    Great hospitality but a little noisy

    Stay was great. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only criticism is the air conditioner is very loud turning on and off constantly. I could also hear the washer and drier in the hallway from inside my room.

    Quaint hotel

    The stay was great. Room was large and clean. Clean bathroom. My only gripe was the on site parking situation is terrible. Deck is tight. I’d recommend paying for the deck across the street if that’s an option.

    Very good place to stay. Stayed overnight for a football camp. Rooms were very clean, service was good and free coffee was pretty good too. Near a few restaurants, Duke University and the hospital. Would stay again.

    Needs maintenance.

    Clean but little to no upkeep. Toilet didn’t flush properly. Door sticks because floor is uneven. Bathrooms are extremely small. Refrigerator did not work. Right across from hospital if that is needed so convenience is great. Otherwise subpar!

    Very convenient to hospital, interstate and Durham stadiums. Room as large, clean and air conditioner worked great. Beds were comfortable with enough pillows. Television was small but adequate. Room had microwave and refrigerator. Tight parking but it was free.
