Cheap rate BAD room

Posted Sep 14, 2015
Pros: The pool area was large
Cons: Room cleaning and update the property
Location: Durham has many great things Foodie town Duke is near location
The hotel was inexpensive and near our location we needed to be in the the morning .i reserved a no smoking room that smelled of marijuana when we walked in . The ceiling has water damage and was falling in at some spots . The room cleanliness was POOR at the best .shower was dirty so I skipped my am shower .overall room was terrible. The free breakfast was normal "free" breakfast .coffee was bad. Grounds were nice they had a huge pool. I would not stay there again

Lovely hotel with brand new rooms and clean. Hotel staff is excellent and the beds were really nice pillow tops. Very close to duke university. Huge clean salt water pool. I recommend this strongly as the rates are very reasonable.

Good value.

Posted Jul 27, 2015
Pros: The price was excellent, especially since it included a nice buffet breakfast.
Cons: The buildings are old - but it appears they are being reconstructed. The paint work in our bathroom was poorly done with splashes of paint all over.
Location: We stayed there to visit Duke. It is not the best choice hotel for that activity.
The motel was a little difficult for us to find, located behind a Motel 6 and a gas station. It is an older property, but there was renovation and reconstruction work going on while we were there. The lobby, pool, and dining area are all very nice. Our room was clean, comfortable but had a strange smell (maybe from cleaning chemicals to hide the smell of cigarette smoke?) The desk staff were very nice and seem to be working hard to make visitors' stay as comfortable as possible.

Old and falling apart

Renovations going on, but place is in shambles . Two shirtless contractors working on the roof edge isn't going to save this place.

Pros: The staff were wonderful.
The first room we got was under construction. The second room had a sink and tub that wouldn't drain.

Needs Renovation

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: The self-serve breakfast bar had a good selection. One working ice machine was on the second floor but far across the property nearer the office.
Cons: Rm 130 bathroom needs renovation: BR door wouldn't shut; the shower curtain was moldy; the shower diverter was barely adjustable & loose in the wall.
Location: Near shopping, auto parts store, service station and restaurants; near I-85
One night stay in a ground floor room facing the pool. A recent rainfall left the sidewalks muddy with dirt from the flower beds and slippery. There was an exposed rebar tip near the sidewalk. This is a bleak property.

Computer does not work at all and no security on it. When we got there they had the water turned off fixing a break and checked us into a room any way without even saying anything. Hotel is old and needs to be brought up to standard. We would not stay there again.

Stay away if you value your health

Staff was amazing but this had to be one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. Was a Last min. booking. only hotel available at 6:30 in the A.m. There were holes in the wall bent and rusted shower rod.. Shower so disgusting I didn't even shower. Left immediately after finding dead bugs stuck to the bed frame and Windows.. Burned holes in blanket.. I just took the loss and booked somewhere else at 3pm
