heard occasionally, but it is reasonably quiet and the beds allow for a good night's rest. The WiFi is reliable and the amenenties in general are a pleasant surprise for the price point.

Modifying your reservaction can be a bit tricky if you've booked through a different company, but I'm new to this so more seasoned travellers likely know the drill.

For business travel, the location is ideal and shopping/dining are never more than a 5 min drive away.

You cannot stay any closer to RTP. This place is one block from Triangle Drive, where all the great companies of Research Triangle Park are located. The kitchens are bigger here than the usual extended stay places. It feels like a full apartment. You can't beat it.

I travel a lot for official matters. I always prefer Extended Stay America. This chain has maintained same excellent standard across their hotels. Clean rooms, Kitchen available, secure, and very cordial staff. Above all, the rates are very competitive in the market. Full worth of money spent.

It totally worth the money. You get WIFI, grab-n-go breakfast, nice room with all the basic amenities (TV, kitchen, Recliner, etc). However, what I loved most about the hotel is staff's friendliness. They are always happy to help you whenever needed. I had to check-out one day early and they returned the money that I had paid in advance. No questions asked. I would definitely like to stay here again.

The hotel staff has made us feel as we have a home away from home.This will always be our first choice for all of our return trips. We love our new family we have with the amazing staff. I would recommend the extended stay on n.c.54 to anyone especially family's here for long term medical care .

Good: (I'm skipping this to stay honest.)
Bad: Kitchen cabinets broken, bathroom sink wouldn't drain, hallway and elevators stink of tuna, room had a pungent industrial solvent smell, the carpet needed vacuuming, and the staff member at check-in just jabbered away with a couple for 20 minutes, tried to downgrade our reservations, and then had no solutions for the horrible condition or our continued stay. We promptly left and found another place.

Room Tip: Go to the Brookwood Inn, the price in comparable and the accommodations were average, no frills but...
