“Don't do it.....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2007

I am not sure why this MOTEL is stuck in the 70's, but it is. The fixtures, the smells....awful. I was provided the Presidential Suite, but when i walked in, i felt like i had morphed into Boogie Nights. I am not sure this property has been upgraded since it was built. The outside is deceiving. The back entrance has obviously been pried open, and it is filthy! The carpets are in dire need of steam cleaning, and the stale smoke smell is horrendous. I would never stay here again.

The continental breakfast is NOT EDIBLE!
Even on non-smoking floors, as soon as I get off the elevator, it REEKS of smoke. Please, don't learn this the hard way, do not stay at this hotel. I'm uncomfortable, I'm on medication for the cigarette smoke, and I have to drive elsewhere for breakfast every morning.

  • Disliked — Smoke Everywhere and a terrible breakfast

I booked this hotel through Hotwire, because they gave it a three star rating. Three stars, it is definitely NOT. When I first checked in, they sent me to a room on the 4th floor (reeked of smoke), that was already occupied. Not a good start!! When I finally got to an unoccupied room, the room was clean, but extremely worn and minimally furnished. Additionally, the hotel was full of rowdy construction workers who were working in Durham. Apparently local contractors like to use this hotel for their workers. Be leary of Hotwire's star ratings!!!
