this hotel is one block from duke medical center and the rate includes free parking for one car.
i stayed at the brookwood inn for a week in early september. my executive king room on the 8th floor was very clean and a good size. the bathroom looked new. the bed was comfortable. the staff was helpful and kind. the rooms include wi-fi, a refrigerator, a microwave, and a coffee service. there is also a safe which costs $1 per night.
there is a free every 30 minute shuttle service (don't think it runs on sunday) available for trips within a 3 mile radius. this distance includes most of downtown durham.
there is also a laundry room, an exercise room, and a coffee shop open for breakfast and lunch. i ate one breakfast there and the food and price were fine.
my medical patient rate was $89. smaller rooms are available for less.
one should know that there is essentially no lobby area.
in the past i have stayed at the millennium hotel (about 2 miles away) for medical visits to duke.
the rooms have become increasingly dreary and dated. on the bright side, the millennium has free parking, a swimming pool and exercise room, a nice lobby area, a large bar area with free wi-fi, a restaurant with reasonable food and pricing, and free shuttle to duke, duke medical center, and southpoint mall.
if a nice lobby and the availability of a bar and restaurant are not critical to you, i strongly recommend the brookwood inn.
