Tired, dismal and worn out. Having stayed on the Super 8 in Ashville for the previous 3 nights and been very happy we thought this hotel would be similar, how wrong we were. Urgent improvements need to be made everything was worn-out and investment in redecoration and replacing the outdated furniture needs to be done. To be fair though the cost was very reasonable so I guess you get what you pay for. The one highlight is the Thai restaurant which is only about 100 yards away, the food there was excellent and very good value for money. Don't miss the fresh spring rolls which were wonderful. Cant comment on the breakfast at the Super 8 as it didn't look appetising and we thought it best not to risk it.

Lyme,

I am deeply sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your most recent stay with us here at Super 8 Durham. As a manager my goal is to make sure that we fulfill every guests needs while they stay with us, and on behalf of my staff and myself we'd like to personally apologize. Please know that we are working on the few issues you mentioned so that each of our future guests will be satisfied, and we could not have done this if you hadn't taken the time to write us a review. Thank you. We hope you will give us another chance to earn your business.

room smelled of 40 yrs of cig smoke and the carpet must have been that old. there was a 1 inch gap at the bottom of the door that mice or many other creatures easily could pass through. The continental breakfast was a joke.

i stayed here for the 1 night and had a great night sleep, soon as i walked through the door the staff was polite and bent over backward to make me feel at home, clean and affordable and great location aswell most of the hot spots in towns are within a short distance too.

Im a very picky guy when it comes down to staying away from home but i have to stay i had a great night and everything was perfect, if i am ever in the area again i will stay there again and recommend anyone else to stay there too.
